The eyes did tear a couple times, yet for the most part, I'm thrilled. I find I have a tad more … [Read more...]

A couple weeks ago I was approached to review Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition, which is being released from the vault onto 2-Disc Blu-ray Superset with Digital Copy (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) on October 7. It was then that I realized that we didn't even have Sleeping Beauty on DVD at all, only a VHS copy. Yes, I said VHS. Well, that wouldn't do! Since my girls watched Malificent earlier this year, it's … [Read more...]
