The Spiderwick Chronicles is a delightful romp that has all the elements necessary for a rip-roaring time.
This is a DVD that all families should watch – it's a great one for parents of small children to get clued in to what lies ahead; and an even greater one for kids to appreciate their mothers.
This is an excellent drama about the most famous stutterer of all, King George VI who ascended the throne of England when his elder brother Edward (Guy Pearce) abdicated.
Capitalising on the popularity of the Kung Fu Panda movie, this 25-minute animated short should go down well with the kids. Not just because of the story, albeit a bit short, but mostly because of the interactive and educational content on the DVD.
The Soloist falls short of achieving the kind of audience connection necessary to empathise with its main protagonists although it offers excellent acting by Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr.
This is a delightful and colourful movie and will make you want to take your kids to the bird park and perhaps even go for Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Hulk smash! That, in a nutshell, would be the review for The Incredible Hulk reboot starring Edward Norton and directed by Louis Leterrier.
Gnomeo & Juliet is, as you may have guessed from the title, an adaptation (of sorts) of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Except that it's about garden gnomes and in animated format.
If you’re only watching this movie for pure escapist fare, as well as to pass some quality time with the kids, you can’t go far wrong with The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Unfortunately, not even Yogi or his sidekick Boo Boo could have saved this movie. It is that bad. If you want to expose your child to Yogi Bear, I suggest you get the cartoon version.
