The "Divergent" Soundtrack Is Diverse in Great Tunes!
By: Sarah Messer
The much anticipated movie Divergent, which is the first installment of the trilogy, released its first soundtrack on March 11, 2014. The first single released was "Find You" a dance track by Zedd, Matthew Koma, and Miriam Bryant. It is a great opening track and sets the flow for the rest of the album.
If you are a fan of Ellie Goulding then you will really enjoy this because she has three songs (four if you have the deluxe edition) and each song brings something different for a diverse listen. "Beating Heart" is definitely the standout track of the four. Another great standout is "Fight For You" by Pia Mia, and Chance the Rapper. This is a great pop/dance ballad!
There is definitely a variety of artists featured on this album including Snow Patrol, A$AP Rocky, Skrillex and M83. The big difference for this album is that is definitely an up-tempo, dancy album, whereas most soundtracks have leaned more to the indie/folk sound, so you may be surprised when you give it a listen for the first time. Check it out now!

"Alexander and the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" Will Make Your Day A Little Better!
Alexander Cooper (Ed Oxenbould) is having a bad day. To make matters worse, it seems like no one in his family understands because their lives are just perfect. Well, that’s about to change.
His Dad (the very funny Steve Carell) has been unemployed for months and has been acting as a stay-at-home Dad. He finally lines up a job interview with a company that he would really like to work with, only there is no one to watch Baby Trevor. He ends up having to take the baby with him to the interview. And things just go downhill from there.
Mom, Kelly, (Jennifer Garner) has a job with a big time publishing company and this day is very important. Celebrity Dick Van Dyke of Mary Poppins’ fame is doing a reading of a new book that is about to hit stands. Only moments before his big reading, Kelly discovers a very big, embarrassing typo. It’s too late, America’s Sweetheart, Mr. Van Dyke, proceeds to read it out loud anyway. And so begins a very bad day for Kelly.
Alexander’s perfect older brother Anthony (played by Dylan Minnette) has the perfect girlfriend (Bella Thorne as Celia) and the perfect Prom planned. All that stands in the way of him and the perfect night is a little thing like taking the Driver’s test and getting his license. No problem right? Wrong! You know that saying, “Anything that can go wrong, will?” Maybe Dylan isn’t so perfect after all.
Emily is the only girl among the Cooper children (played by the always on point, Kerris Dorsey). She has been practicing very hard because she has the lead in the school’s production of “Peter Pan.” Today of all days, Emily has a cold. She takes a little cough syrup to get her through. And then a little more. Let’s just say that this Peter Pan is flying a little higher than she should be. Hilarious disaster ensues.
Anyone who has had a bad day knows that feeling alone in your misery makes everything worse. Somehow, having a family to understand and help get you through it makes everything better.
“Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day” is a treat that the whole family can enjoy together. Sure, a lot of the big laughs can be found in the movie’s trailer; however, there are enough surprises to keep you laughing when you watch it at home or on the go!. This film might just make your worst bad day look no so bad after all.
Bonus material on the Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack includes hilarious outtakes from the making of the movie, Walkabout: A Video Diary, a music video from The Vamps and more!

Million Dollar Arm Hits a Home-Run With Movie Goers! Bring The Heart-Warming Story Home on Blu-ray or DVD!
Looking for a feel-good movie to share with the whole family? "Million Dollar Arm" steps up to the plate! Based on a true story, the film introduces viewers to JB Bernstein, a once successful sports agent whose career is on a downward spiral. JB is played by "Mad Men's" Jon Hamm who manages to lose himself in this role as well.
Trying to salvage his career, JB comes up with a seemingly far-fetched plan to try to discover new baseball talent in India. By producing a reality competition called "The Million Dollar Arm," he meets Rinku and Dinesh and brings them back to America to learn to play baseball.
The young men handle the culture shock in completely different ways which makes their transition different even though they are going through the same experiences. Also changing, is JB who now has the responsibility of guiding two young men and helping them refine their talent. The trio's relationship proves that family doesn't always mean the parent's who gave birth to you.
Rinku and Dinesh come to life on the big screen thanks to Suraj Sharma (Rinku) and Madhur Mittal (Dinesh). Both actors, native to India, come from high profile projects like "Life of Pi," (Suraj) and "Slumdog Millionaire" (Madhur), but blend beautifully into this film.
What's a good movie without a little romance? "MDA" has that too! Lake Bell plays "Brenda," a doctor who is a tenant of JB's guest house. Can JB's new outlook on life also include settling down with a wife?
Sometimes movies just get everything right. "Million Dollar Arm" sure is close! Well-acted, well-written, and well-produced, the film certainly inspires those who are willing to work hard and dream big. Anything is possible in this film and that is sure to leave a lasting impression on audiences everywhere.
Bonus material on the Blu-ray + DVD Combo pack includes a look at the training the actors went through to prepare for their roles. There's also a special "Learning How To Pitch a Baseball" featurette. You can pick up your copy at most places where home entertainment is sold. You can also order on-line here:
