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.
Hey Star Wars fan! If the Force is strong in your family, come join the Rogue One Digital HD Twitter Party (I think there will be prizes). The social media party will take place Sunday (March 26) at 4 pm PST (7 pm EST). Follow the hashtag #RogueOneDigital. The co-hosts are @MagicalSiblings and @dawnchats. I’m on #TeamEmpire and will be battling the do-gooders rebels in an epic battle in a galaxy far, far away. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is available now on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere. Rogue One will out on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On-Demand on April 4th. Note: I received a movie kit for taking part in the Twitter Party. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.
The fourth installment of Open Season will be released on Tuesday. The latest title is called Open Season: Scared Silly, which is a little more original than adding 2 and 3 after Open Season like the other two sequels. In Scared Silly, which is rated PG, Elliot decides to scare the fear out of Boog. I thought this was a bit ironic because I don’t think Elliot is brave either. I thought the animated film was a OK, but my kids love the movie. They thought it was really funny. Open Season is one of those series children will like more than adults will. Open Season: Scared Silly will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD on Tuesday, March 8th. BTW, I received a Blu-ray for review on my dad blog.
Just posting a quick note to let you know you that Home is available now via Digital HD on Vudu. One of the nice features of Vudu is that can watch a movie on your TV and also on the go on your tablet or other mobile device. BTW, we can’t wait to watch Home this weekend for our Best Family Movie Night Party Ever.
My kids and I watched The Book of Life a few days ago. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent me the Blu-ray for review on my dad blog. The animated movie was a bit crazy at times, but all of us enjoyed it. The story is wonderful, the songs are great, and it’s entertaining. The Book of Life is not one of those films that makes you laugh your head off, but it did have its funny moments. The Book of Life is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital HD. Continue reading to learn five things about the film.
Our family recently went on a Rio road trip. OK, it was actually just a day trip from Portland down to Corvallis and Marys Peak (highest peak in the Oregon Coast Range). My oldest child will be a freshman in high school this fall, so I wanted to introduce her to my alma mater, Oregon State University. She still has four years to decide where she wants to go to college, but I figure I should start the brainwashing as early as possible. The last thing I want to see happen is for my daughter to become an Oregon Duck, my school’s rival to the south. Anyway, this post isn’t about selecting a college. I’m actually sharing some road survival trips for parents of young kids.
It looks like there is another player for digital HD streaming: M-Go. To be honest, I did not know anything about them until I received a promo code to review Walking with Dinosaurs on M-Go. BTW, the movie won’t be able available on Blu-ray or DVD until next Tuesday, but you can watch it now in digital HD via M-Go. With a streaming service like M-Go, not only can you watch Walking with Dinosaurs before it arrives in stores, but you can also watch the movie on the go with the kids.
