MOVIE REVIEW: Life’s too Hard to NOT See “Thor: Ragnarok”

I’ll talk about Thor: Ragnarok in a moment but first I’d like to address the big picture…
LIFE is hard.
If you need proof, just look around you. Everyone I know is going through something awful right now. I have friends who are fighting cancer, and friends who are caring for parents who are fighting cancer. I have friends who have lost their jobs, and friends who are trapped in jobs that they HATE. I have friends who worry desperately for their children, and who can’t turn the TV on at night because the bad news they see freaks them out even more.
In other words, everything seems to suck right now, for just about everyone.
Don’t we all deserve something GOOD? Don’t we deserve a moment to escape and feel light, or powerful, or maybe to just laugh our asses off?
Now, I’m ready to talk about Thor: Ragnarok. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Thor: Ragnorak” EARLY & FOR FREE

My daughters and I have been pumped about Thor: Ragnorak for AGES. You know what has us the most excited though? Not the fact that Mark Ruffalo shows up as The Hulk, or that Tom Hiddleston is back as Loki. Nor were we jazzed that Cate Blanchett plays Hela the Goddess of Death or that Benedict Cumberbatch makes an appearance as Dr. Strange. No, the thing that has us excitedly tittering over Thor: Ragnorak is the fact that Chris Hemsworth cut his hair. And it looks GOOD. Sorry, not my proudest moment but it’s true. If Hemsworth’s new ‘do isn’t enough to get you excited about Thor: Ragnorak as well, maybe you haven’t heard that it’s getting rave reviews, or that I’ve got passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE.

MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: Is “Captain America: Civil War” OK for Kids?


Those of us who have MARVEL fans for kids have some big decisions to make this weekend. Oh, its NOT whether or not to see Captain America: Civil War. No, that’s definitely going to happen because we’re just as excited to see it as our kids. No, we have to decide when and where we’ll see it, and IF we’ll spend the extra cash for full-blown IMAX 3D.

See, we wouldn’t miss Captain America: Civil War if The Hulk himself was blocking the door, so this blog isn’t for people like us.

No, I want to talk to all the other parents out there who DON’T watch the MARVEL movies with their kids. If you have little ones who have no interest, you’re excused. Go watch Bubble Guppies and eat Cheerios with them but for the rest of you, why? Continue reading →

ON YOUR RADAR: “The Walk” & “Blindspot”

We’ve officially reached the end of “Summer Movie Season,” and most of the current offerings look about as sad and lifeless as the grass on my lawn. This would be the perfect time to catch up on those blockbusters you MEANT to see (like Straight Outta Compton and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation) AND familiarize yourself with all the new TV shows and movies heading our way. I’ve been lucky enough to see some sneak peeks of upcoming attractions and wanted to share what I’m MOST excited about. First and foremost is The Walk, from Director Robert Zemeckis. You simply HAVE to watch this trailer:

Your heartrate is up, isn’t it? Continue reading →
