1.)I don't usually bother writing reviews, because it always opens
a can of worms and reviews can eventually become a boxing match for
the righteous. I don't have time for nit picking and nonsense.
However, I wanted to write this one to help others in the US avoid
any stress in case they decide to buy this Blu Ray version, as it
is a UK import. Until my purchase arrived, I was unclear, because
most reviews of the Blu Ray import are lacking in this basic, clear
statement: IT WORKS. While I actually bought the "101 Dalmatians /
101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure" combo pack, the 101
Dalmatians disc is the same you get here. But, just so you know,
there is NO DVD COPY with this BLU RAY package.
So then, I will happily repeat myself for your benefit and will say
that, first and foremost: IT WORKS IN US BLU RAY PLAYERS without a
hitch! There are no PAL/NTSC issues. Also, as stated in the
listing, it contains several languages, including Spanish (which
the Aladdin Import Blu Ray does not).
The video and audio quality are what you'd expect from a US Disney
Blu Ray release, so I won't go into detail other than to say it
both are excellent

3.)Walt lamented the fact that he had to surrender his classical
line drawn ink and paint animation for the more affordable Xerox
process used in Dalmatians. But it suits the story. And the movie
remains justly famous for Cruella de Vil, animator Marc Davis' tour
de force in Disney villains. Dalmatians marks the break between the
lushness of Disney's early animated masterworks (culminating with
the extravagant and utterly gorgeous Sleeping Beauty 1959) and what
would become the popular and permeating 'style' for Disney
animation all the way through to The Little Mermaid (1989).
Ground-breaking, yes. But exceptionally entertaining as well, with
vocal talents perfectly pitched and Disney's insanity to animate
millions of 'spots' on every last dalmatian coat.
