I feel so out of the loop on the Fortnite craze - I've never played it and don't even know where to start. Now comes news that Thanos is getting involved for a limited time mashup and I'm really tempted to jump in. As of today, the Fortnite x Avengers Mashup is live, and a short teaser has been released. Check it out below and then see if you have what it takes to control the Infinity Stones...

With Avengers: Infinity War now thrilling audiences on the big screen, it's time for another adventure to come home...

Marvel Studios' BLACK PANTHER is a global phenomenon.  Now the #3 movie of all-time, the story of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), a young African prince who takes on the mantle of King and Super Hero, has thrilled and inspired generations of moviegoers. Coming to 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on May 15, 2018, BLACK PANTHER is available to own NOW on Digital HD and thanks to my friends at Disney Movies, The Rock Father is giving you a chance to win it!

It was during Wizard World Chicago in 2016 that Jumpin' Jamie first hit my radar - performing pop culture and pop punk inspired family music to a live audience. Now, the New Jersey-based kindie rocker is readying his full-length debut album Kookie, a record that's inspired by some of the bands that shaped his own love of music - bands such as Green Day, R.E.M., The Beatles, Weezer, Ash and more. Today, The Rock Father™ is presenting the World Premiere of Jumpin' Jamie's debut single - "Back to the Future" - complete with a music video by artist Marie Chatelot, re-telling the events of Robert Zemeckis' Back to the Future (1985) and Back to the Future II (1989) in stop-motion cardboard animation. Crank up the speakers and fire up the Flux Capacitor, then hit "play" on the video below!

My wife asked me not to be a jerk about this, but there is no way I can let this one slide by. There are some properties out there where you have to just shake your head and wonder how their respective owners can keep running them into the ground, and Scooby-Doo is one of those. What makes it especially painful is that Warner Bros. is allowing a cherished franchise that's delighted millions of families for the past 50 years (2019 will mark the anniversary) to be marred by a string of sub-par spin-offs and re-imaginings. The 2002 live-action Scooby-Doo and its 2004 sequel, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed were both written by a pre-Guardians of the Galaxy James Gunn and both were pretty entertaining and well-received. Then there was the excellent Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated  that ran from 2010-2013 - a series that served as a perfect entry to Scooby-Doo for my own daughters. And then the turn happened. A pair of not-great live-action "prequel" TV movies paired with the bizarre Family Guy-style animation of Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! would be followed by the announcement of a live-action Daphne & Velma movie. With that film hitting Blu-ray and DVD on May 22, 2018, the cast is starting to do press this week, and I feel for all parties involved when the interviews start rolling. The trailer that was released last month looks absolutely terrible, and the Blu-ray art is a horrible use of Photoshop in which the faces of the actresses look awkwardly placed atop equally awkward poses. See for yourself...

At the 115th North American International Toy Fair this year, I happened to come across the Imperial Toy booth and some of their latest offerings on the bubble front. For years Imperial's bubbles have been a staple of outdoor play, but one new spin on the classic is something that's been kicking around since 2015, gradually being improved and readied for its major public push. Created by a pediatrician and allergist,Lick-A-Bubble is a special solution that allows kids to create flavored bubbles from just about any drink (just stay away from dairy, pulps, and steer non-carbonated). And for the grownups, yes - you can use this with your favorite "adult beverage" - and that's exactly how I first tried them.
