"After Earth" screening review. Opens in theaters tomorrow 5/31

Disclosure: I attended this screening with a media pass. The comments and views are my own.

Wednesday night I went to an advanced screening to see the film "After Earth" staring Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith. As in real life, in the movie they are father and son.

First of all- the thought of "After Earth" is a bit scary-right. In the film they crash land on "Earth" but it is not earth as we know it now. It's only animals, people are not there-here.  Cypher (Wil Smith) is the General and his son Kitai Raige  (Jaden Smith) is training to be a ranger. 

There are some parts of the film that are startling. I saw a few people including myself do one of those yikes moments caught off guard a few times during the film. watch the trailer below to see a bit of the film.

The film has a great story of Father/Son relationships, but the part I took most out of the movie was how Kitai's dad tells him about fear and danger. Fear is not real, it is not here, but danger is. Kitai has to overcome fear in order to save his father and self after the aircraft they are traveling in crashes onto earth. Perhaps we all should heed that lesson-and not let fear be a part of our lives.

The film opens Friday May 31, 2013, It's a hot weekend so go cool off at the theater. It's also near Father's day, take your Dad to see the film.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products.

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
