Fantasia 2000 (Theater Release)

The visuals aren't quite as compelling as the IMAX version, but Fantasia still does an excellent job of bringing some great classical works to life, with the exception of a fairly mediocre Beethoven segment (the animation, not the music, being mediocre). The Gershwin and Sostakovich pieces are especially well done, and seeing Donald Duck lose his temper to the rhythm of "Pomp and Circumstance" is quite amusing and ironic. Compared to the original, Fantasia 2000 is much shorter, but also much bolder and perkier (Unlike the original, you don't have to sit through the orchestra tuning or listen to a stuffy music critic introduce the pieces). -- Yeah, it was really lame how the original had to sit through those things. That movie got really bored.
