I am a sucker for a good chick flick, and that is just what A United Kingdom is. I was excited to have a couple of gal pals over for a Sunday Brunch to watch it with me. I prepared some orange juice (and one of us had a mimosa but I won’t tattle on who it was) and some popcorn. We all really enjoyed the movie and all three of us shed a few tears. It is a touching film about love and overcoming obstacles.
Bambi has always been one of my absolute favorite Disney movies. I watched it many times growing up with my mom and sister – so naturally I was thrilled to be able to do it with my young daughters now. In order to help celebrate the 75th anniversary release of Bambi, we had a movie night under the stars! Now, we have family movie night every weekend, but this one was special. We even cuddled up outside with our pet bunny while watching, and just for the night, his name was Thumper instead of Riley.
Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favorite Disney movies – if not my favorite. I grew up watching it over and over. Belle was my favorite princess when I was younger, likely because I could always be found with my nose in a book too. Because of my love for this film, my daughters love it too. We have watched it many times and so naturally we were very excited to hear that Disney was making a Beauty and the Beast Live Action film.
Wonder Woman from DC Comics is a strong female role model and she will finally have a film of her own soon. Wonder Woman hits theaters this June and to celebrate The Hopping Bloggers have put together an awesome prize pack for one lucky reader! This prize pack is worth $70
At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, we see a cocoon. Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) essentially says she has created something incredible, and she will call him Adam. At this moment in the theater I nearly jumped out of my chair. My mind was BLOWN. I knew right away that she was referring to Adam Warlock, arguably one of the most powerful people in Marvel Comics. If you are wondering, just who is Adam, allow me to help you out. He is a big deal, and I am going to tell you why you should be excited to see him on the big screen.
My husband loves the original Newsies movie. So when we found out about Disney’s Newsies The Musical coming to Disney Movies Anywhere, we knew it was something we wanted to see. We were super thankful to be sent, not only a digital copy of the movie, but a family movie night kit to throw a great Newsies viewing party! It was a total blast watching the movie and celebrating in true Newsies fashion. I never dreamed my 4 and 5 year old would enjoy it as much as they did but they just loved the music!
If you are a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy films, take it from a comic book nerd like me, there are some books you just HAVE to read. If you want some great movie tie-ins and backgrounds on your favorite characters, these are the ones for you. Ideally, I would love to convince you all to go to your local comic book shop or look online and pick up every single issue that any of the Guardians appear in – but that is asking A LOT, I know. So I put together 5 of my favorite comic books (OK, a few are trade paperbacks) that any Marvel Cinematic Universe fan should pick up.
My daughters and 4 and 5 and they have been dying to see Rock Dog. We missed it in theaters because we happened to have a lot going on that month. We have a small theater in town and they actually only had it playing there for 2 weeks. I have been promising that we would watch it as soon as it came out on Blu-ray. Lucky for them (and me!) we were able to get an advance copy from Lionsgate – and it made their day! I mean, just look at those happy faces!
From the moment we saw the first trailer for The Space Between Us, my husband and I were very excited to see it. It looked like it would be very interesting. We love space related movies and shows – The Expanse is one of our favorite shows and this sort of reminded us of it. What seemed like a great story, a boy born on Mars whose body cannot survive the Earth’s atmosphere, was even better than both of us expected.
My girls are HUGE Cars fans. We have seen the first two films more times than I can count. My whole family is really excited for Cars 3 and are counting the days until June 16th! It comes out right before my oldest daughter’s 6th birthday so we plan to take her and a couple friends to see it. We have been watching the teasers and the new trailer for it over and over and getting excited. Whenever we go to Disney World, we always have to visit Lightning McQueen and Mater! If we don’t we would never hear the end of it from the girls!
