Review: Guardians of the Galaxy’s Surprising Fit in the Marvel Universe

I had avoided most of the previews and trailers of Guardians of the Galaxy, other than a short trailer at last year’s D23 Expo out in Anaheim. Basically, what that trailer told me was that it was sci-fi, not your average superhero movie, and there was a raccoon and a …

Disney’s Maleficent Offers a Twist on Sleeping Beauty

Like many others, I was completely on board and excited for Disney’s live-action Maleficent, a new look at the “real story” of the dark fairy who we first meet in the classic Sleeping Beauty tale. I had previously fallenĀ in love with the Wicked book series by Gregory Maguire, and thought …

Disneynature Bears: A Must-See Visual Treasure

I make it no secret that I am not a fan of animal movies. That’s not to say I don’t love movies with animals or nature in them, rather, I am not a fan of watching the “circle of life” in action. I can barely handle eliminating the errant spider …

From Arrrr to Zarina, The Pirate Fairy Is Packed With Pixie Dust!

The Lego Movie Has Laughs For All Ages-Celebrate at Legoland Florida

After seeing several commercials for The Lego Movie in our house, my kids were pretty excited to see it. I thought it was a joke at first; some independent filmmaker deciding to have some fun with Lego. The characters seemed to be poking fun at their own personas and even …

Review: Frozen Took Me By Surprise and Melted My Heart

I will fully admit, as I saw the endless promotion for Disney’s 53rd Animated Feature, Frozen start to begin, I was less than interested. Olaf the Snowman, clearly designed to appeal to the youngest of Disney fans, didn’t excite me at all. I wanted to know more about the story …
