Bean (Atkinson) cannot believe his luck when he wins a camcorder and an all-expense-paid vacation to Cannes, France in a Church raffle. But, problems arise in Paris when he is misdirected when changing train stations and he has to find his own way to Cannes. Mr. Bean
The anamorphically enhanced 1.84:1 DVD exhibits a bright, almost washed-out picture. Fleshtones have a pallid appearance, making people look somewhat sickly. Resolution is fairly good, but the image can have a harsh, digitized appearance. Colors are somewhat undersaturated and the color palette favors warm hues of brown and red. Edge enhancement can be recognized at times but compression artifacts are not overly distracting. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #56 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I am most interested in the formats (audio) of DVDs. I buy a DVD, and then it is re-introduced in a deluxe package some time later. I am not that interested in the extras, but the DVD is invariably upgraded in sound. This is usually DTS ES surround but in some cases DTS ES 6.1 (discrete). Most reviews (Home Theater, Stereophile Guide To Home Theater, Sound And Vision) do not address this situation. I am subscribing to Widescreen Review, hopefully, to solve this problem. I am looking forward to my first issue and a long relationship with your magazine.
