Disneynature Penguins NOW Playing in Theaters - A Must-See!

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


Score: 4.5 out of 5

Opening in theaters and in IMAX® on April 17, “Penguins” is a coming-of-age story narrated by Ed Helms (“The Office,” “The Hangover” trilogy,”The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”) about an Adélie penguin named Steve who’s on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he's targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after. 

Steve is a loveable character that both young and adult will connect with. The narration is very entertaining, funny and witty, it really feels like Steve’s story. The quality of the film is top notch. Disneynature far surpassed my expectations for being able to record and capture such incredible footage in that kind of environment was truly amazing to see on the big screen. All of the circle of life elements are done with class. I don’t want to give it away, but your heart will skip and beat...but the kids will walk out saying it was their favorite part. It is quite funny. Steve, the Adelie penguin is by far my favorite animal featured in the film. See it in IMAX, it is the first Disneynature film available in this format. Ya gotta see this, the kids will love it!

“Penguins” continues Disneynature’s conservation tradition: for every ticket sold opening week (April 17-23, 2019), Disneynature will make a donation to the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) to help protect penguins across the Southern Hemisphere.

The Kid Who Would Be King - A Modern Day King Arthur Tale Fit For Kids {Our Review}

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

The Kid Who Would Be King arrives in theaters January 25th!

*No Spoilers*

Score: 4 out of 5

Rating: PG for fantasy action violence, scary images, thematic elements including some bullying and language
Runtime: 2hrs

Synopsis
Old school magic meets the modern world in the epic adventure THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING. Alex (Ashbourne Serkis) thinks he's just another nobody, until he stumbles upon the mythical Sword in the Stone, Excalibur. Now, he must unite his friends and enemies into a band of knights and, together with the legendary wizard Merlin (Stewart), take on the wicked enchantress Morgana (Ferguson). With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be.



Review

The Kid Who Would Be King is set in modern day England. The plot is set around Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) and a group of kids from school; two foes/bullies and his closest friend. It is a modern day Sword and the Stone story and can be very predictable for adults in the audience. With that said, it is perfect film for the tween generation that haven't had a non-cartoon version of this story recently. The film is remenicent of Lord of The Rings meets Goonies quest. Kids will find it entertaining. My 11yr old thought it was, "the best movie he'd ever seen". I think the cinematic elements are just right as well, there are some scarier parts, but they will be handled quite well by the mainstream kids 8 yrs old and up. My 6yr old is sensitive to sad parts usually, but handles fighting ok as he has seen most Marvel movies and he was just fine with this one. There aren't any blood and gore scenes to worry about, it was lots of dark shapes and fire instead. Their quest is one of legends and it was nice to see Patrick Stewart (Merlin) in this role. The message is great for kids too dealing with courage, loyalty, perseverance, teamwork and so much more. It does drag a bit towards the end, but it is entertaining and the kids will love it!

Our Disney on Ice Review - Get Your Tickets to See Moana on Ice for the First Time!

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

Disney on Ice: Dare to Dream arrived in Vegas for opening night last night. My boys love Disney on Ice, so all 6 of us went as a family. My 11yr old son said it best; " Walt Disney became for childlike the older he got"; so, you are never too old for Disney. The skating is simply AMAZING! I have seen many Disney on Ice shows over the years and they are always a great time and entertaining. This show was a step above. We saw a few stories that were repeated, like Frozen, but they have to do that one every time, right? And I just loved Moana's debut. It was her first time on ice and Maui didn't disappoint either...fire on ice...hello! Great for the boys. So, if you think...been there, seen that...you haven't.

It started off with your favorite mouse, Mickey Mouse and his friends...they visited the stories of those dreamers...starting with Cinderella of course.



Then we visited the story of Rapunzel...I love this one with all the acrobatics. These skaters are very skilled.


Then off to Arendelle to visit the story of Elsa and Anna. I don't want to give all the excitement away, but we were all singing along.


The show ended with Moana's journey through the ocean. I loved the Tamatoa scene, lots of visually stunning lights and the costume was elaborate. There is a really cool fire scene too!

It's not too late to attend and purchase tickets here!

The show schedule is still as follows:
Friday, January 11 at 7:00 PM
Saturday, January 12 at 11:30 AM, 3:00 PM & 7:00 PM
Sunday, January 13 at 1:00 PM & 5:00 PM

Creed II in Theaters Wednesday, November 21st

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

"But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"
- Rocky Balboa

CREED II starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone opens in theaters Wednesday, November 21st. CREED II is a testament to the resiliency of the human spirit and the power of family. 

It is amazing how sports movies can really motivate you or drive you to the next goal. One of my favorite sports movies of all time was Rocky, the true-grit and determination that exuded in this film was a great motivator. I love the quote above, moving forward in the face of a struggle. There is just something about hearing that theme song, Gonna Fly Now, picturing him training, running up the famous Philadelphia steps that gets you pumped! Have you been to Philly and did that? It is on my bucket list. Or in Rocky III listening to Eye of the Tiger by Survivor, that is just the ultimate motivator. These classic sports films are just a true test of resilience. I loved Creed, the modern take and continuation of the story of Rocky in a new light as a mentor. I am excited for this upcoming film, Creed II.

Synopsis
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.
