"Tinker Bell" (Blu-ray)

movie-november-2008-tinker-bell.jpgSynopsis

The legend goes that when a baby first laughs, a fairy is born, so one day, infant laughter is the beginning of Tinker Bell.

She is born in Pixie Hollow, which is governed by Queen Clarion.

The first thing a new fairy must do is choose a profession (fairies help Mother Nature along), and she chooses to be a tinker, thus her name is Tinker Bell.

The problem is that Tink becomes bored, and looks around at other occupations, and in doing so, she learns a lot about how Nature works.

One winter, Queen Clarion tells all the fairies that Spring is going to be late.

So, Tinker Bell, with all her new skills, assists the other fairies in organizing everything so that Springtime will be coming right along when it should be.

Commentary

The jacket says this is the first time we hear Tink's voice, but I think Tinker Bell spoke in Spielberg's movie, Hook.

Technical

The image has the look of a Pixar animated feature, and that means a wonderful picture. There wasn't much use of the surround channels though.
