Loved the movie. The 3D is worth the money but the disc isn't listed correctly. It is Region B. Not Region Free.

Whilst I shalln't go into a great deal of depth regarding the actual film (all other reviews have focused on this in great depth so please refer to those!) I'll simply tell you it's more of that Pixar brilliance you come to expect from the guys with the little lamp!

I wanted to focus on one tiny aspect of this Blu-Ray which very few have mentioned (perhaps they don't know it's there!) and that is the calibration tool provided on this disk! Now, for the technophobes out there when you receive your HDTV it's all shiny and nice and the picture quality is most probably good. But in order to get the very most out of your Blu-Ray films and HD Games you need to play around with some of the more in-depth settings in your TV's menu. This can be confusing if you've never done it before however included in the special features of this disk is an easy to follow guide on how to do this! Spend 5 minutes tweaking the settings as you're told to by the disk and your viewing experience (Visual & Audio) will be GREATLY improved!

I think that this alone is a great reason to buy this blu-ray as some calibration disks can cost crazy amounts! So at the very least rent this blu-ray!

Once again, great film but a brilliant little tool that will change the way you view all of your films!

Perhaps the best animated film of all time, well deserving of many repeat viewings. Much enhanced by 3D. However--disc was described as all region, and in fact turned out to be Region B locked, and not viewable with most US players. Fortunately I have access to an all region player, so was not a problem, but this misinformation must be corrected on your site!

This was the best family film I saw all year in 2007. What seems at first a simple story about a rat who wants to cook, turns out in fact to be something more, deeper and more subtle. It was funny, charming, and also very touching. The animation was truly stunning and both my husband and children aged 5 and 8 loved it. Wonderful.

This review is for Sarah Sutton (Nyssa in 'Doctor Who'), as this is one of her favourite films.

"In many ways, the work of a critic is easy." That's how Anton Ego began his review in the film. But I'm not going to write my review like that.

'Ratatouille' is a great film! I enjoyed watching this film for Christmas, 2013. It's the eighth Disney/Pixar film since 'Toy Story'. It's really clever and I have to say is one of the most sophisticated films Pixar have made. This is a comedy that appeals to both children and adults.

The film was both written and directed by Brad Bird who previously directed 'The Incredibles'. 'Ratatouille' is set in Paris, France. It feels very French and makes you want to go there. The film has human characters and it also has rats.

The story concerns one rat called Remy. Being a rat 'means life is hard'. But Remy has this highly acute sense of smell and prefers really good food instead of rats normally eat - 'garbage'. He knows how to cook and wants to be a French chef in one of France's restaurants.

Remy's a keen devotee of one of France's most famous restaurant chefs called Gusteau and loves reading his cookbook recipes. He speaks to Gusteau who appears to him as a figment of his imagination when he's lost his family of rats and is on his own in Paris.

Remy has an older brother named Emile. Emile is a rat who loves eating and is easily impressed by his younger brother's sense of smell. He's surprised by what Remy can do.

I really thought I'd hate this film when it came out; it looked to be just another piece of hyperbolic cartoon-animal silliness as is the trend these days. Happily though, the film was much more than this.

The premise is fairly simple: there is a rat, Remy, with refined gustatory senses who wants to cook and taste exquisite food rather than the muck his fellows eat. To this end, he contrives to enter a once reputable restaurant in Paris, prompted by the ghost(/figment of Remy's imagination) of the famous chef Gusteau (whom Remy deeply admires), who used to own that restaurant; and, after some complications, Remy ends up secretly showing the new (and inept) chef Linguini how to cook inspirational food once again.

The villains of the film are the bad-tempered, money pinching 'Skinner' (the present head of the restaurant), contemptuous of Linguini and jealous of his apparent culinary success; and the cold, opprobrious critic 'Ego' responsible for the restaurant's recent decline. Both are dealt with in quite different ways, but we find a sort of justificatory raison d'etre for the worse villain who in the end is 'not so bad'.

Ratatouille is engaging because of the criss-crossing of narrative threads: both Remy and Linguini have their own separate concerns as well as sharing in each others, but as the climax approaches, both sets of concerns touchingly (if a little predictably) resolve into the same aim.

However, a dominant 'strand' of the film is that talent can be found in any section of society (including rats!) and that it is not pretentiousness in fine cuisine that wins the day, but genuine and unaffected quality.
