How to Have a Movie Night

There’s nothing better then sitting on the sofa with some friends, some popcorn and some free DVDs!

Kids DVDs

1.   Choose a day and a time that will suit a lot of people. If you choose a Friday or Saturday night, people won’t have school the next day. Think about how many movies you want to watch, if each one is about an hour and a half, you’ll need at least four hours to watch two movies (once you include time for eating and talking).

2.   Invite people. Give people lots of notice so they (and their parents) can organise things. The more the merrier! Get everyone to bring a small snack or drink so there is heaps of yummy stuff to eat.

3.   Choose some movies! Did you know the library has heaps of kids movies on DVD? And they are all free for you to take out? You can even reserve the ones you think look good and get them send to the library closest to your house! Here are some great picks:

Epic
M. K. is shrunken to the size of the tiny citizens of a forest that is in deadly danger. Can M. K. help save their Queen, their tiny world, and save our world too? This is a very exciting movie with great animation.

Lost Medallion: The Adventure of Billy Stone
Two friends uncover a long-lost medallion that transports them back in time. They must survive the perils of the past as well as outwit the evil Cobra!

Cover of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 3Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2
Inventor Flint Lockwood thought he saved the world when he destroyed his machine that turned water into food causing cheeseburger rain and spaghetti tornadoes. But Flint soon learns that his invention survived and is now creating food-animals! A sequel to the awesome Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Monsters University
When Mike and Sulley first meet at university they are sworn enemies, but when their mutual dislike gets them thrown out of the School of Scaring, they join forces to compete in the school’s annual Scare Games and become friends.

Mr StinkMr Stink Book Cover
Chloe invites Mr Stink (a stinky, neighbourhood tramp) to secretly live in her garden shed. Chloe must keep this secret from her family, while her Dad is keeping a secret and Mr Stink is keeping an amazing secret too. This movie is based on a hilarious book by David Walliams.

The library is getting new DVDs all the time so check out the full list on our catalogue.

4.   Arrange some comfy chairs, bean bags, cushions and blankets around the TV.

5.   Have fun!

Bridge To Terabithia

Have you watched the movie Bridge To Terabithia ?

Well it is a movie about a imaginative world which Leslie makes up in the woods.  Leslie opens Jess’s mind to the amazing kingdom of Terabithia!  They find tons of magic creatures like giants,ogres and other fantastical creatures.

Leslie is a very imaginative girl she is really smart as well as kind and friendly.

Jess is very good at drawing and he is friendly too.

And there are lots more characters!!

There is also a book a bit different to the DVD though i am reading it a school for my novel reading i am half through it.

I would recommend it for boys and girls.

I would give it 10 out of 10

Horrid Henry and The Last Airbender on DVD

Two new book related DVDs have arrived in the library this week: the TV series of Horrid Henry, and (just in time for the movie) the TV series of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Now you can watch your favourite horrible boy, Horrid Henry, create havoc on your TV screen in Horrid Henry’s Underpants and Horrid Henry’s Horrid Revenge.  Each DVD has 6 episodes plus heaps of extras, including a quiz, games and other cool activities.

Before Avatar: The Last Airbender was a movie, or a cartoon series it was a graphic novel about a brother and sister who rescue a mysterious boy named Aang, who has been trapped in a glacier.  He is one of the Airbenders, a race of people not seen in a century, and the long-lost avatar whose destiny is to save the world from war with the Fire Nation.  You can now get all the volumes out on DVD from the library and discover the story behind the movie.
