Verified Purchase(What's 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)
Would be 5 stars based on the original movie alone. However, I had to deduct something for what is in this set.
When you see 3 disc you assume it will be:
A Blu-ray of the original
A Blu-ray of the sequel
A DVD with both on one
Well it's the other way around!
A Blu-ray with both on one
A DVD for the original
A DVD for the sequel
I don't notice that the picture quality suffers any, but it's not what I expected with a Disney release. I have always been very impressed with their Blu-ray releases. I really appreciate that they give you the DVD with just about all of them, but I am buying the Blu-ray not the DVD. The DVD is just a bonus. Disney doesn't seem to treat this classic as well as others, and it's a shame. It should be one of their most cherished. I know it is for me.
-An unrelated humorous observation-
I am confused as to why Disney has DVD/Blu-ray versions that come in a DVD case. Who is that for? Are there people so ashamed they have a Blu-ray player that they disguise their Blu-rays as DVDs? Maybe to match with the DVDs they already have? Isn't it their goal to get us to upgrade those too? They are the only movie company I've seen that does this. Isn't it odd?
My daughter got Cars 2 DVD/Blu-ray for her birthday. She couldn't wait to see it so it got opened. Sure, it looks good next to her Cars DVD, but I intend to upgrade it to Blu-ray eventually, and I always get her the Blu-ray package. So, Cars 2 will be her only Pixar/Disney movie she has in a DVD case? Great... Thanks Disney, for giving her technology illiterate grandma opportunity to make a mistake. Well at least she got the Blu-ray part right, eh? :-P
