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?

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.

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!

SHOOTER | Season 1 Review | #TVreview

IMG_9973

Hey there, TV lovers!

If you’re thinking about catching SHOOTER on USA Network, stop thinking!! Just do it!! I recently caught the entire first season on Netflix and I’m hooked. I was a fan of the film (ft. Mark Wahlberg) and, considering the fact that Wahlberg is an Executive Producer for the show, I figured it would be a good one. I wasn’t wrong.

Ryan Phillippe plays Bob Lee Swagger perfectly. He’s a triple threat: smart, talented and family driven. Swagger, a talented sniper, will stop at nothing to protect his family after he’s framed for murdering the Ukranian President.

Phillippe also has a great supporting cast in Shantel VanSanten, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Eddie McClintock, Omar Epps, Josh Stewart and Tom Sizemore.

There’s action everywhere you look, but the action is driven (on Swagger’s side) by emotion, so there’s a good balance for everyone. To be honest, I thought this was the only season so far, so now I’m going to wrap this up and catch the second season on the USA app!

In case you need more convincing, check out the trailer for Season 1:

@Thisfunktional #MovieReview: BABY DRIVER

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

The fast-paced “Baby Driver” develops a great story quickly, makes use of every scene and captivates from the opening scene on.

The music can drive the movie on its own, but have characters develop and evolve through out the movie helps to get the audience invested in the plot.

Writer-directed Edgar Wright said that this was a story he had been wanting to tell for many years and it all started with music.

The diligent research he did made the story based on actual reality, but the pacing was driven by the beats of the songs.

The soundtrack helped him develop what would happen to each character and continue moving the story forward scene after scene.

Actor Jamie Foxx, who plays Bats, said he kept the music going between sets because it was important for the story, important for how the characters would react on screen and it made a difference when actors would need to hit queues.

Although the the cast have been on numerous sets for different projects, Actor Ansel Elgort, who plays lead character Baby, found the entire experience unique because everyone was committed to making this story exactly what Wright would be proud of.

Elgort also said that coming off “Baby Driver’s” set and onto his next project was difficult. He was able to play music between takes to keep the mood. His co-stars would look at him funny for playing music between takes as well.

After months of playing Baby and wearing headphones, with the scene’s music and sound effects playing, Elgort needed some time to decompress.

Actress Lily James paired up with Elgort well and was thrilled to play off of Elgort.

James brings out a vulnerability in her character which shows the trust she had in Elgort.

The movie seemed to be written for Elgort to star in, James said.

Actress Eiza Gonzalez and Jon Hamm play complimentary character which are only complete when they are together, and most of the time when they are on screen they are touching.

Gonzalez was interested in the fact that none of the characters tell their own back story, they each tell a bit of each other’s back story.

Hamm thought that by Wright doing that he was able to create the myth of each character and make Baby more of a legend, which works to bring compassion and some level of curiosity.

IMG_9167

Ooooooh … I’m excited for this one!! This movie has a great cast, a fantastic storyline and the trailer certainly evokes a strong interest in checking out the rest of the film. It looks like the perfect balance of action, drama and edge-of-your-seat craziness!

Based on the #1 Bestseller by the late Vince Flynn, AMERICAN ASSASSIN looks like it’ll be a strong contender among recent action films. What do you think? Are you as excited as I am??

AMERICAN ASSASSIN is set to be released in theaters on September 15, 2017!

SYNOPSIS: Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny.

In a movie world where male superheroes dominate the big screen, I think Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman has put STRONG, beautiful women on the map!

There is no denying that Diana is a beautiful woman, but she’s so much more than that. She’s compassionate, she’s determined, and she’s a warrior. As I was sitting there watching this movie I thought of my 12-year-old niece and all of the other little girls who might now be able to understand that beautiful and strong can absolutely go hand in hand with one another.

Overall I thought this was a solid release for the DC Universe. There were moments here and there where I felt like they were trying to remind viewers that she was a woman by having her get overly emotional when trying to persuade people to do what she felt was right. I don’t necessarily think that needed to be laid on so thick because it only allows male viewers to say, “Um, but yeah . . . women are all like that.” Being emotional is a way to show compassion, sure, but it was laid on pretty heavily in my opinion. Those moments made me want more of the strong-willed Diana discovering her true powers with no insight from anyone around her. There was some comedy sprinkled in amongst the action and I really think it was a perfect balance. I know some were a bit worried about how Gal Gadot would measure up in this iconic role, but I thought she really pulled it off! Chris Pine and the rest of the supporting cast were great too.

Might I also add that this bad ass, female warrior movie was also directed by a woman! Wonder Woman is a movie that empowers women and young girls, and also proves that women can stack up just fine amongst a world of male superheroes.

With all of that being said, let me say that this movie relied heavily on CGI, but considering the fact that this is based on a comic book character, you kind of have to go into it knowing that a lot of the movie is fantasy-based. Also, my friends and I waited until after the credits and there was no extra snippet at the end . . . just an FYI lol.

So make plans with your girls (and guys) and catch Wonder Woman in theaters June 2nd. If you head out this weekend, let me know what you thought!

Movie Review by Kristin: BAYWATCH | #BeBaywatch #Baywatch

What’s up, beaches??? Sorry, I just had to…

I got to see a screening of BAYWATCH last night here in Miami and, I have to admit, it was a bit better than I expected!

Now, I used to watch the BAYWATCH TV show back in the 90s, so my initial thought was Oh no, this is most definitely going to flop; It’s going to have cheesy moments of reflection that will kill the funny, etc. I can’t sit here and say that it was the best movie I’ve seen in years, but comedy-wise it ranks pretty high on my list.

SYNOPSIS: Devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchanan butts heads with a brash new recruit. Together, they uncover a local criminal plot that threatens the future of the Bay. 

Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson have amazing comedic chemistry throughout the entire film. Every scene they were in together had me laughing hysterically. Especially because Mitch (Dwayne Johnson) refused to say Brody’s (Zac Efron) name and, instead, opted for any boyband name he could think of.

The storyline was mildly interesting. The “team” takes matters into their own hands when Victoria Leeds (Priyanka Chopra) threatens their bay by selling drugs and ruthlessly killing whoever gets in her way. Honestly, I probably could’ve done without the dragged out dramatic storyline, but it did tie in with what the team was trying to accomplish, so I guess it worked in that respect.

I know many people are trying to find out if this movie is acceptable for the little ones to watch. My 12-year-old niece came with me and it wasn’t all that bad BUT there are a ton of dirty conversations, an incident with someone’s junk getting stuck between two wooden slats from a beach chair, and a moment where a dead man’s penis is definitely front and center. The scenes are definitely funny, but if you don’t want your child seeing a penis on-screen, definitely be on alert during the scene at the morgue. You’re welcome!

Overall, I thought it was a decent movie. Like I said, not my favorite movie of all time, but I think it’s definitely worth a viewing. Try to remember that they’re sort of spoofing the TV show, so a few of the action scenes are a bit far-fetched, but the chemistry between the cast and the comedic timing of everyone involved is what makes this movie worth seeing.
