The Blu-Ray is a great testament to the film popularity with a ton of extras and goodies to feast your eyes on. I kept thinking would a 1080 upgrade be bad for a film like this as it could prove dated with the toons and actors mixing it up on screen but trust me it does not and if anything only shows how groundbreaking the effects were for its time and can still be appreciated today.
There is audio commentaries from Robert Zemeckis, Frank Marshall etc, mini Roger Rabbit shorts, featurettes, the deleted pig head sequence with added commentary plus a lot more to keep any animation fan happy. A great release for a great film
However, I’ve marked this product down as I was expecting the cover artwork of this to be as the one advertised in a sleeve perhaps...... however, I just received the standard jewel case with the standard cover art (I repeat, not the image used in the promotion for this item).... very disappointed....
Keeping in mind that it is a quarter of a century old I think they did a really good job restoring it. Picture is sharp without too much noise, some can be seen in darker areas of course but not enough to annoy. Compared to a deluxe edition DVD I also own it's much better, well worth the upgrade. The sound is DTS-HD MA 5.1, unfortunately not much of a difference from the DVD. Minimum usage of the surround speakers and subwoofer made it a bit of a dissapointment, but was compensated by excellent separation of the front and center speakers. The speech and Jessica's song was coming clean from the center and the sound effects from the front speakers, with some of it from the center without making the dialogue difficult to hear.
A highly recommended classic to everyone!
