Additional extras include trailers for other Manga titles, a Manga DVD catalogue, and Web links.
Based on a series of comic books by Masamune Shirow, Ghost In The Shell tells the story of a world caught in the grip of information overload
As with the previously released DVD, this new anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD looks great. While colors can be vibrant, much of the time hues appear understated. The animation has a moody appearance, that can give the illusion of atmosphere (like blurred underwater vision or haze under an interrogation lamp). Some shimmering details are noticed at times, and the animation can have a slightly veiled appearance at times. (Suanne Hodges)
With eight audio options available, this special edition version is sure to impress. Of those eight, two are Dolby
I subscribed to WSR because I finished building my home theatre and no longer need to subscribe to magazines that give ideas on how to build a theatre. Widescreen Review focuses on the films I would like to see and the equipment I would like to upgrade. It is the next step to the home theatre experience.
