This weekend I continued introducing my kids to the Star Wars saga. We've watched the entire original trilogy, along with episodes 1 and 2. I've noticed that I enjoy what I had previously viewed as the weaker entries in the series more when I've watched it with them. Their enthusiasm is infectious! The movie started … Continue reading Star Wars Episode 7: Watching The Force Awakens With My Kids
This is the first episode in the new Star Wars animated series. I know it's been out for a few weeks, but I was on vacation and didn't have time to check it out. I did read some good and bad things about it, and thought I'd put my thoughts on it here. It's different. … Continue reading Star Wars: Resistance Episode 1 “The Recruit”
Two days ago my son turned 5. So, taking the opportunity to do something crazy for his birthday(other than taking him to Japan), we took the whole family to Tokyo Disney. The morning began simply enough. We got up with the sun, ate, and made our way quickly to the train station. It was an … Continue reading There Ain’t No Birthday Like a Tokyo Disney Spooky Boo Birthday!
I consider myself to be in luck here, as I only watched the first film about a month ago. The film actually begins with a short thank you message from the cast and director. They thank everyone for their patience in waiting 14 years for the sequel, and hope you like it. I thought it … Continue reading Film Review: The Incredibles 2

The movie is very loosely based on Marvel Comics characters, and was brought into the Disney fold when they purchased Marvel. From what I've read of the comic, this movie is a lot lighter … Continue reading Film Review: Big Hero 6
A friend of mine recently discovered that I had never watched The Incredibles. After chastising me for it, arrangements were made for me to watch the film. After watching I do agree that I should have watched it long ago. It was a really great film! Thanks Dan! The story follows two 'Supers' Mr Incredible … Continue reading Film Review: The Incredibles
I enjoyed this movie. I originally went back when it came out in December, but went again seeing as it recently hit the cheap theater. My hope was that I would enjoy it just as much as I did during my first theatrical viewing, and I was not disappointed, though I was assured by an … Continue reading Going Rogue: My second trip to see Rogue One
I took my kids to their first movie in the theater this past weekend. We went and saw the latest Disney offering, Moana. I wasn't aware of much about this movie, aside from the fact that The Rock voiced one of the characters. I was also concerned about how my three-year old would behave. Luckily, … Continue reading My Kid’s First Cinema Experience: An afternoon with Moana
