When the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in the early 1980s
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD shows pale fleshtones, although different shades are delineated nicely. Flesh occasionally has a slightly pinkish hue as well. Black levels are relatively deep, and shadow delineation is nicely rendered. Details are resolved well. Colors are bold and vibrant with natural-looking saturation. Pixel breakup is rarely noticeable, but edge enhancement can be recognized on high-contrast transitions. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #132 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
As an owner of Whole House Audio & Video Inc. (WHAV), I need to stay informed on the latest DVD and DVHS releases and keep an objective opinion on how well they perform. Of all the magazines and periodicals we receive, I constantly find myself reading WIDESCREEN REVIEW over all the others combined. The articles are well-written, thought-out, and accurate. I also find the Editors Couch and the equipment reviews very useful and informative. Thanks for producing a quality magazine without all the BS you find in most other publications.
