The kids and I watched Moana over the weekend. It was my youngest son’s birthday so we made a party out of it. He didn’t want a Polynesian theme party. Instead, he insisted on dinosaurs. He’s into that right now, so we had a dino-theme Moana birthday party. I know that’s a weird combo, but it’s really hard to argue with the birthday boy. Plus we had a really fun time. The little guy laughed a lot during the animated film — especially the scenes with Heihei the chicken. If you have not seen Moana yet, you should. We highly recommend the movie. It’s a fun flick for the entire family. Moana is available now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. Note: I received a movie kit from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (WDSMP) for reviewing Moana on my dad blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.
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.

Have you heard of UltraViolet? It’s a digital service that allows dads, moms, and kids to upload, store and watch their favorite movies whenever and wherever they want. I tried out the service recently with three of Sony Pictures’ UltraViolet movies: Men in Black (I and II), Moneyball, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The movies were great on my Blu-ray player, but I also loved watching the UltraViolet movies on my iPod touch and Nook Color. The playback was very smooth. Best of all, I didn’t have to use software to convert my movies into a format that can be played on my mobile devices. The cloud service took care of that for me, and the process was easy and very quick.

Thanks to Online Poster Printing, I’m giving away a 18″ x 24″ poster print on this dad blog. Online Poster Printing’s products include digital photo enlargements and digital photos on posters for dads and moms. BTW, I used their service to print a 18×24 poster of the Christmas photo below. It was stunning. I didn’t know you could produce a great photo that size from a little Canon A540 (only 6 mega pixels). The outlaws loved the poster print and want another one.
