    Hi Gary,

    Just wondered if you knew if the recently released region 2 version of Blackbeard's Ghost is an improvement on the dreadful region 1 release. Can't find a review or any information at all on the region 2 release.

    Regards, Peter.

    Region 2 release is the same 'fullscreen' transfer as the R1 disc. Yes, the film is now on Blu-ray - presumably in the correct ratio, finally.

    Has anyone who's seen this on Amazon Instant confirm that it's in the correct aspect ratio?

    While I can't confirm Amazon, I'm pretty sure that Disney Movies Anywhere has distributed the same HD file (1.66:1 aspect ratio) to all of its digital outlets. However now that this is out on Blu-ray I would strongly suggest you not buy a download at this time as all the Movie Club Blu-rays have been digitally cleaned up whereas most of the Disney Movies Anywhere files have not.

    The one on Amazon instant HD is in 1.66:1 and looks very nice. I'm guessing the bluray coming from Disney Movie Club today will be the same. I'll let you know. I got the MOON-SPINNERS on Amazon instant HD and it looks horrible. The GNOMEMOBILE looks very good as well.

    What is horrible about it?

    I'd love that too on Bluray.

    The Brigham Young cable channel was showing many of the Disney live action films in recent years. The print they ran of "Blackbeard's Ghost" had gorgeousbcolor and was in widescreen. Many of the other films they aired differed from their DVD counterparts.

    TCM also showed several Disney titles in widescreen that weren't released on DVD that way ("Herbie Goes Monte Carlo" I remember for sure).

    Hopefully, these were remastered with Bluray releases in mind.

    The Disney Club Blu-ray is superb. 1.66:1, great color and contrast...a winner, as are most of these club releases.
