New Trailer Just Released For Strange Magic

strange magic new

Oh yes!  We are finally getting a peak at what Strange Magic is going to be all about, well, *some* about :D  I can already see that my 15 year old is going to have a new favorite movie and that is AWESOME!  Strange Magic looks like so much fun with whimsy and comedy around every corner.  What a great way to start off 2015, with fun and magic!

From Touchstone Pictures:

“Strange Magic,” a new animated film from Lucasfilm Ltd., is a madcap fairy tale musical inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Popular songs from the past six decades help tell the tale of a colorful cast of goblins, elves, fairies and imps, and their hilarious misadventures sparked by the battle over a powerful potion. Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light & Magic bring to life the fanciful forest turned upside down with world-class animation and visual effects. Directed by Gary Rydstrom (“Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation,” “Lifted”) from a story by George Lucas, “Strange Magic” will be released by Touchstone Pictures on Jan. 23, 2015

Take A Look At The LG OLED TV At Best Buy #OLEDatBestBuy

Take A Look At The LG OLED TV At Best Buy

Acadiana’s Thrifty Mom has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

lg tv

Are you as excited about the Black Friday deals coming up as I am?  Well, as usual, Best Buy will have the best electronics deals around.  This year, they will have amazing deals on LG OLED TV‘s.  If you keep up with the television scene, you probably already know what an LG OLED TV is.  If not, then I will help you out a bit.

What is OLED TV?  “The stunning design of LG OLED TV is only 0.17″ thick at its thinnest point. Picture quality is spectacular, with Infinite Contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG’s exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors.”

Infinite Contrast:  “OLED self-lighting pixels are able to switch on and off individually, offering the first infinite contrast ratio. Contrast ratio measures the range from the brightest whites on the screen to the darkest blacks. These deep blacks seem to melt away, for a greater sense of realism and depth on all content. Higher is better, and infinite has been impossible… until now.”

Pencil Thin:  LG’s remarkably thin OLED TV opens up a whole new possibility of style and design with a depth of only 0.17″ at its thinnest point, the same thickness as a pencil. The brilliant technology of OLED enables a simpler internal structure than conventional displays. With just two layers, the LG OLED TV is unbelievably lightweight and wafer-thin.

Curved Screen:  Every aspect of LG OLED TV is designed to enhance your viewing pleasure. The curve of the screen is designed so that your eyes are equally distant from all parts of the screen when sitting in front of the TV, providing a natural and immersive viewing experience. It’s an artful evolution of the traditional flat screen, designed for maximum impact.

You can find out more about the LG OLED TV over at Best Buy.  This is definitely going to be one of those “camp out the night before” items on Black Friday.  Right now, Best Buy’s everyday price of $3499.99 (save $500).  I’m going to be on the lookout  for a coupon or sale and will share it with all of you when it comes out.

Disney Reveals Cinderella #Cinderella

Disney Reveals Cinderella

cinderella payoff poster

Oh my goodness!  My kids and I watched this trailer and I got chills.  Cinderella is going to be AMAZING!  What a majestic story and it looks like Disney is going to do a perfect job of telling it.  I didn’t even know how much I love Cinderella until I watched this trailer.  You have to watch it and be sure to let me know what you think.  March 13, 2015, cannot come soon enough!

cinderella coach

From Disney:  The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham Carter) steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella’s life forever.  CINDERELLA opens in theaters March 13, 2015!
