Me Myself I stars Rachel Griffiths as Pamela Drury, who, on her 30th birthday, realizes that she may have made a mistake turning down Robert Dickson
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a generally good picture, with images that are sharp and detailed, but fine background detail and clarity are lacking. Colors are balanced and fully saturated, with nicely rendered fleshtones and deep undefined blacks. Some fine film grain is revealed. The appearance of edge enhancement can be distracting, and pixelization is detected as well. The picture is often wanting in dimension and a more solid, open appearance, but should be generally pleasing.
The Dolby(r) Digital 5.1-channel soundtrack features fine fidelity and a soundfield experience that adequately delivers. The soundstage projects an image that is amply wide and deep with subtle yet fairly effective surround envelopment. Dialogue is nicely recorded, and sounds natural with good spatial integration. The music is also a good recording, with an impressive low-end, but penetration into the listening space is limited. Deep bass is significant at times with .1 LFE engagement.
Reason #25 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I want to see product reviews of home theatre equipment that non-millionaires can afford to own. Reading articles about $50,000 home theatre setups is admittedly rather fun but, in practical terms, the info is really useless to me. While Darling Wife and I make a decent living, there's no way we can spend that kind of money on a home theatre. What I also really like and want to see: Practical advice articles that help people who are at least minimally technically competent to assess their needs and assemble a home theatre. That is, a periodic (yearly? twice yearly?) in-depth look at points to consider and equipment to buy to assemble a good high definition home theatre. Ideally, it would examine several total package price points. If you're willing to spend $10,000, here's what we recommend in terms of equipment and how to connect/install them. If your budget is smaller, here's what we recommend. If your budget is somewhat larger than $10,000, do this instead. Yes, I know you have your reference systems section each month, but an explanatory article would be nice, too. Finally, keep us up-to-date on the development of high definition DVDs and DVD players. This is what I'd like to see.
