MY THOUGHTS

The movie, Gnomeo & Juliet, is a really cute movie!  I loved the characters, the songs, and the overall storyline.  If you have a Blu-ray player, I highly recommend the 2-Disc Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack.  There are even more features on the Blu-ray disc that you’ll enjoy.  I liked the bonus feature entitled, “Elton Builds a Garden,” as well as the “Crocodile Rock” Music Video, featuring Elton John an Nelly Furtado.  Plus, on the Blu-ray disc, you can enjoy Alternate Endings, as well as an Alternate Opening, 1 Alternate Scene, and 6 Deleted Scenes!  If you didn’t get a chance to see Gnomeo & Juliet in theaters, be sure to check it out on Blu-ray and DVD on May 24th, 2011.  A big thanks goes to Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment for this DVD review opportunity!
