Does anyone have this DVD? I looked all over town today but to no avail. I was looking forward to seeing this tonight too! How does it look? How does it sound?
Most of the audio is restricted to the center channel, and your sub will really only see a lot of action towards the end.
The sub gets a pretty good workout during the first half hour of the film as well. Overall, it sounds a bit strident. I think it was partly a victim of the recording technology used and perhaps even more a victim of the misguided modern audio remastering idea that "hiss" is the enemy. The video quality on this title is superior to the other two "Vault Disney" titles I have seen: "Pollyanna" and "The Parent Trap". I have barely scratched the surface of the extras, but they seem wonderfully comprehensive.
Grrrr...Wal-Mart didn't have this today. I am still steamin!
Must be because it's widescreen
Hey, just a thought folks. Feel free to call/email Disney at the number below and THANK them for the glorious 16x9 WS transfer of this classic film. They need to hear feedback like this. Consumers call all the time to explicitly complain about black bars but rarely call to express appreciation.
While you're at it...you can put in a plug for getting 20,000 Leagues here this year (rumor is that it's been delayed till next year because disney marketing execs don't think we want their "older" movies!!!) and...as usual...put in a plug for Muppet Treasure Island in 16x9
go to it folks! Telling Disney what they do right will help them do right again in the future!!!!
