Must Have: Angry Birds Plushies

angrybirdplush.jpgpigbird.jpg

Rovio's Angry Birds has been downloaded over 100 million times so it was only a question of time before licensed plushies came out. Case in point, both the Bird and Pig are not only fun friends to have around but will make annoying sounds when patted on top. Each is 5.5 x 4.8 x 4.5" and recommended for ages 1 and up. We guess it won't be long before the company makes RC Birds. Ka-ching.

Must Have: Robot Movies

Just when you thought you were safe from a futuristic horde of creatures in evil robot suits in the Australian desert, The Time Guardian appears. The 1987 film features Dean Stockwell and a very young and fresh Carrie Fisher. "It is not just our fate that lies in peril but that of all humanity."Star Wars" it ain't but if you like your sci-fi with a touch of morality, this is a good rainy day flick.

On the other hand, if you like your movies current and animated, Megamind is finally out on DVD. Lots of evil pet robots running around, robotic suits and a very cutesy Minion. Not the best of its kind over the last few years (with movie references intended for adults) but still, Will Farrel is in his element. (We love the way he pronounces "Metrocity" with an accent on the second syllable.)
