My latest MSN DVD column is up, in which I try to put my disappointment with “Toy Story 3” in the proper context. Mainly, though, I goggle at the amazing quality of the movie’s Blu-ray presentation, and the supplemental package Disney and Pixar have built around it, which is really spectacular.
It’s almost a given that anything with “Pixar” on it will top my year-end DVD list, but there’s a reason for that. Pixar (in conjunction with Disney) reliably produces amazing discs. And the advent of Blu-ray has encouraged them to be more creative with things like interactivity and storage capacity. Even if I see “Toy Story 3” as more brand extension than worthy sequel, it’s still great to see it given the same care and respect as one of the genuine classics.
Your mileage may vary, of course.
