Street Fight: The Muppets vs. Sesame Street

Interviewing Kermit and Miss Piggy was the highlight of my journalism career. As a hardcore Muppets fan, I have loved watching Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal, Beaker and the Swedish Chef get things started. Now, I also loved Sesame Street as a kid. The Count was always a favorite (though I fully admit, I had a hand puppet of him as a kid that scared me to death) and there is no greater superhero than Super Grover. Recently, however, I heard of a gang war brewing. A throw-down to end all throw-downs. The Muppets had entered Sesame Street and it was time to take out the trash. Kaci Marie posted what seemed a harmless little ...

Disney’s Frozen 2 Gift Pack Giveaway!

Disney's Frozen holds a real special place in my heart. No, it actually has nothing to do with my kids either. To me, Frozen was my first real step into the world of Disney PR as a blogger. Yep, some six years ago, I was a fairly young blogger who happened to worm his way into a special invitation to go interview the cast and musicians behind Disney's upcoming animated film Frozen. It was roughly one month before "Let it Go" was unleashed on the big screen for the world, and there I was sitting in the Waldorf Astoria in New York City interviewing the one and only Kristen Bell. The rest, ...

The Star Wars Episode IX Trailer Brings My Childhood Full Circle

Star Wars Celebration is going on right now in Chicago and The Force is stronger than ever. That's because Disney has dropped the name of the final "original" trilogy film... Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker. They even announced a release date of December 20. Oh, and they also surprised the world with a little teaser trailer. Gah! Cover your keyboard to protect it from the drool and take a gander! Did you get goose pimples like I did? Seriously. Story wise, not much is explained. But snippets of awesomeness prevail, which no doubt will lead to eight long months of theories and speculation. First, we start out with Rey on ...

This Fanboy Loved Everything About Captain Marvel, Including the Cat

Let me say this right from the start. Captain Marvel is not a great female-lead superhero movie. It's not a feminist-powered, man-bashing film either. Captain Marvel is just an amazingly fun, great movie that happens to have a female lead. It's sad that there even has to be a discussion or a distinction in gender these days when discussing things like entertainment. But apparently that's where we are in society today. I loved Captain Marvel. I thought it was a fantastic film that was yet again a very different type of Marvel movie much in the vein that Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy were. It ties in beautifully with the entire ...

The Mega Star Wars Holiday Giveaway (Over $600 in prizes)!

As a young farmer from a desert planet named Tatooine proved... there is strength in numbers. One person can find a ragtag bunch of friends (including a fuzzy Wookiee), join a rebellion and topple an Empire. Well, I'm not looking to topple anything, but I've joined up with a few dozen amazing bloggers to bring the ultimate Star Wars Giveaway your way! It seems appropriate that Elayna Fernandez (from ThePositiveMom.com) has used her Force-like powers to assemble the Galaxy's Greatest Bloggers. I met Elayna on a few of my Disney Blogger trips (Including SOLO: A Star Wars Story), and if she could represent any Star Wars character in history, it would ...

Straight From Ant-Man and the Wasp: Scott Lang’s Fun-At-Home Kit

I loved Ant-Man. Such a hugely emotional story packed into a teeny tiny character. So when Ant-Man and the Wasp came out, I was blown away at twice the action, twice the teeny tiny superheroes and twice the shockers! If you haven't seen Ant-Man and the Wasp yet... shut the door! No, really. Go shut the door then sit on your couch and start streaming it because that bad boy is available now on digital download! And on October 16, you can take Ant-Man and the Wasp home as a super spiffy Blu-ray. Without giving too much away, the film sees our hero Scott Lang stuck at home. Following the amazingly awesome ...
