Back to school is upon us, and because our children learn to text before they can tie their shoes, their list of school supplies (and personal requests) are a lot more expensive than they were in the good ole days. That means we’ll be buying laptops, cell phones, and tablets before they even reach middle school. They’ll also need the coolest apps, and of course they’ll have to see the summer’s hottest movies before they go back so that they can join in on the “who had the coolest summer” conversations. Don’t cramp their style.
You take care of the wifi connection, and we’ll handle the rest. This week, we’re giving one lucky winner a Nextbook tablet, preloaded with the Epic Coloring and Storybook app, and an “Epic” movie BD/DVD combo pack. That’s pretty epic. Comment below for your chance at the grand prize. What’s even more epic about this giveaway: 4 runner ups will also win an “Epic” movie BD/DVD combo pack courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. (And if you don”t win, the DVD releases August 20th!)
Increase your chances by leaving up to one comment a day between now and Wednesday, August 14th. Here are the official rules. Goody luck!
Congratulations to our Grand Prize Winner Debbie Johnson, and our four runner ups Sarah Magorka, Don Stoeckel, Jennifer Hollister, and Natalie Wills!
Come March 2012, the Seuss will be loose in theaters again. Movie adaptations of the classic books can be hit or miss. For example, I can watch the animated version of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas over and over again. The live-action version? Not so much. That’s why I’m happy the upcoming Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is animated. Cartoons seem a better medium for trying to capture the Dr.’s whimsical, extraordinary imagination. Check out the trailer teaser below.
I rarely use the word, “genius,” with a movie trailer. But this one comes pretty close. After watching it, I really want to see the movie. I won’t spoil it for you now by telling you the name of the film. But trust me–it’s worth the watch. Click on the screen below, and let you us know what you think. Were you surprised?
The alien invasion continues today with the release of Mars Needs Moms (rated PG), which is based on a popular picture book by Berkeley Breathed. Check out an out-of-this-world clip from the animated movie now:
The Oscars are this weekend, and unlike other media sites, we’re not interested in who’s wearing what and which actor or actress will take home lead honors. For GoodyBlog, it’s all about the best animated movie. And this year’s a toughy. We’re torn between How To Train Your Dragon and Toy Story 3. Of course The Illusionist could sneak in a win (even though we doubt very many people have actually seen it). Let us know which film you think will steal the show. Vote below.
