The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD appears to be the same transfer as the previously released DVD (Issue 41), with the exception of the new scenes, and exhibits a dark picture that should be viewed in a completely blackened room. Colors are rich, though dark throughout, and generally balanced with deep, pure blacks. Images are quite sharp throughout, though the picture can appear pasty and undefined. Pixelization is often noticed, as are source element artifacts and film grain, but edge enhancement is not terribly distracting. (Suzanne Hodges)
Widescreen Review provides reviews of the latest DVD releases and new video technologies. The widescreen reviews are concise, accurate, and dependable. Frequently, the magazine explains in detail about recent technology and why and how our latest gizmos work. I loved the articles on various display technologies - how they are different, how they work, and how they will replace CRTs in the near future. Widescreen Review has updated my video knowledge more than any other video rag.
