A League Of Their Own Celebrates 25th Anniversary

A League Of Their Own Celebrates 25th Anniversary

I remember the first time my husband said to my now 10 year old “there is no crying in baseball”. Our  son then 7 looked at him confused shrugged his shoulders and walked away. We then looked at each other and laughed knowing one d,y  A League Of Their Own would make a family movie night.  Fast forward 3 years , after a day on 4 yes 4 different ball fields our family pizza movie night featured A League Of Their Own 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray.

On April 18th Sony Pictures released A League Of Their Own 25th Anniversary Edition on Blu-Ray. Featuring an all new bonus featurette “Bentonville, Baseball & The Enduring Legacy of A League Of Their Own.” An unforgettable visit to the annual softball game at the Bentonville Film Festival.  The Blue-Ray also includes hilarious and insightful special features, including 15 deleted scenes , a documentary with the cast and filmmaker interviews.

About the Movie:

Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this hilarious and beloved comedy, starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna. With baseball lineups and locker rooms empty during World War II, the newly founded All American Girls Baseball League (AAGPBL). The AAGPBL brought talented women to the big leagues and brought fans to the stands. The indomitable Dottie Hinson (Davis) finds herself leading a rag tag group of players who end up winning over the heart of their has been coach Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks). Lori Petty , Rosie O’Donnell and Jon Lovitz round out the all star roster. Based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed the trail for generations of athletes.

As we were watching the film whose run time is 128 minutes our son had his eyes glued to the Television. He asked lots of questions about the AAGPBL , World War II and letting us know Rosie O’Donnell is hysterical.  At one point in the movie we all started to laugh.  He then said to us OHHHH that’s where it comes from! Yes you guessed it , we had gotten to that famous “There is no crying in baseball ” line.

Dark Shadows DVD Giveaway and Blog App

Do you love Johnny Depp? Well here is your chance to see him back in action on the big screen with a DVD Giveaway. Warner Brothers Pictures has just announced that on October 2nd 2012 that Dark Shadows will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray and there is a  Dark Shadows Blog App so you can check your Dark Shadows knowledge or learn your own creep factor before it’s release.

From the incredible mind of Tim Burton comes the hit film Dark Shadows, based on the classic television series!  Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) has been trapped for two centuries by an evil witch (Eva Green) who just happens to be an ex lover.  Barnabas now has to struggle with the ever changing 1970s and save his families business!  With an all star cast that includes Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller and more, Dark Shadows will be sure to whet your appetite for fun.

Want to own a copy of your own? Just answer the Barnabas Terrific Trivia or Take the Are You Creepy Enough Quiz on the Dark Shadows Blog App and post your results below and Main Street Mama will pick one winner on October 9th at 11:59pm

Creepy Conservative is who I am … You most definitely have a tendency to flirt with evil but are far from truly wicked. Honestly…the necessity to suck the blood of the living is not high on your priority list, but you envision being a vampire would have its perks. You enjoy spending life on the lighter side and that’s perfectly fine…and although creepy might not be your first name, it certainly is your middle name! BAM!

I was not surprised by my results, will you be with yours?  I look forward to your review of Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp after the release on October 2nd 2012 and learning your Creepy Enough Quiz Results.
