Check Out These Fun Science Inspired Titles From Netflix Stream Team

Netflix Stream Team Kids

The end of the school year is rapidly approaching and with the spring comes science fair season! Personally, science was never my strong suit in school but I fell in love with the show MythBusters. I was never more inspired to create a science experiment - or at least watch as Jaimie, Adam and team did during an episode of Mythbusters. Thanks to them I'm full of fun scientific facts: FACT 1: Yawning really is contagious! Investigations revealed that our yawn mimicking possibly relates to … [Read more...]

Scott Waugh Makes a Car Lover Out of You with Need For Speed #NFSMovie

needforspeed528a47ef3561a

I might have mentioned before that I’m kind of an Aaron Paul fan. A really big fan. In fact, when I heard about the release of Need for Speed, it definitely pulled on my Aaron Paul heartstrings. I can’t say that I’m any type of car enthusiast, because cars aren’t really my thing, except when one of my favorite actors is the lead of the movie. So, there I was at the Need for Speed premiere, with my ticket in hand. It was bit surreal for me. As I anticipated, the movie was filled with … [Read more...]

Turn Sniffles Into Giggles With Daniel Tiger on Netflix

danieltiger-banner-img

Flu season has been awful this year. It hit our house not once, but twice. It was like Armageddon in this house. Our poor toddler had a cold ontop of it and we wound up at the doctors office. The visit went surprisingly well thanks to a couple episodes of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Daniel Visits the Doctor and Daniel Gets a Shot. In Daniel Visits the Doctor, Daniel goes to the doctor for his regular check up. Before his visit, he’s feeling a little uneasy – about one stripe scared, even if … [Read more...]

Top Holiday Movies to Entertain Kids on the Go

Netflix

Over the river and through the wood to grandmothers house we go. We may not be driving a one horse open slay but we do have plane rides, train rides and hours long car rides. That means layovers, 50 million replays of wheels on the bus and boring hotel stays. Basically holiday travel can be torture for young kids. Did you know Netflix can travel with you? We bring it with us on our iPad but it's also accessible on smartphones and other tablet. Plus, since we can create accounts for each … [Read more...]

Movie Review: Does Saving Mr. Banks Need Saving? #SavingMrBanks

-28

What's not to be excited about? Saving Mr. Banks brings the story of Walt Disney and Mary Poppins author P. L. Travers to life. With the film's limited release starting last Friday, lots of rumors and reviews have begun floating around about the screenplay and characters portrayed by Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks. Going into the movie, I expected to see a series of scenes recreating the making of the Mary Poppins movie with lots of whimsy and behind the scenes looks. To my surprise, Saving Mr. … [Read more...]

Take a Trip with the Traveling Travers Tour #MaryPoppins #SavingMrBanks

Paul Giamatti as Ralph

Before signing over the rights to Mary Poppins, P. L. Travers was swooned around Los Angeles by Walt Disney as he plead his case for making the film. In the new movie Saving Mr. Banks, the previously untold story of Travers and Disney's acquaintanceship comes to life on the big screen. To provide a most accurate setting, most of the scenes from the movie were shot on location at the Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank, California. I had to chance to tour the lot and compile this list of must-see … [Read more...]

Mary Poppins on Blu-ray with Tons of Bonus Features #MaryPoppins #DisneyFrozenEvent

Holiday traditions aren't big in my family. We celebrate Christmas wherever we are on Christmas morning, and watch whatever movie we feel like. The only thing that has remained consistent for at least the last decade is the great DVD exchange. I can always count on receiving a couple movies, and I tend to buy a few as gifts. We've had to start wrapping DVDs and Blu-rays in other boxes since we've become experts at recognizing the shapes. As you can imagine, my dad's DVD collection has grown … [Read more...]

Being a Prince with Santino Fontana #DisneyFrozenEvent

frozen5206dfa80cf45

Princes Eric, Naveen, Phillip, Florian, and Henry have all swooned leading lady princesses in Disney Animation in a tradition of finding love. Sometimes their desirability made it seem like even Mr. Wonderful would never be good enough in real life, but day dreaming over chiseled jaws still seems all the worthwhile. It's rare that you meet a real life prince, but triple-threat Santino Fontana proves the fairytale still exists. His repertoire includes the role of Tony in the original Broadway … [Read more...]

Throwback Thursday: Pete Menefee Steps Back In Time With Mary Poppins #DisneyFrozenEvent

Source

Let's take Throwback Thursday all the way back to 1963. Walt Disney, a rising entrepreneur and dreamer, obtains the rights to a book by P. L. Travers called Mary Poppins. After much debate, he sets forth on a musical adventure combining animation and live-action film. Among many songs featuring stars Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, a flurry of chimney sweepers dance and flip their way around the rooftops of London. In the dozen men who may be considered one of the most iconic dance troupes of … [Read more...]

Voice Acting 101 #DisneyFrozenEvent

-9

Before an animation begins, the cast hits the recording booth with the directors to perform all of the lines. Actors are given the script, and sometimes sketches or rough animation for inspiration, and then deliver their lines to an empty room with a microphone. It doesn't sound quite as glamorous as a red carpet, does it? Once the tracks are selected for the final movie, animators motion the characters to say the words in sync and behave with body language appropriately. I have a background … [Read more...]

Get A Horse! With A Fresh Look on Animation #DisneyFrozenEvent

GET A HORSE!

Lately, half of the anticipation for seeing Disney movies in theaters has been for the bonus feature that pre-rolls before the film. After Walt Disney Animation Studios outdid themselves with lovable Paperman, my expectations were high going in for Frozen. Get A Horse! totally blew me away with an old school Mickey Mouse flair, and what looked to be a simple animation turned out to be a highly involved process spearheaded by director Lauren MacMullan (who is Disney's first ever solo female … [Read more...]
