Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

It’s a wait and see! Wouldn’t be the first time things that were edited in the US were uncut internationally, though one would have thought they’d want to keep all the offerings standard across the board in this new streaming age. We’ll know in due course, but my guess is that the initial rumour was...

Re: The Lion King Remake

In English, why do Timon and Pumbaa basically sound alike? They didn’t even get two distinctive enough voices for their two comedy sidekicks!

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

Yes, all HB stuff is on film, well into the 80s.

As for video or standard def on Blu-ray, it is, alas, about as good as it’s ever going to get.

Re: The Lion King Remake

Really noticing again how badly directed this is, and the editing is just plain WEIRD! I mean, they had a perfectly made template to follow, and while I get that they wanted to change things and make it their own thing, everything is for the worse! How many shots of watching Timon and Pumbaa's butts...

Re: John Carter of Mars

As we all know (stating the obvious here), there are plenty of massively earning film releases that are bombs in another meaning of the word. Even Cutthroat Island, as cheesy and often misguided as it was, is more entertaining than most huge hits. I mean, look how bad Lion King looks compared to wha...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Still nothing to really grab me, though, even though I’ll get this day one when it belatedly launches in the UK. It’s all still froth and stuff I have, have seen, or have no interest in seeing again or for the first time. Don’t get me wrong: it’s all great and still about what one would expect. And ...

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

On DVD, especially the early titles, Warner Archives used whatever video masters that were available to them (and, admittedly, were more than up front about this), but on Blu-ray their discs have been better than those from other studios, including "older sibling" Warner Home Video (the two are dist...

Re: The Lion King Remake

So they’re not only making a shot for shot of the movie but they’re now also ripping off the original film's bonus features (this same idea was on the original’s LaserDisc box set)! Golly, for all the talk of photorealism and "real" animals, a lot of that looks really cartoony and weird: the Greek p...

Re: Disney's Aladdin (Live-Action)

Actually quite nice! The LD did do a "made you look" type thing, though, back in the day if I remember right, on the inside of the sleeve. :)

Re: The Princess and the Frog

I know it means things like that can be shared, but it still amuses me that people end up missing the enjoyment of a real, live, right in front of you moment because they are so busy watching it through their phones, pads and tablets.
