Hello, dads and moms. I’ve been dealing with Internet connectivity problems since Thanksgiving. When I have Internet, my download speed is only 1 Mbps. Way too slow. It’s supposed to be in the 25-30 Mbps range. Then are times I can’t even connect to the Internet. Anyways, I have three winner announcements today. But first, below are the current and upcoming giveaways on my dad blog.
- A Doggone Christmas DVD Giveaway (ends December 8th)
- Secret Life of Pets Giveaway (coming soon)
- HBO’s Quarry Season 1 Giveaway (coming soon)
- Nessie & Me Giveaway (coming soon)
The latest installment of the Bourne series is coming out soon on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. The movie is awesome. There’s a lot of action, mystery and drama in the new Jason Bourne movie. And for once, most of the story actually takes place in the United States. After opting out of the last movie, Matt Damon returns to reprise his role as the kick-ass Jason Bourne. He’s perfect for the role and makes me want to be him. The PG-13 rated 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. Note: 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.
