Beauty And The Beast (Diamond Edition) (3D/2D) (1991) Okay, if you thought “The Lion King” in 3D was marvelous, then you haven’t seen anything yet.  Day and date with “The Lion King” in 3D, also comes “Beauty And The Beast” in 3D.  You haven’t experienced “Beauty And The Beast” if you haven’t watched this 3D disc.  It is truly spectacular. I’m lover of Disney animation, so to experience on the 3D plane is quite a sight.  The film is a masterpiece in its own right.  The music from Alan Menken and Howard Ashman is legendary, rivaling that of “The Little Mermaid” and “The Lion King.”  However, books have been written on the film itself, so I will concentrate on the 3D experience.  For a review of the film released previously on Blu-ray visit by clicking here. This Blu-ray package is essentially a re-release of the previous Diamond Edition of “Beauty ...

Lion King, The (Diamond Edition) (3D/2D) (1994) “The Lion King” is the pinnacle of Disney animation in the 1990s.  The 90s began with “Beauty And The Beast” and “Aladdin.”  The later 90s proved decent with works such as “Pocahontas,” “Mulan” and “Hercules,” the latter being one of my favorites.  But, it was “The Lion King” that really stuck with audiences. The music from Tim Rice, Elton John and Hans Zimmer is legendary.  It won Academy Awards.  Even after all these years, even with new generations, you will be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t know the tune to “Hakuna Matata” or “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King.” The film has all the necessities of a great family Disney animation.  The story is unique and the images are unsurpassed.  The film really transports you to the African pridelands, well maybe not as much as “African Cats” does.  Nevertheless, ...

Dumbo (70th Anniversary Edition) (1941) Here we are.  Alas, Disney has brought “Dumbo” to Blu-ray in the US.  The film has been on Blu-ray for more than a year in foreign countries, and some of you may have imported that version.  But for those that were patient, this US release is worth the wait. With “The Lion King” currently in theaters and set for a Blu-ray 3D release in the coming weeks, Disney gives us another of their classics first.  “Dumbo” is the four animated feature from Disney, released in 1941, just one year after the, at that time, puzzling nature of “Fantasia.”  This is also Disney’s first animal-based animated film. Sure, the film only runs about 60 minutes, but its accomplishments are great.  Sure, there is controversy surrounding the racial nature of some of the characters.  But, that can be found in any film if you ...

Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas (3D/2D) (1993) “Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas” is not one of my particular favs.  I know there are tons of Burton fans and fans of this film out there.  It just doesn’t suit me.  I applaud the stop-motion animation and the creativity, but it just doesn’t strike a good chord with me.  I find it creepy and a bit unsettling.  I’m sure this is of the filmmakers’ intentions, but it goes as far for me as to make this film non-enjoyable. This film has gone through several releases so I’m sure that you all know about the premise of the film.  For more information on the foundation of this film visit the previous Blu-ray review here. This review is of the Blu-ray 3D release of the film.  All manners of this release are identical to the 2008 2-Disc Blu-ray release of the film which ...

Fox Hound And The Hound, The / The Fox And The Hound II (1981/2006) Probably Disney’s least beloved classic, “The Fox And The Hound” makes its Blu-ray debut.  The film went through numerous development challenges beginning in 1977.  Animators came and went, studio politics stood in the way, and so much more.  When the film finally made its debut in 1981, it just didn’t have the panache that early Disney films had. The tale of “The Fox And The Hound” wants to be the story of “Bambi,” but tries to be different.  In fact, were the script development to be perfected, the film most likely would have been another “Bambi.”  Alas, the plot here is simple and straightforward, but lacks the Disney emotion.  The story and character development picks up a bit in the latter part of the film, but never reaches its heart-wrenching potential.  As with early Disney animations, “The Fox And The Hound” ...
