Consumers see the billboards and advertising for these movies that get released on 3D in theaters... they know the movie exists. Often it isn't ideal to see them as a group in 3D in cinemas, though, given some people in the group may wear corrective lenses or get headaches from 3D.
So we wait. We sit and expect that we'll have the opportunity to watch it in 3D on Blu ray. I mean, the hard part is already done, right? The movie was shot or converted to 3D before it ever hit theaters.
But then it comes out on Blu ray in the US and there's no 3D. Inevitably, there are 3D versions often available from other countries, but it's often a gamble whether they'll be region-free or even affordable.
A lot of this problem could also be resolved, I suppose, if the industry would just acknowledge that, in this day and age, region locking content is more effort than it's worth, since people shop and take in content globally anyhow.
Anyway, one star on this title until a 3D Blu ray release. Sorry, Ralph!

I had mixed feelings about the realse not being in 3D. On the one hand I agree that in cinemas it was 3D so home release should have had the option. However, also as someone who purchased the complete Disney classics collection, that set did have space for this film as well, and if this film had of been released in 3D, I’d have wanted to buy a standard blu ray to complete the classics collection and a Blu-ray 3D version as well. So in that regard I’m happy it’s not been. But only for this one film Disney if you are listening!
There is the mandatory cartoon lesson and message as well; the movie teaches children about the dangers of internet, that there is not only the joy of sharing silly viral videos among friends. But that there can be implications to vicious social media posts. Frankly such lectures are a bit more of a practical and original teachings than the more common cartoon themes about family values and cooperation. Moreover eventually these are also the scenes that move the heartstrings and that leave a lasting impression.
It’s a very funny movie, full of action but with a charming story line. Even more than its predecessor its filled with dazzling graphics and perspectives, that were done a lot of justice with the blu ray version we ordered. So we had a great evening as it managed to entertain all of our family with ages ranging from 5 to 47.

You could probably get into this easily if you've not seen the former, but familiarity with it will help you get more from this one.
If you've not seen it then: Wreck It Ralph is a character in an amusement arcade game, a place where all the characters in all the machines come to life in their own world when humans aren't looking. Friends with Vanellope, a girl from a car race game whom he helped last time around. This time, the former is feeling tired of the same old thing. Ralph's attempt to provide something new for her cause problems and threaten to destroy her arcade machine. A chance to save that leads them into the internet. And all that awaits out there.
But even if the machine is saved, their lives might change forever anyhow. Something Ralph will have to come to terms with...
Although, like any sequel, it lacks the shock of the new and the originality of the first film, there's still a lot of fun to be had here. Two strong lead characters who are well played and well written as well. It does a lot of fun things when they get to the internet, and there's always a lot going on in the background, where there's consistently excellent animation. It is one of those films that works on different levels and equally well for kids and grown ups.
Disney do manage to use all that they have the rights to really well here as well. With some highly entertaining cameos from various of their properties.
There is a central moral core to the whole thing, but it's never overstated.
But it's not a five star film, as it does feel as if the writing does rather play it a bit too safe at times, and that this never really cuts loose quite as much as it could. So you'll finish it with a smile on your face, but you won't be in hysterics.
It's time well spent watching it though, so it's a good four star movie. And do keep watching to the end of the credits, for a great extra scene in the middle of them that might resolve a question you might have, and a very fun one at the end.
Languages and subtitles on this dvd are:
Languages: English, Arabic, Italian.
Subtitles: English,. Arabic, Italian.
It's also English audio captioned.
As with all Disney DVDS these days, it begins with various trailers that you can skip via the next button on the dvd remote. And which turn up again in the sneak peeks section of the disc anyhow.
And it has no extras at all.
And of course it's just a 2d copy of the movie, but since 3d does nothing for me at all, that's fine by me.
Some bits may not be as suitable for younger viewers, as they play a GTA5 type game called "Slaughter Race" but actually there's no actual violence on-screen. It *is* a Disney movie after all.
For anyone else it's just a really great film, matching the first in its sentiment and entertainment.
Wholesome family entertainment!
