Sing is coming out on Blu-ray and DVD next week. I have not seen the animated film yet, but my kids can’t wait to see the movie. To help celebrate the new release, five readers of my blog will each win a prize pack consisting of a Sing DVD/Blu-ray and promotional swag. Awesome, right! 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.
HBO recently released season one of Vice Principals on Blu-ray and DVD. The cable TV show is about two school vice principals scheming to get rid of the new principal. Both VP’s think they should be the principal. The story isn’t very realistic (especially the profanity at school), but the series is funny. If you’re looking for a new series to binge watch, you should definitely check out Vice Principals: The Complete First Season.
Disney is releasing Pinocchio this week. You know how Disney works. They like to pull many of their movies from retailers and store them in their magical vault. Then they release the titles again many years later. This time around, Disney is releasing Pinocchio in stores. And for the first time ever, Pinocchio is available in Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere. That means you can cut the cord and watch the film anywhere without strings. Cool, right? I also like the digital HD option because I don’t have to find a place to store the film. After a couple of decades of collecting DVDs and Blu-rays, I have run out of space on my bookcase. BTW, I received a movie kit for writing this review. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.
HBO is releasing season two of Ballers on Blu-ray and DVD next week. Ballers is about a former football player who now works as a money manager for football players. I love this series. It has a football feel, yet it rarely show athletes playing football. Ballers is more about the characters instead of the game of football. The characters grow on you and you become vested in their lives. Ballers: S2 is available now on digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on January 31st. Note: the series is rated TV-MA for nudity and sex scenes.

Barbie: Video Game Hero will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on January 31st. Continue reading to find out how to win this fun film.

Hello, dads and moms. We got another snow storm a couple of days ago. It was only a couple of inches, but everyone went home at the EXACT same time. As a result, traffic backed up every time a car got stuck. My normal 10-minute commute became almost two hours. BTW, I got stuck too because everyone in front of me got stuck. I ended up walking the last two miles to get home. Aye yai yai. Anyways, I have two winner announcements today. But first, below are the current giveaways on my dad blog.
- Teletubbies Snowball DVD Giveaway (ends December 20th)
- Quarry Season One Digital HD Giveaway (ends December 23rd)
