Puss in Boots: The Last Wish & Screening Movie Pass Giveaway

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

This movie is long overdue…we are so stoked! We had to start watching the previous ones to prepare ourselves too. My youngest hadn’t ever seen Puss in Boots. 

Here is a fun activity too to get ready for the movie release.


This Christmas, everyone’s favorite leche-loving, swashbuckling, fear-defying feline returns. 

For the first time in more than a decade, DreamWorks Animation presents a new adventure in the Shrek universe as daring outlaw Puss in Boots discovers that his passion for peril and disregard for safety have taken their toll. Puss has burned through eight of his nine lives, though he lost count along the way. Getting those lives back will send Puss in Boots on his grandest quest yet. 

Academy Award® nominee Antonio Banderas returns as the voice of the notorious PiB as he embarks on an epic journey into the Black Forest to find the mythical Wishing Star and restore his lost lives. But with only one life left, Puss will have to humble himself and ask for help from his former partner and nemesis: the captivating Kitty Soft Paws (Oscar® nominee Salma Hayek). 

In their quest, Puss and Kitty will be aided—against their better judgment—by a ratty, chatty, relentlessly cheerful mutt, Perro (Harvey Guillén, What We Do in the Shadows). Together, our trio of heroes will have to stay one step ahead of Goldilocks (Oscar® nominee Florence Pugh, Black Widow) and the Three Bears Crime Family, “Big” Jack Horner (Emmy winner John Mulaney, Big Mouth) and terrifying bounty hunter, The Big Bad Wolf (Wagner Moura, Narcos).

Watch the trailer here —->

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish features an all-star comedic cast that includes Oscar® winner Olivia Colman, Ray Winstone (Black Widow), Samson Kayo (Sliced), Emmy nominee Anthony Mendez (Jane the Virgin) and Tony nominee Da'Vine Joy Randolph (Trolls World Tour).

The long-awaited follow-up to the 2011 Academy Award®-nominated blockbuster, The Last Wish is directed by Joel Crawford and produced by Mark Swift, the creative team behind DreamWorks Animation’s smash, The Croods: A New Age. The film’s executive producer is Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri. 

The character of Puss in Boots first appeared in 2004’s Oscar®-nominated Shrek 2 and instantly became a global, scene-stealing sensation. Puss then co-starred in two other Shrek sequels and his solo film, as well as in multiple DreamWorks Animation videos and TV series. The Shrek and Puss in Boots films have collectively earned more than $3.5 billion worldwide.

Nevada - P-EBT Card

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Nevada families with kiddos in CCSD…be on the lookout for these (P-EBT) cards that will come addressed to your student. This is a pandemic benefit card for food assistance. 

If your child was sent home anytime last year on a Covid protocol or school closure due to Covid, you would have likely already received a card with benefits a month or so ago. 

What is the card?!? It is replacing missing free lunches and breakfasts at a rate of $7.10 for each day.

But, the benefit didn’t stop there…each student that was enrolled in the free lunch, which was everyone, by the end of school May 2022 will qualify for summer meal benefits. In October 2022, the deposits of $391 will be added to a new P-EBT card. Cards are on their way…check your mail.

If you would like to see if your student qualifies and how much they are receiving, go here to Access Nevada and complete the form for 2021-2022. You can also find more information here.

The card works like regular EBT (food stamps). There is an app you can setup a pin per card and you are looking for the words EBT or Snap Food when checking out. You can even use your card with Sam’s Scan ‘n Go, Amazon grocery online and any other places that take EBT. 

With the rising food costs, this is a great help to many families this holiday season. :)

Elvis Movie Opens Today (6/24) {Our Review} - Viva Austin Butler!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Elvis opens in theaters today, June 24th, nationwide. 

The movie is told from the perspective of Elvis’ longtime manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks). The media was exposing the Colonel as a crook who used Elvis and Parker tells us he wants to set the story straight, “I made Elvis”. You can be the judge of how you feel about their relationship by the movie’s end. 

The film is a bit on the theatrical side, which is expected in a Baz Lurhmann film. The costumes were well done. The music choices to add in current rap and techno in some sets, I didn’t care for. I felt a lot of time was spent on Elvis story in the younger years and early parts of his career. The later years in Vegas were sped up quite a bit. Social tensions were weaved throughout the film and included Elvis’ reaction to them. All the basic wiki facts were pretty much covered. I wouldn’t say there was much new revelation for any Elvis fans. For the younger generation that really only knows him by name, they will get a sense of the creative liberty Elvis took for himself. It is quite clear time after time that Elvis did what he wanted despite the advise of his manager and/or others. 

Austin Butler…what a performance. He actually sang and jirated just like the King. I wouldn’t say he was a dead ringer or an imitator though. Butler was able to showcase the understanding that Elvis was a performer. He was the best part of the film. I thought Butler gave us an amazing performance as Elvis.

Since the movie is told from the Col. deathbed, Tom Hanks narrates through much of the film. He is covered in heavy prosthetics and his accent very thick and carnival-like. A devilish of a character. I don’t care for Tom in roles like this. He is a great actor, but I am more of a Gump girl.

All in all, I would say it was entertaining. My biggest take away is that when I hear “Suspicious Minds”, I won’t help but feel sad for Elvis.

Disney • Pixar’s Lightyear Movie Review - “A Buzz Kill”

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Score: 2 out of 5
Rating: PG
Runtime: 1hr 45min

Lightyear arrives in theaters nationwide today, 6/17! See it for yourself. 

My family and I were so excited to see the Disney•Pixar’s Lightyear film. Sometimes, the anticipation of the movie can build it up and lead to a let down if the movie doesn’t in fact live up to the hype. But, that wasn’t even the case here. This movie is not out of this world, it’s a buzz kill! I left with no happy emotions, it was depressing.

This sci-fi action adventure and origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero who inspired the toy, “Lightyear” follows the legendary Space Ranger after he’s marooned on a hostile planet 4.2 million light-years from Earth alongside his commander and their crew. 

In 1995, Andy gets a “toy” Lightyear that is supposed to represent his favorite movie…let that sink in for a minute, this is that movie! Hmmm…it makes me wonder why Andy didn’t get a toy cat named Sox?!?

Buzz feels guilty for a mistake he made in the mission and spends the next 60+ years trying to rectify it. Tom Cruise pulled off a similar hot-dogging piloting maneuver in the recent Top Gun: Maverick movie with much success, it all felt eerily familiar. Except, Buzz didn’t make it and damaged the fuel cell in the process leaving the crew stranded on a remote planet. He then attempts to reach hyper speed to be able to take the crew back home and discovers that after his first failed attempt it was only minutes for him, but for everyone else on the planet, years had gone by. He is greeted with a robotic companion cat named Sox. Sox is adorable and you’ll grow to love this cat as the film continues on. It was really the main highlight. To make matters worse, however, things keep changing after the continued hyper speed attempts and Zurg arrives on the scene. We’ve seen this storyline before, a group of unlikely characters with a lack of skillset get paired with Buzz, it is a very odd combo for a kids movie too.

At some point, I expected to see the green alien guys have a cameo, but nope…another disappointing piece of nostalgia we were all longing for. The film concludes on a melancholy note and I certainly think the directors left room for a sequel. Maybe an additional film is needed to perk me back up!
