The movie Cars is tried and true...cannot go wrong with this DVD! It is a gift for my grandson who loves this movie. So will make him a happy boy to have his own! With no commercials to run out of it while watching.
\"Cars\" is the story of what happens when a big city race car gets stuck in a small town. Entertaining for children and adults alike. Adults will also have fun spotting the celebrity cameo voices like 'Click & Clack\", Darrel Waltrip, Bob Costas, and many more. And gearheads will appreciate that many of the characters in Cars are modelled after real vehicles like Porshe, VW bus, Jeep, GMC wrecker, Hudson, etc...\n\nUnfortunately the 'deleted scenes' aren't computer generated or even animated, but instead are in 'storyboard' format (i.e. roughly skeched still pictures)\n\nThe Car Finder game is kinda fun. The game plays the movie and you try to find specific cars in a scene. The ones you find you can go back and get brief bios of each. Even the ones that were only on screen a few seconds have names and backstories.\n\nThe picture seems to only be a little better than the DVD version (when the DVD version is upscaled) so if you already own the Cars DVD, you may want to think twice about getting the Blu-ray (or at least wait until the Blu-ray is on sale). If you don't already own it, you have no excuse! :-)
Cool Hand Luke had a cast of great actors including Paul Newman, George Kennedy, and Strother Martin. Martin taunted Newman with the legendary line, \"what we've got here is...failure to communicate.\" It is hard to believe that both Newman and Martin have passed away. However, we can still enjoy their steller performances in Cool Hand Luke.\n\nMy only negative comment is the blu-ray picture quality could have been better. However, I still recommend the film.

What our shoppers say:
For every Earnhardt fan
This is a compelling history of one of NASCAR's brightest stars who helped it gain the popularity it has today. The intimidator ruled for way too short a time and died in a race in which his son was running. His untimely death led to safety devices which insure no one should ever have that fate again. Great piece of work to show, respect, and honor the man.
Aside from being one of the best films ever made, this deal has a regular DVD and a Blu-ray! That made it a wonderful way for me to have it on Blu-ray and for me to let Mom have it on DVD(she doesn't have a Blu-ray player or it would have been the other way around). She's thrilled, I'm thrilled, it doesn't get any better than that!
For some reason, they never show this great mid-70s disaster flick on tv. So, I went hunting for it and found it here! McQueen and Newman were never better, imho. Had not seen the flick in years and let me tell you, it is sterling in Blu-Ray. Thanks for the availability Wal-Mart!
Newman is better than usual; Gleason, as the slit-mouthed, beady-eyed Minnesota Fats, darts among the shabby little pool sharks like an improbably agile and natty whale; and Gambler Scott looks as though he could sell hot-air heat to the devil.
Absence of Malice does not invalidate All the President's Men. But with entertainment values -- and a moral sense -- every bit as high as that film's, it observes that there is an underside to journalistic gallantry.
