The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a nicely rendered picture -- one that is sharp and detailed, with good depth and definition. Colors are rich and well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Blue overtones often give the cold harsh appearance that enhances the storyline of the main character
The Dolby Digital 5.1-channel soundtrack features very nice fidelity and a convincing sense of immersion with the music. This is simply pleasant film sound to experience, in terms of its sheer holosonic nature, notably from Mark Isham
Reason #81 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I saw my first issue in a newsstand two years ago. The movie reviews caught my attention right away. They were extremely thorough with their inclusion of such items as release dates, aspect ratios, and list of main creators like cinematographer, director, and writers. The breakdown of the critic's composite score is very telling and useful. Equipment reviews are extremely comprehensive and tend to cover a greater range of brands than most publications. One Installer's Opinion is a gem. I've been a subscriber for over a year now and have two of your special publications, both of which are first rate. You seem to be a couple of months ahead of your rival publications with reviews, and new equipment announcements are testament to the quality and dedication of your staff. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next issue as always.
