I was delighted to get a surprise delivery from Warner Brothers. A beautiful gingham lined Hessian sack arrived addressed to 'Wendy and Family'.
Inside was an amazing selection of family films, perfect for the festive season. We love snuggling up to watch a film together with a bowl of popcorn. Thanks to Warner Brothers we now have some real classics to watch together.
The Films we received were:
Polar Express (Blu-Ray)
Happy Feet (Blu-Ray)
Yogi Bear (Blu-Ray)
Scooby Doo and the Curse of the Lake Monster (Blu-Ray)
Yogi Bear's First Christmas
Scooby Doo Mystery Machine Box Set
The beautiful sack and the thrilling selection of films were met with whoops of joy from the children and my husband Ian was a little over excited by the Mystery Machine DVD box set. Scooby Doo is a firm favourite of ours, a reminder of our youth. I think this limited collector's edition complete with eight discs has made his Christmas!
It is Polar Express that really sums up Christmas for a lot of people who love the magical story, beautiful animation and powerful message about the wonder of Christmas!
This year the ultimate feel good festive film is available to buy on 3D for those lucky enough to have a 3D TV and 3D Blu-Ray player. The action will be brought to life with stunning picture and sound quality. We received it on Blu-Ray and the high definition imagery is simply breath taking.
The story of the boy who doubts the existence of Santa, is perfect for young and old alike. It is my parents favourite Christmas film and one that we watch year after year. The extraordinary steam train journey to the North Pole up and down mountains, across a frozen lake and across teetering bridges is full of excitement. Tom Hanks is captured exquisitely as the animated conductor. "Seeing is believing!" and you'll see wonders and you'll believe!
The film is a bit dark in parts, but if you truly believe in the magic of Christmas you will love this film. Especially in fabulous high definition or 3D!
So, I consider myself very lucky to have such a great collection of films to enjoy thanks the the fabulous folk at Warner Bros! Thank you to them and happy festive viewing to one and all!
