A Bug's Life, Monster's Inc. and Finding Nemo have all been released in the UK with a DTS track, as opposed to the US. Here's hoping they at least include a DTS for the UK edition. All signs point to yes! The soundtrack for this film was amazing! And the animation, while subtle, has also improved greatly. Can't wait for this DVD!
Pixar's "fullscreen" version of A Bug's Life (their other 2.35:1 film) was actually worth watching at least once for me, because they actually did it themselves, recompositing each shot. So that was actually an interesting bonus. Hopefully should they wish to include a 1.33:1 version of The Incredibles on this upocoming DVD, I'm sure it will be the same and thus done by Pixar themselves, so it's worth watching at least once, just to see the differences. But I'm a Pixar junkie... :b
Good news, but man now I can't wait for Easter. I don't think I have to tell you all that I will buy this on release day, the Incredibles stands as the only movie I have ever seen in the theater more than once.
They have recomposed/re-rendered all of their films for 4:3 except for the first "Toy Story". In the case of the non-scope, titles, this has consisted mostly of the rough equivalent of matte opening (rendering extra information top and bottom), but there were a lot more elaborate alterations done for "A Bug's Life", as demonstrated on the SE DVD.
Brad Bird's compositions took advantage of the full width of the frame in "The Incredibles" even moreso than "The Iron Giant", so I certainly hope they don't do a straight Pan & Scan, but I probably won't watch the 4:3 version either way.
Even though I didnt allude to it, I try to do the same. However, I generally prefer the way it was exhibited in theaters when I watch, and judging from what I saw when I did, we should get a flawless panarama in beautiful animorphic widescreen with all the goodies that go with it.
Off my above nonsensical posts - I haven't seen this yet but will be happy to pick it up. I actually sold my prior Pixar releases as I'm not sure if their pre-MONSTERS INC. titles (including TOY STORY 2) hold up that well for me personally anymore. I like INC. and NEMO a lot though, and suspect that I'll be getting INCREDIBLES and all their future stuff. Their animation is really hitting a peak these days - imagine what CARS and their other future titles will look like!
Hopefully the will give the OAR version a bit more room to breathe than they did on Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc. Ditch the 'recomposed' version, and this could be a steller set with an immaculate transfer, DTS, and a ton of extras.
It will almost surely follow the format of the Finding Nemo release. Not ideal, but still very good. In either case, I can't wait to stick this in my DVD player. Guess I'll just have to see it again in the theaters to hold me over.
Their animation is great but not what blows me away. To me they could make their movies in crayon and they would be just as enjoyable. What makes me take a step back is Pixar's outstanding storytelling. Literally every movie theyve made has been enjoyable. Thats amazing. They seem to have what Disney has long forgotten how to do.
