New Blu-ray and DVD movies this week include Red 2 (Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren), Jobs (Ashton Kutcher), Getaway (Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez), and Grandmaster (Ziyi Zhang, Tony Leung). I have not seen any of the films, but I want to see all four of them. The first on my list is Jobs. It’s about the late founder of Apple. Read on for a summary of the new DVD releases.
New movies this week include The Butler (Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, John Cusack, Jane Fonda), Jobs (Ashton Kutcher), Kick-Ass 2 (Chloë Grace Moretz, Jim Carrey, Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Paranoia (Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman, Liam Hemsworth, Amber Heard), Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck), Approximately Nels Cline, and Austenland (Keri Russell, Jane Seymour). The movie I want to see is Jobs. It’s about the late Steve Jobs, founder of Apple. I learned quite a bit about him when I read his biography last year. I can’t wait to see the film about him. Read on for a summary of the new movie releases for this week.
Monster.com released a new video today. It’s called Wake Up Call and it is very funny. The hilarious and light-hearted video features actor Brian Baumgartner in an office setting as he comforts the employees after they have just been pranked with their wake up call. To help kick off the new Monster.com video, I’m giving away a $25 Visa Gift Card and a Monster Mug (as seen in the video below).
New movies this weekend include Oblivion (Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman), Filly Brown, In the House (Kristin Scott-Thomas), Herman’s House, and Home Run. I saw an early screening of Oblivion and I loved it. The Jobs movie sounds interesting too. The film is about Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple. Read on for a summary of the new film releases.
Over here in Oregon, one in ten people are unemployed. The job market is super tough in the Pacific Northwest. That’s exactly the reason Monster.com launched their Success Stories campaign. They want to let people know that even in a challenging economy, dads and moms are still finding great jobs on Monster. The Monster multimedia campaign is an effort to encourage hope and optimism through the sharing of successful job-search stories and practical advice. And if you submit a career tip or success story to the Monster community, you will be entered in the iPad giveaway on my dad blog (thank you, Monster.com). I’m actually jealous because I can’t win the super cool Apple iPad. Not fair!
When the people over at Barbie emailed me about their “I Can Be” campaign, I wasn’t planning on blogging about voting for Barbie’s next career. After all, this is a manly dad blog, not a girly mom blog. Plus I already blogged about how I was magically changed into a Barbie girl and I really didn’t want to write any more about Barbie.
