DVD General Information
MGM Home Entertainment
For strong bloody violence, some graphic sexual content, nudity, and language
A successful businessman, a generous philanthropist, and a fine family man
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD can be hampered by relatively poor black levels, which makes the image look flat and lifeless, but details in the shadows are delivered nicely. Fleshtones can have a slightly sickly, green hue. The picture generally has a harsh look, and pixilation and edge enhancement is noticeable. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #124 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review for its informative articles and DVD and equipment reviews. Most of my DVD purchases come about after reading your reviews. I was also in the market for an intern projector (cheap) until the DLP projector matured and I could afford the more expensive Runco DLP projector. I went through all of my back issues; I have been a subscriber from your very first premier issue, and came across your article on the Sony VPL-HS10 Video Projector. I was so impressed with this article that I called around town to see who carries them and who had one hooked up, so I could review it. I was so impressed with the image quality for a projector in this price range that I ended up purchasing one, even though I was not in the market for an LCD projector. In fact, I have stopped subscribing to other home theatre magazines because I find your magazine to be more informative and straight-to-the-point. Thanks for your informative articles, and keep up the good work.
