The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water Review

Disclosure: I received a copy of the movie to review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own and are my honest opinion of the movie. 

On a mission to save his world, SpongeBob SquarePants is headed to ours. When pirate Burger Beard (Antonio Banderas) steals the secret recipe for the beloved Krabby Patties, SpongeBob and friends come ashore to bring back the missing formula. To succeed, they must team up with former rival, Plankton, but soon realize that to defeat a super-villain, they must unleash their inner superheroes. 

Our thoughts: My two oldest boys are big fans of SpongeBob so they went to see The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water when it came out in theaters.  Since they loved the movie, they were thrilled when they found out that we were going to review the movie on Blu-ray and DVD.

Although they wanted to watch it the day it arrived in the mail, we waited until the weekend to watch it as a family. Not only did the movie capture their interest because they are fans of SpongeBob, but they loved the idea of the characters becoming superheroes. My oldest son's favorite character in the movie is Mr. Krabs, whose superhero character is a robot. My middle son's favorite character was Plankton whose superhero character is strong with huge muscles. I have to admit Plankton was probably my favorite too. I liked the idea that he decided to work with the team of SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, and Mr. Krabs instead of against them. He even has a chance to keep the Krabby Patty Secret Formula but gives it back instead of being selfish.  Of course, when he returns to Bikini Botton, he goes back to being his old self. As far as my boys are concerned, the movie was awesome!

Teen Titans Go!: Appetite For Disruption Season 2 Part 1 DVD Review

Disclosure: I received a copy of the DVD to review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own and are my honest opinion of the DVD. 

Teen Titans fans can relive the latest adventures when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) releases Teen Titans Go!: Appetite for Disruption Season 2 Part 1 on DVD April 14, 2015. The two-disc DVD set is priced to own for $19.97 SRP and features over 4 hours of content on 2 DVD discs! Teen Titans Go!, which consistently ranked as the #1 show for kids 6-11 on Cartoon Network has been renewed for a third season of fun and mayhem.

In Season 2 Part 1, the Teen Titans return with a whole new bevy of baddies, beverages and adventures! Partner up with Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Starfire and Beast Boy to defend Jump City against slimy monsters, tyrannical villains and of course, crime fighting induced hunger pains. Every vote counts when the Teen Titans hold team leader elections, Beast Boy dials up the "man-factor" with his new robotic limbs, while Raven races to save the cotton candy bushes from the Gumdrop Goblin. It's a titan red alert with 26 gut-punching, gut-busting adventures in this all-new collection.

Our thoughts: My boys absolutely love the show Teen Titans Go! I think the last time I checked, they had around 55 episodes saved on our DVR. So when I was asked to review the Teen Titans Go! Appetite For Disruption Season 2 Part 1 DVD, I knew that my kids would be excited. Although my kids love the show, this is really the first time that I sat down and watched some episodes with them. 

This cartoon focuses on five main characters. Robin is the leader of the Teen Titans. Starfire is an alien princess who is learning how to fit in on Earth. Cyborg is half human and half robot. Raven is a half demon, and Beast Boy can transform into any animal. My oldest son's favorite characters are Robin and Raven. He likes Robin because he is the leader of the group, and he likes Raven because she has magic. My other son's favorite character is Cyborg because he is a robot machine.

The two-disc DVD set contains 26 eleven minute episodes. One of my oldest son's favorite episode was called "Caramel Apples." In this episode Raven's demon father, Trigon, has arrived to destroy Jump City and the world because Raven did not get him a Father's Day present. When Raven tells Starfire why her father is upset, Starfire makes Trigon a picture which makes him happy. He stops trying to destroy the Earth and starts spending time with Starfire. This upsets Raven and she starts fighting with Starfire, which she soon discovers her father wanted her to do all along. The girls apologize to each other and send Trigon away.

This cartoon definitely entertains my boys, and now that they own a DVD with 26 episodes I can finally delete some of the shows on our DVR! If you have a Teen Titan Go! fan in your house, I would definitely recommend this DVD.

Shutterfly iPhone 6 Case Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a code to giveaway in exchange for a post.  However, all opinions are my own and are my honest opinion of Shutterfly.

I love taking pictures of my family and since I upgraded to an iPhone last summer I feel like I always have a camera available to me. Since I take a lot of pictures, it is important to me to make sure I always back them up. Although I do back them up on my hard drive, I also upload them to Shutterfly. 

At Shutterfly you can upload and store an unlimited amount of photos. You can also use their site to share your photos with family and friends and turn your photos into cards and gifts. I have personally made photo cards, photo books, mugs, mouse pads, ornaments, magnets, and calendars. Whenever I have given a gift to someone that I created through Shutterfly, I have always received compliments about that gift. However, if you are not happy with your product, Shutterfly offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee where they will replace it for free or offer a refund.

After upgrading to an iPhone, I made sure to download the Shutterfly app to my phone. By having the app, I can see all of the photos that I have ever uploaded to Shutterfly right on my phone, plus I can upload all of my iPhone pictures onto the Shutterfly website.

One item that I have yet to try out at Shutterfly are the iPhone cases. As you browse through their selection, you can refine your search based on the type of iPhone you have, case type, case finish, color, and the number of photos you wish to have on your case. As I looked at their selection, my favorite was called Love Makes Family. 

Besides offering great products, I love that they offer discounts and free products from time to time. Many times on the weekend I will be surprised with an email offering an item for free with the exception of shipping. I have received emails about free magnets, cards, and address labels, just to name a few. 

Since I love the quality of their products, I would definitely recommend Shutterfly! To give you a chance to try our their site, I am giving away a Shutterfly code for a free iPhone 6 case. Just enter below...

The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown Review

Disclosure: I received a copy of the movie to review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own and are my honest opinion of the movie. 

Get ready for some raw-kin’ action in this all-new, original movie that brings some of WWE’s toughest, wildest superstars to Bedrock! When Fred loses his family’s vacation money, he hatches one of his hair brained plans to get it back. It’s a sports entertainment spectacle that involves throwing his best bud, Barney into the wrestling ring with the likes of John Cenastone (John Cena), Marble Henry (Mark Henry) and even The Undertaker, with Fred himself as event promoter! The crowds roar, the “clams” are pouring in from ticket sales and even Mr. McMagma (Vince McMahon) is taking notice of all the hoopla. Can Fred keep serving up bigger and badder matches or is he in for the rocky ride of his life? Including all-star appearances from The Boulder Twins (Brie and Nikki Bella) and Daniel Bry-Rock (Daniel Bryan), it’s time to get the whole family together for a collection of hard-hitting, side-splitting laughs from the most epic event in all of prehistory!

Our thoughts: My two oldest boys and my husband are huge fans of WWE, so my boys were excited when we received a review copy of The Flintstones and WWE: Stone Age Smackdown! As soon as it arrived in the mail they wanted to watch it, and that's exactly what we did when dinner was over.

As we watched the movie together, I could tell that my boys were enjoying it. After the movie was over, my boys even watched parts of it over again. Their favorite characters of the movie were The Undertaker and John Cenastone. While the Undertaker has always been a favorite wrestler in our house, we saw a comedic side to him in this movie as he has a scene wearing pink shorts. Another scene that stood out was between John Cenastone and Daniel Bry-Rock where Daniel got to say his catch phrase "Yes! Yes! Yes!"

The Flinstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown was a hit with my boys and the only complaint was that they wished the movie was a little longer. Growing up I remember watching the Flintstones, so I enjoyed that I could share a part of my childhood with my boys. If you are a fan of the Flintstones and WWE, you might want to check out this movie. You can own it on Blu-ray Combo, DVD & Digital HD on March 10.

From the beginning to the end, the movie captured our interest. When I asked my boys what they thought of the movie they said "it was awesome and amazing!"
