Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger hooked me from the very first few minutes. Admittedly, I am not a giant fan of the comic book characters but I love Freeform shows so I wanted to give this one a chance. Boy am I glad I did. Each episode gets better and better – literally. Just when I think there is no possible way that they can top an episode, they do. And they are the master of leaving us with a cliffhanger and making us wait a week to find out what is going to happen. While in LA for the Ant-Man and The Wasp event, I got an advanced screening of episode five. No shocker when I say it was the best one yet. After it ended, in walked the creator/showrunner Joe Poleski, Andrea Roth (Melissa Bowen), Miles Mussenden (Otis Johnson), and the Vice President of Original Programming at MARVEL TV, Tom Lieber. We chatted with them about how the show came about and what we might see in the future.
If I was forced to sit down and rank the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies from my favorite to least favorite, Ant-Man and The Wasp would be in my top 5. Easy. I would never have expected that before seeing this movie because my top 5 are pretty solid. Or so I thought. This movie brings fun and humor, but also a badass female superhero who kicks some serious butt. Not to mention the female antagonist (girl power am I right ladies?). Ant-Man and The Wasp brings it to the big screen guys. Avengers: Infinity War is a hard act to follow, but this movie did it perfectly. Filled with humor and fun that doesn’t take away from the plot – Ant-Man and The Wasp is a must see family film. There, I said it.
The first movie my family ever saw in theaters together was Big Hero 6. Our youngest daughter was pretty young (just under 2) but she was mesmerized by Baymax. I knew right then that we had a little Disney fan on our hands! This quickly became one of the most played movies in our house, so when the animated series was announced a while back, we were all excited! Big Hero 6 The Series is so much fun – for the whole family! And now that the series has been released on DVD, we decided to throw the ultimate viewing party!
The opening of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has set sales of dinosaur-themed toys stampeding! Dinosaurs have always been popular with kids, but now it is growing. I know my girls love dinosaurs! Here are just a few dinosaur toys that are sure to have your kids excited. Fill your summer with dinosaur fun!
While at Niagara Falls Comic Con this year, I was able to attend a panel with the one and only John Ratzenberger! Not did he play Cliff, one of my favorite characters on Cheers, he also voices many characters for Disney/Pixar. If you know anything about me, you know how much I love Disney and Pixar films, so this was a great experience. At the panel, I learned so much from him and about him.
My husband and I recently took our first vacation without the kids since we had them. If you are keeping count that means it had been seven years before our last couples vacation. That is a long time, too long really. We went to Hawaii for only 4 days, but it was just what we needed. We needed to be a couple again, we needed to us again, and we needed to reconnect. The girls were home safe with his parents and we went to the big island of Hawaii to enjoy ourselves. We did went on adventures during the day and probably drank way too much at night. But we had no responsibilities and it was amazing. If you find yourself on the big island with your significant other, here are five things I highly recommend you check out!
As you probably know by now, I have two young daughters. About a year ago, my husband and I decided it was time to get healthy. We wanted to be around for our daughters long into their lives. We cut out a lot of sweets and bad for you foods, and focused on healthy eating in our home. Because of this, we often purchase DOLE® fruits – which my girls love. They especially enjoy often seeing their favorite characters featured on the packaging (and yes, they keep those stickers as long as they can). This summer, DOLE® is teaming up with Pixar for an INCREDIBLE summer – “Powering The Hero Within” featuring Incredibles 2, a movie we can’t wait to see!
My family and I went to see Incredibles 2 this weekend. To say that Jack-Jack stole the show is probably an understatement. Don’t get me wrong, we loved the whole movie. The plot is great, a little bit predictable but that is to be expected. We all loved seeing the movie pick right back up where it left off 14 years ago. My daughters loved the introductions of some new Supers, and we all thought the action was fantastic. But as a mom, well, I learned a few things about parenting I needed to from the Parr family.
I love Jack-Jack Parr – who doesn’t?! He is the cutest super hero baby with some pretty amazing powers. Speaking of his powers, we got a glimpse into them in the first Incredibles movie, and a little bit in the Incredibles 2 trailers. While at Pixar Studios in April, I got an in depth look at his new powers and how the animation team created them. So much work goes into creating things like this, you would have no idea. We must have watched twenty tests to see how his powers would come across on screen, and I am sure that was not all of them.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has been anticipated by Jurassic Park fans for a while now. I loved the first movie and have really been looking forward to the sequel. I am also a pretty big fan of the original Jurassic Park movies. Chris Pratt is one of my favorite actors so I was really excited to see him join the franchise, and he did not disappoint. Well, next week it hits theaters and to help celebrate its release, The Hopping Bloggers have come together to bring our readers a prize pack worth over $75!
