Warner Bros DVD Giveaway – Win Three Great Flicks!

21st August 2013

Today I’m hosting a great Warner Bros. DVD giveaway!!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a giveaway so I figured giving away three Blu-Ray/DVDs would be fun.

GANGSTER SQUAD

“The year is 1949 and ruthless gangster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) has the city of Los Angeles in his grip. Against a gang protected by rampant corruption, Chief Bill Parker (Nick Nolte) resorts to extremes. He enlists hero Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) to form a unit to exact vigilante justice. Their job isn’t to make arrests..it’s to make war. “

Also, Ryan Gosling is in it – so there’s that.

BEAUTIFUL CREATURES

A supernatural love story based on the popular series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, featuring another great cast which includes Jeremy Irons, Emma Thompson and Viola Davis.

CLOUD ATLAS

From the creators of the Matrix Trilogy and directed by Tom Tykwer (of Run, Lola, Run), Cloud Atlas is truly an indescribable, epic experience. You just have to watch it.

Parental Guidance Movie – DVD Giveaway

28th March 2013

Parental Guidance movie

Parental Guidance the movie is now out on DVD!

Billy Crystal, Bette Midler and Marisa Tomei prove that laughter is relative in this hilarious comedy that’s fun for the whole family! Old-school grandparents Artie (Crystal) and Diane (Midler) get more than they bargained for when they get stuck babysitting their type-A daughter’s (Tomei) overprotected kids. But things go from hectic to hysterical when Artie realizes the kids are running the house with their newfangled technology. By playing by his own rules, which include sugary snacks, old fashioned games and tough love, Artie manages to outsmart the kids and achieve the impossible- bring the family closer together!
If only the grandparents had had a bit of a social media guide to help them along. Here you go, grandparents – some basics to get you started!

 

  • The iPhone: The iPhone is an Apple branded smartphone that made its market debut in 2007 and runs on the “iOS” or Apple operating system. The iPhone features include: web browsing, video playback and recording, voice calling, instant messaging and more. 
  • “LOL”: An acronym for laughing out loud or laugh out loud, “LOL”.
  • FTW!: A guy like Arnie should be about as familiar with this commonly used internet acronym as he is with who ‘s in the running for the World Series. “FTW” stands for ‘for the win’ and is typically used in conversations revolving around sports or debate. 
  • StumbleUpon: For a Grandfather, to stumble upon something is not usually a good thing but StumbleUpon is a site that virtually archives the best of everything anyone has ever stumbled upon on the internet. So, if grandpa happens upon a really interesting article, he can share it on StumbleUpon and allow others to check it out! 
  • Facebook: Facebook is the largest online social network with over 1 billion users; the site is one of the best ways to connect with friends and family. Additionally, most businesses and entertainment personalities maintain accounts on the site and often host promotions for fans and consumers on Facebook. Grandpa might want to subscribe to his favorite baseball team’s page in order to stay updated on their latest events and news!
  • Twitter: Twitter is one of the ten most visited sites on the internet, all that’s need to join the site is an email address and password.  Site users interact with one another through “tweets,” or 140 character messages, and are permitted to “follow” other users who they find interesting; it is important to note that Twitter’s subscribers include the Fresno Grizzlies!
  • Meetup: The Deckers may find that their new social media savvy motivates them to expand their social groups. Meetup.com is just the site to help with that endeavor and will allow Grandma and Grandpa to meet up with grandparents from all walks of life who share their interests.  For Arnie that might mean reaching out to the Fresno baseball Meetup group! All that’s needed to join this site is an active email address for registration.

Life of Pi – Movie Review And Giveaway

27th March 2013

Life of Pi Movie Review

Have you seen Life of Pi yet? We watched with the kids and it was unanimous in our house – we LOVED Life of Pi.

A “magnificent and moving” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) motion picture event that has been hailed as “a masterpiece” (Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times), taking in over $500 million in worldwide box office.  LIFE OF PI follows Pi Patel, a young man on a fateful voyage who, after a spectacular disaster, is marooned on a lifeboat with the only other survivor, a fearsome 450 lb Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker. Hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery Pi and his majestic companion make an amazing and unexpected connection.

The movie was visually stunning with phenomenal special effects – I had to keep reminding myself that what I was seeing was not real. It’s also very hard to believe that this was Suraj Sharma’s (young Pi) first film – he was glorious and the idea that he basically acted alone for most of the movie is amazing. Reminiscent of Castaway and Tom Hanks but substitute that volleyball Wilson for Richard Parker the tiger. I’m also a huge fan of Irrfan Khan (adult Pi) – I’ve loved him in so many roles and this one is no exception. This Oscar winning film (in Directing, Cinematography, Music and Visual Effects) will take you on an emotional journey where you will laugh and cry and believe. Life of Pi is absolutely an experience – a wonderful movie that everyone will enjoy.

GIVEAWAY!

I’m giving away a DVD/Blu-Ray copy of Life of Pi! To enter, please leave a comment below.

Trouble With The Curve – Review & Giveaway

21st January 2013


Trouble With The Curve is a great movie about an aging baseball scout, Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) and his relationship with his daughter Mickey (Amy Adams). When his abilities come into question, his daughter puts her own career as a high powered attorney at risk to save his.

I actually assumed that Trouble with the Curve was more about baseball than anything else, but baseball only plays a supporting role in this flick. It’s really about the troubled and very complicated father daughter relationship, which is dysfunctional to say the least. Clint Eastwood brings his classic squint and perfected grumpiness to his role and could not be better cast for the role. Amy Adams is fabulous, but then she is most of the time so it’s no surprise that she is a joy to watch in Trouble With The Curve. Also, actors Justin Timberlake (yum) and John Goodman only add to the great cast of this film.

Best Quote of the Movie: Gus – “Now get out of here before I have a heart attack trying to kill you.”

I think it’s a great rental to watch with your man, or woman, or dog, or alone (as long as the popcorn is plentiful). Enjoy!

GIVEAWAY!

I’m giving away ONE Blu-Ray combo pack of Trouble With The Curve!

To enter, leave a comment below and tell me your favorite Clint Eastwood or Amy Adams movie!

Magic Mike – Movie Review & Giveaway

21st October 2012

Magic Mike is a movie about male strippers. And naked things.

Male strippers and nakedness.

I think that pretty much sums it up.

*

To be fair, Magic Mike is played by Channing Tatum (PERFECTLY cast I might add – yes, he was a stripper in his former life and he can dance and you want to see his naked things). The movie, directed by Steven Soderbergh, is about Mike’s relationship with Adam (Alex Pettyfer), whom he introduces to stripping.

Reasons to Watch:

Despite thinking that my DVD might be broken since it took 20 minutes to get to the stripping, there are many nude man parts in this flick. If naked men rock your socks, this is the movie for you.

Also, Channing Tatum. Is. Just. Delightful.

On the negative side, I’m not a huge fan of Matthew McConaughey – he irritates me to no end so I tried to shut him out every time he was on the screen. Also, the story was kind of weak/boring, but then again let’s be honest, this movie is about stripping and hot dudes. Regardless, it is the perfect flick to watch with all your girlfriends – because of the nakedness. Watching with your best girlies will guarantee the laughs and a good time. Don’t watch with your husband – most men don’t have a sense of humour when it comes to dudes that are clearly hotter than they are.  Protect their egos and watch it without them.

Magic Mike is out on DVD Tuesday, October 23, 2012. The Blu-Ray combo pack has special features to watch including, extended dance scenes (ie. dirtier than the regular amount of movie theatre dirty), a dance play mode that allows you to play all the dance sequences back to back, and some backstage time with Channing Tatum who shares some how to stripper details (perhaps you’re in the market for a new career).

GIVEAWAY!

I’m giving away ONE Blu-Ray combo pack, DVD and Digital download of Magic Mike!!

To enter, leave a comment below and tell me if  you have a funny/interesting/weird stripper story. If you don’t, let me know why you want to win instead.
