New Year's Resolution Blog Carnival - DVDs Giveaway

Medical Transcription Source

Hauling & Trucking, Medical Transcription Source and Makobi Scribe Present New Year’s Resolution Blog Carnival. My New Year's Resolution is to lose a few pounds and keep it off.  It seems I do fairly well in the spring and summer, but gain all my weight back in the winter.  I'm like a bear in hibernation.  All I want to do in winter is eat and sleep.  I'm not going to let the vicious cycle repeat itself this year. 

For the giveaway I am offering three new DVDs from Vivendi Entertainment.  Giveaway is open to residents fo the USA and one winner will receive all three DVDs.  Enter on the Rafflecopter form below.


A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventures – Release Date: 1/3

Born on a Baja, California beach in 1959, new hatchling Sammy must do what his fellow newborn sea turtles are doing: race across the beach to the ocean before a seagull or crab captures them. Thus begins Sammy’s incredible fifty-year ocean journey. Along the way he meets his best friend, a fellow turtle named Ray, and overcomes obstacles both natural and man-made while trying to fulfill his dream of travelling around the world. Throughout his travels, Sammy never forgets about Shelly – the turtle he saved on his first day and loves passionately from afar. Based on the actual course of a sea turtle’s life, this story of one creature’s breathtaking journey is a thrilling voyage the whole family will enjoy.

My Review:

Children will fall in love with Sammy and his friends as they conquer obstacles while racing to reach the ocean.  It's a kid-friendly movie that entertains and teaches about friendship, struggles, hope, and environmental awareness. 


The Garfield Show: Dinosaurs and Other Animal Adventures – Release Date: 1/10

Everyone’s favorite cat is at it again! Join this larger than life feline and his animal friends as they embark on a series of adventures from digging up dinosaur bones, working with farm animals and discovering life under the sea. No stone is left unturned as Garfield takes us through the history of dogs, attends a pet show and even prepares to eat a pet goldfish! Being part of the animal kingdom has never been any more exciting!

My Review:

I grew up watching Garfield in older cartoon animation and recall it being a favorite. Even with its CGI animation, Garfield is still a lovable show with humor and mischief. Watching Garfield, Jon, Odie, and the other characters in The Garfield Show: Dinosaurs and Other Animal Adventures is a welcoming trip down memory lane for myself and clean, fun entertainment for my kids. The different episodes on this DVD feature Garfield and his friends as they deal with all things animal-related.


A Mile In His Shoes – Release Date: 1/10

Only a miracle can help baseball coach Arthur “Murph” Murphy (Dean Cain) and his losing minor league baseball team. As Murph sets out to recruit new talent, he stumbles upon Mickey (Luke Schroder), a young farmer with an incredible pitcher’s arm. However, Mickey’s parents are reluctant in allowing him to join the team because he has Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism. Murph convinces Mickey’s parents that life in the minor league will benefit their unique son, but he doesn’t realize just how much his new recruit will help the team’s game and, more importantly, their spirit. Based on a true story, A Mile in His Shoes is an inspirational film that celebrates faith, determination and the power of friendship.

My Review:

You don't have to be a baseball fan to appreciate this movie.  Mickey Tussler, a teen with autism, is set apart from others due to his behaviors.  With help from baseball Manager, Arthur "Murph" Murphy, Mickey shows others the meaning of compassion and inspiration.  There are some religious undertones in the story, but they're not pushy.  I shed a few tears, felt warmness in my heart, and rooted for the underdog while watching this movie.
