From a Desperate Father To an Outspoken Teddy Bear: DVD Picks of the Week

To say that you'll be spoilt for choice in the DVD store this weekend would be an understatement!

It’s that time of the week again when you’re contemplating about what to do with your weekend. Well if it’s a DVD night you want, here’s what we’d recommend.

If you feel like:

Hiding Behind a Pillow

Prometheus (15A) – A team of explorers visits a planet but let’s just say they aren’t the only ones there. Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel is a must-watch.


The Descendants (15A) – George Clooney plays a man who is trying to reconnect with his two daughters in this moving comedy drama.

Snuggling up with the little ones

Brave (PG) – Princess Merida wants to make her own decisions in life so decides to go against tradition but she then has to undo a beastly curse.


Ted (16) – In this crude comedy from Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane, Mark Wahlberg plays John Bennett whose childhood teddy bear still follows him around. Mila Kunis also co-stars.

Being glued to the edge of your seat

The Dark Knight Rises (12A) – A fitting end to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises sees the caped crusader (Christian Bale) face his toughest battle yet.
