The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a dated picture, with images that can be slightly soft and hazy. That said, detail is nicely rendered, especially close ups of those amphibians (and reptiles and creepy crawlies). Though slightly dull and wanting in definition, colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Visual information tends to get lost in the darker scenes. For its age, the picture looks quite good. There are few distractions in the way of pixelization or edge enhancement, though source element artifacts are occasionally bothersome.
Reason #86 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it offers in-depth, techno nerd detail level views and information about technology; integrated with a plain, easy-to-understand newbie explanation. The combination helps keep the inexperienced and experts alike informed, up-to-date, and market aware. Without Widescreen Review, I'd be just another large electronics store item purchasing sheep. Thank you for shepherding me towards the light.
