This new anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD offers a much better picture than the previously released non-anamorphic version (Issue 33). Images are sharp and detailed with good contrast and shadow delineation. Colors are nicely balanced, with rich hues, natural fleshtones, and deep blacks. While there is some edge enhancement present, it is not as bothersome as with the previous DVD. Pixelization is also limited, though sometimes the picture has a slightly smeared appearance.

Reason #83 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because itís simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
