“may look a bit dated compared to Coco or Moana”

 

And close window, fuck this review, bye, that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever read.

 

Thanks. Don't let your ass hit the window on your way out.

What he meant by dated is that it’s a little rough around the edges. Has anyone seen the Blu-ray or Netflix transfers of Land Before Time? They’re in serious need of cleanup or they need to use a master that doesn’t look like it needs serious DNR.

They're dated because they look like someone hand drew them. That's so dated. Animated films are supposed to look photo realistic, with high resolution computer generated graphics created by sweat shops in remote third world countries.

I wouldn't know. I don't watch Disney / Pixar animated shit. The guy who wrote that line probably does. He mentioned "Variana" or whatever the European title for "Moana" is, and when I changed it he said it's because of some dead porn star.

I think that starting in the early 1990s - around Aladdin, maybe, or Lion King - , at least in mainstream US movies  hand-drawn animation has its own distinct flavor, probably as more and more of the work was done on computers.  Very bold/bright colors, very smooth lines.  (IMO, animation lost a little bit of character in that transition, but that's just me).  Mainstream US animated films of the 1980s (not just Bluth movies like Land Before Time and American Tail, but also things like The Rescuers) definitely have a look and a feel to them that, to me, feels like it's very "of the time" - or at least the tail-end of an era that began, as someone mentioned above, in the 60s.

It's not even an insult to say that. It's just obvious. Look at visual effects. Everything is of its time with regard to visual effects, and I prefer those old fashioned dated visuals of ILM and other companies with models and miniatures over CGI any day. 

Look at that, I used the word dated.

Info for Feb 28th release

 

We'll still announce on Monday but it won't ship until later in the week. It's a golden age title from the late 50s. First release from us stretching that far back from this studio's catalog. It includes the full score from the film, plus one side of an LP that had part of the score re-recorded. Otherside of the LP was unrelated material that wouldn't be of much interest.

I guarantee at least two people on FSM will be in a complete outrage since that throwaway unrelated material remastered or rebuilt was their Holy Grail.

How many late 1950s Rozsa LPs were re-recordings that had unrelated material on side B?

 

I haven't studied his LP programs in detail except for Ben-Hur.

Seems boring.

 

Based on what? Just the title? You might give sound samples a listen first before you just make that announcement. Personally I’m interested to hear what this is like. I enjoy Bruns’s score to 101 Dalmatians and his awesome Tchaikovsky adaptation for Sleeping Beauty. I don’t really know his work in live action so I’m quite interested to hear this, and them going so far back in the Disney vaults makes me hopeful they might tackle Clifton Parker’s Treasure Island or Robin Hood....or William Alwyn’s Swiss Family Robinson.

It seems you like everything with the label "film music". I'd say it's healthy with a critical approach, as there's so much good orchestral music out there that surpasses many a mediocre film score.
