The formats get better and Disney's efforts get worse. If they didn't know they needed home video, I'm sure they'd bail on physical media altogether.Charles Smith said:Same here, too. Snow White is an essential, but it would take an earthshaking MAJOR development for me to purchase another release. I still enjoy gazing at the deluxe laserdisc box..and that first Platinum DVD set has sentimental value, so it stays. Those and the 2009 Blu-ray are it, man. No more.
Thanks for the information, Ken. I'll go back in and revise the review.Ken_McAlinden said:Thanks, Matt! Just FYI, the 2009 release included the mono soundtrack as well. It was selectable from the audio options menu as "Restored Original Soundtrack".
Yeah, right.warnerbro said:I guess Disney thinks they'll entice us to repurchase this set with the addition of:
Snow White in Seventy Seconds (1:12, HD): a young rapper relates the story of the film.
You mean the audio commentary from the first Blu-ray or from some earlier release on laser or DVD? As far as I know, the Blu-ray commentaries are the same. I will admit, however, I didn't play the commentary from the 2009 Blu-ray when I was doing the A/B comparison for the video quality. I just assumed it was the same. There was no mention in the press materials that it was new to this release.Josh Steinberg said:My question is how different is this new Walt Disney-John Canemaker audio commentary compared to the Walt Disney-Roy Disney track from the other release. I love vintage Walt and that's the only potential selling point for me here.
Ken_McAlinden said:I have the same conundrum with this I had with the Sleeping Beauty Blu-ray. Nothing about it surpasses the previous release in way I value other than the fact that it is available digitally as well as on disc. If I buy the digital copy by itself, I feel like I am now a data point saying that digital copies are preferable to physical releases.
Pinocchio is my favorite, too.Randy Korstick said:Never got the original either as I didn't have blu ray at that time (the only home video format I was late to adopt, early adopter with all other formats). Really looking forward to this and hope my favorite Pinocchio will be next for a reissue.
