Visions Of Ireland (Special Interest/Geography/Travel/Acorn
CSound: C+Extras: CMain Program: B-
rather belated, Acorn Media has issued the fifth of the HD-shot
country-by-country series that has been all over cable/satellite looking good
and is the only way see them in their native format still.Visions
Of Ireland is another solid installment with well-researched writing and
great fly-by shots of another long series of locations that make the countries
in question look at their best.
picture, this is my least favorite as the anamorphically enhanced 1.78 x 1
image is softer than the others and has more detail issues and aliasing issues
than it should.The Dolby Digital 2.0
Stereo mix is better, but simple and nothing extraordinary.The only extra is bonus footage not included
in the main piece, but too good to not include.Now if only Acorn would settle on an HD format and reissue these gems.
