Sting plays the mad scientist, Dr. Frankenstein, who falls in love with his fresh-from-Flashdance supreme creation, The Bride (Beals)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits a dated picture that is generally sharp, though fine details and definition are wanting. Hues are warm with lots of browns, but touches of reds, blues, and greens add to the color scheme. Blacks are deep and undefined. Contrast seems a bit low at times, and there is limited detail in the darker scenes. The source element is revealing of dirt and film grain. Edge enhancement and pixelization are also noticed.

Reason #132 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
As an owner of Whole House Audio & Video Inc. (WHAV), I need to stay informed on the latest DVD and DVHS releases and keep an objective opinion on how well they perform. Of all the magazines and periodicals we receive, I constantly find myself reading WIDESCREEN REVIEW over all the others combined. The articles are well-written, thought-out, and accurate. I also find the Editors Couch and the equipment reviews very useful and informative. Thanks for producing a quality magazine without all the BS you find in most other publications.
