Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is re-releasing A League of Their Own on Blu-ray on April 18th. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched this movie. I liked it 25 years ago, and I still think it’s excellent after watching it again recently. The story is about two sisters joining the first women baseball team. It’s a humorous drama, but I think most parents will appreciate the underlying message that women can live their dream.
Gifted is a film about a single man raising a child prodigy in a heartwarming story from director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) that asks, how do you create an ordinary life for an extraordinary girl? I have not seen the movie yet, but I’ve heard it’s good. Thanks to Fox Searchlight, you can see Gifted at a theater near you. I’ve giving ten prize packs consisting of run-of-engagement movie passes and promotional swag. Note: my giveaway is limited to readers with mailing addresses in the state of Oregon and Washington. Gifted opens this Friday in select theaters. It will open nationwide on April 12th.

I saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Lucasfilm) for the second time recently. The first time was at the theater and the second time was via Disney Movies Anywhere and Roku. I’m a big Star Wars fan and I really enjoyed the sci-fi film. Unlike the other Star Wars movies I’ve seen, Rogue One is a standalone story. Remember the very first Star Wars film (A New Hope)? In the story, Luke destroys the Death Star thanks to plans stolen by the rebels. Rogue One is about the rebels who stole the plans that revealed the weakness in the Death Star. Note: I received a movie kit for reviewing the film on my blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.

Sing isn’t in stores yet, but we’re already seen the Blu-ray twice. We love the animated musical comedy. The film kinda of reminds me of American Idol, but better. The story is interesting and the singing is outstanding (you’ll want to sing along!). In my opinion, Sing is fun for the entire family. As an added bonus, the Special Edition Blu-ray and DVD include three mini-movies (my favorite is Gunter Babysits). And thanks to Universal Studios Home Entertainment and Illumination Entertainment, a reader of my dad blog will win a Sing Blu-ray. Sing-tastic! Sing will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on March 21st.

Sing (Illumination Entertainment and Universal Studios Home Entertainment) will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on March 21st. Note: the giveaway is limited to readers in Oregon and Washington. I have another Sing giveaway for the rest of you in a few days.
Shout! Factory released Country Crush today. It’s a musical featuring country music. The movie is about about an aspiring singer (Nancy) who meets a country mechanic (Charlie). Even though Nancy has a boyfriend, Nancy and Charlie are drawn together. But then Nancy’s career gets in the way and the two struggle to stay together. The city-girl meets country-boy storyline is predictable, but you can’t help but root for them. And the music is awesome and I’m not even a country fan. Country Crush is available exclusively at Walmart. Thanks to Shout! Factory, I’m giving away the Country Crush DVD on my dad blog.
