Family Summer Films from Phase 4 (1 of 3)


night-at-the-moviesSummer means outdoor playtime, lazy days at the beach/pool and lots of backyard barbeques. But what do you do when rainy days roll around?
Don’t fret! Phase 4 films is releasing eight new family-friendly films that are sure to keep kids entertained rain or shine! All films will be easily accessible to rent at Redbox locations and for purchase at retailers nationwide starting this summer.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to share with you these new films. As moms of toddlers know new movies are manna from heaven after watching the same movie over, and over, and over, and over 100x. Are you starting to get a mental picture here? Although the first half of our summer was busy it has started to slow a bit, add some rain and we have been stuck indoors for over a week. So when our package came with these movies everyone was excited. This will be a 3 post series starting with the June release movies below and look out for posts 2 and 3. You wont want to miss these great movies.

  • 7157dxO1HGL._AA1297_Description: Dreamzone has been a peaceful and a magical kingdom under the rule of King Maximus. That’s about to change when he is captured and imprisoned by his evil brother Dreadmis. When he unleashes his vengeance upon the kingdom, the King’s daughter, courageous Princess Kiara must conquer evil and restore harmony in Dreamzone. Together with her best friend Super Kloud, they embark on a magical journey to protect their Kingdom and bring the rightful owner back to the throne.
  • Kiara The Brave has an 80 minute run time and is rated PG.
  • Special Features: Slide Show, Trailer, and Downloadable Activity Kit

Our Thoughts: My daughter wanted to watch this movie first but after a few minutes the children quickly became bored and moved on. DO NOT confuse this with the Disney Pixar movie BRAVE. you will be setting your self up for disappointment. Also if you are looking for a movie with a female heroine this is not it, the title is misleading and Kiara is only in 3-4 scenes.  I really don’t have anything good to say about this movie and I doubt it will become one of our favorites.

Belka and Strelka are a circus dog and a rough and tumble stray who embark on an out of this world adventure, humble becoming the world’s most famous canine cosmonauts.

Our Thoughts: My son was thrilled with this movie Dogs + Space = HEAVEN!! Our whole family loved this film and we found ourselves laughing along with all the antics. The movie also has it's occasional teary moments, but most of the movie is comical and fun. I really liked that it was based off a true story and my children got to learn a hidden history lesson.
