The PowerPuff Girls Are On Hulu! #RealLifePowerPuff

This post is in partnership with Hulu. 

My kids grew up watching Powerpuff Girls. We had the toys, clothes and movies on vhs. We all are pretty happy that The PowerPuff Girls are now on Hulu.  Hulu is the only place to find the full classic animated series. As one of Cartoon Network’s most enduring original series, the initial run of The Powerpuff Girls, created by Craig McCracken, premiered in 1998 and quickly became a global phenomenon. Since its premiere, the series earned two Emmy® Awards along with five nominations and countless animation honors throughout its 80 episodes.

The Powerpuff Girls centers on three sugar-coated superheroes, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, whose missions in life alternate between going to school, fighting crime, winning at hopscotch and saving the world before bedtime. The girls are frequently called upon by the town’s mayor to help fight nearby criminals using their powers. While their differences cause them to squabble and tease, their individual strengths combined always lead them to victory. They rely on teamwork, trust, and friendship to thwart evil (in the most adorable way).

My daughter Jazz gets my vote for a #RealLifePowerpuff. She is a single mom to my beautiful granddaughter Leilani. She is a great parent who works hard to put a roof over their heads.  Jazz is also a full time student. It isn’t always easy dealing with work, daycare and life while raising a daughter. She doesn’t let the obstacles that come her way bring her down. I love that she never gives up and plans to fulfill her dream of becoming a photographer.

Rock Dog Movie Prize Pack Giveaway

Giveaway prizing and samples provided by Liongate Premiere. Opinions are 100% my own as always.

When it comes to watching family friendly movies, you can never go wrong with animation. I look for movies that tell a good story while being fun to watch. Rock Dog seems like it will fit the bill.

RD-Banner

When a radio falls from the sky into the hands of a wide-eyed Tibetan Mastiff, he leaves home to fulfill his dream of becoming a musician, setting into motion a series of completely unexpected events.

Who doesn’t want to follow their dreams? I know I encourage my kids to do just that no matter what anyone thinks. Life just isn’t the same without dreams. Rock Dog sounds like a fun adventure that the entire family will enjoy. Plus the star of the movie is a dog and we love dogs in our family! I swear sometimes our dog Scottie thinks he human. He is scared of the dark and loves to be carried like a baby. He is pretty good at giving us the side eye too. We love him to pieces and could not image life without him.

Rock Dog opens in theaters February 24, 2017 starring Luke Wilson (Bodi), Eddie Izzard (Angus), J.K. Simmons (Khampa), Lewis Black (Linnux), Kenan Thompson (Riff),  Mae Whitman (Darma), Jorge Garcia (Germur), with Matt Dillon (Trey) and Sam Elliott (Fleetwood Yak).

Chasing their dreams one step at a time. See Angus and Bodi in Rock Dog in theaters February 24th.

The LEGO Movie App Trailer

I am looking forward to seeing it this movie. I am trying to convince my husband to go with me. I have not seen a LEGO movie before but I love Batman and this movie looks like it will be pretty funny. I was definitely laughing while I was watching the trailer.

LegoBatman-Poster

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

Binge Worthy: My Favorite Netflix Series

Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Five. I barely watch live tv anymore. I love to stream tv shows and movies. Why? Because no commercials mean no interruptions. I get a lot of use out of my Roku and the Netflix channel is one of my favorites. Everyone is always looking for shows to watch on Netflix so I wanted to share five of my favorite series.

weekly friday five post

Supernatural

There is no list without my favorite wayward brothers Sam and Dean. I have watched the series since the beginning. If you like shows with a supernatural theme, turn off the lights and binge away. This series has made me laugh and cry. I have watched the entire series a few times and I never get tired of it. I always discover something new.  I am kind of obsessed with Supernatural and love to talk about it!

Dollhouse

People are implanted with memories and skills so they can be the perfect doll for rich clients. They have no memory of who they were before. The story line focuses on a group of four main “Dolls” and the people in charge of keeping the Dollhouse a secret.  Each week the dolls become someone new.

Graceland

Graceland is the name of a beachfront house that was seized by the government and home to undercover agents from the FBI, DEA and Customs. They all work together to solve cases but there are a lot of lies and secrets. I stumbled across this series and think it is pretty good. I like cop shows so this was right up my alley. I have heard it is based on actual events too.

American Horror Story

This series has a supernatural element and pushes the envelope. It is not family friendly so no kids allowed. They tell a story in such a way each season that I can’t help but watch it. I feel this is a show either you like it or you won’t. I love how the actors play different characters in each season. There are some big name stars in it too including Angela Bassett, Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Gabourey Sidibe and Dylan McDermott.

Blacklist

A wanted fugitive turns himself in to help the FBI catch fugitives they didn’t even know existed. in exchange for immunity.  Red has a special connection to a profiler that we have not yet figured out. For now all we know is he will work only work with Liz and the people on The Blacklist are part of a bigger plan. Three seasons are on Netflix and I can’t enough of this crime drama.

Do you watch Netflix? What are some of your favorite shows? I am always looking for recommendations.

5 Movies I Want To See In The Next 30 Days

I was on my Sister In Law’s blog, Milwaukee Brown Girl, and saw a great post idea. It is called Friday Five. Every Friday you share a post about five things. I like the idea behind this because the topics will vary each week. This is perfect for me so here is my first post for Friday Five.

weekly friday five post

I have mentioned before how much my husband and I love going to the movies. So much that I weekly date night includes a visit to our favorite theater.

5 Movies I Want To See In The Next Month

  1. Hidden Figures I have heard good things about this movie. I want to take my entire family to see it. I think it is important to see strong and smart Africian American women in a movie. The fact that it is a true story makes it even better.
  2. XXX: Return of Xander Cage This one snuck up on me. It has been 11 years since XXX: State of The Union. I did not think they would make another one. From the looks of the trailer it looks like it might be the best one yet. Lots of action which I love.
  3. Split I love a good thriller just as much as action when it comes to movies. I am a big fan of all of  M. Night Shyamalan movies because I can never figure them out and I am always surprised. Who else would think of a storyline where someone with 24 personalites kidnaps 3 girls?
  4. Fist Fight It is always great to see Ice Cube in a comedy.  Usually you see kids that involved in a last day of school fight. I think it will be pretty fun to see this twist with teachers.
  5. Sleepless  I am a sucker for cop movies. T.I and Jamie Foxx play dirty Las Vegas cops. Jamie Foxx’s son gets kidnapped in the middle of a internal affairs investigation. This looks like a good one.

I am pretty sure I will make it to see all of these. My husband lets me picks the movie so I don’t have to worry about trying to convince him to see anything.

What movies are you looking forward to watching?

wild life movie review

From the over-exuberant parrot Mak to the snack-obsessed tapir Rosie, from the persnickety echidna Epi to the acrobatic pangolin Pango, from the ditzy goat Scrubby to the commonsensical kingfisher Kiki and the always-cool chameleon Carmello, things are larger-than-life on a tropical isle that is pure wild animal paradise.  the wild life reviewThen Robinson Crusoe, a marooned human, arrives in the midst of a furious storm, and their lives are forever changed by this bewildering new “creature.

the wild life review

I like that this movie kind of introduces a newer generations to Robinson Crusoe with a slight twist. The animals are a fun and quirky bunch. Tuesday is my favorite. The story is pretty family friendly. We enjoyed watching Robinson and the animals work together to defend themselves against the savage cats invading their home.
