The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a pretty "harsh" picture. Colors exhibit some stylization, with some scenes appearing slightly over saturated, and other scenes soft, with blue overtones. Images are sharp with fine background definition, but the overall appearance is a little hard-edged. Other scenes with bolder colors seem a bit undefined. Some scenes exhibit distracting pixelization, and artifacts are apparent throughout. The bottom line on this DVD is that it sometimes looks really good, but other times it seems overly "digital."
Reason #8 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review summarizes the information I need to make informed decisions about DVD purchases. My DVD library is growing by leaps and bounds, and it's great to have WSR let me know when I may be disappointed with a disc before I buy it. I also like the new DVD release list to let me know what's ahead. On top of that, reading WSR is a great way to keep abreast of new technologies. Sometimes the interviews with those who bring these technologies to market give more insight into the overall demands and future directions of the market.
