No compensation was received for this post. I was invited on a press trip to cover the film’s release and travel was provided.
As a single woman living in LA, I spent quite a bit of time alone, taking in the city's sights. I had all of the time in the world to leisurely explore and discover those places even the locals often overlooked. As I sat with The Blue... Read More »

It's 2 am and the house is quiet and dark, save the faint glow of light that pours in from the office door that is slightly ajar. The occasional ruffle of papers and keyboard tapping is enough to break the silence without waking the rest of the house up. I've always been a night owl, and not much has changed since my college days except that instead of writing ... Read More »

Of all the superheroes that have come and gone, it's Superman who's story I'm most familiar with. I spent many afternoons and evenings watching the films (and the subsequent spin-off TV shows) with my father, and for both of us, he was THE superhero...our superhero. It's been 6 years since audiences have seen Superman on the big screen, but in just 10 days the Man o... Read More »

If you’re not scary, what kind of a monster are you? -Dean Hardscrabble, Monsters University
What do you do when one door closes, and closes hard? How do you discover what you're really meant to do? That is the question Mike Wazowski must wrestle with in Pixar's animated film, Monsters University, slated to be released in theaters this summer. It's a questio... Read More »

Update: All of the tickets for the screenings in Houston, San Diego, Los Angeles, Miami, Phoenix, New York, and Chicago have been claimed. I still have family four-packs available for El Paso, San Jose, and Dallas.
An afternoon (or evening) out at the movies is one of our favorite ways to escape from the heat, and as summer quickly approaches there will be a sle... Read More »

We make the kind of movies we like to watch. I love to laugh. I love to be amazed by how beautiful it is. But I also love to be moved to tears. There's lots of heart in our films.
Eight years ago, Monsters University was simply an idea. Following the success of Monsters, Inc., Disney/Pixar knew that they wanted to bring Mike and Sulley back to ... Read More »

My son started Kindergarten this year, and one of the unexpected joys of our morning walks include the conversations we have about friends, toys, LEGOS, and snails (yes snails!). We live in an area that is seemingly overpopulated with snails, and at times, it literally feels like a maze trying to get to school without smooshing one of them. I digressed. During a rec...

Twelve years ago, Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan warmed the hearts of families in the hit film Monsters, Inc. But how did these two inseparable friends meet? They are an unlikely pair, and in Pixar's latest 3D-animated film Monsters University, audiences will go back to their college days and discover how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and becam...

Through April 30th, the theatre will present the film in Disney Digital 3D and Dolby Atmos (surround sound). In addition to screening the film, guests will have an... Read More »

No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls - Ingmar Bergman

There is a scene in Fox's soon-to-be released film Parental Guidance, where on-screen husband and wife Billy Crystal and Bette Midler break out into a seemingly impromptu song and dance number. The chemistry between the two insanely talented actors is so spot on, it's hard to believe they had not worked together prior to this multi-generational film with a timely me... Read More »

Disney/Pixar's Brave, now available On Demand, tells the story of Merida, the feisty, headstrong daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor who is determined to change her fate.

One of my favorite things about this season is the time we spend together as a family. Work typically slows down which gives us more time to go out and do things we enjoy like experiencing Disneyland during the holidays or simply staying home for a quiet movie night. This is typically the time when holiday-inspired films are released, bringing inspiration and cheer an... Read More »
