LOL Carol----we sure do a lot of that on this board, don't we!! HeeHee Sorry 'bout that! grinsmiley


Thanks for the link....I can't wait for you to get it either!! Applause PLEASE come back and review as soon as you can watch it---I'll be interested to know about special features and how it looks. Wow, I really never thought we'd see the day that this would be remastered!! (And, I have to say, the first one is pretty much the only one I care about....I can't stand the third movie, so I have no interest in owning the boxed trilogy. I have heard that Christmas in Avonlea is good though---has anyone seen that?)

Will do!
I e-mailed them about my order and they told me that their warehouse is getting the DVDs on December 14th and they will ship them out as soon as they get them.

I'm excited! dancegirl

I might order this, don't know. It will be in stores eventually, in Toronto at least.
I have seen the Avonlea Christmas movie. It is really good and takes place during the war. Felix is missing in action and Christmas seems like it will not be the same without him. It's a good movie.

Hey gang Wave

Well I got the DVD yesterday, perfect timing! Mail2
I watched the 1st part. It has 5.1 surround sound so I watched it with the speakers I had. It was great!
Something about watching a widescreen version of something, seems more natural to the eyes.
Even though it says it is HD, it's not really high definition picture like you see on Blu-ray Discs, the picture seems a bit grainy at times, and at times you can see the high def picture and the people sort of pop out.

Anyway, here are some pics I took of the same scenes so you can see the differences.
It looks like the Widescreen version cuts a little from the top & bottom to add to the sides, but like I said, that offers a more natural viewing experience, I also noticed a lot more details in the scenes that I never did before because there is a lot more visual information that our peripheral vision picks up in the widescreen format. It's also great to hear it with the surround sound. I'm a happy camper. funny tv (Watching Anne breaking a slate over Gil's head)

That's the limitations of try to make HD Widescreen from 30 y/o movies.

Anyway glad you got it!

Yeah, but even though the picture is not as clear, I still love it.
I really hope they make Anne of Avonlea this way too!

Wow, what a GREAT Christmas present----just in time!! Applause Congrats Carol!

Thanks for posting those pics....yes, that is surprising actually. I would have anticipated higher quality, especially for that price. It's neat that you are seeing things you'd never noticed before though....you just can't beat the scenery in that movie!! Thumbsup
