If I've said it once I've said it a thousand times: HD was created for sports. Whenever I go to a sports bar where I can watch a game in HD on a flatscreen then I have to come home and watch one on my TV, it ruins my day.

Even if they were there to be seen in the first place (which they're not), I don't need to be able to see every tiny detail on Cinderella's glass slipper in immaculate high definition. The best they can do for a traditionally animated film is, what, sharpen the lines? BATB on DVD is fine. I've seen some screencaps of the blu-ray, and I don't even think I like how hard the lines are. Sort of distracting to me.
Maybe not older animated movies, but contemporary stuff (The Simpsons Movie, Pixar movies, Venture Bros., etc.) looks fantastic because the colors are so deep and rich.

That's why I specified traditionally animated. I haven't seen a single Pixar movie in HD. I imagine, however, that CGI movies can benefit in a lot of the ways that live action can. A quick lookup of comparison shots from Toy Story 3 - there's definitely more of a noticeable difference there than there is for ANY of the 2D Disney films, IMO. Even the most recent, Princess and the Frog - yeah, the colors are a bit richer. But I have it on DVD and still think that looks fantastic.

I guess I can see where people would want their colors to be deeper and richer. But to me, it's not noticeable enough of a difference to effect me. I'm perfectly content with the way my DVDs look. The coloring in most Disney films wasn't really ever bland to begin with.

Your taste in everything has proven not to be, so I wouldn't comment.

While I agree that his criticism was boneheaded, don't go hatin' on Garden State!

Brad, if Natalie Portman starred in a movie where she wore a Nazi uniform and killed puppies, you'd still give it a B-.

This is true.

And it would still be better than Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium.
