The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a soft, stylized picture to enhance the setting of the film. Still, detail is nicely rendered throughout. Colors are warm, with good balance, and nicely rendered fleshtones. Shimmering details and pixelization can be a bit bothersome, creating a digital appearance at times. There are also a few instances in which aliasing problems are noticed. The intended look is nicely captured, but the digital distractions take away from a generally pleasing picture. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #7 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Truth is, there is no other magazine, on-line or in print, that covers the substantive issues, controversies, and current topics of the A/V world with as much relevance and detail as WSR does without forcing the reader to filter out the bias of the reviewer. Some other notable sources of information are top-heavy with reviews suffering from too much coloration: the golden eyes or ears syndrome. I prefer the clinical analysis of WSR with a touch of humor thrown in, to make for better reading. Thanks for giving me the facts and helping me with my buying decisions.
