Check out this cool surprise I received in honor of the fourth season of Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

 

If you and/or your family are fans of the Netflix series, She-ra and the Princesses of Power, you might be interested in knowing that the series is now playing it’s fourth season.

DreamWorks Animation recently announced that Jacob Tobia (Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story) has joined the cast of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power for the new season of the Emmy and GLAAD Media Award nominated series. Tobia voices Double Trouble, a non-binary shape-shifting mercenary from the Crimson Waste, who joins forces with Catra and the Horde.  Tobia is a gender nonconforming writer, producer, and performer, most recently publishing their bestselling debut memoir Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story.

Executive produced by Noelle Stevenson, the fourth season of Dreamworks She-Ra and the Princess of Power begins with the respective rises of Queen Glimmer as leader of the Rebellion and Catra as co-leader of the Horde. As the Horde makes advances on the Rebellion under the looming threat of Horde Prime’s arrival, the Princess Alliance makes heroic strides but begins to disagree on the best way to defend Etheria. Ultimately, a shocking discover about Etheria itself causes Adora to reconsider everything she thought she knew.

Here are a few clips from the new season of the series.

 

 

 

I received a really cool surprise package recently that contained a super cool She-Ra statue. It’s a really nice statue and well made (the base is really heavy).

I have a co-worker that is crazy about everything and anything that has to do with super hero type people. He has them all over his office. I can’t wait to show this to him. He’s going to freak out! I might even consider letting him have it. We’ll see…

Check out Kabillion – A Family Friendly Streaming Service for Quality Entertainment

 

Remember the days when you had to flick through every television channel just to find something to watch? It was made worse when you had to find something the entire family wanted to watch.

Growing up (back in the 70’s), my dad had full control over the television set. He watched what HE wanted to watch. My mom was more into reading books. My brother had his own television and my sister had a busy social life and spent most of her free time with the horse. That left me to watch whatever my dad was watching, which was primarily sports, news and Benny Hill (which is wildly inappropriate for a kid – even if I did find a lot of it funny).

Fast forward to today. Who needs to flick around the different television stations to find something to watch. Now there are plenty of streaming services that allow you to watch what you want to watch, when you want to watch it.

My husband streams a lot of shows and movies off a couple of different platforms. I personally enjoy watching regular television. I am a big fan of educational programs like What on Earth?, Ancient Aliens and Paranormal Caught on Camera.

I remember when my kids were little. We would cater to what they wanted to watch. We tried to steer them towards stuff we liked to watch too (when it was family time). When it was just them, they were allowed to pop in any VHS tape or DVD they wanted to watch.

I would never let them watch a streaming service when they were younger. There was no way of knowing what kind of content they could stumble across.

There is a streaming service that I wish was available when my kids were younger. It’s called Kabillion. Kabillion is a family friendly streaming platform, so you never have to worry about your kids coming across “questionable” or inappropriate content.

Do you want to hear something even better? Kabillion is completely FREE! That’s right – FREE!

Kabillion offers a wide range of popular animated content for kids of all ages! Shows like Thomas the Tank Engine and new addition, Bubu and the Little Owls, will delight preschoolers, while Barbie Dreamtopia and Transformers Prime are just some of the many offerings the school-age set will love! Kabillion even features plenty of cherished classics, like Bobby’s World and Gumby, so you can share some of your own favorites with your family – and discover new ones together, too!

With Kabillion, you and your family can take the show(s) on the road! It’s available as a free app on Roku, XUMO, Amazon Fire TV, and Apple TV, which makes it ideal for road trips and taking the kiddos on the go! It’s also available as a free VOD service with most major cable providers, making watching at home just as easy.

Seriously… where was Kabillion years ago? I would have LOVED to have had this service for when my kids were younger.

I checked out Kabillion for myself.

I love that they separate the shows so you can easily find content for your child (or grandchild’s) age range.

For the really little ones (0-6 years old), Kabillion has shows like Chloe’s Closet, Bubu, Thomas & Friends (my son loved Thomas!), My Little Pony, Bobby’s World (so cute!), and Geronimo Stilton, to name a few. My son was (and still is) a “reluctant reader.” He would actually read the Geronimo Stilton books. If Kabillion was available years ago, I think he would watch that show over and over again. He loved it that much.

My husband and I have been watching Gumby on Kabillion. We grew up with Gumby. The awesome thing is that Kabillion shows the CLASSIC Gumby show. It’s not a remake or updated version. It’s THE classic Gumby. We love it. We’ve watched all the episodes Kabillion has. Our kids think Gumby is really weird. LOL!

Getting ready to watch some shows on Kabillion.

Kabillion has shows for children up to twelve years old. I think after that age children could try other streaming services (with parental controls of course). I work with upper elementary aged children (9-12 year olds) and there are plenty of shows on Kabillion I know that they would love like the LEGO (Ninjago, Nexo Knights, Friends), Transformers and Pokeman. 

If your family is like ours, a weekly “family movie night” is a lot of fun. My kids would take turns picking out a movie and we’d make popcorn, hot cocoa or other goodies to enjoy while watching a movie. Kabillion doesn’t have movies, but they do have plenty of episodes of great family friendly program you can enjoy. Instead of a movie, why not watch a few episodes of your favorite show? There is nothing wrong with a little “binge watching” either.

If you are looking for a great alternative to today’s entertainment – something that is family friendly, check out Kabillion at Kabillion.com. The brand is also on social media. All of their links are found at the bottom of their website.

Kabillion is always adding new content, so be sure to follow them on social media to keep up to date with what’s new.

What do you think about Kabillion? Do you think it’s something your family would enjoy?

The Shield: Complete Series and More from Mill Creek Entertainment

 

Are you a “binge watcher?” Can you stop at just one episode of your favorite television series, or do you find the need to watch multiple episodes in one sitting (or complete an entire season in one day)?

I wouldn’t say that I’m a binge watcher, per say. Normally I’m OK watching one episode at a time, but shows like Stranger Things, I will watch the entire season in one or two days. If something is that good, you can’t wait a week to see what happens next.

That is both the good, and bad thing, about having an entire season or series readily available to you, whether it be streaming or on Blu-ray/DVD.

Currently I am watching the entire series of the television show, The Shield. It’s available from Mill Creek Entertainment.

The Shield: The Complete Series comes on 18 discs – EIGHTEEN! I own other complete series from television shows and none of them even come close to having THAT MANY discs. I’m impressed.

The boxed set even have a fake police badge built into the box.

Needless to say I won’t be able to binge watch the entire series in a day or two. At best I am able to watch only a few episodes at a time. There are over 70 hours of episodes in this complete set. Each episode is about an hour (probably 40+ minutes each because there are no commercials). I believe there are a total of 88 episodes.

In addition, the collectors edition, sold by Mill Creek Entertainment, also comes with 10+ hours of featurettes, bonus features, commentary and so much more. So in essence, there is probably over 100 hours of content pertaining to this fabulous drama series.

If you have never seen the series before, or you are not very familiar with it, The Shield is a crime/drama series that stars Michael Chiklis. The series also featured other actors including Glenn Close (female lead for a season), and guest stars like Forest Whitaker and Laurie Holden.

Detective Vic Mackey (Chiklis) leads a Strike Team in the L.A. Police Department to deal with violent and dangerous crimes (gang related, drug trafficking…). Their division is known as the Farmington District, otherwise known as “the Farm.”

Mackey and his team do their best to “follow the rules” and obey the laws, but there are times they use questionable tactics to get the job done. Sometimes they even commit crimes themselves, like helping themselves to things during busts.

Because they tend to do things their own way, the team have a high success rate, which others find very questionable. Some want to find out what is really going on with the Strike Team, whereas others want to use their successes to their advantage.

Not all of the acts committed by the Strike Force can be seen as THAT bad. For example, they let a serial rapist get mauled by a Police dog before calling the dog off. Clearly the rapist deserved what he got (if not more).

Even though Mackey is “tough as nails,” he is a loving and caring father towards his children. His children have no idea what he’s like on the job (totally opposite of the person they know).

I’ve lost track of what episode i’m on. But I have watched a lot of them (certainly no where near 88 of them!). So far I am really enjoying the series. It’s normally not my “cup of tea,” but once I got into it I really liked it and I found myself wanting to watch another episode as soon as I finished one.

If you are interested in learning more about The Shield: Complete Series, you can check it out on the Mill Creek Entertainment website.

Mill Creek Entertainment carries a variety of Blu-ray and DVDs including complete series, collections and more. They also have entertainment for the various genres – horror, westerns, romance, drama, comedy, classics, holiday and more.

Other complete series available at Mill Creek Entertainment include Community, The Rockford Files, Quantum Leap, Mad About You, Knight Rider, Highway to Heaven and That 70’s Show, to name a few.

My favorite things from Mill Creek Entertainment are their collections. You can find DVD and Blu-ray collections with 12 movies, 20 movies, double features and more. Seriously… how awesome is it having 20 movies of the same type of genre, all in one collection?

They even have one collection that features 100 – yes! ONE HUNDRED Cult Classic movies. The 100 movie collection is only $44.98 too!

Whether you are a fan of The Shield television series, binge watching, or movies… Mill Creek Entertainment has something for you.

HBO’s Sharp Objects available now on Blu-ray and DVD

*I received a free screener copy to review, as well as promotional products. There was no compensation. 

Christmas is next week. That means that many people will have an extended weekend. If you are finished with your holiday shopping and wrapping, and if there are no holiday parties to attend, what will you do with all that free time? Perhaps you’ll want to binge watch your favorite series, or dive into another series that you’ve been meaning to check out, but haven’t done so yet.

If you are interested in something to binge watch (or simply watch at your leisure), you should check out HBO’s Sharp Objects. 

Sharp Objects is based on the book by the same name, written by Gillian Flynn. Gillian Flynn is the same author who wrote Gone Girl, which was also made into a movie.

Sharp Objects stars Amy Adams, Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina, Eliza Scanlen, Elizabeth Perkins and Matt Craven.

I’m a fan of Amy Adams. I think she’s a good actress who is not always cast in the best of movies (she’s had a few “flops” along the way). I am also a fan of Patricia Clarkson after seeing her in Easy A. I have to admit that seeing her in Sharp Objects is polar opposite of her witty character in Easy A.

Adams & Clarkson

Amy Adams stars as Camille Preaker. She is a reporter working in St. Louis. She carries a lot of “baggage” including alcoholism, self harm and having to deal with the aftermath from a miserable childhood.

Camille’s editor assigns her to cover the murder of a teenage girl the previous summer, and the disappearance of another teenage girl. Could their be a connection between the two.

It just so happens that these events took place in the town where Camille grew up, Wind Gap, Missouri.

Camille is not too keen on the idea of returning to her home town. She does not have many happy memories from growing up there. She especially doesn’t want to see her mother, Adora Crellin (Clarkson), who still resides in Wind Gap, along with Camille’s younger sister Amma (Scanlen).

Life wasn’t always that bad growing up. Camille did enjoy skating around town on her roller skates, along with her other younger sister (who is no longer in the picture – I don’t want to give away all the series’ secrets).

Viewers get to see a lot of scenes involving roller skating. Even her youngest sister, Amma, uses roller skates to get around town.

I have to say that roller skating brings back fond memories for me. I went roller skating all the time with my cousins and my friends. Even though Camille’s childhood was back in the 90’s (and mine as the 80’s and late 70’s). I honestly didn’t think roller skating was a “thing” in the 90’s.

I used to skate for hours at a local roller skating rink. My friend and I would spend all day Saturday at the rink, roller skating, playing video games (while still wearing our skates), and noshing on French fries from the concession stand.

I find it interesting that Camille’s youngest sister, Amma, still uses roller skates. You’d think in this day and age she would be using roller blades or hitching rides with friends. I guess it’s because Wind Gap seems to work at a slower place. They are like their own little world.

Anyway… back to the story.

With each episode, viewers get a better understanding into the mind of Camille (and how messed up it is) through a series of flashbacks and present day. When I say “messed up” I really mean MESSED UP.

Camille’s mother, Adora, is “scary.” Not horror movie type of scary, but creepy, dark and “helter skelter,” kind of scary. Clarkson REALLY brings the character to life with her movements and facial expressions. Her character reminds me a lot like the mother and grandmother (combined) from the movie/book Flowers in the Attic. She does similar things too (I just won’t give it away what she does).

Camille is trying to help solve the murders, all while dealing with her own demons.

Will Camille find out who the killer is before he/she strikes again? Will she be able to come to terms with her own issues and find a way to move past them? To find out you need to pick up a copy of Sharp Objects. Look for it where ever Blu-rays/DVDs are sold.

I received a copy of the series to review, as well as the roller skates (featured above) and a bomber jacket, similar to the one worn on the show. How cool is that?

Sadly, the jacket is too small for me. I’m a plus size and the jacket i received is a medium. That’s OK because my daughter said she’ll take it (she’s a S/M size). It’s pictured below in this post.

I must say, the roller skates are a “blast from the past” and brought back a lot of fond memories from my youth. I felt like a kid again when I was lacing them up. Unfortunately, it’s been 30+ since I wore roller skates, so I’m still re-learning how to use them again. I nearly fell on my behind the first time I put them on. Thank goodness I was able to grab on to the couch.

I forgot just how heavy roller skates are. At first it felt like I attached weights to my feet, but once I got used to the feeling it was fine.

It’s going to take some time before I remember how to skate again. Plus I need to find somewhere that I can go roller skating (being winter doesn’t help). Our condo complex parking lot is a steep hill, so there is no way I’ll skate around the parking lot. I’ll go to one of the local parks when the weather is nicer.

Lacking up my new roller skates to practice skating again.

I’ve only watched three episodes thus far. I am looking forward to finishing up the series this weekend. So far, so good. I am really enjoying the series.

I haven’t read the book, but watching the series is like reading a good book. When you read a good book it’s hard to put it down. Watching Sharp Objects really keeps my attention and interest, so much so that I want to watch another episode as soon as I finish watching one. Due to my work schedule I have only been able to watch one episode at a time, which is why I’m looking forward to the weekend so that I can finish watching all of the episodes.

Cool, retro looking bomber jacket. I had something similar to this when I was a teen.

The episodes I’ve seen so far are not jam-packed with high octane action. This is a psychological thriller, not Fast and the Furious. The story line is building up towards something, which is why I can’t wait to see the next episode.

I’ll update this review post as soon as I had a chance to see the remaining episodes.

For more information about Sharp Objects, episode synopsis and more, visit the HBO website.

Holiday Entertainment and Movie Gifts from Mill Creek Entertainment

 

The holidays wouldn’t be the same without watching our favorite holiday movies. My family and I love the classics like Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life. We also enjoy the “new classics” like Jingle All the Way, Elf, A Christmas Story and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

There is nothing better during the holidays then being surrounded by your family, sipping hot cocoa, snuggling under fuzzy blankets by the Christmas tree, watching a holiday movie.

We own a lot of holiday films, but there is always room for more in our holiday collection.

Mill Creek Entertainment carries a lot of fun and heart-warming holiday films. They also carry a lot of bundled movies, meaning you get more than one film in a package.

I was sent to review some delightful movies. Some were holiday movies, others are great for year round viewing (and would make great gifts!).

Holiday TV Classics

I LOVE this collection of holiday television shows. There are 49 in total – enough to keep your family entertained for hours. Almost twenty one hours to be exact.

The episodes come from well known shows, like The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, Dragnet, Petticoat Junction, The Jack Benny Show and the Beverly Hillbillies. There are also some shows on there I have never heard of until now like Captain Gallant of the Foreign Legion, General Electric Theater and Racket Squad. That’s OK. I love seeing new shows.

These episodes are old. I love the retro-classic look and vibe of the episodes. I especially get a kick out of how people dressed and looked back then. Things were so much different than they are today. I really appreciate the classics. It reminds me of my youth. NOT that I’m old… I just remember watching stuff like this when I was younger.

If You Believe & A Different Kind of Christmas

This is a double feature DVD set.

If You Believe stars Hayden Panettiere. It’s a modern take on the classic Scrooge story. Susan is not really joyful during the holiday season. It seems like her life is not working out the way she had planned. Nothing seems to be going right for her, that is until she meets an adorable little girl named Suzie who makes her see what the holidays are really about.

In A Different Kind of Christmas. Shelley Long plays a single mom who is running for the position of mayor in the town where she lives. That might not be that easy once people realize that the new man in town that thinks he’s Santa Claus is her father.

Both of these movies were enjoyable and entertaining. They have a classic “Hallmark Channel” movie feel to them. If you enjoy those types of movies (the ones that air on the Hallmark Channel), then you’ll certainly enjoy both of these films.

All I Want for Christmas 

In this romantic movie, a young by named Jesse hopes to one day have a new dad. Ever since his father died, his mom, Sarah, has been keeping herself busy and hasn’t really found someone.

After winning a contest sponsored by a toy company, Jesse and his mom are put in the limelight. Sarah’s single status is made public and suddenly she finds herself with more than she can handle. She goes on many dates but they never seem to work out. She does find that she’s being pursued by the toy company’s wealthy owner, Roger, but Jesse and his buddy Ben, are against their relationship. Especially because Ben realizes that he has feelings for Sarah.

Who’ll win Sarah’s heart? Ben or Roger?

Mill Creek Entertainment carries a lot of movies and shows I didn’t even know existed. One such movie is a holiday movie staring the super star dog of the 70’s and 80’s, Benji.

I LOVED the Benji films! They were my favorite when I was younger. I’m such an big animal lover, so I enjoy animal related movies. Benji was so adorable. I wanted to own him.

I have seen the original Benji films, but I didn’t know that there was a holiday Benji movie. It’s called Benji’s Very Own Christmas Story.

Wow! I am so surprised that I never knew this film existed.

Check out the film’s trailer.

 

This is a cute movie. It’s a bit “cheesy,” but fun to watch none-the-less. I was a bit disappointed that Benji wasn’t really the center of attention in this movie (Santa was), but he’s still there and cute as ever.

I was very surprised at how short this was. It’s more like a television episode than a movie. I’m guessing maybe it only aired on television? I’m not sure. I’ll have to do some research.

If your child/children love cute dogs, and you are looking for a holiday family movie, Benji’s Very Own Christmas Story is a entertaining option.

Speaking of Benji, Mill Creek Entertainment carries a few different Benji movies, from the original (this will always be my favorite Benji movie) to a more “modern day” version of Benji  (there was one that was released in 2004).

Mill Creek Entertainment sent me a Benji movie collection featuring four Bengi movies. This collection includes the second film, For the Love of Benji which I love just as much as the original film (the original wins out as my most favorite).

So far my family has watched the original Benji. I have also watched the second movie (I was home alone that way). I’m glad that my kids got to experience something that brought me great joy as a child. They love Benji and both said we should look for a dog to adopt that looks like him. If only such a dog existed. I think he was one of a kind.

If you grew up watching this beloved canine, then you’ll certainly want to get your “paws” on this movie collection. It would also make a great gift for a Beni fan or someone who is into movies that bring back a bit of nostalgia.

If you are in the market for gifts of entertainment for people on your holiday shopping list, look no further than Mill Creek Entertainment. They have movies for every genre you can think of, from comedy to horror, and from westerns to musicals. They also have plenty of television series. I think their bundled movie (or television) collections are the best value. You can get HOURS of entertainment for around $20 (or less!).

Here are a few more examples.

The Wonder Years: Complete Series

My husband grew up watching The Wonder Years. He loved it as a kid. I honestly never watched it until we got married.

I have yet to watch this collection, only because I haven’t had the time. This will be great to watch on those cold and dreary winter weekends (or nights) when it’s too cold to go out of the house and do something.

I don’t find this on their website (yet). I guess it will be available soon.

Anyone who reads my blog on a regular basis knows that I LOVE horror movies. It’s my favorite movie genre. Even though moves of today’s horror movies are just silly, and they try and be more gross than scary, I am still on the look out for those little “gems” that pop up here and there.

Mill Creek Entertainment sent me the original Jaws. If you haven’t seen it yet, you are missing out.

Jaws is about a rouge Great White Shark that attacks the people on the picturesque island of Amity. Even when the chief of Police gets involved, this giant butcher from the sea will stop at nothing to stop anyone who tries to kill him.

This film made everyone who watched it re-evaluate going to the beach. LOL!

Shadow Stalkers is one of the many film collections available at Mill Creek Entertainment. This DVD collection features 10 movies. They range from the last 60’s to the late 80’s and feature actors like Faye Dunaway, Tommy Lee Jones and Karen Black.

  • Out of the Dark – 1988 
  • Happy Birthday to Me – 1981
  • Eyes of Laura Mars – 1978
  • Don’t Answer the Phone – 1980
  • Nightmare in Wax – 1969 
  • Bloody Pit of Horror – 1965 
  • Silent Night, Bloody Night – 1972
  • Funeral Home – 1980 
  • Don’t Open Till Christmas – 1984
  • Drive-In Massacre – 1974

As soon as I opened this DVD collection I had to watch Happy Birthday to Me, staring Melissa Sue Anderson (Little House on the Prairie). I have not seen the movie in DECADES. It’s about a group of students at an elite school who get murdered one by one. Are they random killings at the hands of a serial killer, or are these murders intentional? If they are, who is killing them and for what reason?

Eyes of Laura Mars is another great film. It’s about a fashion photographer (Faye Dunaway) that “sees” what a killer sees as he’s murdering her acquaintances, past lovers, and others around her. Then she “sees” that the killer is stalking her. It’s a weird movie, but really engrossing.

I’ve seen Silent Night, Bloody Night, but that was ages ago. The story is a bit “fuzzy” because I can’t remember much. Its the next movie in this collection that I plan on watching.

There are over 15+ hours of movies in this one collection. The whole collection sells for under $15. That is a great deal, especially for someone who loves horror/thriller movies.

The 12-Zombie Movie collection is an even better deal. It sells for only $9.98 and you get twelve films (16+ hours).

Here are the films in this collection.

  • Carnival of Souls – 1962
  • Dead Men Walk – 1943
  • Horror of the Zombies – 1974
  • House of the Living Dead – 1973
  • King of the Zombies – 1941
  • The Last Man on Earth – 1960
  • Mutant – 1984 
  • Night of the Living Dead – 1968
  • Oasis of the Zombies – 1981
  • The Snake People – 1968
  • Teenage Zombies – 1959
  • White Zombie – 1932 

Wow! Check out the dates of these films. Who knew that there were films about zombies back in the 1930’s. Vampires and Dracula I can see having films that old, but zombies?

I watched White Zombie because it stars Bela Lugosi. This is not a true zombie movie. I honestly don’t even know why the word “zombie” appears in the title. It’s an interesting film to watch, especially because of it’s age, but I wouldn’t use the term “zombie” for this film.

Night of the Living Dead is the original classic that really kickstarted the zombie genre. It’s the original film, not a remake. While I am partial to the film Dawn of the Dead (the original, not the remake) this one was still good.

I also watched Oasis of the Zombies. Wow… what a weird film. It has a bit of an “artsy” quality to it because of the unique angles in which things were shot. The story it’s self is weird, and the zombies are actually a bit creepy looking. It also features that crazy instrumental music that adds to the overall feel. It’s good, but it’s not something I would normally watch.

Mill Creek Entertainment sent me some other movies to review. I just haven’t had a chance to review them yet.

I received Designer Pups and The Astronaut Wives Club: The Complete Series. I’ll have to share my thoughts on these two titles in another post. I just wanted to include them here in case you were interested in them for yourself or for a gift.

As you can see, Mill Creek Entertainment has A LOT of entertainment options to choose from, for everyone on your holiday shopping list, from children to adults.
