  • Photo-A-Day #3536

    I have this framed painting on my desk. I got it a few years ago when I met comedian Mike Schmidt. It is a painting of me and little Schmidtty jumping up and down in wet cement. When I was taking photos around the desk I liked how Tree Rex lined up with me in the background.

    Speaking of Skylanders. I’ll be on the hunt again tomorrow to find the rest of Wave 3. I have one more figure to find, Tuff Luck and also need to pick up Winterfest Lob-Star. I like that there have been some Christmas figures produced and there is this fun video of the Skylanders singing the 12 Days of Christmas.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy DVD Cover

    I’ve spoken at long length about Guardians of the Galaxy. I’ve met stars, interviewed James Gunn, reviewed and watched the movie a number of times, including in IMAX. When I was asked if I’d like a screener copy of the movie to check out all the extras I was thrilled. I know I’ll be buying the full Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital copy because Guardians is one of my all-time favorite movies.

    I could watch the movie over and over. Guardians is one of those movies that has everything, heart, humor, action and great characters. These bonus clips below should give you a little taste of all the awesome extras that can be found on the Blu-Ray/DVD/HD. read more!

  • Inside Out Poster Fear
    Disgust Anger
    Sadness Joy

    The next Disney-Pixar movie will be Inside Out and it will take you to somewhere brand new, inside the mind. I’ve watched the teaser trailer and this clip below, the movie looks funny and there are so many things that can be done on the subject. I know that Disney-Pixar makes some incredible movies full of humor and heart. I expect that this one will go through the whole gamut of emotions. Yeah, I said it.

  • Sofia the First: The Curse of Princess Ivy

    The kids and I watch Sofia the First together. Whenever there is a new episode we usually all watch it. However, they went and watched the Curse of Princess Ivy without me the first time around. They happily watched it again with me on their second viewing. They both really liked the singing dragons and Rapunzel. I thought it was a great touch to have Mandy Moore reprise her role as Rapunzel in this movie.

    The movie had more action than usual in a Sofia the First show. This time around Amber learns the secret of Sofia’s Amulet by spying on Sofia. then she gets her hands on it and gets cursed, a curse that frees Princess Ivy, a pretty nasty piece of work who is turning Enchancia black and white and trying to take over and make it her own kingdom. This movie will be out on DVD on February 24, 2015. read more!

  • Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Movie Box

    When I went on that Disney Press Trip earlier this year I got to see Disney’s heartwarming comedy Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. I was completely laughing out loud at so many parts of this movie. It was so much fun to see it. I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did. I couldn’t wait for the whole family to see it and then Eva didn’t want to see it in the theater. So, I think she’ll be ready to enjoy it when we can watch it anytime in our own home. I know she’ll like it once she watches it.

    Enjoy the Blu-ray trailer of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Below:
