The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture looks dated with weak blacks, but colors can be nicely saturated, at times. Fleshtones appear slightly orange at times.

Much of what makes the picture generally unimpressive is related to the source, and the image quality is mediocre at best. Still, compared to the LaserDisc in Issue 26, the DVD is preferred for improved color saturation and sharpness. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #92 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is the only home theatre magazine that puts the reader first. All magazines must cater to advertisers to stay in business, but at WSR you never feel that this article or this review was generated because advertising needed a little boost right now. WSR also provides the depth that I like in its reporting and analysis. I still have every copy that I purchased and that's testament to my feeling of the statue of coverage of equipment and movies for the home movie enthusiast. The series on building the Holosonic Home Theatre was very thorough, and Iím currently using it as I build a new home with a theatre room that will closely resemble the one at your editorial facilities. Some of us do truly appreciate your dedication to doing it right. Thanks for producing an excellent magazine.
