Missing Link is a nice little stop-motion animated film with a standard but still entertaining story to go along with a nice voice cast which includes Hugh Jackman, Zoe Saldana and Zach Galifianakis; I would say this worth a rental.

Puss in Boots is a good entry in DreamWorks Animation catalogue, though I’d hardly call it a classic. Even so, the voice talents are all fantastic, the animation top notch and this Blu-ray release offers up a decent amount of features and excellent video and audio transfers. If you liked the character in his three previous appearances, then you’ll enjoy him here as well.
