Father's Day Gift Guide - THE VIETNAM WAR DVD




Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, “THE VIETNAM WAR” tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides -- Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam. The series includes rarely seen, digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th Century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, and secret audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations. “THE VIETNAM WAR” features more than 100 iconic musical recordings from greatest artists of the era, and haunting original music from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross as well as the Silk Road Ensemble featuring Yo-Yo Ma.

THE VIETNAM WAR” is currently available on DVD and Blu-ray, has a run time of approximately 1080 minutes on 10 discs. The DVD SRP is $99.99 and the Blu-ray SRP is $129.99. There are over 100 minutes of extra bonus footage.  The film is also available as a digital download. 


My Thoughts

The Vietman War is a documentary series that gives us a look at what life was like for those who fought in this terrible war. The documentary was inspired by events, and thus gives us a truly personal feel for what these people endured and how their lives were changed by war. There are several people's voices that are heard through this documentary, from men on the front lines to witnesses to lived some of the horrors first hand.  You'll experience the heartbreaking that soliders faced, strategies that were used, and even get a glimpse in the eyes of the enemy we fought.  Most of all, you'll be touched by the loss of life and how it effected so many people.

This was a fantastic documentary and an educational look at a war that cost so many lives, and ended without a real resolution. There is great historical footage included as well as excellent reenactment scenes.  In addition to the documentary, the DVD also includes bonus features like information on the making of the documentary.  All in all, an excellent addition to any documentary collection that took ten years to create. It would make a great gift for any man in your life this Father's Day.

Anti-Cinderella Book Blast by Tawdra Kandle

It's been such a wonderful week of release fun since The Anti-Cinderella debuted on May 15th. What better way to celebrate than with a real royal wedding! How nice of Harry and Meghan to schedule their big day when they did. I really appreciated the boost and the nod. Did you get your copy yet of the book yet?

What reviewers are saying . . .

"This story made me have all the "feels"." "The characters are strong and the story flows smoothly. This is the first book of the series and I will be watching for the next one."

More news!

I'm thrilled to share that this book is only the beginning of the fun! There will be two more installments in the main Anti-Cinderella story: The Anti-Cinderella Takes London and The Anti-Cinderella Conquers the World. You can preorder the London book exclusively on iBooks . The preorder will go live on Amazon, Nook, Kobo and Google in the fall. And if you want to see the amazing cover, it'll be revealed later this summer on my Temptress group.

The Anti-Cinderella Takes London

Falling in love with a prince wasn't something I planned . . . When I reconnected with the first guy I ever kissed, I never dreamed I'd end up moving to England to be closer to him. But Nicky and I are in love, and living together was the next logical step. If I thought dating royalty was a tough gig when I was living in the USA, I'm learning that it's even more challenging now that I'm in London. Every move I make, every word I say, is under the microscope. Becoming part of Nicky's family while staying true to who I am isn't easy. Nicky makes everything worthwhile. The hours when we're alone together are paradise. And if the press and the pressure are the price I have to pay for him . . . I'll choose Nicky, every single time. After all, London's just another town. Right? Tawdra Kandle writes romance, in just about all its forms. She loves unlikely pairings, strong women, sexy guys, hot love scenes and just enough conflict to make it interesting. Her books include young adult and new adult paranormal romance, new adult and adult contemporary romance and adult paramystery romance. She lives in central Florida with a husband, kids, sweet pup and too many cats. And yeah, she rocks purple hair. You can follow Tawdra on Amazon to receive updates on her releases.

#WBSponsored Daphne & Velma Blu-ray Review & #Giveaway

Jeepers! Your favorite mystery solving teenagers are back in an all-new, live-action feature length movie!  Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Daphne & Velma on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD on May 22, 2018. The film stars Sarah Jeffery (Disney's "Descendants: Wicked World") and Sarah Gilman (ABC's “Last Man Standing”), and is produced by Ashley Tisdale and Jennifer Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Productions. Daphne & Velma will carry a suggested retail price of $19.98 for the DVD and $24.98 for the Blu-ray.
State of the art robots and high-tech gadgets are common sights at Ridge Valley High, an innovative center of learning for some of the brightest minds in the country, including new transfer student, the bright & optimistic Daphne Blake (Sarah Jeffery) who is excited to finally go to school with her online bestie, the whip-smart & analytical Velma Dinkley (Sarah Gilman). But not everything is as innocent as it seems as mysterious disappearances begin to plague the top-performing students on campus. Once cheery and full of life, kids now appear in a “zombiefied” state - lifeless and shells of themselves. Can Daphne and Velma learn to work together and save the students or will they become the next victims? Get ready for thrills and laughs as we follow the first adventures of Mystery Inc.’s fierce female duo.
Daphne and Velma, the smart and resourceful women of Scooby-Doo fame, come to life in this all-new mystery,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE, Vice President, TV Marketing, Family & Animation. “Young girls will be delighted to discover how these clever heroines come together for their very first mystery demonstrating that no mystery is too big for these “meddling” girls to solve!”

Ashley Tisdale (Young & Hungry), Jennifer Tisdale (Her Universe Fashion Show), Amy Kim (ConfessChosen), Jaime Burke (Cassandra French’s Finishing School, Quantum Break) and Suzi Yoonessi (Olive and Mochha: First Kiss) serve as producers, with Yoonessi also directing from a script written by Kyle Mack & Caitlin Meares.

My Thoughts
In Daphe and Velma, our favorite female crime stoppers are heading out on their own. This movie actually takes place before the girls team up with Fred, Shaggy, and Scooby. They two girls attend a high school for genius kids where technology has taken over and robots roam the halls. But soon some of the smartest kids in school start to disappear, and others act like mindless zombies. It's up to Velma and Daphe to figure out what's happening at their school and save their classmates from an uncertain fate.
This was a fun take on some classic characters. Daphe and Thelma always seemed to take a backseat to their male counterparts in other movies, but this time, they are the stars. It was nice to see them taking charge of the case. They make a great team. My kids loved the story and though it is a little predictable, it's fun for kids. It's a great movie to watch on family movie night. Warner Bros. sent this video to me for free so I could review it,but I would definitely have checked it out anyway. You can grab a copy in stores now or online at Amazon.
