    So we bought Pete's Dragon today, and I have to ask...

    Others who have this movie, is the video quality really bad on your dvd? On ours it looks terrible. I mean really, really bad. I'm beginning to wonder if it was pirated. (Bought it at Walmart for about $20).

    I just read a review on someone's site. They said: "Video quality was strong to quite strong, with the film's colorful palette presented clearly and sharply. I was pleasantly surprised by the overwhelmingly satisfactory transfer."

    All I can ask is if we're really talking about the same movie. :thumbsdown:

    PLEASE let me know what your Pete's Dragon dvd looks like. If this dvd I bought today is pirated, I'm gonna do my darndest to get a refund or store credit.

    Thanks for any input.

    TxBelle, this is going to seem like a "duh"-level question (please make allowances for the fact that I'm blonde, LOL)...have you checked that your DVD player works well on other DVDs you own?
    No new DVD should play poorly unless it's scratched or the optical scanner thingama-jig inside the DVD is dusty or damaged. I'd bring it back and try another copy if you're sure it's not the player. Maybe even buy from another store just to see if that helps?

    No, it's nothing like that. I definitely think it's pirated now. I learned tonight that this will be the second (or 3rd) time we've bought a pirated dvd there. :furious:
