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.

Rock Dog (giveaway) is an animated film about a guard dog (Bodi) that wants to become a musician. His father is against this, but Bodi follows his heart and his dream eventually does come true.

Rock Dog is available now on digital HD and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on May 23rd. Note: I received a movie for review on my blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.

The Space Between Us is a light drama with a touch of romance and sci-fi. It’s about a human boy born on Mars who returns to Earth. He hooks up with his penpal girlfriend and goes on a quest to find his father. It’s essentially a coming-of-age story about a boy who grew up in a sheltered environment and a girl that doesn’t quite fit in at school. Even though I was expecting a sci-fi story, I still enjoyed the movie because I liked the interaction between the two main characters. The Space Between Us is available now on digital HD and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on May 16th. Note: Universal Pictures Home Entertainment sent me a movie for review on my dad blog.
