This may come as a total shock to you – but I am a big Marvel comic books fan. I’m kidding – that should not shock you. And if it does, well that you just don’t know me well enough yet. Stick around and you will figure me out. Over the years I have collected a lot of comic books, but X-Force has always been in my top 5. My favorite run is probably volume 3, which was 2008 to 2010, or Uncanny X-Force, which was the one right after that. The teams were amazing and filled with some of my favorite characters.
Avengers: Infinity War is probably the highest anticipated film of 2018! Marvel fans have been waiting years for this movie to hit theaters, and now the time has almost come! I still have to pinch myself to believe I will be seeing it on April 23rd – at the World Premiere in LA! Be sure to follow along with #InfinityWarEvent for all the inside information! Avengers: Infinity War releases to the public on April 27th and to help celebrate The Hopping Bloggers have put together an Avengers: Infinity War prize pack worth over $300 that everyone will want to win! Trust me, I sure do!
When we were on our most recent family vacation at Disney World, the newest Disney Channel Original Movie came out. I remember my husband and I cuddling up with our daughters on our bed at the Polynesian and watching Zombies. My girls are in to spooky things for some reason, and so this movie was right up their alley! Not too scary, but featuring one of their favorite things – ZOMBIES! Honestly, my husband and I really enjoyed this movie too.
We may not be seeing much of Hawkeye lately, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In fact, not seeing him in the Avengers: Infinity War trailers and posters could mean he is more important than we could even imagine. I have my own theories for him, and in less than two weeks we will know for sure. Sometimes I channel Hawkeye because I love archery. Where I live, there are not many places to shoot around, so I created my own target out of a few things I found in the basement. It was really easy, and did not take long at all.
Incredibles 2 hits theaters in June and after heading to Pixar Animation Studios to learn all about it, I can pretty much guarantee it is going to be the movie of the summer. I was totally blown away by all the work that goes into creating an animated feature film. Stay tuned for all the details on that later, but right now I want to tell you guys all about my experience at Pixar Animation Studios. This place is amazing. I knew it would be surreal to step on to the campus, but I wasn’t prepared for all the emotions I would feel. And all the awesome things I would see.
Recently, the most amazing email hit my inbox. Marvel was inviting me to attend the World Premiere of their most anticipated film yet – Avengers: Infinity War. If you know anything about me, you know I am a bit of a Marvel fan. So for me to be at the Infinity War Premiere – walking the red carpet – seeing the movie with the cast (as they watch it for the very first time) – WOW! I mean, WOW. There are really no other words to describe my excitement. But that is not all Marvel has in store for this group of 25 bloggers – oh no! And as if things couldn’t get any better – my birthday falls during the event. Talk about turning 34 in style!
Today three really important things happened in Marvel. Throughout the day, I saw some pretty amazing announcements. But I also noticed some things that perhaps, not all of you noticed. I am digging into my Marvel knowledge bank and sharing this all with you. I want to know your thoughts on these announcements – so please comment below and let me know!
If you know anything about me, you know that I am a HUGE Marvel fan. You also might know that I recently changed to the Keto way of eating. In just two and a half months, I have lost over thirty pounds and have a whole new lease on life! My energy and confidence are renewed! So when I decided to create a super fun Avengers: Infinity War themed dessert, I knew it had to be Keto friendly so that I could enjoy it too. So my husband and I put our heads together and came up with some amazingly delicious Keto approved Infinity Stone Macarons! Each macaron is only 2.5 net carbs – so enjoy, just don’t share them with Thanos!
My husband and I went to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi in theaters the weekend it came out. I wrote about my favorite parts of the film already, but honestly, I was itching for the blu-ray release. One of my favorite things about picking up movies on blu-ray is seeing all of the bonus features. I am a sucker for deleted scenes and commentary – I think that is one of the reason I enjoy attending interviews with the cast and crew of movies so much. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally available to take home tomorrow, and trust me, you don’t want to miss out on the bonus features!
One of the things I pride myself on is being a total geek. So of course when I heard that there was going to be a movie based on the book Ready Player One, I was thrilled. And then to discover that it was going to be directed by Stephen Spielberg! Icing on the cake. As the trailers were released, I got more and more excited. There were so many geek culture references just in the trailer, that I knew I would be lucky to catch half of them in the film. Ready Player One hits theaters on March 29th and you can win two tickets to go see it!
