Tom and Jerry set out on one of their biggest, boldest adventures yet in Tom and Jerry: Spy Quest. Get set for intrigue, thrills, suspense and high-action as the animated duo get wrapped up in a top secret, spy-tacular, fun-filled mission the whole family can enjoy together.  It’s just another day at the beach for the dueling Tom and Jerry…that is until they bump into world-class junior spies Jonny Quest, Hadji and their canine companion Bandit. When longtime Quest family nemesis Dr. Zin discovers that Jonny’s father, Dr. Benton Quest, has a device to solve the world’s energy problems, he sends his evil cat army to steal it and capture him and his bodyguard, Race Bannon.  Jonny and his new furry friends set out on an action-packed quest to find his father and save the world from the malicious Dr. Zin. 

It is now available on dvd online and in stores near you.


Well I am a fan of Tom and Jerry and I have been since I was a little girl so when I received this to review I was super excited and I couldn't wait to watch it. 

In this movie Tom and Jerry meet up with Jonny Quest.  I wasn't sure how well this would work out but I was surprised that this was a good movie.  Kept me entertained and I admit it just sucked me in.  I often multi-task when I watch dvds because I can't seem to focus on just one thing at a time but while watching  Tom and Jerry: Spy Quest I pretty much watched it all without being distracted by other things.

No matter what age you are, if you are or were a Tom and Jerry fan I think this is a good one to add to your collection. 

I give this 5 out of 5

Two and a Half Men: The Complete Twelfth and Final Season On DVD *Review*

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 

Season Twelve begins with an unexpected twist when single billionaire Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) suffers a mild heart attack on his way to a Halloween party.  Walden's brush with death causes him to reevaluate his life and he decides to become a father.  But after attempting to adopt as a single guy, Walden turns to his best friend/housemate, Alan Harper (Jon Cryer) for help, and Alan's dreams of living in the Malibu beach house forever come true when Walden proposes.  Walden and Alan convince their social worker that they’re a loving, albeit quirky, couple by day – while sneaking girlfriends out of the house by night.  Eventually, the guys welcome six-year-old foster child Louis (new series regular Edan Alexander) into their lives and all sorts of comedic exploits unfold as newlyweds Walden and Alan adjust to their new lives as co-parents, husbands and bachelors.  Everything seems perfect at the household for these two and a half men until they get a surprise visit from Charlie's widow, Rose, (recurring guest star Melanie Lynskey) and learn that Charlie Harper is alive.  Or is he?

Own it on DVD & Digital HD June 16, 2015


I haven't been watching this show from the very beginning .  Heck the twelfth season is the only season I seen an entire season.  Not because the show is horrible but because I had other shows I wanted to watch more than this one.

Anyway,  I had watched a bunch of episodes from previous seasons before and I did find them funny and I did find this last season funny.It did keep me entertained but this show just isn't one of my favourites and it isn't one I would marathon or just watch just when I needed a good laugh. There are other comedies I prefer for that.

I know a lot of people who loves this show but personally it isn't one I can't live without and just have to buy the DVDs like some other shows out there.

I know one of my sisters loves this show so I will be giving this to her because I know she will enjoy this more than I do .

I give this 3 out of 5.

May GeekFuel Box Review

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 

Geek Fuel is a subscription box in the geek and gamer category. What can you expect in the subscription boxes?  Geek Toys, Collectibles, Downloadable Games & Digital Content, T-Shirts, Action Figures ,Exclusive Movie Posters , Comics & More.
Here is the link to where you can find how much the subscription boxes cost .

Here is what was in May' GeekFuel box:

Isn't this poster cute? I really like this one.
Fake tattoos and a game code for Square Heroes
pack of Plants vs. Zombies pins.
These were the pins in those packs. They are so cute that I think I might pin them on my backpack.
Secret Wars issue #1 with a certificate of authenticity 
Weeping Angels (Doctor Who t shirt) Which I love and already people asked me about it. 
I don't really know what it is. It looks like you can use as a bracelet or maybe a drink cozy. 
Weeping Angels Don't Blink Tour 2015 this was a ticket. This was you could
potentially win a special  Doctor Who mystery box. I didn't win. 
And of course the GeekFuel magazine 
Like the  other boxes I have received I am super impressed with this one. I find GeekFuel is cheaper than other  "geek" subscription boxes out there and you get your money's worth and then some. 

I very highly recommend GeekFuel.

My husband and I watched this last night and we both very much enjoyed it. It is very well done.  We had a few laughs and it is action packed. It is a little messed up and there is lots fighting and blood but it is a very good movie if you are into this kind of movie, which we are.  

I give this 5 out of 5

This compilation will present viewers with 13 fully re-mastered theatrical shorts, produced by Deitch, plus brand-new bonus features. It’s a release that collectors of classic animation, won’t want to miss! Tom and Jerry: The Gene Deitch Collection will retail for $26.99 SRP.

For decades, that tussling twosome Tom and Jerry have chased their way into the funny bones and hearts of moviegoers and television viewers in a variety of unforgettable cartoons. In the 1960s, acclaimed animation director Deitch, was selected to bring a new set of Tom and Jerry shorts to life. Adding his own distinctive style to the famous cartoon, Deitch worked with William L. Snyder’s Prague-based animation studio, Rembrandt Films to create 13 memorable shorts. This entertaining collection from WBHE, brings Deitch’s fun-filled cartoons together for the first time on DVD, completely re-mastered.

Tom and Jerry: The Gene Deitch Collection will include two bonus features; Tom and Jerry…and Gene: The Rembrant Years as well as Much Ado About Tom and Jerry.

“Over the years, there have been many artists who have put their own unique touch on Tom and Jerry cartoons. This collection recognizes the work of long-time animator Gene Deitch, who directed over a dozen shorts,” commented Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President of Family and Animation Marketing. She added, “We’re delighted to bring these beautifully remastered shorts to collectors. If you are a fan of classic Tom and Jerry shorts or just love animation, this is a must-own DVD for your home entertainment library.”

Originally created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Tom and Jerry centers on the never-ending rivalry between Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse. The plots of each short usually center on Tom’s attempts to capture Jerry. Jerry however, is clever and quick on his feet so Tom hardly ever manages to catch him. The original series is notable for
having won the Academy Award® for Best Short Subject: Cartoon seven times.
