I’m about to put two names together that I really never thought I would.  Those two names are “Disney” and “Lewis Black”.  And I’m seriously in love.

Who else but Lewis Black could be Anger in the new Disney*Pixar film Inside Out, coming June 19, 2015

I have been a Lewis Black fan for a long time.  A few years ago my husband and I even had the opportunity to see him perform live here in Louisville.  Pretty sure I own all his albums, too. Continue reading »

Somewhere around junior high my family started a new tradition of the entire family going to a movie on Thanksgiving night.  There were 10 or so of us that went and it was always a fun way to end the day’s festivities.  There were a surprising number of other people there, and I found out that for many it wasn’t just a Thanksgiving tradition, it was a Christmas one, too.

Into the Woods opens Christmas Day 2014

I’m trying to remember if we saw any movies on Christmas Day.  If we did, none really stick out to me.  But this year, I think that’s going to be different.  Because this year Into the Woods opens on December 25th and I think it’s going to be awesome. Continue reading »

Oz the Great and Powerful

Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful Movie - Opens March 8th, 2013

There is so much exciting Oz the Great and Powerful news to share with you all.  As the movie’s March 8th release date draws closer it seems something fun and Oz-y is being announced or released almost every day.  Just in the past week there have been three new items – and I have them all for you.

First, Disney just announced that superstar Mariah Carey has recorded the song “Almost Home” for the movie.  You’ll have a chance to hear it before the movie, too; it’s going to be released as a single on February 19th.  “‘Almost Home’ has a message that works beautifully with the film,” Mariah Carey says of the song she co-wrote and co-produced  for Oz The Great and Powerful. “It’s a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love.” Continue reading »

Marvel’s Iron Man 3 – Coming May 2013!

Marvel's "Iron Man 3" hits theaters on May 3, 2013

Looks like Tony Stark may need to make a few repairs…

The new trailer for Iron Man 3 is now out and it is awesome!  My family and I are anxiously awaiting its May 3, 2013 arrival.  We’ve been watching our copies of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and The Avengers to tide us over in the meantime.  It’s hard to get enough of the great Marvel superheros!

Marvel’s Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
