    Help - I need to choose a DVD for my daughter's 7th birthday party to view at a movie party she wants to hold in the new home theatre I have just installed.
    As we are planning to invite her friends we need the latest release (to impress her friends) - hopefully a movie that is or has just been released in uk- may be a region 1 dvd ? or even better a movie that has not been released in the uk yet.
    My daughters birthday is on 18 July 2004 (its a sunday ) so we are hoping to hold the party on that weekend
    All suggestions welcome - Thanks

    How about Shrek 3D, but you do only get four pairs of 3D glasses, so it may not be a good idea if there a lots of kids viewing. Ice age looks and sounds impressive, so does Monsters inc.

    There aren't many good new releases (region 1) for kids between now and mid-July. Maybe you should try Cheaper By The Dozen, Brother Bear or Finding Nemo? Failing that you could ask your daughter to ask her friends what they want to see! :)

    Checkout playusa or similar retailer and look under the coming soon section ...

    Just sweet-talk the fat bird that works in the video store when you rent out haunted mansion (do not watch it though as it is :censored: ) to give you extra glasses and you'll be sorted. :laugh:

    There's Peter Pan, which might entertain the kids, but apparently it's not brilliant.

    as your kids are only 7 have they seen some of the classic disney movies - Beauty and the Beast or the Lion King (Which is also the best sounding DVD of last year IMO)

    Shrek 3D is crap and is only 15 minutes long - so i'd avoid that unless you want lots of 7 year olds crying with eyes that hurt.

    I second that kids just watch it again and again.

    Or this series of cartoons that they may never have seen before here.

    Brother bear is pretty impressive on a big screen, but it feels more like a boys movie than a girls film :/

    I'd go with Lion King or Nemo or Beauty and the Beast depending on what shes already seen.

    What about the Tom & Jerry sets? Of course, the Asian ones are the only versions currently available uncut, but unless you're buying it for yourself as well, I doubt the kids would notice if you got a UK version.

    2001: A Space Odyssey. If you've got a proper home cinema set up, this is A piece of PROPER cinema, not film. Although you'll probably enjoy it a bit more than your daughter :laugh:

    I would second that. Ice Age is a bloody good film, and appeals to adults as well as kids. I thoroughly enjoyed it myself, and £5.99, from CD-Wow, is a steal.

    And if the film doesn’t go down too well you should think about setting up a PS2 with eye toy. Collaborative “Wishy Washy” on a big screen is hilarious fun for a childrens party.
