I don’t recall seeing the first Alvin & the Chipmunks live(ish?) action movie, but I have watched the cartoon from time to time.  And who hasn’t heard the Chipmunks Christmas song, right?

Alvin & the Chipmunks: Road Chip movie review

I’m normally up for watching just about anything, though, so when our friends at Entenmann’s Little Bites offered to provide us with a digital download code for Alvin & the Chipmunks: Road Chip I was definitely game.  Even better, they were sending a couple boxes of Entenmann’s Little Bites Chocolate Chip-Munk Muffins for us to enjoy while we watched.

Disney Planes Fire and Rescue flew into theaters yesterday.  We had been promising Bubbles for weeks that we would go to see it the day it opened.  There was a 2:30 p.m. non-3D matinee, and so we packed up some snacks and headed to the theater.

Disney Planes Fire and Rescue Review: Dusty, Blade Ranger, Dipper, and Windlifter

Thank you to Disney for providing us with a copy of Phineas and Ferb Mission Marvel in order to facilitate my review.  All words and opinions are 100% my own.

Phineas and Ferb Mission Marvel DVD #Review #Disney #Marvel

And that’s exactly what has happened in the new DVD Phineas and Ferb Mission Marvel.  Some of the Marvel super heroes suddenly find themselves without their powers, and after calculating the source of the beam that hit them, they find the source to be Danville.  Apparently Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s latest scheme has had an unintended consequence and Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Hulk find themselves teaming up with Phineas and Ferb to try and get their powers back.
