Rated 5 out of 5 by KCJayHawk Awesome in Blu!!!
I bought this for my daughter and I have to say that the blu-ray release for this classic Disney movie is fantastic. The picture quality is unbelievable for a movie as old, and the 7.1 surround sound completes the package. If you like this movie and own a blu-ray player it is worth buying. It also comes with the DVD version of the movie for your other players.
Rated 5 out of 5 by renaissanceguy Sleeping Beauty: a REAL BEAUTY!
When SLEEPING BEAUTY was first released in 1958, I had just turn 8 and it is the first movie that had a lasting impression on me. The music was wonderful (later I'll find out that it was adopted from Tchaikovsky's ballet of the same name), the colors were vidid and the story line was exciting and scary enough to mesmerize a young boy (I think the scariest part is when the evil Milificent turns herself into the fire breathing dragon). Many childhood memories came back while watching this splendid hi-def Blu-ray 1080p restoration of the film. I have found that Blu-ray technology is astounding in deftly recreating all of the colors of the spectrum. This spactular color rendition is particularly effective in animated features because of the vibrant hues that dominate this genre. This is the case with SLEEPING BEAUTY, the colors are sumptuous. Blu-ray sound is also magnificent. In this film you can hear the original monophonic track or listen to an enhanced Dolby Digital 7.1 track. I prefer the Dolby 7.1 track. Overall, this is an awesome movie that brought back some fond memories for me. It is a film that I recommend any serious film collector to have.
P.S. Just an observation, in modern animation, the illusion of depth and realism is today an expected norm, in many cases with scenes that have clouds, trees/plants or crowds moving that evoke this sence of depth and realism. In SLEEPING BEAUTY, most of the backgrounds, like most older animation, are stagnant, 2 dimensional stage backdrops. The characters and action, and the viewer interact IN FRONT of the scenery and NOT THROUGH the scenery as is common in most modern animation features. Check it out!
Rated 5 out of 5 by GoJackets Great Value, Outstanding Quality!
The other reviews don't lie. This movie is great on Blu-Ray! The sound is magnificent and the picture quality is exceptional for this classic movie. My wife and I were glued to the TV while watching it with our daughter. The fact that the movie is also in WIDESCREEN 16:9 format was impressive to me. I have other Disney Blu-Ray movies that are upgraded in picture quality and sound but in a 4:3 standard format.
PLEASE NOTE if you are shopping for this movie and want to buy it from the store, they do not have THIS deal in the store. For instance, when I went to buy Sleeping Beauty on Blu-Ray from my local Wal-Mart store, I would have paid $30 for the Blu-Ray. This online exclusive combo-pack is a great deal for just over $20. Get it!
