movies about the Beatles

Are you a fan of The Beatles?  Then you'll be happy to bring your family and friends together to watch YESTERDAY, on Digital September 10, 2019 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand September 24, 2019. 

Jack’s life is changed forever when he discovers he is the only person on earth who remembers the music of The Beatles and must decide if he truly wants the spotlight, or if all he needs is love, after all. 

Filled with heart and humor from beginning to end, Yesterday on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital comes packed with exciting bonus features including deleted and extended scenes, live performances at the iconic Abbey Road Studios, an alternate opening and ending and several featurettes with the filmmakers and cast that take fans further into the charming story. 




Hailed as “Funny, original, and touching” (Patrick Stoner, “Flicks” WHYY-TV (PBS)), Yesterday is a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life. Stay in, “re-experience the Beatles' songs as if they're brand-new” (Mara Reinstein, Billboard) and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles’ Abbey Road this year with the perfect at-home movie night when you own Yesterday on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital.
 
Jack Malik was just another struggling songwriter...but that was yesterday. After a mysterious blackout, Jack (Himesh Patel; BBC’s “EastEnders”) discovers he is the only person on earth who remembers The Beatles! As he rockets to fame by passing off the Fab Four’s songs as his own, Jack risks losing Ellie (Lily James; Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Cinderella) – the one person who has loved him and believed in him from the start. 



Kate McKinnon and Ed Sheeran also star in this romantic rock ‘n’ roll comedy from Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually).
 
The soundtrack to YESTERDAY is available on digital/streaming services as well as CD from Capitol Records/Polydor Records. The album will be available on vinyl Friday, August 16.

Can you imagine a world where the Beatles didn't exist?  Would you try to pass off their amazing music and lyrics as your own?  


I love a quirky light-hearted romantic film, and Yesterday is definitely that.  I think Lily James is a wonderful actress and love love LOVED her in Mama Mia Here We Go Again!  She plays the supportive road manager who just happens to be in love with her best friend.  And we all know how difficult unrequited love can be!

Spoiler Alert:

I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone, but I was definitely surprised that the world didn't go back to what it had been.  I mean, usually if some mystical magical event occurs to change the world, shouldn't some event change it back?  Or perhaps that was the intention.  

Regardless, I loved the film and really enjoyed the music.  If you don't want to check out all the Beatles songs in existence after watching it, I'll be shocked.

Adventures of Dally & Spanky DVD #Giveaway

9/9/19
This non-sponsored post contains affiliate links.



Giveaway

Adventures of Dally and Spanky from Sony Pictures Entertainment is coming to DVD and Digital Tuesday Sept. 10th.  It looks like a cute film for the family to watch together.

Inspired by the true animal friendship of a Jack Russell Terrier and a rescued miniature horse, the story of Dally & Spanky’s bond has captivated audiences. This sensational duo has generated millions of video views and is now the inspiration for this brand-new feature film!


Giveaway


Addy and Ella are teenaged half-sisters with little in common. When 17-year-old Addy loses her father, she retreats from her family and struggles to deal with his loss. Ella, with her dog Dally, reaches out to create a bond with Addy and Spanky, the miniature horse she’s just inherited from her father. Not only do the animals get along, but they quickly become a dynamic duo thanks to Addy and Ella’s training. Their act quickly goes viral and wins their high school talent show, bringing the girls closer! Unfortunately, the family realizes that the cost to keep Spanky is too high and they’ll have to send him away. But Addy gets an idea and submits their routine to a popular TV talent show. Now, it’s all or nothing…and ANYTHING can happen!

Giveaway

The amazing real-life dog and pony friendship that took the internet by storm becomes a feature-length film when ADVENTURES OF DALLY & SPANKY rides onto DVD and Digital September 10 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Brenna D’Amico (TV’s “Descendants”), whose father is played by country music superstar Trace Adkins, and Reylynn Caster (TV’s “American Housewife”) star as half-sisters who prove that anything is possible when their two animal companions form an unlikely bond that sends their family on an amazing, inspirational journey.   

ADVENTURES OF DALLY & SPANKY also stars Elaine Hendrix (The Parent Trap) and Denise Richards (Starship Troopers). Rated PG for brief language.

Directed by Camille Stochitch, ADVENTURES OF DALLY & SPANKY was written and produced by Tyler W. Konney with Barbara Greaves, Bobby Hillis and Stochitch as executive producers.

One reader will win Adventures of Dally and Spanky on DVD

Disney's ALADDIN Live-Action and Signature Collection #Giveaway @disneyaladdin #Sponsored #DisneyAladdin

9/5/19
This is a sponsored post for Disney.  This post contains affiliate links.

This month Disney is releasing not one, but two ALADDIN movies!  Now you can own the original animated version as well as Disney's live-action ALADDIN  Blu-ray./DVD.  


Disney movies

ALADDIN

The animated "Aladdin" is my absolute favorite.  It's hard to top Robin Williams as genie.  I wasn't sure if I would like a live-action remake.  But I was pleasantly surprised!

Disney's live-action Aladdin has a wonderful cast and a great twist on the genie story.  I grew up watching Will Smith as a teen, so it was a little weird to see "The Fresh Prince" with blue skin and a top knot.  After I got over that initial weirdness, Will Smith's genie was hilarious and fun.  Naomi Scott brought Jasmine to life in an empowered way.  Her singing voice is also pretty amazing!   {not to mention she wears gorgeous outfits}

Both my eight year old and my five year old loved the live-action version just as much as the original animated version.


Disney’s Aladdin Live-Action



Naomi Scott

Enjoy Disney’s ALADDIN, the live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic, in the comfort of your own home as it becomes available on Digital in HD, 4K Ultra HD™ and Movies Anywhere on August 27th, and physically on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD on September 10th! 


Disney giveaway

The release of the live-action adventure coincides with the addition of the original animated classic for the Walt Disney Signature Collection. Now you can own both movies! Cast Members include: Aladdin (Mena Massoud), Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and Genie (Will Smith). Extras include music videos, deleted scenes and bloopers. You’ll get a first look at an all-new song “Desert Moon,” deleted from the final film, written by eight-time Academy Award® winning composer Alan Menken and Oscar®-and Tony Award®-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (The Greatest Showman, La La Land).


Features document Guy Ritchie’s joyful, easy-going approach to directing that led to movie magic; Will Smith’s fresh take on the infamous shape-shifting blue entity confined to an oil lamp; Naomi Scott’s powerful performance as the spirited princess who yearns to lead the people of Agrabah; and the indescribable feeling of playing Aladdin chronicled personally by Mena Massoud, and more.
