I saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Lucasfilm) for the second time recently. The first time was at the theater and the second time was via Disney Movies Anywhere and Roku. I’m a big Star Wars fan and I really enjoyed the sci-fi film. Unlike the other Star Wars movies I’ve seen, Rogue One is a standalone story. Remember the very first Star Wars film (A New Hope)? In the story, Luke destroys the Death Star thanks to plans stolen by the rebels. Rogue One is about the rebels who stole the plans that revealed the weakness in the Death Star. Note: I received a movie kit for reviewing the film on my blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.
It looks like there is another player for digital HD streaming: M-Go. To be honest, I did not know anything about them until I received a promo code to review Walking with Dinosaurs on M-Go. BTW, the movie won’t be able available on Blu-ray or DVD until next Tuesday, but you can watch it now in digital HD via M-Go. With a streaming service like M-Go, not only can you watch Walking with Dinosaurs before it arrives in stores, but you can also watch the movie on the go with the kids.
Have you heard of UltraViolet? It’s a digital service that allows dads, moms, and kids to upload, store and watch their favorite movies whenever and wherever they want. I tried out the service recently with three of Sony Pictures’ UltraViolet movies: Men in Black (I and II), Moneyball, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The movies were great on my Blu-ray player, but I also loved watching the UltraViolet movies on my iPod touch and Nook Color. The playback was very smooth. Best of all, I didn’t have to use software to convert my movies into a format that can be played on my mobile devices. The cloud service took care of that for me, and the process was easy and very quick.
