– This holiday season, the answer to the question “Ever wonder what your pets do when you’re not home?” is answered when The Secret Life of Pets comes to Digital HD November 22, 2016 and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand December 6, 2016 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The humans behind the Despicable Me franchise present America’s top-grossing original film of the year, the animated comedy is a worldwide hit with over $834 million in global ticket sales. The Secret Life of Pets is “non-stop action and laughs,” says Peter Travers of Rolling Stone. The 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD versions feature nearly an hour of bonus content, including three hilarious mini-movies: the all-new Norman Television and Weenie PLUS Mower Minions which debuted in theaters and is now available to own.

In their fifth fully animated feature-film collaboration, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures present The Secret Life of Pets, a comedy about the lives our pets lead when we leave for work or school. Max, voiced by Louis C.K., is a loyal terrier living a perfectly happy existence until his owner, Katie (Ellie Kemper) brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet) a big, boisterous mutt she finds at the shelter. When Max and his unruly new “roommate” slip away from their dog-walker, they find themselves lost in the urban jungle of New York City. In an attempt to stay ahead of animal control and a rebel band of abandoned pets led by an unhinged bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), they put aside their differences to survive the epic journey back home.

With an all-star voice cast including Louis C.K. (TV’s Louie), Eric Stonestreet (TV’s Modern Family), Kevin Hart (Ride Along Series), Jenny Slate (Zootopia), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Lake Bell (TV’s Children’s Hospital), Dana Carvey (Wayne’s World), Hannibal Buress (Neighbors series), Bobby Moynihan (TV’s “Saturday Night Live), Steve Coogan (Minions) and Albert Brooks (Finding Dory).

The Vampire Diaries – S8|E1: “Hello, Brother” Review

img_6055

Season 8 | Episode 1

Hey everyone! Welcome back to what is regrettably the final season of The Vampire Diaries. Keisha and I got together earlier to discuss the premiere episode and what our predictions are for the rest of the season.

I had the pleasure of watching the premiere episode in Covington, GA, where they film The Vampire Diaries and it was incredible. Being able to have lunch at the Mystic Grill, stand in front of the clocktower and watch the episode with a huge group of fans was a great experience. If you can ever make it out to Covington, pay Jessica a visit at Vampire Stalkers: Mystic Falls Tours. You can visit her website and book a tour to see filming locations from the show. I’ll be posting pictures from the tour I took with my best friends, and also more about the experience of being in Georgia for the premiere, so look out for that.

Check out our podcast review of the episode below and let us know what you thought! You can follow me on Twitter at @ThisIsKristin_ and Keisha at @Keishamaze.

SYNOPSIS: Stefan continues his search for Damon and Enzo months after they vanished from the armory vault; Caroline and Alaric fear for their family after a dangerous encounter with an unexpected visitor.
