The animation reminds me of something from the 90s. It makes Tinkerbell look like a Pixar masterpiece.

Well thank gawd for that. There is enough cr4p on the format anyway, DVD can have that "gem". :thumbsup:

BTW: Anyone have an idea, how many movies are being made on average in the US (or even worldwide) per year and how many of these get a DVD release? Both major studios and independent releases?

I totally agree with you there. There are probably 100 titles that don't belong on BD, especially the Steven Segal movies. Not only were they aall bad movies, but the PQ and AQ are both lousy.

Delgo (film)

Delgo is a 2008 computer-animated fantasy film. The film was produced by Fathom Studios, a division of Macquarium Intelligent Communications,[3] which began the project in 1999.

The $40,000,000 film was a notorious failure at the box office, grossing just $511,920 in its opening weekend. It is widely believed to hold the record for lowest wide release opening earnings ever.[4] In reality the Carrot Top movie "Chairman of the Board" made almost $200,000 less.

9 years in the making? Oooof!

Surely something NOT coming out on HD has nothing to do with HD media as it's kinda the opposite... not HD media :lol:

It makes so much sense too. It looks like its from 1999 and thats also when Freddie Prinze jr, Jeniffer love, and chris kataan were still relevant.
