If you love “Despicable Me” movies, you will not be disappointed in their latest film, “Despicable Me 3”. I most recently saw a prescreening in Los Angeles (don’t worry, no spoilers here), and we loved it! It had something for all ages. It’s funny because their new villain, Evil Bratt, is stuck in the 80’s and the irony right now is everyone from that generation is having kids right now so this is a tribute to them. My children are still crazy for minions, and just because these guys are little, doesn’t mean they can’t take on the big bad guys. The graphics were amazing, the story is well written, and adding a twin element was brilliant. Just when you think, what else can the writers do to surprise us, they introduce a twin brother. There is a lot going on in this movie, because his wife is also struggling to bond with the girls and she learns how to be a mother. This film is rated PG. Run time is 1 hour and 30 minutes and hits theaters every where Friday, June 30th! It’s going to do be a hit this summer!
We saw pre-screenings of Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” this week and loved it! Racing is Lightning McQueen’s life, but as newer, faster cars enter the competition, it is harder for him to keep up. He suddenly realizes that he might be forced to retire. Can personal trainer, Cruz Ramirez, get him up to the next level? You’ll have to watch it to find out. Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” cruises into theaters on June 16, 2017.
Producer Kevin Reher says the story is reflective of real-life champions. “Lightning McQueen has been racing for more than a decade,” says Reher. “He’s struggling with the kind of issues a lot of athletes face later in their careers. Do you go out on top or fight til the end?”
The hit musical movie, SING, is arriving on Special Edition on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on Tuesday, March 21, 2017! As a Fox Home Entertainment Insider, I received a Blu-ray copy to view, and one to give away to one LET’S PLAY OC! reader! SING is about unlikely friends who work together to save an old theater from shutting down. The movie starts out with live auditions for a singing competition, and it receives an overwhelming response, because of the grand prize money. Each of the characters have their own challenges in their own personal life holding them back from being discovered. I really enjoyed seeing this movie in theaters over the holidays with my family. Here’s more information about the movie…
We went to an advance screening of this film. If you’ve been on the fence about the new Disney Cinderella movie, you are not alone, because we have been too. It’s really hard to recreate a timeless classic without tearing it up into pieces, however, the new film not only preserved the classic, it added elements that helps us appreciate the classic even more. For example, it went further back into Ella’s happy childhood when her beloved mother and father were still alive. How does her Dad meet her Stepmother? We also learn more about the Prince’s prior commitments to marry for benefits and power. Will he be able to … READ MORE >>
Last week we went to a pre-screening of the new Disney movie, “Big Hero 6“, and LOVED it! From the team behind “Frozen” and “Wreck-It Ralph“, Walt Disney Animation Studios don’t disappoint. It’s a heart-felt story about a talented boy (Hiro Hamada) that have lost his way, but after visiting his brother’s talented school, found a reason to go back to school. He is then introduced to his brother’s genius invention, a loveable medic-robot (Baymax), who is designed to provide medical assistance. The film is comical, creative, adventurous, and visually stunning! Who would have thought San Fransokyo ever existed? (San Fran + Tokyo = Amazing!) When tragedy befalls, Hiro transforms … READ MORE >>
