Little Women - TWO $25 Fandango Gift Codes (For 4 family members) to see it! #Giveaway (U.S.) Ends 9/25 #LittleWomenL3

Coming to a Theater near you on September 28th!!!

Sisters—and dreams—are unique in their ability to inspire, encourage and change the world. For 150 years, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women has motivated women of all ages to dream together and celebrate family. Coming to theaters for the first time, a modern retelling of LITTLE WOMEN brings a new generation together with their mothers, sisters and friends.

From girls playing in the attic to women living with purpose, the March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy—are committed to always supporting each other. Yet, growing up sometimes means growing apart. An aspiring writer, Jo leaves for New York determined to publish a novel. In the wake of rejected draft upon draft, her editor challenges Jo to write about something more interesting—her family. When tragedy brings the sisters back home, sticking together takes on new meaning. As Jo comforts her sick sister, Beth asks for one thing: a story. Jo knows the perfect one … by heart.

Check out the Movie Trailer Below! This looks really good! I can't wait to see it!!!

The music score is by Marc Shaiman and the film features all new original songs with music by Shaiman and lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman. The film also stars Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and introducing Joel Dawson as the Banks’ children, with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes, Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.

Scooby-Doo! And the Gourmet Ghost DVD Review & Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 9/30 #ScoobyDoo

Disclosure: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own. No other compensation was exchanged or received.




Release Features Bonus Scooby-Doo! Episodes

Everyone’s favorite Great Dane is back for an all-new, action-packed, culinary mystery adventure with the release of Scooby-Doo! And the Gourmet Ghost, available in stores September 11, 2018 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Featuring the voice talents of internationally acclaimed celebrity chefs, Bobby Flay (Beat Bobby Flay), Giada De Laurentiis (Giada in Italy) and Marcus Samuelsson (Chopped), Scooby-Doo! And the Gourmet Ghost takes our favorite teen sleuths on an unforgettable adventure to New England, where they investigate the haunting of a historic colonial inn that’s been turned into a state-of-the-art, culinary resort. Scooby-Doo! And the Gourmet Ghost will retail for $19.98 SRP. Scooby-Doo! And the Gourmet Ghost is also available to own on Digital via purchase from digital dealers. 

On Scooby-Doo! And the Gourmet Ghost, the Mystery Inc. gang visits Rocky Harbor Culinary Resort, a new cooking retreat located in New Port Cove, Rhode Island. It’s a food lover’s destination, where visitors can learn to prepare meals like master chefs. As Scooby-Doo and his pals arrive to the resort, they are met by Fred’s uncle Bobby, who happens to be the world-famous chef and restauranteur Bobby Flay. 

Rocky Harbor Culinary Resort, which was originally known as Rocky Harbor Inn, has stood empty for over two centuries, ever since its original owner mysteriously disappeared from its premises. The property, which is now owned by Bobby, is rumored to be haunted by the infamous Red Ghost.  Bobby however, thinks the legend of the Red Ghost is just an old myth that’s part of the local lore. He hesitates bringing up the subject for fear it might scare off potential visitors to this new resort, which he dreams will become a world-famous gourmet cooking destination.   

To promote the grand opening of the resort, Bobby organizes a live, national telecast to broadcast from the retreat’s high-tech kitchen. It’s a star-studded evening with some of television’s biggest celebrity chefs, including renowned chefs Giada De Laurentiis and Marcus Samuelsson.

The telecast kicks off with a bang! Bobby’s kitchen buzzes with celebrity chefs whipping up their most scrumptious dishes. That’s until the lights mysteriously flicker off and out of the shadows, Red Ghost appears frightening all the guests, who run out in a panic. Is the legend of Red Ghost real after all? Does this mean the end of Rocky Harbor Culinary Resort or will Scooby-Doo and his pals help save the day? It’s a delicious mystery Scooby-Doo! fans won’t want to miss!

Scooby-Doo! And the Gourmet Ghost features the familiar voice talents of Frank Welker as Scooby-Doo/Fred Jones, Grey Griffin as Daphne Blake, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy Rogers and Kate Micucci as Velma Dinkley. The film was executive produced by Sam Register, written by Tim Sheridan and directed by Doug Murphy.

Bonus Episodes:
• What's New, Scooby-Doo? "Recipe for Disaster" -- Shaggy wins a tour of the Scooby Snacks factory, where a sludge monster is on the loose.

• A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, "Wanted: Cheddar Alive" -- A "cheese monster" frightens away all the workers at the Scooby Snack factory, so no more Scooby Snacks can be made. But without a Scooby Snack, Scooby won't pursue the monster. The kids convince Scooby to help unmask the bad guy and reopen the factory.

• Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, "The Devouring" -- Dr. Rick Spartan returns to Crystal Cove to stop a gluttonous monster who is devouring people whole.

Here is a clip from the movie:

My Review:
This movie is a lot more entertaining and funnier than other Scooby Doo movies! Both my nine and six year old daughters sat through the whole thing. This is great for children to help teach them about chefs and cooking shows. Also, if your children like cooking shows, and of course, Scooby Doo, they will love this movie, and so will you!

They also mentioned The American Revolution, which my fourth grade daughter is discussing in her class room in social studies currently. It was neat to see how secret messages could have been written to hide them from others on plain paper!
