Oh, what a wonderful moment that was.. out ambling around, and spotted a rabbit in one of prime spots for the local warren. Took a couple good pics, before he hopped off, uncertain about the figure in black so close. I padded around to the other side of the bush, and there he was, even closer..

How close?

This close. ^_^ (Full view underneath)

What else matters so much in life as natural beauty such as this?
Reminds me of the extreme closeup of Hazel's eye at the beginning of the film Watership Down...
Ooh, now there's a film I need to see again soon! Wonder if it's seen an HD release yet.. one of those sparkling occasions in animation history, when everything just came together - the book, the animators, the music, and of course, those voices.

No, and it doesn't look like it will get beyond standard DVD any time soon. To be honest, the picture quality has been below par on every VHS/DVD version of WD I've seen, so I doubt you'd gain much with HD in any case. =:S
Mmm, seems to be a common problem with even relatively recent (well, it's not exactly from Buster Keaton's heyday =:) cinematic productions - even now, restoration's necessary. Not to mention productions like Rock & Rule or Twice Upon A Time, where the originals have been destroyed or made unavailable.

I wonder if there's maybe been some restoration involved in this forthcoming release.

Given the extras list I found on DVDTown, I'm pretty sure that that's the same version as the "Deluxe Edition" that was released on Region 2 a few years ago. In that case the quality is better than some but still not brilliant. I'd call it "fairly good", since at least the colours are bright, which is not something that could be said about the horribly muddy VHS transfer.
I thought it was until I read the text - and then spotted a fence and someone crouching reflected in the eye!
