    I just got back from taking my two kids (3 and 5) and one of their friends (8) to the movie and they loved it. Dad wasn't too bored either. The 5 and 8 year olds were pretty much glued to the screen. The 3 year old got bored a few times, but made it through the entire film. Overall, pretty good for just about any age.

    Can hardly wait for this to come to Blu Ray so I can watch it with the kids.

    With Blu-Ray's demise on the horizon (http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=144020) you may not want to wait ;) :lol:

    I plan on taking the 5 year old sometime this weekend.

    as for BluRay, I intend on buying a $400 box and start purchasing movies for Christmas as I think others are about to do...there is a BluRay box out that will download movies too, but NetFlix, as of my awareness, doesn't do HD yet.

    What a joke - that ZDNet piece is pure fiction and also contradicts 90% of the rest of the media coverage.

    In any case...just got the original on Blu Ray, and will certainly look to get "2".

    I have a DVD-3910 Denon which upconverts. I love the view I get with it with standard DVDs, but I am curious as to how the Christmas BluRay box will compare with video (no comparison on audio, technically).

    Madagascar in Blu Ray looks and sounds stunning.

    Say Mad II tonight while visiting my grandson in the Chicago area....I'm not sure who liked it more - him or me. :D

    Took my 3 year old too see it this weekend, very enjoyable.

    Never saw the original, should I?
