Maleficent is one of my all time favorite villains, so I was thrilled to see her second movie was being moved up to 2019. We just got the teaser trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil – and it was all I could have hoped for and more!
My whole family has been dying to see Detective Pikachu since the moment we heard about it. We are HUGE Pokemon fans.
If you know me, you know I love to be scared. Why? I have no idea, but I do. One movie that terrified me as a child was IT. Of course I went to see the remake – and that scared the heck out of me too. Pennywise was creepy in 1990 — but this new version?! No thank you. But also YES. Because he is amazingly scary. When I first heard that IT: Chapter Two was going to happen, I wasn’t sure what to think. Pennywise is literally the reason I hate clowns. But we just got the IT: Chapter Two trailer – and all I can say is WOW.
My family loves Pokemon – so you know we were thrilled when we first heard about Detective Pikachu! Not only do we play the trading card game, we play the video games, and we collect all the toys. We were all shocked by the trailers and just how amazing Ryme City looks. I mean, I would give just about anything to visit there and hang out with real Pokemon. Now I get to give four tickets to one lucky reader so they can see the movie PLUS an adorable prize pack!
My daughters have been wanting to see UglyDolls since the first trailer came out – and we finally were able to go see it. They loved it. Me? Not so much. There were several things that felt off about the film, although the story itself is cute, with good lessons to be learned. It seemed like a not-as-fun combination of Trolls and Toy Story. Will I see it again? Nope. Will I buy it for the girls to watch over and over? Probably.
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is now available on Netflix. Zac Efron plays Ted Bundy in this movie and while he does an amazing job, the movie itself is just okay. It is filled with insanely talented actors, but the plot itself is not compelling. Sure, it is taken from real life, but there could have been less court and more murder. OK, maybe I am just a morbid person? This review might take you by surprise – just as the film took me by surprise.
When The Russo Brothers told the interwebs that the official Avengers: Endgame Spoiler Ban was going to end today, I should have known that meant a new Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer. Especially when it was put out there that the next trailer would contain Endgame spoilers. I also should have known this meant I was going to cry watching the trailer and discussing it after – but ya know, I thought my wounds were healed. Spoiler alert: they weren’t. Because I have a thing with needing to dissect Marvel trailers, here is my Spider-Man: Far From Home Official trailer breakdown – feel free to let me know of things you found in the comments that I missed!
May the 4th is upon us and to help celebrate one of my favorite holidays, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Star Wars memes! Everyone loves a good meme, I know I do. It was hard to narrow down my favorites (honestly this post could have gone on and on), but I think I did a decent job. If you celebrate May the 4th, let me know how you do it. This year, Free Comic Book Day IS May 4th, so there is a lot of geeky awesome going on in one day!
Pokemon fans have been waiting for Detective Pikachu to hit theaters for nearly a year now – and the time has finally come! I know my family has been waiting what feels like forever for this movie – so we are HYPED! If you missed my Detective Pikachu Trailer reaction, you definitely want to check it out! To help celebrate this release, The Hopping Bloggers have come together to bring our readers a Detective Pikachu prize pack!
The X-Men are some of my favorite characters in Marvel Comics. I am not going to lie, I am HYPED that Marvel Studios now has control over this franchise. Some of the X-Men films have been….sub par. The final Fox owned film, Dark Phoenix, is coming to us this June, and I am mildly excited. It seems like every trailer we see, it gets better and better. To prepare those of you who know nothing about the Phoenix force, here is a list of 5 comics you should check out before seeing this movie in theaters.
