The Finest Hours Blu-ray Review – it’s based on the greatest small-boat rescue in Coast Guard history

The Finest Hours | The Walt Disney Studios

I watched The Finest Hours (sweepstakes) over the weekend. The movie is a suspenseful story about the greatest small-boat rescue in Coast Guard history. The film is based on true events that took place in 1952. The story starts off as a love story, but then quickly turns into a disaster drama. I enjoyed the movie. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I really cared for the characters. The film is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of peril. The Finest Hours will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on May 24th.

Review and Giveaway ~ Fireman Sam: Heroic Rescue Adventures DVD

Fireman Sam: Heroic Rescue Adventures DVD

Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment sent me the new Fireman Sam: Heroic Rescue Adventures DVD for review and giveaway on my dad blog. My two youngest children really enjoyed the latest Fireman Sam DVD. While watching it, I noticed two things about the stories. First, everyone calls Sam when they need help even though there are several firemen on the show. Second thing I noticed is that one of the firemen looks a little like a young Elvis Presley. His name is even Elvis and he sings in a couple of the episodes. BTW, Fireman Sam: Heroic Rescue Adventures will be available on DVD, and via digital download and video-on-demand on August 7, 2012. It has a list price of $9.98, but you can currently get it for $8.99 on Amazon.

Review: Sports Shield Bandages – for sports loving kids

Sports Shield Bandages for boys

The next time you’re in the first aid section at the store, be sure to check out the new Sports Shield Bandages. They are sports-theme bandages for sports-loving children (dads and moms too). The Jolly Group sent me a box of their soccer theme bandages to review on my dad blog. My kids are not into soccer, but they love these bandages. I think it’s because the bandages has pictures of soccer balls on them. I like them too because they are nicer than the cheap bandages we usually buy.
