1.0 out of 5 stars Blu ray transfer of a sweet movie ruined by DNR, 29 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Sword in the Stone [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I cannot understand how an animated movie can be so badly ruined. The DNR, which I am always against because it alters the original aspect of a movie and results on lack of detail, is so excessive in this "restoration" that it creates ghost lines, blurry figures and backgrounds, a huge lack of detail and an ugly, artificial softness in the drawings. Companies that are supposed to love their movies should never use DNR, that is a crying shame. Why Diney decided to ruin this movie to me will be a mistery to me. Why the obsession with artificial DNR, here and anywhere else, will always be a mistery to me. I never thought I would feel uncomfortable while watching this very dear movie from my childhood. SHAME ON DISNEY, SHAME ON ALL COMPANIES USING DNR.

R. Smith says:
in-depth blu-ray site Blu Ray Review also slammed the quality of this item, claiming it was by far the worst Disney cartoon blu-ray release put out by them thus far.
It's a mystery why this was put out in this hackneyed shape.

Thanks for the info. My eyes are not seeing strange things, then. Will they ever release a remastered version? Will the guilty party be fired? Who can have greenlighted something like this? Mysteries, mysteries...

Your review does not show that you are a "verified purchaser". Do you actually own the UK Blu-ray of this movie? I just want to make sure that the DNR problems that are well-documented in the US version of the film also apply equally to the UK version. Thanks!

You are right, I have the US version, and there is where I uploaded my review. You know that Amazon, unfortunately, mixes reviews from different versions of the same movie. So, I cannot tell you about the UK version, but I suspect that the digital master is the same, as is usually the case (only one restoration and one digital master are made for all editions). However, if you find out differently, please, let me know. Lucky for us, this DNR problem does not appear in other Disney Classic titles more recently released.
