The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits generally good image quality. The picture is sharp and detailed, though the darker scenes seem a bit undefined, if not slightly smeared in appearance. Colors are rich and well balanced, though pushing oversaturation at times, with fleshtones appearing a bit orange. Blacks are deep and solid. Contrast and shadow delineation should be quite satisfying, despite some definition lacking in the darkness. Some pixelization is detected, but there is no obtrusive edge enhancement. Minor artifacts are noticed throughout, and some film grain is revealed on occasion. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #8 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review summarizes the information I need to make informed decisions about DVD purchases. My DVD library is growing by leaps and bounds, and it's great to have WSR let me know when I may be disappointed with a disc before I buy it. I also like the new DVD release list to let me know what's ahead. On top of that, reading WSR is a great way to keep abreast of new technologies. Sometimes the interviews with those who bring these technologies to market give more insight into the overall demands and future directions of the market.
