“The Most Important Film of the Year.” ~ Marlo Thomas, Huffington Post

“This movie really does have the power to save lives.” ~ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

ANCHOR BAY ENTERTAINMENT and THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY TAKE A STAND WITH THE EXTRAORDINARY DOCUMENTARY THAT FUELED A NATIONAL MOVEMENT BULLY ON BLU-RAY™ COMBO PACK AND DVD

Directed by Sundance and Emmy® Award-Winning Filmmaker Lee Hirsch, BULLY Heads To Retail On February 12, 2013!

Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company announced today the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD release of BULLY, the critically-acclaimed documentary film that sparked a national movement that rallied people to stand up to bullying, hate, and intolerance. Directed by Lee Hirsch, BULLY follows the lives of five students whose stories each represent a different facet of America’s bullying crisis, and the families that fight for them. A call to action, the film not only captured the attention of the country, but fostered a national dialogue about bullying, uniting parents, teachers, and students in the fight against the violence that has gone unchecked for too long in our schools. Timely and significant, BULLY heads to retail on February 12, 2013.

TIME Magazine film critic, Richard Corliss, called [amazon_link id=”B0059XTUJU” target=”_blank” ]BULLY[/amazon_link] “A movie your kids must see.” Wrote film critic, Claudia Puig, in her review for USA Today, “Bully should be required viewing for everyone, including parents, teachers, and school officials.” Added Rolling Stone film critic, Peter Travers,”Lee Hirsch’s film is a potent and provocative look at a problem that’s out of control.” Said People Magazine’s, Alynda Wheat, BULLY is “Powerful.”

Here are the facts: Thirteen million kids will be bullied in the U.S. this year, making bullying the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation. Three million students will be absent each month because they feel unsafe at school. Thirty percent of children who reported being bullied said they sometimes brought weapons to school. School personnel are reported to notice or intervene in only one out of every twenty-five incidents. Fifty percent of the time, when an upstander intervenes in bullying, the bullying stops within ten seconds. Bullying is a serious problem, and the solutions belong to us all.

The Bully Project, the social outreach campaign inspired by the film, has screened BULLY for more then 250,0000 educators and students nationwide, in a supported educational context, including curriculum and professional development tools to enrich the experience. From screenings at the White House to citywide summits in Cleveland, San Francisco, and Salt Lake City, the filmmakers have built a tremendous network of partners and experts. BULLY director Lee Hirsch, in an article for Origin. Magazine, wrote, “Sometimes it is the emotional experience of film and television that bring a cause to our hearts and stir us to action – they inform and inspire.” After seeing this film, leaders from the worlds of Hollywood, fashion, politics, business and sports – including President Barack Obama, Meryl Streep, Ellen DeGeneres, Johnny Depp, the New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees, Tommy Hilfiger, Justin Bieber, Kelly Ripa and Anderson Cooper – publicly lent their support to amplify the message of BULLY.

From Sundance Award-winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, comes a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary following five kids and families over the course of a school year. Offering insight into different facets of America’s bullying crisis, the stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter, who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate and often shocking glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals’ offices, BULLY is a powerful and inspiring film that every educator, parent and teenager should see.

The [amazon_link id=”B0059XTUJU” target=”_blank” ]BULLY Blu-ray™ Combo Pack[/amazon_link] and DVD special features include a Filmmaker Q&A, Featurettes, Celebrity PSAs, and Deleted Scenes. Note: Special features are subject to change.

GLEE SEASON 2 DVD STRIKES A CHORD WITH “GIVE A NOTE” CAMPAIGN, $1 MILLION DONATION TO HELP SAVE ARTS PROGRAMS IN SCHOOLS

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 13, 2011) – Jane Lynch has revved up her megaphone to tout the benefits of arts education is schools, starring in a public service announcement (PSA) that debuts tonight at 8:45pm Eastern Standard Time on the Fox Network’s “GLEE” program. It’s the centerpiece of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s campaign to donate $1 million to arts education around the country and Lynch is the featured spokesperson as the harsh and witty cheer coach, “Sue Sylvester.” Beyond “GLEE,” the PSA is expected to air on television and cable stations across the country.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (TCFHE) and the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) have teamed up for “GLEE Give a Note,” a campaign to donate $1 million to school arts programs across the country. Eligible high schools are invited to submit videos about why their school deserves a grant at www.GleeGiveANote.com. In December 2011, after two rounds of voting, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will name the 73 schools that will receive grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000.

TV’s musical sensation, “GLEE” THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON comes to Blu-ray and DVD September 13th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment packed with all 22 episodes and never-before-seen bonus features sure to incite fans everywhere to “Gleek Out.”

GLEE is a biting musical comedy about a group of eager and ambitious students who strive to outshine their singing competition to win Nationals while navigating the cruel halls of McKinley High, garnering an incredible 19 Emmy nominations – earning it the distinction of being the most-nominated series of the year – and four Emmy Awards.

If you have not seen this PSA it is hilarious and has an excellent message! If we enjoy shows like GLEE why are we allowing our public school systems across the country to kill the arts programs? Without the school arts programs we would have no GLEE. Please support them in their efforts to keep the arts in schools!

That’s right I am a gleek.

I wasn’t at first. Only watched a few episodes from the first season and scond season. While I liked the show I just had too many things on my DVR to keep up with Glee. So I deleted them from the recordings.

Then I sat down this weekend and watched the entire first season on Netflix streaming. Now I am kicking myself for deleting [amazon_link id=”B003L77GAQ” target=”_blank” ]season two[/amazon_link] from my DVR, because I will now have to wait until next week for it to come out on DVD.

Call me crazy (hahaha very funny), but I love this Wampa Rug. It is an officially licensed Star Wars product made by ThinkGeek.com (gotta love those geeks).

I already have the TaunTaun sleeping bag (and I have to make a lightsaber noise every time I open it too). It keeps me toasty warm on those cold Hoth winter nights.

Apparently the slave girl is not included with the Wampa Rug, sorry fan boys.

It is true that you learn something new every day. (You may not know you learned and you might forget it soon after you learn, but you do.) For me today I learned what 31337 was and no it isn’t the lottery numbers. I thought I was a geek, but there is a lot of […]
