I am sharing this information as a member of the Fox Home ENT Insiders Blogging Program. I received a free blu-ray of this movie. Any and all opinions expressed in this post are my own.

Earth To Echo on Blu-ray and DVD October 21st


Earth to Echo is a tale told through the eyes of Tuck, Munch and Alex, a trio of pals who make an out-of-this-world discovery. The best friends venture out of their neighborhood to find the true meaning of friendship. After receiving signals on their phones, they meet Echo, a small, but amazingly energetic, alien trying to make his way back to his home planet. As they race to help their new friend, the boys will discover that little Echo has touched their hearts in unexpected ways and changed their lives forever. 

To prepare you for this adventurous, exciting and heart warming film, we have compiled a list of the best ways to spend time with your friends- outside and away from your cell phones!

Earthly adventures with Echo


1. Pick Up Games 
There is nothing like starting a sports pickup game with all your neighborhood friends. Between sitting in class all day and coming home to do homework, a quick game, whether it is hockey, baseball, basketball or soccer, will let you use up some of that energy you’ve been storing! Not only this, but this is an awesome way to make new friends.


2. Bike Rides 
With your parents permission of course, take a cruise around the neighborhood with your friends! Also, make sure you wear a helmet. You can use your imagination and make fun adventures out of your journey!


3. Hide N’ Seek 
 A neighborhood game of Hide N’ Seek is the ultimate outside activity. With permission from your parents, and of course, using the buddy system when it comes to hiding, Hide N’ Seek is sure to be an awesome time.


4. Backyard Campout 
Ask your mom and dad to set up a backyard camp out for you and your friends! Start by setting up a tent and marking your territory with your sleeping bag! You can spend the night telling scary stories and eating S’mores!



5. Chalk 
The most underrated outside activity has to be chalk! It is so much fun to create fun pictures and even games with all your friends. You can play hopscotch or tic-tac-toe or use your imagination to draw wonderful pictures!

Movie Trailer Tuesday - Austenland

Welcome to "Movie Trailer Tuesday - my weekly blog feature where I share movie/dvd recommendations by posting a quick blurb and movie trailer for you to check out.

Have you watched any good movies recently? Feel free to share in the comments below...


blog


Okay...I will say up front that this movie is not for everyone. It's kinda silly and goofy but I loved it and laughed out loud. A lot.

Having said that, there's no way my husband would've made it through 10 minutes of this movie (he probably couldn't even tell you who "Jane Austen" is so there ya go). If you don't know who Jane Austen is, then you might not appreciate this movie, either. If you are a fan of Jane Austen or of historical romance/comedy, then you will probably get a kick out of Austenland.

Jane Hayes is young and single and a HUGE fan of the classic novelist, Jane Austen. To say that she is a fan might be a bit of an understatement. She is obsessed with all things Jane Austen and her obsession gets in the way of any normal romantic relationship. When she decides to go on an authentic, immersive Jane Austen vacation experience, Jane is sure she will find the kind of romance that she has always wanted. But, after spending a little time in the Jane Austen era, she begins to rethink her entire attitude toward romance.

If you don't take Austenland too seriously, you will find that it is charming, light-hearted, and funny. It is a sweet story with lots of hilarious characters that will keep you laughing.

Rated PG-13 for some suggestive content and innuendo.
