The sense of clarity is usually quite strong, though, with visible fine detail almost always visible in the actors' faces, hair, and clothing.
(The soft shots that are here seem to be the result of less-than-precise focus-pulling.) Aside from some blown-out highlights here and there, there are no major color problems; adjusting for the variances in color grading between each vignette, contrast is stable, saturation is good, and skin tones balanced.
Little Shop of Horrors is a 1986 American rock musical comedy horror film directed by Frank Oz.
It is a film adaptation of the off-Broadway musical comedy of the same name by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman about a geeky florist shop worker who finds out his Venus flytrap can speak.
(Cue the inevitable laxatives-and-burritos joke.) Or the bit with Kick Ass' Chlo Grace Moretz as a junior high girl who gets her first period on her first date, bleeding all over the couch and walls at her horrified boyfriend's house.
Or the cringe-worthy scene with Halle Berry and Stephen Merchant playing a game of Truth-or-Dare that escalates from her blowing out a blind kid's birthday candles to him getting a penis tattoo on his cheek and reconstructive surgery to make him look like a derogatory Asian caricature. A storybook fairy who trades fellatio for gold coins?

He unintentionally rubs his neck-nuts against Winslet's cheek while they pose uncomfortably for a picture.

Take the sketch with Parks and Rec's Chris Pratt, who goes to propose to his girlfriend (Anna Faris) only to find out that her greatest sexual desire is to be pooped on.
Lonely bachelors Dog (Chico Benymon) and Beaver (Leonard Armond Robinson) realize they've been playing the game all wrong after their best pal Too Cool (Wesley Jonathan) invites them to partake in a round of speed dating in this comedy co-starring Chris Elliot and Clint Howard.

(There are one or two shorter shorts that look to have been shot on what was probably less expensive gear.) The film's 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation seems true to sourceno blatant DNR or edge enhancement, no obvious compression issuesbut Movie 43 isn't exactly a stunner, mostly because of the cheap-looking "comedy movie" lighting, which tends to be flat and often overly bright.
The blame should fall on the producer/director team of Charles B.
