While in LA for the Dog Days World Premiere, I found out I was going to be talking with some of the cast. I was super excited to be chatting with the stars of the film: Nina Dobrev, Vanessa Hudgens, Adam Pally, Eva Longoria, Tone Bell, and the Director (who also has a small role in the film), Ken Marino. This was a group interview which shows us just how much chemistry these guys really have. It was so much fun, Adam, of course, had us cracking up. But Nina got in some pretty great zingers as well. Read on about 10 fun facts I learned about the movie and the cast, in this great interview!
I have to admit, I went in to Dog Days thinking that it would be a cute movie. I figured I would chuckle a little bit and be entertained, but I never expected to really love it. Dog Days exceeded all of my expectations. It is a hilarious, heartfelt, family film that is a must see for any dog lover. And if you don’t love dogs going in to this film, you will coming out of it. In fact, you might just run to your nearest rescue and adopt one.
When I got invited to attend the Dog Days premiere in California, I was really excited. I have two adorable dogs and I thought the movie looked super cute (stay tuned for a full review tomorrow!). One of my favorite parts about this event ended up being the pre-party on the green carpet at the premiere! It was so much fun. Whoever planned it did a great job because despite the heat, I had a fantastic time. From a candy bar, to dog themed food, to an actual dog pit – there were so many amazing things to do!
Avengers: Infinity War was released this week on digital, and is coming home to DVD and Blu-ray on August 14th. I have said it many times before but one of my favorite things about purchasing a film like this is the bonus features. Deleted scenes, gag reels, and commentary really give you a feel for the movie that you didn’t have before. So when I was sent Infinity War, before even watching the movie again, I tackled the bonus features. Now I am going to tell you if they are worth the watch.

Avengers: Infinity War Bonus Features + Win A MARVELous Prize Pack from GameStop! | #InfinityWar #Avengers
Avengers: Infinity War is now out on digital (eek!) and comes home on blu-ray August 14th. One of my favorite things about a movie’s home release is all the bonus features that we get. From gag reels, to deleted scenes, to commentary – there are so many amazing things we can learn about our favorite films. When I first saw the list of bonus features that would be a part of the Avengers: Infinity war home release, I was floored. Each and every one sounded more exciting and amazing than the last. It looks like we will really get to dive in to Thanos’ background. But for me, the director commentary is where it is at.
I took my whole family to see Teen Titans GO! To the Movies opening weekend. We laughed and genuinely had a good time. This is a fun movie that is good for the whole family. Everyone will have a good time. Yes, it is predictable, yes, there is potty humor, yes the ending might make you choke on your soda – but is an all around fun film that I recommend for the whole family.
Disney’s Christopher Robin hits theaters next weekend and you KNOW I will be sitting in the theater with my family opening weekend. I grew up loving Winnie the Pooh and all his friends from 100 Acre Wood. In fact, when I had my first daughter, we decorated her nursery fully in Winnie the Pooh decor – complete with murals on the walls. Something about these characters really tugs at my heart strings. As you can see in my reaction video below, the extended sneak peek even got me a little teary. “Silly old bear” did me in. To help celebrate Christopher Robin, print your own coloring pages and activities. Give your kids hours of fun with Winnie the Pooh & his friends!
You don’t have to look any further than my right arm to know that I’m a huge fan of Guardians of the Galaxy. I’ve been a fan of the comic books since I was a little girl, and I was skeptical about how it would be adapted for theaters. I was thrilled to see the version that James Gunn brought to the big screen in 2014. During the filming of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, I was lucky enough to visit the set and interview Gunn for the first time. I interviewed him again during Vol. 2’s press junket. During each encounter, I was impressed by his vision, his talent, and his kindness.
San Diego Comic-Con is this weekend and I wanted to be there more than anything but it is Grandmother’s surprise 90th birthday party and that takes precedence. Boo. I will be trying my best to keep up with trailers (check out my YouTube channel for all the trailer reaction videos) and news. I will be sharing what I can here, as quickly as possible. So if you don’t want to miss any of my reaction videos, bookmark this page and come periodically.
