Castle Museum

Castle Museum

Klaipėda Castle Museum was founded on the occasion of 750 years anniversary of the city of Klaipėda. The museum was established in the northwestern part of the castle-site. The museum provides expositions showing the development of Klaipėda and its castle in the 13th – 14th centuries.

Expositions with old tools, guns, cannonry, archaeological finds and dummies dressed in traditional medieval and renaissance clothes reveal the former life of the Klaipėda castle.

The modern requirements were also taken into consideration when the exposition was prepared. The exposition had to be not only scientific and conceptual, but also visually attractive and educative. Much useful information about Klaipėda and its castle can be found in the virtual museum and historical computer game, available in the Castle Museum.

It is also worthwhile to visit archaeological exposures and remaining castle bastions. Archaeologists exposed the substructure of the 14th – 17th c. buildings (very impressive is the substructure of the Big Gunpowder Tower). Moreover, the visitors of the museum can walk down the oldest (16th c.) causeway in Klaipėda and have an eyeful of Klaipėda panorama from the Bastion of Frydrich.

This review is from: We all know that Beauty & the Beast is a 5 star movie. It's too bad this trfasner is not. This is exactly the reason Amazon needs a two-rating system. One for the movie & the other for the actual product. Nobody is getting their movie reviews from Amazon, believe me. What we need to know is if the DVD or Blu-ray is good. So, let me start by pointing out the good. You get all 3 versions of the movie. The sound is excellent. Very level, deep when it need to be & the music sounds clear & full. Colors in the movie are bright, while the darks are perfect, with no sign of artifacts in them. Now we get to the bad stuff. Let's face it, when we're buying any kind of video product, the picture is the most important thing. If the picture stinks, the whole think stinks. And although the picture on this Blu-ray doesn't stink, it's not perfect. Far from perfect in fact. Let's start with the first problem, the lines. In hand-drawn animation, the lines are everything. If they are not constant & clear, the characters lose some of their realism. The lines in Beauty & the Beast are very thin, which is great for details. However, digital media is just not able to handle thin lines correctly. Several times pieces of a line will disappear into the color behind it. Most noticeably on Cogworth's face. His clock face will come through & bloom over most of the lines on his face, losing most of the detail. But the main problem with the lines in this trfasner are the white halos around them. It seems like they used edge enhancements on the characters. But I'm not 100% sure this is what they did, as this halo never appears on any of the backgrounds. All I know is that at certain times, characters will have these halos surrounding their lines. The Beast takes the brunt of this & looks terrible in every shot. Just check out the sharp ends of his fur to see what I mean. Gaston also suffers from this, especially his face. What I did notice is that for the first half of the film, the lines seem to have been drawn with a dark brown color. Later on, the lines are black & this halo problem lessens. So I'm thinking that the problem is the digital media of Blu-Ray, even though it's high-def is not able to handle the dark brown lines against any brown-based back (flesh, brown fur, tan). When I saw this film at an IMAX theater, I did notice some of the same problems with the lines. So maybe the problem isn't even the trfasner, but the actual film itself. Maybe the trfasner is just so high-detail it's showing the film's flaws. In any case, these line problems can be distracting at times & I found myself noticing them & focusing on them, rather than the movie itself. Which is not a good thing. Other video problems include graininess within certain colors, especially yellows or gold, like Lumiere. There is also an annoying strobe like problem, when the action seems to be going fast. This was most noticeable when Maurice is escaping the wolves. To finish up, we all know the movie is great. Unfortunately, this film just doesn't look as good as let's say Pinocchio or Snow White. Which is kind of amazing, considering those movies are 50+ years older than this one.
