Elmo McElroy (Jackson) had a promising career ahead of him after graduating with a degree in pharmacology. Unfortunately, a little mishap with the law changed all that. Fast forward 30 years to find Elmo working as a master chemist and creator of a little blue wonder drug known as "Formula 51." He decides to find buyers on his own, without the help of his boss, The Lizard (Loaf). But the Lizard and his cohorts will, of course, be hot on McElroy
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a very satisfying picture, with sharp and nicely detailed images. Colors are nicely balanced, with rich hues, accurate fleshtones, and deep, solid blacks. There is occasional edge enhancement that contributes a minor distraction, and finer details occasionally break up from pixelization. The source element is revealing of a bit of grain, but no distracting artifacts. (Suzanne Hodges)The disc also includes a modified 1.33:1 (4:3) version of the movie (not reviewed).
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.
