The Best Movie of 2018 (So Far), ‘Paddington 2’ Arrives on Blu-ray April 24th

Paddington 2

This is not a drill. One of the best reviewed movies of all time and easily one of the best movies of 2018, Paddington 2 will be available on Digital HD on March 27th before landing on Blu-ray this April 24th. It’s not often that I find myself invested in a film’s Rotten Tomatoes score, but that was the case with director Paul King‘s sensational sequel. With 189 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, Paddington 2 has an impressive 100% and it’s an entirely accurate score. While I often find obsessing over Rotten Tomatoes scores absurd, I was ready to fight anyone who dared to besmirch the cinematic perfection of Paddington 2. Those close to me know that this film has greatly affected me and many have worried that I’m dangerously close to starting a cult around the charming bear from Darkest Peru.

Ben Whishaw provides the voice for the immigrant bear as he did in the first film and it continues his kindhearted misadventures while living with the Brown family (the parents played by Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins and Hugh Bonneville). This time around, director Paul King and his co-writer Simon Farnaby take Paddington to his most trying moment yet when his neighbor, the dashing actor Phoenix Buchanan (Hugh Grant), frames the eponymous bear for a crime he didn’t commit. In prison, Paddington befriends the hardened criminal Knuckles McGinty (Brendan Gleeson) and leads by an example of pure heart and kindness that affects everyone he comes in contact with.

Paddington 2 is a triumph on every level of its being. There’s a wit to the dialogue that entertains adults and children. The visual comedy of the tiny little bear is in the style of the classic silent comedians. Amazingly, I consider that computer generated bear to be the heir apparent to Charlie Chaplin‘s warm-hearted comedic stylings. Most importantly, Paddington is a character of big heart and kindness, and he makes everyone better around him through his actions. “If you’re kind and polite, the world will be right,” Paddington proclaims in the sequel. When the world outside seems chaotic and cruel, the kindness at the heart of Paddington 2 is a much needed respite. I can’t wait for April 24th (only because I prefer physical media to digital) to come so I can watch this movie over and over and feel the warmth of this utterly delightful masterpiece.

The special features on the Blu-ray of Paddington 2:

  • Paddington: The Bear Truth

  • How to Make A Marmalade Sandwich

  • Music Video with Phoenix Buchanan

  • The Magical Mystery of Paddington’s Pop-Up Book

  • The Browns and Paddington: The Special Bond
