If there’s one company that knows how to do a decent Direct to Home Video sequel it is Disney, they have mastered the art. Their latest Jungle Book 2, manages to maintain most of the things we love about the original while giving viewers an update on what our favorite characters are up to.
One of my favorite films of 2013, the criminally unappreciated Saving Mr. Banks is finally available on glorious Blu-ray.
Having grossed over $1 billion in worldwide box office, it’s safe to say Frozen is Disney’s biggest hits in years. It is now available in glorious Blu-ray for your home viewing pleasure.
Here are a couple of cool clips from the brand new Mary Poppins Blu-ray.
This year seems to be all about Tuppence for the folks at Disney. Disney celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Mary Poppins with a gorgeous new Blu-ray transfer.
Everyone knows how much I love and respect Disney Home Video for the love and care they put into their Blu-ray releases – live action. I’m not counting the suckfest that was Iron-Man 3. For them the “Diamond Edition” label actually means something so they take extra time and care when releasing their classics on Blu-ray. The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition is finally out and it is glorious,.
While I’ve always been a fan of the Iron Man comic books, the movies have always left me a bit cold – even the first one, that everyone seems to love. So I can’t say that I was eagerly anticipating Iron Man 3, nor can I say I was really disappointed with it. It started off surprisingly well but just kept getting worse. Iron Man 3 is will be available on Blu-ray/DVD Sept 24th, the Digital HD version is available now.
Iron-Man 3 is coming to Blu-ray September 23rd. While I hated the 3rd act and how the movie eventually ended, I enjoyed the first 90 minutes while I was watching it. The Blu-ray package is coming in several flavors -including a super 3D all you can eat Combo Package (Sept 24th) and the HD Digital and HD Digital 3D (Sept 3)- when is Disney going to start supporting Ultraviolet? Extras include:
- Exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Look – Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World—Experience the spectacular new worlds, unforgettable characters, and pulse-pounding thrills of the upcoming blockbuster movie.
- Marvel’s Iron Man 3 Unmasked—Join cast and crew for a crash course in epic movie-making, Marvel style.
- Gag Reel
- Deleted & Extended Scene,
- Audio Commentary—With Drew Pearce & Shane Black,
- and more…
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.
Ralph is the destructive bad guy in an 8-bit arcade game that’s celebrating its 30th Anniversary. The problem is that he’s not happy with his role. Wreck-It Ralph is the story of his search for something better – and possibly the best video game movie ever. The DVD release is lacking in extras (there are none), but the film is worthy of repeated viewing.
