Coneheads, the classic alien-invasion sketch from the Golden Era of Saturday Night Live, gets the big screen treatment with this 1993 offering. Here, we follow Beldar (Aykroyd), Prymaat (Curtain), and Connie (Burke) Conehead who arrived to prepare Remulak
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD, compared to the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 7, exhibits a slightly darker picture, but one that is better defined. Color fidelity is nicely rendered, with accurate fleshtones, rich colors and generally deep blacks. The picture is sharp overall, with nicely rendered detail, though fine details and definition are wanting at times. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely balanced. There is some minor pixelization detected, but edge enhancement is not much of a distraction. (Suzanne Hodges)
