Tangled - Page 3

post #61 of 129
I'm not one who gets into collecting slipcovers, they're pretty much disposable to me, but the 3D slipcover that comes with the 3D version of Tangled is really nice. If more slipcovers looked had this quality, I might collect them too. It should really stand out in stores that actually stock the 3D version.

^I was thinking the same thing. I throw away every slipcover, but this cover is sparkly and fairly substantial.

The 4 disc version turned out to be a very good bargain for my family especially given the recent Amazon price reduction. One daughter got the 3D version, I kept the 2D, another daughter got the DVD while my wife got the digital version to play on her iPad if she should choose.

This is not a "joint" with Pixar, so I guess that's the difference; Disney animations are usually musicals, but not always. I don't think it's more "singy" than any other of their animated films.

Anyway, I just finally caught up with this in digital Real-3D. I was impressed. Good story, great character design, and OK songs. Though produced by John Lassiter, it comes just a bit short of a typical Pixar production. But if the 3D can be replicated at home, it'll be a treat.

My wife and I watched 'Tangled' last night. We enjoyed it even more than the first time we saw it. A really terrific movie! We'll be hosting a movie party in the Booth Bijou Garage Theater in April and 'Tangled' will be the feature. I might even watch it another time or two before then.

Interesting. The blurring in the 2D version looks like it's to emphasize a sense of depth in the only way 2D movies can(depth of field).

That is indeed quite interesting. If Blu-ray 3D releases contain built-in companion 2D versions with some dampening of what I see as excessive artificial depth-of-field and motion blurring of CGI titles, then there might actually be some real value to this whole 3D technology after all... and you don't even need the special glasses!

I'm not sure I understand the question, but for the base stream the left edge's border size varies shot-by-shot and grows/shrinks during pans while the right border is fairly small and static.

The 2d & 3d versions are on separate discs on this release... sorry, not a feature of the technology!

I hope the second time is a charm. I watched last night and thought it was good but not great. Not in the same ballgame as Pixar.

+1. A rental sufficed.

Bring on The Incredibles and The Lion King. Now that's what I'm talking about!

Is the lion king being released in 3d? I thought I read that somewhere..

I actually was able to enjoy the musical numbers WAY more than most recent Disney releases, especially the one in the "Duckling" with all the guys, very good stuff! Not usually a fan of the newer Disney musical numbers but this one is a keeper. My 2 cents. Overall I can't find a fault anywhere in Tangled, AND the previews ROCK! Cars 2 and Winnie the Pooh got me a little giddy. I have a 3 yr old so I can be giddy, right?

Technically speaking, a Blu-ray 3D always has a built-in 2D version by virtue of the way it's implemented. Whether or not it's made accessible is a separate question, and it sounds as if the Tangled BD3D disc is authored such that it will only play in Blu-ray 3D players. However, it's still possible to mux out a single eye-stream for 2D HTPC usage.

Understood, but I was stating that the proposed feature of providing a *blurred* background for 2d viewing and a *crisp* background for 3d viewing off the same render on the same disc is not a feature of the 3d blu ray spec.

Gotcha, I misunderstood your post. Anyway, it will be interesting to see more comparisons like this where the 3D version is more than just the addition of an alternate eye-stream to the standalone 2D version.

Just finished watching this movie we all loved it. The pq was outstanding as was the audio.

I liked this movie a lot more than I would have thought. Great blind buy!

This is Disneys explanation of floating windows.

This was pretty fun once it got going. The five year olds in our group loved it, but the tweens were a bit bored. Very good video and pleasing audio. I put this about Princess and the Fog level.

I can almost imagine it. Upon consideration, Adrienne Barbeau probably would've made a great live-action fit for Mother Gothel in Tangled.

We watched this last night, what a great surprise! I had no idea it would be so good. We really enjoyed it and I am so pleased to see Disney bringing music mack to their animated films. I will be buying a copy for sure, maybe not to the level of Toy Story but better than Bug's Life and I enjoyed it more than Princess and the Frog as well. Very much recommend at least a rental.

For me, on the other hand, this is the largest reason I haven't even seen Tangled yet.

Your loss.

I was pleasantly surprised by how good the movie was. I had heard a few disparaging remarks about the musical numbers, but found them entertaining.

I had no intention of buying this one and rented it. After seeing it, I'm sold.

That, BTW, is why I fear the studios may be cutting off their own noses with making renting an unpleasant experience. I wouldn't have even considered this movie as a blind buy. However, having seen it via Netflix, I totally changed my mind. They got a sale from a rental (or at least they will this week when I buy it while I'm out buying "The Incredibles").

I have to wonder how many others did the same thing. Sometimes, you just need to see it first before you commit a lot of money to this stuff.

Me too, I'll be ordering both titles from amazon this week. The music is part of what has made some of the great Disney classics and for me it has been a big part of the emotional draw the movies create. Huntchback marked the last of the Disney musicals. Tarzan marked the fist in many years to be absent of musical numbers by the characters. Many of the best in Disney's library have them and Alan Menken (Tangled composer) has been at the helm for most of them. He and Howard Ashman were a fantastic team up until Ashmen's death during the production of Aladdin. Anyways, the music of Disney is absolutely epic in my opinion and while Tangles may not be competing with the musical numbers of Aladdin or Lion King it was still great and my kids were captivated throughout.

I've seen it now and... yeah. The music was definitely the worst part. The film would have been better off without the musical numbers.
post #89 of 129
I didn't mind the music at all. Granted there was nothing... memorable. I mean, these aren't going to join the canon of Disney classic tunes, but they worked for the movie.

Many people have complained about the singing in the pub scene in particular. It didn't bother me, and actually it was important to establish the "comradery" in order to explain the rougues' actions later in the film.

We showed 'Tangled' to some friends last night. Their first viewing, our third viewing. They absolutely loved it.

We'll be showing it again on Saturday in the Booth Bijou Garage Theater. We should have about 16 people for this showing. Despite having just seen it last night, I'm already looking forward to seeing 'Tangled' again. Very very high re-watchability factor!
