Fun Movies for Kids

October 19th 2014 16:17
The holidays are coming up, and itís time to think about DVDs for the little ones. You want them busy and entertained with great lessons from movies that are wholesome. Here are three that I think will fill that void.

The Little Penguin Racing Adventure

Kids loved Pororo since they first discovered him in Korea. Pororo is everything to them, and if the story has Pororo they want it and now. The Little Penguin Racing Adventure is very entertaining for kids and excellent for it causes lots of giggles and laughter while the kids watch. Parents will want to watch this movie with their kids because it is just plain fun.

The story is about Pororo, of course, and he is a curious little penguin. He dreams of becoming the greatest Super Sled champion. Accidentally, Pororo causes an airplane being piloted by turtles Toto, Rob Schneider is the voice, and Mango, Jon Heder, Napoleon Dynamite, to make an emergency landing in Porong Village. His life takes an interesting new turn. Pororo and his friends managed to hit a plane ride to the ice metropolis of North Korea with hopes of racing in the Super Sled Championships. But to win, they must compete against the current champions led by the White Tiger, the scheming bears led by Fufu, and are numerous other teams. Along the way Pororo will not only inspire cynical duck sportscasters Chip and Waltery, but all of the animals of the Northpia!

The Legend of the Saw Tooth Cave

The series continues with the Alphas and Omegas sharing an adventure filled with plenty of suspense, humor and down to earth moments that warm your heart. The movie is great for kids and totally worth your time to watch with kids or grandkids.

The animation could be better, but that is caused by budget issues in production, but the story makes up for it, all in all. I highly recommend the movie. Runt - Kate and Humphrey's Omega wolf cub - sneaks off to explore the haunted Saw Tooth Cave. When Runt finds a wolf that's been driven from her pack for being different, he musters all his courage to help her - and learns the joys of lending a paw to a friend in need.
What a great lesson for kids!

Care Bears: Belly Badge Rock

My daughter, when she was a toddler, loved watching the Care Bears. They bring on the "Belly Badge Rock"! as their next installment for other toddlers today. It's all music and cheer until Harmony Bear loses her singing voice before the big show, and Kaylee, a visitor to Care-a-lot, stops playing her instrument because of a bully. Perhaps a bit of Care Bears courage will save the day? Then, when Funshine Bear and Grumpy Bear realize they have a wild child on the loose, and Wonderheart Bear tells a few little lies, the bears discover how important it is to have good manners and always tell the truth.

My daughter is in her teens now, and there is no way sheíll watch the Care Bears, but she still chuckles and talks about how crazy she was about them.

Perry Mason Movies

October 14th 2014 13:27
I introduced another Perry Mason movie collection some time ago and spoke highly of the DVD set. Below are three move movie collections each as their own DVD. I hope you get a chance to watch a Perry Mason movie, and enjoy the fine casting and storylines.

The Case of the Lady in the Lake/The Case of the Lethal Lesson

The Case of the Lady in the Lake is a great story. When a tennis player is arrested for the murder of his wife, Perry Mason suspects foul play and takes on the case to ensure justice is served. Seen with a past lover the night before the murder, the accusedís motive seems clear when the police find him in possession of the victimís bloody scarf. Itís mysterious to think when a tennis player is taking off the court and into the courtroom, Della and Paul assist Perry as a manís innocence hangs in the balance. Talented cast is fun to watch with David Hudson Falls, John Beck, Dorian Clark and Doug Oglen co-starring.

The Case of the Lethal Lesson is a fun one to watch and realize the amount of talent on the screen. When one of Perryís law students is discovered at the scene of a gruesome killing, Mason is reluctant to take the case, particularly because the victim is his friendís son. As it quickly becomes clear that Ken Malansky had a motive to kill, Perry must work through a tangled web of ex-lovers and jealous classmates to discover if his client is being framed or if he is, in fact, guilty of murder revenge.

The Case of the Scandalous Scoundrel /The Case of the Avenging Ace

When a reviled tabloid publisher is found dead in his pool, the female reporter he recently hired is a prime suspect. Perry and Della Street try to get to the bottom of the case. Paul Drake gathers clues to prove his friends innocence. While they get close to help prove his friendís innocence, they dig deeper into the case. They discover a world of blackmail, scandal, and the deceit uncovers many suspects with a possible motive to kill. Finding the killer is not as simple as Perry thought.

The next movie on this disk is called The Case of the Avenging Ace. Itís about a high-ranking Air Force officer convicted of homicide when a woman working with the military ends up dead. The Colonel attempts to appeal his conviction, but the lone defense witness is murdered. Perry begins to question the Colonel's guilt when it becomes clear someone is working to thwart their appeal process. Paul Drake, Jr. and Della Street assist Perry to uncover the truth and clear the Colonel's name. Patty Duke also stars in this movie.

The Case of the Musical Murder /The Case of the All-Star Assassin

It's the final curtain call for a cruel theatre director who is found dead, and a prime suspect is the recently fired stage manager. Perry Mason, played all too well by Raymond Burr, is the only alibi for the suspect, and the prosecution is hard at work to discredit him. Perry may know the manager is innocent, but now he must prove it - which won't be easy when everyone seems to have wanted the victim dead. Debbie Reynolds stars in this wonderfully paced story.

The other movie is The Case of the All-Star Assassin. When the owner of a sports team is murdered, Perry decides to assist former student Ken Malansky, played by William R. Moses on one of his first cases. The case becomes complicated, and there are many who had interest in taking him out of the game. Barbara Hale co-stars with Raymond Burr, and they are incredible together.

Audrey Hepburn Collection

audrey hepburn collection,sabrina,

Anyone who knows me knows I have said countless times that Audrey Hepburn should have made more movies. When an actress has a persona like Audrey, people take notice, and a star is born overnight. Her first America movie with Gregory Peck, directed by William Wyler, was clearly her break out role. She was a star, celebrity overnight. One could easily notice she was destined to be a movie star. Though Roman Holiday is one of my favorite Hepburn movies, it is not one of the three movies in Audrey Hepburn Collection.

The Audrey Hepburn Collection on Blu-ray proves her talent in the most glorious way. Sure, you have to love Audrey to sit through this collection, but who doesnít love Audrey Hepburn. Classic love stories of a by-gone era grace this collection. Here we have three popular movies illustrating the gift of Hepburnís talent. Now is your chance to get to know Audrey all over again or for the first time.

funny face,sabrina,breakfast at Tiffany's

Sabrina , directed by Billy Wilder, also starring Humphrey Bogart and William Holden, Audrey plays the chaferís daughter, as a young girl sent to a French cooking school and comes back all grown up to catch the eyes of two very rich brothers. The story spins a tale that leaves you wanting more.

Breakfast at Tiffanyís, based on Truman Capoteís book of the same name and directed by Blake Edwards, follows a young woman, Holly Golightly, with a jaded past who comes to terms with life by the help of her neighbor played by George Peppard. The ending of this movie is over-the-top romantic and a must see movie. But, the really awesome scene is when Audrey, as Holly, sings Henry Manciniís Moon River while playing a ukulele. I have to mention Mickey Rooney plays a cameo role as a delightful, grumpy Asian.

Funny Face is Audrey third and last movie in this set. She stars with Fred Astaire. Directed by Stanley Donen, who also co-directed Singing in the Rain, the movie contains plenty of songs by George and Ira Gershwin. Astaire is a photographer who falls in love with Audrey in Paris. Itís a cute story and fun to watch.

All in all, this is a must-own collection. These three movies contain so much talent in front of the camera as well as behind the camera that there is just no question. You need to own it.

I usually donít go to movie theaters to see a Tyler Perryís movie. I thought The Single Momís Club was going to be totally silly. Boy was I ever wrong. Perry delves into some common issues for single mothers. Most of those issues were challenging. The stress and hardships single mothers deal with from within and from without. Parenting is challenging enough without being single
