One of my New Years 2019 goals is to have more movie nights with my fam bam.  So, when I heard that Goosebumps 2 was about to release on DVD & Blu-ray I couldn’t help but get extremely excited to watch it.  You see, watching movies at home helps to make Movie Night with my family personally, but is also much more convenient than running out to the theater and dealing with uncomfortable seats.  Furthermore, I grew up with R.L. Stine books and absolutely loved Goosebumps the Movie, so I couldn’t wait to share Goosebumps 2 with my family.

Goosebumps 2 is now available for purchase on Digital, Blu-Ray and DVD.  You can also grab yourself the Combo which includes all three.  

Great for Family Movie Night

For my birthday (which was Monday), my family and I sat down in front of the tube (do they even still call it that?  In case you don’t know what I’m referencing, I mean the television. lol) and put in our Blu-Ray disc to watch Goosebumps 2.  Based on the best-selling book series by R.L. Stine and starring Wendi McLendon-Covey, Chris Parnell and Ken Jeong.

About Goosebumps 2 – The Movie

You know I don’t like to spoil a movie before anyone is able to watch it, but I’m going to share a little run down on what happens.  They say that you must “be careful what you wish for.”  Well, this is all true when best friends Sonny and Sam hope to find treasure in other people’s trash.  While cleaning out the old Stine house, they find a locked book that frees a little nightmare named Slappy!  The two friends, along with the help of Sonny’s sister Sarah are in a race against time to get the dummy and the creatures that are roaming the town for Halloween back into the pages of the book before it’s too late.  

Goosebumps 2 is funny with a combination of a little scary (not too scary for the littles though) and intrigue. I loved that Ken Jeong played a small role in this movie, but his character really gets an R.L. Stine reader excited about the movie.


The disc includes a lot of fun extras as well – like: a Gag Reel, deleted scenes, featurettes and Slappy-Oke Sing Alongs.

If you’re a fan of R.L. Stine or have read the Goosebumps Book Series, you’ll definitely enjoy this one.  My family and I have been waiting patiently to watch and we really enjoyed it.

The Details

Goosebumps 2 has a run time of approximately 120 minutes and is rated PG for scary creature action and images as well as some thematic elements, rude humor and language.  The twins are 9 so they really enjoyed the movie, but there were some parts where they felt the need to close their eyes.  Of course, they realized that it was not that scary and ultimately really loved the movie.  

I love sharing my childhood with my sons and having some of my favorite books come to life in movies is definitely a great way to share it.  I’ve got the twins wanting to read the books so I’m definitely excited about that.  
Check out some of the fun additions that you can do with your family like the Goosebumps Gummy Bear Slime or Science with Slappy where you can grow, observe and glow your bears.

The Drac Pack is back with HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3, which will make its debut on Digital HD September 25, and on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD on October 9, just in time to for a spooky, fun, family movie night right before Halloween!This must-own family comedy, which has grossed more than $425 million in theaters worldwide to date, follows in the tradition of the blockbuster Hotel Transylvania franchise when Mavis surprises Dracula with a family voyage on a luxury, haunted monster cruise ship. Of course, the rest of the Drac Pack has to tag along, and that’s when things get a little…batty. The monsters are having a great time, indulging in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to colossus-sized buffets and exotic excursions, but then the unexpected happens when Drac falls for the ship’s mysterious (and dangerous) human captain Ericka. The third film in this family-friendly monster franchise is the best reviewed installment and you’re invited along on the haunted cruise vacation!

If you’ve been a long time follower of Honeygirl’s World, then you probably know that I love a great movie.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a new rom com or a thriller, I love a great flick that I can sit down and watch with a bowl of popcorn and lose myself for a couple of hours with surround sound and the smell of warm butter.  Recently I had the opportunity to watch Kidnap, starring Halle Berry.  A thriller about a single mom that will stop at nothing to get her kidnapped son back from those that are holding him captive.  Is this a flick worth the watch?  Read on to see…

movie review, Kidnap, Halle Berry, movie, movie recap, review, Christopher Berry, Kidnap 2017, Karla Dyson, movie trailor, new movie,

As the title of the movie suggests, it’s about a mother who’s on a mission to get her son back from a Kidnapper(s) and she will go to no length to get him back.  As a mom, I think this movie took me for a rollercoaster of thoughts and emotions and I recall thinking to myself how I would probably be acting similar to Halle Berry’s (Karla Dyson) character in the movie.

“Never stop looking, Never stop fighting!”

I’m not gonna review this movie in detail because I am one who hates spoilers before watching a movie.  But, I’ll give you a little summary.  The movie starts as Karla Dyson (Halle Berry), takes her son to a park.  Dyson is going through a divorce and finds herself taking an important phone call for just a second when someone snatches up her son in a blink of an eye.  Through the movie, Dyson (Berry) tracks down the driver of the car and follows him as best as she can to get her son (Frankie) back, without endangering him.  They threaten to kill him numerous times but she does everything in her power to get him back.

The movie follows the character through different towns as she tracks down the kidnappers and a high-speed chase on the freeway yields a huge pile up of cars.  All the while she tries to get the attention of police who either suspect that she is the criminal or don’t have the resources to help her.  After hours of chasing the car, she finally meets up with them only to find out that she has discovered more into the kidnapping than she had originally thought.

“That’s what all these people did, they waited!”


Check out the Trailer for the movie here and watch it if you dare.  The thing is, this movie is a bit different from what you would expect to see from Berry.  She plays a role that opens up a different side of her acting skills.  This particular movie may not be some people’s cup of tea, but as a mother, I truly enjoyed it.  I watched it with my kids (though there are some scenes that I had them close their eyes or leave the room), but it allowed me to really show them what could happen if they wander off or talk to strangers.  Of course, this particular movie is quite dramatic, but in our current society, anything like this can happen.  I really enjoyed the movie and it kept me glued to the screen the entire time, a nail biting, edge of the seat kind of flick.  I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s a great film, but it kept me in suspense enough that I enjoyed it and I would watch it again.

“You took the wrong kid!” 

So, will you be heading to the theater this weekend to watch Kidnap or are you planning to watch from the comfort of your own home?  Overall, I think I enjoyed the movie and as a mother, it really had my emotions all over the place, screaming at the television and freaking out, but I enjoyed it.  Simplistic but to the point, ya know.
