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!
National Super Hero Day 2019 is nearly here, and I have some great suggestions to help you celebrate! This day falls on April 28th, which is perfect timing for those that have been waiting for Avengers: Endgame to hit theaters. Of course, two days after it has already come out, the biggest fans will likely have already seen it. But there are other things you can do to channel your inner hero on this day.
Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger hooked me right from the first episode last season. One of my favorite things about it was the music, it was just so… perfect. Which was something I brought up in my interview with the cast and crew of Cloak and Dagger last year. They let me know that this is very planned out, which is obvious. Well, season two of this show is coming soon, but I was sent a press screener of the first two episodes and WOW! I was right back in it with Tandy and Tyrone – and loving this show! They pick right back up where we left off.
I called Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse the best animated film of all time, and I stand by that. My family and I saw it in theaters opening weekend and we loved it. So much more so than we could have ever imagined. The animation style is like nothing that has ever been done before and I felt like I was inside of a comic book. Spider-Verse is finally coming home on March 19th, and I received a super awesome package from Sony to celebrate. The better news? You can win one for yourself!
Two years ago my family went on an 7-day Disney Cruise which included the Star Wars Day at Sea. We had so much fun, that we decided to go again this year. We were pleasantly surprised at all of the changes that were made! Because of this, we had a whole new experience on board and we loved it. My daughters especially were really happy to see that there were new things to experience this time around.
I was so excited when Fallout 76 was announced. One of my favorite series ever, turning into an MMO format, what more could I want? Well, I have to admit, it was not at all what I had hoped for. I got bored. Fast. I got annoyed. Often. Because I am such a completionist, I don’t often get into a game right away, because I am usually finishing up another one. Red Dead Redemption 2 came out right before Fallout 76 and I planned to go back and forth between the two.
When Disney’s The Nutcracker and The Four Realms hit theaters last year, the timing never worked out for me to go see it. So I was really excited when an advance copy showed up at my doorstep to watch with my family. Not only is the movie magical and beautiful, the story is great as well. My young daughters were glued to the TV screen while it was on and loved every second of it. Then we had to check out my favorite part of a home release, the bonus features. Trust me when I say The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is a must pick up for families!
