After a breakup with his girlfriend, Ben (Biggerstaff) becomes a hopeless insomniac. Since he can no longer sleep at night Ben decides to trade these eight sleepless hours for a little Cash Back by working the night shift in his local supermarket. During the quiet late hours, Ben discovers he can stop time, allowing him to walk through a world frozen in its tracks. This frozen world is where he practices his passion, sketching nude women. Will Ben be lost forever in a world he can manipulate at will or find love among the frozen inhabitants he studies? (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.34:1 DVD exhibits bold colors, but they are often too saturated. Details are not captured as well as they can be, with the picture oftentimes looking plugged up and underdefined. Black levels are fairly good and shadow delineation is good, but the picture can be inconsistent in this regard, with black levels occasionally looking milky. Pixilation is not much of a problem, although occasionally breakup can be noticed, and edge enhancement, while minor, is noticeable on high-contrast transitions. (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.
