My kids and I recently watched The Secret Life of Pets. We loved the animated film so much that we’ve watched it twice already. The movie is funny and the characters are cute. The story idea is similar to Toy Story. When the owners are away, the pets talk and hang out with each. But when the owners return, they transform back into cute pets. The Secret Life of Pets is available on Digital HD now and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand December 6th. Note: Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment sent me the movie for review on my dad blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.

I’m excited about the upcoming release of Jason Bourne. Matt Damon is back in the latest installment of the series. I like Jeremy Renner, but I think Matt is better in this series. Thanks to Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, I’m giving away the Jason Bourne Blu-ray on my dad blog. Jason Bourne is available now on digital HD, and will be available on on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and on demand on December 6th. BTW, Jason Bourne features DTS:X and DTS Headphone:X immersive audio technologies that replicate and convey the fluid movement of sound to create a richer experience than previously possible by moving sound to precisely where the mixer placed it.
The kids and I are excited about the upcoming release of Kubo and the Two Strings (review). We loved it when we saw the animated film earlier in the year. We can’t wait to see it again. It’s a really good movie. As I mentioned previously, I went on a set tour at Laika Studios and was very impressed. BTW, one of the people who worked on the special effects for the movie was at our Halloween party last month. Small world. And thanks to Laika Studios and Focus Features, I’m giving away four copies of the movie on my dad blog. Kubo and the Two Strings will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on November 22th.

Season six of Game of Thrones will be out on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD this week. I love this show. The characters are interesting, the story is fantastic, and the plot is very unpredictable. And if you’ve seen the HBO series, then you know the writers are not afraid of killing off main characters — including popular characters I like. In fact, season five ended with the apparent death of Jon Snow. Anyways, I love season six of Game of Thrones. It’s just as good as the previous seasons. I can’t wait to see season seven. BTW, Game of Thrones: The Complete Sixth Season will make an excellent gift for a fan of the series.
Snowtime! (review) rolled out on Blu-ray and DVD this week. On the surface, the story is about an epic snowball fight. But there’s actually a more serious message to go with the story.

Snowtime also features songs by Celine Dion, Simple Plan, Walk Off The Earth, Marie-Mai and Groenland. Thanks to Shout! Factory, I’m giving away the Snowtime! Blu-ray on my dad blog.

Nine Lives is a funny story about a man who turns into a cat.

The two storylines are actually intertwined and is the key to getting his real body back. Nine Lives (giveaway) is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital HD.

Bad Moms (giveaway) is a story about a mom who pushes back against the system. She does way too much for her children and thinks too much are expected of moms. The storyline is predictable, but it’s worth watching if you are in the mood for an R-rated comedy. Bad Moms is available on Digital HD now, and will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on November 1st. Continue reading to learn five things about the Bad Moms movie.
Ghostbusters is available now on Blu-ray and DVD. To help promote the release, Walmart, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Mars, Wrigley and Kellogg’s are teaming up for the annual Boo It Forward campaign. The idea is to make a bundle of goodies, and then secretly deliver it to someone. The recipient then plays it forward by putting together their own little treat bundle and secretly giving it to someone else.
