    I have just bought one of my fav Disney DVD' Bednobs & Broomsticks. And being a 20 odd year old movie i was willing to accept faults
    well
    All i can say about the picture is
    GREAT. For such a movie it fab in fact it's to good.
    With the extra clarity i could see all the wire holding up all the props.
    My problem comes in the sound.
    At many point throughout the film there seems to be Very bad dubbing of voices. The voice actors sound nowhere near the originals and infact sound american (no good for a couple of cockney's)
    This in my eyes (ears) in unacceptable i have about 2 copy on tape and have seen the film resently on tv with no such dubbing.
    Hudereds of people like me own a copy of this movie without such criminal actions. how hard would it have been for one of the biggest companies in the world to find 1.
    Thank you

    Are you referring to them putting disc out for limited periods as a marketing ploy so you think I must get one before they go???????

    nah, i just don't agree with the cynical way they advertise directly to children. And advertising to children in general. Also to my cynical mind it seems like they haven't put any effort in since lion king. Just churning drivel out on a conveyor belt. just my honest opinion :)

    I saw Looking For Nemo last night on 2003 and it was astonishing, I have never bought a Disney DVD but I just may get this one when it comes out.

    Finding Nemo. :0)

    Already seen it. Pretty good, but IMO not as good as Toy Story I/II or Monsters Inc.

    I feel the same way about Disney.

    <rant on>

    Just daft things like sequels nowadays, we went to the cinema to watch Jungle Book 2 and IMO it was a complete waste of production. Granted the kids didnt know any different but it found it quite annoying the songs I felt were nearly identical to the originals there seemed to be no effort put into it at all , "lets just bang out a sequel".

    Then you walk into a Disney store and its just laughable at what crap they manufacture. 10 different types of [insert disney character here] dolls, Snow White Hula Hula dress (i mean what the fudge has snow white got to do with hawaii!?), stuff like that.

    Then there is just the way they elaborate their storylines nowadays. They cant seem to make a feature length movie without eather death or broken homes coming into the ecuation.

    Peter Pan 2 : kids get evacuated, seperated from their mother etc
    Lilo & Stitch: parents die in horrific car crash, child gets seperated from the only family shes got if she cant look after her properly ...

    Needless to add that my 5 year old daughter cried through both of these cartoons and we had to leave the cinema cos she didnt want to watch what happened :D

    </end rant>

    Sorry for going on a bit but I really wanted the subject to come up so I could get that off my chest :D

    I´d love to see what Walt would be thinking about all this :)

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Incredible Journey 1963, pets get separated from family. But that was based on a true story wasn’t it?

    Interesting, John Lasseter was interviewed recently, and he said that the Pixar Studios were concerned that people were starting to get the Pixar formula. Buddy movie, a little sadness at seperation. big chase at the end, Randy Newman song, "out takes" during the titles.

    They were changing this for Finding Nemo (really loking forward to this one!) and would move further away for the film after that.

    Will it be a case of not becoming stale, or spoiling a winning formula.

    Saw Monsters Inc last night for the first time. Was dissapointed.

    Loved the short about the birds though.

    For me I was dissapointed in Nemo, yet enjoyed Monsters (although not as much as Toy Story). I found that Nemo was too Disney for my liking and not Pixar enough.

    Would imagine that kids would maybe enjoy it more though.

    As for Disney and their marketing ploys, is damn annoying when you want to get a film and miss out on their release schedule. I have been looking for Aladdin for ages with no luck.

    My understanding was it did come out and then got withdrawn for their 5 year peiod (or whatever it is).

    I have it in the back of my mind that I read that it was the title they were releasing next year as their premium title. Could be wrong though.


    Anyone??

    Yeah, but this is not a new thing. Original Jungle book (orphan, alone in jungle). Tarzan (orphan, alone in jungle) etc etc and these stories were not written by Disney.

    Most of these great kids movies are about overcoming tradegy of some sort.

    Disney have obviously captialised on the fomula that works (if it aint broke, dont fix it), nothing wrong with that in my book, their movies have given me and my kids a lot of enjoyment.

    There was an article in the "Sunday Times" last week about "Finding Nemo". They said basically it looks pretty, but its forumlaic and not that great.

    Seems like they have fallen into the same stale trap as their big brother disney.

    I don't expect to enjoy Disney films, as I'm hardly their target audience. However, there's a couple of major complaints that are regularly levelled at them:

    - Bad guys tend to have darker skin than good guys. This may be unintentional, but it's a pretty bad subliminal message to have attached to your films.

    - They massacre the plots of classic stories! If you're going to make an animated film about a classic story, fine. However, if you're going to butcher it, then why not start out with your own story in the first place? I guess the reason is 'marketing': it's easy to market a film that's based on a story that everyone has heard of, whether they've read it or not.
