Watching movies together is a great way to spend time with loved one, so why not make the most of rainy weekends by catching up on magical movies - from classics, to the latest new releases.
HMV has long been the 'go-to' superstore for the latest and greatest dvds and boxsets, so head to Hmv.com to choose from the massive movie collection.
You can save cash on dvds and Blu-rays at Hmv with a Hmv discount code from 5hop5.co.uk. As the place to find all the best vouchers, offers and deals, 5hop5.co.uk is an essential pre-shopping spree stop. So save money while stocking your dvd library and you'll enjoy great savings as well as great films. The only hard bit is choosing what to watch first, so here are some ideas:
With the Kids
While we eagerly await the release of Cars 2 on November 21st, we can get our Disney fix with the newly re-released The Lion King. Available on dvd, blu-ray and 3D blu-ray, the adventures of Simba, Timone and Pumba will warm the hearts of the whole family. To celebrate The Lion Kings re-release, HMV is also running a competition to win tickets to see the musical in London, so head to HMV.com to enter.
Other fab family dvds out this autumn include The Smurfs, Kung Fu Panda 2, and the hilarious Zookeeper, so there's plenty of choice to keep the kids happy in the run up to Christmas.
That awkward pre-teen age can be difficult to cater for film wise, with the ambiguous 12A rating not making things any easier for parents. The Harry Potter movies, Twilights, Pirates of the Caribbean and the Transformers trilogy are good bets, but steer tweens clear of Super 8 and X Men First Class as both these 12A's drop a big fat F bomb in the middle of the, otherwise aimed at the early teens market, action.
If you have 15 and overs in your family then you may assume that that opens up your family film options considerably. However, films with graphic scenes of a sexual nature or very adult themes such as drugs could make extremely awkward viewing for both you and your teenager. Super 8 is a good choice, or go for a comedy that's harmless but still adult such as Bridesmaids or The Hangover 2.
Alternatively, box sets of television comedies make great viewing with older teenagers, so make yourself popular by purchasing An Idiot Abroad 2, Modern Family Season 2 or South Park Season 13.
For the Girls
When the wind and rain make going out less than an appealing prospect, why not get the girls round for a movie night and indulge all of your guilty girly viewing pleasures.
Girly comedies like Bridesmaids or He's Just Not That Into You are perfect for a fun night in, or enjoy the fashion and friendships in the Sex and the City films.
Alternatively, why not go retro with a female favourite like Grease, Pretty Woman or Dirty Dancing? HMV has all of these classics and more in its extensive dvd library.
For the Boys
There are some great box sets for the boys at HMV, so why not get the lads round, get the beer flowing and have a movie marathon? The Ultimate Bourne Collection is a good choice; or for classic action why not crack open the Batman Anthology, The Matrix boxset, The Rocky Complete Saga or The Godfather Trilogy?
For a Cosy Night In
Cosy nights in call for either romance or horror. Both have the desired effect of encouraging maximum cuddling and snuggling. In the romantic category The Notebook and The Time Travellers Wife are sure to melt even the hardest hearts, or for horror, new release Insidious will have you reaching for the cushions to hide behind. Or, why not combine the two genres with clever horror/romance Never Let Me Go?
Whoever will be keeping you company on cold winter's nights, you'll find the perfect dvd or blu-ray at HMV to suit all tastes. Alternatively, why not plan a solo night in where you can indulge in all of your guilty movie pleasures, without worrying about anyone else?
