    How do you feel when you learn that one of your favorite films is to be released on DVD?

    Of course, you feel very happy.

    And what is your reaction when you finally got it? Well, there can be two:

    1) This is great! A remastered version presented in widescreen! And all is just like I remember it, only better! And look at all those special features!

    2) What... what is this?!

    My reaction with An American Tail DVD was #2. Because what I got was a #2 job.

    Here is a short and easy-to-follow guide for every studio out there, that is planning to release a movie on DVD:

    1. Do not make unnecessary changes.
    2. Do not make unnecessary edits.
    3. If it was a theatrical feature, present it in widescreen.

    Do you think Universal followed those easy steps?


    Here is an incomplete list of changes (without spoilers):

    -New "humorous" sound effects were added to scenes where originally there weren't any. It's not funny.
    -New voices were added to scenes without dialog (or any noise, for that matter).
    -The alley mice's voices were re-dubbed. Why???
    -The cover art was changes from a beautiful theatrical poster by Drew Struzan, only to be replaced with... something MUCH less appealing.

    As I said, this small list of changes is incomplete. There is more.

    It should be mentioned that there is also no widescreen. Enjoy your fullscreen! And do not forget to also enjoy the complete lack of any real special features to speak of!

    An American Tail is a film that combines the talents of Steven Spielberg and Don Bluth. It was the first animated feature ever to out-compete Disney. It won several awards, including a Grammy for "best song".

    Format: DVD
    Since I have already written a review back in spring of 2001 that touches on the brilliance of this animated treasure, this review will focus primarily on the newly released DVD of the film.

    I for one, was certainly thrilled to learn that Universal was finally giving Fievel the coveted DVD treatment, and anticipated its release on the format each day since. Yes, features are scarce, and yes, the film is presented in full frame only, but the way I see it, having An American Tail on DVD at all is a milestone for me, since it is a title I have yearned for since the early days of the format. Do not get me wrong, I am a VERY strong supporter of original aspect ratio on home video, but An American Tail is not exactly a film that cries out for the anamorphic widescreen treatment. In this case, its omission does not really detract from the experience. But then again, maybe I am being slightly biased about this film, having seen it once as child, loved it, and becoming hooked on it ever since.

    As far as the picture quality is concerned, aside from the image being full frame, I was actually rather impressed. I was not expecting the image to be quite so crisp and clear. There were a few more speckles of film dirt then I thought should have been there, but for a film nearing twenty years old, it was still a good deal better than I was expecting. Clarity was most definitely improved over the VHS versions, and colors were strong and nice-looking.

    The sound is also pretty great. I listened to the DTS 5.1 soundtrack on my surround system, and it is, without a doubt, the best I have ever heard this film. However, those of you who have seen American Tail numerous times over (as I have) are bound to notice changes in some of the dialogue as compared to past video releases.

    Format: Blu-ray
    This is a great movie and it shines like never before on blu-ray. For the first time the film is presented in it's original 1:85:1 theatrical widescreen aspect ratio. The colors are bright and the picture quality is stunning and very clear. The picture quality is vastly improved over every other past release. There are a few flaws however that may not bother too many people. There is 99.9% no film grain but in a few scenes the picture looks like some of the characters have edge doubling. Almost as if they used a three strip technicolor master and miss-aligned the strips a tiny bit which caused a double effect or ghosting around the edges of some of the characters throughout the movie which however does not distract from the enjoyment of the film. This film definitely does not have the quality that Disney gives their re-mastered classics but all-in-all this is a great film and the 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack is superb. This is a great film recommended for children and adults of all ages. This is perfect family entertainment at it's best and for those who like classic and modern classic Don Bluth animation, this one film that is sure to please and a must-have for any blu-ray collection.

    There isn't too much more to say, as other reviewers have it covered: no widescreen, frivolous edits and additions, and a general lack of respect for a milestone in American animation (beat back Disney at the box office). It's pretty clear that the suits at Universal are unconcerned with anything more than a quick, cheap buck or two at the expense of a fine animated feature and its fans. Hold out for a proper DVD treatment, and deluge Universal with demands that they do this up right!
