This past weekend the teaser trailer for the reimagining of Disney’s Pete’s Dragon was released and all I can say is wow. The poster was released just a few days ago and I knew at that moment that the movie was going to be just as good as I hoped. The poster is incredible (see it below) and now the trailer has me even more excited. I must admit, I did see some of this footage at the D23 Expo last summer and so I knew what to expect. But it was so amazing to be able to watch it again (and again and again) this time. Pete’s Dragon was one of my favorite movies growing up and I have since watched it with my daughters. They are just as excited as I am about the reimagining and I am planning on taking them to go see it when it flies into theaters everywhere August 12th, 2016!
Season Finale of THE X-FILES airs Monday, Feb. 22 @ 8/7c on FOX! Conclusion of…
I went to see Deadpool this weekend and I just loved it. I am a huge Deadpool fan – his comic has been one of my favorites since as long as I can remember. If you read the comics, you know that he is the only comic book character that actually knows he is a comic book character. I love this about him. It makes for great narration and some incredible Deadpool moments. The film is done in the same way which makes it, well, perfect! And if you know anything about Deadpool then you know Ryan Reynolds was born to portray him. The casting was incredible. The jokes and references were spot on (“McAvoy or Stewart? These time lines are confusing.”) and I couldn’t have been more pleased with this film.
When I was at the D23 Expo last summer I learned about the reimagining of Disney’s Pete’s Dragon. We saw some early footage and WOW, I was instantly excited. I must admit that I was a little nervous at first because I love the original Pete’s Dragon. I have watched it more times than I can count and it is one of my favorite all time movies. So of course it can be scary when a company decides to reimagine something you love. But from what I have seen, this movie is going to be incredible! There is a stellar cast and I cannot wait for it to come out this summer (August 12th to be exact!). The poster that Disney just released is amazing and has me even more pumped for the movie (and check out the motion poster below!).
My family and I recently took a trip to Ottawa, Canada for the Winterlude festival (more coming on that in a post tomorrow). Little did we all know that a part of the activities would be themed for SNOWTIME! – a movie that we had waiting at our house for us to screen from Shout Kids. I only wish that we had received it before we left so we could have been more familiar with it as we were exploring all the stuff they had set up. There were snowmen with the clothing and faces of the characters, snowball fight arenas set up, and they were even giving away pins with the title (in French) of the movie and the characters on it. My girls love theirs!
As most of you know I am a giant Marvel fan. I have been reading the comics all my life and so I have been loving the movies that Disney has been releasing. They are doing a fantastic job with the characters and story lines. When they announced Guardians of the Galaxy, I was thrilled. Guardians is probably my favorite Marvel comic book ever. My husband and I have been reading it together for years now and we love everything about it. Star-Lord is one of my favorite characters of all time, for so many reasons. And Chris Pratt played him perfectly. In fact, that movie was cast to perfection – I have zero complaints and that says a lot from someone who has been reading the series since I can remember.
I remember seeing P!nk way back when she toured with *NSYNC – yes, I loved (OK still love) them and I may have seen them perform in 10+ states but hey, we are getting off track here. The bottom line is I have seen P!nk perform live several times and she is just incredible. I love her stuff and will be a fan of hers for life. So of course when I found out that she was partnering with Disney’s Alice Through The Looking Glass, I was thrilled! I loved the first movie and have been dying to see this one since it was announced. Johnny Depp is incredible as the Mad Hatter (when is he not incredible?) and the footage that I saw at the D23 Expo made me even more excited for it. He is going to be more or less the main focus of this movie and I for one, cannot wait for it. Watch the video below (and check out the brand new poster above!) and just try to tell me that you are not excited about it too – you won’t be able to. I love that Sacha Baron Cohen is joining the cast. He is a brilliant actor! Read on to learn more about P!nk’s contribution to the film.

I am so excited about the movie Zootopia! I have promised my 3 and 4 year old that we will be at the theater opening night and I cannot wait! Ever since I saw clips from the movie at D23 Expo this summer, I knew it was going to be a great family film. It is sure to keep everyone laughing! I mean, have you seen that sloth clip? HILARIOUS! The latest three clips that have been released have me dying to see more. Thankfully, we are less than a month away from the release (March 4, 2016). Check out these clips and I dare you to tell me that you did not laugh!
I have been dying to see Deadpool since the moment I found out it was going to be a thing. I knew right away that Ryan Reynolds would be the perfect Deadpool. I have read just about everyone one of the comics and Ryan’s quick wit makes him the ideal actor to play the Merc with a Mouth. But who would play the supporting roles? I was thrilled when I heard that Colossus would be a character in this film because he is one of my favorite characters from the comics. Something about him – maybe the love for his little sister or quite possibly his brute strength has made him stand out to me.
