Can you believe it’s been 15 years since the first Shrek movie came out? It’s true. I use to watch Shrek over and over again on DVD with my oldest child when she was just a toddler. Now she’s going to turn 16 on Monday. When you’re a parent, time really flies, right? Anyways, we had a fun Shrek swampathon and watched all four Shrek movies. My youngest ogre is only seven, and has not seen Shrek before. Like his oldest sister before him, he loves Shrek. In my opinion, Shrek is one of the best animated films ever. It’s very entertaining for both kids and adults. The 15th Anniversary Shrek and the Shrek 4-Movie Collection are available now on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and DreamWorks Animation.
Hello, dads and moms. It’s going to be super hot this weekend — close to 100 on Saturday and Sunday. Just my luck. I’m installing roof shingles this weekend. Anyways, I have two winner announcements today. But first, below are the current contests on my dad blog.
I have a fun giveaway for you ogres out there. Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Dreamworks Animation, I’m giving away the Shrek Anniversary Edition on my dad blog. We saw the animated movie 15 years ago. It was and still is a big hit at our house. We even own the title. BTW, there are actually four Shrek films. We love all of them. Shrek Anniversary Edition is available now on Digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 7th. The Shrek 4-Movie Collection is also available.
Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, I’m giving away a copy of Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas on my dad blog. The kids and I saw this animated feature on Thanksgiving. It’s short, but the kids thought it was hilarious. Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas is a fun stocking stuffer for a little one. It’s available now on DVD and Blu-ray combo pack (Blu-ray, DVD and digital copy with extra features). BTW, Fox is releasing a new full-featured Ice Age movie this summer. Ice Age: Continental Drift will open in theaters everywhere on July 13, 2012 in 3D.
My little first grader and I saw a free movie screening of Puss in Boots (DreamWorks Animation) last Saturday. If you’ve seen the Shrek films, then you know Puss is the somewhat lovable cat that was hired to kill Shrek. This movie is about how Puss became an outlaw and how he got his name. The story takes place before Puss met Shrek and Donkey. Bottom line: the animated movie is cute, funny, and will appeal to people of all ages. However, younger kids might not understand some of the humor because some jokes are aimed at adults and older children. The 90-minute Puss in Boots movie is rated PG and will open in theaters this Friday (October 28th).
