Who’s Your TV Daddy?

Alan Thicke’s passing leaves many of us reminiscing back to calmer, gentler evenings where the family gathered around the TV every night to watch the next installment of their favorite sitcom. And for many families that sitcom was Growing Pains.  I wasn’t as invested in the show as I was others, but I can still hear snapshots of Dr.Continue reading “Who’s Your TV Daddy?”

Let’s Be Honest About “Cars”

I don’t need to open my mouth even a little for you to know that I’m a ginormous Pixar fanatic. Everyone is a Pixar fan, but I’m a fa-na-tic.

But this Paul Rudd-led film was anything but aContinue reading “Make This Your Next Netflix Movie”

Here’s a little background on that merger, and if you have Time Warner, the pieces will fall together, explaining why your bills have taken such drastic jumps, why your cable keeps cutting out for no logical reason, yourContinue reading “Cable Company Games”

Silly Rabbit, Animated Movies Aren’t (Just) for Kids

  Zootopia is Disney’s 55th animated feature film, and it broke records as being the highest grossing Disney animated opening of all time. Why is that? Personally, I think it’s because Disney has been delivering better and better films after their decade of mediocrity (1995-2004). The animation powerhouse, with the help from Pixar geniuses, has worked hardContinue reading “Silly Rabbit, Animated Movies Aren’t (Just) for Kids”
