30 years young and this??,
This review is from: The Fox and the Hound / The Fox and the Hound Two (Three-Disc 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray / DVD Combo in Blu-ray Packaging) (Blu-ray)
I feel short of neutral about the Fox and the Hound movie itself. But that doesn't mean I'm not upset about Disney's HD transfer. It is quite clear that it didn't get the same remastering treatment as the other Disney classics. I guess because it's not as popular, Disney thought that they didn't need to spend as much time into restoring it. Well, that's just silly. If you're a fan of the film, demand that Disney rerelease it as a stand-alone title with a new remaster.

The mastering of this film is awful. You can see a blob/smudge on 75% off the film on the bottom right. Once you see it, its impossible not to see it.

I actually think that BECAUSE Disney didn't care enough to treat this film with the same regard as their bigger animated features, its Blu-ray transfer wound up looking BETTER than the rest. "The Fox and the Hound" on Blu-ray actually looks like FILM, which is of course the medium these movies were shot on. Honestly, this is how all Disney Blu-rays ought to look as it's way more pleasing. Thank goodness Studio Ghibli get to decide how their films look on Blu-ray, because otherwise they'd suffer the same grain smearing that Disney's big-time hits do.
