Walt Disney Home Entertainment takes us on a dark and dazzling journey Into the Woods with this mashup of the many fairy tales they’ve so colorfully brought to the screen in animation form before. If you can imagine Once Upon a Time loaded with never-ending musical numbers you have a good idea what to expect from this impressive film. Besides a few spots where you know you’re on a movie set, audiences will no doubt get lost in the land of make-believe Director Rob Marshall transports you to.
St. Patrick’s Day is another fun holiday to celebrate with a few good movies between gulps of green beverages and hunts for that one person who forgot what day it was and will get your full wrath in one hard pinch. I wanted to take a little time to list a few films which will help you rewind after a hard day at work or at the local Irish pub. These are just a few of my favorites and a couple suggestions that give horror fans and family folks an alternative to the usual fare they’re bombarded with every year around this time.
Disney brings Maleficent home just in time for the holidays. It might seem like the evil fairy-turned-sorceress wouldn’t be the best houseguest. However, this movie lets us all in on what REALLY happened behind the scenes of Sleeping Beauty. All I can say is get prepared to be shocked and have a grand time with the loaded Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD Edition.
Disney continues its new tradition of unveiling all their classics in digitally restored high-definition with the release of Sleeping Beauty in a Diamond Edition. Having been released already in a Blu-ray format, the new version doesn’t create the same sense of urgency we get when one of the vaulted titles gets its first upgrade. Mouse House devotees will still want to jump up and grab one off store shelves before they disappear.
Walt Disney Home Entertainment has been dropping catalog titles on Blu-ray for a while now. Once every few months we’ll get a higher end title like The Little Mermaid or the upcoming Sleeping Beauty that gets their own time in the limelight. In between those, they’ve been delivering smaller films and collections in groups of four or five at a time. This time around they’ve mixed it up a little by giving us two newer top-shelf releases with three timeless tales.
