One of the most beautiful CG animated films of the year, Monsters University, is now available on Blu-ray 3D and other home video/digital formats.
My favorite film of 2013, the severely underrated, The Great Gatsby finally arrives on Blu-ray 3D this week in a nice, full featured set.
I’m not going to go on and on about how much I love The Wizard of Oz. All right thinking people love the 1939 classic. After the huge Broadway success of Wicked there was bound to be a modern film version that returns us to this wonderful land. At one point there were several different studio versions of the Wizard of Oz (prequels, sequels, alternative takes) in production. First out of the gate is Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful. While the name implies grandeur and delight, the movie fails to deliver.
Disney’s surprise critical hit, Wreck It Ralph comes home to Blu-ray and DVD in multiple formats including Blu-ray 3D. We take a look at the Blu-ray 3D combo pack.
Is there a movie that Disney and Pixar isn’t giving the 3D treatment to? They must have found a way to do this quick and cheap because are churning out 3D re-releases like clockwork. Usually, this is the point where I would rail against this double dip. But for Pixar and animated movies the 3D coat of fresh paint actually works because a lot of these movies – especially Pixar films were made using 3D modeling and animation anyway.
Many of you know that I’m a fan of cheesy C grade movies that know what they are and don’t strive for greatness. One of the reasons the first Piranha 3D film works is they deliver the 3D Carnage and the Piranha action in all the ways you would expect it to. The sequel is about the same but it seems to skimp a bit on the Piranhas and spends too much time on build up. How is the recently released Blu-ray 3D?
The Titanic Blu-ray 3D release is a four disc package highlighted by a really nice new transfer of the movie and a couple brand new feature length documentaries. As someone who purchased the awful Ultimate Edition set 8 years ago, this new release contains all the features from the 2005 set but boasts a far superior picture upgrade. This new transfer is a lot nicer, crisper and contains a far superior aspect ratio but does not appear to feature a new restoration print.
I’m not sure why John Carter failed at the Box Office, I enjoyed the movie for what it was and thought it had the makings to be a pretty decent franchise. It is now available in a nice Blu-ray 3D Combo pack that includes the 3D, 2D and Digital Copy version of the film.
