4-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack (PG)

Movie: 4 out of 4 stars

Disc: 4 out of 4 stars

Disney puts another irresistible Blu-ray carrot in-front of DVD die-hards with this 4-disc combo pack that includes both formats and the digital copy option. This package would be great for any movie, but "Up," which has all but won next year's Best Animated Picture Oscar, makes this an impossible-to-refuse offer. The extras eclipse the running time of the near-perfect film itself, which actually works better in 2-D than the theatrical 3-D. If every studio followed Pixar's lead, the movie industry as a whole would never lose a single dime on anything it ever released.

Technical specs: Aspect ratio: Widescreen (1.78:1), audio: English (DTS 5.1), French and Spanish (Dolby Digital 5.1), subtitles: French and Spanish.

Special features include:

* Cine-Explore commentary

* Two theatrical shorts

* Making-of featurette

* Seven documentaries

* Alternate scenes

* Montage

(Disney/Pixar, $45.99)
