I watched Joy last night. The Twentieth Century Fox film is based on the true story of Joy Mangano. In the movie, Joy invents the self-wringing Miracle Mop. The film is about the struggles Joy went through to develop and market her revolutionary mop. I liked the movie — mainly because Jennifer Lawrence was good in the film. Plus I enjoy movies based on true stories. Joy is available now in Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, DVD and Digital HD. Note: Joy is rated PG-13 for brief strong language.
It’s another slow week for new DVD and Blu-ray movies.

I’ve seen The Choice and enjoyed it (review). Continue reading for a summary of the new Blu-rays and DVDs for this week.
Hello, dads and moms. I’m working on my deck roof today and then I have another volleyball tournament on Sunday. Anyways, I have a winner announcement today. But first, below are upcoming contests on my dad blog.

Jennifer Lawrence has a new movie coming out soon on Digital HD, Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD and DVD. Her film is called Joy. The film is a dynamic story of a family across four generations, and the woman who would go from dysfunction to dynasty because of it. I have not seen it yet, but I’ve heard it’s good. According to the press material, Joy is a great film for girls night in, mother/daughter movie night, or a date night away from the kids. Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, I’m giving away the Joy Blu-ray on my dad blog. Joy will be available in Digital HD on Friday (April 8th), and on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD on May 3th — just in time for Mother’s Day.
