CREED II images and trailer are here! Movie in theaters November 21, 2018 #CreedII

With the holiday season soon upon us, I'm looking for breaks in the hustle of the days activities. Perhaps some kind of Christmas display we can stroll through, a movie that the family can watch at the theater. You know. to give us a chance to sit down, no laundry to do, no dishes to wash, and put the phone on silent. 

This year CREED II will be on our list of movies to see. Why? Well, it looks like a story that will keep us in thought for a while. It's exciting, yet heartfelt. Everybody loves the winner, but winners work hard to get to that level.

If you have been on any sports team, most likely you know the effort and devotion needed to reach the top performance. My favorite movie like that is Remember the Titans, oh wait The Replacements was really good too. How about The Blind Side-even better, you've got family, education, and hard work that pays off in all aspects. From the cold rainy night of being homeless to a warm comfy home, a boy is loved and cared for as he is nurtured in spirit and mind. Any way, back to a new movie in theaters November 22, 2018 is CREED II.

 

About the movie:
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family's past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what's worth fighting for, and discover that nothing's more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can't escape your history.  The film releases in theaters on Wednesday, November 21.


CREED II will be in theaters on Wednesday, November 21, 2018.

Whoa, I found a cat in my mailbox.
Yes, a cat. It's true. 
We have an extra large mailbox, so, a cat could really fit inside. 

He told me his name is Maximus, and he was born on July 26.

I asked him why in world was he in my mailbox?

He replied: I Like to meet people, and of course I like fish, and sunny spots to take a nap in. 



Then he just kept talking and telling me that for each doll purchased, like himself, 10 nutritious meals are provided to children in need.

So, I said well, come on inside my warm sunny house and tell me more about how a cat can give meals to children in need. (I didn't tell him we have a fish tank because we don't eat those fish, but I had some cat treats for a back up, in case he asked for a snack).


Once we got inside my house, he said open your lap top and go to Cuddle + Kind web site. There I saw so many soft, cuddly dolls like Maximus.

There are lambs, dogs, bunnies, unicorns, and mermaids, fox, deer, and mermaids.

Oh my gosh they are all so adorable. really. And they are available in two sizes, regular and little. 

Go look for yourself.

From Walt Disney Studios:

Twitter:      https://twitter.com/disneystudios    #DisneysNutcracker



My Priceless gift:
My Aunt Mary, bless her soul, gave me a little porcelain angel with my October Birthstone gem embedded on the angels front. I don't remember her giving it to me, it could have been a birth gift. All I know is that the angel sat on my dresser all my life and it still sit upon my dresser. It's a reminder of family, the love of God, and my Aunt Mary. She taught my sister and I so many things during our Summer vacations with her, like fishing, swimming, cottage living, life in the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. 

More about the film:  
All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. 
It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston, and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.



 

The cast includes: Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Eugenio Derbez, Matthew Macfadyen, Richard E. Grant, Miranda Hart, Sergei Polunin, Jayden Fowora-Knight, Omid  Djalili, Jack Whitehall, Meera Syal, Ellie Bamber, Misty Copeland, with Helen  Mirren and Morgan Freeman. The film is directed by       Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, Blu Ray GIVEAWAY

The Teen Titans are noticing that all the super heroes. like themselves are stars in movies, so hey, why can't Teen Titans go to Hollywood, find a producer, and star in their own film?

How easy does that sound? I guess pretty simple, but when they arrive in Hollywood, they are mislead by an evil villain that is acting like he will produce their movie. But he has another plan and it doesn't involve making the Teen Titans stars.

be sure to visit Teen Titans Go! To the Movies on their  very own web site: http://www.teentitansgo-movie.com/
Teen Titans Go! To the movies is set to release on October 30, 2018.

Gift idea:
Fill up your child's Trick or Treat bucket with Teen Titans Go! To the Movies  DVD or Blu Ray Combo Pack as a  treat on Halloween night.
Add popcorn, juice, Halloween themed paper plates, cups, and napkins, or even better Teen Titans paper party goods.  




Movie Night or Day:
Have a family movie night or let the kids watch the fun of the Teen Titans as the daylight hours are shorter and the cooler air of  Autumn is giving way to leaves twirling down from the canopy of trees. Don't you just love to watch the leaves twirl and spin through the sun filled cool days? I think kids love to watch new movies, over and over again. 



SYNOPSIS

It seems like all the superheroes are getting their own movies – everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! Determined to be a star, Robin vows to change this. If only they could get Hollywood director Jade Wilson (Kristen Bell) to notice them! 

With a few madcap ideas and musical numbers (of course), the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town. But when Supervillain Slade (Will Arnett) messes with their plans, the Teen Titans will have to become true superheroes to save the world!

SMALL FOOT is coming to a theater near you on September 28, 2018, Movie ticket giveaway.

This post contains:
 SMALL FOOT movie trailer
SMALL FOOT movie synopsis
Do the Yeti, it's a dance for you to show your stuff.
A Giveaway of movie tickets and promo items.

SMALL FOOT film is coming to a theater near you on September 28, 2018
You read that right-SMALL FOOT, not BIG FOOT.
There is a Yeti.
There is a boy.
There is imagination.


A casual day in the Yeti clan is interrupted by a monster that brings a Small Foot (human) to the neighborhood. The Yeti clan is pretty tight, they stay in their frosty land and don't venture to far out of range.
A young Yeti gets a glimpse of a human boy as he falls to the ground from the monster which is really an airplane.

He's there and then he's gone. Where did he go? Where did he come from? So many questions. Yeti has imagination in his heart that he wants to find the human. He takes a big leap of faith and goes to search for what lies outside of his community. It's not common practice for a trip outside the cold climate, so panic arises when he leaves the clan. Secretly a few characters have been able to save a few artifacts of human life outside the world as they know it to be. 

My very own imaginative place I'd like to venture out of New Jersey for is Florida Keys.The thought of the deep blue ocean, sunny days, vacation land, and adventure keep my imagination in gear for a future trip, but I don't plan on a frosty land trip like where Yeti community lives. Well, unless from a heated Gondola.


GIVEAWAY: Enter for your chance to win a family pack to see the film.

  • ·         1 fandango code card admit two for Small Foot
  •            Adorable stickers from the movie
  • ·         Activity poster and sheet for the kids
  • ·         A blue Smallfoot notebook

who's in this film? Lots of movie stars and a star Yeti of course.
Synopsis: 
 An animated adventure for all ages, with original music and an all-star cast, “Smallfoot” turns a myth upside down when a bright young yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human.
News of this “smallfoot” throws the simple yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in an all new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.
“Smallfoot” stars Channing Tatum (“The LEGO® Batman Movie,” the “Jump Street” films) , Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”), Common (“Selma”), LeBron James (upcoming “Space Jam 2”), Danny DeVito (“The Lorax,” Oscar nominee for “Erin Brockovich”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), and Yara Shahidi (TV’s “Black-ish”).  It debuts in theaters on September 28.

The BOOK CLUB film is more of a girlfriend club with some romance to discuss.

What to do on a Saturday afternoon when everyone is out of the house? Watch a DVD! - that's my plan. Having recently, as in a few days ago received a DVD to review titled BOOK CLUB from Paramount, I loaded up the Blu Ray player and I settled in for me time...

Uninterrupted, unplanned, no popcorn, no phone calls, no dryer buzzing, just me watching a film I wanted to see since it was in theaters.

  • Diane Keaton
  •  Jane Fonda 
  • Candice Bergen 
  • Mary Steenburgen
  • Andy Garcia

You know those girlfriend conversations that only you and  your best girlfriends understand because you've got history. There is history with this bunch, not just book club conversations, but true friendship bonds.
I've have a few best girlfriends, I haven't seen them much lately, due to caring for an ill member of my family, but we do keep in contact by texting for now. This film made me think of my girlfriends all through the movie, and that's a good thing. 

BOOK CLUB is a means to Friendship Club and finding out what's on the other side of being a wife, mom, or girlfriend to someone. It's about finding out each of these characters love for each other and their own lives. Sort of like coming back around to the life you had before getting to your 50's, but way better.
