Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

I absolutely love the Night at the Museum films! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has just released the third movie - Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb on Blu-ray.

Secret of the Tomb brings back all our favourite characters (the late Robin Williams, Owen Williams, Steve Coogan and more) in their magical roles. But, the magic that brings the museum to life at night is fading....and it's up to Larry (Ben Stiller - I love his deadpan delivery) to save it. And to do that, he has to travel to the British Museum in England. Brits Rebel Wilson, Ricky Gervais and Dan Stevens (a scene stealer as Sir Lancelot) join the cast. Cameos from Mickey Rooney and Dick Van Dyke were touching.

Secret of the Tomb is perfect for all viewers - families and adults. I fall into that latter category. My husband and I watched it on the weekend and absolutely enjoyed it. It's just plain fun and totally entertaining. There are some sly jokes that only adults will get, but the fun is for everyone. This cast full of comedians guarantees hilarity. I'm always blown away by the animation. Director Shawn Levy takes things a step further this time and shoots a scene using M.C. Escher's Relativity print that was simply amazing.

There's tons of other extras as well - 90 minutes more including:

**Five More Deleted and Extended Scenes**The Theory of Relativity
**Becoming Laaa(Larry's alter ego) **A Day in the Afterlife
**The Home of History: Behind the Scenes of The British Museum
**Fight at the Museum **Creating Visual Effects**Audio Commentary by Shawn Levy.

We had just as much fun watching how the film was made and the behind the scenes magic! Sadly this is the last entry in this franchise. I was pleasantly surprised when I found a code to download the digital HD version of either the first or second movie free.  Lots of action, adventure and laughs included! I kinda wish there was a magical museum.....until then, I'll happily rewatch these movies.Absolutely recommended to own! (as are the first two)

98 minutes PG
