If you’re a fan of Blinky Bill, then you’ll be happy to know Blinky Bill: The Movie is coming out on Blu-ray and DVD on October 11th. For those of you who don’t know (like me) Blinky Bill is a koala. The character is based on a book series and is one of Australia’s most recognized characters. Shout! Factory Kids sent me Blinky Bill: The Movie for review on my dad blog. I thought the animated film was OK, but my two youngest children loved it. The movie even made them laugh from time to time. BTW, Blinky Bill is rated PG and is family approved by The Dove Foundation.
New movies this weekend include The Girl on the Train (Emily Blunt), The Birth of a Nation (Nate Parker), Friend Request (Alycia Debnam-Carey), Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life (Griffin Gluck), Being 17 (Kacey Mottet Klein), Blinky Bill (animated), The Greasy Strangler (Michael St. Michaels), Mirzya (Harshvardhan Kapoor), and Voiceless (Rusty Joiner).
