Rugrats: Season 1 & Season 2 are Arriving on DVD!!! #Giveaway


Do your remember the Rugrats? I do, and I am so excited because Seasons 1 & 2 will be available on DVD May 2, 2017!

I just received these DVDs and cannot wait to experience this series with my youngest kids. They have never seen the Rugrats.

A baby’s gotta do what a baby’s gotta do in the all-new DVD releases of Rugrats: Season 1 Rugrats: Season 2.  Told from the perspective of a group of adventurous and imaginative toddlers, Rugrats transformed the most mundane activities into unforgettable adventures. Led by fearless leader Tommy Pickles, the gang can turn an ordinary trip to the park into a journey across the Sahara in search of water, a visit to the plant nursery into a jungle trek to find a cure for “jungle beaver,” or a search for cookies into a prehistoric fantasy. Together, there’s no adventure too big and no problem they can’t solve… or at least nothing that a good nap won’t help.

Rugrats premiered on Nickelodeon in 1991 and is beloved by millennials as one of their favorite childhood TV shows.  With heartfelt and adventurous stories, Rugrats: Season 1 & Rugrats: Season 2 are sure to fill the nostalgic hearts of fans who grew up with the show as well as bring new joy and excitement to a younger generation. Episodes of Rugrats currently air on Nickelodeon’s daily ’90s programming TV block, “The Splat,” from 10pm-6am (ET/PT) on TeenNick.

Rugrats: Season 1 Rugrats: Season 2 will be available individually on May 2 from Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution. Rugrats: Season 1 contains 25 episodes on two discs and Rugrats: Season 2 contains 51 episodes – over ten hours – on four discs.

Discover “The Light Between Oceans” #Giveaway

In this film based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel, a traumatized and withdrawn World War I hero named Tom wants to live a quiet life. He is hired to be the lightkeeper at Janus Rock, a lighthouse off the coast of Western Australia. He meets a radiant, spirited local girl named Isabel and falls in love. The pair marry in 1921 and start a life filled with marital bliss. Heartache strikes when Isabel has 2 miscarriages and fears she may never carry a child to term.

Not long after losing the second baby, a boat washes up on shore with a baby girl and a dead man. Isabel begs Tom not to report the discovery and to take the baby and pass it off as their own. Tom reluctantly agrees and buries the man. They name the baby girl Lucy.

When Tom and Isabel go to the mainland to have Lucy baptized, Tom witnesses a woman kneeling in front of a grave with the names of a man and infant daughter who were lost at sea the same day Lucy was found. Tom cannot stop thinking that the woman may be Lucy’s mother so he writes an anonymous letter to her. In the letter he lets her know that her husband is dead but that her baby girl is alive, safe and well taken care of.

Tom, Isabel and Lucy spend the next three years living an idyllic life together. Everything is turned upside down when they attend a celebration for the anniversary of the lighthouse.

I will not spoil the movie for you but it takes an abrupt turn at this point and the lives of Isabel, Tom and Lucy will never be the same. Will Isabel be forced to give Lucy up? Will the couple be charged with a crime for not reporting their discovery? The rest of the movie will hold those answers and will draw you deeply in. You can view the trailer Here.

BLU-RAY & DIGITAL HD Bonus features include:

Bringing The Light to Life – For weeks, the cast and crew of “The Light Between Oceans” lived in trailers on Cape Campbell, an isolated region of New Zealand, to film the movie adaptation of the best-selling novel. This documentary chronicles the unique approach and shooting style of director Derek Cianfrance and the production journey that inspired Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz to fully embody their characters and explore the power and depths of love.
Audio Commentary – View the film accompanied by an in-depth and thoughtful conversation between director Derek Cianfrance and his film studies professor Phil Solomon.
Lighthouse Keeper – The filmmakers, cast and Cape Campbell Lighthouse inspector/maintainer Rob Sword share the history of the lighthouse and explain the typical duties a lighthouse keeper like Tom Sherbourne would have during an assignment on Janus Island.

“The Gruffalo’s Child” Re-Released on DVD #Giveaway

Yesterday, I told you about the re-release of, The Gruffalo and today, I am here to tell you all about the re-release of, The Gruffalo’s Child. This film is based on the beloved children’s picture book by Julia Donaldson. I can’t tell you how much my kids love these films. I have to admit, I do as well. They are so beautifully done that they captivate our attention from beginning to end. In The Gruffalo’s Child, The Gruffalo tells his child about a Big Bad Mouse that he ran into many years before.

The curious little Gruffalo cannot contain her curiosity and sets out to see if this creature really exists. She encounters the same fox, owl and snake from The Gruffalo who each tell her where she can find the Big Bad Mouse. Feeling that she had been tricked and there is no Big Bad Mouse, she finally runs into the little mouse from The Gruffalo. The little mouse is just as clever, and invites The Gruffalo’s Child to meet the Big Bad Mouse using the moonlight to cast a shadow that scares the Gruffalo’s Child and sends her fleeing.

These films show children that brains can prevail over brawn. Check out the trailer HERE!  Helena Bonham Carter narrates as she did in The Gruffalo. Special features include a Behind the Scenes Documentary and Artwork Gallery. You can purchase this film on Amazon. If you would like a chance to win this DVD, enter the giveaway below.

Award-Winning Children’s Book, “The Gruffalo” re-released on DVD #Giveaway

I am excited to share an enchanting film based on the award-winning children’s picture book by Julia Donaldson. The Gruffalo  has just been re-released on DVD and tells the story of a mouse who walks through the woods in search of a nut. Along his route he runs across several other creatures who think he looks like a tasty treat.

This tiny mouse shows that smart thinking can outwit a hungry fox, owl and snake. Mouse invents an imaginary monster with frightening features to scare them away.

He tells them all he is having lunch with this scary creature and that his favorite food is them which sends them running for cover. Mouse is feeling pretty smug thinking about how easy it was to trick them.

That smug mouse was very surprised to happen upon the very creature he made up, the frightening Gruffalo. The Gruffalo wanted to eat the mouse on a slice of bread but that mouse thought quickly and told the Gruffalo everyone in this forest is afraid of him.

The Gruffalo laughed and said he would walk behind the mouse to see just how frightened everyone was. It worked like a charm and sent the snake, owl and fox running. The mouse then told the Gruffalo that his favorite food was Gruffalo Crumble at which the Gruffalo turned and fled. The mouse found his nut and all was well!

This delightful story brought to life is narrated by Helena Bonham Carter shows that one does not have to be big to be mighty and is wonderful to share with your children. You can watch the trailer HERE!

“Finding Dory”- Another Fish Tale Worth Watching!

My kids love Finding Nemo so when Finding Dory by Disney Pixar arrived on Blu-Ray Combo pack recently, they could not wait to watch it. It did not disappoint, they have a new favorite! They were hooked from start to finish and so was I.

finding-dory

Ellen DeGeneres is the voice of Dory again and this time we meet a very young Dory and her parents who are voiced by Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton. They are trying to help young Dory with her short-term memory loss. We then are taken to the present day where Dory lives with Marlin, a Clownfish voiced by Albert Brooks and his son Nemo.

finding-dory

Dory runs into some trouble when on a fish field trip she has a collision that knocks her out. When she wakes up, she remembers she was separated from her parents and sets off to find them.  Just as you would suspect, it does not go as planned and Dory ends up in a Sea World like aquarium program and meets Hank a grumpy octopus voiced by Ed O’Neill who has lost one of his 8 tentacles

finding-dory-2

The interaction between Dory and Hank makes for great entertainment. There are other new characters like a Beluga whale who keeps thinking his head is swollen and a Whale Shark that has vision problems.

finding-dory-1

Dory finds out her parents went out into the ocean to find her and since Hank wants to go to an aquarium in Cleveland he helps Dory escape so he can go in her place. Dory does find her parents in the open ocean. It is a good movie and has a nice ending. Movie is approximately 97 minutes long and is rated PG in the US and G in Canada.

Have you seen it yet? If so let me know your thoughts in the comments.
