The marathon includes Invisible Invaders (1959), The Falling (1987), Strange Invaders (1983) and other alientastic films. In addition, I’m giving away an Alien Attack Movie Marathon Pack on my dad blog. BTW, in case you didn’t know, Comet is a free sci-fi network available on television digi-networks and online at CometTV.com. If you haven’t checked Comet out, then you’re missing all the fun cult classics.

Are you still looking for a Father’s Day gift idea for dad? If you are, then you should consider the Google Home personal assistant device or the Google Pixel smartphone. I’ve been demoing the two devices for the last few days. I think they are both awesome and I would love to receive either one (or both) for Father’s Day. BTW, Verizon sent me loaners for review on my dad blog. As some of you know, Verizon’s network gives customers the broadest coverage, best speeds, and unsurpassed reliability.
Kuu Kuu Harajuku is an animated series that follows the fun-filled adventures of band HJ5, through their world of music, fashion and style. The inspiration for this popular animated series came from Grammy Award-winning musician Gwen Stefani. She wanted to create an animated series for girls that encourages and celebrates creative self-expression, imagination and individuality. Thanks to Shout! Factory and DHX Media, I’m giving two copies of the new Kuu Kuu Harajuku: Music, Baby! DVD on my dad blog. The new release is available now on DVD and airs on Nickelodeon.
If you’re looking for a Father’s Day gift idea, you should definitely consider giving dad an indoor skydiving package with iFly. I went to iFly with some co-works earlier in the year and we loved it. The experience is fun and totally cool. I think iFly would be something most dads would love to try. And until June 18th (Father’s Day), you can even save up to $50 on a package or voucher.
Check out the cute photo of my youngest daughter in a Belle costume. Disney gave me the gown and accessories to celebrate the release of Beauty and the Beast. My oldest daughter has seen the movie three times already. She really loves it. I really like the film too. It’s a love story and a musical with wonderful songs. I also like the messages in the movie: inner beauty is more important than how you look on the outside, the right person can bring out the best in you, and a woman doesn’t have to settle for just any man to be happy. The film is excellent and I think everyone will enjoy it. Beauty and the Beast is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital HD. Note: Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (WDSMP) sent me a Blu-ray to review on my dad blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.

Did you know June is Garage Door Safety month? Well, it is. In honor of Garage Door Safety month, the International Door Association (IDA) has a new video offering homeowners a quick primer about their garage door and tips to keep the door operating safely and efficiently. I just watched the video (see below) and I plan on doing my semi-annual lubrications of hinges, rollers and springs this weekend. That’s something any homeowner can do. But for major repairs, I’m leaving that to the professionals as the IDA video suggested. And thanks to the International Door Association, I’m giving away a $25 Visa gift card on my dad blog.
There’s a new My Little Pony coming out on DVD. The latest installment is called My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Twilight And Starlight. Thanks to Shout!

Max is back in a new movie. In the new film (Max 2 White House Hero) Max has a new assignment that brings him to Washington D.C. where he’s on a highly-sensitive mission that will push Max’s specialized skills, intelligence and loyalty to the test. And thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, I’m giving away the Max 2 Blu-ray on my blog. Max 2 White House Hero is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital HD. Note: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray for this blog post. The opinions I share are my own.
