Children's DVDs

Yay! Roger Holland is back with his highly-useful children's DVD review column for PopMatters. This month the topic is Christmas DVDs and features the best title ever: "Won’t Somebody Please Think of the Children?" Here's the set up:
  • "As our inner Helen Lovejoy knows full well, Christmas Is For Thee Children. So what on earth can we pick up for our kids from Wal-Mart that'll fit into an SUV laden with goodies from the Pottery Barn and beyond? Well, DVDs. Obv. And why not start with the Christmas Classics?"

The winners include Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (50th Birthday Deluxe Remastered Edition) and The Snowman (which earned a rare 10 from Holland). The losers? Power Rangers Mystic Force-Dark Wish (which earned an equally rare 1), Barney-Let’s Make Music (2), and Baby Einstein-Baby’s First Moves (3).
