Shazam! On Blu-Ray Combo Pack #Review

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).

Own Shazam! on 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Special Edition on July 16, or Own It Early on Digital on July 2


My husband and I watched Shazam!  a few days ago and we both liked it.

I didn't really know much about Shazam before so I don't really know how acurate this movie is but all I can say is that I liked this movie. I found it entertaining and found it funny.

While watching it I found the time went so fast because I was enjoying the story so much.  

This will be one I know I will be watching again in the near future. 

I am giving this 5 out of 5.

Titans: The Complete First Season #Review

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own

Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes from across the world of DC as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Former Gotham City vigilante Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could unleash Hell on Earth. Joining them in their quest are the mysterious Starfire and loveable Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes while battling villains, demonic forces … and encountering familiar faces from across DC’s legendary canon.


My husband and I have watched the entire first season in 2 days.   Usually, we only watch a couple episodes but we just couldn't stop watching this show.  

I like that this has characters which you don't often see in the movies or other shows and if you aren't a bit comic book fan you get to know new characters that aren't as common to new fans. 

I found Titans season one to be very well done.  

If you have Netflix the first season is on there right now. Well it is on there here in Canada.  It is now also available on Blu-ray and digital copy. 

I give this 4 out of 5.

Dumbo #Review

“Dumbo,” the grand live-action adventure from Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, which expanded on the beloved animated classic and sent spirits soaring, prepares for a landing on June 25. Disney invites fans to fall in love again with this heartfelt story, in which differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight, when it swoops into homes on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and physically on 4K Ultra HD,  Blu-ray™ and DVD — with never-before-seen bonus features, deleted scenes, Easter eggs and bloopers.

I can't compare this version to the original because I really can't remember how the animated one was.  I know I saw it when I was a child but it never really was one I that I excited about plus it has been about 30 years since I had last seen the animated movie so I don't know how true to the original story is.

I did find this movie entertaining but it isn't one of my favourites Disney movies.  I think I will watch it again in the future. 

I give this 3 out of 5. 


*I have received a copy of this movie for my honest review*

In honour of its upcoming 70th anniversary, the timeless animated classic “Cinderella” waltzes into the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection and the hearts of a whole new generation. The enchanting tale, which showed us that dreams really do come true — and inspired countless fans to reenact the Royal Ball and Cinderella’s infamous midnight dash — arrives home Digitally in HD on June 18, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD on June 25.

When I was a little girl I loved Cinderella but I didn't own the movie.  I did own the vinyl record and a book and when ever it played on tv I would watch it so I was very happy when I received this combo pack. 

I don't have children to watch this with so I have no idea if children these days would still enjoy this old Cinderella version but I can say that I did enjoy it. It brought back so many memories.  

I am so happy to have this in my ever so growing Disney movie collection.

I give this 5 out of 5.

Gotham: The Complete Fifth and Final Season Review

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

The fifth and final season of Gotham wraps up the iconic series in an unforgettable event that focuses on Bruce Wayne’s ultimate transformation into the Caped Crusader, while Jim Gordon struggles to hold together a city on the edge of chaos. Following the epic events of season four, the Legend of the Dark Knight resumes as Gotham City is divided between Gordon’s GCPD jurisdiction and some of the city’s most notorious villains such as Penguin, The Riddler and more. As the city’s heroes try to gain control and salvage what’s left of the deteriorating city, it teeters between good and evil, even as new DC Super-Villains, including Bane are introduced.

You can now own Gotham: The Complete Fifth and Final Season. 


Well, I am sad that season 5 is the last season because I have loved watching Gotham.

I actually loved this past season because I thought it was made well and of course, I loved all the action.

I am so glad to be adding this to my collection because I know I will be re-watching the entire series again in the near future.

I am giving this 4 out of 5.

Okko's Inn on Blu-ray and DVD Review

*I have received a copy of this movie for my honest review*

After losing her parents in a car accident, Okko goes to live in the countryside with her grandmother, who runs a traditional inn near an ancient spring said to have healing waters. Okko soon discovers there are spirits living there only she can see – welcoming ghosts who keep her company, play games and help her navigate her new environment. Okko strives to be a gracious host, and this is soon put to the test by a string of challenging guests with different stories. But ultimately Okko discovers that dedicating herself to others becomes the key to taking care of herself.

The latest feature from famed anime studio Madhouse and director Kitaro Kosaka, who was a key animator on numerous classic films at the venerable Studio Ghibli, seamlessly blends immersive, idyllic landscapes with the storybook charm of Okko's beloved guests. Okko's Inn delivers a rare ghost story that is firmly grounded in the trials and joys of humanity.


I watched this movie on the weekend and I  have to admit that I liked Okko's Inn.  It does feel rushed a bit and it is predictable but this movie is made for children 9 and up so of course, I didn't really expect it to be unpredictable. 

I think it would be more enjoyed if I were a child but it is a good one to watch on family movie night. 

I am giving this 3 1/2 out of 5.
