Rango DVD review
Rango was so far under my radar, I didn't post ANYTHING about it on this blog. I don't know why, but I really had no desire to see it. It made a lot of money in the theaters and received a lot of praise in the process. It received an impressive 88% positive reviews on RottenTomatoes.com. Well, I waited until the Blu-Ray came out and whoa... let's begin.
What I liked about the movie:
The Voice Actors
What I didn't like about the movie:
The Stupid Birds
There are times when the movie is so slow. It comes in at 107 minutes, that's a lot for an animated film. ONLY A FEW TIMES, the movie had to fight to hold my attention, imagine a whiny kid at the theater, wow.
It's too good not to buy!
The story is engaging, the animation is beautiful, the actors kill it, what more do you want! There's a moral to the story for the kids, and smart jokes for the adults. Plus, there is so much to see on screen, a second and third viewing will be essential.
The Blu-ray/DVD combo:
Tons of Goodies
There's an alternate ending, 10 deleted scenes, commentary, featurettes, a look at the real creatures in the movie, and and and. There are so many goodies on this Blu-Ray. I really enjoyed watching them all. There are also some games for the kids to play with. Overall, a great movie and an even better Blu-Ray offering. Bravo.
