Movie Review: The Huntsman: Winter’s War

 

The Huntsman

Available today on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and 4K Ultra HD from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is the film The Huntsman: Winter’s War.

The film stars Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Chris Hemsworth and Jessica Chastain.

If you have seen the film, Snow White and the Huntsman, staring Kristin Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth, this film is in a way a prequel and a sequel to that film.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War starts off with the evil Raveena (Theron) making her way through kingdoms and conquering them to make her queen. We also get to meet her sister Freya (Blunt). Freya is nothing like her sister. She has a kind heart and believes in things like love. In fact, Freya has been having an affair with a Nobleman. She gets pregnant and gives birth to a beautiful baby girl. Freya’s heart is filled with love. She cannot imagine loving anything more than her daughter.

Freya’s world is shattered when her lover murders her baby. The event angers Freya so much that dormant powers that lied inside of her come pouring out of her. Freya has the ability to turn things into ice. Oddly enough, Raveena is not saddened by the child’s death – she is more pleased about Freya’s evil side coming out.

Freya leaves her sister’s kingdom and makes her own kingdom in the North. She also has children taken from their families and brought to her kingdom where she teaches them to be her soldiers (huntsmen).

Two of her finest soldiers, Eric and Sara, grow up and fall in love – even though Freya is against love and teaches the child soldiers that loving is a sin and has no place in her kingdom.

When Freya finds out about their relationship she puts an immediate end to it, even if it means killing one of them off.

Erica some how survives Freya’s fate for him and is able to escape.

During his time away from Freya is when he helped Snow White defeat the evil Raveena.

Eric learns that Raveena’s magic mirror is in danger of being taken by Freya. It’s imparative that they find the mirror before she does.

With the help of some friends – and someone very unexpected – the group heads out to find the magic mirror before Freya does.

Can the group get to the mirror before Freya? What will Freya do when she finds that Eric is alive. Who is the unexpected person who helps Eric on his quest. And the biggest question of all… is Raveena really dead?

To find out the answers you need to pick up (or download) a copy of The Huntsman: Winter’s War. Look for it where ever movies are sold.

I liked the original film, Snow White and the Huntsman. I am not a fan of Kristin Stewart, but I did enjoy Charlize Theron in the movie. The special effects were amazing too.

2460_D041_00207R

I liked the story in The Huntsman: Winter’s War better. There are plenty of great special effects, but the bulk of them come at the end of the film.

Charlize Theron has the evil queen thing down perfectly. She’s such a beautiful woman but she can really turn herself into a scary “monster.” She can so easily portray pure evil. I’m very impressed. Even some of her facial expressions I found to be terrifying.

Chris Hemsworth was an excellent choice to play the Huntsman and Jessica Chastain surprised me as a fierce warrior.

I’m on the fence with Emily Blunt. Long story… I won’t go into it, but I didn’t have a pleasant experience with her (press junket – different movie).

Overall the film was entertaining. There were some slow moments, but it wasn’t too bad.

The film won’t win any movie awards, but it’s fun to watch.

The film is rated PG-13. There is some partial nudity and violence – plus a creepy looking monkey-like creature with horns that some children might find too intense.

There are some bonus features included.

Blu-ray Disc Exclusives:

  • Two Queens and Two Warriors– The true heart of The Huntsman: Winter’s War is found in its three powerful women, Ravenna, Freya, and Eric’s lost wife, Sara.

  • Meet the Dwarfs– Nick Frost’s Nion and Rob Brydon’s Gryff brought a sense of levity and fun to the adventure — especially once they met their female counterparts.

Beautiful, colorful, gem jewelry from Biographie (giveaway ends 7/31/16)

 

jewelry

Anyone who knows me personally knows that I am a simple person. I have a few main staples in my life that I stick with. That doesn’t meant that I don’t enjoy mixing things up a bit – I do! After all, I’m a Gemini and we tend to get bored with things easily. Just ask my husband and how many time I’ve asked him to re-paint rooms and move furniture and wall art around.

When I was a teen/young adult I used to go all out with my jewelry. I had jewelry is all different color and styles. I even have three holes in each ear and would wear different earrings all the time.

I never left the house without my hair perfectly coiffed, my make-up looking great and not wearing jewelry to match my ensemble (earrings, necklace, bracelet – often rings).

These days I go by the “less is more” ideology. Less make up (a lot less – as in just mascara for the most part), my hair up in a ponytail and usually just my wedding ring. I do however have other pieces of jewelry that I tend to wear often.

When I turned 16 my mom gave me the most beautiful opal ring. I still have it but it’s buried in my father’s basement in my old jewelry box. I loved that ring, but sadly she bought the wrong size and I could only wear it on my pinky.

That was the first time I ever saw an opal. I love how it had a rainbow effect to it. It was constantly changing color depending on how the light hit it. From that moment on I loved opals.

I would have to say my top three favorite gem stones are diamonds (I only own one real one – my engagement ring), emeralds (my birthstone – I also love the color green) and opals.

If you are a fan of colorful gem stones you might want to check out the website Biographie. Biographie offers stunning, colorful, and unique jewelry designs.

I love how Biographie uses colored gems to add a pop of color to their beautiful jewelry designs. Here are just a few gorgeous examples.

rose-cut-labradorite-ring__94877.1463240555

turquoise-amethyst-bracelet__22953.1466720656

It was hard for me to find some pieces to showcase in this post. There are way too many beautiful pieces to choose from.

I was fortunate that Biographie wanted to send me a piece of jewelry to review. I was sent to review an opal bracelet. I was so excited to receive it that I stalked our delivery guys every day.

This opal bracelet would be the second opal jewelry I’ve ever owned (aside from my Sweet 16 ring). This time I knew it was going to fit me, unlike the ring.

The bracelet took my breath away! It’s more beautiful in person than it appears in photos. It’s very colorful! These opals truly shine in the light – especially the sunlight! In hindsight I should have taken a photo in the sunlight to really show off how colorful these opals are.

opal 1

opal 2

opal 3

If you look at the close up photo (above) you can see the variety of colors the opals give off – from neon green to hot pink and from sky blue to orange and just about every color on the rainbow.

The bracelet is beautifully made. I always have some hesitation when I wear fine jewelry that it’s going to snap and break and I’ll lose all the gems. I didn’t feel that way with this bracelet. You can see and feel how well made it is.

I love that this bracelet can go from something casual, like running errands, to a fancy dinner or night on the town. It’s a very versatile bracelet that you can wear all day long. It’s also comfortable to wear too. I don’t even realize it’s on my write most of the time.

This has quickly become one of my favorite pieces of jewelry to wear. As I mentioned earlier I tend to be more of a minimalist. This bracelet fits right in to that way of thinking because it’s lightweight, it can go from day to night and I hardly feel that I am wearing it.

I won’t wear this to work only because I work with little kids and I often come home with glue, paint or other sticky things on my person. I don’t want to take a chance of getting something on my bracelet from Biographie. I wear my bracelet outside of work (I just take it off and put it back one before/after work).

If you would like to learn more about Biographie, or check out the beautiful gem jewelry, visit Biographie.com. The brand is also found on social media. All of their links are found on the bottom left of their homepage.

Necklace

Biographie has generously offered to give a lucky reader a lovely opal necklace valued at $150. The necklace is gold with a 16″ chain. If the chain is too small you could always move the opal charms to a longer chain.

Smart Portable Car Jump Starter Powerbank for Smartphones & Digital Devices

 

Technology

Let’s face it – we live in a digital world. Most people can’t function without their smartphone or tablet in their hands at all times. Personally, I don’t care. Half the time I don’t even know where my phone is. My kids on the other hand sleep with their phones right next to them at night. Even my husband will get up in the middle of the night when “nature calls,” and can’t go back to sleep until he checks Twitter. Seriously? Nothing is that important that it can’t wait until the morning.

When you have all these devices it’s imperative that you have the means to recharge them whenever possible.

I found out the hard way the importance of having the best power bank charger or back up power source for your smartphone. I came home from a trip on the West coast. It was late at night and car service was going to pick me up to take me home. My phone had died and I had no way of contacting them to let them know where I was waiting for them. I had to look for a payphone to make a collect call to my husband. He had to be the in-between person between me and car service. It was horrible! From that point on I won’t leave the house without a way of charging  my phone.

Most people have portable chargers of some sort. They come in all different shapes and sizes. Personally I keep a lipstick size one in my purse and one in my car that plugs into the cigarette lighter.

The company 1 by One has taken portable chargers two a whole new level. Their Smart Portable Car Jump Starter Powerbank for Smartphones & Digital Devices not only charges your smartphone, tablet and other devices, but it can also jump start your car.

charger

1 by One sent me one to review.

The set comes inside a portable carrying case. The entire “kit” is lightweight and easy to tote around. It’s also small enough that it will take up very little room in your car. You could keep this under your car’s seat or even in the magazine pocket found on the back of some car seats.

Inside the kit you’ll find the charging unit, the plug to charge the charging unit and jumper cables. The only thing it doesn’t have, which I wish it did, was a charging plug to allow you to charge this device on-the-go from in your car. In order to charge it you have to plug it into a wall outlet.

First and foremost let me talk about the charging unit and charging your phone, tablet or similar device.

Everything is housed nicely in a lightweight carrying case.

Inside the case everything has it's own compartment. Instructions are also included.

Inside the case everything has it’s own compartment. Instructions are also included.

There is a USB opening on the charging unit that will allow you to plug in your smart phone, tablet or other device. You must already own the necessary cable. It does not come with one. You can use the one that came with your device or pick up a spare one. Most stores carry charging cables (Rite Aid, Walmart, Target, Radio Shack…).

As far as a charger goes, this unit works great. It does exactly what you would expect it to.

I will continue to charge my phone from the charger that plugs into my car’s cigarette lighter outlet. However if that is not possible I will certainly use the charger from the Smart Portable Car Jump Starter Powerbank.

This charger would be great for people who enjoy hiking and camping and other outdoor things were a wall outlet or car outlet is not readily available.

charger 2

This charger (powerbank) can jump start your car’s battery.

I cannot tell you how many times I have had to call for AAA because my car battery was dead. Usually it’s the overhead light in the car that was left on.

I don’t know the first thing about charging cars or where to plug things in. I leave that up to my husband or AAA person.

What if there was no one around to assist you with jump starting your car? What if AAA was unable to get to you in time? Sometimes they can take upwards of an hour to get to you. When you are running late for work that is not always doable.

I have seen units that you can buy to jump start cars but they are big, bulky and expensive. This littler charger can do the work of those very same devices.

The only way to test this was to have a dead car battery. That was a bit of a dilemma. I would have to intentionally let the battery die in my car. I was reluctant to do that because what if it didn’t work? I can’t wait a long time for AAA to come and jump start my car for me. I have to get to work.

car charger device

I couldn’t bring myself to do that. I even kept an eye out for neighbors in our condo complex that might have needed a jump but I never saw anyone.

To be honest to date I have not been able to test out the car jump feature. I cannot provide you with an honest opinion about that.

The unit also does not start cars with high power or diesel. My car is not diesel. I am not sure what power it uses (high? average?).

I did check out reviews from others on Amazon.com in regards to the ability for this device to jump start cars. You can find the device here on Amazon – 1byone 9000mAh 12V Multi-Function Smart Portable Car Jump Starter Powerbank for Smartphones & Digital Devices.

I read the reviews (it has 4.1 stars out of a possible 5 on Amazon). Many people commented in their reviews how well the device jump started their cars.  The products reviews are 80% four star (which is the highest) and only 7% one star, so that tells me its a pretty good device.

I like the idea of having a viable mean to jump start my car if/when I need it again. Often I park my car next to the wall (the front of the car facing a high wall) which makes it hard for a traditional car-to-car jump. I like the idea of knowing I have this device in my trunk to help me get my car started so I don’t have to wait an hour for AAA to show up.

I also like having portable charging power for all my other devices, especially when a car or wall outlet is not available.

flashlight

I neglected to mention that the device also has a built in flashlight, which is another very handy feature, especially if you find yourself broken down late at night.

Overall, for the feature and the price (currently $76.99 on Amazon) it’s a handy product to have on hand in case of emergencies. This would also make a great gift for a new car owner/driver.

For more information visit the product page on Amazon (the link is above). For more information about 1 by One visit 1byOne.com. The sell other really cool techie devices.

What do you think about the Multi-Function Smart Portable Car Jump Starter Powerbank? Does it look like a product you would want to own?

Never “misplace” your car again with ZUS – the smart car charger

 

cars

Has this ever happened to you – you park your car in a crowded parking lot (for example a county fair, a packed mall during the holidays…) and you forget where you parked your car? It’s happened to me more times than I’d like to remember.

The photo (above) is from the last time my family and I went to the county fair. If you forget where you park you are in big trouble because it’s almost like trying to find a “needle in a haystack.”

You could set off your car’s alarm (if you have one), but that can be a bit embarrassing. What else can you do?

Introducing ZUS – the “smart” car charger that helps you to locate your car.

ZUS is first and foremost a charger for your car so that you can charge your smartphone or other devices. It features dual port so that you can charge two devices at the same time. With two teenagers I can appreciate that. That way there is no fighting over who can charge their phone first on long car rides.

ZUS Charger

You will need the plug to connect your phone into the charger. It does not come with one. You already have one since you need it to charge your device. You can pick up an extra one just about anywhere. I keep extras in my car’s glove compartment “just in case.”

ZUS is unassuming looking. It looks like a regular car charger – but “regular” this charger is NOT.

This German designed charger can charge your device 2 times faster than other chargers. For example, ZUS can charge two iPhone 6s phones in 2 hours where as other chargers take 3-4 hours. Or you can charge to iPad minis in just shy of 4 hours where as other chargers can take up to 8 hours.

ZUS is also lighted, so it’s easy to find in the dark. It comes with and ElegantShineTM Lighting System, which is a top of the line lighting for increased visibility in dark environments.

For me the BEST feature is ZUS’s ability to help you track down your car if you forget where you are parked. It uses GPS to track where are and where you parked your car.

ZUS 2

To use ZUS’s tracking option you will need to download the FREE ZUS app and set up your account (name, email address and password). Then you just need to pair/connect your ZUS and you are ready to enjoy the benefits of this awesome charger.

If you forget where your car is parked simply open up the app on your smartphone or device. ZUS will provide you with a map of where you are in relationship to your car. It will also tell you what direction to walk in and how many feet away your car is. When you are in a close proximity of your car, ZUS will alert you to it.

*The ZUS app utilizes your phone’s GPS to help you find your car. ZUS works best with cars parked where GPS signal is strong such as open lots.

The blue “dot” is my location and the “P” is where my car is parked.

ZUS screen shot

When I took this screen shot my car was 375 feet away from where I was and the arrow points in which direction I should go to find my car.

Screen Shot

Another example that shows how far away my car was and which direction I should go.

ZUS

ZUS lets you know when your car is nearby.

I was concerned that I would have to keep ZUS plugged in for it to work. I didn’t want it to drain my battery. That is not the case at all. When not in use I keep ZUS in my glove compartment and I am still able to enjoy the GPS function.

ZUS can also keep track of how long you have been parked. You can set an alarm and ZUS will notify you 10 minutes before the alarm is up, giving you ample time to feed the parking meter or pick up your car from a paid parking spot.

Here is some additional information about ZUS.

Features

ZUS is available for $35.99 at www.Nonda.co (notice it’s .co and NOT .com). The band can also be found on social media. All of their links are found at the bottom (left) of their website.

Movie Review: Sisters

 

Sisters Poehler Fey

Available today on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD is the movie Sisters.

Sisters stars Tine Fey, Amy Poehler, James Brolin, Diane Weist, Maya Rudolph, John Cena and John Leguizamo.

Maura (Poehler) and Kate Ellis are sisters. They are the complete opposite of on another when it comes to their personalities. Maura is very kind and caring. She has her act together and is perfectly content living alone, after her divorce, with her adopted dog.

Kate is the opposite of her younger sister Maura. She can’t keep a job, she bounces from home to home and she loves to party and have fun. Her daughter Haley is not fond of her mother’s wild ways and refuses to live with her. Instead she stays at friend’s houses.

One day Maura and Kate’s parents (Brolin and Weist) lay a bomb shell on Maura – they are putting their childhood home up on the market. Even though Maura is devastated to hear that, her parents leave it up to her to tell her sister Kate about it. They also need Maura and Kate to come back to Orlando and clean out all of their stuff from the bedroom they shared.

Maura is able to lure Kate back to Orlando. She tricks Kate into going back to their childhood home only to find that their parents lied to them. Their childhood home is not on the market – it’s been sold to a snooty couple from New York City.

Sisters movie screen shot

Maura and Kate have only a few day to clear out their stuff before the final inspection for the buyers.

Before leaving their childhood home forever, Maura and Kate decide to throw one last party. Their parties were epic back when they were teenagers, so they reached out to their childhood friends and invited them to their party.

Kate also has Maura invite their handsome neighbor from down the street. Maura has been divorced for a long time and Kate things she needs to use this party as an excuse to “hook up” with the handsome neighbor.

Kate was always the one who had fun at their parties and Maura was the one to play “Party Mom” – the one who made sure that everyone was safe and taken care of. This time around Maura wants Kate to be “Party Mom” so that she can let her “freak flag fly.” Kate reluctantly agrees.

Initially their party is about as fun as a funeral. Their friends are mostly married and parents now and forgot how to have fun. Determined to make this a night to remember, the girls do everything they can to wake the party up.

Maura and Kate’s party is filling in full swing – and getting seriously out of control. Have they gone too far? To find out you need to pick up a copy of Sisters, now available where ever movie are sold.

I was sent the movie to review. There are two options on the Blu-ray/DVD set – the theatrical version of the film and the unrated version. I watched the unrated version. I am not sure how much of a difference there is between the two. My review is based on the unrated version. The version shown in theaters might be slightly different.

The story line is pretty good. I think many people can relate to losing the home they grew up in. My childhood home was sold to someone else last year. It’s hard to believe that it’s no longer a part of our family. We were the ONLY family to live in it up until last year. It’s hard to think about never having a chance to visit the room I slept in and the playroom that I spend many hours playing in.

Sister movie ss

I also think some people can relate to being a total opposite of their sibling/siblings. My husband is a perfect example of that. He is nothing like his siblings. It’s as if he’s not even related to them – that is how different he is.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were perfectly cast for these roles. I couldn’t see another set of comedians playing these parts. They brought their typical brand of humor to the movie. They also have great chemistry together.

I saw the unrated version and there was a lot of foul language, sex talk, adult humor, drug use and drinking. There was a bit too much foul language, sex talk and adult humor for my taste, but I know other people find that kind of stuff really funny.

The film is long (a little over two hours) but surprisingly it didn’t seem that long. There was no “lag time” or slow moments.

The movie is fun and entertaining, if you can get past the stuff that makes the film “R” rated.

There are some bonus features including deleted scenes, extended scenes and bloopers.

Here is the film’s trailer for your entertainment. It’s the theatrical trailer. The movie is now available for home viewing.

ROBOCOPP Sound Grenade – Personal Safety Device

 

Safety

I have always been an overly protective parent. There was a time when I wouldn’t let my kids go downstairs to get the mail (we live in a condo building). Our mail boxes are inside. We also know all of our neighbors in our condo building. My kids were safe enough getting the mail – I just worried about them being out of site.

My husband and I used to stand on our balcony or next to the window to watch the kids walk the dog. We wouldn’t even let them go away from the front of our building.

Fast forward to today. Our daughter will be 19 this year. She goes to college and has a boyfriend. Just this past Friday her and her boyfriend went to New York City to see a concert. They were down in the city for most of the day and she didn’t get home until 12:30 AM. I had no clue what they were doing or where they were. We do have “Find My Phone” on our phones, so I can see where she is for the most part, but that doesn’t mean much.

I worry about my kid and their safety. Especially our daughter because she take public transportation to/from school/home and to work from school. She has to walk a bit from the bus stop to her job. That worries me a lot because she’s always telling me about men and teenage boys who’ll try and talk to her (while driving their cars next to her), whistle at her and shout comments at her. She knows enough to ignore them and keep walking, but you never know. Someone could come up from behind her and attack her. THANKFULLY she works during the day, and it’s a busy road, but still… I worry.

PHOTO SOURCE: WikiCommons – Man getting sprayed with Mace/Pepper Spray

We have looked into personal safety devices for her to carry on her at all times. We thought about pepper spray. It is legal where we live. The only downside is that if you are being attacked you’ll have to try and find the spray in your pocket or purse, open it and make sure you are spraying in the right direction. I think that is too involved and she needs something she can activate in a heartbeat.

A few months ago I was sent information about a device called a Grenade. It’s from the company ROBOCOPP. The Sound Grenade is a personal safety device that can be activated simply by pulling on it.

The Sound Grenade is a very unassuming looking device. It’s about the size of a ChapStick lip balm (just a bit wider).

ROBOCOPP Sound Grenade

On one end is a black “plug” (for lack of a better description) and a string that you can use to attach the Grenade to a belt loop, key chain, purse strap or anywhere else on your person.

Sound Grenade is super easy to use and can be activated instantly simply by pulling the plug. Once the plug is removed the Sound Grenade emits an ear shattering a 120-decibel (ambulance-level) alarm. Once the plug is inserted back into the Sound Grenade the siren shuts off and the device can be used again and again (hopefully you’ll never have to use it in the first place).

Here is some additional information about the ROBOCOPP Sound Grenade.

  • 120 dB Siren
  • Dimensions: 2.79 x 1.22 x 0.51 in.
  • Weight: Less than 1 oz.
  • Battery: Included
  • TSA Accepted – Permitted on Airlines
  • Works under water
  • Quality Manufacturing: 5 YEAR WARRANTY
  • Operating Temperature Range:   -10*C to 40*C / 14*F to 104*F

We were sent the Sound Grenade to review. OUCH! Is that siren loud! It felt like it was piercing my eardrums.

Sound Grenade

We set the alarm off inside our home (we didn’t want to do it in public and concern people). Our pets were NOT happy at all. We tried to do it away from them but it’s so loud they could still hear it and they scattered trying to find some place to hide.

This is the perfect safety device for our daughter. She can keep it on her bag so that it’s always handy. The plug (pin?) is in the Sound Grenade securely enough so it can’t be accidentally pulled. It has to be pulled with some force.

This is not only good for deterring would-be attackers, it would also work for scaring away animals such as dogs and wildlife. We see stray dogs from time to time and this would certainly scare them off. We also have bears and coyotes in the area and I think it would work for them as well.

ROBOCOPP Sound Grenade

The ROBOCOPP Sound Grenade is an easy to use, affordable safety device that children and adults can use. Of course you would have to instruct your child NOT to play around with it or pull the plug to show friends how it works.

A single Sound Grenadesells for $23.99 on the ROBOCOPP website. A family pack of FIVE (5) Grenades is only $99.00. I think that is a small investment for a safety device for the entire family.

If you would like to learn more about ROBOCOPP and/or the Sound Grenade visit the ROBOCOPP website, ROBOCOPP.com. ROBOCOPP can also be found across the social media channels. All of those links are found on the bottom left of their website.

Be sure to check out their “Campus Safety” section if you or a loved one is in college. There is also a section of personal stories worth checking out.

The Sound Grenade is not only a great safety device, but it can also be used to alert people if you need help. One of the real stories on their site was from a person who had a stroke while out riding a bike. At that time the person didn’t have a Sound Grenade and had to rely on a dog barking to get attention. Had he had a Grenade he could have activated it and got the attention of people near by.
