Additionally, Star Wars Rebels' third season will be hitting Blu-ray this fall, and there's a new episode of The Star Wars Show that covers everything that I've just mentioned here... and then some.

As we cross the mid-point in the year, it's roughly 180 days until Christmas. Indeed, the holiday season is a big deal here at Rock Father HQ, and over the years that spirit has made its way into the virtual pages of THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine via my annual Holiday Wish Guide™, and my ongoing seasonal lists of new release holiday music and movies. With that comes one of 2017's first Christmas movies, and this one is a bit unexpected since it's from the BAD MOMS... a known favorite among readers and friends of the site. This November, get ready for A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS! See the "Red Band" (Restricted) trailer below! Believe me, it's naughty - so don't watch with the kids in the room. You have been warned, but there's a cleaner version here.

Last year, I lucked out as my oldest daughter and I happened to be at Nintendo of America HQ outside of Seattle on the very day that the much-anticipated NES Classic was released. We were technically there for a project related to the 3DS system, but the folks at Nintendo were kind enough to set aside a stack of Classics for folks in our group to purchase. Fortunately, I did grab the Mini edition of the famed 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System, as the $59.99 item was quickly hard-to-come-by, and resellers were charging hundreds. When news came that the system was discontinued this spring (after failing to meet demand), rumors swirled that something new was in the pipeline... a Mini Edition of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). Yesterday, the SNES Classic Edition was officially announced, and it's hitting the streets on September 29, 2017 with an MSRP of just $79.99.
