Format:DVD
In all my years of reading reviews and shopping on Amazon I have never been compelled to write one myself until now. Like many parents, when a new disney film comes out on dvd, I usually buy it, watch it during movie night, and forget about it by the time the credits start rolling. My daughter is five and she enjoyed it but to me, as an adult who can look back at his life and appreciate all those struggles and "twists and turns of fate" that shaped who I am, the emotional impact ressonated much deeper. I was skeptical of this film due to the fact that disney's computer animated ventures without Pixar on board have consistantly been pretty weak, but in my opinion this one can stand toe to toe with every Disney/Pixar film to date. The director, Stephen Anderson explains that his life was extremely similar to that of the main character, Lewis. The passion that he had for this project is evident in every single detail of every single frame. The musical score by Danny Elfman and the brilliantly heartfelt song "Little Wonders" by Rob Thomas fit with the theme perfectly. I've always judged movies based on the emotional response I have to them. If a movie can bring tears of sadness to my eyes, that's one thing, but if it can make me genuinely cry out of sheer happiness, well then in my book it's a winner because I am extremely critical of sappiness and what I call "emotional blackmail". I recently showed this film to a group of 30 of the most hardcore juvenile delinquents gathered from 20 different counties around Ohio and we spent an hour afterwards talking about it. I spend all day with these kids, and the way they let their guard down and opened up about their lives during our discussion was............magical. I don't see that side of them very often and I'm thankful that a "silly disney cartoon" inspired that.

We saw "Meet the Robinsons" in the 3-D version at the theater and my kids laughed about it for days. Too bad they couldn't release the DVD in the 3-D version, but it's still an excellent film for children. Personally, I also loved hearing the voice of Adam West in the film.

The film is based loosely on William Joyce's, A Day with Wilbur Robinson. If you haven't read the book, I highly recommend it. William Joyce ALSO was the artist behind Rolie Polie Olie series. The book is quite different from the film, but there are direct parallels. For instance, there is no orphanage theme in the original book and no Bowler Hat Guy. However, many of the other characters are present in both. Stylistically, the book and the movie have a pronounced retro- animation/cartoon feel to them. It is a very refreshing artistic style to watch and makes for a unique animated film.

The DVD contains a fairly extensive set of features, but nothing out of the ordinary. For future releases of children's videos, I'd suggest adding a reading of the original book. In the few DVD's we've purchased with this feature, it's encouraged my children to read the actual book.

I highly recommend this DVD for your child's video library. It's a film enjoyable by both adults and children. The film is funny and presents a very clear message about the need to celebrate our human differences and stresses the importance of family and friends(adopted or otherwise).

5.0 out of 5 stars Hi-Def Family Fun with a good message October 23, 2007
Format:Blu-ray
This movie is a wonderful family movie with great lessons about true friendship, forgiveness,adoption, restoration, and family. But not only that it is full of clever and witty dialogue to keep the parents entertained while the colorful images and special effects keep the kids entertained. This bluray version is just as good as the film original if not better. The 1080p factor brings this film to a 3-d likeness. This is a must own if you love disney and hi-def entertainment. Dont let anyone tell you otherwise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Past, Present, and Future Weave Entertaining Flight April 29, 2007
Evaluating `Meet the Robinsons' depends on whether you entered the theater offering 3-D glasses. Either way you receive excellent family entertainment, even if there are elements of the film you've seen before. Resembling an animated version of `Back to the Future' or `Peggy Sue Got Married,' `Meet the Robinsons' is a briskly based, nicely woven tale about belonging and achieving.

Starting we find the typical desperate mother leaving her baby on the orphanage steps. Her son Louis becomes a nervous inventor at the orphanage and a nuisance to everyone, especially his long-suffering roommate, Goob. Having an intellectual disposition doesn't help him in adoption interviews, and ingenious inventions that seldom work, don't endear him at school. Add to that a pure villain comes upon his scene, known as "Bowler Hat Man" (Whose hat makes him like a nimble, but less scary nemesis comparable to "Dr. Oct".) his life comes into disarray at science fair he's finally sure he'll win.

Using time travel well and peril and humor that truly entertain, `..Robinsons' message to always persevere and the plot's neat and heart-felt resolution will make every family member smile.

(This being my first 3-D adventure that actually worked certainly gave the movie a lift, too!)

4.0 out of 5 stars AN ACTUAL REVIEW OF THE DVD! October 10, 2007
By Dave
Format:DVD
Unlike the other 40 plus reviews on here, this one is an actual review of what you are thinking of purchasing: the DVD. I meant to see this movie in the theater but never made the time to; watching the DVD was my first opportunity. I enjoyed the movie; it was a cute tale of a boy in an orphanage who has a deep desire to find his mom, the only person he believes would want him. He's a little braniac who loves to invent things, and turns off each prospective adoptive parent (over 100 have "interviewed" him and turned him down). Through a quick series of events, he is thrust into the future and meets the Robinsons, any kid's idea of a wacky and fun family. Lewis and the Robinson's bond immediately until they discover he is from the past. You'll have to watch the movie for the rest of the story. I was not on the edge of my seat with enjoyment like I was with "The Incredibles" or "Ratatouille." At the end of watching this, I had the same feeling I did from watching "Cars." A really enjoyable film but I wouldn't rush right out to see it again. On the plus side, the characters are fantastic; animators have done a great job with Lewis and especially Booger; rather than being 3D animation shells, you really do get a sense of their sadness, happiness, and wonder. Truly amazing. The villain of the movie, Bowler Hat Man, is extremely original; even though a villain, his characterization and portrayal by the animators keeps you from despising him 100% (don't want to give the plot away so that's all I'll say). The 5.1 sound on the DVD rocks - make sure your subwoofer is on and that you are right in the center to take advantage of it. In addition, the animation is great too; so many thing to take notice of and a few inside jokes sprinkled throughout. Read more ›
