Leave it to Netflix to Come Up with Birthdays On-Demand

I am so spoiled with Movies On-Demand these days, that I pretty much expect instant access to any movie or TV show ever made at any point. It's just crazy convenient. But have you ever thought about Birthdays On-Demand? Yeah, as a parent, I can most definitely appreciate anything that will help make birthdays for my kids that much easier and more special for them. I remember birthday parties when I was a kid. I didn't go to the movies, take everyone bowling or even have a pool party. Nope. What we did was just have a lot of fun around my house. Mom would create a ton of games for us ...

Marvel’s Inhumans is Literally Out of This World – And There’s a Teleporting Dog!

LOCKJAW, ANSON MOUNT (Black Bolt) When Arnim Zola showed up as a series of computer screens in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I thought there was absolutely no way on Earth that Marvel could top themselves with crazy, obscure, bizarre characters making it to the mainstream. Now that I've seen previews of Inhumans, I stand corrected. Lockjaw, a giant, teleporting dog, is making his way to the small screen this month! Continuing its entertainment domination with major motion pictures, Netflix runaway hits like The Defenders and ABC TV's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel shows no signs of slowing down. Kicking off on September 29 on ABC, get ready for Marvel's Inhumans. These guys ...

Netflix’s Marvel Shows Aren’t Just for Superhero Fans (or How to Get Your Friends to Binge Watch The Defenders)

My name is Andrew and I am a comic book geek. That means that even if Marvel puts out the craziest movies and TV shows based on obscure characters like Ant-Man or Iron Fist, I'm first in line. And when Netflix's amazing set of characters team up in a new series called The Defenders, I'm screaming from the rooftops. Yeah, The Defenders. Sounds like a cheap version of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, a.k.a. The Avengers. To be honest, they kind of are. I've never been a diehard Defenders fan but always dug them when they showed up in other comics. The Avengers were the A-List team, headquartered in NYC and fighting Earth-shattering foes. The ...

Archie and the Gang Grow Up on the Sexy, Haunting ‘Riverdale’

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own. Even though I grew up on superhero comics like Captain America, Amazing Spider-Man and The Avengers, I'll admit I've always had a soft spot for Archie and the whole Riverdale Gang. All-American teen heartthrob Archie Andrews was always in over his head. The biggest problems he faced was whether to ask Betty or Veronica out on a date. For the record, I would've always chosen Betty. Then there's his hamburger-eating pal Jughead. Lovable goon Moose. Bad guy with a soft spot Reggie. The always clueless Principal Weatherbee ...

Kids and Screens Make for Some Serious Play Time

As someone who grew up on the Atari 2600 and every system since, I've always had a strong belief that video games are so much more than mindless entertainment. There's so much to learn including: hand-to-eye coordination, puzzle solving and even the very basics of strategizing. As a fairly sedentary activity, though, video games and even basic TV viewing get a bad rap. And that's why I'm really intrigued by the Genius of Play campaign. The Genius of Play campaign seeks to explore and share the numerous ways that all levels of play can really help children learn and grow.
