The Russo brothers have been STINGY ok?! If no one else has said it I will! haha. Up until today we have had very little glimpse of Avengers: Endgame. I mean, we could all speculate what the movie would be about. We already know that Captain Marvel is going to basically save the entire world. But since Thanos snapped his fingers and dusted half the population, we’ve all been left with our mouths hanging open and our eyes wide. I have been WAITING. And this morning, Marvel finally blessed us with the Official Trailer for Avengers: Endgame.
When the second trailer for Aladdin dropped and we got the first “live” look at the genie, boy was the internet talking!! Everyone had something to say, as usual. In Entertainment Weekly’s first look, everyone was mad that Will Smith wasn’t blue. Then when we finally got to see him blue, the internet was BIG MAD. People complained that the CGI was horrible, that he looked creepy, and that he wouldn’t live up to Robin Williams’ genie.
Today friends, the official trailer dropped for Disney’s Aladdin.
I had no idea if I was going to be able to get into a showing of Captain Marvel this weekend. Ya’ll know I’m a procrastinator so I foolishly didn’t purchase any tickets in advance and left my marvel viewing up to fate. Luckily Jesus was on my side and my grandmother is amazing so she watched the babies last night while we went to an 8pm showing.
The controversy around Captain Marvel and Brie Larson was at a HIGH before opening weekend even started. Carol Danvers is the MCU’s first female to have a solo lead. “We” DESERVED. Some people didn’t feel the same. There has been controversy and bad reviews long before the movie hit theaters. Somehow, Captain Marvel got placed under the feminism umbrella, and I honestly don’t feel like it should have.
Captain Marvel isn’t just for women/girls.
Sunny days! Can you believe Sesame Street is 50 years old this year? I’m amazed (though not surprised) of the longevity of this program. I remember being in love with Sesame Street when I was a kid. When I had RJ Sesame Street used to come on every day at 10:30am, and it was a part of his nap time routine. Now, Zayn enjoys Sesame Street too, mainly via YouTube Kids. It’s so amazing how the show has been able to evolve over time,yet still remain the same show that I loved in the early 90s.
This spring, Sesame Place is looking to kick off their most exciting year yet!
I’m not even gonna get too deep into explanations because I’m sure youve already seen the articles all over Facebook about the MoMo Challenge and the video that was found by a pediatrician on Kids YouTube that instructs children how to commit suicide. As parents its our job to protect our children. Plain and simple. There a understandably moments where unplugging is difficult, so if you NEED it, here are some alternative apps you can use to keep the kiddies off YouTube.
We love Netflix kids programming. They have a range of movies, preschool programming, and loads of educational content. We love watching Disney movies (we’ll be sad when their gone) and one of our favorite Netflix original kids shows right now is Motown Magic.
I was invited to a free art class with a guest hosted by Disney and The Art Studio NY, to celebrate the in-home release of Ralph Breaks the Internet.
Over the weekend I was invited with a group of other bloggers to take a painting class in celebration of Ralph Breaks the Internet being released on Digital and DVD/Blu-ray. When I received the invitation I was excited. I’ve done paint and sips before and it’s a super fun experience. Date night it is!
The Art Studio NY is not your typical paint and sip y’all. It is a LEGIT art studio. They offer all kind of lessons, and not going to lie, I felt a little intimidated once I realized what was about to go down. I arrived and sat down in front of a BLANK CANVAS. *insert all kinds of panic*
A couple nights ago, the first screening for Captain Marvel took place and the reactions have been awesome! The lucky few took to Twitter (I love it) to share just how amazing the film is. My favorite part of all the reactions? The nod to the 90s. I’ve already talked about how 2019 is going to be such an amazing and nostalgic year for us millennial babies and I’m glad that Captain Marvel is bringing some of that feel to the big screen also. Check out some of my favorite reactions below.
Everything really was awesome this weekend. We headed out bright and early Saturday morning to check out The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. RJ watches every single LEGO movie/show he can find. He loves blocks and he always has, so I knew he was going to be hype about going to see this one. So is the LEGO movie a good movie for young children? Check out my review below.
So I’m not gonna lie to you guys, when I was given the opportunity to screen Fighting with my Family, I opened my email with confusion. It has been a LONG time since I watched anything wrestling related and I was not familiar with Paige, nor her rise to fame at all. Still, the trailer intrigued me and I decided to give it a shot, and of course the fact that Dwayne Johnson stars in the film also may have been a persuading factor.
FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY is a heartwarming comedy based on the incredible true story of WWE Superstar Paige™. Born into a tight-knit wrestling family, Paige and her brother Zak are ecstatic when they get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out for WWE. But when only Paige earns a spot in the competitive training program, she must leave her family and face this new, cut-throat world alone. Paige’s journey pushes her to dig deep, fight for her family, and ultimately prove to the world that what makes her different is the very thing that can make her a star.
When I finished watching the movie I was so glad that I took a chance. Fighting with My Family is so much more than a wrestling movie. You will laugh, you may cry, and you will fall in love with the “Knights”. No spoilers ahead, I’m going to tell you a few lessons that rang true when I viewed this film, and during my interview with the cast, Paige herself, and director Stephen Merchant.
Let’s get right to it friends, Dumbo is probably THE CUTEST movie that is coming out this year. And for this reason, it’s going to be the hardest for me to watch. I’m all for the live-action movie trend going on but look how freakin’ cute baby Dumbo is. The animated version of this movie is EMOTIONAL. So seeing Dumbo look SOO real, is hard. Check out the new sneak peek Disney shared with us a few days ago:
And I’m so excited that I actually said I was going to throw up during my reaction video. Y’all know how I feel about Aladdin, Ive been talking about this movie ever since they announced the live-action version was coming out. To get an ever closer look at it?!?! It was EVERYTHING I needed tonight.
