The film is cute and fun. The message is friendship and family with a hint at diversity. Jim Parsons makes an excellent voice as I envision his character on "The Big Bang Theory." Boov change color based on their emotions. I liked it, even if your kid did not.
“Home” 3D arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 MVC @ 41Mbps 1080p 1.85:1 encode. The video really benefited from the high bit-rate, showing off vibrant colours and pristine razor-sharp images. There is solid depth with nice sense of spacing. Blacks are inky. The images are virtually the same between 3D and 2D, although if you have a 3D set, the 3D version is more fun and preferred. (5/5)
“Home” 2D arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC @ 28Mbps 1080p 1.85:1 encode. All the good qualities in the description above applies to 2D. (5/5)
“Home” arrives onto blu-ray with DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio lossless track. The outstanding aspect is the choice of voice characters, especially Jim Parsons as “Oh”. Of course having Rihanna as “Tip” (plus her many songs, like “Only Girl (In the World)”, “Dancing in the Dark” plus “Red Balloon” by Charlie XCX). Other stand-outs are Steve Martin as “Captain Smek” and Jennifer Lopez as “Lucy”. Dialogue was clear. The various sound effects are well done. My only criticism is that the volume presented was a little too low. If you turn up the volume (of course with permission from your other better-half, who always complained that it’s too loud anyway), it will be perfect. (4.5/5)
1 “Home” has an estimated budget of $135 million, but has a worldwide gross of $387 million, but much less than the top-grossing animated feature of 2015 “Minions” at $965 million, followed by “Inside Out” at $677 million.
2 The Jennifer Lopez title track "Feel The Light" opens with the familiar chords from Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), used in that film to communicate with the aliens.Read more ›
This film was enjoyable (considering we 'earthlings' are relocated with out consideration by an wasteful aliens of another planet), but not sure if the movie has 'replay' quality ...although, some kids may disagree! ;-) Nothing very offensive.
Jim Parsons does a great (vocal) job of the character ...a major plus for this film (again considering its sub-text/plot). I mention the sub-text of 'relocating', or holding captive a species due to your inability to manage your own affairs is hard to explain to a child (who may care to ask). ;-)
But, this is only an animated film ;-) But its not as thoughtful or deep as Pixar's 'Inside Out' or 'Toy Story' ...again, explain 'relocating' to a young child. Being mindful of that sub-text ...perhaps a film for children above 6 or 7 yrs.
Younger may find this sub-text (and Rihanna's character hiding from these aliens) troubling.
This is one you will want to watch again and again, and is worth adding to your collection.
Je lui donnerais donc trois étoiles, mais je lui en retire une autre pour l’horrible idée de faire parler le petit extra-terrestre comme un attardé. Sur papier, ça pouvait sembler mignon et originale, mais ça ne fait que taper sur les nerfs.

Good family fun. Animation has come a long way from the flat 2D models and now it looks 3D. Hilarious alien trying to fit in.Published 4 months ago by JoeJ
