5.0 out of 5 stars An all-around great blu-ray release Nov. 8 2008
By C. Denison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Fido is released on blu-ray here in Canada by TVA Films. It features a great 5.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtrack (also includes a dolby digital 5.1 track and a french 2.0 dolby track). The video presentation is excellent as well. Please note, that DNR was applied to this film to get rid of the grain. However, detail is still sharp and colours look great. I was VERY impressed with this transfer.

Special features include a short film by the film's director, art galleries, a commentary track with the director, producer, and Carrie-Anne Moss, and also a set of deleted scenes with commentary.

Feature run time is 92 minutes.
Original aspect ratio of 2.35:1
On the back it says this is a region A disc.

****One thing to point out is that this release has been discontinued by TVA. Hopefully one day it will get re-released by TVA or some other distributer****

5.0 out of 5 stars review of the gorgeous Blu ray release of fido Feb. 12 2014
By jesse
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is by far a very funny, unique. Movie about a boy & his pet zombie. But in reality it is a lost love between a boy & his father. the cinematographyis absolutely gorgeous in this Blu ray release. I could not wait when I finally found the Blu ray version of fido, & it did not disappoint. Hats off to the film crew & decoraters. They nailed all the way down to the zomcom logos on the cars. If your looking for the perfect movie to just make you smile & feel warm inside & forget about everyday life. This is it. ( even if you can only escape for a bit. )

3.0 out of 5 stars Good movie. Not so good picture quality Sept. 30 2009
By Cesar
This is a good movie to watch in Blu Ray. The recreation of the postcard american suburbs of the 50's is completed with great colors that look much more alive in Blu Ray.

The great problem is that Sony couldn't leave the image alone. When will studios understand that if you apply noise reduction, they're only sacrifycing one of the reasons why the blu ray exists, that is, more detail?

I know, noise reduction is intended to eliminate grain. Now, grain is not the most unnatural thing in a movie. There always has been there. Why try to eliminate one of the historic characteristics of film?

As a result, the image has been upgraded from a normal dvd, and colors are vibrant. But just don't look too close for the little details, because they have been erased.

The movie itself deserves 4 stars. Very entertaining, funny (black humor, that is) and even tender. And don't believe whatever comparison people are making with "Shaun of the dead" because they're very different in approach.

Technical aspects:

LANGUAGES: ENGLISH (Dolby True HD 5.1. and Dolby Digital 5.1) and FRENCH (Dolby Digital 2.0)
SUBTITLES: None (not even french!)
EXTRAS: Audio Commentary with director, producer and actress - Art Galleries - Deleted scenes with commentary - "Night of the living" short -
The Blu Ray is REGION "A" locked.

3.0 out of 5 stars Freaky Fido Sept. 21 2012
By laleduc
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I heard about this movie when it first came out, but never got a chance to see it. Finally got to and now want to watch it for all the little things I missed first time round. Gets you thinking (scary for a comedy)while laughing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Dead (Truly Unique) Aug. 4 2008
Every so often a movie comes along in a particular genre and does things "outside the norm."

Fido is such a movie.

Yes, it's about zombies. Yes, it's about gut-munching. Yes, it's about survival in a post-apocalyptic world.

But that's where the similarities end compared to other end-of-the-world zombie flicks.

This movie is more like a cross between Pleasantville and Night of the Living Dead, with a little bit of humor thrown in there as well.

After a zombie epidemic took over most of the world, a lone scientist invented a collar to control the undead and, through the ventures of the company Zomcom, was able to transform these mindless and hungry monsters into humanity's slaves, turning them into butlers, house aids and gardeners.

Enter the Robinson family, the only family in the '50s without a zombie. However, things change when the people-pleasing mom, Helen Robinson (Carrie-Anne Moss), gets Fido, a lovable zombie with life and warmth.

Fido quickly becomes best friends with Timmy, Helen's son, but one day when the collar goes on the fritz and Fido eats the neighbor, everything changes, a cover-up ensues and it's up to the Robinson family to hide Fido from those who would want to take him away and kill him (which is something that Daddy Robinson would love to see).

This isn't your standard zombie movie. Far from it. It has heart, and though a comedy, it's not slapstick or silly. Just regular funny moments. Billy Connolly as Fido is charming, lovable, fun. You genuinely care for the poor dead guy. You smile with joy when he's happy. Your heart goes out to him when he's sad. You even side with him when he gets mad and takes out his uncontrollable hunger on unsuspecting victims.

The story is original.

This is a great movie, but I still have not received it. It was supposed to be an anniversary present for my husband, so I'm sure he would have LOVED it, but he doesn't have it.
