decent preorder deal going on now for anyone set on getting the little mermaid when it comes out. http://www.blu-ray.c...-Blu-ray/70722/
I have pretty much all the classics, I've been tempted to go back and get a few of the lesser animated classics like the Aristocats and rescuer down under. Does anyone have anything good to say about brother bear btw?
Brother Bear is underrated. Double dipping on a Phil Collins soundtrack was a mistake. Tarzan was plenty. But otherwise, it has a lot going for it. If you're a fan of SCTV's McKenzie Brothers
(i.e., Strange Brew), and who isn't, then it's worth it for their appearance alone. Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas basically play Bob and Doug as moose. Best of all, you get an entire audio commentary with them in-character and lapsing even more into their Bob and Doug personae.
The film has a nice plot and some interesting effects such as how it
. It is also significant in Disney/animation history since it was the last really serious 2D animated effort (I don't count Home on the Range, nor should anyone) before the studio was effectively shuttered (and then resurrected under John Lasseter -- although the middling performance of Princess and the Frog combined with Disney finally finding its 3D footing with Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph may have doomed it again).
In summation, a worthwhile purchase.
