Compared to the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 26, the THX digitally mastered 2.55:1 DVD exhibits improved clarity and sharpness, though not anamorphically enhanced. Colors are fully saturated with balanced fleshtones and deep blacks, appearing more refined when compared to the LaserDisc. While a nice improvement over the LaserDisc, aliasing problems can be distracting. Viewed along, the picture is wanting in sharpness and detail for generally mediocre visual quality.
Reason #128 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it gets to the details I'm really interested in knowing. It doesn't beat around the bush. I love the DVD reviews and the insightful articles. Besides insightful, WSR seems to be able to put into print some of the latest breaking news in this ever-changing industry within weeks, if not days, of the original release of the news. And last but not least, I have access to the subscription website.
