Make it Earth Week - Check out the Earth Day and Family Friendly title @Disneynature 'Wings of Life' on Video!

Whether you spend Earth Day outdoors or indoors, if you are looking for a fun way to engage the entire family, I would recommend Disneynature's Wings Of Life available now on Blu-ray Combo Pack and HD Digital.

The Movie opens with an amazing quote: 

"Life Depends on the Little Things We Take For Granted."

The theme unfolds in a series of stunning displays of Nature at it's absolute finest while exploring the  intersection of animal and plant worlds and how they are all inter-dependent on one another. Disneynature is the same studio behind the popular titles "Earth", "Oceans", "African Cats" and "Chimpanzee".

The latest release, "Wings of Life" is narrated by Meryl Streep, and her narration has an incredibly soothing quality to it that makes the narration from one scene to the other feel effortless and easy.

It is an intimate look into the world of butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, bats and flowers, a third of the world's food supply depends on these amazing creatures. Creatures that are increasingly threatened.

Check out the Clip Monarch Wings of Life:

Monarch - Wings of Life on Disney Video

There are so many ways to help enhance the movie and activities you can do with your child to help integrate what they see and learn in the movie and help to bring the message home!

Teach Your Children to Plant and Care for us.

and if you don't have a Garden, or are an apartment dweller, you can join in the fun too:

Plant Us In a Window Box!

Some Go Green Reminders:

Go Local, Support Your Organic Farmers and Beekeepers!

Join a Neighborhood Cooperative Garden!

and I have to admit this one, is one of my favorite tips:

Plant us alongside roadways. The land there is open to everyone!

Wouldn't you rather see flowers than trash along the roadways?

Plant us in a backyard or a rooftop Garden!

and you know Ascending Butterfly is all for this tip:

Bring Back the Monarchs, Plant Milkweed!

There are tons of great butterfly sightings in the movie:

Seeing the Monarch Butterflies in the trees and watching them fly off is one of the most visually impactful moments in the movie, it looks at first as if the butterflies are just leaves that begin to change color for Fall, but the butterflies are actually so plenty in number that they can literally bend the tree!

Watching the Caterpillar change into a Butterfly is another one of my favorite scenes in this movie, it's captured in such amazing detail, and is one of the most amazing transformations in nature!

Even those pesky picnic pests, Bees, have an important role in Nature as they are the pollinators that keep the flowers blooming by helping them to achieve what they cannot do on their own.

The movie ends with a song that says "Where there is life there is love and hidden beauty"

My Take:

The cinematography is breath-taking, and this family friendly movie has a lesson in it for all ages, this has to be the perfect way to bring a bit of Earth Day home!

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER 3D Now on DVD {@AbeTheHunter #Movie #Review}


Needless to say that Ascending Butterfly is counting down to Halloween already as Horror is my favorite movie genre of all time! (Any fellow Horror and Vampire Movie Genre Lovers out there that would get into trouble for slipping their copy of Fangoria Magazine in their school books?) Yesterday's Movie Review was for an all ages Family Friendly title, (Disney Secret of the Wings Movie Review, if you missed it, you could check out HERE) but today's title is most definitely NOT for the kiddos!

I didn't get the chance to see this one in the theatres because of my insane travel schedule and now that I got to see it on video I truly regret not catching this one on the 'big screen'.

While I'm a huge fan of the genre, I'm the first to admit that most horror movies are a bit plot 'light' and usually disappointing in the end, but I can honestly tell you this one is NONE of those! I greatly enjoyed this movie! For the life of me I could not conceive how Vampires and Abraham Lincoln would come together, but they really did do it somehow!

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter 3D Box Cover Art

Plot Summary

English: The election season is about to get a whole lot bloodier as historical legend throws his hat into the ring in ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, arriving on Blu-ray™3D, Blu-ray™ and DVD October 23 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. A citizen by day and a hunter by night, this action-packed film with cutting-edge visual effects shows the Lincoln you know – with one additional quality of which you were unaware... until now.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER explores the secret life of Abraham Lincoln before he became President, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton (Dark Shadows) and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history's greatest hunter of the undead.

Based on the New York Times Best Seller novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER stars Benjamin Walker (Flags of Our Fathers), Dominic Cooper (Captain American: The Frist Avenger), Anthony Mackie (The Adjustment Bureau), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) and Rufus Sewell (The Tourist). The Blu-ray™ 3D and Blu-ray™ are loaded with killer content and hard action, including an exclusive never-before-scene animated graphic novel prequel about the origins of vampires in the U.S.A.

Spanish/Espanol: La temporada de elecciones está a punto de obtener un montón radicalizarse como leyenda histórica lanza su sombrero en el anillo de ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, llegando el Blu-ray ™ 3D, Blu-ray ™ y DVD el 23 de octubre de Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Un ciudadano por día y un cazador de noche, esta película llena de acción muestra efectos visuales de vanguardia el Lincoln sabes – con una calidad adicional que desconocían... hasta ahora.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER explora la vida secreta de Abraham Lincoln antes de convertirse en Presidente y la historia no contada que formaron nuestra nación. Traen cineastas visionarios (Dark Shadows) de Tim Burton y Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) trae una voz fresca y visceral a la tradición sanguinaria del vampiro, imaginando a Lincoln como el cazador mayor de history de los muertos vivientes.

Basada en la novela superventas del New York Times por Seth Grahame-Smith, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER estrellas Benjamin Walker (Flags of Our Fathers), Dominic Cooper (Capitán América: El Vengador de Frist), Anthony Mackie (The Adjustment Bureau), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs el mundo) y Rufus Sewell (el turista). El Blu-ray ™ 3D y Blu-ray ™ se cargan con la acción de contenido y dura asesina, incluyendo un exclusivo nunca-antes-escena animada gráfico novela precuela sobre los orígenes de los vampiros en los EE. 

My Take:

I had the same reaction most people had when they heard about this title, 'yeah right'. But I can tell you that as Far Fetched as it may seem, it really does come together, you get invested in the characters, it's well-paced, isn't just solely relying on special effects, and does not let you down! This one is definitely a winner for your Halloween Weekend viewing and for your Horror/Vamp Movie Collection!

If you already saw this one, what did YOU think YAY or NAY? Did you catch them at Comic Con This Year?

Snow White & The Huntsman DVD Release Party hosted by Yellowtail Wine!

With me being a life long New Yorker, normally today we'd focus on 09/11, but I frankly needed to wrap my mind around something else. Something not related to that horrible day that I can still remember in vivid detail, I also needed a mental break from Fashion Week madness, and for me when I need a mental break my favorite way to go is a movie! And preferably a good thriller or horror movie!

Today is the release of NBCUniversal's Snow White & The Huntsman on DVD, and of the two recent Snow White remakes, this one is most definitely my favorite of the two. It's a lot darker, this New Vision Turns a Legendary Tale Into a Visually Stunning, Epic action-Adventure Featuring All Star Cast Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth.

Pulse Pounding Trailer Anyone?


In this spectacular action-adventure, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) is Snow White, the only woman in the land fairer than the evil queen Ravenna (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron). Ravenna wants nothing more than to destroy her young rival, but she doesn’t know that Show White has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) the same huntsman that the queen dispatched to kill her. Together with a handsome prince (Sam Claflin) enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power, they assemble an armed force to recapture the kingdom. Venture into a land of action fantasy, heroic battle scenes and visual wonder in Snow White and the Huntsman Extended Edition, coming to Blu-ray ™ Combo Pack, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download on September 11, 2012, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Packed with pulse-pounding battles, unmatched visual imagination and compelling characters, Snow White and the Huntsman is a wholly original adventure story told on an epic scale. From the splendor of the wicked Queen's enchanted palace to the menace of the Dark Forest, a breathtaking combination of harrowing beauty, epic battle scenes, visual wonder and jaw-dropping special effects make this film singularly suited for 
the incomparable high-definition picture and perfect hi-def 5.1 surround sound of Blu-ray ™.


Yellow Tail Wine and NBCUniversal hosted a DVD Release Party last night at Gary's Loft that was FANTASTIC! The Penthouse of Gary's Loft was transformed into a 'Masquerade Meets Dark and Enchanted Forest' cocktail party complete with a Fortune Teller, Massages (courtesy of the fab team at Spa Chicks On The Go), a Candy Station, a make your own candy apple station (in honor of the poison apple in the fairy tale of course), a photo station with fun props where you given a commerative and framed 5X7 photo where your image is superimposed onto a castle backdrop taken by Verita Vision Photography, signature cocktails that blended in various Yellow Tail wines (with fun names like Snow White Crusader, The Huntsman's Kiss, Poison Tini and the Queens tini) and even a Yellow Tail Bubbles station (and by 'bubbles' I mean Champagne). It was a super fun evening, with prizes, a lovely swag bag and there were even folks dancing along to the great tunes being spun by the DJ!

Here are some pictures I captured during the Release Party:

When the elevator doors opened to the Penthouse, this is what you see! I always knew my Knight in Shining Armor would come bearing WINE! :)

Right Behind the Knight in Shining Armor was a 'Masks Tree' you were given the option of a white mask to represent for team Snow White or a Dark Mask to represent for the Queen! Can you guess which side I selected?

This large mask is actually a CHAIR! I took this picture without flash and it gave the appearance of blue eyes!

When I took the same shot over WITH Flash this time, the 'eyes' of the chair look almost black!

Check out Ascending Butterfly on the throne! (Cheeky I  know, couldn't resist!)  I chose 'the dark side mask' :-)

Mama Butterfly chose the 'dark side' as well, grabbed a pic of her sans mask!

Check out The Huntsman and Snow White Costumes!

We were able to step up to the mirror and ask the Fortune Teller a Question, I asked about Career, and Mama Butterfly asked about whether or not she'd ever be a Grandma, and he said yes! Hmmmmm <-I'm NOT so sure about that one! ;)

Check out the oversized mushroom next to one of the candy stations!

Pretty display of assorted Yellow Tail Wines!

Life in New York City couldn't get any sweeter than a handsome stranger pouring you something bubbly!

Left: Mama Butterfly Center: Almost shoulder high Huge Rose and Right: ME! Ascending Butterfly!

My Take:

I enjoyed BOTH the actual movie and the super fun release party! I say make it a movie night this weekend and don't forget a bottle of Yellow Tail Bubbles!

Ascending Butterfly's 2011 Holidays Buying Guide, Giveaway #4 brought to you by:


We started our Kids Corner in our Annual Holidays Buying Guide with a review of Cars 2, and now we have a review (with giveaway this time! YAY!) for The Littlest Angel! This classic childrens story has been reimagined and is now available for purchase. This rated G release has been been approved for all ages by The Dove Foundation

The Littlest Angel (who reminds me a great deal of my nephew, inquisitive, smart, and sometimes mischievious), is the story of a young boy who arrives in heaven way before his time, he finds himself lonely and very home-sick  and goes on an adventure back to earth with his trusty pup Halo both to earn his wings and to retrieve a gift for the baby Jesus, as well as learn valuable lessons along the way. Discovering that the greatest gifts in life are faith, friendship and doing the right thing!

With great animation and strong vocal talent including Ron Perlman (who also voiced characters in Beauty and the Beast as well as Tangled) The Littlest Angel is sure to become a favorite holiday tradition much like the book it is based on.

Wanna keep the little ones entertained while waiting for Turkey Day Dinner? How about coloring pages?

Press on each picture individually, then print as many copies as you need, do this for each picture separately if you want all of them!

Coloring Pages

I haven't colored in ages, I might have to print out a set for myself! Have the kiddos color them and then put them on the fridge!

 My Take:

This is definitely a fun & safe for all ages film, that is heart-warming and charming. With a more classic animation style that relies less on the special effects and more on telling a great story. As an Aunt and Godmother what I love is that this allows you to give a gift of faith in a way that makes it fun for the child.

As a God-Mother I really like to find gifts that are Faith based for my God-Children and it's a challenge to find items sometimes, I want to enhance their faith in a way that is age appropriate and still very fun and this movie is definitely a perfect stocking stuffer!

Go back to the Hundred Acre Wood with Winnie the Pooh - Now on Blu Ray

Winnie the Pooh was always my favorite bear when I was a kid. I attended the screening earlier this year when the movie was released, which you can read about HERE

What I loved was the retro feel of it, no special effects, classic animation, no inappropriate humor, just a good clean family movie that you can feel confident taking the little ones to see.

Film Synopsis:

Disney returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh.” Featuring the timeless charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, thisall-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very littlebrain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo – and last, butcertainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Ever have one of thosedays where you just can’t win, Eeyore?” asks Pooh. Owl sends the whole gang ona wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns outto be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some honey.Disney’s all-new “Winnie the Pooh” movie is inspired by three stories from A.A.Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art.

Blu-ray™ Bonus Features:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  · Exclusive bonus short “Mini-Adventures of Winnie thePooh: The Balloon” – In this charming short, Pooh comes up with a daring plan to get a hold of some honey by fooling a group of bees.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·  “The Ballad of Nessie” - The animated short film included in the theatrical release is the heart warming tale of  how Nessie found her new home in the Loch Ness.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·  “Winnie the Pooh and His Story Too” – A fun and informative behind-the-scenes look at the film, designed for the whole family. Hosted by John Cleese (narrator of the film), and with occasional help from Pooh himself, this featurette explores Winnie the Pooh’s history from his beginnings as a character in a book, to his continued life in the movies. The filmmakers reveal how they worked to keep the look of the characters and settings in this movie consistent with their first appearances on-screen in1966. Pooh, being a bear of very little mind, finds much of this confusing, but the Narrator and the filmmakers make it all clear to Pooh – and you! 

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·  Deleted Scenes introduced by directors, Stephen Anderson and Don Hall – 5 deleted scenes including “TheTummy Song,” “Rabbit’s Friends and Relations,” “Original Eeyore Intro”, ”Original Tigger Intro” and “Pooh Searches for a Tail” 

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·  Sing-Along with the Movie – Follow the red balloon and changing word colors to seven song lyrics featured in the film.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·  Disney Song Selection –“Winnie the Pooh Theme Song,” “The Tummy Song, “A Very Important Thing To Do,”“The Backson Song,” “It’s Gonna Be Great,” “Everything is Honey” and “The Winner Song Finale”

DVD Bonus Features:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·  “Mini-Adventures of Winnie the Pooh: The Balloon”

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·   “The Ballad of Nessie”

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·   Deleted scenes introduced by directors,Stephen Anderson and Don Hall – 3 deleted scenes including “The Tummy Song,” “”Rabbit’s Friends and Relations” and “Pooh Searches for a Tail”

Movie Download Bonus Features:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·   “Mini-Adventures of Winnie the Pooh: The Balloon”

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·   “The Ballad of  Nessie”

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·  Deleted Scenes introduced directors. Stephen Anderson and Don Hall – 3 deleted scenes including “The Tummy Song,” “Rabbit’s Friends and Relations” and “Pooh Searches for aTail”

And that 'silly old bear' is even cuter with a butterfly on his nose! Disney movies never disappoint on the butterfly sightings! I'd love to think they are being thrown in there just for me.

If you didn't catch this one in the theater you should definitely get the Blu Ray/DVD Combo to add to your home Disney library.
