The Daily Dash: August 10 2015 {@Descendants2015 DVD Review}

In today’s Daily Dash video, August 10 2015, just another manic Monday…

The Daily Dash: August 10 2015 {@Descendants2015 DVD Review}

* NFL Legend Frank Gifford dies at the age of 84
* Pre-Season Football started Sunday night
* Junior Seau’s daughter gave moving speech at Hall of Fame ceremony. He was inducted three years after he committed suicide.
* One year anniversary of Ferguson (shooting of Michael Brown)

* My husband just got home from the road last night and we’re going to have to figure out how to manage with both of us home and just one car (friends let us borrow their car last week – I know, First World problems).

* Hopefully we’ll find out today if our home sale goes through and then we’ll have to get packing quickly!

* On a fun note, we received the Disney descendants DVD in the mail. Many of you have been asking for my opinion on the film and whether or not it’s appropriate for kids, and I am happy to say we loved it!

Well, all except for the first song, which made me nervous about how the movie was going to be. While probably the most catchy of all the music in the film, and my kids’ favorite song, it is called “rotten to the core”.

It’s probably not the tune you want your kids singing all day and there is a part in the middle of it where Evie talks about being a flirt and breaking someone’s heart. Again, not the attitude I want my daughter to imitate.

Even with that being said, I still highly recommend this movie for kids in their tweens. It is a clever take on the Disney characters and the continuing story of some of your favorite tales. And despite what the opening song may suggest, the movie actually carries with it a very powerful and positive message.

In addition to the original movie, the DVD contains exclusive dance rehearsal footage and bloopers, in addition to a free “Isle of the lost” bracelet.

The movie is rated G and runs for 112 minutes.
