Need movie reviews for kids and family please

I got the Ignatius press film catalog and I save up all year to purchase around this time good family catholic films, some for my DS who is 2.5 yrs old and some for the whole family and some just for DH and I and when DS is older. Below are my pics. I’ve already read the reviews if any on decent and amazon. Can any of you give your 2 cents on any of my pics below. I’m basically looking for an excuse to not buy some on the list and save some money but I’m having a tough time deciding what to eliminate. Let me know. Thanks! (and I know my DS will have to grow into some of the films. that’s ok, I’m in buying mode, have the money now and if I buy now I’ll save on shipping.)

Sorry, I haven’t seen any of the films you list. I have heard good things about Veggie Tales and would recommend videos from that series for your younger chid. I don’t know how strictly they follow church teachings though, but like I’ve said, I’ve heard great things about them.
