This #TeamJurassic special feature is brought to you in collaboration with Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
Dinosaurs have been a massive trend in pop culture and play this year, and at the summer box office that was extremely evident with the arrival of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, now available on Blu-Ray. The second chapter in the rebooted franchise took audiences back to the island once more - a place where Jurassic Park once stood with the intention of welcoming guests 25 years ago. Now, after the collapse of Jurassic World - a successful park build on the foundation of the original - Owen and Claire were back to save the dinosaurs from a second extinction… an adventure that left the island and has now come home.

Over the past few years, we've had some "family movie nights," but they haven't really been an event. I remember a few times as a kid in the 80s when a true family movie night was watching something on "live" television with no VCR (I remember seeing THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK on one such occasion) with some pizza (usually Aurelio's) served-up on plain white paper plates that were placed in some brightly-colored wicker/rattan holders. When the pizza was done, the popcorn would be served as the whole family gathered in front of the 'tube for the feature presentation. While those days seem so much simpler, they were memorable, and my wife and I hope to create some similarly-lasting memories for our own daughters. For our first true "event" style Family Movie Night, I stopped by Walmart and picked up one of this year's Academy Award Nominees for "Best Animated Feature," THE BOXTROLLS.
It doesn't happen often, but once in awhile there's a head-scratcher that arrives here at Rock Father HQ. The new film, CHARLIE: A TOY STORY is a prime example. Out on DVD April 2, 2013 through eOne Films, CHARLIE: A TOY STORY was produced by Engine 15 Media Group, the folks behind the embarassingly terrible A CARS LIFE movies (four so far) that shamelessly target Grandparents and budget-concious consumers that might be tricked into thinking they're picking up the latest installment of the popular Disney-Pixar franchise. They were also behind CHIHUAHUA: THE MOVIE, which I'm sure was meant to look absolutely nothing like the Disney-released BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA, which of course is why my Mom accidentally picked up a copy of the former much to the disappointment of the grandkids (not mine, but others). See a pattern here?
Baseball season is just around the corner, and with it comes the 20th Anniversary of THE SANDLOT. The perennial favorite will be released on a deluxe Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack on March 26th via 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment followed by a special, season-long screening tour that will see the film screened at Major and Minor League ballparks across the country, hosted by Writer/Director/Narrator David Mickey Evans.

Being a child of the 80's, the idea of a ''family movie night'' has been something of a distant memory for awhile. All of the major networks at some point featured movies during prime time, and as cable and new media took over, the idea of watching a flick ''live'' on TV kind of went away - as did the gathering aspect for a lot of families. Despite the often negative perceptions toward corporate sponsorships and product placement, Walmart and P&G (Procter & Gamble) have been making an attempt to rekindle the spirit with their own FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT series.
