Gargoyles Full Movie English 1080p Hd
The other element that really nags at me when watching 'Hunchback' is that it feels like it's trying to be far more serious than any of the other Disney animated titles. The graphic bullying that takes place when Quasimodo is tied down in the middle of the town square is some of the starkest cruelty that's ever taken place in a Disney movie. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind Disney going for a darker approach, truthfully I welcome it. However, if you're going to go that far in one direction don't try to shoehorn in ridiculous humor in the form of joking gargoyles that hop around on torso stumps. Disney is no stranger to the annoying animal sidekicks, but the gargoyles in this movie are right up there with the worst of the worst.
Gargoyles full movie english 1080p hd
It isn't all bad though. 'Hunchback's muddled tones don't overshadow how beautiful the animation is. Watching this again, on Blu-ray, reminded me that this is one of the best of the early animated movies to combine computer graphics with standard animation. The result is a sweeping awe-inspiring view of Paris. The Notre Dame cathedral shines in the Parisian sun. Whenever the ugly, oafish gargoyles aren't on screen, the movie is rather splendid to look at.
It's a very sad movie to look at, let alone watch. Ever wanted to see a movie that's barely over an hour long but feels twice that? This is the one. Of course the irritating gargoyles are featured heavily here, because all of Disney's DTV sequels focused mainly on the ridiculous instead of focusing on adding more to the actual story.
Directional effects up front, like pans, transition smoothly across the front speakers. The center speaker accurately delivers the movie's dialogue with the front speakers chiming in with purposefully placed directional dialogue. LFE is strong and heavy during the dramatic moments and used whenever the music swells to a show stopping crescendo. I found the entire presentation a joy to listen to.
VIDEO and AUDIOWhile I was quite pleased with The Hunchback of Notre Dame's 2002 DVD presentation (which made it one of the first Disney renaissance films to be enhanced for 16:9 displays), Blu-ray kicks it up to a whole new level of satisfaction that should leave no one disappointed. The 1.78:1 transfer (a slight unmatting from the DVD's 1.85:1) is positively stunning, boasting sharpness, detail, and vibrancy that impress even as you put your face up to the screen. Close inspection of busy Topsy Turvy Day shots full of small moving confetti reveals only the tiniest bit of compression artifacting. For an animated film nearly twenty years old to look this good outside of the Diamond Edition line is most commendable. The 5.1 DTS-HD master audio soundtrack is every bit as praiseworthy too, distributing the rich choral score and thoughtful sound design with precision, clarity, and immersion.Presented in 1.66:1, Hunchback II doesn't look anywhere near as dazzling. That seems more the result of its limited production values than a shoddy transfer. The sequel displays a tiny bit of fine grain and some minor scratches. Otherwise, it holds up nicely, provided your definition of "nice" covers oft off-model characters, erratic colors, and wishy-washy action. Though not troubled in any specific way, the 5.1 DTS-HD master audio soundtrack likewise has much less impact than its predecessor. Both films get unadvertised Russian and Portuguese dubs and subtitles alongside Disney's standard three language options.Neither of these films is likely to be given a new Blu-ray transfer anytime soon (heck, they weren't even given new DVD transfers, eleven years later, for this release), but that is unnecessary, given the high quality of the former's presentation and the limitations of the latter's production. BONUS FEATURESNeither movie gets any new bonus features on Blu-ray, which won't seem too surprising to fans who know that the bulk of Disney's efforts of producing supplements are reserved for their big Diamond Edition titles (and even that has been on steady decline since DVD's sales peak). What's worse is that not all of their DVD bonus features make it to Blu-ray and that none of the recycled extras is upgraded to high definition.The original Hunchback is joined by three bonuses. First and longest is an audio commentary by producer Don Hahn and directors Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise. Recorded for the 2002 DVD, it is everything that a commentary should be, as the trio points out small details, discusses the technical challenges of blending traditional methods with CGI, and share considerations that rose during production, like deleted songs. If not quite riveting, this highly screen specific chat is nonetheless a worthwhile listen for Disney animation buffs.Next, we get "The Making of The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (28:02), one of my all-time favorite Disney bonus features. Jason Alexander hosts this Disney Channel special that covers all the appropriate bases regarding the animation, voice cast, and music. Alexander's material is quite entertaining and livens up the information that was not yet commonplace back in the '90s. Every Disney animated film from this era got a promotional special like this, but only Pocahontas and Hunchback have included them on DVD and Blu-ray.A multi-language reel plays "A Guy Like You" (3:23) in a sampling of the 31 languages in which the film was recorded. The section closes out with "Info" (legal disclaimers posing as something more) and a standard digital copy promo that doesn't apply to this set.
The first teaser-poster featured the logo of the 2003 TV series, which was eventually abandoned and then recovered in 2004. In addition to the main poster, there were several others including individual ones for each Turtle.At the 2006 Comic-Con, the TMNT panel screened an exclusive preview that contained a Splinter voice-over with shots of monsters, jungles, Foot Ninjas, facial tests, concept designs, muscle tests, dynamic fight tests, and some comedic scenes. Also, a sneak peek booklet containing storyboards, environment designs, and character designs by comic artist Jeff Matsuda was distributed.The teaser-trailer was released in July 2006. It starts out with the camera moving above the buildings on a dark night. When it finally stops moving, the Turtles open their eyes and all that can be seen is the whites of their eyes against the dark background. Then, the Turtles start maneuvering across the tops of the buildings, finally jumping down and landing in a dark alleyway. As each one lands, they perform kata with their respective weapon. After Leonardo finishes with his kata, Michelangelo can be seen falling into a dumpster. As Donatello opens the dumpster, Michelangelo says "I'm okay." A police siren is heard and then the car pulls up. The officer shines his light down the alley, but the Turtles have already disappeared. The camera pans down the alley to show a manhole cover being slid back into place, with the name "TMNT" on it. The movie's full trailer was attached on December 15 to the films Eragon and Unaccompanied Minors, another film by Warner Bros.. It was available on Apple Trailers, MTV.com, and Yahoo! Movies. It also debuted on the G4 show Attack of the Show!.On February 26, two television spots debuted and began airing. Later, two more TV spots, geared specifically toward the young children demographic aired on 4Kids TV, the channel that broadcast the 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003 TV series.In February 2007, Warner Bros. began an online campaign by creating a MySpace page for each of the Turtles . Within a week before the release date, several clips were unveiled through various websites.
