After another failed attempt to enjoy the holidays, Bridget Jones (Zellweger) decides to take control of her uncomfortably unmarried life, documenting everything in Bridget Jones
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture should be quite pleasing, with images that are sharp and detailed with good contrast and shadow delineation. Colors are rich and well balanced, with accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. The picture is quite solid, but exhibits distracting pixelization at times. (Suzanne Hodges)
Much of the Dolby Digital 5.1-channel soundtrack is focused toward the dialogue, but the experience from the multichannel music is amply enveloping and engaging. At times, the soundstage becomes energized and fully engulfing with the music. The dialogue is quite well recorded, albeit also sounding slightly forward, especially with the narrative. There
Reason #9 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
WSR is a terrific resource for anyone interested in keeping up with the state of the art in home theatre. It's the only publication I know of that dedicates not only significant space to discussing upcoming trends, but considerable time and effort is spent pushing those trends towards realization. The home theatre cruise, Joe Kane's technical discussions, D-Theater, and in the latest issue, the movement towards establishing a surround sound recording standard are just a few examples of WSR's leadership. Greg Rogerís review of the Sharp XV-Z12000 made me want to run out and buy it, but last year I bought the Sony HS10 projector (sight unseen) purely on the strength of his thorough, detailed review. I have been very happy with my purchase. It is impossible for me to evaluate all of the pros and cons of a piece of equipment by looking at it in a home theatre shop. It just takes too long to become familiar with operational quirks and to judge how things might be different in my home than in the retail environment. I have bought other expensive equipment based largely on your reviews. WSR is to be commended for dedicating the space in its pages to such thorough reporting. Lastly, your Web Site is topnotch. I use it regularly to keep up with industry news and to look up past equipment reviews. It serves as my filing cabinet for a wealth of HT information. Keep up the great work.
