  • Poor transfer

    By Cinebuns
    Film: ***** Transfer: ** Poorly encoded video that cannot faithfully display the beautiful pencil animation (artifacts everywhere), despite the source seeming to be in very good shape. It's also cropped from 4:3 to 16:9, so lots of information missing top and bottom (even the SD version).
  • Boring

    why do people enjoy a poorly drawn non talking film.just a lot of annoying music playing to random grainy pictures with nothing really he builds a snowman that melts,so what? I wouldn’t watch it on tv for free and certainly wouldn’t pay for it.theres plenty of great Disney films out from the same time with beautiful animation and actual speaking so that means there’s a story to it.if I wanted to look at pictures I’d be into art and I hate art

    Great Christmas classic, but where the hell is the original intro????
  • HD version is appalling quality

    By Andrew Till
    I love The Snowman but the poor image quality is extremely distracting. It looks like it's been 'sharpened' to look more HD, but all it's done is accentuated the poor transfer of an old film. Had I known it'd look this bad I'd have gone for the standard definition version instead.
  • Poor quality HD

    Picture quality of the HD version is atrocious. Stick with SD.

    Wonderful film, but £6.99 for 1/2 hour that is unacceptable!! I should have read the reviews before purchasing!! Very very disappointed with iTunes. Never again!!! iTunes you seriously need to credit people for this and review your pricing!!!
  • a modern masterpiece

    By Mark Learey
    this animation evokes wonderful childhood memories - the music and animation combined is perfect. I am sad to see the David Bowie intro missing from this remastered version and the aspect ratio is wrong with strange framing, feeling very much like someone with a pair of scissors has simply chopped the top and bottom off what was an artistic masterpiece! :(
