Warner Brothers latest DVD releases

This month we were sent two of the latest Warner brother releases LEGO Hero Factory: Savage Planet   and Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens for Ben to review. Being a typical 5 year old boy, Ben is very into both LEGO and Ben10 so he was thrilled.

The Hero Factory is a place where the most advanced and skilled heroes of
the universe are built with one purpose -- to save the world from evil.
When rookie Rocka responds to a distress signal sent from Aldous Witch,
who has crash-landed on a far-away planet, he suddenly goes missing.
Stormer, Furno, Nex, Bulk and Stringer are sent to find him, only to discover
that Aldous Witch has transformed into the evil Witch Doctor, and that he has
transformed a once beautiful planet into a deadly wasteland set on
destroying everything on it... including the Heroes.

Ten-year-old Ben Tennyson is finally back from his summer vacation, and his
life is a mess! Humiliated by his teacher, harassed by bullies, grounded by
his parents, and cursed with a malfunctioning Omnitrix that's vaporizing his
homework, Ben jumps at the chance to get away from it all at the Total Alien
Immersion training program on the far side of the galaxy.  Little does Ben
know that total immersion means he can never turn human again. Crashing
back to earth and stuck in his alien forms, Ben becomes the target of an allnew evil alien, Retaliator, engaging in a deadly cross-world battle, where
nothing is as it seems.

Although we don't watch a lot of TV in our house, we do love movies! Unless we have other plans, Sunday afternoon is movie afternoon in our house, we make some popcorn and sometimes have a 'living room picnic' then cuddle up on the couch with a movie. Some lovely family time.

Both these movies were a great hit with Ben but I think his favourite  had to be Ben 10, purely for the fact that he is not as familiar with the Hero Factory characters. The LEGO hero factory DVD was split up into episodes so would be handy as something to watch for a short period of time where as the Ben 10  one was a feature length movie with a running time of 70 minutes so caught Ben's attention for longer. At just £7.50 and £5 respectively both these movies would make great stocking fillers this Christmas!
