News About My Twelve Year Old Son!

After MANY years of trying to get the teachers and others at my son's old elementary school to see that my son NEEDS special education help and services, they did nothing, until it was too late!

Since moving to California, the elementary school here saw what I've been seeing for years! That my twelve year old son has Asperger's Syndrome and he qualifies for special education help and services. He might even get his own aide for the rest of this school year! I'm really happy about this! I've been trying to get him special help forever! But no one in Tennessee would listen, not even my soon to be ex-husband. He still thinks that our son is normal, and just stubborn. But he's not normal. He's far from normal. He has to be handled and treated differently than our girls, and he knows it too! He sees things and makes comments about his problems and about what he can and can't do. My son knows he's different.

I am grateful for more opportunities for my son! I am grateful for the school staff finally seeing what I've been seeing and trying to get someone to agree with me about, for years!

"The Kitchen" Movie (Review) Available to Purchase on Blu-ray & DVD on November 5th! #TheKitchen

Disclosure: I received a copy of "The Kitchen" on Blu-ray/Digital from Warner Bros. in exchange for my post. The opinions below are mine and mine alone.


The Kitchen



Now Available on Digital

Blu-ray and DVD debut on November 5

They’re taking control of Hell’s Kitchen when “The Kitchen” arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. From New Line Cinema and BRON Creative come the gritty, female-driven mob drama “The Kitchen,” written and directed by Andrea Berloff, who was nominated for an Oscar for Original Screenplay for “Straight Outta Compton.” Based on the Vertigo comic book series from DC Entertainment, the film stars Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy (“Bridesmaids,” “Tammy”), Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip,” “Night School”) and Elisabeth Moss (TV’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” TV’s “Mad Men”) as three 1978 Hell’s Kitchen housewives whose mobster husbands are sent to prison by the FBI.

The film also stars Domhnall Gleeson (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “About Time”), James Badge Dale (“Only the Brave,” “13 Hours”), Brian d’Arcy James (“Spotlight,” “Shrek The Musical”), Margo Martindale (TV’s “The Americans,” “August: Osage County”), Oscar winner Common (“Selma,” “Marshall”),  Bill Camp (“Vice,” “Jason Bourne”), with an ensemble cast including Jeremy Bobb (“Marshall”), E.J. Bonilla (TV’s “The Long Road Home”), Wayne Duvall (“Prisoners”), Annabella Sciorra (TV’s “Daredevil”) and Myk Watford (TV’s “True Detective”).

Berloff’s screenplay was based on the comic book series created for DC Vertigo by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle. The film was produced by Michael De Luca and Marcus Viscidi. Serving as executive producers were Richard Brener, Michael Disco, Dave Neustadter, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Elishia Holmes and Adam Schlagman.

“The Kitchen” will be available on Blu-ray and DVD. The Blu-ray features a Blu-ray disc with the film and special features in hi-definition, and a Digital version of the movie. The DVD features a DVD with the film and a special feature in standard definition, and a Digital version of the movie.

“The Kitchen” will also be available on Movies Anywhere. Using the free Movies Anywhere app and website, consumers can access all their eligible movies by connecting their Movies Anywhere account with their participating digital retailer accounts.

Between 8th Ave. and the Hudson River, the Irish mafia runs 20 blocks of a tough New York City neighborhood known as Hell's Kitchen. But for mob wives Kathy (Melissa McCarthy), Ruby (Tiffany Haddish) and Claire (Elizabeth Moss), things are about to take a dramatic and radical turn. When the FBI sends their husbands to prison, the three women take business into their own hands by running the rackets and taking out the competition.


“The Kitchen” Blu-ray contains the following special features:

- Running Hell’s Kitchen

- Taking Over the Neighborhood

- Deleted Scene

“The Kitchen” DVD contains the following special feature:

- Running Hell’s Kitchen

My Review:
I wasn't sure about this movie in the beginning. I didn't read anything about it before seeing it and I'd only seen maybe one movie trailer for it. As we only stream TV shows and movies now. But as it got going and the women took over, it was awesome! I am HUGE fans of both Melissa McCarthy and Elisabeth Moss! I loved Elisabeth Moss in the Handmaid's Tale! All three women are amazing actresses and they were in "The Kitchen" also! This isn't a movie to be watched around children or teenagers. As they wouldn't understand the content. Any person who enjoys old fashioned mobster movies, will love "The Kitchen!" This would make a great Christmas Gift too!
