Little House on the Prairie: Legacy Movie Collection Review & Giveaway (ends 9/30/16)

 

little-house-on-the-prairie-legacy-movie-collection

Are you a fan of Little House on the Prairie? I have been a fan for as long as the show has been on television. I used to watch it faithfully with my sister when we were younger. I enjoyed it up until the Ingalls family moved away and a new family took over their home. From that point on I lost interest in the series. Even now I really don’t care about Little House on the Prairie: A New Beginning. I never connected with the newer characters.

Little House on the Prairie is mostly known for it’s series, but occasionally they did air special movies featuring the characters from the series.

A newly released DVD includes other Little House on the Prairie movies. The new DVD (also available on Digital HD) is entitled Little House on the Prairie: Legacy Movie Collection. 

Celebrate the series that stole America’s heart when Little House on the Prairie: Legacy Movie Collection arrives on DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD September 13 from Lionsgate. Say farewell to this legendary western drama with three movie adventures: Look Back to Yesterday, Bless All the Dear Children, and The Last Farewell. These restored and remastered movies will be available individually on Digital HD and the Little House on the Prairie: Legacy Movie Collection DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.98.

The story of the Ingalls family concludes with these three heartwarming movies—newly restored and remastered for optimal sound and picture quality. Rediscover the timeless adventure of “Little House on the Prairie” as Albert displays courage in the face of a serious illness; Laura and Almanzo race to find their missing baby daughter; and the community of Walnut Grove unites to defend its town in these inspiring and exciting moments that fans will treasure.

This movie collection has a run time of about five hours.

I am familiar with the movie Bless All the Dear Children when Laura and Almanzo’s daughter, Rose, gets kidnapped. I knew right away what that one was about because I recognized the title. The other two I didn’t. In all fairness I don’t remember most of the titles/episodes, only a handful. Bless All the Dear Children is one of the ones I remember.

I have never seen Look Back to Yesterday until now. I don’t know how after all these years I missed that episode! It’s a very sad one so you bet have the tissues handy when you watch it.

I believe Look Back to Yesterday is the final episode of the series. That is the one where the people of Walnut Grove do something very drastic when a land developer buys out all of their land.

This is a good assortment of Little House on the Prairie movies. If you are a fan you’ll want to add this DVD to your Little House on the Prairie collection.

Look for Little House on the Prairie: Legacy Movie Collection where ever DVDs are sold.

Young Chefs Academy – Teaching kids 3-18 how to cook (giveaway ends 9/30/16)

 

2

Do you remember the first thing you made in the kitchen when you were a child? For me, it was boxed macaroni and cheese. It didn’t take me long to get familiar with the kitchen and cook things. I even liked to get creative and make up my own recipes using left overs and whatever I could find in the cabinets.

I’m fortunate that my husband knows how to cook too.

My teenagers can fend for themselves. Our almost 17 year old son cooks more than our 19 year old daughter. She either uses foods she can warm in the microwave, buys something to eat (if she’s too lazy to cook) or eats cereal.

I think its important that children and teenagers be comfortable in the kitchen and be able to make simple meals. Sadly, a lot of parents are simply too busy to teach their kids how to cook in the kitchen. Thank goodness for places like the Young Chefs Academy.

Young Chefs Academy is the country’s leading kids cooking school with more than 20 locations open or in development throughout ten states. Young Chefs Academy has captivated the creativity of children across U.S. communities for more than a decade.

Children enrolled in Young Chefs Academy will have the opportunity to participate in educational classes in a state-of-the-art kitchen. The curriculum at Young Chefs Academy is updated regularly with fresh monthly themes and exciting new programs with a strong focus on building culinary skills. Events and classes are fueled by the mantra, “mise en place,” which translates to “everything in its place.”

Tailored for young children discovering the kitchen in a KinderCooks® class, children in the Junior Chefs program and older students mastering concepts in the Senior Chefs group, there is a place and a lesson for every student to explore and grow through cooking. Each location also hosts birthdays and events for groups just looking for a taste of the Young Chefs experience.

Young Chefs Academy students can also benefit from opportunities connected to influential media partners, such as Food Network Magazine. Young Chefs Academy has hosted nationally recognized programs in conjunction with these and other partners, reaching both kids and adults across the nation with cooking tips and events to bring families together in the kitchen.

Founded in 2003, Young Chefs Academy is one part culinary adventure, one part culinary education, and it’s all for children. Here, learning invaluable life lessons (shhh… they don’t even know it’s happening) occurs through a cooking curriculum that evokes curiosity, which provides children a pathway to personal discovery and creativity, all in a warm, welcoming and inspiring movement.

Young Chefs Academy has classes for children from ages 3 – 18 years old.

Young Chefs Academy currently has schools in 10 states – California, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, New York, Ohio, Texas and Virginia. Locations in Idaho and Arkansas coming soon. You can see all the current locations here.

For more information visit YoungChefsAcademy.com. You can also check them out on social media – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows on Blu-ray Combo Pack & DVD Sept. 20, 2016 (giveaway ends 9/20/16)

 

tnt2he-001_bdosleeve_3d-dmub_01_r10

Cowabunga Dude! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, Out of the Shadows, is coming to Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on September 20, 2016.

The action packed fill will also be available on 3D and 4K Ultra. There will even be a limited edition van lunch box also available.

I have not seen the film – yet (I’ll be receiving a copy to review soon), so I cannot tell you what the movie is about. In the mean time, here is a press release for the film.

Your favorite pizza-loving heroes return in an epic new adventure loaded with wall-to-wall laughs that critics are calling “the best Ninja Turtles movie ever” (Eric Walkuski, JoBlo.com). Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows comes to Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on September 20, 2016 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.  The Heroes in a Half-Shell also will be available in a limited edition two-movie Blu-ray giftset with collectible metal lunchbox. The movie debuts two weeks early on Digital HD September 6.

Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello, and Michelangelo are back to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O’Neil and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones. After supervillain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop and Rocksteady, to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater threat with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.  Hailed as “fun from start to finish” (Brian Medina, Movie Pilot), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Laura Linney, Stephen Amell, and Tyler Perry in the live action film that is fun for the whole family.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Packs include more than 40 minutes of action-packed bonus content. Peek under the shell at the film’s eye-popping special effects, take a look inside the Turtles’ tricked-out van, go behind-the-scenes to explore the Turtleverse and much more!

It sounds like an interesting film. I know the kids I worked with last school season talked about it a lot.

Check out the trailer for the film. It looks pretty cool. Even if you are not a fan of the Turtles, the special effects are awesome.

 

If you would like to learn more you can check out the official website, TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMovie.com. You can also check the turtles out on social media. All of the links are found on the top right of their official website.

What do you think of the film? Did you see it?

Paramount Home Media Distribution has generously offered to give a lucky reader a copy of the film. 

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end on September 20, 2016. The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via email and will have three days to reply or a new winner will be chosen in their place.

You’ll be glad you had “this time together” with Carol Burnett Show (giveaway ends 9/23/16)

 

G6304B1_CBLE LID WRAP_Q8_Layout 1

I have to admit, I watched a lot of television when I was younger.

Saturday mornings were always the best. I’d grab my favorite cereal – Freakies (does anyone remember that cereal?) – a bowl and a spoon and race downstairs to the playroom to set myself up for a morning filled with awesome cartoons.

Oh the good old days…

I was also big on watching shows that normally adults would watch more so than children. Shows like The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, F-Troop, Bonanza, Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres. I also enjoyed variety shows like Sonny & Cher and Donny & Marie. 

My most favorite variety show, hands down, has to be The Carol Burnett Show. Her show would have me laughing so hard that I would cry.

Some of the jokes were geared more towards grown-ups, but I understood most of them. I especially LOVED IT when the actors would start laughing uncontrollably during the skits. Since the show was done live there was no way to edit them out. Honestly, it’s those unexpected moments where the actors totally lost it that were the most hysterical.

If you were a fan of The Carol Burnett Show you must pick up the newest DVD release – The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes Ultimate Collection. It’s a must have for any fan of the show.

The Lost Episodes Ultimate Collection features 22 DVDs. That’s right – 22!

cble-ultimate-collection-product-shot

The DVDs feature 45 episodes that were hand-picked by Carol Burnett herself to be featured in this extraordinary collection. There is also 20 hours of bonus material. I believe there is over 60+ hours of awesome entertainment to had with this amazing collection.

Many episodes featured in this collection has not been seen in over 40 years – not since they originally aired on television.

I used to watch the show all the time and I have never seen these episodes before. The series started in 1967, and I was born a year later. It wasn’t until I was about 7 or 8 year old (give or take) that I started to watch the shows. Back then I don’t believe they did re-runs. It was great to see episodes I have never seen before.

The Carol Burnett Show always featured celebrity guests including Lucielle Ball, Joan Rivers, Mel Torme, Bing Cosby, Steve Lawrence and Jonathan Winters, to name a few (trust me – there are dozens of other famous people who appeared on the show). Younger readers might not recognize some of those names, but you’ll enjoy the shows they appeared in.

The Carol Burnett Show is a variety show that features skits, singing, dancing and a stand up routine. It doesn’t matter if you are 20 or 200 – this show has something that will not only entertain you but also make you laugh. This is timeless humor. It’s just as funny today as it was back when the show first aired in 1967.

It’s fun to see how fashion and hair styles have changed over the years.

I received this set to review, but it will take me a while to get through all 60+ hours of material. This has been a great “filler” to watch at night instead of repeat after repeat until the new seasons start up again. I’m sure we’ll continue to keep watching it. Even my hard to impress teenagers laughed a few times watching this.

I haven’t even got to the bonus features yet. I have been too busy watching the episodes.

Bonus material includes:

  • Seven featurettes, including: “On the Spot: Carol’s Q&A,” “Fabulous Firsts,” “The Making of a Mackie,” “The Golden Age of the Variety Show,” “Messages to Carol” “Expecting the Unexpected” and “The Song and Dance”
  • 20+ exclusive new interviews with stars of yesteryear and today, with Alan Alda, Julie Andrews, Tony Bennett, Pat Boone, Steve Carell, Vikki Carr, Carol Channing, Kristin Chenoweth, Tina Fey, Bill Hader, Shirley Jones, Queen Latifah, Gloria Loring, Burt Reynolds, Don Rickles, Lesley Ann Warren and more!
  • A backstage tour of CBS Studio 33 where the show was originally taped
  • Never-Before-Seen Bloopers & Outtakes
  • Rare TV specials: Once Upon a Mattress starring Carol, Ken Berry and Bernadette Peters and Carol +2 featuring Lucille Ball and Zero Mostel

Wow! That is a lot of great material.

The DVDs come in five different “sets” for a total of 22 DVDs. In addition you’ll also receive a special collectible “Guest Book.” The book is about 40 pages long and features a lot of photos, notes from Carol herself, production notes, behind the scenes photos and a special section featuring celebrity autographs. This is a great book. I enjoyed reading through it.

I like that everything fits nicely in a special box. The whole collection could tuck neatly under your bed or in a closet. Or you can added the DVD sets to your current collection and re-purpose the box. It’s up to you.

The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes Ultimate Collection would make a great gift for the Carol Burnett fan. It’s also a great way to introduce your family to this timeless and ageless comedy/entertainment show.

Look for The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes Ultimate Collection where ever DVDs are sold.

The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas – in stores today! (giveaway ends 9/17/16)

 

TheProtectorCover

Summer might be over, but that doesn’t mean there are not plenty of great books that need to be read.

In stores today (September 6, 2017) is the latest book by Jodi Ellen Malpas. She is the #1 bestselling author of the This Man Triology and One Night Trilogy.

People think they have Camille Logan nailed: daddy’s girl; beautiful, spoiled young woman with her father’s bank balance to fund her lifestyle. But Camille is determined to have a life free from his strings. Out on her own, she’s made mistakes, including one that found her clawing her way back after a stint in rehab and plenty of bad press. Now, after fighting so hard to be independent and happy, she finds her life threatened as a result of her father’s ruthless business dealings. Caught between resentment and fear, Camille prepares herself for the measures her father will take to protect her. But nothing could prepare her for the ex-SAS sniper who crashes into her life.

Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell. He was distracted from duty once before, and the consequences were devastating–both personally and professionally. He vowed never to let that happen again. Accepting the job of bodyguard to Camille Logan isn’t the kind of distraction from his demons he should take. Women and Jake don’t mix well, yet protecting the heiress seems the lesser of two evils. But Jake soon discovers that she isn’t the woman she’s perceived to be. She’s warm, compassionate, her presence settling, and his duty to protect her soon goes deeper than a well-paid job, no matter how hard he fights it. He needs absolution. He comes to need Camille. But he knows he can’t have both.

It sounds interesting. I’ve never seen the film The Bodyguard (Whitney Houston, Kevin Costner), but this book kind of reminds me of what I perceive that film to be about, in a way.

Here is a trailer for the book.

 

It look like it could make a good movie too.

About the Author:

Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a Converse & mojito addict, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers.

She’s now a proud #1 New York Times bestselling author – all six of her published novels having hit the New York Times bestsellers list – as well as a Sunday Times bestseller and international bestseller. Her work is published in over 20 languages across the world.

Storks flies into theaters on September 23, 2016! (giveaway ends 9/17/16)

 

Poster

Do you remember when you were little and you asked your parents where babies come from? The stock answer was always “storks.” My mom, with her odd sense of humor, always said that babies – like myself – were found under rocks. LOL!

When I think about on my pregnancies I sometimes wish babies were delivered by storks. That would have helped with the weight gain, heartburn, nausea and swollen feet. Ha Ha.

A fun, animated film called Storks swoops into theaters on September 23, 2016. Now, instead of babies, storks deliver packages.

Storks deliver babies…or at least they used to. Now they deliver packages for global internet giant Cornerstore. Junior, the company’s top delivery stork, is about to be promoted when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine, producing an adorable and wholly unauthorized baby girl. Desperate to deliver this bundle of trouble before the boss gets wise, Junior and his friend Tulip, the only human on Stork Mountain, race to make their first-ever baby drop – in a wild and revealing journey that could make more than one family whole and restore the storks’ true mission in the world.

The film stars the voice talent of Andy Samberg, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Kelsey Grammer, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Katie Crown, and Danny Trejo.

Nicholas Stoller is the film’s Director, Writer and Producer. Stoller has brought us other great films like The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted, and Fun With Dick and Jane, to name a few.

Check out this new TV spot for the film.

 

It looks really cute and I am excited to go and see it.

The wolves crack me up ever time I see them in a promo for the film. And the baby! How cute is the baby?

STORKS

STORKS

I am curious to see what kind of Storks related goodies they come out with (games, plush, figurines…).

There is also a Stork game you can enjoy for FREE. It’s called “Tulip the Builder.” It’s an online game (not something you need to download). I like it. It reminds me of the game “Frogger” in a way.

Time to build! Help Tulip build her flying machine in the Storks Tulip the Builder game!

Check out the game here –tulipthebuilder.storksmovie.com

Storks-Tulip

I’m not much of a game player, but I do find this game fun and challenging.

If you would like to learn more about the film you can visit the Official Site. You can also “like” Storks on Facebook and follow the film on Twitter and Instagram. Be sure to check out the hashtag #Storks on social media too.
