Wakey wakey, Bladerunner! It’s time to FREAK-OUT over Pixar’s Brave, the meh-fest that was Prometheus, the return of Stephanie Brown (kinda), a whole mess of AvX, and a look back at the books that’ve pissed us off this summer! We’re even sober! Get your listen on before some a-hole tells you not to see Brave (because they are wrong. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG.)

Cars 2 on Blu-ray

Although far different in tone and story than the first film (which I love to no end) Cars 2 moves from themes of small town life to take its characters overseas for the World Grand Prix. And the most unlikely one of the bunch will find himself in the middle of a spy adventure. For more on the film check my the original review.

The movie works as well on DVD and Blu-ray as it did in the theaters. The look of the World Grand Prix is terrific and the spy story (even if it does center around one of my least favorite characters) provides some great moments.

The two-disc set includes Blu-ray and DVD copies of the film, commentary by director John Lasseter, and a pair of animated shorts, “Hawaiian Vacation” and “Air Mater.” The five-disc set also includes a 3D disc, digital download, and a few extra features including deleted scenes, documentaries, and a world tour exploring the various cities used in the film.

Let me get this out of the way first, for those who might not know, I absolutely loved Cars. How much? Enough for the Pixar film to top my Best Movies of 2006 list. I know some who would argue that it the original Cars isn’t among Pixar’s best. They’re wrong. Very, very wrong.
