Overview

John Singleton's sophomore effort Poetic Justice comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. English, French, and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. There are no subtitles, but the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by Singleton, filmographies and bios for the cast, and theatrical trailers. This is a great disc from Columbia/TriStar, especially when one considers the inexpensive list price.
