Shout! Factory’s ‘Legally Blonde Collection’ Will Get A Positive Verdict From The Franchise’s Most Devoted Fans

Courtesy: Shout! Factory

Almost two decades ago, actress Reese Witherspoon made her mark on the movie industry when she starred in MGM’s female-fronted comedy Legally Blonde.  Two years later, it was followed by the sequel Legally Blonde: Red, White & Blonde.  Now early next year, the franchise is allegedly set to see another installment.  As audiences wait and see if that movie actually happens, Shout! Factory has a collection available now featuring the first two Legally Blonde movies on Blu-ray.  This latest collection is a work that the franchise’s most devoted fans will appreciate.  That is due in part to the set’s bonus content, which will be addressed shortly.  The set’s packaging plays its own part in the collection’s presentation.  Its average price point rounds out its most important elements.  Each item noted is important in its own way to the whole of this presentation.  All things considered, they make Shout! Factory’s Legally Blonde Collection appealing for the most devoted fans of this franchise and of Reese Witherspoon.

Shout! Factory’s recently released Legally Blonde Collection, released Feb. 26 on Blu-ray, is a presentation that the most devoted fans of this franchise and of Reese Witherspoon will appreciate.  That is due in part to the collection’s bonus content.  Much of the content featured in the collection was carried over from previous releases of the movies, including the audio commentaries  The feature-length commentary in the franchise’s first flick offers some of the most engaging and entertaining content.  Viewers learn through this commentary, items, such as its director, Robert Luketic was actually a lawyer and member of the New York State Bar before making a career change.  That might account for his interest in the movie, even though he was not one of the movie’s writing staff members.  Staying on that note, it is also revealed that the movie’s writing team of Karen McCullah and Kirsten Smith were on set throughout much of the movie’s principal photography to make sure every joke and every line worked.  It shows, too in watching the movie sans commentary.  That revelation comes late in the movie’s run along with the revelation that the jail scenes were shot in a real jail and that said facility was allegedly haunted and was where the infamous “Manson Girls” were detained.  Witherspoon herself even takes time to discuss how she developed her persona for Elle at various points in the commentary.  She talks about developing Elle’s walk, her body language and even the inflection in her voice.  That is interesting to learn.  This is just some of the information revealed in this one of two feature-length commentaries featured in this collection.  There are also mentions of the homage to the classic 1967 Dustin Hoffman movie The Graduate and the casting director’s tie to another female-fronted flick in Bring It On.

The audio commentary featured in Legally Blonde 2 offers its own share of interest for viewers thanks to cast members  Coolidge, Jessica Cauffiel and Alanna Ubach.  The trio reveals throughout the movie, items, such as Witherspoon was actually pregnant in reality during the filming of the movie.  The very first scene, the trio reveals, was intentionally set up to reveal her growing baby bump.  At another point, the group points out Elle’s endless kindness toward others despite their lack of kindness toward her.  That in itself makes for an interesting starting point for discussions about that personality trait in the real world.  The rest of the movie is a bit of a Mystery Science Theater 3000 type presentation from the women more than anything informational.  Of course considering that the movie’s story is essentially a rehashing of the first movie’s story, just in a different setting, it would be understandable that there is not much informational to offer.  That aside, it still offers its own entertainment by and large.

The bonus commentaries featured with the Legally Blonde Collection are just a portion of what makes the two-disc set appealing for the franchise’s most devoted audience base.  The set’s packaging plays its own part to its whole.  As noted, this set is a two-disc set.  Each disc is placed in its own spot inside the case, allowing the case to be a standard-size Blu-ray case.  This in turn, allows for space-saving on viewers’ DVD and/or BD racks.  It also protects the discs from each other in terms of scratching.  To that end, the packaging for the set was done right, another positive to the set.  It still is not the last of the most important elements to discuss in examining the set.  Its average price point rounds out its most important elements.

The average price point of the Legally Blonde Collection is $16.73.  That price is obtained by averaging prices at Amazon, Walmart, Target, Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Books-A-Million and Shout! Factory’s own store.  Best Buy was the only major retailer not listing the collection at the time of this review’s posting.  While Shout! Factory’s listing of $15.99 is not the least expensive of the set’s listings, it also is not the most expensive.  It is also below that average line.  The most expensive of the set’s listing is $19.99 (at Books-a-Million and Barnes & Noble Booksellers).  The least expensive of the set’s listing is $14.12 (at Amazon and Walmart).  For lack of better wording, whether consumers choose Shout! Factory’s store or those of Walmart and Amazon – or even Target, which lists the set at $16.19 – they can by and large purchase the set at less than $20.  Considering that the average price of so many Blu-rays today can be anywhere from $20-$25 (or more in some cases) that shows that this collection is affordable for the noted devotees of the Legally Blonde franchise and of Witherspoon.  That positive mark joins with the positives in the set’s full-length audio commentaries and the other bonuses, and the set’s basic packaging, to make the set in whole a welcome addition to the libraries of any of the noted viewers.

Shout! Factory’s recently released Legally Blonde Collection is a positive addition to the home libraries of the most devoted fans of the noted cinema franchise and of Reese Witherspoon.  That is proven in large part through the bonus content that is featured with the collection.  There are some new bonuses and some carry-overs that collectively offer the noted viewers plenty of engagement and entertainment.  The set’s basic packaging saves space and protects the set’s two discs from being scratched.  The average price point of less than $20 makes the set appealing for the noted viewers in its own way.  Each item does its own part to make this collection appealing for audiences.  All things considered, they make the set a presentation that will receive a positive verdict from the franchise’s most devoted fans.  It is available now.  More information on this and other titles from Shout! Factory is available online now at:

Denm’s New EP Will Give Reggae, Ska Fans “Endless” Enjoyment

Courtesy: Rock Mafia

Summer is inching closer to its end, and fall will soon be here.  While the warm weather will soon give way to falling temperatures and leaves, it does not mean that the summer mindset necessarily has to come to an end. Indie reggae/pop performer Denm (yes, that’s how his stage name is spelled) makes that clear with his new EP Endless Summer.  Released Sept. 6, the six-song EP is a work that will appeal to fans of similar acts, such as 311, Jack Johnson and The Dirty Heads with its musical arrangements and even its lyrical content.  One of the EP’s most notable entries that serves to support that statement is its opener, ‘Life’s Too Short.’  It will be discussed shortly.  The EP’s second song, ‘My Wave’ is another of the entries that supports the noted statement.  ‘Find Your Own,’ the EP’s closer is yet another of the songs that shows the appeal of Endless Summer to fans of the noted acts.  When it is considered alongside the EP’s first two tracks and its other three songs, the whole of the EP proves itself just as enjoyable for reggae and modern rock-reggae hybrid sounds as works from Denm’s more well-known counterparts and a work that will stay hot for the noted audiences throughout the cold, winter months of the year.

Indie-reggae act Denm’s new EP Endless Summer is a work that is certain to get endless praise from fans of his more well-known counterparts in the mainstream.  That is proven in part through the record’s opener ‘Life’s Too Short.’  Denm stated about the song during an interview, “When I wrote ‘Life’s Too Short,’ I had no money, nothing was working, and it seemed like I’d hit the final wall.  So as a form of therapy, I wrote a song about how life is too short – how it all flies by so fast I mean, I remember being a little kid like it was yesterday, and now I’m an adult just like that.  I’d been so focused on trying to make it, that I wasn’t even enjoying my life, so I decided to try and change my mindset.  I let go.  I told myself that I was going to be alright.  That whatever will be, will be.  That mindset is illustrated quite well both musically and lyrically here.  The song’s musical arrangement is reminiscent not only of the previously noted counterparts, but also to the likes of Flipsyde with its electronics and hip-hop vibe.  It is easily a radio ready composition that would fit without problem, into any Top 40 programmer’s list.  The song’s lyrical content does an equally applause-worthy job of illustrating Denm’s thoughts.

He sings in the song’s lead verse, “If all we are is all we get/Then I’m gonna live with no regret/Life’s too short to stress out/Life’s too short/I’ve watched my old man cry/Don’t you live your life like mine/Life’s too short to stress out/Life’s too short.”  He continues in the song’s second verse, “I won’t lie/I can’t believe I made it this far/It’s a rough life/Everybody got their own scars/Some people get more, some people get less/We’re all blessed/And I know we ain’t got a lot/But I know we’re okay/If we love what we got/’Cause life’s too short to stress out/Life’s too short/If all we are is all we get/Then I’m gonna live with no regret/Life’s too short to stress out/Life’s too short.”  He adds in the song’s third and final verse, “Time flies/Ain’t nobody get a free ride/It’s alright/Might get it in the next life/Some people get more, some people get less, but we’re all blessed/I don’t know if I’m right/I just write with my heart/I just write with the vibe/’Cause life’s too short to stress out/Life’s too short.”  Denm could not be more right with this message.  Life is too short.  Yes, there are problems, as he notes, but we have to make the best of each day.  This is not the first time that any artist of any type has presented such a message.  Even with that in mind, it is no less welcome here than in any previous case from those other acts.  It couples with the song’s gentle, mid-tempo, guitar-driven arrangement to make the song even more appealing and that much stronger of a start for this record.  Keeping all of this in mind, this song is just one of the EP’s most notable entries.  The record’s second song, ‘My Wave’ is another of its most notable works.

‘My Wave’ is so notable in part because of its arrangement, which sounds like a hybrid of so many works from Jack Johnson and 311.  An argument can even be made for an inclusion of Dirty Heads in that list.  It is a free, flowing arrangement that will also widely appeal to nu-reggae fans across the board, to that end.  It is just one part of the song’s notability.  Its lyrical content adds to its interest, too.

Denm notes in the song’s lead verse. “Put the chair out on my front lawn/Let the party go on/’Cause I could sit here all day long/’Cause I got nothing going on/I got nothing going on/I just wanna have some fun/Drink a beer in the sun/And maybe have another one/’Cause I got nothing going on.”  He continues in the song’s second verse, “Pass me another cold one…as the night comes under the setting sun/Come on let me pull you closer/Feel the sun on your shoulder/Let me, baby, what I told you/Is summer gonna last forever.”  Simply put, this is a laid back work whose lyrical content puts right out there, that same laid back message.  It is a song that celebrates taking life easy, continuing the message in the EP’s opener.  It is encouraging listeners to appreciate and make the most of every day. This is, again, something that every person needs to hear.  To that end, this positive message and its equally uplifting musical arrangement companion make the song another positive addition to the EP.  It is just one more of the EP’s most notable entries.  The EP’s closer, ‘Find Your Way’ is one more example of what makes Endless Summer an appealing work for reggae (and nu-reggae) fans alike.

‘Find Your Way’ is perhaps the EP’s most notable work because it goes more a ska route than a reggae or even nu-reggae route in its arrangement.  Specifically speaking, the song’s arrangement lends itself to comparisons to work from Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Reel Big Fish and The Aquabats.  What’s really interesting about the arrangement is that while it boasts all the horns and familiar guitar licks, it also adds some electronic elements throughout whose addition is so subtle that it actually adds so much to the song.  Of course for those who might not know, ska is an offshoot of reggae so to that end, the arrangement still stays true to the rest of the EP’s sound, just in its own, unique fashion.  It is just one part of what makes the song stand out.  The song’s lyrical content is just as important to discuss as its musical arrangement.

Denm sings in the song’s lead verse of a father figure leaving his family and the impact that it has.  He sings here, “Daddy was a young boy/He never tried to do no harm/But he always found a way/Daddy was a young man/Violent/Had a mean streak/Then he up and ran away/What’s a boy to do/When he has/No one to look to/You gotta find your own way.”  He continues in the song’s second verse talking about the child’s mother, singing “Girl, I was in junior high/When daddy died/Then she dyed her hair black/And her mom did her best to save her life/Oh, sweet Caroline/What’s a girl to do/When she has no one to look to/You gotta find your own way.”  The words themselves carry a certain fire and pain that can only be fully understood and appreciated in hearing them for one’s self.  Hearing Denm’s delivery of the words, they translate so strongly in their emotion.  The same applies to the fire in the song’s musical arrangement.  The arrangement works with the song’s lyrical content to make the song in whole a solid closer for this EP and one of the record’s most notable works.  When it is considered alongside the other songs discussed here, and the rest of the EP’s works, the whole of the record proves to be a work that will appeal widely to reggae and ska fans and one more of this year’s top new EPs.

Denm’s new EP Endless Summer is a strong new offering that will bring endless enjoyment for fans of reggae and ska alike.  That is proven from beginning to end of this record.  The songs discussed here are but a sample of what makes the record appealing to the noted listeners.  All things considered, they make Endless Summer a record that will stay hot (yes, that awful pun was intentional) well after summer ends and makes way for fall and winter.  It is available now.  More information on Endless Summer is available online now along with Denm’s latest news and more at:

Dodgers, Mets To Close Weekend Series Sunday Night Live on ESPN

Courtesy: ESPN

Two National League opponents will close out their weekend series Sunday night live on ESPN.

The Dodgers and Mets will wrap their three-game series Sunday night live on Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell.  The Dodgers claimed the NL West title this week and added to their positives by opening this weekend’s series against the host Mets with a 9-2 win Friday.

Walker Buehler (13-3) was scheduled to start for Los Angeles as of Saturday night.  Buehler’s last time on the mound was Tuesday against Baltimore. He claimed the win in the Dodgers’ 7-3 victory in that game, striking out 11 batters and allowing only four hits over seven innings. He allowed no walks or earned runs in the game.

Zach Wheeler (11-7) is expected to get the start for the Mets.  His last time on the mound was also Tuesday. He claimed the win in the Mets’ 3-2 win over Arizona, but struggled along the way. Wheeler allowed seven hits, one earned run and two walks over seven innings while striking out seven batters.

Either team can win Sunday’s series finale despite the standings. New York is 6-4 in its last 10 games and 42-30 at home so far this season. That is compared to a 34-41 road record. Los Angeles meanwhile is 7-3 in its last 10 games and 40-33 on the road so far this season versus going 56-20 at home.  At the same time, the Dodgers are riding the momentum of a two-game win streak headed into Saturday’s second game in the series, so Los Angeles has just as much chance to win Sunday as New York.

Matt Vasgersian will anchor Sunday night’s game.  He will be joined in the booth by analysts Alex Rodriguez and Jessica Mendoza for additional commentary.  Reporter Buster Olney will be on the field for all of the game’s latest headlines.

Jon Sciambi will anchor the game’s simulcast on ESPN Radio.  He will be joined by analyst Chris Singleton for additional commentary.

Baseball TonightSunday Night Countdown presented by Chevrolet will precede Sunday night’s SNB broadcast, beginning at 6 p.m.  Kevin Connors will anchor the broadcast.  He will be joined by analysts Tim Kurkjian and Ryan Howard will join him for additional commentary.

Every American Family Will Want To Make PBS Distribution’s New ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’ Collection Theirs

Courtesy: PBS/PBS Distribution

Late this past July, PBS Distribution released a brand new collection of episodes from the timeless, beloved PBS series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.  Released July 16, Would You Be Mine Collection is the second official collection of episodes from the series to be released by PBS Distribution, its predecessor It’s A Beautiful Day Collection having been released last year.  This latest collection is another wonderful presentation from what is one of the greatest programs in the modern history of television.  That statement is supported in part through the collection’s episodes and their content.  This will be addressed shortly.  The four-disc box set’s packaging proves to be just as important to the collection’s presentation as its primary content and will be addressed a little later.  The set’s bonus content rounds out its most important elements, and will also be addressed later.  Each item addressed here is important in its own way to the whole of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood: Would You Be Mine Collection.  All things considered, they make this collection one that every family will want to make theirs.

PBS Distribution’s recently released Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood box set Would You Be Mine Collection is another impressive presentation from a series that is one of the greatest programs in the modern history of television.  That is proven in part through the collection’s primary content.  The primary content is made up of 30 more episodes lifted from the series’ years-long run.  The episodes are pulled from as far back as 1979 and as recent as 2000.  The set opens fittingly with the episode “Mr. Rogers Rides The School Bus.”  Considering that the set was released in late July, just ahead of the start of the new school year, it is a great way to start the set and start getting.  A little deeper into the set, Mr. Rogers tackles the subject of the different kinds of families that exist in the Disc Two episode, “Mr. Rogers Talks About Families.”  Even farther into the set, audiences are presented with one of the series’ heaviest episodes in “Mr. Rogers Talks About Mistakes.”  The episode finds Daniel Tiger asking if he was a mistake at one point because there is no one else like him.  This is a huge deal that so many parents have to tackle, as well as children.  The episode also focuses on the less deep matter of making mistakes in general in life, and explaining that mistakes happen, that it is natural.  The whole thing closes with Mr. Rogers showing a tape of how erasers are made.  This is important because while he does not just come out and say it, the focus on erasers serves as a starting point on talks about how mistakes can be “erased” whether they be on paper or in real life.  It’s too bad he did not get to start that talk, but it is there.  This is just the start of how much the set’s content has to offer audiences of all ages.  Mister Rogers also tackles issues, such as pollution and ecology, dealing with negative emotions and even the arts in this set’s episodes.  Between all of this and much more, the primary content featured in this set offers audiences of all ages plenty to appreciate.  It is just one part of what makes the set so enjoyable.  The set’s packaging adds to its appeal.

The packaging of this latest collection is right in line with its predecessor.  It features a brief synopsis of each of the featured episodes as well as the exact episode number.  The episode summary makes it easier for viewers to choose which episode(s) they want to watch.  This is an aesthetic element, but truly important in its own right.  The less time viewers have to spend choosing a favorite episode, the sooner they can enjoy the set’s episodes, so kudos to those responsible for this addition.  The specific episode number might not seem important, but in fact is very important in that Mister Rogers tackled many of the same topics many times over throughout the course of his show.  At the same time, he tackled the topics in many different ways throughout that run.  The discs are placed on either side of two plates inside the case, protecting each from scratching, and at the same time, assuring the case itself is not a bulky package.  That means that the case saves space on DVD racks and shelves.  So herein is another positive in the set’s packaging.  All of these positives taken into consideration make clear why the packaging of this set is just as important to its whole as the set’s primary content.  When the two elements are examined together, they show even more clearly why the collection is another appealing offering from PBS Distribution.  They are not the set’s only positives.  Its bonus content rounds out its most important elements.

The bonus content featured with Would You Be Mine Collection is an extra episode that is also perhaps one of the most famous and beloved of the series’ run – “Mister Rogers Talks About Competition.”  It is within this episode that audiences are taken into a factory and learn how crayons are made.  The segment is a subtle starting point on a discussion on crayons’ different colors and how they come together to make a beautiful whole.  The crayons are a metaphor for humans and the different colors of everyone’s skin.  This is genius and is just as relevant today as it was in its original broadcast.  He also uses this episode as the basis for a discussion about the importance of doing instead of just winning.  This is an all-too-important lesson considering how competitive so many parents can and do get when they put their children into competitive sports.  Stories have run on the news quite a bit even now in the 21st Century, about parents who are so overly competitive with their kids’ sports that they interject themselves into their children’s sporting events in violent fashion.  Keeping that in mind, this lesson is one from which viewers of all ages can take a certain amount of insight and knowledge.  He also takes a moment to remind his young viewers that they are special because they are not like anyone else.  This echoes the sentiment in the episode noted here about mistakes.  No one is a mistake, and we are all special.  These lessons, reiterated by Mister Rogers, make this collection that much more special.  When all of this is considered, it shows why the famed “Crayon Factory” episode of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood is such an important presentation.  When the importance of this bonus is considered with the impact of the collection’s primary content and its packaging, all three elements join to make the collection in whole another presentation that every family in America will want to make theirs.

Mister Rogers Neighborhood: Would You Be Mine Collection is another positive presentation from PBS Distribution.  It is more proof that while Fred Rogers might not have been Catholic or performed physical miracles, he did perform miracles in making this world and its people better, and in turn deserves sainthood.  This collection also serves as another reminder of why television needs more of this and less of the crime and drama that makes up so much programming today.  These statements are all supported through the set’s primary content and its packaging.  The bonus content that is featured with the set rounds out its most important elements.  All things considered, they make this collection another that every family in America will want to make theirs.  It is available now.  More information about this collection is available online now along with lots of printables, activities and more at:
