Controversial, cultish and 1970s cool, Two-Lane Blacktop takes us on an American journey with two drag-racing drifters vieing for each others
The anamorphically enhanced 2.30:1 DVD, viewed in component video exhibits a picture that is just shy of full color saturation, noticeable in black levels. The picture is sometimes sharp, but lacks detail and clarity. Contrast and shadow delineation are mediocre, with little visual information in the darker scenes. The picture has a dated appearance, with exterior scenes appearing washed out. Minor artifacts are apparent, but there is no distracting pixelization. (Suzanne Hodges)
I'm a fairly avid home theatre enthusiast and like to keep up on all of the most recent development and progress relating to A/V equipment and digital media. Of all of the publications related to this topic, WSR is the most complete, most thorough, and has become the champion of enthusiasts, such as myself, in fighting for the best possible presentation of audio and video in consumer electronics and broadcast media. In addition to the very informative columns, I am very appreciative of WSR's equipment reviews and its commitment to providing a relatively honest opinion of each product. It's refreshing to see a review that does not conclude with: If you like red LED displays, don't mind just slightly bright and forward sounding gear, and absolutely have to have to have your equipment in a gold-tone color, you should go to your nearest XYZ dealer and give an audition. Itís reviews like this that leave me mystified as to why people even bother reading these other publications. I hope that WSR continues its excellent work.
