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...

Baymax

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.

Julie Andrews

In Which Jenn Sees Julie Andrews In Person

I have been working for a performing arts center for over three years. Never in those three years have I been as excited as I was when this very special booking came through: JULIE. ANDREWS. THAT’S RIGHT – last weekend I saw Julie Andrews speak. Like, actual, legit Julie Andrews. Like, Mary Poppins Maria Von Trapp Cinderella Victor Victoria ONE MAN’S DREAM REMEMBER DREAMS COMES TRUE JULIE ANDREWS. Are you listening to me??? JULIE! ANDREWS!!!! Tragically, restrictions on the number of people backstage made it impossible to meet her personally. But I did take a seat in the orchestra...

Pooh

An Ode to Winnie the Pooh

A couple weeks ago I chose Piglet & Pooh as my Marry for Kill/Refurb/Marry: Disney Partners. Naturally I had to go plumb the depths of YouTube for the perfect video to illustrate why. Shockingly, I did NOT get sucked into the YouTube vortex at that time – but my brain was ready to pick up the slack itself. But the time I went to bed that night, I was singing a rotating medley of both the movie Pooh theme: And the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh theme: And that made me remember the weird live-action Pooh show I have...
