The now anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture does look better than the original DVD release, with improved resolution and slightly more consistent color fidelity, although it still has a very dated look. The image is still hazy and wanting in better contrast and shadow delineation, but it is an improvement. (Danny Richelieu)
No one covers the issues in more detail than Widescreen Review. No one else has the breadth and depth of different review systems on which to base transfer quality opinions. Gary Reber has given more editorial space to important Home Theatre trends and technologies than anyone in the industry, AND he has Joe Kane and Greg Rogers on his staff as advisors/columnists. 'Nuff said.
