Warner Bros Pictures, Chris Hemsworth, giveaway, sweeps, fandango giveaway, The Declassfied True Story of the Horse Soldiers, books made into movies



I'm sure many of us remember exactly where we were on September 11th, 2001.  I was in my (private school) classroom teaching like any other week day.  I remember someone from the office coming down to my room to tell me about the horrible events at the World Trade Center and The Pentagon.  Many parents in our school worked in DC, so there were parents coming in to pick up their children early and lots of talking in the halls.  I didn't know the magnitude of what had happened until I watched the news at home, and it was horrifying.

That day changed us all and changed the direction of our country.

12 STRONG is coming to theaters January 19th, and looks to be a very moving film based upon the book, 12 Strong: The Declassified True Story of the Horse Soldiers.      



12 STRONG is one of the great unknown stories of American valor. Twelve brave U.S. soldiers dropped everything and ventured into an unknown land, outnumbered 5,000 to 1 to complete one of the most successful special forces missions of all time. However, they had to use the rudimentary tactics of the Afghan horse soldiers rather than state-of-the-art warfare to battle the heavily-armed Taliban. This is the amazing story of these 12 heroes and the families who wondered if they would come home alive.

Chris Hemsworth (“Thor”) and Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (“Nocturnal Animals,” “The Shape of Water”) star in “12 Strong,” a powerful new war drama from Alcon Entertainment, Black Label Media and Jerry Bruckheimer Films that tells the declassified true story of the first American soldiers sent into Afghanistan after 9/11.

Award-winning director Nicolai Fuglsig directed the film, which is produced by legendary producer Jerry Bruckheimer (the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, “Black Hawk Down”), together with Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill under their Black Label Media banner (“La La Land,” “Sicario”).


Oscar winner Ted Tally (“The Silence of the Lambs”) and Peter Craig (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Parts 1 & 2”) wrote the screenplay, based on the acclaimed book Horse Soldiers by author Doug Stanton. The executive producers are Oscar nominees and Alcon principals Andrew A. Kosove and Broderick Johnson (“The Blind Side”), together with Chad Oman, Mike Stenson, Ellen H. Schwartz, Garrett Grant, Yale Badik, Val Hill and Doug Stanton.


This film has been rated R by the MPAA for war violence and language throughout.

I received My Little Pony: The Movie for review.  All opinions are mine.

This holiday/winter break didn't feel long enough, did it?  We had some super cold weather and spent a lot of time indoors with lots of games, playdough, and of course, movies.  My girls were super excited to have My Little Pony: The Movie show up at our door to watch over our break!

Directed by “My Little Pony” veteran Jayson Thiessen (“My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic”) and including original music and songs performed by Sia, Taye Diggs, Zoe Saldana, Kristin Chenoweth, and Emily Blunt, My Little Pony: The Movie is full of music, fun, and laughter for the whole family. The My Little Pony: The Movie Blu-ray and DVD include all-new special features, including a deleted scene, a music video, three featurettes starring the Mane 6, an exclusive Equestria Girls Short and a Hanazuki short.

BLU-RAY/DVD/DIGITAL SPECIAL FEATURES
·       Deleted Scene
·       Equestria Girls Short
·       “Baking with Pinkie Pie” Featurette

My Little Pony: The Movie was everything we thought it would be.  The story line resembles something out of a Disney princess movie; a princess goes off in search of someone to help save her kingdom, finds friends along the way, encounters the "evil" character in an epic good vs. evil battle, and there's a whole lot of singing awesomeness throughout.

Holiday Gift Guide

If you're a fan of the series, you will love the movie!  The "bad guy" King Storm is bad, but you also can't help but laugh at his corny humor.  You'll meet some new characters, including Sia as pony Songbird Serenade, whose song "Rainbow" is perfectly suited to the movie. Emily Blunt is wonderful as Tempest Shadow, and wow, can that girl sing!    


There are great themes about team work, friendship, forgiveness, trust, kindness, accepting differences, and learning from your mistakes.

My three-year-old and six-year-old girls were engaged in the movie the entire time.  There aren't any super scary parts, so you can watch with kids of different ages.  


Did you know there is My Little Pony facebook camera mask so you can make yourself pony-tastic too as Twilight Sparkle and Tempest Shadow?  It'll keep your kids (and you) entertained for a while!
