Another brilliant Disney Pixar movie, telling the tail of a boy confronting his families ancient ban on music, Miguel imagines a future where he becomes a famous performer like his hero, Ernesto de la Cruz. Determined to prove his gift, Miguel finds himself in the spectacular and multi-coloured Land of the Dead following an unusual chain of events. Along the way, he meets many amazing people and together they set off on an unexpected journey to reveal the truth behind the family’s past.

Paddington 2

Even if you no longer have little ones to keep entertained, this movie is an absolute must see. We all remember Paddington, and he is now comfortably settled with the Brown family, living in Windsor gardens he has become a recognized and loved member of the community, spreading happiness and sticky paw marks wherever he visits. But when completing a good deed and looking for the ideal present for his much adored Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, Paddington finds a unique pop-up book in an antique shop. But when the book is stolen, it’s Paddington who must unmask the culprit. A truly relateable and feel good film.


These family movies are brilliant, they amused us, made us think, and gave us plenty to talk about. At the same time, they offered worthwhile messages, character role models, and left us smiling, crying and singing along to each big-screen spectacle.
