Blonde, bouncy Buffy (Swanson) is your typical mall doll, high school cheerleader, and valley girl. But when a dark stranger (Sutherland) summons Buffy to answer to fate, she gets her pink spandex dirty in the graveyard fighting the undead without even breaking a nail. From that night on, Buffy The Vampire Slayer is destined to rid the world of bloodsuckers. (Suzanne Hodges)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a nicely rendered picture that is sharp and detailed. Some scenes are wanting in a little more definition, but overall the picture is quite natural. Colors are rich and well balanced with accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Buffy
Reason #80 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I subscribe to several magazines because each one has a different bias, and they obviously don't always write about the same things. I purchase magazines at the newsstand when a particular article or review interests me enough that it's a keeper. I consider Widescreen Review to have the most professional bias of the home theatre magazines. Whereas something like Sound & Vision, I would consider to be more of a consumer bias. One of the things I like about Widescreen Review is the articles about the industry and technical articles (e.g., room setup). I also like its detailed equipment reviews that tell it like it is. One other item of note would be the DVD reviews. I like the ratings, the short descriptions, and the technical information.
