Available on DVD: NOW
Available on Digital HD: January 9,2015

Pioneering American music icon James Brown goes from rags to rhythm-and-blues royalty in Get On Up, a spectacular portrait of the life of the charismatic performer, debuting on Digital HD on December 9, 2014 and on DVD and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack including Blu-ray™, DVD, and Digital HD with Ultraviolet™ on January 6, 2015 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Director Tate Taylor follows up his Oscar-nominated breakout film, The Help, with an explosively soul-packed story filled with stunning remixes of Brown’s original recordings, dramatic recreations of the singer’s memorable stage moments and a mesmerizing star performance by Chadwick Boseman (42) as “The Godfather of Soul.” The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack also features over an hour of bonus material, including never-before-seen interviews with the filmmakers and cast, extended and deleted scenes and additional unforgettable musical performances.

Get On Up stars Chadwick Boseman (42, Draft Day) in yet another career-making performance as Brown, with a stellar supporting cast that includes Oscar®-nominee Viola Davis (The Help, “How to Get Away with Murder”), Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer (The Help, Fruitvale Station), Nelsan Ellis (The Butler, “True Blood”), Oscar-nominee Dan Aykroyd (Driving Miss Daisy, Ghostbusters), Craig Robinson (This is the End, Hot Tub Time Machine) and Jill Scott (Why Did I Get Married, Baggage Claim).

James Brown’s ferocity, talent and ambition propelled him from his hardscrabble South Carolina roots to some of the most prestigious musical venues in the world, earning him a reputation as “the hardest working man in show business.” Get On Up takes audiences behind the scenes of his brilliant, six-decade-long career for an uncensored look at the turbulent forces that drove the legendary performer.

The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack includes a Blu-ray™, DVD and DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet™.

• Blu-ray™ unleashes the power of your HDTV and is the best way to watch movies at home, featuring 6X the picture resolution of DVD, exclusive extras and theater-quality surround sound.
• DVD offers the flexibility and convenience of playing movies in more places, both at home and away.
• DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet™ lets fans watch movies anywhere on their favorite devices. Users can instantly stream or download.

unnamed-15We recently had the opportunity to bring in the Thanksgiving holiday with Alid’s and trying out their HOT #ALDIPairings from their 2014 Holiday Catalog! We hosted a “Virtal Party” in which myself, friend and family got together “virtually” and chatted it up about the various wines, cheeses, etc in Aldi’s holiday catalog! Check out our chat hereWhat fun and we didn’t have to leave the comforts of our own homes ;)

aldi1The catalog has TONS of holiday products and foods to choose from, including Holiday Appetizers, Cheese & Crackers, Meats and Main Dishes, Side Dishes, Sweets… and most importantly….Wine!! You’ll even find pairing suggestions for the various wines to see what foods to pair with the wines of your choice :)

With the LARGE variety of products to choose from, some of the wines and accompaniments that were tasted at our “virtual party” were…

Vintage Riesling Sweet Wine for Dessert

2014-12-04During the party, each participant was able to purchase a few items from the holiday catalog and then share their thoughts and experiences with each other via Google Hangout! We had the opportunity to chat a bit about what pairings we liked, what wines we liked and what items we’d purchase in the future.  And the best part about the entire party?!? The PRICES!!! Most of the wines purchased in this party were $8 or LESS!!!

  • Party Hits (not to be paired together): the Reisling Wines (both), Specialty Selected Gouda Cheese, Savoritz Butter Crackers and Turtles
  • Party Misses: Specialty Selected Dry Salami…yeah, that was it ;)

*they actually had a “Wine Salami” in the catalog that may have been a bit better of an option for this.
