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

Disclosure: I received an all-expenses paid trip to LA last year to attend the Iron Man 3 premier and had the added bonus of being on set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier where I got to play with 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?

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.

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...]
