The Boss Baby – A new animated film coming to theaters on March 2017



Coming to theaters on March 31, 2017 is the animated DreamWorks comedy The Boss Baby. The film stars the voice talents of Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Miles Bakshi.

DreamWorks Animation and the director of Madagascar invite you to meet a most unusual baby.  He wears a suit, speaks with the voice and wit of Alec Baldwin, and stars in the animated comedy, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby.  The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7 year old named Tim.  With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.

Check out the film’s trailer.


It looks cute and very funny.

In a way it reminds of of Baby Finster from Bugs Bunny. Readers who are around my age (forty something) might remember him.

If you would like to learn more about the film you can check out it’s official Facebook page. You can also check out the hashtag #TheBossBaby on social media to see what others are saying.

What do you think of the film? Do you think you’ll see it when it comes to a theater near you?

“… I’m hooked on a feeling

Every time I think of the film Guardians of the Galaxy I can’t help but have the song “Hooked on a Feeling” by the band Blue Suede running through my head.

It looks good (and dare I say Chris Pratt looks REALLY good in the film too – LOL). I can’t wait to see this. I already gave my husband a “heads up” that we’ll be going to see this film for my birthday.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, in theaters December 2016



Those who know me know that I LOVE the Star Wars saga. I have since the first time I saw Star Wars: A New Hope in theaters back in 1977.

We love the story so much that of our cats are named after Star Wars characters (Anakin and Padmé). I wanted to name our dog Obi-Wan (or Obie for short), but my husband ended up naming our dog since I named all the cats (or dog’s name is Espn, which we pronounced Es-pin).

I am super excited to see the next chapter in the franchise, but sadly that won’t be in theaters until December 2017. It’s currently in production and leaves off where Star Wars VII left off.

For those of us who don’t want to wait that long to see more Star Wars, our wait doesn’t have to be long. A spin off from the franchise is coming to theaters December 2016. It’s called Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Fans of the franchise will be excited to see Darth Vadar, the Death Star and other familiar robots/creatures in the new film.

Check out the trailer.


Here is the official synopsis of the film.

From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Rogue One: A Star War Story is directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker. Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are producing, with John Knoll and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers.

It certainly looks interesting. I cannot wait to see it on the big screen.

The film is slated to open in theaters on December 16, 2016.

If you would like to learn more about the film, you can learn more about it on it’s official website. In addition you can “like” Star Wars on Facebook and follow Star Wars on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. The official hashtag for social media is #RogueOne.

Movie Review: Phantom of the Theatre



Now available on DVD and Digital HD is the supernatural thriller Phantom of the Theatre (it’s spelled theatre, even though we spell it theater in the United States).

Phantom of the Theatre is a film from China. There are English subtitles. Normally I don’t like to watch movies with subtitles. I feel like I am always missing the action on screen a I am reading the subtitle, but this movie intrigued me so I figured I could overlook that detail. If you are not a fan of reading subtitles, then you’ll have to stick this film.

Check out the film’s synopsis and trailer.

A haunted theatre/theater, filled with the vengeful spirits of a tragically-trapped performance troupe murdered in a fire 13 years ago, waits for the once-grand palatial playhouse to re-open with a new show … and bring in new victims.. Starring Ruby Lin, Simon Yam, and Tony Yang.


The film has a run time of 104 minutes.

I first thought of this film as a horror movie, but after viewing it I have “downgraded” it from horror to a supernatural thriller (not that it’s a bad thing).

It wasn’t until about half way through the film that I figured out that it was a lot like the Phantom of the Opera. In this case a man hell bent on revenge lurks in the shadow of the abandoned theater. Not everyone is a ghost.

There are a lot of twists and turns in this film. You THINK it’s a horror film (or supernatural thriller) but as the movie progresses there are a lot of twists and turns. There is even romance in this film!

The story is done in a lot of flashbacks to give you better insight into the main characters. The flashbacks were done fluidly so that you didn’t get lost and confused. Some of the backstories were essential to understanding the characters.


Keeping up with the subtitles was hard. At times I just gave up and watched what was going on the screen instead.

I LOVE the cinematography and costumes. The film was set in the early 1900’s and the set reflected that.

I absolutely loved the outfits and hairstyles. They were very classy.

The movie was not scary at all – at least for this die hard horror film fan. Some of the special effects were pretty good, others were rather cheesy. The people on fire looked really fake, but some of the other special effects were impressive. Die hard horror film fans might not be impressed, but those who are easily frightened might find themselves jumping a few times.

I think this film had more to do with the overall story than the special effects. This story has it all – intrigue, romance, revenge, suspense, mystery…

I don’t think this title would appeal to a large amount of people, but I’m sure that there are plenty of people who would find this film interesting and entertaining, despite the language barrier.

Look for Phantom of the Theatre where ever movies are sold (or digitally downloaded). I did find the film on Amazon if you are interested in it.

Movie Review: Who Gets the Dog?



Now available on Digital Download and DVD is the romantic comedy Who Gets the Dog?

Who Gets the Dog? stars Alicia Silverstone and Ryan Kwanten. It was nice to see Alicia in a new movie. I can’t remember the last movie I saw her in (Blast from the Past I think?).

Olive (Alicia Silverstone) is a top doctor with high hopes of starting a family, but her out-of-work husband, Clay (Ryan Kwanten), is too busy concentrating on his dream to be a big league hockey star. On the brink of divorce, the couple can’t agree on who will take custody of their beloved dog, Wesley. Things go from bad to worse as they battle it out in court. Resorting to cheap tactics and dirty tricks, Olive and Clay pull out all the stops to win back Wesley, with hilariously disastrous consequences.

As silly as it sounds, pets can often get caught up in divorces and break-ups. It’s just as bad as when there are kids involved (pets don’t get the same considerations).

Many years ago, a boyfriend and I adopted a dog together. When we broke up I was dead set on having full custody of our dog (which I got).

I think the story will resonate well with people who love their dogs and/or pet owners.


It’s clear that both parties love their dog Wesley. Throughout the movie I found myself leaning towards one pet parent over the other. Initially I was leaning towards Olive, but as the movie went on I felt like Clay might be better for Wesley.

The movie is a bit predictable. It strikes me as something you would see on the Hallmark Channel – which is fine (I watch a lot of movies on that channel). Even so, it was still very enjoyable to watch.

I think the star of the movie is Wesley, the dog. I love movies that feature animals. I am a big time animal lover and Wesley is a beautiful Retriever. Kudos to Wesley’s fine acting too. LOL!

The film is not rated. I didn’t see anything wrong with it. There is no sex, drugs, nudity or anything like that. I would consider it a family friendly film (PG?). Young viewers might not understand the couple’s separation and why they are fighting for custody of their dog, but they should still enjoy the film simply because it features an adorable dog.

This film is more of a comedy, but there are some dramatic elements too. After all, a couple divorcing is not something that should be taken lightly. Those parts of the film tugged at my heartstrings a bit. Thankfully the adorable Wesley broke up those moments and gave the movie a more light-hearted flair.

Look for Who Gets the Dog? on iTunes or where ever movies are sold.

Below is the film’ trailer for your enjoyment.

Keeping up with the Joneses – in theaters October 21, 2016 (giveaway ends 10/21/16)



Coming to theaters on October 21, 2016 is a fun date night movie, Keeping up with the Joneses.

The film stars Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, John Hamm and Gadot.

My mom used to use the expression “Keeping up with the Joneses” when I was a young girl (incidentally, my mom’s maiden name was Jones). The expression is used when someone tries to be like someone else. You want to have the same house, the same car, the same designer bag and so forth.

Personally, I have not been one to “Keep up with the Joneses.” I don’t pay any mind to trends or fads. Fancy cars don’t impress me. Designer labels don’t matter to me. There is no one I want to emulate.

Anyway… back to the movie.

An ordinary suburban couple (Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher) finds it’s not easy keeping up with the Joneses (Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot) – their impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated new neighbors – especially when they discover that Mr. and Mrs. “Jones” are covert operatives.

Check out the film’s trailer.


It looks like a fun film. I was laughing just watching the trailer.

In a way it reminds me of the film Mr. & Mrs. Smith, where the couple seemed like regular folk, but in reality they were secret agents.

The film is rated PG-13.


I think this would be a fun date night movie, especially for couples with children who can relate to the couple (Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher) who are parents and trying to balance parenting with super sleuthing. Our 20th Anniversary is coming up and I suggested going to dinner and a movie to see this film. My husband is all for the idea.

If you would like to learn more about the film you can visit the film’s Official Site. You can also “like” the film on Facebook and follow the film on Twitter and Instagram. You can also see what others are saying about the movie by checking out the hashtag #JonesesMovie.

What do you think about the film? Does it look funny? Do you think you’ll go and see it in theaters?


I also have $25 Visa gift card giveaway for a lucky reader. You can use the gift card to go see the movie (or maybe use it towards dinner and a movie). The prize is compliments of 20th Century Fox.

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end on October 21, 2016. The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via email and will have three days to reply or a new winner will be chosen in their place.
