Picked up the Blu-Ray yesterday and watched it again. Simply a great film.

Don't forget to go into the extras on the movie disc. There are a couple of Pixar shorts in there that are quite funny.

Think I'll pass. Haven't watched a Pixar since The Incredibles. Seems like that's where they reached their zenith.

Actually I saw that as a low point.

WALL*E is the #1 DVD on Amazon for over a week now, and the Blu Ray has been #3 of ALL the DVD titles there. This one may set records.

I agree with Chris that this is simply a great flick - on Blu Ray - its phenominal.

Went to Target to pick up the Blu-Ray yesterday and they were sold out! Plenty of SD DVDs on the shelf though. Yeah, Blu-Ray's dead. Really.

I really like those titles that include the SD DVD with the Blu-ray disk. If more titles would come out like that in the coming year, I would definitely get a blu-ray player.
I mean, I probably will anyway, but that would make the transition a lead pipe cinch.

Got WALL*E Blu-Ray in on Monday from Amazon. Planning on surprising the kids with it on Christmas morning. They love WALL*E. My daughter even made TURK*E for her 3rd grade project. She used her brother's WALL*E robot as a guide to disguise a turkey to keep him from being eaten. :D http://richardbracki...585_ThTub-M.jpg

This Blu-Ray now surpasses that rat movie as the best looking disc in my collection, animation or otherwise. Simply fantastic. The "digital copy" file included on the three-disc set is also kind of neat.

Although some folks tend to say it starts "slow", I think that first 22 minutes of the movie without a single word of dialog is perhaps some of the best cinema created in modern times. IMO, a great movie well worth owning on BD.

I agree that this is the new standard by which others will be measured (for now).

Drat....bought and viewed the Blu Ray version - fantastic.

The problem...now I have to order 2 more copies because my grandson and another relative wants their own copy too..... :D

Does anyone know the difference between the 2 disc and 3 disc BluRay versions?

The 3 disc has a digital copy version so you can watch it on a computer or personal media player. That's usually the version I buy but in this case because it's so beautiful on BD I didn't bother, I won't watch it on an iPod.

Thanks! I just told Mrs. Smiddy to go pick it up at BB, they are giving away a game cube (not the electronic game, like a Rubik's Cude) for the Smiddelette's for Christmas.
