BMM is a major improvement from the poorly constructed "Day of the Diesels" and the awful "Misty Island Rescue". The dialogue is no longer forced and there is not exaggeration on words. The film also has some hidden easter eggs on the biggest of Thomas fans will notice. Such are: The Marklin Engine (in scrap form) at the Dieselworks, The "Rolling Eyes" effect, etc. It's also the first time the Narrow Gauge engines are seen in FULL CGI!
The discs, on the other hand, are a mystery themselves. This is the first Thomas disc to be released in its native 23.976 frame rate. This allows for better quality overall throughout the film. But the main problem is the audio and the length.
The film runs (on the disc) for 1:03:58. It's supposed to be 1:01:27. Somewhere along the line, the film was slowed down and can be noticed in certain audio sequences.
The 5.1 DTS Mix is another problem. There is a lot of phasing and "channel-switching". This can be heard during the WORKING TOGETHER song in the beginning of the film. Listen carefully to the sound effects as well. It's painful to listen to a mix THIS bad.
Overall, with all technical aspects aside, BMM is a must own for any Thomas fan. The kids, and even the adults, will enjoy this sweet tale of the little green engine.
Where I take issue is with the DVD. I despise DVDs that force commercials on you. This DVD starts out playing one with all the Blue Mountain Mystery toys, a preview (of a totally unrelated and more mature animated movie), and a vacation getaway. I hate that I can't just skip it, I have to fast forward while my son is telling me, "Wait! Wait!" because he wasn't to see the commercials. My boys never watch regular TV so they never see commercials, I don't appreciate that this is forced on us, and I have to be ready to quickly fast forward to get to the main menu to start the actual movie. Horrible design.
Otherwise, movie is great!
my grandson got several dvd's for Christmas and this is one of many that is his favorite. he has several of Thomas & friends and I wish that I had them when I was growing up. this is one of a chosen few that we let him watch. it has good learning tools. we sit and watch them together all the time.
As the parent of a 3 year old, this is a lovely change from the endless requests for Misty Island Rescue and whatnot.
