Space Jam
Warner Bros / 1993 / 84 Mins / Rated G


MOVIE
This whole movie is one big commercial for Michael Jordan, but it's a good one at that. To cut the story gist down to a minimum, the 'ol M.J. has retired from basketball and now he is playing baseball, really badly too. 

Meanwhile down at Loony Toon Town where all the WB cartoon characters live all hell is braking loose. A bunch of little characters from moron mountain have come down to take all the toons as slaves for their bosses' theme park, but Bug's convinces them that the toon's need a chance to defend themselves. 

So seeing that they are so small, Bugs decides to challenge them to a basketball game, should be no problem right, WRONG! The little aliens steal some NBA talent and become really huge. So in an attempt to beat them, they enlist the help of big 'ol M.J. Will they win? You'll have to see. 

Overall the movie is a very fun watch and is something both parents and kids alike will love. There is also a few snappy one-liners and movie take-off's thrown in for good measure. Fun Stuff.

VIDEO

Overall the video quality was very good, with little or few noticeable artifacts.

Space Jam  is framed at 1:85:1 and is 16:9 enhanced.

This is a single-sided, single-layer disc.

AUDIO
The movie comes in a few sound formats, the main one is DD5.1 and on the whole sounds very nice, with good use of the surrounds and occasional use of the .1 channel. Dialogue was clear and easy to understand. Nice Job WB! There are also numerous other languages in DD5.1 on the disc as well. A Dolby Surround track is included on the disc for the Dutch language as well.
EXTRAS
This area is the only main failing of the disc, all that is really included is your general production notes, trailer, and other info. There are not really any very good extras at all. The trailer is very well produced though and is encoded in Dolby Surround. But on the whole I am pretty disappointed with the extra's on the disc.
FINAL THOUGHTS
A fun all round enjoyable disc, for the family.
