Peter Pan : 5 of 5
I bought this DVD very soon after it was released, since I enjoyed the film so much on the big screen - I can't believe I waited so long to watch it! This is such an incredible rendition of the story - it really does a fantastic job of capturing the emotions between the lines so the audience can identify with every character, even Hook. I love the gorgeous colors of the film, the exciting effects, and even the music, plus the acting is truly wonderful (and I'm completely enraptured with Mrs. Darling!). It was fun to watch it again on a cold night, seeing them fly through the snowy streets of London. Two things stood out this time - Mr. Darling is a much more sympathetic character than the usual portrayal, which makes him quite likable, and I really enjoyed how certain Disney character design touches are used (I really wish this were a Disney production - it definitely feels like one!). The DVD has a nice amount of bonus material, but it's grouped into so many short segments that I wish there was a way to play it all without constant menu selection. I can definitely see myself watching this movie many more times in the future - it's a beautiful story and a beautiful film.
