Shrek (PG, closed captions available, 4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $6.99)
When a green ogre called Shrek discovers his swamp has been ‘swamped’ with all sorts of fairytale creatures by the scheming Lord Farquaad, Shrek sets out, with a very loud donkey by his side, to ‘persuade’ Farquaad to give his swamp back. Instead, a deal is made.
Farquaad, who wants to become the King, sends Shrek to rescue Princess Fiona, who is waiting for her one true love. But once they head back with Fiona, it starts to become apparent that not only does Shrek like Fiona, but Fiona is keeping something secret. - Written by Film_Fan
This is the extraordinary tale of two brothers named Moses and Ramses, one born of royal blood, and one an orphan with a secret past.
Growing up the best of friends, they share a strong bond of free-spirited youth and good-natured rivalry.
But the truth will ultimately set them at odds, as one becomes the ruler of the most powerful empire on earth, and the other the chosen leader of his people!
Their final confrontation will forever change their lives and the world. - Written by Anthony Pereyra
Spirit (G, closed captions available, 4.5/5 stars, currently priced at $6.99)
The mustang stallion Spirit grows up to proudly succeed his father as leader of the Cimarron herd in the unspoiled Wild West. When ‘civilization’ reaches Dakota territory, naive curiosity gets him caught by cowboys and sold to the US Cavalry.
Its method of training by breaking a horse fails utterly on him. Just when the colonel intends to shoot Spirit, the equally indomitable captured young Lakota brave, Little Creek, escapes on his back.
He also tricks [the horse] into a corral with his beloved mare, but shows respect and wins some trust. As the railroad arrives, the Indian village is wrecked and Spirit gets captured for use as a draft-horse.
When the stallion realizes this project threatens his whole world, he escapes and unleashes the fury of a force of nature, ultimately teaming up with Little Creek. - Written by KGF Vissers
