This is one of my favorite childhood movies. If you haven't seen it, you probably will not appreciate it the way people who grew up with this movie do. As such, I am not going to describe the movie - just to say it is a cherrished childhood movie, and its just as much fun now as it was back then.
The Blu-Ray seems to properly present this movie. There is nothing standoutish about the transfer. The movie looks good, but not as good as I was hoping - probably because of the film stock used. I can't fault the transfer at all, colors seem to be accurate, things are sharp where they need to be. There is a fine layer of film grain throughout the movie, so you got a nice film look. But it is not nearly as impressive as I was hoping it would be. I guess I was hoping for detail that was never there.
The same seems to be true for the audio. I was hoping for the track to just rock, with its heavy use of heavy metal music in this movie, but like other movies from the era, the music and movie seems to have been mixed seperately. You are not suddenly going to hear bass where you never heard it before, music isn't going to go into all 7 speakers. The soundtrack is faithful to the original, but there is nothing special to point out here.
There is a nice special feature - an episode of the animated show is on the disc.
