    Just watched a blu ray of SB a few weeks ago. Didn't remember a thing about it from seeing it...no telling how long ago. The forest, with all the rectangle trees, reminded me of Minecraft a little bit. Really liked that effect. Perhaps if they do Minecraft 2...

    When I was a little kid, this movie seemed LONG to me. As an adult, I’m always shocked at how quickly it goes by.

    Yes, a real treat seeing it in widescreen in a public theater.

    Absolutely! This is my absolute favorite Disney film and one I would love to see on the big screen at some point (Steve, is that series still showing the film and if so, do you know if any theaters in New Jersey do the series?). There’s just so much to love about the movie, the stunning artwork, the characters, the brilliant adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s ballet score (which should have won an Oscar), plus the fight between Prince Phillip and Maleficent as a dragon, which I especially loved acting out as a kid.

    Here is the link to the series. I think the closest theaters to NJ are in New York and Pennsylvania:
