Why Don’t You Own ‘Paddington 2’ on Blu-ray Yet?

Paddington 2 Blu-ray

Is something wrong? I just don’t get it. Perhaps we need to have a nice little chat in order to straighten everything out. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why you haven’t bought Paddington 2 on Blu-ray or Digital HD yet. I mean, we all like nice things and there’s just about nothing nice than that marmalade loving bear.

It’s easier for me to understand how you might’ve let Paddington 2 slip by you while it was in theaters. After all, it was released in mid-January after the distribution rights were shuffled about shortly before its release with Warner Bros. rescuing the film from the impending distribution purgatory it would’ve fallen into had it remained with the Weinstein Company. Sure, it was all Film Twitter could talk about and boasts a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, but Warner Bros. only had a brief time to build up buzz for director Paul King’s piece of cinematic perfection and January is rarely a time when new movies are hits. So we’ll let bygones be bygones.

Now, however, you’re all out of excuses. Paddington 2 and every wondrous minute of joy contained within is now available on all home video platforms and it’s well past time that you dive into this cinematic masterwork.

My friends and family have heard my endless preaching about this magnificent film, and many wonder if I’ll ever shut up about the wonders of Paddington and its sequel. The answer is simple: No, I’ll never shut up about Paddington or Paddington 2. We’re living in trying times and the news is dominated with stories of doom and gloom. People don’t trust each other as snark and cynicism become default settings for most people. And yet, for at least an hour and forty minutes, we can feel as right as rain as Paddington (voiced with perfection by Ben Whishaw) brings out the best in everyone he meets as he leads by kind and polite example.

Watching Paddington 2 inspires one to be a better person. Paddington always finds the best in people no matter who they are, and because the little bear in a red hat and duffle coat finds the saving grace of everyone he elevates their being to fulfill their potential. Even when wrongfully imprisoned, Paddington’s outlook and attitude brings forth the warmth of even the most hardened criminal, revamping the dank prison into a more tolerable and forgiving environment.

Paul King imbibes a classical style to his sequel, one that invokes the memory of Charlie Chaplin as Paddington haphazardly attempts to work at a barbershop or wash windows. Also like the silent mastery of Chaplin, Paddington 2 features a resonant emotional core with an ending just as moving and memorable as those final moments of Chaplin’s City Lights. There’s a purity to the film that is rare, a heart that’s immensely full of love and wit that never devolves towards mean-spiritedness nor cynicism. Few movies contain the emotional crescendo that brings forth joyous waterworks, but City Lights and Paddington 2 have that in common. They get me bawling each and every time. I know what’s coming and it hits me anyway. They’re films that represent the wonder of movies and, as Roger Ebert said, how they’re a machine that generates empathy.

Paddington 2 is such a special movie that I’m basically on the verge of starting cult that revolves around that magnificent bear. Paul King has assembled a great cast to star opposite the CGI creation, including Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters, and Brendan Gleeson all of who must team with Paddington after he’s framed by the vain, fading actor Phoenix Buchanan (Hugh Grant).

There’s little else to say except you better get off the couch (oh, wait, you can just order it on VOD from your couch) and get your sticky paws on Paddington 2 because it’s a movie experience you won’t soon forget. It’s a movie that is brimming with wonder and awe. It’s a movie that’s hilarious and touching in equal measure. It has stunning action scenes and even a dazzling musical number. Unless some all-time great movies come out in the final months of 2018, Paddington 2 is assured to be among the top five movies I will have seen this year. Don’t deprive yourself of such joy. Watch Paddington 2 as soon as you can.
