A Horror Movie For Theme Park Fans: Hell Fest

In the pantheon of theme park Halloween events, Disney’s is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Spooky. Universal Studios is Halloween Horror Nights. Scary. Disney is trick ‘r treating. Universal is haunted houses. If you want atmospheric, family-friendly fun, go to Disney for Halloween. If you want horror, Universal is where it’s at. And so, if you are firmly and exclusively Team Disney on this point, I suggest you watch something thematically appropriate. I hear people like Halloweentown. But if you’re Team Universal, read on, because I have just the October movie for you! HELL FEST = HALLOWEEN HORROR...

Meet The Robinsons Is Awesome & Here’s Why

WARNING: This post contains a major spoiler for Meet the Robinsons. If you have not yet seen this movie, stop what you’re doing and watch it right now. Please? As this post will posit, it is SO underrated. Here’s the Disney+ link. You’re welcome. I am a bad aunt: there is a dearth of games on my phone. While in search of entertainment, my niece was reduced to flipping through the My Disney Experience app. She enjoyed thumbing through the photos, playing the Tower of Terror animations several times before stopping on a race picture of me with Bowler...

In Which Jenn Marvels At PR Movie Theaters

I’m not gonna lie to you guys – I’m not a Marvel person. I respect the franchise – my nerdy little Star Trek-loving, Disney-obsessing heart could hardly do otherwise – but it doesn’t do a ton for me. I don’t mind if someone puts a Marvel movie on, but I only see them in theaters when Pat asks me to go with him. Which is how I wound up at a showing of Avengers: Endgame last weekend. First of all, can we talk about Puerto Rican movie theater prices? They are shockingly cheap. Admittedly our 12:35pm showing probably qualified for matinee...

Happy Friday: BADLADLADLAL!

I’m not gonna lie – I was kinda disappointed in Big Hero Six. I loooooooved Baymax, but he took a surprising back seat to the kids’ drama. If there’s a sequel, I’d probably see it, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to make it to a theater or anything. Unless I was promised 90 minutes of this: And that’s how I’ll be reciprocating all my fist bumps FOREVER.

Happy Friday: The Average Piece Of Junk

I recently showed Pat Ratatouille for the first time after he expressed an interest in seeing it. I remembered liking it at the time but it did not rank among my favorite Pixar films. I still wouldn’t rate it higher than Wall-E or Up, but upon my recent re-watch I think it may be just the sleeper to challenge Finding Nemo. The laughs aren’t as big, no. Yet to my mind, no single moment in Nemo can match Anton Ego’s final speech. A great artist can come from anywhere, indeed.
