The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec DVD Review and #Giveaway

        On August 13, 2013, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with EuropaCorp, released THE EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ADÈLE BLANC-SEC on DVD and on two-disc Blu-ray™ Combo Pack! I was pretty excited to see this one as it looked quite unique!

        The synopsis says "The year is 1912. This is the story of an intrepid young reporter Adèle Blanc-Sec and her quest for the power of life over death. Her journey would take her to distant lands to face many dangers beneath the sands. She will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, including sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes.

Meanwhile in Paris, a 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg on display in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the creature subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adele Blanc-Sec, whose adventures include many more extraordinary surprises…"

        I really enjoyed this movie, what's not to like about tomb raiding, mummies, scientists, pterodactyls, and death sentences?!  A story about a strong determined young lady who isn't discouraged when faced with challenges. Adele is able to overcome all these obstacles in order to complete her mission.

        Despite the fact that my 2 year old fell asleep and my 4 year old didn't really like the movie, I really enjoyed it myself and can't wait to tell more people about this movie.  Randi's boys are for sure going to be in love with this one as its right up their families ally!

Recommendation:  I thoroughly enjoyed watching this and thought it was pretty cute too!  I wish the girls had been more into it but maybe next time around when they aren't as tired they'll get into it!
