Not ready for big screen TV,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lake Placid (Widescreen Edition) (DVD)I love this movie, with it's off-beat humor and excellent special effects. This DVD version, however, is not the best. I had orignally gotten a copy using cereal box tops, but the picture was not enhanced for big screen TVs, and appeared as a small picture with black bands around all sides. I could zoom in to get it to fill most of the screen, but that reduced the resolution. Worse, however, was the sound. The background music and the special effects noises were extremely loud, while the witty dialogue was almost inaudible. Because the copy I had was obviously an old and inexpensive version, I bought a new copy, hoping it would be better, but no such luck. The new copy has the same problems as the old. I'm hoping that a blu-ray digitally enhanced version will be released that presents the movie the way it was in the theatres.

Yes, I don't understand why this has not been released in an improved anamorphic transfer. Our family loves this movie and puts it right up there with the first Tremors movie.
