If you love cute little pups, you will love the Pups that are ALWAYS on the case!   I think Marshall is pretty cute (he is also silly and clumsy) but Broxton's favorite seems to rotate.  At least with the latest DVD, the 2 frequent favorites are on the cover!   If you are familiar with Paw Patrol, grab this DVD to add to your collection, if you are not yet familiar, grab the DVD and fall in love with Ryder and the Pups! 
PAW Patrol: Marshall and Chase On the Case! includes the following episodes:
  • Pups Pit Crew/ Pups Fight Fire - Ryder and the PAW Patrol have to rescue Alex when he takes off on his new “super trike.” Marshall proves to be a true hero when he puts out a real fire during a race for the Fastest Fire Pup trophy.
  • Pups Save a Hoedown/ Pups Save Alex - It’s Adventure Bay Western Days.  The whole town is enjoying the activities when a herd of cows escape from a train at the railway station.  Now it’s like the real old west, with the PAW Patrol rounding up cows. When their friend Alex decides he wants to be a member of the PAW Patrol the pups and Ryder let him come along for the ride.  Rescuing Cali the cat from farmer Yumi’s barn becomes more of a challenge when Alex tries to help!
  • Pups Save a Monkey/ Pups Save a Hoot - When Mandy the monkey escapes from her cage on the train, Ryder and the PAW Patrol are lead on a wild chase through Adventure Bay. During a bad windstorm, Ryder and the PAW Patrol have to save an Owl trapped in a blown over tree and reunite her with her baby, Little Hootie.
  • Pups and the Lighthouse Boogie/ Pups Save Ryder - Mayor Goodway and Alex take a rowboat out into the bay to get a closer look at a baby whale.  A storm is approaching though and the rowboat drifts out of control towards the sea. It's up to the PAW Patrol to rescue them! While out on a hike Ryder discovers Garby the goat stuck on a cliff edge. He attempts to rescue Garby, but gets stranded in the process.  Rydercalls the pups for help but drops his Pup Pad down the cliff side and it’s up to the PAW Patrol to save him.
Bonus Features:
“Pup, Pup, And Away! Video Storybook”

The cute little guppies are back at it again.  Now, the Bubble Guppies come in a 2 DVD gift set, perfect for your little one.  It is for the younger crowd, but Broxton still enjoys watching from time to time.  I love that they have catchy songs that stick in your head and are cute.  This would be a great birthday gift, or even an addition to an Easter basket this year!

If you are really into movie nights, you might want to check these out. I know back when we had Blockbusters and what not, my mom would rent movies every weekend, not so much now... But never forget you still have redbox, movies on demand or you can purchase them!  I have not seen these yet, but they are on my list. 
The Drop is available now and Drumline will be available in March! 
The Drop
A phenomenal cast, including Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini, lead this gritty thriller about Bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) and his hardened employer Uncle Marv (Gandolfini) who must choose between survival and loyalty when they find themselves caught in a robbery gone bad, and on the hook for a mob debt they can’t repay. 
 
Drumline: A New Beat Step up for the high-energy sequel to the smash hit Drumline! In this upbeat film about dreams, dynamism and drumming, high school grad Dani Raymond’s (Alexandra Shipp) parents are anxious to send her to the prestigious college they've picked out for her. But Dani wants to follow her dreams and land a spot on the Atlanta A&T drumline. It won’t be easy, though: some of the upperclassmen don’t want a girl on the line, and Dani finds herself in direct competition with her new love interest (Jordan Calloway). With incredible musical numbers, a gifted cast and a story that’ll quicken your heartbeat, Drumline: A New Beat is exhilarating entertainment from start to finish.

Being in Atlanta means that today is a SNOW DAY.  That also may mean that you are trying to find something to watch to pass the time.  Why not snuggle in a nice thick blanket and catch a movie that was released in December?  (If you are like me, you have yet to see any "new releases" anytime soon, so now sounds perfect!) 
I have not watched this yet, but plan to as soon as I get a mommy movie night! 
 
Based on the book by James Dashner that made The New York Times best-sellers list for more than 100 weeks, THE MAZE RUNNER brings together an up-and-coming cast of young talent including Dylan O’Brien (“Teen Wolf,” The Internship), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (“Game of Thrones”), Will Poulter (We’re the Millers), and Kaya Scodelario (“Skins”) that do whatever it takes to survive.
In this heart-pounding survival thriller based on the best-selling novel, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien of MTV’s “Teen Wolf” ) wakes up trapped in a massive, ever-changing maze with a group of boys who have no memory of the outside world. Facing dangerous obstacles at every turn — especially the deadly Grievers that roam the concrete corridors at night — Thomas and the others must race to piece together clues in order to discover their true purpose… and find a way out before it’s too late!
