Kidzworld reviews two holiday-inspired DVDs you may want to add to the collection. Check it out!

The Snow Queen and A Boo Crew Christmas are two DVDs you may want to check out over Christmas break. Kidzworld has the reviews.

The Snow Queen

The Snow Queen In this adaptation of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, a mother and her daughter, Gerda, take in a beggar boy during a bitter cold winter. The boy, Kay, has his eye poked by a shard of ice, turning his heart cold. Then he disappears, kidnapped by the Snow Queen and taken to her palace in the frozen North. Gerda sets out on a magical journey to save her friend. Along the way she comes across helpful ravens, talking flowers, moving statues, and kind reindeer, as she travels through strange lands. Will Gerda be able to rescue Kay from the Snow Queen's clutches? You'll have to watch to find out.

DVD Features

This DVD comes with only one extra, a Making Of featurette. Since the movie is such a mixture of music, animation, and live action, it makes for an interesting look at production. You'll probably only watch it once though.

Bottom Line

Visually this movie is very appealing. A lot of the backgrounds are animation and, once you get used to them, they give the story a magical feel. Music plays a big role as well, and enhances the fairy tale nature of the film. At only an hour long, this movie is just pretty and different enough from the regular holiday fare to definitely deserve a rental.

Rating:4

A Boo Crew Christmas

A Boo Crew Christmas Created by the Wayans brothers, D Roc and the Boo Crew are at that age when they start to wonder if Santa Claus really exists. While waiting to sit on Santa's lap at the mall, the crew sees a little boy named Gavin whose selfless Christmas wishes put the true meaning of the holiday back into perspective. Can the kids work together to make this Christmas a merry one for everyone?

DVD Features

The movie is 24 minutes long and has no special features, although you can change the language if necessary.

Bottom Line

This DVD is really just a Christmas episode of a cartoon you may have never seen before. The Boo Crew is like a cross between Fat Albert and Peanuts characters, which isn't necessarily a good or bad thing, depending on your taste in cartoon characters. The humor is pretty broad so both kids and parents should have some laughs while learning a fairly traditional Christmas lesson. There isn't much here to make this DVD worth buying, but adding this into your holiday rentals isn't a bad idea at all.
