If I could change one thing about it, I would make those big eyes a scosh smaller.

 

I was in a sheet music store one day a few weeks ago, and I overheard two women talking about this film. One of them said she disliked modern Disney films because the characters' eyes were too big. But this isn't new. Has she watched Bambi lately? Or The Little Mermaid?


Enough is enough, Disney. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray.

Yes, it's not new, but it seemed like Frozen was just a little more. How about Beauty and the Beast? I don't recall the eyes being so big there.

But I still love the film.

I just received my copy today. The 3d disc was a floater, so I am hoping for the best.

I agree with you, Johnny. Thank you for pointing that out.

I just got my copy from the U.K. this afternoon. I watched the first 5 minutes of the film just
to see what everyone was talking about, then I went and watched the short, "Get A Horse."

The short is a lot of fun. Very clever. There are a lot of "pop-out" moments.

The beginning of the film, with the saw going through the ice has another "pop-out" moment.

...but none of that pop-out is major.

I don't want to bring down the enthusiasm of everyone. I wonder how many people have seen
what real pop-out should look like.

Forgive me for bringing this up over and over again, but everyone needs to see Chapter 3 of
IMAX: UNDER THE SEA. If not that, A TURTLE'S TALE (Region 2).

That is what major pop-out is all about. Major pop-out is when objects seemingly come so far
out of the screen that it hovers inches from your nose. Outside of the two titles I mentioned above,
nobody has done 3D pop-out, as well pronounced, in any major film that I am aware of.

Second best selections (not nearly as good) are A TURTLE'S TALE 2 (U.S.A.) or the ending
sequence to DESPICABLE ME or DESPICABLE ME 2.
(Available in the USA).

Even those titles have more prominent pop-out than anything I have seen thus far on the
Frozen 3D disc.

...not to say that the 3D doesn't seem to be exceptional. I was pretty taken back by the amount
of depth in Frozen. It looks spectacular. I hope to watch the whole thing tomorrow.

I just would like to give everyone an idea of how GREAT 3D pop-out should strive to be -- and
the only way to really know what it is all about, is to check out the titles I mentioned above.

I just get a little down when people call this major pop-out. Trust me, it's moderate.

...and my apologies for getting a little riled up about this. All of you know how much of a
3D advocate I have become and how disappointed I am with the direction Hollywood has
gone in making this format as entertaining as it could be.

That Mickey Mouse short had potential. The animators played it safe, in my opinion.

Tip:

Just for the level of pop-out, buying Under The Sea from Amazon might be the best
$23 you spend this month. Guaranteed you will be showing it off to your friends.

At Best Buy, there are a few 3D double feature bundles, one of which is IMAX Under The Sea/ IMAX Deep Sea for only $24.50.

Also picked up To The Arctic / Born To Be Wild 3D combo for the same price. Great deal.
It's gonna be a hell of a ride. I'm ready. .

That scratch-resistant coating they use on Blu-rays is amazing. All the Blu-ray floaters I've received are pristine, whereas the DVD floaters are scuffed up terribly.

I had the opposite problem; mine was a little snug in the case.

I'm giving serious thought to renting Frozen 3D on VOD before I get my parents to pick up the title in the UK.

I just got back from Best Buy and learned that Planes, the textbook definition of mediocrity, is available in a 2D/3D combo on Blu-ray. In the United States. Right now. But this billion dollar-grossing, Oscar-winning film isn't?

Just a little more salt on our "Frozen 3D" wound. Here is a pic of the asian edition. Why is Disney marketing punishing the US? If they are worried about black market copies, why release in asia?

I guess we 3D lovers are just "super" special and they wanted something really special to drive up the price of the 3D version beyond what the rest of the world paid. They are to good to us.......really....

Yes, close caption. Usually they have two versions for each title, one with CC. Yesterday they only had the CC version for Frozen.
