Neil, Goodwood. 1 September 2002

Despite the fact that Babe is not a big blockbuster action movie, it still features a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack which manages to greatly enhance the movie in its whole. Most of the movie is told to us by a narrator, whose clear rich toned voice draws us into the story of Babe. Babe does feature a very ambience rich soundtrack and helps to draw us into the country setting of the movie. The musical soundtrack is also extremely detailed and rewarding. The surrounds aren’t used as much, except at the end when Babe wins the contest and the hundreds of stunned spectators clap their hands loudly in appreciation.

Babe’s video quality is truly superb and is presented in 1.85:1 wide screen format. The fairy tale setting of Babe is brought to rich and vibrant life. The whole movie is presented as a tale being retold to young ones by a master storyteller reading from his book. Thus from the movie's opening scenes, we see a book been opened as we prepare to hear to story of a pig who could. Also the chapters are broken up into golden title headings, with three little mice reading the titles out for us. What Babe does really well, is to take the rich tradition of highly detailed illustrated children’s story books, and bring it to stunning life. The movie is filled with lots of small detail and is a complete universe onto itself. What helps make that illusion complete is the way the wonderful vibrant colours bring the farm, the animals who live and emerald green countryside to the screen as a lifelike illustration. There was no digital artifacts or anything else for that matter which I could detect which lessened the picture quality in any way.

There are no special features.

Menu navigation is plain and simple, which is Babe’s case is an asset as I suspect those who would watch the DVD most often are the young ones. The movie broken up into 16 chapters and running time is a brisk 92 minutes. Babe is highly recommended for those of you with children or those of you who still have a piece of your childhood inside of you. I watched Babe with my five year old nephew and he immediately wanted to watch it again. You have been warned.
