Best Disney Blu-ray Movies For Young Children

Earlier this winter I did some research on the best Disney blu-ray movies for young children. I came up with a rather short list of movies that are appropriate for children of about 5 years of age, and all of them are rated G.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the movie on the short list that I am the most excited about. (Although the rest of them are great movies.) My preference is no doubt based on the fact that Snow White was probably the first Disney movie I ever saw as a child and because Snow White and those cute little Dwarfs are so big in the Disney world.

Snow White, however, is NOT a popular choice in my household of teenage guys but that just makes me more determined than ever to see it. (Hey, the first blu-ray disc I ever watched was the most excellent although decidedly girly TinkerBell.) I understand that Snow White has been beautifully restored and I am hoping that one way or another I will get to see it during the holidays...

If you are interested in seeing which other Disney movies made the short list you can visit my page by clicking right here. I think you'll find some great choices for the little ones on that list.

See you

Hallmark's A Boyfriend For Christmas Movie

Whether or not you are looking for a boyfriend for Christmas, you are bound to like this movie if you enjoy chick flicks. This one is definitely a romantic comedy, quite enjoyable as such. It aired originally on the Hallmark Channel in 2004 and became available on DVD the following year making it quite affordable now at just over $10 at Amazon.

As a 'tween, Holly Grant wishes for a new boyfriend. Santa assures her that she will find one when the time is right. Twenty years later, Santa delivers on his promise with a gentleman who calls himself 'Douglas Firewood.' You'll laugh and you'll cry...another nice Hallmark Entertainment Christmas movie.

All this writing about and watching of Christmas movies has me wondering what are the ultimate favorite Christmas movies.

Is it a classic Christmas movie like those discussed on Five Classic Christmas Blu-Ray Movies & Specials? Or one of the modern-day films like Christmas Blu-ray Movies ~~ Add One To Your Collection Now? Or something totally different like a Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie like A Dog Named Christmas Movie?

What are your favorites?
I'm looking forward to hearing YOUR Christmas favorites!

Hallmark Hall of Fame's A Dog Named Christmas Movie

A Dog Named Christmas Movie

If you missed A Dog Named Christmas earlier this month you missed a good movie which is likened to Yeller with a happy ending.

A Dog Named Christmas is based on the book written by Greg Kincaid. It is a thoroughly enjoyable family movie which will make you laugh, cry and smile.

It tells the story of a young man who is developmentally challenged and who displays a wonderful affinity for animals. He learns of a special program that runs at Christmastime and sees people fostering dogs from the local shelter. He convinces his father that they should have one of those dogs for Christmas and his father finally agrees, on the stern agreement that the dog MUST go back on December 26th, when Christmas is over.

A Hallmark Hall of Fame television production, I really enjoyed it. As a matter of fact, I even enjoyed the commercials. The movie is available for purchase from Amazon from private sellers by clicking right here, albeit at a premium due to the fact that Hallmark has not made it widely available. If you are looking for a well-done, family friendly, Christmas story, you cannot go wrong with this one.

See you

The Essential Holiday Collection of Christmas Blu-ray Movies

The Essential Holiday Collection is a great Christmas blu-ray movie set, perfect for holiday gift giving. I like the assortment of movies that it includes...The Polar Express, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Elf and A Christmas Story. I think it represents an interesting selection of holiday movies for a family with older children. It doesn't contain any of what many people consider 'classic' Christmas movies, but it does contain a couple that may go on to become classics PLUS it contains fun movies that my teenagers would be happy to watch anytime.

Concensus seems to be that these versions are better than the DVD versions although some people might have liked them to be better still. However, at Amazon's discounted price, which includes FREE shipping, I don't think you can go wrong if you are looking to build your blu-ray movie collection with a few fun movies.

Elvis Presley Christmas Duets

Last year when the album Elvis Presley Christmas Duets was released, I was enthralled. I even wrote a page about it called, of course, Elvis Presley Christmas Duets.

I loved the concept of old familiar songs by Elvis being refreshed by the addition of some of the best female recording artists in country music today. The likes of Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood, Amy Grant and Anne Murray offered up a new take on Elvis' music while honoring it at the same time.

Even the videos about the making of this album were pretty powerful. I particularly loved the video which Priscilla Presley hosted about the creation of this album.

Last year Elvis Presley Christmas Duets reached an amazing number 3 on the U.S. top country music chart. I do think that anyone who loves Elvis and/or country music would really enjoy this Christmas album.
