Pixar Short Films Collection: Vol. 1

 (1984-2006)

Pixar Short Films Collection: Vol. 1 Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A collection of 13 Pixar shorts: The Adventures of Andre & Wally B, Luxo Jr., Red's Dream, Tin Toy, Knick Knack, Geri's Game, For the Birds, Mike's New Car, Boundin', Jack-Jack Attack, Mater and the Ghost Light, One Man Band, and Lifted.

For more about Pixar Short Films Collection: Vol. 1 and the Pixar Short Films Collection: Vol. 1 Blu-ray release, see Pixar Short Films Collection: Vol. 1 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.



Pixar Short Films Collection: Vol. 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

This set does not disappoint in terms of picture quality. It can easily function as a "snippet" of demo material to show off Blu-ray's capabilities. 9 of the 13 shorts are simply gorgeous, and the detail is utterly beguiling. The individually moving feathers in For the Birds, or the minute floating bits of debris in Lifted, for example, show a rare attention to detail for which Pixar is renown. Averaging 25 mbps, the AVC encode is utilized to great effect to make these shorts shine.

Four of the shorts, Pixar's earliest from the 1980s, may disappoint due to their apparently less-than-pristine presentation. One must remember, however, that André, Luxo Jr., Red's Dream,, and Tin Toy were produced during computer animation's very infancy, and rendered at a relatively low resolution in comparison to today's slick CG features. These shorts may have been stored on analog devices, additionally. Every single one of the latter shorts boast the same bitrates as those of the subsequent shorts from the mid-90s and onward, though in the case of this early work, there just wasn't much there to "spruce up" in the first place. The exception to these 80s shorts is 1989's Knick Knack, which pops off the screen like the best of Pixar's contemporary work, but this is due to the studio re-rendering the short for release with 2003's Finding Nemo. The cartoony short had featured two well-endowed female figures, who subsequently underwent breast reduction in order to avoid any outcry from overly-sensitive "family" audiences.

In terms of aspect ratio, all shorts are presented in their original, intended composition. This includes direct-to-video short Mike's New Car, which was produced at 4:3 due to the often small monitors that it debuted on. With its light, cartoony feel, the short even seems reminiscent of old Academy ratio Merrie Melodies, or the like.


Pixar Short Films Collection: Vol. 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Keeping pace with the release's excellent video, Pixar Shorts Volume I boasts impressive PCM uncompressed 5.1 audio. Since these shorts often utilize music and sound design for - as an example - comedic effect, the uncompressed audio makes a world of difference. The unofficial litmus test for just how convincing said high definition option is to the ears, the twittering For the Birds quite thoroughly captivated this reviewer's cat!
In addition, Pixar's latest shorts One Man Band and Lifted are completely dialogue-free, and rely on music and sound design, respectively, to tell their stories and punchline their humor. The included PCM track allows the shorts to be realized to full effect.

Standard definition audio included on this Blu-ray release are Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes each of English, Spanish, and French. The disc also includes the option of selecting your menu and display languages upon initial playback. The English commentary tracks have been subtitled in Spanish and French, and even a select few shorts (i.e. Boundin' and For the Birds) alter their title cards to the relevant language.
