downloading the nutcracker...
When I was a little girl, I loved ballet. And I really loved Carroll Ballard's Nutcracker: The Motion Picture, probably because of Maurice Sendak's amazing illustrations throughout. (Yes, even as a child I noticed this sort of thing!) Last night I went to look and see if we had it on DVD, and guess what? This classic isn't available on DVD!
Of course, I was disappointed. I found a bunch of clips on Fancast/Hulu, but I want to watch the entire film. Fortunately, both Amazon and iTunes have it available to download. Unfortunately, I'm still a little behind when it comes to this technology. I've never downloaded a movie before. Music, yes. Movies, no.
This is where you come in. Have you downloaded full-length movies from either or both of these sources? Do you have any insights for me? Is one of them better than another? Would I be able to burn the downloaded copy onto a disc so that I don't have to watch at my computer?
Help! I really need a Nutcracker ballet fix soon!
