Easter is here and what better way to enjoy the holiday period that sitting down with all the family and enjoying a good movie. With this in mind Filmjuice has come up with a list of films to revel in glorious High Definition Blu-ray for all the family to enjoy.

Hop (Universal)
Is there any better
occasion to try animated comedy Hop than at Easter? E.B. (voiced by
Russell Brand) is a talented rabbit and heir to the Easter Bunny throne,
who dreams of escaping his kingdom to become
a drummer with a rock n roll band. Packed with animated zaniness and
genre-flipping trickery, Hop is sure to have the whole family jumping
for joy.



Puss in Boots 3D (Paramount)
Buccaneers ready
your swords! Antonio Banderas reprises his role as the swashbuckling,
boot-wearing pussycat from Dreamworks’ Shrek series, in a 3D adventure
that’s out of this realm. Accompanied by Humpty
Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) and Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek), Puss sets
off on a quest to track down the legendary magic beans in this
stunningly presented picture, providing ‘purrrfect’ entertainment for
everyone.

The Smurfs 3D (Sony)
The hugely popular,
lovable, blue creatures come to life in this miniature 3D adventure of
epic proportions. Transported from their magical village to present day
New York by the evil wizard Gargamel, the
Smurfs must keep their wits about them if they stand any chance of
making their way home.

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn 3D (Sony)
Based
on Hergé’s series of books, the beautifully animated adventures of
Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock unravel as they investigate the
mystery of the long
lost Unicorn ship. Sure to excite adventurers young and old, the film
lends itself perfectly to a 3D Blu-ray release thanks to its stunning
visuals and sublime storytelling.



Yogi Bear (Warner Bros)
When a documentary
filmmaker travels to Jellystone Park he soon comes face to face with
Yogi Bear, his sidekick Boo-Boo and Ranger Smith. This beautifully
colourful Blu-ray bursts with adventure and lush colours
so vivid, they look like they could just spill out of the screen and
right into your living room.



Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole (Warner Bros)
Starring the vocal
talents of Geoffrey Rush, Hugo Weaving, Sam Neill and Helen Mirren, this
family adventure follows young owl Soren, who dreams of joining a
mythical band of winged warriors. However when
his jealous brother Kludd acts out, a series of events lead the whole
community into the talons of an evil trap, forcing Soren to act on his
dreams of being a hero for real. With breath-taking visuals and
a soaring soundtrack, this is a great example of exactly what a High Definition transfer can do.

The Wizard of Oz (Main Picture) (Warner Bros)
This famous tale of
Dorothy Gale’s journey to the colourful kingdom of Oz is regarded as a
cinematic classic and Hollywood treasure by many. So what better way is
there to return to the magic than with a re-mastered
journey down the yellow brick road in high definition?



Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Warner Bros)
Tim Burton’s take on
Roald Dahl’s classic novel sees Freddie Highmore star as Charlie
Bucket, a poor child who wins a tour of a chocolate factory run by
eccentric recluse Willy Wonka (played by Johnny Depp).
Burton’s take on the Chocolate Factory really is a sight to behold in
high definition. Complete with PVC clad Oompa-Loompas, a chocolate moat
and much more, this Blu-ray will be great entertainment to accompany
those Easter eggs!

Happy Feet 2 (Warner Bros)
Mumble the penguin
has a problem. His son Erik is a very reluctant dancer amongst a colony
who loves to move to the groove and shake to the beat. When their world
is shaken by powerful forces, can he unite
the penguin nations to set things right? Packed with rhythm and rumba,
this sub-zero adventure is sure to warm the hearts of the whole family
on Blu-ray.

Alvin and the Chipmunks – Chipwrecked (Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment)
The third instalment
in the Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise sees Alvin and his buddies
having the time of their lives on a cruise ship until they accidentally
fall overboard and find themselves ‘chipwrecked’
on a remote island. Without their adoptive father Dave, the gang must
learn to survive on their own, often with hilarious consequences that
are sure to have the whole family in stitches.

Alex Moss Editor

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
