The Man of Steel Has a Heart Of Gold. My thoughts on the film screening, and Swag Giveaway

Tuesday night I attended the screening for "Man of Steel" at a theater in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, I'd like to tell you all about the pre event, the zillion anxious people waiting on line for hours to see this film-but that's another post...

Luckily I was able to meander my way to the door and ask the security guard where the media rep was. It took some time and eventually I found my seat.  Roll the film-please.

Man of Steel opens with Superman  (Henry Cavill)  as an infant with his parents, who are trying to save Cal (superman) from the war on his planet.  His father (Russell Crowe) sends him to earth  with all his hopes and dreams. His parents place him in a pod craft and send him out into the galaxy headed toward earth.   He is found by a couple (Kevin Costner, Diane Lane) who raise him as their own. Do they know he has super powers? Where did he come from? Why is he here?

The beginning of the film is a bit of science fiction, but gives the story of Superman's birth and why he has the power to be Man of Steel. It was a good refresher for me and for a new generation of Superman fans.

On earth, Louis Lane (Amy Adams) encounters Superman at one of his many nomad lifestyle jobs he has though out the film. He moves from town to town, job to job always using a different name. He is a bit of an outcast on earth, not knowing what to do with his super powers until he needs them to save mankind.

At the end of the film, wait I'm not going to give the ending away-but I will tell you that I enjoyed the film and that there were a zillion people waiting on line and that tells me how excited people are to see the film.

He is a modern day Superman with modern day super powers. Yep, he still can stop a locomotive and lift up tall buildings, and is gorgeous. But, that's not what the film is about. It's about you and I and heart. The heart to live together, peacefully, and humbly.

looking for more? there are trailers for the movie here:

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook.

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
