THE LAST RIDE blu-ray review

* I received the below mentioned product solely for review purposes.  The below opinions are completely honest and completely my own.

Based on the controversial life story of singer-songwriter, Hank Williams, THE LAST RIDE tells the powerful tale of country music's original bad boy. The man, the myth and the music come together when Williams travels from Alabama to a series of New Years shows in West Virginia and Ohio. This remarkable journey leads straight into the heart and soul of the legendary performer...as he takes one last shot at redemption. Featuring all-new versions of Hank Williams' greatest songs, this emotional tale of hope and truth is one you'll never forget.


Lately my fiancee and I have hardly had time to spend together much less watch a movie.  SO when we realized we had a couple of hours one night, we decided to watch The Last Ride.  Now I have to admit I did not know that the original Hank Williams was a "Bad Boy" like the movie shows.  I honestly had him pegged for one of those "Good Ol' Country Boys".  Boy was I surprised when I started watching the movie!

The movie basically features the final few days of Hank's life.  First I had hoped Hank would sing, but he didn't in the entire movie.  Besides that fact, I really liked the movie.  The chemistry between Hank and his newly appointed driver, Silas , was the highlight of the movie especially since most was in the car.  There were several scenes that made me laugh out loud!  

If you are a fan of Hank Williams or know someone who is, then you should definitely grab a copy of this movie.  The blu-ray is available where blu-rays are sold at nationwide retailers and also online retailers like Amazon.  Right now on Amazon, the blu-ray is $17.99 ( which is a great price for a blu-ray).  SO be sure to grab a copy today and enjoy a final ride with Ol' Hank!

SORRY for the DELAY, and HERE is an UPDATE finally...

I have meant to start this post several times and actually have once.  I wanted to first thank all my normal readers who still enter my giveaways and leave comments as well.  I have recently been more absent than normal due to family situations.  Some of them have been upsetting and some have been good like working on a full house remodel/transformation.  ( I know I am silly to say that I really didn't think my blogging would be affected so much by rearranging furniture and such!)

I hope you will continue to bare with me and also keep those eyes peeled for some really exciting reviews and such coming soon.  Also I am working on a new look for my blog that will gradually take into effect slowly.  Also I have decided to do a Pinterest craft each week so if you have any suggestions on one then share below...

Not sure when I will start the Pinterest craft posts but hopefully in the next few weeks.  Again I apologize for the lack of posts and such.  SO get ready for some great reviews and possibly giveaways!  Oh and of course CRAFTS!!!!!

* I received the information below to share with my readers.  The giveaway gift will be sent from the pr company directly to the winner.

I just recently purchased my very first Flat Screen tv and I couldn't be more excited about it.  I have noticed though recently that it can seem wobbly on my tv stand unlike my old heavier model.  I have thought about getting a tv mount for it and have even been looking online for options.  Recently Sanus and Safe Kids Worldwide teamed together to make families more aware of the risk of flat screen tvs and I was shocked at what I learned. I will definitely also be getting a tv mount for my tv.   Below is more information about it...

For many Americans, a flat panel TV is a great way to enjoy family time and entertainment.  However, most parents are unaware of the safety risks that flat panel TVs pose for kids.  Due to increasing size and new ultra thin designs, today’s flat panel TVs can easily tip over when bumped or pulled, toppling off of furniture and causing injury or even death.
Bringing this risk to the forefront, SANUS, the leading designer and manufacturer of flat panel TV wall mounts, has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide.  By educating consumers on the risk of unsecured flat panel TV’s, SANUS and Safe Kids Worldwide offer safe solutions for families across the nation by reducing TV tip-over related injuries and fatalities.

A 2011 US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report on flat panel TV safety revealed:
·         A child is killed every three weeks from an unsecured TV
·         Every 45 minutes a child visits an emergency room due to a TV tip-over related injury
·         Between 2000 and 2011, 215 fatalities have resulted from TV tip-over
·         An estimated 17,000 people each year, the majority of which are children, are treated for injuries from TV tip-overs
·         Reported cases have increased almost 25% from 2006  to 2010, and over the last 10 years, injuries have increased by 31%

SANUS TV Mounting Tips:
  • Easy 1, 2, 3 installation with a wall template to ensure even placement
  • Online video walkthrough of simple installation available at any time
  • No additional tools necessary – all required installation hardware is included in package
  • Live customer support available 6 days a week
Now I have so great news!  Sanus has offered me the opportunity to host a giveaway for a Sanus TV Tilting Mount ( like the one shown below...)
