FlippedWarner Bros. (Blu-ray)
When second-graders Bryce and Juli first meet, Juli knows it's love. Bryce isn't so sure. In the days and years ahead, Bryce does all he can to keep his wannabe girlfriend at arm's length - and the smart, independent-minded Juli continues to give him the benefit of the doubt. This tender coming-of-age romantic comedy from director Rob Reiner takes the pair from grade school to junior high, through triumph and disaster, family drama and first love, as they make discoveries that will define who they are - and who they are to each other.
Warner serves up a beautiful presentation for this heartwarming tale of young love and drama. Colors are fantastic with striking hues and great balance. Fine detail is also strong with great rendition in close ups and longer shots. Dimensionality and depth are also first rate. The DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack does a great job with ambience with subtle cues from the surrounds and nice imaging from the main channels. Dynamic range is decent, but this isn’t a robust soundtrack.
Extras include a DVD copy of the film as well as a digital copy for your portable device. You also get some themed features that look at the subject matter of the film, some fun facts on chickens and science projects plus some other fun stuff.
This is a great coming of age film that gives you two perspectives on growing up. The cast is charming and the presentation is a winner. This would be a great one for family night!
