Review: Planes Fire and Rescue

We received a copy of Planes Fire and Rescue to watch and review. Opinions are 100% our own.

As a family we enjoyed the first Planes movie. The kids have requested to watch it many times. I enjoyed it and found it funny and pretty decent overall. I’m not a big fan of Dane Cook, now. When I was in college he came and performed and was hilarious. That was well before his mega tour and everything that came after that. I remember him as a funny guy who did this whole dinosaur bit that had us rolling. He does a good job in the Planes movies as Dusty Crophopper. The kids don’t care about anything outside of the movie and they love Dusty.

He still races but finds out that his gearbox is starting to fail and if he pushes things he’s going to crash. He’s an older model plane and so there is no gearbox around to be found to replace his faulty one. Dusty can no longer redline it and so he can’t race. He starts to feel sorry for himself and through a series of events he inadvertently causes a fire at Propwash Junction. This sheds a light on the fact that there is an outdated fire safety issue and this threatens to shut down the place and their annual corn festival.

Review: Transformers Rescue Bots: Mystery Rescue DVD

Transformers Rescue Bots Mystery Rescue

I recently received another compilation DVD for Transformers Rescue Bots. This is a show that my daughter and I enjoy watching together and my son is just starting to get into. We’ve collected all of the toys and are eagerly awaiting the dinosaur themed episodes that I hope are coming (based on what I’ve seen of the toys). But to tide us over we have this DVD which collects five episodes from the series with a mystery theme for each one. While the collector in me is thoroughly frustrated in not having a complete season on DVD and getting a DVD with a mixture of episodes from season 1 and season 2 on it I still like having the episodes for the kids to watch. The kids aren’t paying attention to continuity that much at this time anyway. Continue reading Review: Transformers Rescue Bots: Mystery Rescue DVD
