The kids and I recently watched Smurfs: The Lost Village. My younger kids loved it and thought it was funny and entertaining. I thought the new Smurfs movie was OK. The main reason I didn’t enjoy it more is because until I watched it, I didn’t know it was a fully animated film (no live action). The third installment is related to the second Smurfs movie, but humans are not in the film. The story takes place completely in the Smurfs world, which is a shame because I liked the Patrick and Grace characters in the first two Smurfs films. But if you or your kids like animated films or Smurfs, then you’ll enjoy the latest Smurfs movie. Smurfs: The Lost Village, which is rated PG, is available now in 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is re-releasing A League of Their Own on Blu-ray on April 18th. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched this movie. I liked it 25 years ago, and I still think it’s excellent after watching it again recently. The story is about two sisters joining the first women baseball team. It’s a humorous drama, but I think most parents will appreciate the underlying message that women can live their dream.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is releasing Apple of My Eye on DVD on January 10th.

Ghostbusters is available now on Blu-ray and DVD. To help promote the release, Walmart, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Mars, Wrigley and Kellogg’s are teaming up for the annual Boo It Forward campaign. The idea is to make a bundle of goodies, and then secretly deliver it to someone. The recipient then plays it forward by putting together their own little treat bundle and secretly giving it to someone else.

As you all know, Mother’s Day is this Sunday. You do know Mother’s Day is this weekend, right? Well you should. Even the hatchlings of The Angry Birds Movie know Mother’s Day is coming up. If you don’t believe me, see for yourself in the video below. BTW, you can see a free screening of The Angry Birds Movie in Portland next weekend. The Angry Birds Movie (Sony Pictures) will open in theaters on May 20th.
I watched Identicals (Samuel Goldwyn Films and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment) recently. The R-rated movie is about a world where Identicals exist. Identicals are people who look like you, walk like you, and talk like you, but they live different, better lives. In the story, people upgrade their lives by replacing their doppelgangers. I like the idea behind the story, but the ending was on the confusing side. It’s what I call an artsy fartsy ending. Identicals is available now video on demand, and will be available on DVD on Tuesday (April 5th).
The fourth installment of Open Season will be released on Tuesday. The latest title is called Open Season: Scared Silly, which is a little more original than adding 2 and 3 after Open Season like the other two sequels. In Scared Silly, which is rated PG, Elliot decides to scare the fear out of Boog. I thought this was a bit ironic because I don’t think Elliot is brave either. I thought the animated film was a OK, but my kids love the movie. They thought it was really funny. Open Season is one of those series children will like more than adults will. Open Season: Scared Silly will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD on Tuesday, March 8th. BTW, I received a Blu-ray for review on my dad blog.
