This gallery of Christmas gifts guide ideas covers DVDs and CDs. London Mums have listed some of the best releases to inspire you with what to buy for yourself or your little ones.
One of the best Disney films in 2015 which I predict will win an Academy Award in 2016. My 9 year old son has watched it twice in 2 days and said that he liked it because ‘finally Disney has made a film which is completely different from what we know already’. Read London Mums’ film critic Freda Cooper‘s review here.
Everyone’s favourite goggle-wearing, yellow sidekicks are on DVD this Christmas. You can read our film critic Freda Cooper’s review of MINIONS here. MINIONS begins at the dawn of time, following the Minions as they evolve through the ages, serving the most despicable of villains along the way. Despite their best efforts, they struggle to keep their evil bosses for long, and ultimately fall into a deep depression when they can’t find a new master to serve.
Thankfully, one courageous Minion named Kevin steps in to save the day with his two unlikely sidekicks – teenage rebel and wannabe rock-star Stuart, and the hapless yet lovable little Bob. They embark upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential boss. Their quest sees them travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960’s New York City, finally ending in London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date – saving all of Minion kind from obliteration.
