The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water – Sure to Entertain Your Younger Kids

SpongeBobPoster

Nickelodeon’s lead character, SpongeBob stars in this new feature film which offers up a diabolical pirate who steals the secret Krabby Patty formula and SpongeBob and his friends must travel to the surface in order to get it back. Starring the voice talent of Tom Kenny and Antonio Banderas, this is a great film to share with your younger viewers. KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Samantha A. comments, “This movie has everything you would want to see in a film. It is funny, family-friendly, unpredictable and down-right entertaining.” Her full review is below.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

Samantha Alexander, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 11

In the movie Sponge Out of Water, SpongeBob and his gang are back! And this time, they are bigger and better in their all-new movie. They go beyond the ocean floor and onto land and look for the secret krabby patty formula that they have been keeping a secret forever but suddenly has vanished into thin air, right in front of SpongeBobs eyes.

In this film, you see more of your favorite characters for example, Patrick Star voiced by Bill Fagerblake, Mr.Krabs voiced by Clancy Brown, Squidward voiced by Rodger Bumpass, Sandy Cheeks voiced by Carolyn Lawrence and last, but not least, SpongeBob SquarePants, voiced by Tom Kenny. All of these people nail it in this movie and fit these roles perfectly, just like they do in the TV show.

This movie has everything you would want to see in a film. It is funny, family-friendly, unpredictable and down-right entertaining. I also really enjoyed this movie because it is two stories that meet when SpongeBob goes out of the water. One story shows a pirate (Antonio Banderas) telling the story of SpongeBob, and the other shows SpongeBob and his crew coming to the surface on their quest to find the formula.

Something special about this movie is that it is based on the very popular original kid’s television show created by Stephen Hillenburg.  It includes the TV show’s animation but becomes only half animation for the parts where they are out of water. I really like this element because it is different from other movies that are only animation. Also it is interesting to see SpongeBob in a different form that’s not animated.

I’m giving this movie 5 out 5 stars because it is hilarious and unpredictable and that I would definitely see it again.  I recommend this movie for ages 6 to 60 because it is classic SpongeBob SquarePants.

Say “I Do” to Energy-Saving, Functional Faceplates for the Home and Office Valentine’s Collection gives you a new Love Connection to Plug Into

Living Plug_Valentine's Day_With Phone

It’s almost Valentine’s Day! – San Francisco based LivingPlug delivers something sweeter than a box of hearts and longer lasting than a bouquet of flowers with its energy-efficient, functional faceplates collection celebrating Cupid’s favorite day. The INLET is a three-prong adapter plus USB port that plugs into any standard outlet in the home or office. The Company’s Valentine’s Day Collection brings a burst of color and the opportunity to personalize a “Will You Marry Me” for a more creative proposal this year.

Founded by college friends and business partners, LivingPlug is set to innovate the overlooked outlet by bringing a solution to market that reduces energy bills while increasing design opportunities in the home.  “Vampire Charges” are the hidden costs incurred when electronics stay plugged in when not in use yet still tap into energy at the source.

“The average home has 75 outlets which account for up to 25% of the energy bill and detract from home design,” says co-founder and architect Charley Curran. “We put a new face on the outlet and improved it by including a kill switch to help homeowners reduce electrical bills while adding decorative accents around the home,” adds Mr. Curran.

With hundreds of images to choose from, the Company’s Valentine’s collection features original designs from artists it partners with plus customers can DIY their love connection this year with a more personalized design.

The INLET and Faceplates are sold separately but work together, each is priced at $25 with bundle sets available through the website www.livingplug.com. Additionally, LivingPlug is available on Amazon and the company will launch a line via Walmart before spring. To learn more and preview the collection, please visit livingplug.
