Family animation featuring the voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan and Mr T. Flint Lockwood (Hader) is a fairly unsuccessful amateur scientist who appears to have developed a device that will bring an end to world hunger. Unfortunately his invention, which causes food to rain out of the sky, ends up causing more trouble than good as his town is flooded with more food than people know what to do with. Flint and weather girl Sam (Faris) must try and figure out what has gone wrong and save their town from disaster.
The world of animated movies, you might think, revolves purely around what Disney-Pixar and DreamWorks are up to. But then along came Sony with Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and shook things up. For here is one of the most charming, imaginative animated films of 2009, and it looks sensational in high definition.
Its story is actually quite slight, and arguably the film’s biggest weakness is that it stretches it a little too thin. Based on the book by Judi and Ron Barrett, the charming story is of a young inventor by the name of Flint, whose track record leaves plenty to be desired. Yet one day, he comes up with a machine that manages to, via a series of circumstances, make it rain food. That’s cheeseburgers one day, drumsticks the next, cakes on another, that sort of thing. Inevitably, this attracts the attention of the world, and inevitably, problems start to arise.
In spite of its slight problems, however, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs is a bright, vibrant, colourful triumph. Bless with a superb voice cast and some sparkling visuals, the film has broad family appeal, and plenty of rewatch value. Plus, as you might hope, its broad colour palette looks simply sumptuous in high definition. It’s a cavalcade of striking visuals, superbly transferred to 1080p. Matched up to a very active surround-sound track, the combination of terrific main feature and equally strong transfer make Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs one of the very family Blu-rays on the market. And the likes of Disney and DreamWorks? There’s very much a new competitor in town… --Simon BrewSee all Product Description

For those who don't know (I didn't!) this film is based on a popular children's book from the late 70s, and is about (in a nutshell) a young scientist who is desperate to invent something that will improve everyone's life and will make his somewhat old-fashioned father proud. His invention? A machine that can turn rain into food, which although seems great at first look, inevitably causes huge problems.
First of all, this film has an absolutely brilliant voice cast including Bill Hader, Anna Faris and James Caan, and all of these actors have been cast perfectly. It also has a fantastic supporting cast of characters, my favourites being Steve the monkey, voiced by Neil Patrick Harris and Officer Earl Devereaux, voiced by none other than Mr T. The little asides from these characters had me in stitches throughout the film, and the animation is bright, imaginative and beautiful.
Whilst I've read some reviews by people complaining about "plot holes" and the like, the fact is, this is animation and is a film about raining food(!) so I think it is wise to suspend relief with this film and simply enjoy. It is hugely funny, is packed full of endearing and hilarious characters, and ends beautifully. I can see myself watching this one over and over again!
It's suck a brilliant film!
Just 1 problem:
Some parts can make you feel ever so slightly sick!
I can tell you that I have just finished watching this in glorious 3D and it is the business.
Leaving the story behind I can say that the 3D experience is every bit as good as the cinema, if not better as I can sit at home with a beer and watch this one with the family.
I have tested this using the Samsung syncmaster 2233 3d lcd and the Acer H5360 projector, using the new and updated version of Cyberlink Powerdvd 10 installed on a Windows 7 pc with the nVidia 3D transmitter and glasses.
The Samsung has the same ghosting issues that all 3D LCD seems to have but the Acer H5360 projector was fantastic, no ghosting just amazing pop out imagery !
I have also tested this film in 3D with an Optoma HD67 with drivers acquired from the nVidia forums and it too is flawless in 3D playback.
If you have the kit for 3D gaming on the PC then all you need is the Powerdvd 10 software and today's latest update from their website and you are good for Bluray 3D. Also the Powerdvd software will convert ALL of your 2D media into 3D on the fly.
Hope this is a bit more informative than 'my Gran loved this film etc etc etc'.
It took nearly three years to bring 2009's "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs" to the big screen - and after watching 86 minutes of its digitally realized anarchic genius - I can safely say it was money well spent. Not only is Columbia/Sony Animation Pictures baby a visually sumptuous watch - it's properly funny for its entire duration, genuinely touching when it needs to be and endlessly inventive in both character and dialogue. It also boasts something rarer than a conscience in the UKIP party - a moral centre that's not stylized schlock - but a story that's loaded with pressing observations about avarice in our increasingly chubby consumerist society. All this and it's effortless cool too. The audience was both smiling and applauding when the credits rolled in our cinema.
Flint Lockwood (voiced to perfection by Bill Hader) is a nerdy school kid - always inflicting his scatological inventions on his parents, his classmates and the good townsfolk of Swallow Falls - a tiny island situated on the map beneath the 'A' on Atlantic. Swallow Falls is the Sardine Capitol of the World - a town that lives on and off the shiny oily silver mites - and Flint's Dad (of Tim's Sardine Bait & Tackle Shop) is proud of it. Flint's father is hard working for sure but since Mom died 10 years back has become safe and unadventurous and prone to mumbling fish metaphors that don't make any sense (a stunning turn by James Caan).Read more ›
