So I am a horrible geek. Just starting out with that. I did not get a chance to see Solo: A Star Wars Story in theaters. I could make up all the excuses, about babysitters and children, but the bottom line is we just didn’t get to see it. My husband and I have really been looking forward to it’s home release date and last night it showed up on our doorstep, along with the Ultimate Solo Movie and Game Night kit! My girls got in on the fun, and were so excited to see lots of Chewie items. They love Chewie, but really, how could they not.

I am a giant Marvel fan and I am totally raising my kids to be Marvel fans too. Recently I got a screener for Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors and just could not wait to share with with my girls. I have been reading the new Marvel Rising comic books which feature Squirrel Girl and Ms. Marvel, so I was really excited to see them in this movie. Plus, who doesn’t love America Chavez and Patriot?! Quake, actually voiced by Chloe Bennet, had me pretty darn excited too because I LOVE her in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
I have been reading to my daughters since they were in my womb. It is something I started while pregnant and have continued to do every single day and night. Now, my daughters read to me a lot of the time, which is bittersweet. Recently, Disney Hyperion sent us three of their new books, and these have all become fast favorites in our home. I think they are all books that every family should own – and here is why!
It should come as no surprise to you that The Gifted is one of my favorite shows on TV. I am a big fan of, well, pretty much anything Marvel. And if you didn’t know, The Gifted features some of my favorite X-Men, and is totally worth a binge if you haven’t watched it yet (or even if you have). Season 2 will premiere on Tuesday, September 25th – the same day that Season 1 comes to DVD!
I live in a house full of gamers, so we are turning on our gaming consoles nearly every single night. One of our favorite series has been the Scribblenauts games. My daughters love using their imaginations to create the silliest things – and I love seeing them use their imaginations. Earlier this week, the Scribblenauts Mega Pack was released. This is a new collection of two hit titles featuring upgraded versions of Scribblenauts Unlimited and Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure. Why should you pick up this version? Because there is new content included for both titles of course!
I know the story of Freaky Friday well. I remember seeing several versions of the play when I was a young girl, so when I found out the latest Disney Original Movie was going to be a new take on it, I couldn’t wait to share it with my daughters. From the first moment they saw the previews, they were hooked! And we counted down the days until it aired on The Disney Channel in August. On September 25th, you can bring this super fun movie home to watch time and time again!
Welcome to my pull list for new comic book day September 19th, 2018 (9/19/18). You probably know that I am quite the comic book collector. This week has a ton of comics that I have been waiting for coming out! I am really excited about a lot of the titles that will be out today – which ones will you be picking up? Here are the ones that are catching my eye…
OMG, OMG, OMG…. we FINALLY got it! A FULL LENGTH trailer for Captain Marvel. AND a poster. I can’t. I love her. Carol Danvers has been one of my favorites for a super (no pun intended) long time. I adored her as Ms. Marvel and was thrilled to see her pick up the Captain Marvel mantel. When I found out she was going to be the first solo female superhero lead for Marvel, I immediately thought about how much she deserved it. Now we have seen actual footage – and I might die.
You probably already know this, but I have two dogs – a pug and a puggle. They are 3 and 5 years old and a major part of our family. You know they have geeky names too – Khaleesi and Sansa from Game of Thrones of course! Since they are a special part of our family, we treat them with only the best of everything. That is why we recently started using Rufus & Coco dog grooming products. And we couldn’t be happier with the results!
When I opened up YouTube this morning and saw an alert for the Mary Poppins Returns trailer, my first thought was – is it real? I had to check and see that it was from Disney’s official channel because I just wasn’t expecting it. When I realized that the full trailer was indeed here, I was so excited. This trailer hit me right in the feels. Way more than I expected. And I sobbed like a little baby.
