The Bird With The Crystal Plumage is an edge-of-your-seat
Though sourced from a print, the dated picture is quite solid due to the anamorphic transfer. Viewed in component video, colors are rich with deep blacks, but fleshtones are slightly unnatural. The picture is dated throughout, with images sometimes appearing very soft and wanting in clarity, though images sometimes appear sharp. Print scratches, artifacts and film grain are apparent throughout. The imagery would be unacceptable on DVD without the anamorphic transfer. The anamorphic and letterbox aspect ratio measures 2.20:1.
Reason #93 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
The technical levels of the articles are far beyond most other non-industry publications on home theatre. While I read many of them, WSR is very unique in its coverage, reviews, articles, and the added content of the Web edition. For all of those reasons, WSR is a must-subscribe for any HT enthusiast, and that is why I read it!
