GNOMEO & JULIET Blu-Ray Review

Gnomeo & Juliet will be for sale on Tuesday the 24th of May. I was given a Blu-ray copy of this adorable movie to review. In Gnomeo & Juliet, it is somewhat like the classic tale by Shakespeare but with a very cute twist. It does not go into all of that English poetic dialogue, instead it tells the story from a different view, a view that will not bore your children. It tells the epic tale of the star crossed lovers in a way that your children will not only understand, but they will love. We received this movie about a week ago, and my kids have watched it over and over again in that order! I must admit, this movie is not what I expected it to be. It is very good and I too have watched it more than once with the kids! There are two houses divided by hate, the house of Montegue and the house of Capulet. The fued has been a long fued and in all its reds against blues. The fued not only affects the homes but the yard ornaments as well. And that is where the classic tale of the two lovers begins. I love that Elton John does the music and how there are parts where his own personal character and style is incorporated into the movie. I also love how they keep the realistic sound of glasses clinking against glass in parts to remind you that they are yard gnomes. I also love how these adorable little gnomes have a redneck side!! This Blu-ray combo pack has great bonus features!! Gnomeo & Juliet is a great family movie and will make a great addition to your Disney Movie Collection!!!
