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 #72 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love to read WSR because of the straightforward, professional equipment reviews. I also LOVE the DVD reviews. As a home theatre fanatic, I want to know the technical and quality aspects of my future purchase/rental DVDs with just a brief synopsis of what the movie is about. Other home theatre publications spend way too much space reviewing the movie itself. I will make my own judgments on the merits of the movie, what I want from my magazine is some insight on how the DVD will sound and look on my system. WSR gives the reader just that. GREAT mag! Keep up the good work!
