Hey Teens, have you got a little sister? You know they love watching films with you. Here’s one I think you’ll be able to endure – and she’ll love!

Disney animation/adventure features the voices of: Mae Whitman as Tink, Christina Hendricks, Tom Hiddleston, Lucy Liu, Raven-Symoné, MeganHilty, Anjelica Huston. Director: Peggy Holmes. Release Date: April 1, 2014

FILM SYNOPSIS: From the world of Peter Pan comes The Pirate Fairy, a swashbuckling new adventure about Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated by Blue Pixie Dust and its endless possibilities. When Zarina’s wild ideas get her into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock, who make her captain of their ship. Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook himself.

Did you know that when a baby's hands are developing, they are initially flat plates until skin cells between fingers undergo programmed cell death, allowing the formation of five separate digits arranged in the unique human hand pattern! Who programmed that to happen? Not evolution, a mindless process.

TT Games has proven they listen to Family Friendly Gaming Nation. There was one major complaint against recent hand held Lego video games. The timer. That timer ruined the experience, rushed gamers, and generated mistakes. It also changed the feeling of exploration found in Lego video games.

What arguments are doubtful, hence inadvisable to use?

“Laminin: an amazing look at how Jesus is holding each of us together.” That one protein out of 100,000 is shaped like a cross in formalized diagrams (probably more like a sword with the side arms not at right angles) is not that surprising, just ‘by chance’. In any case, Jesus is sustaining our creation from God the Father’s right hand; He is no longer on the cross, so the theology is dubious too.

Review: "My Exotic Farm" - Wii U

Reviewed by Paul for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 86/100

My Exotic Farm is a sequel to My Farm. How can I say that? The intro little cut scene explains it all. You left the city to go be a farmer. You have done good with chickens, ducks, and cows. Now you want a new challenge. You go to a far away country to farm ostriches, hippos, elephants, and more. Looks like somewhere in Africa to me.

Reviewed by Frank for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 65/100

Krautscape has been the most anticipated racer to come out on the Personal Computer this year. It has an amazing look that would work on a home console. And that is probably where Krautscape should have been released. Sorry PC gamers this one would have worked better on the Wii U, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Yolanda has gotten me into the Duck Dynasty TV show. It impressed me so much that I searched for a Duck Dynasty video game. Upon not finding one I wrote an article about how I would like to play a Duck Dynasty video game. A few days later someone pointed out Duck Dynasty Battle of the Beards app on the iOS platform. Technically Duck Dynasty Battle of the Beards is a game, but not much of one.
