When is The Hunger Games Movie Being Released?

Stumbled across a magnificent counter for The Hunger Games...and shared it with you for it was not much longer before The Hunger Games movie was to be released. HOWEVER, the counter quickly became annoying so I have removed it and apologize for leading you hear expecting to find a Hunger Games countdown calendar on fire.

Personally, I am just finishing up the third book (I know, I'm a bit behind).

Are you looking forward with anticipation to The Hunger Games movie? Have you read the books?

The Muppets Acadamy Award Oscar Nomination

The Muppets 2011 movie received an Oscar nomination in Music for Best Original Song. As writer Bret McKenzie said, the song 'Man or Muppet' is a great song that works extremely well within the context of the movie. He wanted to create a powerful ballad with this song and he did.

You can see for yourself in the official music video for 'Man or Muppet', which features Jason Segal and the newest Muppet, Walter:

It's a song that is beautiful, memorable and dramatic and yes, at least it is to me an 'earworm' or a song that will get stuck in your head, especially if you relate to these characters. It makes me really want to sing out the song aloud - and I am no singer.

I'll be watching The Academy Awards on February 26, 2012, to see if The Muppets (or rather Bret McKenzie) wins the Oscar for Best Original Song and to see if they make an appearance. In past years, it was normal for the nominated songs to be presented on stage but I read today that neither of the two nominated songs will be performed.  However, we can still hope that The Muppets will make an appearance of one sort or another...

See you

The Muppets Movie On Blu-ray and DVD

Last year, 2011, saw the Muppets come out of retirement with their comeback movie The Muppets. Disney did an amazing job of rejuvenating the Muppet franchise. If you saw the movie, you know what I'm talking about.

If you didn't see The Muppets movie, don't take my word for it that this was an excellent movie:

Consider the National Post critic Chris Knight who closed his review by comparing the return of the Muppets to a reunion with an old friend, "who has only gotten better with age."

Consider the words of movie critic legend Roger Ebert who said, "The Muppets is a funny, wickedly self-aware musical."

Finally, consider that The Movie Mom graded the movie with a solid A and deemed it appropriate for all ages.

If there is a single solitary Muppet fan who has not seen the new Muppets movie, they will definitely want to check it out on blu-ray or DVD.

Even fans that saw and loved The Muppets movie, like myself, will want to own their very own copy.

I am thrilled that one of the blu-ray versions is bundled together with a copy of the soundtrack because The Muppets movie soundtrack really is excellent, too.

And we don't have much longer to wait. The Muppets 2011 movie is being released on blu-ray disc and DVD on March 20, 2012 and you can order yours now on sale from Amazon by clicking right here.

Hallmark's Chasing Leprechauns (2012) Movie

If you love Hallmark movies and you particularly enjoy movies that are tied to holidays, you can look forward to watching Chasing Leprechauns, Hallmark's new 2012 movie, which is set in Ireland and is being released in time for St. Patrick's Day celebrations.

In Chasing Leprechauns, a New York business executive who works too hard needs a vacation but instead of giving him a respite from work his boss sends him to Ireland to close an important business deal.

The deal involves a smelting plant construction site that the locals believe is home to leprechauns. In an effort to close the deal, he tries to get the local bar owner and leprechaun expert who must sign the business permit on his side. Of course, this leads to love…

Hallmark's Chasing Leprechauns stars Adrien Pasdar and Amy Huberman and is set to premiere on the Hallmark Channel on March 17, 2012. Unforunately, this means that those of us without the Hallmark Channel will miss out on this movie unless it is released on DVD.

Buy The Official Michael Jackson Opus

The Official Michael Jackson Opus
Despite being a Michael Jackson fan since the beginning of time or at least since the release of Thriller, would you believe that I just discovered The Official Michael Jackson Opus?

The Opus is a celebration of Michael Jackson's life and a magnificent, large leather bound collectors item.

The Official Michael Jackson Opus is SOLD OUT.  However, you can still buy it from sellers on Amazon by clicking right here. Because it is sold out, you will probably pay a premium for it but I know that will not stop true Michael Jackson fans who will be thrilled with this tribute to the king of pop.

Here's a peek into the book via the official Youtube video courtesy of Opus Media:

Michael Jackson was consulted on this project and is said to have been very enthusiastic about it. Unfortunately, because of his untimely death, he did not get to see the end result, which would have included images and information from the cancelled London concert.

Personally, I would love to read The Official Michael Jackson Opus.  How about you? Are you curious? Or maybe you have already seen the Opus?
