The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits generally good quality, though the picture occasionally looks older than it actually is. Images can be nicely detailed on occasion, but are most often softly focused. Colors are generally well balanced, with nicely rendered fleshtones, though blacks are weak and undefined. While contrast is quite good, visuals in the darker scenes often lack definition. Film grain and artifacts are evident. There are minor distractions in the way of pixelization and edge enhancement.

Our family has made a significant investment in a dedicated home theatre. Upon reading nearly every other home theatre publication, I have found that Widescreen Review has consistently provided us accurate reviews, and as such have built a substantial library of movies and equipment, which we consider “Keepers.” I find the equipment reviews, especially the Subwoofer Special Edition, to be right on the money and a must-have. The video equipment reviews (we are currently in the market for a front projector) are educationally based as well as comparatively based, so I learn about equipment in general while I can compare specifications. I thank you for a publication well worth the cover price issue after issue.
