McFarland USA in Theatres Everywhere

I'm a sucker for a sports-related films, especially if they are based on true stories. I'm sure I've seen The Blind Side and Remember the Titans at least thirty times each. There are about 10-15 movies that I can watch over and over and tonight, I saw another movie that will go on that list...McFarland USA. Based on the 1987 true story, McFarland, USA follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California, as they give their all to build a cross-country team … [Read more...]

Instead of playing princesses, she started playing … [Read more...]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier in Theaters Today

  I have been waiting for Captain America: The Winter Soldier to come out for what feels like forever.

If you haven't heard about the movie then you haven't been reading my blog. Shame on you!

On The Set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I'm usually not one for surprises. In fact, I don't like them. I have a few control issues (OK, a lot of control issues) and knowing there is a surprise makes me all jittery inside. So when I received my itinerary for the Iron Man 3 premiere last April, seeing the world "surprise" did not sit well with me, and no, the word "special" before surprise did not make it better. It turns out all surprises are not bad. In fact, this surprise rocked, in the biggest of ways. In fact, it was so good … [Read more...]

Disney’s Oscar Winning FROZEN Crosses 1 Billion at the Box Office

My daughter has seen Disney's Frozen in the theaters four times. She and friends can recite nearly all the lines in the movie to perfection, even correcting me at times. Everything is about Elsa and Anna. Everything. She even changed her favorite color from pink to blue and wants all her clothes to be "Elsa Blue". With influence like that, it was no surprise to me that Frozen reached 1 billion dollars in box office sales. And it was only fitting that it happened the day the movie won two … [Read more...]

Guess Who Touched Captain America’s Shield

I never stuck around to watch the movie credits. I would watch award shows like the Academy Awards … [Read more...]

Delivery Man Opens In Theaters TODAY

Guys, what would you do if you found out you had 533 children from some "donations" to a fertility clinic in your younger days? Would you move out of the country and change your name? Maybe grow a mustache and full beard (after all, it is Movember) and pretend like English was your fifth language (yo no soy David In Delivery Man, David Wozniak must make the decision to either go in hiding or come forward when 142 of his children file a lawsuit to reveal his … [Read more...]

My Secret About Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Disclosure: Earlier this year I received an all-expense paid trip to LA to attend the Iron Man 3 premiere where I was also sworn to secrecy about what I saw on the set of Captain America The Winter Soldier. Regardless of my oath in blood (ok, it was really just blue ink), statements below are 100% mine! I usually stink at keeping my own secrets. Usually, I'll be really good for about a day and then I have to spill. To someone. To anyone. Heck, I'd tell my dogs if they would listen. Last April … [Read more...]
