The computer glitch from the week of Aug. 6 has the staff a little behind in cataloging, so there’s only one new movie this week, and since it’s an animated title, here are three other older animated films that you’ll love to watch again or watch for the first time. The kids will love them, but adults will too. All are rated PG.
“The Lorax” (2012) This newest animated version of the Dr. Seuss book tells the tale of a 12-year-old boy searching for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax (voiced by Danny DeVito), the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world. There are two copies of this version. When searching the catalog, select “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax.”
“Despicable Me” (2010) When a criminal mastermind (voiced by “The Office” star Steve Carell) uses a trio of orphan girls as pawns for a grand scheme, he finds their love is profoundly changing him for the better.
“Up” (2009) By tying thousands of balloons to his home, 78-year-old Carl (voiced by Ed Asner) sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream to see the wilds of South America. Russell, a wilderness explorer 70 years younger, inadvertently becomes a stowaway.
“The Incredibles” (2004) A family of undercover superheroes, while trying to live the quiet suburban life, are forced into action to save the world. Stars the voice work of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter and Samuel L. Jackson.
