Disney Cars (2006)

Imagine my surprise tonight when I go to Walmart and see it just sitting there. It wasn't even in the main place where they have the HD media but instead on a little end rack.

An obvious mistake...but I grabbed it!

I can't believe I got the disc this early!

So check your local Walmart as they might've broken street date as well. It rang out no problem.

Disc opens with a warning about how it may take a couple minutes to load depending on your player/firmware.

Disc starts with two theatre trailers

One for Enchanted
The other for Wall E

Blu-Ray trailers for

Meet the Robinsons
Ratatouille

Ok off to watch the movie. I'll report back afterwards!

One question. Was this one of the most incredible looking things you've ever seen, or do you have poor equipment? Just kidding. Based on just the little snippets I've seen on other discs, I expect this thing to look incredible. And the opening of the movie with the engine revving inside the truck should also be great, with a good sound system. Can't wait to get this one.

I honestly believe 100000% that 'Cars' on Blu-ray is going to put every other title on the market to shame! The standard definition DVD looks like a Blu-ray when it isn't upscaled!!! I've told this to so many people who still refuse to watch the movie because it sounds like it's "such a kiddie concept". When, in reality, it has something for every age group. Think of it this way... on the small chance that you don't enjoy the film, at least you will have THE REFERENCE DISC for the next year. I would put money on this fact!!!

Yeah, the Walmart here in Mankato, MN had Hostel part 1 and 2 a week and a half early. I guess their people don't pay attention to release dates.

I live in Toledo, Ohio. The Walmart that had it early was the Spring Meadows Walmart in case anyone lives here. They had about 3 copies out after I bought mine.

Holy shit the image quality. The opening race is probably the best thing I've seen on Blu-Ray yet. So many colors, all sharp and popping. That, my friends, is reference quality. I couldn't believe just how amazing that scene looked. Anyone who sees that scene on Blu-Ray will be hooked for life. I am tempted to rewatch that part of the movie just for how amazing it looked.

There is digital noise in the sky during the flash backs of Radiator Springs. Aside from that the image quality is incredible.

Sound quality is good bu I don't want to give out any rating. My sound system is pretty basic but it sounded great to me. Im sure once the audiophiles get a hold of this they'll be able to give it a proper rating. It sounded really good to me though.

Cars - this my favorite Pixar movie, anybody that loves automobiles and racing will just love this movie. I always play this movie when I have a crappy day, never get sick of it.

One question is it all region.

How do I check that? I live in America and use an American PS3 to play Blu-Rays.

Toledo huh? I used to fly in and out of there a lot. Unfortunately it is too far away for me now! Oh well, guess I will just have to wait until Tuesday. *sigh*
