Universal Sony Pictures Film Synopsis

Paw Patrol: Mission Paw – Get ready to enjoy five all new Paw Patrol adventures with Ryder and the loveable hounds. This DVD includes the double-length title episode Mission Paw: Quest for the Crown, Mission Paw: Royally Spooked, Pups in a Fix, Pups Save a Robo-saurus and Pups Save a Goldrush.

Paddington 2 – Look who is back with a sequel! Everyone’s favourite bear spots a pop-up book in an antique shop – the perfect present for his beloved aunt’s 100th birthday! Paddington embarks on an epic quest to unmask the culprit when a thief steals the prized book before Aunt Lucy’s big celebration.

Captain Underpants – This film was a massive hit for followers of imaginative pranksters George and Harold. When their principal threatens to separate them into different classes, the boys accidentally hypnotize him into thinking that he’s an incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants!

Boss Baby – Told from the point of view of seven-year-old Tim, the wise-cracking Boss Baby arrives at Tim’s home in a taxi, wearing a suit. The instant sibling rivalry must soon be put aside when Tim discovers Boss Baby is actually a spy on a secret mission and they must join forces.

    We love most animated flicks,
    But there is one that makes us laugh and sing lounder than the rest,
    It gets us dancing and hand waving in our seats,

    We love Shrek because the characters make us laugh. Donkey is just so annoyingly lovable. Great for the adults to see some of their childhood nursery rhyme characters come to life as well. Something for the whole family to enjoy time and time again.

    I love so many! Finding Nemo and An American Tale (1,2 and 3)have to be up there, but my all time favourite and one both kids love watching with me is Aristocats! It’s an oldie but a goody and the music is so fun to join in with.
    “Everybody wants to be a cat, cause a cat is the only Kat that knows where it’s at! ” has got to be one of the family’s favourite lines in the movie.

    Youngest daughter is autistic and loves Ice Age animations, she has a thing for Scrat. When she was younger she’d want Ice Age on over and over, it wasn’t until later when she worked out the controls that she’d fast forward just to see the Scrat sections of the film and when he’s on she laughs and laughs, I love that she finds him so funny.

    My favourite animated movie, personally,
    Is the gorgeous original Toy Story.
    Fond memories of watching with my siblings,
    And now I love to watch it with my children.
    The animation, the colours, and the songs,
    All so meaningful: they do no wrong!
    From memories made, to memories we now create:
    I love a good movie night where we all stay up a little late!

    Charlotte’s Web (the animated musical version) not only does it teach you kindness and compassion fr others but is filled with amazing songs that you will remember forever
