  • Yogi Bear

    If you’re looking for some kind of ‘bears shit in the woods’ joke, you’re going to have to go elsewhere. Yogi Bear is re-interpreted in this 3D CGI feature, a below-average kids film that is somewhat redeemed by its cute moral tale about the environment. Save the world, man.


    Africa United is an uplifting and critically acclaimed film about a bunch of kids in Africa who will do just about anything to play in the World Cup. It would put a smile on even Christian Bale’s face… and we have 3 DVDs to give away! Competition ends 10 March 2011

  • Despicable Me 3D

    The heat is on to be the best gosh darn villain the world has ever seen. And when your competition is out nicking the Egyptian pyramids and other great wonders of the world, you know you’ve got to up your game. So Gru sorts himself out with the ultimate secret weapon in his grand master scheme; three orphan girls. And before you get the wrong idea, he doesn’t put them through an intensive training course and turn them into child soldiers, rather, he uses the power of cookie selling to get the ball a-rolling.

  • Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a magical car with more sass than KITT and more aplomb than Herbie – it’s the best magical car by far. This heartwarmingly anarchic musical is now available to buy as a Blu-Ray DVD combo set – ideal to bring colour and vitality to a wet Sunday afternoon.

  • Despicable Me

    Despicable Me is a kids film that may not have been made by Pixar but it could have been: The story of a supervillain struggling to control an army of minions and three orphaned girls will provide real heart and sardonic wit along with the zany animation slapstick.

  • The Hole

    A welcome return from director Joe Dante, The Hole is another fine contribution to the ‘family horror’ genre that helped make his name. Providing both laughs and scares, it credits its child viewers with an ability that too many kids films lack; the intelligence to be treated like adults. Bringing the darkness, but keeping things light, it will entertain both youngsters and grown-ups alike. And it all comes with the added benefit of 3D. So, go on – have a little fun and face your biggest fears.

  • Tooth Fairy

    What happens if you’re a minor league hockey player who’s had his dreams dashed one too many times? Julie Andrews will turn you into a tooth fairy, that’s what. For two weeks, Dwayne “Tooth Fairy” (sorry, “The Rock”) Johnson has to turn good guy and teach positivity sprinkled with fairy dust to a troubled family. This lightweight comedy is strictly for the kids, but you know what? Don’t be a hater, yo. The kids are alright.

  • Furry Vengeance

    Cute and cuddly woodland creatures including squirrels, deer, mice and groundhogs are revolting. Revolting against the real estate developers, who are encroaching on their territory, razing acres of lush, natural habitat to make way for ecologically-unsound housing estates. In Roger Kumble’s family-orientated comedy, Mother Nature fights back tooth and claw (and hoof and feather) against the pesky human invaders. And Brendan Fraser is in it. For some reason.

  • Tetro

    In Tetro, we are given a fascinating and absorbing insight into a family plagued by regret, paralysed by rivalry and past betrayal. Unfortunately, though using highly personal material makes Coppola’s film shine, it also holds it back from real achievement.
