Cartoons and basketball, and the result is a tad Looney.

Excerpt: There are films to be considered to be nostalgic cult classics. Films that aren't necessary good by any means but stuff you liked back then and holds a special place in your head that sometimes you come back to, feeling like a kid in the process. I could name several of my time-capsule films. Felix the Cat: The Movie (laugh hard if you want), The Cat in the Hat (laugh harder), and Space Jam.
Excerpt: I picked this up at Best Buy for $9.99 and it turns out it was actually worth it. The PQ is way better than I thought it was going to be. Live action scenes look great with amazing detail, the cartoon scenes look a bit soft, but still the PQ is awesome. Audio is great as well. Dialogue is very clear and it sounds great. Extras are good, there probably could've been more.
Excerpt: A cute and funny movie with Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny paired together. The movie starts with MJ highlight clips that are very poor quality. Once that is done the video and audio quality is good. As for extras you get a commentary and just over 30 minutes of extra content. I got this for $5 and worth every bit of that price as it's mildly entertaining.
A nostalgic flick, with surprisingly good video, & effective audio.

Excerpt: When I finally caved and decided to pick Space Jam up on Blu-ray for only $9, I figured it'd be a neglected disc simply churned out to turn an easy profit; but boy was I wrong! Warner Bros. has given us a very decent disc. The video definitely exceeded my expectations, and the audio was pretty engaging. Well done Warner Bros., Well done.
Summary: Always loved Space Jam when I was young, but having watched this for the first time in nearly a decade it sure didn't hold up. All the basketball players can't act, but they are more entertaining than the looney tunes. The animation is still solid, and the basketball match is still entertaining, but it is dated. I believe it can fly, but I can't feel it can touch the sky.
Pros: Entertaining, High Production Value, Original
