Movie and DVD Reviews
Bambi has been released as part of The Walt Disney Signature Collection. Now celebrating 75 years, this classic animated film is as affecting as ever. There are also a few new bonus features here, which are combined with previously released ones.
I am not reviewing the film as almost everyone has seen it sometime in their lives. The animation looks beautiful here, and seeing the work that was put into it - including the multiplane camera that gives some of the scenes their depth - is a treat. If you haven't every seen Bambi, it really runs the gamut from happy and romantic to dark and sad. In other words, it is very similar to most other Disney films in that way and one character dies (and even if you haven't seen the movie, you likely know who it is).
Original Voices of Bambi and Thumper, Donnie Dunagan and Peter Behn Talk "Bambi" During 75th Anniversary Home Video Event
We sent one of our California correspondents for the Bambi home video press day release that commemorated the 75th anniversary of the movie. The event featured the original Bambi and Thumper voice actors, Donald (Donnie) Dunagan and Peter Behn. It was one of those type of events that I wish I was in California for, but it's really a treat to get to hear and see their conversation. The Bambi Signature Collection 75th anniversary Blu-ray releases on June 6th, 2017.

There is a new Cars 3 trailer, featuring new character Jackson Storm and legendary character Lightning McQueen. McQueen is not ready to go down without a fight. Who will win, the faster car or the smarter car? More information on the movie can be found below the video.

Disney/Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. has been releasing in markets around the world for a week before my preview on Tuesday night before the U.S. release, with friends of ours from Europe already having seen it. So my expectations were set pretty high from their glowing thoughts on the movie. Unfortunately, I didn't have the same feelings they did after the screening.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ruled the box office just a few short months ago, and now it is on Blu-ray/DVD/Disney Digital for everyone to enjoy at home. We received a Blu-ray and digital copy (I'm out of town and ended up screening the digital version). I'm not going to talk about the film itself here, because just about everyone has seen it at least once. There are bonus features, not as many as I'd have hoped for, but most or all of the ones here are worth watching.
