Since the conception of home theater, there are fewer people going to the big screen, unless they want to gorge on bigger than life images, incredible visuals, and richly layered sound effects, feasts often reserved for sci-fi, super-heros, dynamic action or animated movies. Most of the time, we simply wait for the movie to come out in DVD so we can watch it from home, when we want, as many times as we want, pause it, reload a scene, along with other amenities we don’t have at the box office. Sometimes, however, the graphics, sound effects and other technical enhancements are lost in translation when transferred to a DVD format. Dewanda Banks has worked with Doug Pratt in producing the most comprehensive guide to the DVD medium. Doug has listed more than 12,000 DVD’s on the market, with a critical appraisal of how well these films had been transferred to DVD technology. Beginning with the “Laser Disc Newsletter” in 1984, he changed the title of his review newsletter to the “DVD Laser Disc Newsletter” once DVD’s became available to the public.
