I recently watch the third season of The Americans on DVD. The series is as good as ever. I love the series about two Russian spies posing as an American couple in the Washington D.C. area. The acting and story are both excellent. But what I love best about the show is that it’s so realistic and fits in with the Cold War era of the Reagan administration. In addition, I care about the main characters. They are Russian spies and are essentially the bad guys. But I can’t help but root for them. They are very likable and they have to deal with the same issues as most American parents of teenagers. The Americans Season 3 (Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment) is available now on DVD and digital HD. The 450-minute DVD set includes all 13 episodes of season three on four discs. BTW, I received the DVD set for review on my blog.
We don’t have cable so my kids can’t watch Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness on Nickelodeon. Fortunately, DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment sent my children the new Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness – The Scorpion Sting DVD. The latest title includes seven episodes of the show, a bonus feature (World of DreamWorks Animation) and a game app (Scorpion Maze). My kids are fans of Kung Fu Panda, so they loved the DVD. I watched some of the episodes and enjoyed them too. Po is still funny as the chunky hero. Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness – The Scorpion Sting is available now on DVD.
DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment sent us the new Monsters vs Aliens DVD. It’s called Monsters vs Aliens: Cloning Around. It’s been several years since I saw the Monsters vs Aliens. I recognized the main characters, but I was a little hazy on their background until I watched the first episode. The Nickelodeon series is funny and has a sci-fi theme. Two great combinations in my opinion. The Monsters vs Aliens: Cloning Around is available now on DVD.
My kids and I love Kung Fu Panda and Monsters vs Aliens. If your kids love them too, then today might be your lucky day. Thanks to DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, I’m giving away two DVDs on my dad blog: Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness – The Scorpion Sting and Monsters Vs Aliens: Cloning Around. Both titles would be great additions to your Halloween movies collection. The new Kung Fu Panda and Monsters vs Aliens DVDs are available now at a store near you.
My kids and I are looking forward to watching The Croods next week. We missed it at the theaters last summer, but we’ve heard it’s entertaining. The movie is about a pre-historic family who sets out to explore a spectacular landscape filled with fantastic creatures and strange surprises. The Croods will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on October 1st. If you can’t wait until next Tuesday, you can watch it now via Digital HD. And thanks to 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, I’m giving away a Croods prize pack (The Croods Blu-ray and a small Belt plush) on my dad blog.
Good morning dads and moms. I have a million and one things to do this weekend. Before I tackle my million and one things, I have two winner announcements this morning. But first, here are the current open giveaways on my giveaway blogs:
I have an awesome giveaway for fans of the hit comedy, Modern Family. The TV series has won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series. Thanks to 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, I’m giving away two copies of Modern Family: The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray on my dad blog. Sweet, right? BTW, season four of Modern Family will be available on DVD and Blu-ray next Tuesday, September 24, 2013.
Thanks to 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, I’m giving away two Blu-ray copies of Beasts of the Southern Wild on my dad blog. I have not seen the movie yet, but according to the press material, the movie is centered on a father/daughter relationship and the wisdom Wink instills in his daughter, Hushpuppy. Beasts of the Southern Wild will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on December 4th.
I’m giving away the new Martha Marcy May Marlene DVD. Fox Searchlight Pictures accidentally sent me two Blu-ray copies of Martha Marcy May Marlene. I could send one copy back, but if I’m going to pay for shipping, I might as well send the movie to a reader of my dad blog. I just got the movie and have not seen it yet, but I’ve heard good things about Martha Marcy May Marlene. I hope to watch it this week and have a review posted soon. [Update: the review is up.]
