We have just joined Tesco DVD hire thingy - only 2 a month for now TBH I couldn't decide what to watch and when we would have the time!

So am now looking for DVDs to add to my list. ATM we like to watch them as a family - so wondering if anyone has any recommends.

Some of our choices are

Wire - box set DH choice
Madagascar - Owens Choice
Max Payne - Dh and Owen
Ghost Town - Owen
The Myth - Owen
Yes Man - Owen

...I have not selected any as I have 4 dvds to watch - which are girly and need to have time to watch them!

I'm terrible as I am not really into chick flicks as they say...

I like things like 'The Day After Tomorrow' 'Jumper' Transporter 1,2 & 3' plus things like 'Cars' 'Horton Hears A Who' 'Toy Story' and more..

So... not sure if they are something you might watch ??

I can recommend Marley and me when it comes out and Slumdog.

And another tip, we were members of tesco dvd for a while but their service was a bit shoddy so we canceled it. 3 months later we got a voucher for 3 months free. We decided their service wasn't that shoddy if you weren't paying for it :wink: and signed up for the trial period. We canceled it before it ran out and it didn't cost us anything. 3 months later we got a voucher for 3 months free, we are on our third voucher...

...I will look out for that. I think we are a bit soon for Marley and me.

I thought over the summer months 2 a month was enough - but might upgrade to me when the winter comes!

Thanks for the recommends - will check them out.

Does anyone else rent DVDs - maybe we could review them....

We don't rent...we do tend to buy but only once a film is on a good offer.

We watched Taken last night!!! :roll:

loved Bridge to Terabythia
went to see Inkheart with kiddies, Jack liked it but it was a bit beyond Amelia...(didn't help that naughty mummy left Amelia's glasses in the hall! :oops: )
another (older) family one may be Race to Witch Mountain-saw that at piccies, aliens, car chases, spaceships...Chris loved that too!LOL

Saw trailer for The day the earth stood still...that appeals but not sure about child suitabilitiy.

We had a free trial for Lovefilm and have cancelled already..

We asked for Ratattouli and Crank... Ratattouli came first... cracked disk, so returned...

Then Ratatoulli and Crank came.. Ratattouli stopped at chapter 10 and no matter what you did you couldn't carry on.. and couldn't even go further on the scene selection.. and Crank.. was cracked..

You'd think they would check a little better before sending out.. especially on a free trial where you are thinking of joining...

So we'll just continue buying from Play.com.. it works out a lot cheaper in the long run and less hassle..

We buy them too - but we have so many it seems such a waste. Paul bought Taken a few weeks back and we thought it was good too.

We actually got Madagascar from Tesco at the weekend and it was fine. It is only £3.80 a month for 2 dvds so thought it wasn't bad....will report back when we get the next one!

I will have to look up the other ones you mentioned Adele

We watched Taken last night, which was good, but Liam Neeson is starting to look a bit old now. Humph. Need to post that back today.

And I've just had an email to say that we are getting the Order Up game on the Wii, which was one of my lowest priority items but there you go. Will have to report back.

My friend up the road uses the Amazon rental thing - she sometimes passes a film along to us if she thinks we'd like it. Can't do family recommends I'm afraid but just thought I'd chuck their name into the mix as there've been no problems with the discs or the service.
