      Very poor quality transfer

      Posted

      The quality of the transfer is poor, lots of scratches in whatever copy of the movie they originally used as a source. Like watching a movie that's been playing in a second run theater for way too many weeks (well, for those that recall actual non digital film). They spread it out to fit in widescreen format - which means they had to cut portions of the image from the top and bottom of the screen. The original was made for television and the 4:3 aspect ratio. Verified this by DVRing it when CBS played it this season, and they displayed it incorrect 4:3 ratio, plus their print was obviously very well restored. (Note - the box may have said widescreen - in which case i should have known better myself, if so that's partially my fault). The subtitles (in grainy text) turn on and off automatically. Going to see if I can return it.

      My kids love this show and when my wife deleted it from the DVR on accident, my kids were torn that they couldn't watch anymore. After saying it would be on next Christmas they were even more upset. So I went to Netflix...and they didn't have it!! Bummer Netflix! This is a kid classic, come on! So I went to Best Buy and what do you know, they had it...AND price matched WalMart for me! Way to save the day Best Buy!

      This is one of those movies I grew up with as a child. Its nice having it on hand and being able to watch it with my kids. Compared to modern technology and smoother FPS these older movies are kind of choppy. I felt like I was going to get sick during the first few minuets. I think kids would not pick up on it as much... I never did. Goes along nicely with the other movies done by Jules Bass & Arthur Rankin Jr.

      Holiday Classic

      Though it looks a bit dated and the stop motion animation is mediocre at best, the music carries this through. Holly Jolly Christmas is now a Christmas music staple (it was written for this show). Rudolph is still appreciated by little ones (like my grandson). I wouldn't buy the Blu-Ray disc. That seems like overkill for a show that was made for TV in 1965.

      A Classic Xmas Tale

      Had to buy for the kiddos. Was a little wary that the stop animation might not hold the attention of my technologically spoiled little viewers of seamless modern day CGI masterpieces from the likes of Pixar and DreamWorks, but they were mesmerized from start to finish, proving that this title is indeed a timeless classic.

      You have to love when they come out with anniversary editions. Each time, they get the picture more clearer, and the sound much better then ever. That is what you get when you purchase this item. If you like the tale of Rudolph, as I did when I was a child, look at it today with it's wonderful picture and beautiful sound.

      It's hard to believe this classic has existed for over 50 years. I've enjoyed it many times on tv but have missed it several years too because of its air time. Now, I don't have to worry about catching it on TV. This special is a must own and an animation classic for years to come. Well worth the investment and purchase.

      When I was small I loved Rudolph, and now that I'm big I still love it. Love, friendship, courage, inclusion, misunderstanding--all these themes are explored. Lots of fun songs, and a great cast of characters. Narrated by soft-spoken, benevolent Burl Ives, you feel like he's your guardian and mentor. It doesn't get any better than this.
