The Movie:

"Naked Fish" is a virtual aquarium title, offering up five different tanks to view, accompanied by classical music from George Handel, in either DTS or Dolby Digital 5.1. One can also choose water/aquarium sounds in 5.1. The tanks are: classic, predator, living reef, shark and nautilus. Viewers can watch a tank, have the tank repeat over and over, or choose "play all" options. The only thing really missing on this title is more information about the fish themselves. While the DVD offers a weblink to a website that does offer links to fish information and other multimedia regarding the film, it would have been nice if the fish names/info could have been an optional subtitle track, or something along those lines. Still, for those looking for a peaceful program to have on in the background during gatherings or simply to relax, this is certainly a fine option.


The DVD

VIDEO: The picture is presented by Columbia/Tristar in both 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen and 1.33:1 full-frame. Image quality on the anamorphic widescreen presentation was largely quite lovely, although there were some issues at times. Sharpness and detail were excellent, as the picture remained bright and crisp throughout, with the littlest details of the fish visible.

While sharpness and detail were quite good, there were some problems - noticable shimmering was seen during a few moments. Pixelation was not seen, nor was edge enhancement. Colors remained bright and vibrant, with very nice saturation and no smearing.

SOUND: The musical accompaniment is presented in both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1, with two different music tracks. The aquarium sounds are presented in Dolby Digital 5.1. Audio quality is terrific, as the music remained rich and full, with nice reinforcement by the surrounds. The aquarium sounds are also well-recorded and clean.

EXTRAS: Aside from the weblink, there's no supplemental features.

Final Thoughts: "Naked Fish" is an enjoyable visual presentation, even though the DVD is rather bare bones. Audio/video quality is perfectly fine, as well. Those interested in a relaxing program to have on in the background should consider it if it's on sale.
