The global cultural phenomenon of “Black Panther” has dominated the box office charts emerging as the third biggest movie of all time domestically with over $665 million – the first film in eight years to spend five weeks at No. 1 – and rising to the global top 10 of all time with over $1.3 billion. In the acclaimed film, T’Challa returns home to the hidden high-tech African nation of Wakanda to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king, following the death of his father. But when a man named Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) appears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he’s drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Pitted against his own family, the king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and embrace his future as an Avenger.

The film features a fierce group of Wakandan women, including Nakia (Academy Award® winner Lupita Nyong’o), a War Dog and Wakandan spy; Shuri (Letitia Wright), T’Challa’s little sister and tech wizard; and the Dora Milaje, the all-female Wakandan Special Forces led by Okoye (Danai Gurira). They team up with reluctant ally CIA agent Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) to help T’Challa defend Wakanda against the forces threatening to destroy it. The extraordinary ensemble cast of “Black Panther” also includes veteran actors such as Academy Award® nominee Angela Bassett as Ramonda, T’Challa and Shuri’s mother; Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker as Zuri, the spiritual leader of Wakanda; and Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, an illegal arms dealer; and standout performances by Academy Award® nominee Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Royal Counsel to T’Challa; Winston Duke as M’Baku, the formidable leader of the Jabari tribe; and Emmy® Award-winner Sterling K. Brown as N’Jobu, a Wakandan War Dog.

The action in “Black Panther” is intensified through a musical score by GRAMMY®-nominated composer Ludwig Göransson and soundtrack curated and produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning global superstar Kendrick Lamar and Billboard Magazine’s Executive of the Year Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith. “Black Panther: The Album” topped the Billboard 200 chart for five consecutive weeks and the end-credit track, “All The Stars,” featuring Lamar and SZA, spent nine weeks in the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

    Forever My Girl is an Adorable Romance

    Forever My Girl comes to Blu-Ray and DVD April 24 from Lionsgate. This heartwarming Romance follows a country Music Superstar as he finds himself torn between his career and the one he loves. Forever My Girl is based on the first book of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling series – The Beaumont, by Heidi McLaughlin.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Forever My Girl follows Liam, a pastor’s son, after he chooses his career of being a Country Singer Star over his soon to be wife. In other words, he left her at the alter to go on tour. Fast forward to eight years later, and we see a successful Liam with tons of fans, all the girls he could want, and a lot of money. One may think he has it all, but they would be wrong. After a weird cellphone accident, we quickly learn he still has feelings for his one true love.

    After Liam arrives back in his home town, he discovers that his “true love” still has feelings for him as well. Only this time, Liam finds an unexpected treasure…he has a 7 year old daughter. The title, Forever My Girl, never really tells the audience which person Liam is calling his forever girl, but after watching the movie, I can say I think it is both.

    Forever My Girl is labeled as Romance but I think it is more about the relationship between a father and a daughter. The amount of romance is light and subtle. It is cute and I found myself rooting for the time that they could be together forever. However, there is an even greater story as Liam attempts to connect with his daughter. It is adorable to watch as Liam and Billy learn each others quirks, come out of their shells, and discover the love between a father and a daughter. Even the ending focuses more on the father/daughter duo than the romance between the father and mother. I won’t spoil anything but make sure to watch to the end because this movie has a WIN ending.

    Puppy Dog Pals is Adorably Paw-Some!

    5, 4, 3, 2, 1…We’re going on a Mission! Barking on to DVD April 10th is Disney Juniors Cutest TV show Puppy Dog Pals. While their owner, Bob, is away, These two pugs, Rolly and Bingo, set off on adventures that span the globe. With the help from their friends their adventures are a great success.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The Puppy Dog Pals DVD will feature 12 episodes of this paws-itively awesome cartoon. They include:

    1. Hawaii Pug-Oh
    2. A.R.F
    3. The French Toast Connection
    4. Take Me Out to the Pug Game
    5. A Pyramid Scheme
    6. Special Delivery
    7. The Go-Long Retriever
    8. Pot O’Pugs
    9. Design a Dog
    10. Ice, Ice, Puggy
    11. Hissy’s Big Day
    12. Go, Dog. Go!

    I consider Puppy Dog Pals to be one of the cutest Disney Junior shows out there. Of course it helps that I absolutely adore pugs. They are so cute with their smashed faces and hilarious demeanor. However, that is not the only reason I love Puppy Dog Pals. After watching these 12 episodes I found that not only does this cartoon have an adorable factor of 10, but it has great morals and guidance as well.

    Many cartoons have a moral compass that helps the characters face their missions/adventures and come out on top by doing what is right. Rolly and Bingo have similar missions in Puppy Dog Pals as they learn and remember what is most important. In “Hawaii Pug-Oh” Rolly and Bingo hear that Bob wants to put his toes in the sand and relax. So, thinking of their Owner, they pack up and head to Hawaii to bring back the finest sand. Of course, it was hard to keep their mind on Bob with all the sand, surf and amazing crabs to chase, but they eventually pull it off and get Bob what he wanted. Their mission was to do something nice for some one else. In my book that is a great message for kids and adults to hear and absorb.

    There is also a lot of guidance to help kids grow. in A.R.F. we learn that a house needs to remain clean so that there is more time to play and have fun. However, that can be easier said then done. When Bob’s new invention A.R.F. starts chasing Hissy to clean up a mess left by the pug brothers, Hissy makes a mess of her own as she runs from the scary machine. Since A.R.F. is only programmed to clean up after the pugs, it is up to Rolly and Bingo to clean the mess before Bob gets home so that Bob would have time to play. As Bingo states, Cleaning might be work, but it can also be fun.

    Puppy Dog Pals gets a Five star from me with the Adorable Factor and the guidance. Kids will have watching this cartoon as they laugh and join Rolly and Bingo in their fun adventures.

    In anticipation of Puppy Dog Pals coming to DVD, Disney has released several printables the whole family can enjoy as they wait for the DVD release.Help Rolly in a Maze, color, play a game of Bingo, spot the differences and more in the free activities listed below.
