DVD Review - Bolt (and U Rock 2)


Synopsis - Bolt (voiced by John Travolta) is the star of the biggest show in Hollywood. The only problem is, he thinks the whole thing is real. When the super dog is accidentally shipped to New York City and separated from Penny (voiced by Miley Cyrus), his beloved co-star and owner, Bolt springs into action to find his way home.

Together with his hilarious new sidekicks Rhino (voiced by Mark Walton) – Bolt’s #1 Fan – and a street-smart cat named Mittens (voiced by Susie Essman), Bolt sets off on an amazing journey where he discovers he doesn’t need super powers to be a hero.

Fun, fast-paced and with plenty of hi-jinks to keep the kids (and their parents!) entertained. BOLT is one of the most enjoyable movies I've seen in recent times.

Disney.com recently announced the launch of U Rock 2, a stand-out promotion that gives fans the opportunity to create their own music videos set to songs from popular Disney artists and post their original videos on the U Rock site (www.Disney.com/URock). The most popular U Rock video finalists, voted on by fans, will win the ultimate rock star experience including a trip to Los Angeles, an in-studio “take over” at Radio Disney, a visit to the set of a Disney Channel show, and more.

This is the second annual U Rock event on Disney.com. In 2008 thousands of fan videos were uploaded and millions of fans rated and commented on their favorite videos. New this year, fans will be able to watch and vote for their favorite videos via mobile phone by texting UROCK to DISNEY (347639).*

Song selections that can be downloaded from the U Rock 2 site include:

· “One And The Same” by Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez from the Disney Channel Playlist CD, with exclusive music video available on the Princess Protection Program DVD

· “Paranoid“ by Jonas Brothers from their upcoming album “Lies, Vines and Trying Times”

· “Hey” by Mitchel Musso from his self-titled album “Mitchel Musso”

· “Ready to Rock” by Steve Rushton featured in the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures’ film“G-Force”

Fans can upload videos on Disney.com now through July 12, 2009. Finalists in each of the U Rock 2 categories will be announced on July 17, 2009 and fans can then vote for their top video picks through July 31, 2009. Voting categories include “Rock of Fame” which will be awarded to the best overall video for each song, “Tricked Out” recognizing the video with the best graphics, editing and special effects, ”Sweet Groove All Star” recognizing the fan with the best dance moves, “Mega Pipes” which honors best singing and “Aww…some!” which highlights the cutest rockers.

U Rock was a huge success for us last year so we’re bringing it back bigger and better this year, with an all new selection of top songs from Disney artists,” said Paul Yanover, executive vice president and managing director, Disney Online. “Once again, we’re inviting fans to become a part of the entertainment we offer on Disney.com.”

Update - The finalists for U Rock 2 have been announced and fans can now go vote for their favorite.

Voting will end August 3rd on Disney.com/Urock as well as via mobile phone by texting UROCK to DISNEY (347639)*, so be sure to drop by now and exercise your right to rock!
