I watched Sleeping Beauty last night . Looks great and they cleaned up a lot of artifacts from the soundtrack but the thing that suprised me was the special feature on the disks called Dragon Encounter. It is a 5.1/7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack. I was shocked at how immersive the sound field was. It really showcases the greatness of the Axiom quadpolar surround speakers and there is plenty of low frequency energy throughout. Awesome demo scene.

The special feature called Dragon Encounter is short, it is only like 5 minutes long but it was a pleasant suprise.

For the actual movie itself don't expect jaw dropping sound, but the nasty sound artifacts from the original mix has been cleaned up quite nicely. The most noticeable improvement is the picture quality.

After catching up from my Christmas sebatical - I read this and tried it out last night. While the bass was impressive, I thought the best part was that the Fairy Godmothers sounded as if they were directly above and slightly behind my head. Neat effect.

I just ordered this BD today, as Disney announced it's headed back into the vault--prices are sure to start rising.

Loc: Indiana you hoser!!!!
What is with the whole 'vault' thing down there in Disneyland anyhow? Are they doing it to create a sort of 'Members Only' feel to owning Disney movies?

"Sorry kid, you're not old enough to own 'The Lion King'... it went back in the vault before you were even born"!!!

That's just wrong man!

Edit:
Looks like I posted to a bottom of the page item by Michael regarding "the Vault" before realizing there was another full page of replies.
-----------

I don't think it's so much a 'member's only feel'. What it is, is a brilliant marketing scheme designed to make people buy product now instead of later. Money in hand is almost always preferable on paper to money trickling in over time. You do it again every generation shift while rotating your product line through different vault cycles to keep the income steady and you probably have one of the best marketing schemes to come along in a long time.

Certainly, the ethics are questionable.
