MONSTERS UNIVERSITY (Blu-Ray Review)

MONSTERS UNIVERSITYIt didn't even hit me until recently that MONSTERS INC. is already a twelve-year-old movie, just the fourth film in a string of hits born of the now-famed Disney•Pixar relationship. Released nearly eight years before I became a parent - or, "The Rock Father" - my little ones hadn't actually seen the film prior to the release of MONSTERS UNIVERSITY (Disney•Pixar's 14th film) earlier this summer. While we'd missed the new prequel during it's theatrical run, a review copy arrived here at Rock Father HQ courtesy of Disney... conveniently just one day after we'd seen the original broadcast on Disney XD.

THE ROCK FATHER - ROCK YOUR HOLIDAYSIt's almost the season to be jolly, and my friends at Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment are gearing up to release their latest seasonal film, HOME ALONE: THE HOLIDAY HEIST. The fifth installment of the HOME ALONE franchise first appeared last year as an ABC Family Movie Event, and this year it comes home on October 29th, arriving on DVD just in time for the holidays. FoxConnect has teamed-up with The Rock Father to get two lucky readers hooked up with copies of the new DVD, and you can find your chance below. Ho Ho Ho!

We're really excited about this. On November 19, Disney's PLANES is coming home on Blu-Ray and DVD. We've already had a great time visiting Propwash Junction and staging our own "Wings Across the World" race here at Rock Father HQ (check out our adventure here), and now we'll be able to watch the adventures of Dusty Crophopper and the gang whenever we'd like. Check out an 8-minute extended preview of Disney's PLANES below, along with full details on the home release...

This weekend, the family movie season gets started in a big way, with the release of CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2. To usher in the Fall Cinema Season, my friends at MovieTickets.com have teamed up with The Rock Father to get one lucky reader and their family hooked-up with $50 in free movie tickets and a copy of the CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 Soundtrack. It's a prize pack that would make for a perfect family night at the movies... but if you want to have a "Grownups Night Out" to catch METALLICA: THROUGH THE NEVER, I wouldn't hold that against you.
