Aliens Ate My Homework DVD & Digital Movie

Posted on March 22, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

Aliens Ate My Homework was an interesting film, and both of my kids loved it.  Sarah, age 20, thought it was so cute, and Jacob, age 6, believed the entire film.  It’s really cute.  I loved it too.

The cast was great, and consisted of: Jayden Greig, Lauren McNamara, Kirsten Robek, Dan Payne, Alex Zahara, Ty Consiglio, Sean Quan, William Shatner, Tristan Risk.

Unexpected extraterrestrial guests team up with a pair of middle schoolers to prevent the destruction of the planet in Aliens Ate My Homework, coming to DVD, Digital and On Demand on March 6, 2018, from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. A humorous and suspenseful intergalactic adventure, Aliens Ate My Homework follows the whimsical members of the Galactic Patrol on the trail of an evil alien criminal hiding out on Earth.

Based on the first book in prolific author Bruce Coville’s globally renowned “Galactic Patrol” series published by Aladdin Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing, Aliens Ate My Homework features the voice of two-time Emmy Award winner William Shatner (“Star Trek”)  and comes from director Sean McNamara (The King’s Daughter). The film also stars Jayden Greig (The Shape of Water), Lauren McNamara (“Summer of Dreams”), Kirsten Robek (The Edge of Seventeen), Dan Payne (Star Trek Beyond, Watchmen), Ty Consiglio (Wonder) and Alex Zahara (“The Man in the High Castle”).

Aliens Ate My Homework is a suspenseful family comedy which follows the adventures of sixth-grader Rod Allbright (Greig) and the extraterrestrial lawmen known as the Galactic Patrol. When a tiny spaceship flies through his window and lands on his science project, Rod and his cousin Elspeth (McNamara) meet a group of friendly aliens, including Phil, a talking plant (voiced by William Shatner). The earthlings quickly join the aliens’ adventurous mission to help defeat an evil alien criminal. After discovering the evil alien is disguised as a human – someone he knows all too well – Rod and Elspeth race to save the world from total planetary disaster.

My Little Pony The Movie

Posted on December 22, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide kids Movies Reviews

I received the My Little Pony Movie last night.  And, though I have a 6 year old, boy, he sat down and watched it.  He loved it.  I can’t believe how cute it was.  Like the box says, “Discover a different breed of hero”.

This cartoon has an all star voice over.  Including:  Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Michael Pena, and more!

The story is truly cute.  They make new friends along the way, and have exciting challenges to complete.

Right now, it’s available on Digital, and on January 9, it’ll be available on Blu-ray/DVD.

When a dark force threatens Ponyville, the Mane 6 go on a journey beyond Equestria to save their beloved home and they meet new friends and exciting challenges along the way.


Directed by “My Little Pony” veteran Jayson Thiessen (“My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic”) and including original music and songs performed by Sia, Taye Diggs, Zoe Saldana, Kristin Chenoweth, and Emily Blunt, My Little Pony: The Movie is full of music, fun, and laughter for the whole family. The My Little Pony: The Movie Blu-ray and DVD include all-new special features, including a deleted scene, a music video, three featurettes starring the Mane 6, an exclusive Equestria Girls Short and a Hanazuki short, and will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.95 and $39.99, respectively.

The Glass Castle is a Fantastic Movie

Posted on November 26, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide clip Movies

We watched The Glass Castle the other day, and it was fantastic.  I really like Woody Harrelson, and adore Naomi Watts, so this was a no brainer, for me, to watch.  And Brie Larson played an exceptional role.  Even my 20 year old, daughter, got into watching it.  She said she will have to read the book next.  She always loves to compare the book to the movie.


An all-star cast shines in this inspiring film based on THE NEW YORK TIMES best-selling memoir. Jeannette (Oscar® winner Brie Larson) had a poor but wildly adventurous childhood, raised by her free-spirited father (Oscar® nominee Woody Harrelson) and her mother (Oscar® nominee Naomi Watts), an eccentric artist. But when her father’s behavior become erratic, Jeannette must find the courage to live on her own terms in this uplifting story of unconditional love.

The story line is super.  You will really enjoy this movie.  And, it’s a Real Life Drama.

* 9 Deleted Scenes
* The Glass Castle: Memoir to Movie
* A Conversation with Jeannette Walls
* Making of “Summer Storm” by Joel P West
* Scoring The Glass Castle
