Walt Disney: The Original Master “Imagineer”

1 August 2012 5:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Full disclosure: when I was a kid, I didn’t like Disney cartoons. My family took me to all of them, new and the regularly re-released: Pinocchio (1940), Bambi (1942), Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Lady and the Tramp (1955). And we went to see the live-action Disney flicks, too: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), The Shaggy Dog (1959), The Absent-Minded Professor (1961). I watched Disney’s short cartoons on his Sunday night showcase, Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color, and on reruns of The Mickey Mouse Club. Yeah, I saw it all…but I didn’t particularly like a lot of it.

Disney – the brand, not the man – was cute. It was nice. It was sweet. So much so, it made my cavities hurt.

When it came to cartoons, even as a kid I preferred the classic Warners shorts from the 1930s-1950s. They were made for less money and on shorter schedules than the Disney cartoons, »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Singin’ in the Rain

14 May 2012 3:37 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: July 17, 2012

Price: Two-dvd $14.96, Blu-ray $19.98, Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo $84.99

Studio: Warner Home Video

Singin’ in the Rain didn’t win an Academy Award back when it was first released in theaters in 1952, but it still became one of the most loved musicals of all time. It’s the American Film Institute’s No. 1 Movie Musical. We’re glad to see the film get its Blu-ray debut for its 60th birthday. A gift for fans indeed.

The movie’s story is reminiscent of the 2012 Best Picture winner The Artist. Set in 1927 Hollywood, Singin’ in the Rain stars Gene Kelly (Cover Girl) as Don Lockwood, a silent movie star with Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen, The Shaggy Dog). When the talkies are introduced and Don and Lina’s film is changed into a musical, Don’s voice is perfect for the new medium, but Lina gets left behind. »
