The Incredibles (Blu-ray) Official AVSForum Review - Page 2

Can't wait to finally have it on Blu!

Rumors came out a short while ago that there is indeed a Incredibles 2 in the works.

One reason Pixar's track record is so good is they realize story is even more important than the technical aspects. You can't have a good movie of any kind unless you first have a good story/script.

Since Brad Bird was both director and (co?)writer of The Incredibles, he is the one that would have to sign off on the concept for a sequel before it would even get the greenlight. He has said in numerous interviews that he has yet to come up with (or be pitched) an idea he thinks would be worthy of a sequel.

Then things must have changed since he said that. A short while ago I read that there will be a Incredibles sequel. This will still be after all the already confirmed sequels for Cars and Monsters Inc. As well as another new project in a medival fantasy type setting.

Anyway, that's enough from me about Cars....this thread is about Incredibles! w00t!

Merchandisizing is a big deal. Especially with movies/cartoons aimed at kids. Rumor has it that Symbionic Titan on Cartoon network is getting cancelled due to not enough toy licensing.

Bolt got a 100, as well as Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3 (and Avatar, as mentioned).

That's all I've seen, according to a quick scan of the master review list that Ralph posted.

Yes, and perhaps Syndrome as well. That's my take, anyway.

For us, it was Toy Story 2. All Pixar movies now have a special place in our hearts.

I'd bet they've sold just as many Toy Story toys. And if I had to guess, I'd say Cars 2 was put into production because of Lasseter's love of autos. He hasn't directed since the original Cars and he's back on the sequel.

That said, with eleven critical and commercial successes in a row they have in fact, never missed. No other studio (live action or animation) has ever done this. Ever. Based on their track record, I don't think anyone needs to question Pixar's motivations. They seem to know what they are doing, and no one does it better.

Nothing yet. There hasn't even been a URL assigned to it either which is odd. The URL is usually bought in advance. I hoping with the whole TRON fiasco that they will be putting some focus on The Incredibles. If there isn't one it will be very disappointing. So far I believe the cheapest advertised price ins $24.99. I think we've been spoiled with their coupons over the past year.

If I remember correctly, Toy Story 3 received a score of 100.

Great review Ralph and you cleared up something else for me as well. I keep seeing this listed as a 1.85:1 aspect ratio online and my curiosity aroused when I saw the Cars rerelease listed as 1.85:1 as well. I thought the Cars ratio was a mistake but in seeing the same ratio listed for this movie I thought maybe there was some creedence to it. Thank you for clearing that up with your always spot on information.

This was already a day 1 purchase for me but the review makes me salivate for it.

I see Amazon has the BD listed as 1.85:1, but the DVD listed as 2.35:1. Ralph has it at 2.39:1.

Hopefully we are in fact getting the BD in OAR.

Edit: I see Bluray.com has it the same as Ralph, 2.39:1, and lists the original OAR as 2.39:1. IMDB says 2.35:1. As long as I get OAR, I'll be happy no matter what the actual spec!

Greetings,

The original AR for the film's theatrical presentation is 2.39:1. Don't worry..
