Earth To Echo now out on Blu-ray and DVD! #giveaway #echoinsiders


We took the kids to see this movie in the movie theater back over the summer.  It reminded me of the 2014 version of E.T.  We had even given away some free screening passes.  The kids loved it and so did Paul and I.  It is a great family movie for movie night! Earth to Echo is a tale told through the eyes of Tuck, Munch and Alex, a trio of pals who make an out-of-this-world discovery. The best friends venture out of their neighborhood to find the true meaning of friendship. After receiving signals on their phones, they meet Echo, a small, but amazingly energetic, alien trying to make his way back to his home planet. As they race to help their new friend, the boys will discover that little Echo has touched their hearts in unexpected ways and changed their lives forever...
