The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits sharp and detailed images with excellent definition and clarity. Colors are nicely balanced with natural fleshtones, rich hues and deep blacks. Shadow delineation is superb with the darkest scenes revealing of good visual information. Some scenes appear overly contrasted. Occasional edge enhancement and pixelization are apparent, but distractions are fairly limited. Intermittent source element artifacts are sometimes large enough to distract. Overall, the picture is impressive, but not pristine.
Not only is the Lost World as bad as Jurassic Park is, but it is almost the same exact thing. The same main page is used, and even most of the links are the same as Jurassic Park's. Like Jurassic Park, this has a few descent items included. The Making of Lost World is good, as are the Deleted Scenes. I enjoyed looking at the models, but only because I am very interested in models of movie scenes. The Magic of Industrial Light and Magic link is also pretty good, because it tells about ILM. Other then that, the Dinosaur Encyclopedia is still included, and still looks the same.Playing the movie is just like Jurassic Park. After the long Universal introduction, you go to the opening credits.That was fun. I guess the big Jurassic Park craze died back when the movie first came out, but they could have at least done something for us DVD-ROM users! I was so excited when I heard we got Jurassic Park and The Lost World, maybe that is why I am so disappointed. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #85 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Well, I've always been attracted by the world of pleasures that we can get from good hi-fi systems and more recently by good home theatre equipments. I was only 20 years old (23 years ago) when I bought a pair of Kef 105.4 reference series loudspeakers at $2,000. At that time, I earned only $6,000 a year, and my mother thought I was really crazy to spend so much money. But I have never regretted it and it is the same for all I have bought since then (over $25,000...). More recently, I have discovered your Web Site on the net, and I must tell you that I was very impressed by this incredible DVD search engine. It was not long before I subscribed to your magazine. I have sent your Web Site address to many friends who share my love for home theatre. I'm happy to tell you that they are also very enthusiastic about it. There is nothing that comes close to it. Iím also impressed by the quality of the reviews; in particular the very detailed commentary about sound and picture. I store on my Pocket PC the Picture, DD, DTS and critics rating for all my DVDs (close to 300...). Now, I'm hooked on your magazine (as well as the Web Site), and I can say that I read from cover to cover. I was also impressed with the way you push forward HDTV and in particular, D-VHS. I MUST TELL YOU THAT WE NEED YOU AS MUCH AS YOU NEED US... I appreciate that you are not just doing your job. I can tell that you are really passionate about it, as I am. In fact, if I lived near you, I would love to be part of your team. So, if I had to summarize my thought about why I read Widescreen Review, I would say first that with your magazine and Web Site, I'm much better informed, so I can make smarter equipment and software purchases for my hard-earned money and second but not least, I feel that I am in a modest way, helping you do the work that is important to push forward (faster and better) the wonderful world of home theatre. Keep up the good work. I am a fan from Longueuil (near Montreal.
