Orphaned in deepest Africa with the Zambouli tribe,
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD picture has a dated quality, but colors remain fairly rich and well balanced. Images can be generally sharp, but fine definition and clarity are wanting. The picture can be very soft at times. Contrast and shadow delineation should be satisfactory, though details are lost in the darker scenes. There is some pixelization and occasionally obtrusive edge enhancement. The source element is revealing of minor film grain and occasional artifacts, but overall the picture should be generally pleasing. (Suzanne Hodges)The DVD also includes a modified 1.33:1 version (not reviewed).
Reason #131 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read it because I need it! For an avid audio/video enthusiast such as myself, Widescreen Review literally blows away the competition in terms of technical expertise and professional journalism when covering the world of cinema. Whether it is for the home or the local movie theatre, the magazine's articles are the most complete from my experience. This is particularly evident with topics that are covered over multiple issues. Instead of what could be a brief overview, there appears to be a journalistic determination to “do it right or don't do it at all” attitude from the very beginning. There are three key factors that I believe contribute to this achievement. One is the amount of research you do, and you do it with a resolve to touch as many bases as possible. Two is the amount of preparation that goes into each article or review, which most readers only get to read the tip of the iceberg as a finely polished product. Finally, your passion for the field you cover is as great or greater than that of your readers.
