The Aristocats: Special Edition Blu Ray Review

The Aristocats: Special Edition Blu Ray Review

Before the whole CG and 3D animated boom happened, Disney was king of the hill when it comes to full-length 2D animated films. Unfortunately, Disney hasn’t been as aggressive as they should be when it comes to re-releasing their classic 2D titles on Blu-Ray. There are probably a lot of reasons for this, but chief among them is practicality, as the amount of time and effort a studio needs in restoring and remastering said classics would not be practical in terms of cost. The alternative is to release a shoddy, aged product, which isn’t good business either.

My Transformers preference leans more towards 2D, and considering Michael Bay’s last two live-action/CG animated Transformer movies left a sour taste in my mouth (when did Louie Stevens running away from explosions become more important than the autobots fighting the decepticons, anyway?), checking out the most recent CG animated iteration of Transformers, Transformers: Prime, wasn’t a priority for me. The Blu-Ray release of Transformers: Prime (released last 3/6/12), made me realize I’ve been missing out on something really good.
