1.0 out of 5 stars Four Star movie -- one star DVD, August 18, 2004
A disappointing release from Disney Home Video of a charming film with great stars and wonderful Sherman Brothers' music. The extras are nice: a short "making of" documentary and optional audio commentary. Why the one star? A poor pan-and-scan release with below par video quality are truly unacceptable in today's DVD market. It would be better for the Disney Company to slow down its release sechedule and take the time to create quality releases of these older title that appeal to "grown up" Disney fans and film students.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Disney favorite -- Hopefully released in widescreen!, March 14, 2000
A favorite Disney film -- excellent adventure, strong characters, beautiful art work and a great background score. It's listed as widescreen -- let's hope Disney releases it that way!

1.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film -- terrible DVD!, March 14, 2000
One of my favorite childhood films is ruined in this full screen DVD edition. Please release this fillm in its widescreen version as well! Why not offer both versions so that consumers have a choice?

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Disney favorite -- horrible DVD release!, March 14, 2000
A favorite Disney film ruined by a full-screen DVD release. This film should have been released in its original theatrical ratio of 1.75:1. Why has Disney changed its policy about widescreen? Some people prefer full screen while others prfer widescreen. No problem. Give consumers the option, like on the excellent Mulan DVD which has both versions. Once again, Disney seems to have forgotten that its animated classics are works of art and should not be altered. Please remedy this situation with future Disney Gold Classic titles.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great movie -- terrible DVD!, March 14, 2000
This is one of our favorite Disney films. Why the low rating? The film ratios have been changed; in other words, the DVD is full screen instead of the original theatircal ratio of 1.75:1. Come on Disney, offer DVD's in their original format or give consumers both versions like the MULAN DVD. Animated films from other studios (Iron Giant, Prince of Egypt) are available in both formats. Don't Disney fans deserve the best as well?

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Widescreen DVD!, March 10, 2000
This review is from: Hercules (Limited Edition) (DVD)
A fun Disney film made all the better because of its widescreen release on DVD! Disney Home Video: Please release all animated features in widescreen, especially FOX AND THE HOUND, THE ARISTOCATS, THE BLACK CAULDRON, and all future Disney Gold Collection DVD's. Or give Disney fans the option to see either version, like the excellent MULAN DVD release.
