  • Blog Post: Disney's "Haunted Mansion" DVD is worth it for the extras

    Let's start with the obvious. No one is ever going to mistake Disney's "Haunted Mansion" movie for "Gone With the Wind." That said ... I personally thought that this Rob Minkoff movie always looked great. John Myhre designed some just flat-out amazing sets for the film. And Rick Baker's make-ups for...
  • Blog Post: "Comic Book: The Movie" provides plenty of geeky fun

    You know, for years now, I have been thinking that I really have to get around to attending the San Diego Comic Con . Too many friends of mine have come back from that event absolutely blithering about what an amazing time they'd just had. What it felt like to be crammed into the San Diego Convention...
  • Blog Post: New "Alice in Wonderland" DVD has something for collectors and kids alike

    Woody Allen tells this great joke at the start of "Annie Hall": Two elderly women are staying at a Catskill Mountain Resource Resort. And one of them says "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says "Yeah I know. And such small portions." That joke immediately came to mind as...
  • Blog Post: Tracking down the truth about those delayed "Disney Treasures" DVDs isn't as easy as you might think

    Boy, I wish I had better news for you folks. But -- in regard to this whole what-actually-happened-with-Wave-3-of-those-"Disney-Treasures"-DVDs situation which we discussed at length here at JimHillMedia.com last Thursday and Friday -- I haven't been able to find one person at Buena Vista Home Entertainment...
  • Blog Post: Did Stan, Kyle and Cartman really save "Raiders of the Lost Ark"?

    Okay. Quick show of hands here: How many of you actually like the new improved version of "The Lion King" that made its DVD debut earlier this month? Particularly that Jeese-I-thought-that-this-was-a-lousy-song-in-the-Broadway-show-but-it's-even-worse-now new musical number, "The Morning Report"? For...
  • Blog Post: Wait! Who was that in Jim Henson's "The Storyteller" DVD?

    Being that I am a geek, I get obsessed with things pretty easily. Not in the unhealthy, stalker, I've-written-your-name-on-my-walls-in-Magic-Marker-until-the-fumes-made-me-get-dizzy-and-black-out kind of way. No, no. More in the way that I fix onto a subject and research the heck out of it. Then I spout...
  • Blog Post: A JHM exclusive: Your very first look at the "Finding Nemo" DVD

    Sometimes it pays to have friends in low places. I can't tell you how. Or where. Or when. (Why? Because that might result in someone getting fired. And that's a hard-and-fast rule here at JHM. No story -- no matter how great -- is worth someone losing their job over.) But recently, I got the chance to...
  • Blog Post: Buena Vista Home Entertainment's next 18 months worth of video and Disney DVD releases

    One of the nicer things about running a site like JimHillMedia.com is that -- every so often -- someone decides to share something truly amazing with you. The following is one of those items: A pretty darned complete listing of Buena Vista Home Entertainment's next 18 months worth of releases. It's all...
  • Blog Post: "Jungle Book 2" a bear-ly tolerable sequel

    Hey, gang - Jim Hill here. I just wanted to take a moment to formally welcome RKORadioPictures to the JHM family. Those of you who read the article that RKORadioPictures wrote for the site earlier this week (You know? That enthusiastic review of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" script that we ran on JimHillMedia...
  • Blog Post: "What we have here is a failure to communicate ..."

    What a difference four days make. You may recall that back on Friday, as part of my latest "Why For" column, I reported that Buena Vista Home Entertainment would NOT be producing a 2-disc special collectors edition of the "Lilo & Stitch" DVD. Several hundred e-mails (and a couple of dozen phone calls...
