After having no regard for the cleanliness of their planet
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD picture is slightly dark in character, but when viewed in a completely blackened room, should present satisfying imagery throughout. Colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues and deep blacks. Once on the red planet, colors shift to warm reddish monochromatic overtones throughout the color scheme. Shadow delineation is nicely rendered, despite the dim character of the picture. Fine details infrequently shimmer on the space suits and clothing, but distractions like edge enhancement and pixelization do not pose much of a threat to the pleasing image quality. (Suzanne Hodges)
I read Widescreen Review because itís simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
