    Nope - seems more than a little peculiar at this late date.

    OK. Mine came today. Pretty neat. I've never owned any 35mm motion picture film before. I got it with my 2 1/2 year old daughter in mind, so when she's old enough I can show her the movie and then say "look, this is what a movie used to be!"

    Came home from work with a surprise in the mail, the film strips and the letter that came with it, looking forward to the month of November a whole lot more now.

    Thanks

    and if Steve from Thunderbean is reading the thread, I wish you could work something out for Mr. Bug or possibly the other betty boops that Olive is overlooking.

    Got my strips. Both are from night scenes, so I need to hold them up to a strong light. But, unlike probably 90% of you on this forum, I have never even touched 35mm film before, so this is kind of a thrill. I might look into buying a picture frame from somewhere that is lit from behind so that the art is visible on my wall.

    I enjoy this film despite its numerous flaws (the songs are insipid, many of the characters insufferable, Gulliver himself is as boring as a drill bit). The colors and detail brought out by the Thunderbean DVD release amazed me, having seen only crappy PD prints in the past. The Blu-ray of this is going to be a stunner. I would recommend to any of you who have not yet ordered this to do so with great haste.

    Thunderbean is still taking orders on Amazon - $19.00 + $3.99 shipping. Apparently that still includes the film strip.

    I got mine today.
    Special thank you to Steve & Thunderbean for going to the trouble and expense of sending them all the way to OZ.
    They were nicely packed and accompanied by a very courteous letter.
