  • The Princess Diaries [2001] The Princess Diaries | DVD | (07/10/2002) from £4.37  |  Saving you £13.60 (75.60%)  |  RRP £17.99

    A thoroughly engaging fairy tale that's family friendly without being condescending, The Princess Diaries is your basic Cinderella makeover story given a fresh, affectionate twist courtesy of a game, energetic cast and a screenplay that skirts schmaltz in favour of gentle, effective comedy. Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) is a frizzy-haired, glasses-wearing 15-year-old girl whose two highest ambitions are to become invisible and to get a few smooches from the slickly attractive school heartthrob. As a girl who can't stand being the centre of attention so much that she throws up during debate class, she's stunned and horrified when her coolly continental grandmother(Julie Andrews) shows up and informs her that she's the crown princess of the European principality Genovia. Soon enough, Mia has to undertake "princess lessons" (and a makeover) from her queenly grandmother, and eventually she blossoms into a confident, radiant girl despite the worries and pressure that her newfound status brings. What makes The Princess Diaries work is director Garry Marshall's guileless, irony-free approach to the material (based on Meg Cabot's novel). In comparison to most sarcastic, ultra-hip teen comedies, The Princess Diaries is refreshingly and enjoyably square, content to win you over on charm alone and not a slick bag of tricks. Hathaway is a charismatic, appealing role model with a sharp sense of comic timing, and Andrews--who came to stardom as the object of a makeover supreme in My Fair Lady on Broadway--is at her regal best, whether teaching Mia the proper royal wave or learning how to eat a corndog. Both leading ladies are complemented by a finely tuned cast, including Hector Elizondo as Genovia's head of security (and romantic counterpart to Andrews), Heather Matarazzo as Mia's best pal, and Robert Schwartzman as the good guy who ultimately wins Mia's heart. All in all, this is a royal pleasure. --Mark Englehart, Amazon.com

  • Rugrats In Paris - The Movie [2001] Rugrats In Paris - The Movie | DVD | (08/10/2001) from £5.99  |  Saving you £7.00 (53.90%)  |  RRP £12.99

    The second theatrical film from the popular television show, Rugrats in Paris is better than the original surprise hit, The Rugrats Movie. Instead of delving into their rich fantasy life, the Rugrats gang goes on a real adventure when their families visit Paris together. Mr Pickles is brought over to fix his giant Reptar robot, the centerpiece of EuroReptarland (a biting version of the trouble-plagued EuroDisney). The underlying story has Chuckie (the one with the square glasses) looking for a new mummy, as his dad (who has a square personality) starts to fall for a villainous executive (voiced by Susan Sarandon). Soon Paris takes it on the chin as the diaper gang tries to save Chuckie's dad from the altar. The success of the Rugrats is in the writing, where much thought goes into finding comic gems for the adults (there are wonderful parodies of The Godfather and King Kong that will sail over kids' heads). The garble-mouthed youngsters keep up their joyful ways in this 78-minute feature that feels no different from their Nickelodeon series except in length, some 3-D animation sequences, and an eclectic song score (with Cyndi Lauper's "I Want a Mom That Will Last Forever" the real catch). (Ages six and older) --Doug Thomas, Amazon.com

  • Rio [DVD] Rio | DVD | (24/10/2011) from £2.99  |  Saving you £17.00 (85.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    A classic tale of self-discovery, romance, and adventure, Rio is the story of Blu, a flightless macaw who was taken from the forests of Rio de Janeiro as a young bird and raised by a kind girl in a small Minnesota town. When an ornithologist comes to town and informs Blu's now-grown owner Linda that Blu is the last male of his species, Blu and Linda return to Rio so that Blu can mate with a feisty female named Jewel. Thus begins an adventure in which Blu encounters everything from the complexities of courtship and love, to thugs involved in an exotic animal theft ring, strange new friendships--including one with an overly friendly slobbering bulldog--and a crazy ride through a carnival parade. Blu and Linda both mature as a result of their journey in Rio, and love ensures that life will never be quite the same for either ever again. The animation in Rio is quite impressive, the characters are endearing, the Brazilian music is very appealing, and the star-studded voice cast includes Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Will.i.am, Wanda Sykes, Jane Lynch, George Lopez and Jamie Foxx. While the story doesn't really offer anything new--instead playing much like a rehashing of some of the major plot points from movies like Madagascar, Finding Nemo and Babe--that doesn't mean the film isn't perfectly entertaining for both kids and adults. (Ages 6 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

  • Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron [2002] Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron | DVD | (01/09/2014) from £3.99  |  Saving you £16.00 (80.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Horse lovers young and old will celebrate Spirit, an utterly enjoyable and marvellous-looking animated film. The titular stallion runs free in the Cimarron (New Mexico) wilderness until a series of men try to master the proud horse, leading to adventures through a US Cavalry fort, Native American settlements, and a railroad camp. Despite a heavy dose of political correctness and realism (the animals don't talk; we only hear Spirit's internal monologue, voiced by Matt Damon), directors Kelly Asbury and Lorna Cook give their hero many only-in-a-movie moments, including an action sequence rivalling any of James Bond’s escapes. The stirring mix of 2-D and 3-D animation is absolutely stunning and aptly fuelled by composer Hans Zimmer's synthesised score. The film earns one demerit for 80s rocker Bryan Adams's abundant songs--a different singer could have brought more to the film.--Doug Thomas, Amazon.com

  • Despicable Me [DVD] Despicable Me | DVD | (21/02/2011) from £3.42  |  Saving you £16.57 (82.90%)  |  RRP £19.99

  • Jimmy Neutron - Boy Genius [2002] Jimmy Neutron - Boy Genius | DVD | (14/10/2002) from £5.93  |  Saving you £7.06 (54.30%)  |  RRP £12.99

    A venture into franchise-building from the children's cable channel Nickelodeon, Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius arrives in concert with a TV series and a great deal of merchandising muscle. Set in the charmingly designed town of Retroville, which boasts sleek 1950s lines, the film introduces Jimmy (voiced by Debi Derryberry), a pint-sized kid with a penchant for elaborate and almost-successful inventions (a time-speeding microwave for cultivating pearls, a shrinking ray which confusingly looks too much like a TV remote, a girl-eating plant) and the usual array of sidekicks (asthmatic Carl Wheezer, robot dog Goddard) and nemeses (smart girl Cindy Vortex, supposed tough kid Nick). Thanks to Jimmy's attempts to contact alien civilisations, the Earth is noticed by a race of formless green slime creatures who live in egg-shaped glass housings. Just as Jimmy, frustrated by parental disapproval of his often-malfunctioning gadgets ("no rockets in the house"), wishes all parents would disappear, the alien king (Patrick Stewart) stages a mass abduction of the town's adults so they can be sacrificed to his race's giant chicken god. After a riotous discipline-free day, the kids decide they miss their mummies and daddies. Jimmy converts some carnival rides into a space fleet so the kids can rescue the grown-ups. Less inflated and elaborate than Pixar CGI efforts like the Toy Story films or Monsters, Inc., Jimmy Neutron is lightly likeable rather than overwhelmingly wonderful. The music choices (with the exception of an eerily apt use of "The Birdy Song" as an instrument of torture) are lazily standardised (mostly kiddie rap) and the outsider-saves-the-day fairy tale plot is formulaic. But there's a great deal of invention around the margins (dozens of gags designed to become apparent only after repeated viewings), the villains are wonderful creations (when their shells break, they become green puddles with eyes) and it manages both smarts and sweets (Carl's "I Touched a Llama" badge). --Kim Newman

  • Arrietty (Blu-ray) [DVD] Arrietty (Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (26/03/2012) from £13.30  |  Saving you £9.69 (42.10%)  |  RRP £22.99

The fledgling friendship between the two lonely children causes Haru the housekeeper to become aware of the borrowers' existence. The family of little borrowers are forced to choose between staying in their well-established home or leaving for the uncertainty of the great outdoors.

  • Norm Of The North [DVD] Norm Of The North | DVD | (18/07/2016) from £3.00  |  Saving you £16.99 (85.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

  • Monsters University (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray) [Region Free] Monsters University (Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray) | Blu Ray | (11/11/2013) from £7.95  |  Saving you £15.47 (59.50%)  |  RRP £25.99

    Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer-and he knows better than anyone that the best scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU Mike's plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan Sulley (voice of John Goodman) a natural-born Scarer. The pair's out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University's elite Scare Program. To make matters worse they realize they will have to work together along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters if they ever hope to make things right. Screaming with laughter and oozing with heart Disney Pixar's Monsters University is directed by Dan Scanlon (Cars Mater and the Ghostlight Tracy) produced by Kori Rae (Up The Incredibles Monsters Inc.) and features music from future Rock-and-Roll-Hall-of-Fame-inductee and award winning composer Randy Newman (Monsters Inc. Toy Story 3).

  • Epic (Blu-ray + UV Copy) Epic (Blu-ray + UV Copy) | Blu Ray | (07/10/2013) from £2.99  |  Saving you £22.00 (88.00%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Epic is a computer-animated adventure fantasy filled with gorgeous scenery, nice animated effects, plenty of action, and a somewhat familiar plot about the existence of a society of tiny people. Mary Katherine (Amanda Seyfried), or M.K. as she likes to be called, has recently come to live with her dad Bomba (Jason Sudeikis) in a ramshackle house in the middle of nowhere. Obsessed with proving the existence of a society of tiny guardians of the forest called Leafmen, who are responsible for maintaining balance by keeping the Boggans from spreading blight throughout the forest, M.K.'s dad has little time for a daughter or the realities of everyday life. A chance event lands M.K. right in the middle of the Leafmen's society, where she quickly develops a whole new appreciation for her father's eccentricities. She finds herself charged by the Leafmen's queen (Beyoncé Knowles) with a difficult task that will mean the difference between preservation and destruction for the forest. M.K. joins forces with an assortment of unlikely heroes, including slug and snail duo Mub and Grub (Aziz Ansari and Chris O'Dowd), overzealous Leafmen commander General Ronin (Colin Farrell), and Nod (Josh Hutcherson), a soldier with a bad habit of questioning authority. Their perilous journey introduces M.K. to a strange new breed of enemy and a whole new way of thinking. Loosely based on William Joyce's book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs, the film shares its premise--a society of tiny people tries to thrive without drawing the attention of the larger humans--with films like the Tinker Bell movies and Arrietty. What's unique about Epic is that it's just as much action film as fantasy. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

  • Beauty and the Beast [DVD] Beauty and the Beast | DVD | (29/11/2010) from £12.79  |  Saving you £7.02 (35.10%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The film that officially signalled Disney's animation renaissance (following The Little Mermaid) and the only animated feature to receive a Best Picture Oscar nomination, Beauty and the Beast remains the yardstick by which all other animated films should be measured. It relates the story of Belle, a bookworm with a dotty inventor for a father; when he inadvertently offends the Beast (a prince whose heart is too hard to love anyone besides himself), Belle boldly takes her father's place, imprisoned in the Beast's gloomy mansion. Naturally, Belle teaches the Beast to love. What makes this such a dazzler, besides the amazingly accomplished animation and the winning coterie of supporting characters (the Beast's mansion is overrun by quipping, dancing household items) is the array of beautiful and hilarious songs by composer Alan Menken and the late, lamented lyricist Howard Ashman. (The title song won the 1991 Best Song Oscar, and Menken's score scored a trophy as well.) The downright funniest song is "Gaston," a lout's paean to himself (including the immortal line, "I use antlers in all of my de-co-ra-ting"). "Be Our Guest" is transformed into an inspired Busby Berkeley homage. Since Ashman's passing, animated musicals haven't quite reached the same exhilarating level of wit, sophistication, and pure joy. --David Kronke --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

  • Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs [DVD] [2009] Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs | DVD | (24/01/2011) from £2.99  |  Saving you £17.00 (85.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The world of animated movies, you might think, revolves purely around what Disney-Pixar and DreamWorks are up to. But then along came Sony with Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and shook things up. For here is one of the most charming, imaginative animated films of 2009, and it looks sensational in high definition. Its story is actually quite slight, and arguably the film?s biggest weakness is that it stretches it a little too thin. Based on the book by Judi and Ron Barrett, the charming story is of a young inventor by the name of Flint, whose track record leaves plenty to be desired. Yet one day, he comes up with a machine that manages to, via a series of circumstances, make it rain food. That?s cheeseburgers one day, drumsticks the next, cakes on another, that sort of thing. Inevitably, this attracts the attention of the world, and inevitably, problems start to arise. In spite of its slight problems, however, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs is a bright, vibrant, colourful triumph. Bless with a superb voice cast and some sparkling visuals, the film has broad family appeal, and plenty of rewatch value. Plus, as you might hope, its broad colour palette looks simply sumptuous in high definition. It?s a cavalcade of striking visuals, superbly transferred to 1080p. Matched up to a very active surround-sound track, the combination of terrific main feature and equally strong transfer make Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs one of the very family Blu-rays on the market. And the likes of Disney and DreamWorks? There?s very much a new competitor in town? --Simon Brew

  • Nanny McPhee [Blu-ray] Nanny McPhee | Blu Ray | (19/07/2010) from £3.59  |  Saving you £16.40 (82.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    You'll learn to love her...warts and all. Emma Thompson whose first screenplay won the 1995 Oscar' for Sense and Sensibility returns to screenwriting with Nanny McPhee a motion picture adaptation of the Nurse Matilda books by Christianna Brand. Thompson the only person to have won Oscars' for both acting and writing also plays the title role in Nanny McPhee opposite Colin Firth Kelly Macdonald and - in her first role for the big screen in two decades - Angela Lansbury. In this dark and witty fable Thompson portrays a person of unsettling appearance and magical powers who enters the household of the recently widowed Mr. Brown (Firth) and attempts to tame his seven exceedingly ill-behaved children. The children led by the oldest boy Simon (Love Actually's Thomas Sangster) have managed to drive away 17 previous nannies and are certain that they will have no trouble with this one. But as Nanny McPhee takes control they begin to notice that their vile behavior now leads swiftly and magically to rather startling consequences. Her influence also extends to the family's deeper problems including Mr. Brown's sudden and seemingly inexplicable attempts to find a new wife; an announcement by the domineering Aunt Adelaide (Angela Lansbury) that she intends to take one of the children away; and the sad and secret longings of their scullery maid Evangeline (Kelly Macdonald). As the children's behavior begins to change Nanny McPhee's arresting face and frame appear to change as well creating even more questions about this mysterious stranger whom the children and their father have come to love.

    Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, an animated adventure from the DreamWorks studio, has little connection to the original fables from the Arabian Nights, but it's an entertaining romp none the less. Sinbad (voiced by the midwest vowels of Brad Pitt) gets commissioned by the wicked goddess Eris (Michelle Pfeiffer) to steal a magical book called the Book of Peace from the city of Syracuse--but the prince of Syracuse turns out to be a childhood friend of Sinbad's. So Eris steals the book herself and frames Sinbad, making the hero sail to the edge of the world to get it back, accompanied by Marina (Catherine Zeta-Jones), a woman he's secretly loved for years. The movie skilfully blends hand-drawn and computer images. The storyline is surprisingly well-constructed and actually has some thoughts about friendship and personal fibre, while providing all the swashbuckling, derring-do and cliffhangers the audience could want. --Bret Fetzer
