    Reviewer: Sean Kelly

    One of my favorite Shakespear productions, this disc has some really nice video quality with low compression level and little in the way of artifacting which produces visually appealing scenery. There is some, but very light film dirt/scratches noticable only on very bright, extended scenes like those with skyline visible. I noticed what I think appears to be chroma noise in some scenes and there is a degree of aliasing as well in both the P&S and LBX sides of the disc. And although it isn't of terrible consequence, the theatrical trailer is subject to horriffic artifacting, especially noticable when the film name is displayed. The jump to scene index is sort of weak and at the same time unique. In the form of a book, the index has pages with a still image on the left and 4-5 index selections on the right and the option to skip between the pages. Beyond that, there are no lovely special features to speak of and in that light I would really only recommend this disc to those who, like myself, enjoy Shakespearean chivalry, valliance and a classic tale performed like never before!
