Halloween is creeping up quickly! It was a big event back home in Canada, and it’s growing each year that I’ve been here in the UK. Now that I have children, watching horror movies is out, but it’s a good time for us to be big kids at heart and take a trip down memory lane and rediscover some great movies of our past through our children’s eyes. Here’s a look at 4 movies that we’ll be watching this month; and if you win our giveaway, you can watch them, too!
I’m working with Fetch and #BigKidAtHeart to bring you a review and giveaway of the following films:
- The Addams Family (Blu-ray)
- Casper Meets Wendy (DVD)
- Book of Life (Blu-ray)
- The Secret of NIMH (Blu-ray)
The Addams Family
The Addams Family was all the rage when it hit the theatres back in 1991, hot off the heals of TV reruns of the original ’60s series. Uncle Fester arrives on the Addams’ kooky doorstep after 25 years away in the Bermuda Triangle…but all is not as it seems as Fester is decidedly ‘normal.’ As things transpire and the Addams’ family is evicted from their home as Fester works to swindle them of their fortune, will Fester’s true identity be revealed? Will Gomez be able to save the family and their fortune?
Casper Meets Wendy
Ah, the antics of Casper, the Friendly Ghost! His adventure books were classic in my elementary school library. In this movie Casper and his three uncles; Stretch, Stinkie and Fatso team up with Wendy the Good Little Witch. The friendly new duo then take down the bullying warlock who is after Wendy and her three aunts, Gerty, Gabby and Fanny, trying to steal their power.
Book of Life
Be pulled into this love triangle amongst friends in Mexico. Although Maria has gone to Europe, both Manolo and Joaquin want to marry her, even if it may challenge the family dynamics. To make matters more interesting, the three are unaware that there are dieties who are wagering on the outcome of the love triangle. I haven’t yet watched this movie, but it has great reviews and it will be first choice for our weekly family movie night.
The Secret of NIMH
An award-winner movie loosely based on the book of the same name, Mrs. Brisby must move her mouse family’s home before ploughing season begins. The chore is made more sympathetic when you find Mrs. Brisby is a widow and she has a sick child at home. Will her new friendships with clever rats, a lovelorn crow, and a great owl be enough to save her family as they meet further challenges along the way in the form of a ferocious cat. What is the secret? I will not provide the spoiler…watch and find out!
