  • Thor Ragnarok DVD

    One of the most fun times I’ve ever had watching a movie was seeing Thor: Ragnarok at the red carpet premiere. It was an incredible trip made great because Thor: Ragnarok was such a fun movie to see. It was funny, filled with action and the best Thor movie so far. I loved director, Taika Waititi’s take on the character. I also like how Taika was the character, Korg in the film. Looking over the extras on the Blu-ray makes me very excited to see more of this character through Taika’s comedy genius eyes.

    Here is the Blu-ray trailer.

    Photo-A-Day #4659

    I was planning on taking a photo of Eva for today but left the house to go to work and wasn’t able to do so. Today Allison and the kids had a movie day and they watched Jumanji (original one) and Avatar. Eva loved the movie and so she made herself a Nav’i ponytail. Allison had the kids watch Avatar because of the ride at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Eva cannot wait to go on that even more so now.

    It is tough on days like these to be working weekend nights. I miss out on the fun of watching the kids seeing different movies and their reactions to them. I’m glad that Eva enjoyed Avatar. Andrew didn’t like it very much, but he did like Jumanji.

    So, instead of a photo of Eva and her homemade Nav’i ponytail I have more LEGO images. The little dragster is a set that came free with a LEGO store purchase. I picked up the new Black Panther sets and the Thor vs Loki Might Micros set from yesterday’s post. I’ll do an in depth review of he Black Panther LEGO sets when I get a chance to.

  • World Turned ODD 19

    ODD SQUAD is one of our favorite shows to watch as a family. This is one of the funniest kids shows on TV. The kids are also learning great math skills while they watch so I am happy when the kids choose to watch the show together. These ODD SQUAD movies are also very fun to watch. Our favorite one was when the older team worked with the new team. I don’t know if the cast is going to rotate again but it makes sense because the kids will age out of the show. You can learn more about the movie ODD SQUAD: WORLD TURNED ODD which premieres on January 15th on PBS.

    PBS KIDS Debuts New Movie From Family-Favorite Series ODD SQUAD This January

    “We hear from families often about what an impact ODD SQUAD has had on them, and how much they enjoy watching it together,” said Lesli Rotenberg, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Children’s Media and Education, PBS. “With ODD SQUAD: WORLD TURNED ODD, we hope kids and parents continue to laugh and learn together as Agents Otis and Olympia use math and problem-solving to face their newest challenge.” read more!

  • Black Panther

    I’m getting more excited about Marvel Studios’ Black Panther. As we get closer to the release date of February 16th there are more and more details coming out. Today I received two featurettes about the movie. One is about how Black Panther is a different sort of Super Hero and how he has additional responsibilities. The other introduces us to the Dora Milaje, the secret service of all-female warriors who protect the king of Wakanda. You can see both below and there is some additional information about the movie, too.

    “Warriors of Wakanda” Featurette

    “Good to Be King Featurette

    Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

  • LEGO Marvel Mighty Micros
    Photo-A-Day #4658

    I’m loving these little LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Mighty Micros. These are little vehicles that are themed for each character. I think that there should be a LEGO video game that was all about racing these Marvel Mighty Micros. They make me think about the Wacky Racers from Hanna-Barbera.

    Some of my favorite cars are the Milano with Star Lord. They did a great job making this with minimal bricks. I also like the Sandman’s dump truck and the fact that Scarlet Spider is chasing him down with a shovel. The best piece out of all of them is the Mix Tape that Nebula is holding.

    I also have an Iron Man vs. Thanos set but am not sure where that one is. I’m kicking myself that I never picked up the Captain America vs. Red Skull and Hulk vs. Ultron. Now these are super hard to find and expensive.
