Disney's Sword in the Stone remaster a total disaster! - Page 2

Everybody should fill out this form. This is what Disney contacted me with.

SKU per Best Buy is: 1006569

Keep it short and simple. 500 characters only.

That is the address we need to be sending our message loud and clear!

Please help out if you care people!

Also, some of you are annoyingly ignorant. I wonder why you are even on this website in this section responding to threads like this.

No way is that what the blu-ray looks like....
post #33 of 95
It does. At first I skimmed it and thought it looked good but thought the line work looked weird. Then I saw this thread and watched it... At the end of the movie when they show the crowd around the stone all the facial lines are blurred out. frown.gif

Some more comparisons stolen from another forum:

It does not look better in motion. Eyes and other details still look smudged and once you notice it you can't unsee it...

It also appears to be cropped:

The cropping isn't a huge deal to me. They did it with Hound and that one looked better than it ever has despite all its issues. This one though holy god does it look bad. If you are on a large screen good luck and if you can't see that this is basically photoshop paint day well then yo eyes be messed up.

Essentially each frame has been super Photoshopped and the result is lost animation detail. This is nothing new. It happens all of the time. Just not with Disney Classics! Hence the shock, awe and disappointment.

Folks said the same about the original Star Trek films.

Holy crap that BD cap looks like a watercolor painting. The movie looks that bad? Good Lord lol
post #41 of 95
Well, most Disney films of the era feature watercolor artwork, but I get your point.

For all their flaws, the Star Trek movie Blu-rays do look far better than the DVD versions. If you want to argue that, I suggest you try to watch some of those DVDs.
post #43 of 95
So, who exactly did the restoration on this? Was it farmed out, or done in house?

Wonder if HTV Illuminate "restorations" struck again...
post #44 of 95
It looks like a number of crude, automated processes have been applied to the transfer, i.e. cheap. Disney has complained about the growth of Blu-ray in the past and does not see it anymore as a direct replacement for DVD revenue. The Sword in the Stone must not sell that well on home video and this crummy "restoration" is what it received.

This is almost as bad as Gulliver's Travels. I'm just shocked they released this.

III and IV are horrid. TMP is OK. II looks very good.

The real problem for Paramount is that the old HD Cable broadcasts look better than the BD's for III and IV. They took those same transfers and murdered them with DNR.

But such is life.

Was just about to say the same thing. It's a touch better and that's it. What a mess.

A lot of scrubing made lines/details smeared. eek.gif

Disney's Facebook won't let you post to their wall so I found their The Sword In The Stone page which also won't let you post to their wall. However they had a post about the Blu-Ray being released today that people could reply to so I posted the Land of Whimsy link. They removed my post within an hour. Nice.

EDIT, just posted it again and they removed it within 5 minutes.

They forwarded my message at least! So they have to read about their terrible remaster at some point. I think people should send a short 500 character message to these guys and we can at least let them know they have been a bad bad dog.

WOW, that bad huh. Nothing like full on censorship! I have canceled a bunch of Disney preorders because of this. If they want to censor things than I am all but out. I doubt anything will be done.

I say you keep posting!

I might join in as well.

Just in case anyone would like something positive to dwell on, I got my copy of Robin Hood last night and it looks very good.

Every time I post the Land of Whimsy link they delete it. They didn't delete me complaining about being deleted. I just posted Blu-Ray.com's and Doblu.com's reviews and posted a bunch of the screenshot comparisons so lets see if they delete those.

Oh I've been meaning to get that. Glad to hear it looks good.

I just posted the link on that Facebook page. Let's see how long it lasts. biggrin.gif
post #58 of 95
I just saw that. They deleted all my posts now and another person's post about it being rude of them to delete mine.

EDIT Just looked again and they deleted your post with the link too. Lasted less than 15 minutes.

Be sure to mark my review as helpful, if you have time, on amazon under the name crank! Or write your own review with bluray in the title. Let people know this isn't acceptable.
