The Great Bear DVD Review and #Giveaway
I was pretty excited about watching the new movie coming to DVD from Verticle Entertainment called The Great Bear. I was thinking it would be a movie about the wilderness that the boys would enjoy since they are into a lot of that type of thing lately. On June 10th, 2014, Verticle Entertainment released The Great Bear on DVD!
The synopsis says In this spell-binding adventure for the entire family, Jonathan looks forward to summer vacations with his grandfather who lives on the edge of a vast, enchanted forest that he is forbidden to enter. Annoyed that his kid sister, Sophie, is tagging along this year, Jonathan does his best to lose her ... and succeeds all too well when she’s kidnapped by a 1,000-year-old bear the size of a mountain! Venturing into the depths of the perilous forest to rescue her, he encounters a crazed hunter – as well as a host of strange, mythical creatures – and, along the way, learns some valuable lessons."
We were not impressed with the quality of this film as there was digital timer/counter at the bottom of the screen throughout the entire film. Not only does this distract me from watching the movie, it shows the lack in quality they dispense for reviews. Next, towards the very end of the movie the voices went out so there was no sound for the last 5-10 minutes of the film.
We spent at least 10 minutes trying to figure out if it was something we had done only to rewind and find it was a defect in the copy we were sent. The boys seemed to enjoy the movie up until this point but there was no way I was going to sit through another viewing of this one.
Suggested Retail Price: $20.99
Recommendation: I would not pay $20 for this or even half that because of the terrible - sorry. I really hope the copies sent to people purchasing this are better than what I received
