Thank you! I saw the same thing and my friend says I'm crazy. There is a big difference in both saturation and depth of color - so much I got rid of my 3D BD.

Never read it or saw it.

But I did find this scene a bit sensual in a way. You've got a beautiful woman (Glinda) chained up with Evanora basically saying "I've been looking forward to torturing you for a long time because I hate that pretty face."

I wouldn't have gone that far! The disc is excellent just desaturated as are many 3-d bluray's. A good rough fix is bump up your color saturation roughly 60%. On my Panasonic VT60 I pushed my color up to 83-87 from it's normal setting of 53 and compared it to the 2-d version on hdmi 2 and matched as best I could.

Numerous other blurays are desaturated as well, 300: rise of an empire, G.I. Joe retaliation, etc. Ideally the transfers or 2-d and 3-d should be identical aside from the MVC encoding. There shouldn't be a shift in color saturation, black levels etc.

Just saw Oz: The Great and Powerful on Blu. Truly gorgeous print; the colors were amazing, and even though the special effects/backgrounds were obvious in many cases - it all seemed intentional & appropriate for the film. The colors were especially impressive during the landscape scenes - very lush & vibrant.

Also liked the homage to the original film, by having the beginning sequence in Kansas b&w (and only taking up a portion of the screen) which later converted to color & widescreen for the later Oz sequences.

As a fan of the original L. Frank Baum Oz series of novels ever since I was a kid, I liked how this movie incorporated elements from the original books, while still being an original story - i.e., the origin of how the charlatan/scammer Oz came to the land of Oz (LOL), the village of living china/porcelain little figurines (there was an extensive scene involving the china village in the original WOZ novel), the flying monkeys, the wicked witches, etc.

I've always liked the Oz spin-off films (this film, Tin Man (inspired by the original), Return to Oz) much better than the original WOZ film. Sure, that's a classic - but was lacking in many respects. Not only are the effects outdated these days, but I never liked the fact that the whole Oz sequence was a dream that Dorothy had (as revealed at the end). Conversely, in the original novel the whole Oz sequence was not a dream, but was something that actually happened. I always thought the dream "explanation" in the film was a cop-out.

Popped this in for the first time since I bought it, and was confused as hell by the little "English 2.0" warning. Since I only have a television with two speakers, I listened to it for about a half hour on that track before switching it over to the DTS 7.1 track.

If Disney insists that DTS doesn't work on my normal TV, how come the 7.1 track sounds slightly better? I watched my Simba's Pride DVD the other day with the DTS track too, and it yelled at me for the same thing.

Your player is more than likely converting it to PCM.


Most TVs do not support DTS bitstream.

More interesting are quality differences between the regular edition and the 3D one. The 3D is set to a different color range that pails to comparison. I hated it so much I ditched it.
