The summer blockbuster season is here! “Media Services at the Movies” will look at what big movie is coming out this week, then offer a few movies like it from our collection.
We can’t think of much new to say about Pixar. The studio has some of the best talent in animation – second only to Studio Ghibli and infinitely greater than whoever made Norm of the North. Although the quality of their films has wavered a bit in recent years, you can still depend on Pixar to bring out the heart in their stories.
Pixar sequels in particular can be hit or miss. For every Toy Story 2, they put out a Cars 2. From early impressions, Finding Dory sounds like it lands in the upper levels of Pixar for its poignant take on disability. Dory will also be beautiful, as Pixar films tend to be. They look even more beautiful in HD; we’d go as far as recommending animation as one of the reasons to make the bump up to Blu-ray.
Don’t believe us? We have several of Pixar’s movies in Blu-ray (not all, since we bought many before Blu-rays were a thing). If you have a Blu-ray player, check one out and see the quality difference for yourself. It’ll definitely encourage you to opt for the Blu-ray of Finding Dory went it comes out.
