    • As with Universal's release of Minions in 3D, and indeed its earlier releases of the Despicable Me movies on Ultra HD Blu-ray, the only extras on the actual Ultra HD Blu-ray disc itself are the 3 mini-movies...

    • Minions released on Blu-ray in late 2015 (alongside a 3D disc), mere months before the UHD format finally arrived on the marketplace. Universal has been slowly, but not exactly steadily, going back and...

    • Minions isn't the best animated film out there, but it'll delight the kids. It's not very substitutive and it may grate on adult nerves after a while, but there's no mistaking its inherent charm and simplicity....
