Disney's Limited Edition Frozen Dress

If you are interested in the movies at all, you are likely aware of the Disney movie Frozen. What you might not be aware of is just how successful Disney's Frozen has been or that it has caused a movie merchandise frenzy.

I enjoyed this video from Bloomberg.com, which takes a brief look at the furore surrounding the movie. I think Bloomberg's summation that Disney may have known they had a hit on their hands but they might not have anticipated just how big a hit it was going to be...or that it was going to cause such a merchandise frenzy. I found it interesting to learn that Disney licenses the rights to much of its merchandise, which takes some of the risk away from their profit line if they produce a film that is less than successful.

Take a look for yourself:

Disney Planes Fire & Rescue Trailer

Who knew there was a new Disney Planes movie? Not me at least not until today when I received an email in my inbox about a new Disney Planes movie called Disney Planes Fire and Rescue.

Having only recently watched Disney Planes that movie franchise is fresh in my mind. Since we do not have any children to take to the movie theatre to watch animated movies and because there is almost always a list of movies we would like to see at the theatre, we chose to wait and watch Planes on blu-ray disc.

We enjoyed the movie so when I read about the new one this morning I was curious about what Disney has in store for us and I found out by taking a peek at the new official movie trailer:

 

So, what did you think? I enjoyed the trailer.  I think that Disney Planes Fire & Rescue looks like an exciting, action packed movie and I quite enjoyed the humorous moments and even the music. I will look forward to more funny moments and hopefully more great songs in the movie itself.

Particularly interestingly to us is the fact that this movie has a HELICOPTER in it and, as a former Sea King helicopter navigator, my husband will probably place this animated Disney movie slightly higher on his To See List because of that fact.  How about you? Will Fire and Rescue make your list?

Disney Planes Fire & Rescue arrives in movie theatres on July 18, 2014.

See you
at the movies!

Lego Movie Bloopers


The tagline or title for this Lego Movie Blooper video ought to be "Everything is Funny" because it is. For some reason I especially enjoy Batman's humour...even though I missed one of the important Batman jokes in the movie.

How about you? Did you laugh out loud at these bloopers the way I did? Or do you fail to see the humour in a bunch of little plastic Lego pieces starring in a movie? Be sure to let us know!

Everything is Awesome!

The Lego Movie Blu-ray & DVD Everything is Awesome Special Edition


The Lego community online saw it coming. Did you? The Lego Movie, release date still to be determined, is going to be available in several different formats including the one shown here called the Everything is Awesome Edition, which includes not just the movie itself on Blu-ray, DVD and UltraViolet Digital HD, a 3D Emmet photo, a bonus 3D movie and, most significantly in the Lego world, a collectible VITRUVIUS MINIFIGURE.  It only makes sense for the Lego Company to include a minifigure with the movie release.

As I write this, Amazon has the Everything is Awesome Special Edition set priced at 30 percent off the recommended retail price and, as always, if you order the set before it is released, they offer their pre-order price guarantee. If the price goes down between now and the release date, you will pay the lowest price. You can read more about the set or order your copy from Amazon by clicking right here.

Everything is Awesome!

Hunger Games Lego Minifigure of Peeta


To date Lego has not produced any Hunger Games themed building sets and this far into the three book or four movie franchise, it seems unlikely that they will.

Given that I have some knowledge of the Lego world it was with only a little bit of surprise that I discovered a few interesting pieces of Hunger Games themed Lego online.

These figures are custom built by private Lego sellers and perfect if you really just want a Lego themed minifigure or memento of the Hunger Games.

I think this minifig of Peeta, the baker's boy, is a particularly good rendition of the Hunger Games character. Don't you?

You can find all of the Hunger Game themed Lego on Amazon by clicking here, or you can check on eBay by clicking here.

See you
at the movies!

Star Trek Electronic Door Chime

The Star Trek Electronic Door Chime is a novelty item that is good for a chuckle and a bit of fun, particularly for a BIG Star Trek fan.

I stumbled across it by accident and I'm thankful for this video from Think Geek, which gives a good demonstration of how you can put this Trekkie gift idea to good use:
 

I then visited Amazon.com, to see what the Amazon customer reviews had to say about this gadget since I find Amazon customer reviews a very good source of consumer reviews for almost any product. I was pleasantly surprised with the generally positive reviews of this Star Trek communication panel.

Writer Rob says, "if you are all things Trek, go for it." Of course, that holds true if someone you know is all things Star Trek.

On the downside, a few buyers found the price a bit steep for a novelty item, though I don't think it is too bad and one said the batteries don't last as long as he would like though that same reviewer also made me laugh out loud when he said that it embarrasses his daughter every time it goes off.  That's priceless!

You can read the reviews for yourself on Amazon by clicking here or read more about it on Amazon by clicking here.

What do you think? Is there a Star Trek communication panel in your future?

See you
at the movies!

Could Lady Rosamund be Lady Edith's Mother?


Are you still thinking about Downton Abbey even though Season 4 is over? Many of us are! We're unsatisfied with the end of this season and we know the wait is going to be endless for Season 5.

I just read a blog post from Julia's Bookbag.  Julia is clearly as caught up in Downton as the rest of us are. As a matter of fact, to prolong the fun, Julia took a trip...to a local British food shop where picked up a wonderful variety of British foods.  Doesn't that sound like fun? I just might have to do that myself.

On her post, Julia refers to another discussion about the possibility of Lady Rosamund being Lady Edith's mother, which I will admit I had NOT thought of but which definitely would explain a lot, including the differences between Lady Mary, Lady Sybil and Lady Edith who I always thought were totally different for sisters.

What do you think? Do you think Lady Cora is really Lady Edith's mother or might there be a family secret here?

See you
at the movies!
