I agree wholeheartedly! I reviewed this release (back in 2010) and nominated it (then) for the top-animated movie for PQ! Here's the review if you care to read it:

I hope to rent this before I leave on a business trip in early August. Thanks for whetting my appetite Phantom. I don't think I'm going to like the movie itself from all that I've read, but I can't...

Transcendence

This is a striking Blu-ray title....in outdoor, daytime scenes or in indoor scenes with good lighting. But outdoor, nighttime scenes and indoor shots with poor lighting suffer from...

I hope you're right about the upcoming Book of Life. It will be hard to beat Rio 2, Monsters University and The Smurfs 2 but it does look promising. The thing about Rio 2 was that the dazzling colors...

By all means go out and rent it! The ideal would be to see Rio first, but it certainly isn't necessary. In fact, I had forgotten much of what happened in the first installment but I was able to...

I just remembered that I put House of Cards in Tier Blu recently, but it still didn't beat out Enders Game in the live action category.

The Man from Snowy River
