The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a pleasing picture in all aspects of image quality. The picture is sharp and finely detailed, with excellent contrast and shadow delineation. The richly saturated, nicely balanced color scheme exhibits accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. There is virtually no edge enhancement, though when it is noticed, it is generally not distracting. Overall, the picture is easy-on-the-eyes and should surely please. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #63 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I am an older guy who had not bought any A/V equipment for the last 14 years. I was really out of the loop as to what was happening. Did not even own a DVD player until now. This summer, my wife and I decided to build a small home theatre in our basement. Widescreen Review has been an invaluable research partner. The room was completed in mid September and now Widescreen Review can really show its stuff. The extensive DVD reviews are the final word for us when picking movies to watch. The news and equipment reviews keep us current, as we start down the never-ending path of upgrade-itis. Thanks for a great magazine.
