5.0 out of 5 stars Uncensored December 18, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Just a note to fans of this film that are on the fence about this new edition.

According to Bill Hunt at The Digital Bits:

Quote

The new Blu-ray will offer the film completely uncensored, but it will also include the edited "family friendly" audio track for those who prefer it. Both the censored and uncensored audio tracks will be DTS-MA 5.1. That comes directly from studio sources (and thank you to those sources!), so fans can rest easy.

/Quote

Hope this helps.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is wonderful movie, but an awful release of it March 18, 2004
By M. Ross
Format:DVD
Let me start by saying that The Last Unicorn is my favorite movie of all time. I have loved it since I was very, very young. However, I truly wish I had never bought this DVD.
First off, the movie is full screen and not widescreen--this could easily be forgiven if the DVD didn't have numerous other problems. The picture quality is awful and looks as though they ripped the movie from the old VHS master. There are also some scenes where the contrast seems to be up too high. I know that these are not simply issues with the original movie because I have the German release and its picture is flawless (not to mention widescreen) and beautiful. This release also has one of the worst menus I have ever seen. The DVD says it has special features, but I can't find them!
If you're a hardcore Last Unicorn fan, don't buy this DVD. Your old VHS version is just as good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie, poor DVD release August 3, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although anime is beginning to change people's minds, far too many Westerners still think of animation as a genre only fit for children. The Last Unicorn ought to be high on the viewing list of anyone who believes animation is just for kids--yes, it's a "cartoon," but it's also beautifully animated, with unique and unforgettable characters, and the storyline is as true to the original source material (book by Peter S. Beagle) as any movie adaptation I've ever seen.

In her unchanging, always-spring forest lives a unicorn (voice of Mia Farrow), ageless, wise and innocent, and without regret--unicorns can feel sorrow, but it's not the same thing. One day, when men come into her forest to hunt, she discovers that she is the last of the unicorns. With snatches of help and hints from a dizzy butterfly, she sets out to find the others. On her way she picks up an incompetent magician named Schmendrick (voice of Alan Arkin), a withered woman named Molly Grue (voice of Tammy Grimes), and eventually finds the kingdom of King Haggard (voice of Christopher Lee) and his son Lir (voice of Jeff Bridges). But in the changing, aging world of humans, can the unicorn even keep track of who she is and how the story should end?

The movie version isn't perfect. There are some awkward scenes, including a terrible duet by Mia Farrow and Jeff Bridges which never should have been included, and some scenes contain material such as mild profanity, bare breasts and depictions of death which might not be suitable for children. But there is an earnestness to this film, a magic in the way ideas are expressed, that's all too rare in modern filmmaking. This quality helps many viewers overlook the film's flaws.

So if The Last Unicorn is that good of a movie, why does it only rate two stars?

5.0 out of 5 stars What lingers behind November 3, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This was one of the first movies I can remember watching, and it still haunts me. The book is one I return to year after year, and the movie does what is seldom done in adaptations and remains faithful to the text it was based on.
The animation itself is wonderful, whimsical, and the characters linger in the mind long after the more mainstream looking characters of other movies blur in the mind. Almost twenty years later, the Red Bull still scares me. Schmedrick the magician is a loveable character, a failure as a magician who still keeps trying, and strikes a familiar chord in us all. I think any woman can relate to Molly Grue, still waiting for her unicorn. Even King Haggard is a sympathetic character if only in his selfishness.
This is a definite must have to anyone who loves fantasy and unicorns. Though it might be a little too much for young children (it scared the pants off me the first time I watched it) it is something every child will appreciate. Heck, its something grownups will appreciate too, since I still love to read the book and watch the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blu-Ray should be the best version yet December 20, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
For those of you not in the know The Last Unicorn is a really nice fantasy movie based on the popular book by Peter Beagle. As the name implies it's about unicorn who found out she is the last of her kind and sets out to uncover the truth behind that. She soon finds out all of the other unicorns have been captured by a mythical creature, and with the help of an inept magician and a surly maiden they seek out to bring the unicorns back from captivity.

The story is among the best in fairy tale fiction. You have a fair number of mystical creatures and learn interesting tidbits about them throughout the film. You also have a romantic aspect between a prince and maiden (which is required for many who love fairy tales), sword slinging action, wondrous magic, singing (we'll get to that later), and comedy all done up by the voice talents of A-list actors like Allen Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine, Edward Scissorhands), Mia Farrow (Rosemary's Baby, Hannah and her Sisters), Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars prequels), Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski, Tron movies), Angela Landsbury (Beauty and the Beast, Murder She Wrote), and a slew of other notable talents.

The action scenes are exciting and directing does well with the movement and colors in these scenes. The scenes that involve the romance feel real with characters hitting home the type of emotions a young love can feel. The fun scenes are really fun, but it's more dialog kind of funny. Lots of good one liners come from the script. Not so much in the realm of visual comedy unless you count the scene with the laughing skeleton and maybe one scene with a talking cat. The villain (done by Lee) is pitch perfect in execution as both a bad man and a flawed human being.
