blu-ray.com gives the transfers high marks, and the screen caps look pretty good to moi...

Well they must be looking at Blu-Ray's that were mastered from different masters. I was expecting the picture to pop, and I remember what the picture for The Santa Clause 2 looked like in the theater, and unfortunately, it doesn't have that detail and sharpness that they theater had. At most, for these Blu-Ray releases, it looks like Disney might've used a 1080i broadcast master, instead of doing a transfer right from the negatives. And, really, a 1080i broadcast master is only comparable to 720p on Blu-Ray.
So being able to watch a favorite movie of yours at any time, something pretty much no one could until the mid-80s, at this level of detail, which wasn't available just a few short years ago, at a cost of less than fifteen bucks isn't satisfactory?
