Trolls World Tour – Available TODAY on Blu-ray, DVD, Ultra 4K and Digital

 

Get ready to put your dancing shoes on because Trolls World Tour is available TODAY on Blu-ray, Ultra 4K and DVD (it’s been available on Digital for a while).

Trolls World Tour is a sequel to the original Trolls film. It reprises the roles of Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justine Timberlake) and introduces many new characters and “troll worlds.”

There are a lot of other celebrities that lend their voices to characters in Trolls World Tour including Rachel Bloom, James Cordon, Kelly Clarkson, Sam Rockwell, George Clinton, Mary J. Blige, Kenan Thompson, Kunal Nayyar, and Ron Fuches to name a few.

In this film, Poppy and Branch learn that they are not the only trolls around. Once upon a time, a long time ago, different troll tribes, who each played a different kind of music, were each given a special string from a magical harp which game them their magical powers. The trolls divided up into different groups – Pop, Funk, Country, Techno, Classical and Rock. Each group of trolls enjoyed that specific genre of music.

Unbeknownst to them at the time, and evil troll, Queen Barb from the Rock trolls, invades the techno trolls to steal their string and turning music into nothing (just sounds, not actual music) and the trolls into “rock zombies.”

Poppy, with the help of Branch and a new friend, travel to the different troll lands in hopes of uniting everyone to stop Queen Barb before she can gather all of the strings, making her impossible to stop.  Trying to reason with Queen Barb didn’t help, so uniting the troll lands, despite their musical differences, is their only option.

It’s a race against time, as well as the evil Queen Barb, to help save their beloved music. Will they succeed, or will Queen Barb destroy all of their music once and for all? To find out, you need to purchase or rent Trolls World Tour. Look for it wherever movies are sold/rented.

I watched the digital version of the film, so I did not see any bonus content. There is a lot of bonus content on the Blu-ray, DVD and Ultra 4K including;

Dance Party Mode – As Queen Poppy makes her way across the lands, this on-screen experience encourages the viewer to sing and dance along as they customize their own musical journey. With sing-along and dance elements, interactive pop ups and more, it’s sure to be a world of fun!

Tiny Diamond Goes Back to School – In this exclusive original short film, journey back to school with Tiny Diamond as he tries to figure out how to be the cool kid and ‘fit in’.

Trolls Dance Academy – Compilation of How-To-Dance pieces from Dance Party Mode for Pop, Waltz, Country, Funk, KPop and Reggaeton.

Trolls World Tourist Map – Cloud Guy provides a quick “tourist guide’s” view of the six realms that make up Trolls Kingdom (Trolls Village, Symphonyville, Lonesome Flats, Vibe City, Volcano Rock City and Techno Reef),

Deleted Scenes

Trolls Perfect Harmony – Hear from the star-studded cast of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, Kunal Nayyar, James Corden and the filmmakers about the history of music featured in the film. From classical to country to rock, pop and techno, the cast and filmmakers reveal their favorite types of music.

Trolls World Tour Backstage – A behind-the-scenes making of featurette showcases Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Rachel Bloom, Ron Funches, George Clinton, Mary J. Blige, Sam Rockwell and Kenan Thompson as some of the talent behind the Trolls and the process of bringing the them to life – Opening Act, Headliners and Encore!

Commentary 

This film is a lot different than the first one. The first film, Trolls, was just sugary-sweet and adorable to watch. Compared to this film, the first one is a lot “mellow.” This film is like the first film, but a high-octane version.

I like the premise of this film. It’s a fun concept. I just wish they didn’t introduce so many new characters. A handful would have been sufficient.

I liked the music in this film. It’s fun to see the various genres of film represented in this film. It’s a nice way to introduce children to the various types of music. Sometimes children only know what their parents listen to. It’s great to open their minds and ears to new music.

This is a bright, colorful film with laughs that will appeal more so to children than adults. Children will no doubt be fully engaged in this film, while parents might see it more as an “escape” from the day’s stresses (more so the current events happening right now). As an adult, I certainly didn’t mind not having to put on my “thinking cap.” I rather enjoyed just being entertained with nothing else to think about.

I do hope that little kids don’t think rock music is bad or evil. It’s certainly not. It’s just as enjoyable as the other genres.

Here is some fun bonus content for you to enjoy while you watch Trolls World Tour with your family and friends.

#CampWarnerBros Week #2 – Make a fun & delicious treat while watching Steven Universe: The Movie

 

Welcome fellow camp directors (moms, dads, grandparents, guardians…) and campers! Welcome to week two of #CampWarnerBros. I hope that you had a chance to watch last week’s movie, LEGO DC: Shazam! Magic and Monsters and had a chance to create your own superhero costumes. If you didn’t get the chance to watch it yet, I hope you’ve added it to your summer watch list.

This is a new week at #CampWarnerBros, which means I have something fun to share with you, as well as another movie you and your family might want to enjoy together.

This week we’re making crystal gems. Many people (meaning us adults) already know what crystal gems are. We know them as “rock candy.” My husband LOVES rock candy. Every time we visit the local farmer’s market he always wants to pick up a couple to snack on. Being diabetic, it’s not exactly a healthy choice for me (sugar!).

I work in an after school program. I have seen some of the science classes making crystal gems, but I never know how they made them. Now I know, and I am going to share that with you and your campers.

Here is your list of ingredients and how you’ll go about making the crystal gems. The image is not exactly clear enough (I had to resize it to fit on my site), but you can get a larger (clearer) version (one you can save and print out if you’d like) but clicking here – Steven Universe’s Crystal Gem Candy

I had plenty of the ingredients on hand (sugar, tall glasses, paper clips, pencils…). What I didn’t have was food coloring. No big deal, or so I thought. I went to four – yes FOUR – stores and all I could find was gel food coloring. Two stores had nothing at all, and two only had the gel food coloring. I took my change and picked up the gel food coloring. Just to make sure the gel food coloring wouldn’t ruin my crystal gem candy, I made two of them – one with food coloring, one with out.

My next issue was that I couldn’t find cotton string or food twine. I thought that was not a big deal. I thought I could use brand new, thin, shoelaces. I figured they were made of cotton or a similar material.

I followed the directions exactly, making two different glasses – one plain, one with food coloring (I did red and blue because I wanted to make purple crystal gem candy).

Sadly, something happened along the way and it didn’t work out for me. At first I thought it was the gel food coloring, but that wouldn’t explain why the other glass didn’t work. The only thing they had in common that varied from the directions was the string. Lesson learned – DON’T USE SHOELACES.

Oh well…

You can find an image of what it was supposed to look like here at ScienceFun.org. You can also check out the hashtag #CampWarnerBros on social media to see how it worked out for other #CampWarnerBros camp directors and campers.

After four days, nothing happened. Sigh…

Here is some additional information to help with enjoy this fun project even more.

The Science Behind The Fun:

As time passes (and the solution cools), the water will slowly evaporate from the solution. As the water evaporates, the solution will become more saturated with sugar. The sugar molecules will collect on the string, and the candy crystals will grow molecule by molecule!

Extra Science Fun:

Try making two jars of candy. In the first jar – seed your “Crystal Gem” Candy by rolling your string in water and sugar. In the second jar do not seed your string with sugar before growing. Determine if using seed sugar crystals changes the growth rate of your “Crystal Gem” Candy!

After you make (and eat!) your crystal gem candy, why not put on a fun, family movie that has to do with colorful gems – Steven Universe: The Movie.

I first learned about Steven Universe last year when I was substituting as a site director at one of our after school program sites. One of the boys in that program LOVED Steven Universe. Since I never heard of the show before, I Googled it.

Steven Universe was on the Cartoon Network. Now you can find the episodes on Hulu and HBO Max, to name a few.

There is a movie based on the characters and show, appropriately entitled, Steven Universe: The Movie. Warner Bros was kind enough to send me a digital code so I could watch the movie with my family.

Steven is older than he is in the series. He’s now 16 years old.

He is given the opportunity to remain on Gem Homeworld, but he’s opted not to. He’s done with everything and just wants to sit back and relax on Earth with his best friends. The Diamonds try to get him to stay there with them and fulfill Pink Diamond’s role as leader, but he refuses.

Back on Earth, Steven and his friends Pearl, Garnet and Amethyst are set to appreciate their new “happily ever after.” Sadly, their joy is short lived with a new threat lands on Earth.

 

An evil gem named Spinel has landed on Earth and intends on killing Steven and all life on Earth. She manages to zap Pearl, Garnett and Amethyst back into gems. She also sucks a lot of Steven’s gem powers from him before he is able to grab a hold of her weapon and zap her into a gem, just like she did to his friends.

With his dad’s help, Steven is able to regenerate the gems, but they are not the same people they were. It’s as if their memories have been erased. Even Spinel has no clue that she’s really evil and out to destroy Steven and the rest of Earth.

Now it’s up to Steven, his father and his other friends to return the gems back to the people they once were.

Will they succeed? To find out you need to watch Steven Universe: The Movie. Look for it where ever movies are sold/rented.

Since I’ve never watched the show before, I was a bit confused as to the backstory, but I did my best to follow along. After a while I was understanding their backstories.

I should mention that this is a musical. There are plenty of songs (brief) throughout the film. This is also a sing-a-long movie with the words appearing on the bottom of the screen. All you have to do is follow along with the bouncing yellow star and sing along with the rest of the characters on the film.

I enjoyed the film. I’m not sure if my husband would or my kids (since my kinds are 20 and 23 years old). I’m sure younger children will enjoy this because of the colorful collection of characters, action, and sci-fi’ness to it.

Combined with the crystal gem candy project, this would make for a fun “camp day” with you and your family.

I hope that you’ll check out my site next week for week #3 of #CampWarnerBros, where I’ll have more fun ideas you can do with your camper this summer.

Jungle Beat: The Movie – A Fun Animated Family Film

 

If you are following the CDC guidelines, chances are you and your family are spending a lot more time at home than you would normally spend during non-pandemic times. I personally barely ever leave the house, except for doctor’s visits (ones I can’t do via Zoom) or to pick up medications.

Because I am spending a crazy amount of time at home, I am desperate for things to see and do to occupy my time.

My family and I are always on the look out for movies we can watch together. My kids are older (23 and almost 21), so usually they go for comedies or horror movies. My husband and I are “big kids” at heart, so we will often look for movies that people of all ages can enjoy – including animated films and ones that are seen more so as “kiddie films.”

I recently had the opportunity to review a new, family friendly, animated film that took me by complete surprise. It’s called Jungle Beat: The Movie.

I will be honest with you. I’m not always a fan of films that I’ve never heard of before, and by that I mean advertised on television or in advertising. In my experience, those types of films are not really that good. They usually have a very low budget or they are put out by itty bitty film studios. BUT… then I learned that Jungle Beat is NOT some no-name film. It’s actually based on a series by the same name.

In my defense, my kids are young adults. Jungle Beat, the series, must have come out long after my kids graduated from high school.

The Jungle Beat series features short episodes (only a few minutes long) featuring animals in crazy predicaments. You can learn more about Jungle Beat (the series) on their official website, JungleBeat.TV.

When I heard about Jungle Beat: The Movie, I looked up the trailer. I always look up the trailer for films.

The trailer looked really cute, so I figured why not give the film a chance.

Here is the trailer for the film.

 

It looks really cute, doesn’t it?

Here is the official synopsis of the film;

One morning, the animals of the jungle wake up to discover that they can speak. They’re even more amazed when they learn the reason why: There’s an alien in the jungle! Little Fneep has come to conquer the planet and has brought some crazy tech with him, including a translation device that lets them talk for the first time.

Unfortunately for the intergalactic Scaldronian empire, but fortunately for the jungle, Fneep is a terrible conqueror: He’s homesick, he’s crashed his ship, and he’s no match for the antics of Munki, Trunk and the gang.

Our heroes won’t let a little alien conquest get in the way of a good time or a new friend! As the animals help him on his journey home, he learns that friendship could be the greatest force in the universe. But is it a match for a spaceship full of aliens?

I watched this film on my own. I wasn’t sure what to expect, so I didn’t want to watch it with my husband and kids (yet).

This is such a cute film! This is a marvelous film for the whole family. Young children will love the action and the characters, older children and adults will appreciate the humor (little kids will too). It’s just an all-around, feel good, ideal family film.

The characters are all darling. I think my favorite is Rocky the Rhino. He has a delightful innocence to him, and he behaves a lot like a dog.

Humph the Hedgehog and Baby the baby ostrich are also favorite character of mine from this film.

Since I’ve never head of Jungle Beat before, I assumed this was a musical film, with a lot of singing and songs. That is not the case at all. There were some wildebeests that tried to see who was the best singer, but they didn’t really break out into song.

The story line is wonderful with a great lesson in friendship and how love can conquer all.

The animation is suburb. It’s all CGI. Some CGI (Computer Generated Images) look horrible, but not in this film. They look perfect. They put great detail into this film from start to finish.

The characters are all charming. It’s hard not to like any of them, even the “bad guy” (Fneep’s father).

I enjoyed this film from start to finish. Not once did I look at it as a “kiddie film.” This is a film for all ages to enjoy.

If you are interested in learning more about this film, you can visit it’s official website, JungleBeattheMovie.com. The film can also be found on social media. Their links are on the top right of the film’s official website.

You can see what others are saying about the film on social media using the hashtag #JungleBeattheMovie.

The film is currently available on Amazon Prime, Apple TV and Google Play.

Welcome to #CampWarnerBros – Week #1 – Super Hero Week!

 

School’s Out! It’s summer time! It’s the time of year that most children look forward to. They can sleep in late, hang out with their friends and go on fun adventures with their families. Another thing that kids look forward to is summer camp. Sadly, due to the current state of affairs, summer camp might not be an option for many kids this year.

Just because your child can’t attend summer camp this year, doesn’t mean they can’t have a fun time this summer. You can have your own camp, right in the comfort of your own home.

Warner Bros. wants to help make your child’s summer experience super fun, whether they attend camp or not, with their first ever Camp Warner Bros.

I was lucky to be chosen as a Camp Warner Bros. Camp Director. Each week, for the next several weeks, I will share with your some fun summer camp ideas, crafts, games, movies and more, compliments of Camp Warner Bros.

This is the first week of Camp Warner Bros. The theme for the week is Super Heroes.

What kid doesn’t love super heroes? Even girls like super heroes, or at least in my experience they do.

Growing up I LOVED Wonder Woman (Linda Carter… yeah… I’m giving away my age). I thought she was the coolest person on the planet. I wanted a golden lasso and an invincible jet plane.

Whenever me and my friends played super heroes, I was always Wonder Woman. It didn’t matter that I looked nothing like her. In my mind I did.

I work with children, and I know how much they love super heroes. So much so that they like pretending they are their favorite super hero and acting out action scenes. Even my 6th graders last school year pretended to be super heroes and have “battles” with their super hero nemesis.

I have a special video for all Camp Warner Bros. campers (you and your child!), from Batman himself. I hope you will check it out with your child. Batman has some fun games he wants to play with your child and other Camp Warner Bros. campers.

 

What did you think if Batman’s fun activities? How did you do with the memory game? I did really good (I got them all correct!).

I’m sure now that your child has watched Batman’s special video for all Camp Warner Bros. campers, he or she is probably looking forward to some fun pretending to be their favorite super hero. Or, he/she might want to create their very own super hero.

One thing we’ve done with the kids I work with is provide them with scrap pieces of material, old clothing, craft glue, embellishments and cardboard and let them creature their own super hero costume. Not only is this a creative activity to help pass the time away, it’s also a great way for your child to utilize their creativity and imagination. Plus what ever they create they can wear and play with all summer long.

Here are a few examples the kids I worked with made.

Old clothes and wings made out of cardboard make for a fun costume.

Old pajamas and a super hero mask make great costumes too.

Tie Dye pants, fabric painted shirt and a mask made out of foam board.

The above photo is an actual costume. If your child has a super hero costume, they can always use that to play around in as well.

You can also check out Pinterst for more fun ideas to create your own super hero costume.

Go ahead. Gather up all your old clothes, scrap pieces of material, tie dye kits, cardboard an anything else you can think of and let’s see how creative you and your child can be. I would LOVE to see your photos. Feel free to share them at Kimberly “at” SheScribes “dot” com (replace “at” with a @, and “dot” with a .). I would love to add some reader’s photos to this post. I would love to see what kind of awesome super hero costumes you can make.

Speaking of super heroes, after your child has finished with their one of of kind super hero costume, why not wear it while watching a move about super heroes? A great choice would be LEGO DC: Shazam! Magic and Monsters.

As a camp director, I was given the opportunity to see the movie for myself.

I love the LEGO movies. Not only are they a lot of fun to watch, I think it’s really creative how the film makers made everything in the film look like it was made out of LEGO bricks. LEGO movies are also really funny, and this film is no exception.

This is the first time that the Justice League gets to meet Shazam!

Unbeknownst to the Justice League (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman…), Shazam! is really a 10 year old orphan boy named Billy Batson.

Billy has always wanted to be a super hero. He’s always admired them, even when he was younger.

Thanks to the help of a wizard, Billy can transform himself into Shazam! simply by shouting out his super hero name (Shazam!).

The Justice League is quick to ask Shazam! to join them after he helps them fight off Mr. Mind’s minions. Soon they find that Mr. Mind is not the only bad guy in town, and they need Shazam! now more than ever. The only problem is, Billy is afraid that if they learn he’s only a boy, that they won’t want anything to do with him.

It soon becomes apparent tot he Justice League that age is only a number, and even the youngest person can be the mightiest of heroes.

I loved this film. I thought it was a lot of fun. It’s just as good as the other LEGO films that were released in theaters.

I really liked the new characters (monsters), especially the batman monster (not to be confused with the real Batman).

Seeing your favorite super heroes as children is funny too. They bicker and act just like kids would do. They also have to get creative with their super hero vehicles since they are turned into pint sized versions of their adults selves.

I liked the ending of the film too. I honestly didn’t see it coming. Let’s just say that it’s a VERY happy ending for Billy Batson.

Check out the film’s trailer.

 

This is a great film for super hero wannabes, fans of DC comics, and fans of LEGO movies. I was pleasantly surprised.

I hope that you’ll check out my site next week for week #2 of Camp WB Bros., where I’ll have more fun ideas you can do with your camper this summer.

Movie Review: 2040 – Now available in virtual theaters

 

The world is in a much different place than it was a year ago. This year has been the craziest year in recent history. The pandemic, protesting, killer hornets… it just seems like one thing after another. What next? An alien invasion?

Sadly, it seems like it’s one thing after another. I know there is already so much on our “plates” right now, but there is something else we should consider, and never forget about – our environment. While we are racing to find a vaccine to present the COVID-19 virus, and trying to find a way to resolve racial inequality, there are still things happening all around us – deforestation, melting polar ice caps, pollution, too much burning of fossil fuels – and this list goes on.

I don’t know about you, but I wish I had a magic ball that could tell me what life will be like six months from now, a year from now and even three years from now. I’m sure I’m not alone in my thoughts.

What if we could take a look far into the future. Well, not that far. How about 2040. That is a mere twenty hears from now. I should be retired by then, and hopefully living in a little cottage with my husband up in Maine (or someplace else beautiful). Hopefully by then we’ll all be living in peace and harmony, and I pray that there are no more pandemics.

There is a new documentary out right now available in virtual theaters, called 2040. It’s a look into the future and what our world might be like.

Here is a brief synopsis of the film;

Motivated by his 4-year-old daughter and concern for the planet she will inherit, award-winning Australian director Damon Gameau (​That Sugar Film, 2015​), embarks on a global journey to discover what the future of the planet could look like by the year 2040 if we embraced the best solutions already available to us, and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.

Guided by the voices of 100 child interviewees aged 6 to 11 who describe the kind of world they would like to see by the year 2040, Damon draws on the best minds from around the world across climate, economics, technology, civil society, education, agriculture and sustainability to conjure a positive portrait of what ‘could be’, instead of the dystopian future we are so often presented.

What I love about documentaries is that you get to learn about a lot of things you might not otherwise know about. This film really opened my eye to current technologies and practices currently in place that could benefit all of us, as well as our planet, if we could implement them worldwide today.

As a parent myself, I am also concerned about what our planet will be like for my children as they get older, as well as my future grandchild and God willing, great-grandchildren. I certainly don’t want to learn Earth knowing that it’s a mess.

Every day I think about what could “I” do better to make our planet a better, healthier, happier place to live. We conserve electricity, try to limit using our cars whenever possible, recycle, repurpose and re-use things… the list goes on.

This documentary features dozens of children who are also concerned about our planet – their planet – and what concerns they have and what they would like to see for THEIR future. Hearing the heartfelt thoughts from these children really brought the message home to me. We need to do more and we need to do it NOW before it’s too late.

The film’s director, Damon Gameau, travels around the world and meets with people that are doing their part TODAY to help us have a better tomorrow. He meets with people in Bangladesh that have implemented solar micro-grids to help provide energy to communities, as well as a way to help poor people make money. He learns about driver-less cars that we can all share that would help reduce the number of cars on the road.

There is so much “eye opening” information in this film. I think it’s wonderful that there are solutions currently going on around the globe. All we need now is for all countries to “get on board” with them so we can start to heal our planet NOW before it’s too late.

To learn more about this must-see film, visit WhatsYour2040.com. The film is also found on social media.

Below is the film’s trailer for your enjoyment.

What would you like to see happen by 2040? What are things you feel we need to do, as a planet, to make those changes happen? Feel free to comment and share your thoughts. I always love to hear from readers.

Movie Review: Tell Me I Love You – Now available on VOD and DVD

The world is a crazy place right now. There is nothing but horrible news on the television, which is why my husband and I try to watch as little news as possible. We want to be informed, but we don’t want to be upset, scared and stressed out either.

It’s times like this that make me appreciate comedies. We have gone back to a lot of “old school” comedies (mostly from the 80’s) because we know they will make us laugh. Movies such as Airplane, Caddyshack and National Lampoon’s Vacation. 

We are always on the look out for new comedies too.

There is a new romantic comedy that was just released on VOD and DVD on June 2, 2020. The film is called Tell Me I Love You. 

Tell Me I Love You stars Kaniehtiio Horn (Death Wish), Paulina Cerrilla, and Sam Clark (Grease Live!), Renee Morrison (Divergent), Jamie Luner (Melrose Place), Al Sapienza (Jack Ryan) and former O-Town band member Ashley Angel Parker (Hairspray) rounding out the cast.

Melanie “Mel” (Horn), Ben (Clark) and Ally (Cerrilla) are best friends. Ally met Mel and Ben while in college studying music.

Now that they have graduated college, the trio rent a home in Malibu where they work and continue to make music together. Their dream is to one day make an album, but that requires a lot of cash, something they don’t have.

Ally’s family are anxious for her to marry her high school boyfriend. Ally is not ready for marriage, let alone marry her ex whom she has no feelings for.

Mel’s family want her to get married too. Mel is a lesbian, so they are OK with her marrying a female, but they would prefer her to marry a man.

Unbeknownst to Mel, there is a family trust that will give her $450,000 is she were to get married. That would be more than enough to finish their album.

With all that is going on (Mel needing to be married to get the cash, Ally being pressured to marry her ex boyfriend), the trio come up with a crazy scheme. Both Ally and Mel will pretend to marry Ben. Hopefully their families don’t find out. This way, Mel gets the money they need to make the album, and Ally’s family gets off her back about getting married.

Needless to say their plan is not flawless, especially because Mel has found love with a neighbor named Cassie, and Ally is feeling a bit jealous over Mel and Ben’s relationship, bring up the fact that she has legitimate feelings for Ben that go beyond just best friends.

How will this all play out? Will Mel get the money? Will they make the album? Or will things spiral out of control? To find out you need to purchase, rent or stream Tell Me I Love You. Look for it where ever movies are sold/rented/streamed.

Overall I thought it was an enjoyable movie. I wouldn’t say it was a blockbuster film that you could have seen in theaters, but it’s certainly better than a lot of Lifetime movies.

The acting was decent. I was actually really surprised to see Jamie Luner in this film. I remember watching her in the series Just the Ten of Us. Does anyone remember that show (I’m showing my age)?

I wouldn’t necessarily say the film was “predictable.” Some parts were, but I was thrown off by a few things in the story that I didn’t see coming.

I like the originality of the story line. I mean, it’s not like people have pretended to be married in films before (it has been done) but three best friends pretending to be married to each other is a bit different. Tossing in the same sex relationship adds another facet to this story line.

There are some songs sung in this film. They are not necessarily my “cup of tea,” but they weren’t that bad.

I don’t know what this film is rated. I would say PG-13.

I received a free online screener link to view the film. I do not know if there are any bonus features on the DVD.

Below is the film’s trailer for your enjoyment.
