The Rocky Horror Picture Show - 40th Anniversary Celebration Blu-ray Review

The Rocky Horror Picture Show quickly became a pop cultural phenomenon passed down from generation to generation. Now, after four decades, it’s back stronger than ever with an all-new Ultimate Collector’s Edition, featuring limited edition packaging, exclusive collectible pink surgical gloves, fishnet stockings and a soundtrack for its army of die-hard fans!

In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon), stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite scientist. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker (Meat Loaf) and a creepy butler (Richard O'Brien). Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named "Rocky."

It's been 40 years since Tim Curry rocked our socks off in the classic movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I remember watching this movie at least once a year when I was growing up. I absolutely loved everything about this movie from the beginning to end. The songs were catchy and Time Warp was one of my all time favorite songs.

The 40th Anniversary Celebration Blu-ray highlights everything we loved about this classic movie and more. With bonus features that include past celebrations, deleted musical scenes and alternate endings and even Rocky-oke: Sing It! Although my hubby refused to sing, I got to sing all of the songs I loved from the movie and enjoyed every bit of it. There's so many other bonus features included and makes this blu-ray a must to have in your movie collection.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show's 40th Anniversary Celebration on Blu-ray is now available. Be sure to grab this before it's too late.

Spy Blu-ray Review

Deskbound CIA analyst Susan Cooper (McCarthy) is about to become the world’s newest — and unlikeliest — secret weapon. When her partner (Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Statham) is compromised, Susan volunteers to go deep undercover and bring down a deadly arms dealer. Loaded with wise-cracking action and adventure, SPY is a mission impossible to resist!

I am a HUGE fan of Melissa McCarthy. I have been ever since she played Sookie in Gilmore Girls. I've loved her in pretty much every movie she has been in and lately she's been starring in some pretty hilarious films that just keeps coming. Spy was no different. It kept me laughing like Bridesmaids and the action reminded me of The Heat. This is definitely a great action-comedy to watch and would perfect for a movie night in whether you're on a date or with a group of friends. Not only do we get to laugh until our tummy's hurt, but we also get a bit of eye candy in this movie as well since both Jude Law and Jason Statham are in the movie as well.

I'd definitely recommend this movie for any Melissa McCarthy fans and also just because this movie is hilarious and you'll definitely get a kick out of it. Plus the awesome bonus feature that has a hilarious gag reel that keeps you entertained. Spy is now out on both Blu-ray and DVD.

Empire Season One Blu-ray Review

After music mogul Lucious Lyon (Oscar® Nominee Terrence Howard*) is diagnosed with a potentially fatal disease, he must choose which of his three sons will succeed him at the legendary Empire Entertainment. The game changes when his ex-wife Cookie (Oscar® Nominee Taraji P. Henson**) returns from prison where she’s been for almost two decades. Brash and fearless, she sees herself as the sacrificial lamb who built an empire with Lucious and then took the fall for running the drugs that financed Lucious’ early career. As the Lyons slug it out, a battle begins that will either cause the family’s destruction or redemption.

Have you been watching the show, Empire? Let me just say if you're looking for a show with lots of drama, music and a good looking cast, this is the show with you. After a medical diagnosis, Lucious Lyon, CEO of Empire Entertainment must decide which of his three sons will take over his business for him when he no longer can. Not only does he has this going on, but his ex-wife Cookie shows up to claim half of Empire and the drama just keeps unfolding.

I was a bit behind on the phenomenon that is Empire and kept hearing my sisters talk about the show, so I was pretty excited I got a chance to catch up by watching season one. This show is amazing and keeps getting better. With secrets and lies coming up left and right, this show will keep you on your toes and entertained and wanting more and more. Season two started a few weeks ago and it's just as good as season one.

If you've enjoyed this show as much as I have, then this is a must have with eleven uncut music performances and bonus feature with the cast and crew. Empire Season One is now out on both DVD and blu-ray in stores.

Adventure Time: The Enchiridion DVD Review

The Enchiridion is an ancient book with codes of conduct, guidelines, and other helpful information for heroes. Watch our hero’s Finn and Jake unlock the secrets in Adventure Time: The Enchiridion! The 10th volume release comes packed with 16 full length episodes from the hit-series Adventure Time.

My son is a huge fan of the show, Adventure Time. So when we received The Enchiridion, he was really excited to watch it from beginning to end and he did. He got to have one of his best friends sleep over and they watched the entire DVD from beginning to end. All I heard was laughter coming from the room where the boys were. After they were done they told me they thought all of the episodes were pretty awesome and they wish they could go on an adventure as well.

Definitely a great DVD to have for anyone that's a fan of the television series. With 16 episodes and over two hours, you'll enjoy this latest DVD installment. Now available, Adventure Time: The Enchiridion is retailed for $19.82.

Thirsty Thursday: Fireball Apple Cider

Fall is finally here. This has got to be my favorite season of them all. Leaves changing, nice cozy sweater weather, bon fires and pumpkin spice everything, lol.

I haven't shared a Thirsty Thursday drink in a while and I thought what better way to start up again, especially since it's the first day of October. This is the month that my house smells like pumpkin or apple, the month where my family and I watch our favorite classic family Halloween movies and make our Monster Munch and Monster Cookies.

Today I'm going to be sharing a spiked apple cider drink using Fireball. Have you guys ever had Fireball before? It reminds me of the Hot Tamales candy I use to eat growing up or the Aftershock alcohol that was from the 90's. Fireball is a hot and cool cinnamon liqueur that taste so good. It's perfect to have around this time of year. Mixing it with apple cider is my favorite way to drink it. It's easy to make and is a perfect adult drink to kick start Fall. This would be great to drink at a bon fire or by the fireplace. You can drink it over ice or warm. I prefer it warm, it keeps me nice and toasty.

What's your favorite Fall drink?  

Serves: 1

2 ounces Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey
3 ounces apple cider

Directions: Pour in the Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey and top with warm apple cider. Stir until mixed well. Drink and enjoy.

To serve cold, add ice in cup before liquids and don't heat up your cider. Stir, drink and enjoy.
