A Wrinkle in Time

815KreUttDL._SL1368_

SYNOPSIS: Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and breakout star Storm Reid take viewers on an extraordinary journey of self-discovery, then behind the scenes through exciting extras! Just in time for summer break, Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” from acclaimed director Ava DuVernay, comes home. The stunning story of an ordinary girl’s extraordinary adventure through time and space offers exhilarating entertainment and positive messages for the whole family—encouraging self-confidence, inclusion and pushing imagination to the next level.

This mind-bending and wildly imaginative sci-fi family flick, based on the acclaimed novel, suffers from some clunky writing but also contains plenty of visually dazzling production design, thought-provoking themes, big concepts, and a stellar cast. It may have some narrative problems but A Wrinkle in Time ultimately provides an intelligent yet accessible – and earnest – adventure for children looking for more than princesses and superheroes.

Peter Pan: Anniversary Edition

SYNOPSIS: In celebration of its 65th anniversary, Disney’s beloved flight of fantasy, “Peter Pan,” joins the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection, landing in homes. With a little faith, trust and pixie dust, every member of the family will let their imagination soar on this epic adventure to Never Land, sparkling with legendary animation, extraordinary music and both all-new and classic bonus features.

A classic comes home again! Granted, the film was released in 1953 so some of the subject matter and references are a tad ‘dated’ but Peter Pan still represents the golden era of Disney animated films. Loaded with whimsy and charm, relive the unforgettable songs and magical adventure once more plus dive into some pretty cool bonus features.

South Park: The Complete 21st Season

SYNOPSIS: All ten episodes from South Park’s incredible 21st season are packed into this exclusive 2-disc set. Join Cartman, Kenny, Stan, and Kyle as they take on the opioid epidemic, experiment with water bears, dig into the underbelly of social media and go to war with Canada. Add some Creator Commentary and never-before-seen deleted scenes, and you’ve got a box set you won’t be able to put down.

South Park may have lost some comedic steam and edge over the years but there are still some doozy episodes packed into this season. Always irreverent and perpetually timely, you have to give the guys credit for keeping up with the current news and issues as they lampoon and tackle a whole new set of wacky premises for their 21st outing.
