I have a fun giveaway for you ogres out there. Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Dreamworks Animation, I’m giving away the Shrek Anniversary Edition on my dad blog.

Shrek Anniversary Edition is available now on Digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 7th. The Shrek 4-Movie Collection is also available.

There’s a new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse coming out on DVD. It’s called Mickey’s Sport-Y-Thon. The DVD features six episodes (over 2 hours). In the episodes, Disney characters compete in various sports activities. In the process they learn about teamwork and sportsmanship. And for a limited time, the DVD includes a Golden Mickey Medal. Neat, right? My kids and I watched it over the weekend. We enjoyed it — especially my youngest child (age seven). Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Sport-Y-Thon is available now on DVD.
I watched The Finest Hours (sweepstakes) over the weekend. The movie is a suspenseful story about the greatest small-boat rescue in Coast Guard history. The film is based on true events that took place in 1952. The story starts off as a love story, but then quickly turns into a disaster drama. I enjoyed the movie. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I really cared for the characters. The film is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of peril. The Finest Hours will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on May 24th.

The Angry Birds Movie is finally here. We actually saw the new film based on the Angry Birds video games last Saturday. The Angry Birds Movie is one of those films that is more entertaining for young kids than adults. I enjoyed the animated movie, but my youngest son (age seven) really loved the film. He’s a big Angry Birds nut and he’s been so excited about the new movie. It did not disappoint him. When he got home, he got right back into the Angry Birds universe with his Angry Birds toys. The Angry Birds Movie (Sony Pictures) will open in theaters tonight. BTW, the film is rated PG for rude humor and action.
A lot of people think about going to the water park on a hot day, but water parks are also fun on rainy days. At least that has been our experience. We went to Evergreen Wings and Waves Waterpark over the weekend. It was an awesome experience for several reasons. First, it was rainy and in the 50’s outside. But inside the water park it was in the balmy 80’s. Second, it was a ton fun to go shooting down the fast slides from a Boeing 747 aircraft sitting on the roof of the building. And finally, we also got to check out all the cool airplanes in the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum right next door.
