Moana Digital Movie Party and Review – be daring and connect with your ancestors

Moana Blu-ray

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.

Cut the Strings to Pinocchio with Digital HD

Pinocchio Blu-ray

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.

Jason Bourne 4K Ultra HD Review – Matt Damon is back and is awesome as ever

Jason Bourne (Matt Damon)

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.
