With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.

Prep and Landing Totally Tinsel Edition Is A Must Have For Your Holiday Movie Collection!

Prep and Landing Totally Tinsel
Prep and Landing Totally Tinsel Edition…is Totally Tinsel!!!

It’s a week until Christmas, and what better way to get in the holiday spirit than by taking a look at the Prep and Landing Totally Tinsel Edition, which is by far one of my most favorite holiday Blu-Ray movies!

The Prep and Landing Totally Tinsel Edition is a great way to own both features, Prep & Landing and Prep & Landing: Naughty vs Nice, along with 45 minutes of hilarious extras and shorts, including the Emmy award winning Short Operation Secret Santa!

From the moment I first watch the original Prep & Landing, which was released in 2009, I was hooked! I fell in love with Wayne, Lanny, Magee, and the gang!

On Christmas Eve, a high-tech team of elves from an elite unit known as ‘Prep & Landing’ ensures homes around the world  are prepared for Santa’s visit.  But when two hilarious little elves face unexpected challenges and are pushed to their limits, it’ll take a great big effort to save the season

Prep and Landing Totally Tinsel
Prep & Landing

And in Prep & Landing: Naughty vs Nice, released in 2011, Wayne and the gang are back for more holiday high jinks!

The outrageous yuletide adventures of Christmas elves Lanny and Wayne continue in this totally tinsel adventure that reminds us there’s room for everyone on the ‘nice’ list.  Santa’s stealthiest little elves must race to recover classified North Pole technology, which has fallen into the hands of a computer-hacking naughty kid, in an effort to stop Christmas from descending into chaos.

Prep and Landing Totally Tinsel
Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice

The extras on the Prep and Landing Totally Tinsel Edition are so much fun! Loading with tons of North Pole commercials, Kringle Academy, North Pole News, Behind the Scenes with Grace Potterand, and more! Also included is my absolute favorite short Tiny’s Big Adventure!

httpv://youtu.be/E_sRZsLUmyw

If you are a big Prep & Landing fan or if you are just looking for a fun Holiday Blu-Ray for the family, I hope that you check out the Prep and Landing Totally Tinsel Edition!!!

Brave Is Available Now On Disney Blu-Ray

Brave
Brave is available now on Blu-Ray!

The first time I saw “Brave” it resonated with me on so many levels, and while I was an emotional wreck I was already excited to own it on Blu-Ray! Watching Merida and her Mother, Queen Elinor, made me think of when I was like Merida, a rebellious daughter, and now as a mother who, like Queen Elinor, is now in that tricky place where nurturing turns into molding a person where it is easy to get lost in responsibilities. And in November when “Brave” was released on Blu-Ray I was beyond excited with the quality of the movie and extras!

“Brave” follows the heroic journey of Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her skills and resources – including her clever and mischievous triplet brothers – to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late, discovering the meaning of true bravery.

 

Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humor that audiences of all ages around the world have come to eagerly expect.

“Brave” is absolutely stunning in the Blu-Ray format. The picture itself is just as breathtaking as it was on the big screen and the sound is just as immersive. The attention to detail really resonates in HD, and is a true delight to watch over and over again.

Brave

There are tons of great HD extras spread over two discs. With 13 featurettes, 4 extended scenes, an alternative opening, 15 minutes of promotional pieces from around the world, an art gallery with almost 500 images, and a sneak peek at Monsters University you will be busy for hours!

While there are a lot of different opinions about “Brave”, I have to say that it is definitely a new favorite in our house!

Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure Available Now On Disney Blu-Ray

Lady and the Tramp II
Lady and the Tramp II Available Now On Disney Blu-Ray
Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure is available now for the first time ever on Disney Blu-Ray!

I absolutely love Lady and the Tramp, which probably explains my unusual love of Tony’s Town Square at the Magic Kingdom, so when the opportunity to review Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure came about I jumped at the chance!

In Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure, Lady and Tramp’s mischievous pup Scamp decides that he doesn’t fit in with his family and decides to run away. Once he has left his collar behind, he joins a gang of junkyard dogs who don’t always have his best interests in mind. Scamp also meets, saves, and falls in love with a pretty little pup named Angel, voiced by Alyssa Milano, along the way. This movie is a great example of the heartwarming direct-to-video sequels that were being created at the time of its original release. There are some great nods to Lady and the Tramp in Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure, and it really looks great in this Blu-Ray Format.

Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure has some fun bonuses, and we really enjoyed the Puppy Trivia Track which allows you to watch the movie with tons of fun facts about dogs, the movie, and dogs as they have appeared throughout Disney. Also on the Blu-Ray release of Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure you can find some Pluto Bonus Shorts, which are always a must watch for my family.

You can absolutely tell that Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure was created by people who have love and respect for Lady and the Tramp, and is a cute movie to watch if your family is full of dog lovers! We enjoyed the movie, but be warned it is a shorter side so you may be asked to watch it twice!!!

The Aristocats Special Edition Brings This Disney Classic To Life In Stunning Blu-Ray For the First Time!

The Aristocats Special Edition Brings This Disney Classic To Life In Stunning Blu-Ray For the First Time!

The Aristocats Special Edition
The Aristocats Special Edition available now on Blu-Ray!

Disney’s spectacular 20th full-length animated feature The Aristocats has arrived for the first time ever in stunning Blu-ray high definition as a The Aristocats Special Edition 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD) and Digital. Featuring a beautiful new digital restoration and great new bonus features, The Aristocats Special Edition invites audiences to relive all the tune-filled feline fun, comedy and adventure of this Disney classic.

The exciting tale takes place in the heart of Paris where a kind and eccentric millionairess, wills her entire estate to ‘Duchess,’ a high society cat, and her three kittens. When the bumbling butler Edgar tries to pull off the ultimate catnap caper in order to secure the fortune for himself, it’s up to alley cat Thomas O’Malley and his band of swingin’ jazz cats to save the day. The Aristocats features the voice talents of Eva Gabor, Phil Harris, Sterling Halloway and legendary French singer Maurice Chevalier, who performs the film’s titular opening song. The legendary Disney songwriting team of brothers, Richard and Robert Sherman, get the joint jumping with the jazz-inspired musical numbers Ev’rybody Wants To Be A Cat, Scales and Arpeggios, and Thomas O’Malley Cat.

The Aristocats Special Edition is chocked full of great bonus features, and is an especially wonderful treat if you are a super fan (like I am) of the Sherman Brothers!!! During The Lost Open featurette, Richard Sherman takes you through storyboards of a never-before-seen alternate beginning which introduces a deleted character and a deleted song How Much You Mean To Me and Court Me Slowly written and performed by the Sherman brothers. This song demo was one of the few times Richard and Robert ever sang together. And if your little one is anything like mine, they will be playing all of the songs over and over again! Zoe is especially fond of Ev’rybody Wants To Be A Cat! Also, The Aristocats Special Edition also has one of my most favorite Figaro shorts!!! Additional classic bonus features on The Aristocats Special Edition include the delightful deleted song, She Never Felt Alone and The Great Cat Family (Excerpt), which explores the history of cats.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6kVxV4O_dk&feature=share&list=PL2F52ED02924C2731

The Aristocats Special Edition full bonus features include…

– Oui Oui Marie Music Video

– Deleted Song – She Never Felt Alone: This deleted song, complete with animation, will tug at the heartstrings of any animal lover, as Duchess explains to Thomas O’ Malley why she must return to her beloved owner Madame Bonfamille. Richard Sherman discusses the song he co-wrote with his brother Robert, which captures the special relationship between a pet owner and their animal. It’s a moving sequence that will stir everyone’s fondest memories of their favorite pets.

– The Sherman Brothers: The Aristocats of Disney Songs: A tribute to the legendary Disney songwriting team of Robert and Richard Sherman, with particular emphasis on The Aristocats.

– The Great Cat Family (Excerpt): This animated excerpt tells the history of cats from ancient Egyptians to the present.

– The Classic Disney short Bath Day: Figaro has been freshly bathed and perfumed by Minnie when he meets up with Lucifer and his gang who chase him. In the ensuing fight, the gang is fooled into beating up Lucifer and making Figaro the winner. But the victor is soon put back in the tub by Minnie.

– Disney Song Selection:

  • The Aristocats
  • Scales and Arpeggios
  • Thomas O’Malley Cat
  • Ev’rybody Wants To Be A Cat

I am a huge The Aristocats fan, and it is such a treat to be able to share these with my family in the stunning Blu-Ray format! It really is amazing all the details that seem to pop out at you when you view it on Blu-Ray! The Aristocats Special Edition is a great addition to you Blu-Ray Disney Classics collection!!!

Walt Disney Pocahontas and Pocahontas II available on Blu-Ray!

Walt Disney Pocahontas and Pocahontas II is available on Blu-Ray on August 21, 2012.

Walt Disney Pocahontas and Pocahontas II: Journey into a New World available on Blu-Ray today!

Walt Disney Pocahontas and Pocahontas II: Journey into a New World action-packed animated musical adventure Pocahontas and Pocahontas II: Journey into a New World debut for the first time ever in vivid High Definition on August 21, 2012.

Combined also for the first time in a two-movie collection, the release allowed families and fans of all ages to own these timeless stories of hope, courage, and friendship on a Blu-Ray Combo pack which includes three discs of movies, music, extras, and more!

While I enjoy Walt Disney Pocahontas, I am not a huge fan of it’s sequel Pocahontas II: Journey into a New World, which felt very forced and choppy. The movies are absolutely beautiful! The hand drawn animation is just breath taking!

The two most enjoyable bonus features that I absolutely enjoyed were Drawing Inspiration: The Lost Story of Hiawatha and the “Little Hiawatha” Cartoon Short. Drawing Inspiration: The Lost Story of Hiawatha  is a fascinating behind-the-scenes featurette showing how Walt Disney and his team were once developing a full-length animated feature called “Hiawatha”, that ultimately influenced the development of Walt Disney Pocahontas. and the  “Little Hiawatha” Cartoon Short totally reminds me of Thanksgiving time when I was younger.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcGJDcPVZfs&feature=share&list=PL790E72ECB21BAB6C

The three disc Blu-Ray Combo Pack (1 Disc Blu-Ray and 2 Disc DVD), includes the movie plus…

  • Drawing Inspiration: The Lost Story of Hiawatha – During the 1940’s, Walt Disney and his team were developing a full-length animated feature called “Hiawatha”. During the early stages of development for Walt Disney “Pocahontas”, the directors found the “Hiawatha” storyboards and were amazed at what they saw. It directly influenced their development of “Pocahontas”. Now, for the first time ever, the full story of Walt Disney’s “Hiawatha” will be presented by “Pocahontas” co-director Eric Goldberg and animation historian Charles Solomon.
  • Deleted Song: “If I Never Knew You”  – Walt Disney Pocahontas co-director Eric Goldberg introduces this fully animated deleted song, now in HD.  Optional audio commentary with co-directors Eric Goldberg & Mike Gabriel and producer James Pentecost.
  • The Music of Pocahontas
  • “Little Hiawatha” Cartoon Short
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Walt Disney “Pocahontas” Audio Commentary – with co-directors Eric Goldberg & Mike Gabriel and producer James Pentecost.
  • Virtual Vault – A collection of past bonus features, offered via online streaming.

I hope that you enjoy the Walt Disney Pocahontas and Pocahontas II:Journey to a New World on Blu-Ray Combo Pack!

“Winnie The Pooh” A Review And Contest, Too!!!

“Winnie the Pooh”, available on Disney Blu-Ray and DVD October 25th,  is a whimsical return to the Hundred Acre Wood with all of the characters that we have all grown up knowing and loving with an amazing cast and musical score that revived my  love of the “Winnie the Pooh” stories!!!

“Winnie the Pooh”, directed by Stephen Anderson (Meet The Robinsons) and Don Hall (The Princess and The Frog) and Executive Produced by John Lasseter, is inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne and sends you back to Disney’s classic, hand drawn art that is so comforting to watch. Our only complaint was that the movie is only an hour long! We wanted more!!!!

The cast of voice talent is absolutely amazing! While a lot of the voices are recognizable from other things, the actors have taken care to be respectful of the voices of the original cartoon.

John Cleese serves as our narrator and the story itself features the talents of Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, Craig Ferguson as Owl, Tom Kenny as Rabbit, Travis Oates as Piglet, Bud Luckey as Eeyore, Kristen Anderson-Lopez as Kanga, Wyatt Hall as Roo and Huell Howser as Backson and Jack Boulter. I have to say that my favorite was Craig Ferguson as Owl and that I had to get used to Bud Luckey as Eeyore.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zmmSYX6p-s

The amazing musical scores featured throughout the film were created by Tony® Award-winning songwriter Bobby Lopez, and his wife Kristen, who wrote all of the six spirited new songs for Pooh and his pals, including “The Tummy Song,” “A Very Important Thing To Do,” “Everything Is Honey,” “The Winner Song,” “The Backson Song,” and “It’s Gonna Be Great.” Lopez is behind the Broadway hits “Book of Mormon” and  “Avenue Q” and together they’ve written for Nickelodeon and Disney, including the stage version of “Finding Nemo” and composed songs for several episodes of “The Wonder of Pets,” which earned him two Daytime Emmy® Awards in 2006 for Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition.

The original score, a special rendition of the beloved “Winnie the Pooh” theme song for the film was composed by Henry Jackman (“The Da Vinci Code,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” “Monsters vs. Aliens”) and sung by actress, musician, singer and songwriter, Zooey Deschanel (Indie folk band, “She & Him”). Deschanel also provided vocals for
“A Very Important Thing To Do” and “So Long.”

The Blu-Ray is also filled to the brim with TONS of bonus features!!!!

·       Exclusive bonus short “Mini-Adventures of Winnie the Pooh: The Balloon” – In this charming short, Pooh comes up with a daring plan to get a hold of some honey by fooling a group of bees.

·       “Winnie the Pooh and His Story Too” – A fun and informative behind-the-scenes look at the film, designed for the whole family. Hosted by John Cleese (narrator of the film), and with occasional help fromPooh himself, this featurette explores Winnie the Pooh’s history from his beginnings as a character in a book, to his continued life in the movies. The filmmakers reveal how they worked to keep the look of the characters and settings in this movie consistent with their first appearances on-screen in1966.

Daddy’s Movie Day Continues With Your Chance to Win Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides On Blu-Ray

Being a fan of the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise, I was very excited to see the latest installment Pirate of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides come in the mail.  The fourth installment of Pirates brought back many of the characters we have grown to love, Captain Jack, Barbossa and Gibbs, in this franchise with some new faces to keep a fresh edge to the story.  With the departure of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swan (Keira Knightley) brings a bevy of new characters to play off Captain Jack.  I enjoyed the addition of Angelica (Penelope Cruiz) and Blackbeard (Ian McShane) as it simplified the story to a single, more direct storyline instead of the multiple often convoluted storylines around Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan in the previous two sequels.

Even if you are not a fan of the story, like the previous films, the special effects and action sequences can easily carry the movie.  From the opening scene where Jack rampages through the palace of the King with his usual eloquence, it’s a non-stop journey filled with action, adventure, and pithy one liners that we have come to expect from this amazing franchise.

Being the father of a 5 year old girl who LOVES pirates, one of the best and most troubling parts of this movie were the mermaid sequences.  The visual effects and action sequences in the water were exceptionally done, but the film takes a departure from classic “Disney” depictions of mermaids.  They are shown as alluring and deadly creatures that both hunt and are hunted by the pirates they encounter.  The scenes around them can be somewhat scary for younger viewers who are used to mermaids like Ariel.

After seeing it for the first time in the theatre in digital 3D, I was worried that the visually stunning effects would be lost when viewed in a smaller, non 3D (as I don’t currently have a 3D TV at home…yet…HINT HINT Shelley) format. However the much more direct story line, non-stop action and over the top visual effects of On Stranger Tides entertained as it did in the theatre and made for an enjoyable night in front of the TV.  In my opinion it was the best film since the original, and made for an entertaining and fun experience for the whole family.
