This Week's DVD/Blu-ray Choice - 21st June

The lack of new releases on the shelves this week should emphasise the one which truly deserves recognition which, in my opinion, stands as one of the best films this year.

My choice this week is The Princess and the Frog.

Disney's return to hand-drawn animation proves successful with the critically acclaimed feature, focusing on one girl's lifelong dream to own a restaurant in New Orleans. Still, nothing is as simple as it seems as the evil Dr. Facilier turns the pompous Prince Naveen into a frog. Attempting to relinquish him from his curse, Tiana goes by the classic fairytale and kisses the prince, unwillingly turning herself into a frog also. The film is full of soulful tracks, all fused with a deeply heartwarming story. A blu-ray purchase is an absolute must due to Disney's track record for pitch-perfect audio and visual -- and the blu-ray/DVD combo never goes a-miss.
