DVD General Information
Pervasive strong crude sexual content including dialouge and nudity, and for some drug material
Comprised of ten overlapping stories, each inspired by one of The Ten commandments
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD generally looks good, with acceptable resolution and nicely balanced colors. Fleshtones can look somewhat washed out, with faces looking somewhat pallid and lacking in color. Black levels are fairly well rendered, although there are times when they can look somewhat too gray. Shadow delineation is generally good as well, and the picture can have a nice dimensionality to it. (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.
