I've mentioned Jim Henson’s EMMET OTTER’S JUG-BAND CHRISTMAS many times in the past, if only because it's one of my all-time favorite holiday specials - one that I watched on HBO more times than I could count as a child. Now comes news that it's coming back to DVD on October 10 (pre-order via Amazon) from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment as a 40th Anniversary Edition, fully-remastered for a new generation.

2017 marks the 20th Anniversary of the Teletubbies - Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po - a quartet of colorful aliens with a childlike curiosity about the world around them. As I first wrote about earlier this year, the legend of the Teletubbies continues to grow as the series and characters have been updated for a new generation of tech-savvy tots, with new episodes airing weekdays at 9:47am on Nick Jr. There's the new toys from Spin Master, and from DHX Media and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, the new "Big Hugs" DVD. With summer road trip season upon us, now is the perfect time to bring the Teletubbies along for the ride, ad we're gonna give you a shot at winning some new DVDs to take with you!
It's kind of a weird thing, but it wasn't until just a few weeks before the debut of SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE this spring that I realized it wasn't a continuation of the live-action films from the last few years. Instead, the latest take on the Smurfs is fully-animated in CGI, and I've heard good things about it. Now, Sony Pictures Animation's SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE is coming home, arriving on digital June 20 and on 4K Ultra HD™/Blu-ray™ + Digital, Blu-ray + Digital and DVD July 11 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Check out all the details from the official announcement below!
Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po are back! If you'd have told me twenty years ago that I'd be writing about Teletubbies two decades in the future, I wouldn't have believed it, as I was working in a store back when the Teletubbies craze first hit. It was something that I didn't understand back then, but as a parent now, it's something I can appreciate. With new episodes airing daily on Nick Jr. and new toys hitting the 'States via Spin Master right now, the folks at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have just released TELETUBBIES: SNOWBALL on DVD, and we've teamed-up to offer readers a shot at a prize pack! One (1) lucky reader of THE ROCK FATHER Magazine will receive TELETUBBIES: SNOWBALL on DVD, plus the new Lullaby Laa-Laa Musical Night Light Plush Toy!
2016 Should've been the year of the GHOSTBUSTERS, but unlike the supernatural forces that the cast of the new film faced-off against on screen, the battle against internet trolls was a little tougher to defeat. Despite the unusual backlash over the reboot of the classic franchise, GHOSTBUSTERS: ANSWER THE CALL hit theaters (read my original review here) and won over audiences and critics alike, hopefully positioning the Ghostbusters for future adventures (both animated and live-action) in the years ahead. Out now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, GHOSTBUSTERS is a perfect movie for Halloween, and a cool idea to "Boo" your neighbors with. Have you ever been BOO'd? We have...
"This is how I remember the 80s - there were no parenting blogs or peanut allergies, just a whole lotta crazy."
That's the opening narration from THE GOLDBERGS, Patton Oswalt providing the off-camera voice of the adult Adam Goldberg, the youngest of the three kids at the center of ABC's breakout hit from last year. While kids of the 60s eventually had THE WONDER YEARS, and those a decade later getting THAT 70's SHOW, it's only fitting that kids like myself - the ones who grew up in "1980-something" - finally get a series that properly captures our decade. While there have been a few who've tried and failed, THE GOLDBERGS (out this week in a Complete First Season DVD set) is undoubtedly the best we've ever seen.
