3.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, bad DVD., September 23, 2002
This review is from: Blackbeard's Ghost (DVD)
Much thanks to Disney for releasing this classic family favorite, but the DVD is so lacking. First, my biggest gripe is that the movie is in full screen. So much is cut off in some scenes that it cannot be missed. For example, in one scene, Dean Jones is sitting in a car talking with one of his co-stars sitting next to him. Only half or even as little as one third of the actors face is visible. Very annoying to watch. Another glitch is the audio. For some reason the audio is terribly low on this DVD. Usually DVD sound is crystal clear and sometimes in surround sound, however, while watching the movie I had to raise the audio on my television to a very high setting just to hear it.
I do appreciate the release of this movie on DVD, but this movie that was such an ejoyable part of many viewers childhoods really deserved much more respect and should have had more attention when being put onto DVD. Hopefully Disney will put forth more effort when releasing their classics in the future.

I agree, love the movie, but I often wonder if Disney still has the negatives to work with in order to fix "Blackbeard's Ghost". The DVD is of the worst quality of any DVD I've ever seen, and it deserves better treatment. 2013, still not fixed! lol!
