    • Ferdinand is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with a 2160p transfer in 2.39:1. Despite being finished at "only" a 2K DI, this 4K presentation shows rather significant...

    • I gave top marks to the 1080p Blu-ray version's nice sounding DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track, and the Dolby Atmos track on this 4K UHD disc simply takes that excellence and (literally in some cases) elevates...

    • Munro Leaf's 1936 opus The Story of Ferdinand was a brief children's book focusing on self expression. It had a similarly short animated adaptation in 1938 by none other than Walt Disney, but now the Blue...

    • Man, you gotta love what a good Dolby Atmos mix can bring to a movie. I was already pretty damn keen on the DTS-HD MA 7.1 track included on the Blu-ray, and truth be told if that had been ported over here,...

    • As with most bonus feature packages cobbled together for kids flicks these days, the one brought together for Ferdinand may have a number of things to look at, but they hardly go into any great depth,...

    • I do not envy the task of adapting a classic children's book. The Story of Ferdinand by Muno Leaf and Robert Lawson is a simple story about a bull who wants nothing more than to sit on a hill under a tree...

    • If you're going into Ferdinand expecting a literal and faithful recreation of a children's book classic, you're likely to be a little disappointed. I was - at first. But then I got into the fun of the...
