Movie Time: The Great Mouse Detective

With it being so close to Halloween there are lots of great movies coming out of DVD. A few weeks ago, October 9, Disney released The Great Mouse Detective on Blu-Ray and HD Digital for the first time!

Now I don't know how many of you know about the Great Mouse Detective but it's one of the lesser talked about Disney Animated movies. However, if you haven't seen it, it's one you should really add to your list. Here's a little bit more about the movie:

When the diabolical Professor Ratigan kidnaps London’s master toymaker, the brilliant Basil of Baker Street and his trusted sidekick Dawson try to elude the ultimate trap and foil the perfect crime. This family classic on Disney Blu-ray proves big heroes come in small packages.
My Take: Honestly, I'm not even sure if I have ever seen this movie. I'm sure I did when I was growing up but I didn't really remember it. So when I sat down to watch it with the kids I was in for a real treat. It's nothing like watching Basil (The Great Mouse Detective himself) running around solving a mystery quite like the Great Sherlock Holmes. And of course he has his trusty sidekick, Dr. Dawson by his side Quite like Holmes has Watson! It's an adventure totally worth getting entangled in! And with the ending you would have thought Disney would have made a sequel. It leaves it wide open for many more adventures for the mice!

My kids also loved the movie. Nothing like some mice chasing a rat! Also, the mystery was easy for them to understand and they loved how the villain is caught! Just check out this clip:

Buy it: The Great Mouse Detective is available now in the Mystery in the Mist Edition 2 disc Blu-Ray Combo Pack for the price of $29.99US and $35.99CAN. Go get yours now!
