It was one of the most talked about films of 2012 and now it’s time for you and your family to enjoy this film at home with this 5 dollar bin special film Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph .
I loved the concept of a movie based in the world of videogames. so i found it cool when you first turn on the DVD you see the main menu which is designed to look like the arcade cabinet for the game “Fix-It Felix Jr.” from the film. It even has the old school demo of the game playing in the background. The different audio options include English (7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio & Descriptive video service 2.0 Dolby Digital for the hearing impaired), French (5.1 Dolby Digital), and Spanish (5.1 Dolby Digital). There’s also a few subtitle options like English (also an option for the hearing impaired), French and Spanish.
Disney threw in a few awesome little things as bonus features. The sneak peeks portion gives you a few previews for upcoming movies from the House of Mouse. The Monsters Inc. prequel is one I’m looking forward to. Also some advertisements for Disney related movies and programs with a personal highlight commercial for “Gravity Falls” a cartoon that I suggest you look into right away.
The Bonus features are actually worth it on this disc unlike some other Blu-Ray releases. There’s the obligatory Alternate and Deleted scenes which are alright but you can see why they weren’t included. A film that goes in depth about how the crew constructed the multiple game worlds for Wreck-It Ralph was also included. One of the cooler bonus things handed out on the Blu-Ray is the game commercials that were shot for the three main games in the film (Fix-It Felix Jr., Sugar Rush, and Hero’s Duty). They are all reminiscent of what I remember from the eras the games represent. For example the one for Fix-It Felix Jr. is just like the corny 80’s advertisements from my early childhood. They also threw in a theatrical animated short called Paperman which I thought was sweet. Now, my favorite thing was the Disney Intermission feature. Whenever the film is paused a guy pops up and gives you little tid-bits on game references and other easter eggs that can be found throughout the movie. There are definitely some cool things you wouldn’t notice at first glance.
The menu is pretty slick and completely matches the film. The multiple audio and subtitle options are good enough to include most who want to see it. The bonus features are the best parts as they provided a bunch of interesting stuff about the film and how it was made. I believe that Disney made one of the better films of the last year and is now giving you that magic on Blu-Ray for you and the family to enjoy over and over.
