"Cheech & Chong Still Smokin" is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen. The transfer is on the soft side, and is a bit grainy, and there are some minor annoyances: blemishes, dirt pieces, noise and edge halos. But even with its flaws, everything still looks pretty decent. Fleshtones hit the spot, while color saturation - which isn't perfect - is full enough to make an impression. Detail is pretty good, too. It's not sharp at all, but the film-like transfer does the job.

 

There's not much to say about the English Mono track, other than it's pretty straightforward. Dialogue is always clear and very easy to hear, and the varying sound effects come through. The music - including George S. Clinton's score - comes out the liveliest. Everything sounds fine, and that's about it. A pretty pleasing mono track - just as it was originally intended.

English subtitles and English closed captions are also available.

 




Just the Theatrical Trailer in anamorphic widescreen.
 
 


"Cheech & Chong Still Smokin" doesn't reach the classic heights of "Up In Smoke," and this DVD isn't too much either. The transfer and mono mix are pretty average, and there's only a trailer. This re-release of the DVD is the same DVD - except it now has a "I Love The 80s" banner, and a 4-track CD with some classic 80s tunes. Most of you can probably live without the soundtrack, but if this was a title you wanted before, it's a small addition that comes with the price reduction.
