Revisiting The Space Shuttle... Shout! Factory's JOURNEY TO SPACE

While numerous parties continue to work on the next generation of reusable space vehicle, I miss the Shuttle program. Having grown-up in the era of regular launches and becoming so familiar with the closest thing we've ever had to a movie-style spaceship (one that looked like a plane and could blast off and return), I wish that my girls could see that on a regular basis right now... especially being so curious about space (last Xmas, little Finley asked for one thing - "a space station"). With Disney Junior's MILES FROM TOMORROWLAND, Sprout's THE FLOOGALS and PBS Kids' READY JET GO all inspiring some STEM-infused space adventures (in addition to regular visits to a galaxy far, far away through STAR WARS), it's time to take a look back - and a look at where we're headed, with the June 7th release of JOURNEY TO SPACE from Shout! Factory. For their first foray into a line of new, immersive, Giant Screen films in the visually stunning 4K Ultra HD™ format, JOURNEY TO SPACE will be released on Blu-ray, and in a 4K UHD + 3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray 2-disc combo, and both releases will include trailers, a photo gallery, and behind-the-scenes footage as bonus features. Take a look at a new clip featuring the Space Shuttle Orbiter, and all the details on the film below...

Netflix Family TV: Three New Offerings to Watch Right Now, and More Coming Soon...

Netflix #StreamTeamIf you've been following my adventures over these past few months, you may have already seen some of my reporting on the Family TV "Co-Viewing" initiatives that my friends at Netflix have been rolling out. While shows like FULLER HOUSE have gotten a big push already this year, the seeds were planted awhile ago, and one of last year's surprises is coming back, with two new seasons of MGA's Netflix Original Series, Project Mc2 on-deck. The Daytime Emmy-nominated series has shown girls around the world that Smart is the New Cool, and season 2 will premiere worldwide Friday, August 12, followed by Season 3, which will be available in fall 2016. So how about something fresh to watch in the meantime? Here's a few Rock Father-approved choices to check out right now...

The Writers Room behind Hasbro's Cinematic Universe has been revealed...

Last year, Paramount Pictures and Hasbro revealed their plans to build a "cross-property interconnected onscreen universe featuring the brands G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionaries, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) and ROM." When you hear about such an "interconnected universe," it's not hard to see a line drawn back to the success of what Disney has done with MARVEL, and how other studios (including the folks at Warner Bros. with their "DC Extended Universe") are trying to capture some of that magic. In particular, the Hasbro universe is of great interest to me... a kid (albeit a big one now) that has grown-up with these properties over the past 30+ years and hopes to see them fully-realized in all their potential on the big screen -- especially G.I. Joe and M.A.S.K. Yesterday morning, the players in the "top talent writers room" responsible for bringing these stories to the screen were revealed, and there's some heavy hitters in the mix.
