2016 World Series Champions Blu-ray Review

“2016 World Series Champions” is a well made documentary film.

I know many people out there are thinking the complete 2016 World Series set is all you need, but if you’re a Cubs enthusiast, I’m here to tell you the “2016 World Series Champions” disc is actually worth picking up as well.

The 90 minute documentary movie narrated by actor Vince Vaughn is a surprisingly in-depth look at the entire World Series. This isn’t just a collection of highlight reels. Instead, it contains game footage, interviews with players and staff members like Jon Lester and Ben Zobrist, fan interviews and footage, behind-the-scenes footage on and off the field that makes you feel like you are right there with the players, player spotlights, archival footage, discussions about the history of both clubs, and more.

“2016 World Series Champions” could have easily been a Cubs puff piece, but it’s not. It’s a professionally shot documentary that really gives viewers a look at the entirety of the World Series. Obviously, the film chronicles the series game by game, but it also examines the atmosphere in both cities and digs into the historical significance of this match-up. We all know this wasn’t just another World Series as the ratings proved. This was arguably one of the biggest moments in MLB in the past several decades. This movie does a fine job of displaying that.


Presentation: 1.78:1 1080p. How does it look? Not only is the transfer really strong, but the game footage looks even better than the actual broadcasts.

Audio Track: 5.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? This is a well rounded 5.1 track.

* DVD copy and Digital copy.
* MLB ads.
* Regular season and World Series highlight reels for the Cubs.
* A collection of clinching moments.
* A 2 minute clip of the World Series Parade.
* “Cubs On David Ross”- Cubs players talk about the now retired catcher David Ross.

Overall Thoughts: “2016 World Series Champions” puts this historic and emotional clash under a microscope (so to speak) in a mere 90 minutes and it does it well.
