Go Back In Time Walking With Dinosaurs! #WalkingWithDinosaurs #Ad @JohnLeguizamo

*This post was written by me on behalf of 20th Century Fox.  All opinions are 100% mine.     Last weekend, my family and I had the distinct privilege of attending the Walking With Dinosaurs premiere in New York City.  My sons and nephews are big dinosaur fans and they were thrilled to have the opportunity to be transported back in time to a period when they walked the earth.  I'm not sure who enjoyed the film more, our kids or my husband and I.     The thing that makes this film so unique is the fact that, for the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. WALKING WITH DINOSAURS is the ultimate immersive, big screen adventure for families. Meet dinosaurs more real than you've ever seen as you take off on a thrilling prehistoric adventure, where Patchi, an underdog dinosaur, triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages.     One of the things that I really enjoyed about Walking With Dinosaurs, as an … [Read more...]

The Little Mermaid Enchants A Whole New Generation! #Giveaway

*This post was written by me on behalf of Allied Hispanic.  I received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review.  All opinions are 100% mine.     I'm sure I am not alone when I say that Disney's The Little Mermaid is probably one of my favorite animated films from when I was younger.  There is just something about overcoming adversity in order to land your prince charming that appeals to the romantic in every single one of us.  Add to that the fact that Disney opened it's vault especially to release this Diamond Anniversary Edition and I cannot even begin to describe to you how tickled I am!     Transformed for the first time on Blu-ray, we meet Ariel, an independent mermaid who marches to the beat of her own drummer and longs to become a real human.  Unfortunately, she becomes the prey of a cunning sea witch named Ursula who tricks her into striking a deal with the promise of helping her to become a real girl.  This leads Ariel to be catapulted into a new adventure … [Read more...]

Disney Pixar’s Brave Debuts November 13th on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack!

    We are huge Disney fans in our home and our boys eagerly await their animated movie debuts.  Recently, my older son has been hounding me about the release of Disney Pixar's Brave* this month.  It excited me that he would be so eager about watching an animated movie about a rebellious and strong female protagonist.  As a parent, I work very hard to impart equality between the genders to my children and I love that Disney has created a strong female character in this film.     The story is set in the magical Highlands of Scotland and follows the heroic journey of a strong-willed and adventurous female protagonist named Merida.  Due to frustrations with predisposed gender expectations, she is determined to forge her own path in live and to venture out on her own to find the true meaning of bravery.  She goes against the grain when it comes to cultural traditions and defies an age-old custom to prove that bravery comes from within and is not pre-determined by gender.     We had the … [Read more...]
