IMG_6987

As the Easter Holiday approaches, why not start thinking about how to make it the most memorable one yet? One easy way to do this, is to incorporate your child’s favorite book, movie and television characters into your family traditions and in their all-time favorite activities. The list below will spin your Easter traditions in a new, fresh way that will make this the best Easter ever!

Easter Egg Decorating

I’m sure this is a classic on your Easter Holiday activities checklist, but you can try updating that a bit. Using the traditional pastel colors and bunny motifs are great, but this year let your kids choose their favorite character to recreate it on their eggs.

Paper Plate Crafts

Kids love paper crafts, and moms do too. No need for anything too fancy, expensive or complicated to prepare in advance. Instead, your kids can put their creativity to work! Try to encourage them to put the typical Easter bunnies aside and to create original representations of their favorite characters.

A New Type of Easter Egg Hunt

There’s nothing like the memories of hunting for sweet Easter treats, but you’ve done it so many times your kids might’ve come to expect it. This year surprise them by putting tokens inside the eggs that they can later redeem for candy, toys and any kind of collectibles.

Carrot Cake

It’s no secret that carrot cake tastes like Easter. Even for adults, the wonderful desert will bring back many memories of this holiday. This year let your children help you prepare this treat and let them get creative with the icing flavor, decoration, and even shape!

Afternoon Movie

There is a special place in our hearts for the movies we saw as kids. Don’t let your kids miss out and experience the best movies together as a family. Out of ideas?

A Mom Is On A Mission To Save Her Kids in BREAKING IN

BGN_Tsr1Sheet_0301_RGB_1This Mother’s Day, a group of thieves mess with the wrong mom!

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will do anything to rescue her children from a band of ruthless criminals who kidnap them before her very eyes.

In Breaking In, the new Universal Pictures action thriller from V for Vendetta director James McTeigue and producer Will Packer, Shaun (Union) takes her two children on a weekend getaway to her late father’s secluded house. When they arrive, she discovers her father had built a fortress designed with impenetrable security.  As she wonders why, criminals force their way in, lock her out of the house and hold her children hostage, demanding the contents of a safe.

Initially feeling powerless, Shaun’s maternal instincts kick in and she gets physical as she figures out a way to outwit her children’s captors.

When the ringleader tells her she is “a woman alone at the mercy of strangers,” she becomes determined to prove them wrong and find a way into the house to save her kids and herself from what looks to be certain death, even if she cooperates with the thieves.

Union shines in this action-packed suspense thriller as a desperate mom who will stop at nothing to get her children back and teach the criminals a lesson: no traps, doors or locks, and especially no man can match a mother with a mission.

The movie will keep you at the edge of your seat, rooting for Union as she tells the criminals “you broke into the wrong house.”

Breaking In co-stars Billy Burke (Twilight series), Richard Cabral (End of Watch), Ajiona Alexus (Empire), Levi Meaden (Pacific Rim Uprising), Jason George (Grey’s Anatomy), Seth Carr (Black Panther) and Christa Miller (Cougar Town).

The movie premieres May 11. Don’t miss this kick ass mom fight for her kids this Mother’s Day!

Movie Review by Kristin: ALLIED | @AlliedMovie #AlliedMovie

IMG_1810

What’s up, movie lovers?

I had some time yesterday to sit down and watch a movie, so I decided to indulge my Brad Pitt-loving self and watch ALLIED on Amazon Prime. It wasn’t my favorite Brad Pitt movie of all time, but the performances were fantastic!

The movie stars Brad Pitt as Max Vatan and Marion Cotillard as Marianne Beauséjour.

SYNOPSIS: In 1942, a Canadian intelligence officer in North Africa encounters a female French Resistance fighter on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. When they reunite in London, their relationship is tested by the pressures of war.

Ok, so here’s what I thought . . .

The first part of the movie had a fair amount of action, but, I admit, I was hoping for a little more. Max and Marion are posing as husband and wife in order to infiltrate and, later, assassinate a German ambassador. I just felt like there was this huge buildup towards the assassination and then maybe 5 minutes where they actually put the plan into action. Personally, I was more interested in finding out who these people were and why they were put together for this particular mission. I don’t necessarily feel like we ever got that answer where Marianne was concerned though. Even the relationship between Marianne and Max felt contrived as opposed to being able to see them gradually fall in love. When Max asked her to come with him to London, I thought it was still part of a mission rather than genuine affection for her. Sure, there was some sexual tension between them in the first part of the movie, but it just didn’t feel like enough for the relationship to continue on elsewhere. I wasn’t sure what was real and what wasn’t, but maybe that was intentional.

The cinematography here was great also. You really felt like you were in the scene with the characters. One of the craziest scenes was a birth scene where nurses rush the patient out in the street during a bomb raid to deliver her baby. With ash floating around them and fire in the sky, the baby was born surrounded by clapping nurses. It was rather unrealistic, but beautifully shot!

Overall, I’m glad I caught this though. The performances by Pitt and Cotillard were fantastic, but I’m a bit biased where Brad Pitt is concerned (don’t judge me). My jaw dropped at least twice throughout the film, which is always a great thing! I would recommend watching this at least once because it definitely held my interest throughout.

I was able to watch ALLIED for free as part of my Amazon Prime membership, but it’s also available on iTunes, DVD and Blu-ray now! Check it out and let me know your thoughts!

Movie Review by @mikethemovieguy: SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

 

Last night I finally finished watching SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING and MAN!! I loved it!! I thought it was great from start to finish.

I’m a fan of the franchise and for me…each dude that’s played Peter Parker – did their own thing. BUT…if I had to pick a favorite…it would be this one..Mr. Tom Holland. I thought he did a great job playing the high school kid AND Spider-Man. If that makes any sense. 🤣 All of the high school scenes were hilarious and all of the SPIDER-MAN scenes were bad-ass!!

Story was great. Action was great. Cast was great.
Michael Keaton was awesome…heck, when’s he NOT awesome. Marisa Tomei. LOVE.
Just a great movie all around. I’m ready for the Spidey movie. (lol)

I give SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING…5 OUT 5 POPCORNS!
