Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "The Little Mermaid" (1989)

One of my all time favorite Disney movies is out on blu-ray today, and you just have to check it out. Of course you've already seen it, but hey, you can always show it to a kid who hasn't yet become acquainted with the film that kicked off the Disney "renaissance" era (otherwise known as the movies that defined my childhood), that great run from The Little Mermaid through The Lion King (1994), when they were just hitting one home run after another. Trust me, even in this age of CG animation, the look, the story, the characters and especially the music- it's timeless and it all holds up. This is one of the great ones.


Trailer (it says it's the original but it's actually from the 1997 re-release, which is a better one):
