Disney Santa Buddies: The Legend of Santa Paws [DV&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Craig Anton
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
First off, I have to say that my kids love this film. But they are eight years old and easily pleased. Secondly, the pup voice overs are sweet and the pups are gorgeous of course. Thirdly, the plot and pacing are no more annoying than any other buddy movie and really the Christmas spirit cheer theme is very...heartwarming. So usually all those points would get this film three stars at least

What gets this film a two star review on my part is the fact that as soon as the humans open their mouths, the film goes straight down hill. Christopher Lloyd did a good boo/hiss villain but Santa (the bloke who played Norm in Cheers) is particularly dire: being out acted by a golden retriever… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but..., 13 July 2011
I bought this book second hand from an amazon dealer at a price that I thought was fair. I recieved a well sized hardcover book with plenty of illustrations and a basic written definition of a few schools of Scandinavian style.

So far, so good. However, this book despite being written in the late nineties or early noughties had a distinctly eighties feel to it. Annoyingly I cannot quite pin down the reason for this. That feel may not bother you but it wasn't to my taste.
I was also hoping for a few more pictures of either real or show homes as one sees in magazines perhaps. That did not make much of a showing. What was mostly present instead were a few craft projects that… Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Creepy, 13 July 2011
My 7 year old twin daughters are pretty easy to please when it comes to animation and they quite enjoyed this set of stories.

That said, I didn't like the dvd at all. I disliked the style of drawings: the figures are thin and ghostlike in shape and the movement is very jumpy indeed. Some of the voices are annoying - I was honestly glad when Sleeping Beauty conked out if only to give us a break from her nasal whining and the guy who voiced the beast thought that creepy was the way to go and jazzed up his voice acting with a terrible gurgling growl - it didn't bother my kids but it freaked me out a bit.

The story of Sedna took us into the usual realm of sudden death and… Read more
