Rio (Blu-ray) – Rio could be the animated film to beat come award season. It’s got a great story, an excellent voice cast (which includes Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, and Leslie Mann), and the animation is beautiful. It’s also got a few catchy musical numbers that didn’t drive me mad. Overall it’s a fun, colourful film that I’ve watched and enjoyed with my family numerous times without getting tired of. I highly recommend adding it to your collection especially if you have kids in the house. The Blu-ray release is definitely the way to go with Rio as the movie looks amazing in high-def and the 5.1 DTS-HD sound mix is stunning. Special features include deleted scenes, making-of featurettes, music videos, and more. A regular DVD and digital copy of the film are also included. Film **** Blu-ray **** (4 out of 5 stars).
