Storks comes to DVD

Storks is the fantastic new family film that’s been enjoyed in cinema’s recently and now been released on DVD to enjoy at home.  A family favourite this is great for adults and kids alike and is perfect for my 6 and 9 year olds to enjoy.  With fast paced easy to understand storylines and humourous scenes, we couldn’t wait to watch it for the first time as a family at home on the sofa.

Storks deliver babies… or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet giant Cornerstore.com. Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip race to make their first-ever baby drop – in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world.

The film quickly gets into the storyline and both my children quickly became engrossed in the film and were silent throughout – always a good sign!  They laughed and were kept entertained throughout.

After it finished I asked for their thoughts:

Mister B ” It was aweswome – can we watch it again?”

Miss M ” It was a brilliant film, I loved watching it”

I think that says it all, we as adults enjoyed watching it to and I think it makes a great film for us all to sit down and watch together.

If you haven’t seen it yet, plan your next weekend, get a copy of Storks on DVD and sit down with the family at watch it!

The Little Penguin: Pororo’s Racing Adventure DVD Review & Giveaway

The Little Penguin: Pororo’s Racing Adventure is a great film for both children and families to watch from Lionsgate and was released on 15th February.  It follows the tale of Pororo and his desire to take part in the Super Sled Championships.  His ambition becomes a reality when he bumps into two pilot turtles, Toto and Mango who make an emergency landing in the local village, and Pororo manages to get a lift with his friends to the championships!

Pororo_DVD_3d-FINAL

The adventure continues as gets a super sled of his own and battles amongst the other teams such as the tigers and the brown bears to compete for the title.  Along the way Pororo inspires both the commentators and the other animals, making this a cute, fun film that I have to say both my children really enjoyed watching.

8yr old Miss M’s verdict: “Brilliant, I love it!.  I liked it because it was quite funny.  I thought the best part was when Pororo fell down a hole and one of the turtles came to rescue him.  Another part I really liked was when Pororo got stuck at the start and had the lollipop boost and was colourful in the air”

5yr old Mister B’s verdict: “Really good, the bit I liked was when the penguin was in the lead of the race.  I liked when the funny men were in the airplane and their yellow thing fell off – that was so funny!”

Paper Planes DVD Review & Giveaway

Paper Planes is a great newly released film by Lionsgate, about an eleven year old Australian boy, Dylan, and his ambition to compete in the World Paper Plane Championships in Japan.

3D_Paper_Planes_packshot

His passion for inventing and creating paper planes is clear to see and the film follows his journey to come up with the best paper plane.  Having lost his mother at a young age and with an unsupportive father he is on his own until he meets up with the current Japanese champion Kimi, who he strikes up a friendship with, which helps boost his self esteem and enthusiasm.  The film follows various emotions from start to finish including friendship, family, trust and self belief.

My 8yr old daughter sat glued to this film during it’s entirety, she thoroughly enjoyed it and I think it was totally appropriate for her age.  I enjoyed the film too, and it is definitely something I would have watched when I was younger, but equally something I loved sitting down to watch as a family now.  It has a feel good factor to it and happy endings all round.
