Disney’s critically acclaimed animated 2012 kids movie was actually custom-built for parents who came of age in the era of game arcades. A wildly inventive tale of the secret lives of videogame “characters” who come alive in hilariously socialized ways (a la “Toy Story”) once the shopping mall closes, it centers on one particular pixilated palooka, Ralph, whose complex about being the “bad guy” in a popular token-taker leads to a sprawling comedic misadventure. Bonus features on all the formats include the animated short that also preceded the theatrical release, “Paperman,” an Academy Award-winning charmer about a young man in a big city who uses his imagination, a stack of papers and a little luck to win the girl of his dreams.
