Hubby and I spend a lot of time and energy into making sure our boy has the most fun he can possibly have every day. A common discussion during our lunch breaks together revolves around what we will do with the boy that evening. It might be something as simple as playing a board game, putting together a puzzle, or watching a new episode of his favorite TV show, but it also may include going to the theater, visiting the zoo, or buying the most recent New Release kid-friendly movie. One thing that we tend to forget sometimes is planning time for us. We try to make plans for a conversation, watching a show we both enjoy, or something more special for after the boy is asleep, but inevitably one of us will fall asleep or that will be the night that our boy won't go to sleep on time. This month, before the Holidays really hit, we planned a date night and we made it out…of…this…world!!
Out of this World Date Night #SeeMIB3
Remember last month, when I mentioned that I picked up the Men In Black 3 pre-purchase, that it is coming to Blu-Ray and DVD on November 30, but would be able to see it early by watching it online with VUDU? Well…that is exactly what we did for our date night!!
While Hubby was preparing our alien-inspired dinner (and yes, I was slightly afraid of what that might look like) I logged onto VUDU.com to get our movie ready. This is the first time we have viewed a movie on VUDU so I was slightly nervous that either (a) the movie wouldn't be there as promised, (b) I wouldn't be able to figure it all out, or (c) my computer wouldn't work with the movie (it's a dinosaur).
I logged in, clicked on My VUDU and My Movies, and there it was! Score 1!!
I clicked on the Men in Black 3 picture and was given this screen with all of the information that I might want to know about the movie. Since Hubby and I haven't seen MIB3, we were interested in some of this, but we only had a small window of babysitter time so we will have to come back to this.
I clicked on "Watch HDX" and we were set to go! Score 2!!
The movie was on and we were ready to go!! My dinosaur computer had no problems streaming the video and we were laughing in now time! Score 3!!
After watching the screen for a short time, I realized that we could expand it and watch it full screen and then we were really set! Score again!!
And the alien dinner? Bonus Score!!
Stir-fry alien guts with meatball googly eyes!
My husband is such a goofball, but he is an amazing chef. He loves to cook and while most people think of restaurants and movie theaters for a date night, we think of Hubby cooking and a movie rental. Unfortunately, we tend to rent videos at a video kiosk and forget to take them back.
We checked out all of the newest picks and can definitely see where we will be renting movies now. We still haven't used our free rental code from becoming a new user, so what should we watch next?!!
Men In Black 3 on Blu-Ray/DVD on 11/30
In MEN IN BLACK™3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back…in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K's life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him – secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency and the future of humankind.
