Ah I get it

Popped in my own Tangled BD today to check it out, and to my surprise most of the clips (especially the non-caps clips) look rather horrible. The pre-war movies look sublime, then the package movies.. (Saludos Amigos, Caballeros and Make Mine Music upgraded into high def without cleaning, the others just soft DVD quality shots), the fifties movies look great, than the sixties movies also look okay (but Sword in the Stone and Jungle Book are rather grainy and unclean in the backgrounds), then the 70s which somehow looks disastrous (Winnie the Pooh is soft, the Rescuers quality is not the same as the BD of that film), than the eighties which is almost just as bad as the 40s, especially Oliver & Co.

Makes you wonder how well the eighties movies would fare on BD either way.. I'm a bit confused, where they made with Xerox as well, or was Fox and the Hound the last film to use this technology?

I wasn't going to buy this because I doubted with how much I would really watch it but thinking it over I might go ahead and bite the bullet and just get it because even if I don't watch the Rescuers that much, I know that I would watch the Rescuers Down Under probably more frequently.

You can go to the Disney Classics Screenshot Comparison thread and see for yourself.

Ten years later ...

(Disney then restored and remastered the movie for its October 4, 2005 release as the sixth installment of the Walt Disney Platinum Editions series.)

Dear Walt, my daughter is an adult now ... please, give us a proper edition.
