On November 8, Walt Disney Home Entertainment is releasing another one of their 3D films, this time, G-Force, which was released originally in 3D. G-Force is the story of a team of very special guinea pigs, who, with the aid of technology, can talk.  These guinea pigs have been trained by an FBI Agent to do missions that human agents can't...

On November 9, Walt Disney Home Entertainment releases one of Walt Disney Animations made for 3D features, Meet the Robinsons. Rather than being a Pixar release, this movie was made by Walt Disney Animation Studios from an original story.   The movie can be summed up with a quote from Walt Disney himself, which appears at the end of the movie,...

Another in a series of re-releases but this time in Disney Blu-ray 3D comes Chicken Little.  Chicken Little has the distinction of being the first full length fully computer generated animated film made completely by Walt Disney Animation Studios and being the first film marketed under the Disney Digital 3D brand.  The movie begins with a...

Bolt Blu-ray Review

(Roger Longenbach)  11/10/2011 8:37 AM EDT
Bolt is one of those movies that come along where everything aligns at the right time.  A usually underrated film, this movie has a soul that will pull at your heartstrings at the end.  Bolt is the story of a movie dog that is the star of a popular TV show named after him.  Bolt has a uniqueness to him in that all he has known is his...

Toy Story 2 Blu-ray Review
Toy Story 2 3D   Toy Story 2 Blu-ray Review
(Roger Longenbach)  11/03/2011 9:31 PM EDT
Following the success of the first Toy Story movie, Toy Story 2 continues the story of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the other toys.  It's been a few years since we last saw the toys – Molly, Andy's sister, is older now, and the puppy we first noticed at the end of the first movie is older.  Andy is going away to summer cowboy camp, and...

Toy Story Blu-ray Review
Toy Story 3D   Toy Story Blu-ray Review
(Roger Longenbach)  11/03/2011 9:30 PM EDT
On November 1, Disney released the original Toy Story on 3D Blu-ray combo pack.  There is something about this release that I haven't noticed about most other 3D releases and that is: This movie looks better in 3D than it does on regular Blu-ray.  While Toy Story 3 was being made, the team at Pixar re-rendered the first and second movies ...

Cars 2 Blu-ray Review
Cars 2 3D   Cars 2 Blu-ray Review
(Roger Longenbach)  11/01/2011 4:00 PM EDT
Beginning November 1, you can buy the Cars 2 Combo Pack (Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy).  Cars 2, which is the highest grossing animated film of 2011 to date, is the continuing story of Lightning McQueen from the original story.   But that is about all it has in common with the first movie.  The first movie had the charm ...

Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Blu-ray Review
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides 3D   Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Blu-ray Review
(Roger Longenbach)  10/21/2011 12:14 PM EDT
The fourth movie in the Pirates franchise, this one is the first one that does not include Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, and is Jack Sparrow-centric.  The last time we saw Jack Sparrow he was in a long boat sailing towards what appeared to be Florida, with Hector Barbossa commanding the Black Pearl.  This movie opens in London, with th...

Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray Review
Beauty and the Beast 3D   Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray Review

On October 5, 2011, you can own another classic Disney animated feature (the first one nominated for an Academy Award for Best Motion Picture) that has been converted into 3D.  While the Lion King 3D continues to sell box office tickets during its' limited theatrical run in the United States, it was not the first one that they converted to 3D....
