The American habit of heading to the movie theatre for Christmas Day is slowly catching on here in Canada. While I’m all for some movie watching, I’d really prefer to curl up on my own couch and watch something at home, in the comfort of my Christmas PJs. Pete’s Dragon , The BFG, and Alice Through The Looking Glass are now out on Blu-Ray and DVD, three great movies for the holidays
Walt Disney’s Pete’s Dragon hit movie theatres in August. Goose and E1 went to see the movie in person while the rest of us stayed in our comfortable home. You may recall that E1 was glad that someone was finally spelling Elliot properly in this movie. Aside from this wry observation, both of them thoroughly enjoyed it.
The Blu-Ray & DVD edition comes with lots of behind the scenes and deleted footage. And hey, Rotten Tomatoes likes it, so you know it has to be good.
The BFG Big Friendly Giant is one we missed when it came to the theatre. This classic Roald Dahl story is brought to life by the directing talents of Steven Spielberg and the creative genius at Walt Disney. It is an engaging and fanciful story for both kids and kids at heart. Sophie and BFGcrush what seem like such glaring differences to form an incredible bond.
Moving on to the slightly older set, Alice Through The Looking Glass offers a chance to follow a modernized Alice back to Underland in a bid to save the Mad Hatter. I have always found the characters that Johnny Depp plays to be a little dark and a whole lot weird. The Mad Hatter character was clearly made for him.
