They’re Creepy and They’re Kooky, Mysterious and Spooky – The Addams Family

I’m seriously excited about the Newest Addams Family Movie!

Admit it – if you were a fan of the original Addams Family in the 60’s – you just sang that title! I was a huge Addams Family fan and through the years have watched every rerun and every reboot. I don’t know who I loved more – Cousin IT or Lurch!

They’re creepy and they’re kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They’re altogether ooky,
The Addams Family.

Their house is a museum
When people come to see ’em
They really are a scream
The Addams Family.

So get a witch’s shawl on
A broomstick you can crawl on
We’re gonna pay a call on
The Addams Family.

The Original Addams Family

The original Addams Family was an odd clan who delighted in the macabre and were seemingly unaware, or did not care, that other people found them bizarre or frightening. The Addams Family originally appeared as an unrelated group of 150 single-panel cartoons, half of which were originally published in The New Yorker between their debut in 1938 and Charles Addams’ death in 1988.  

In 1964, a live-action television series, starring John Astin and Carolyn Jones, premiered on ABC and subsequently inspired a 1977 television film and cameos from the cast in other shows. An unrelated animated series aired in 1973. The franchise was revived in the 1990s with a feature film series consisting of The Addams Family (1991) and Addams Family Values (1993).

Here we are in 2019 and The Addams Family is still delighting viewers and gaining an entire new generations of fans!

Toy Story 4 – The Lessons We Learn From Toys

Be prepared to laugh – to cry – and to fall in LOVE with Toy Story 4! The Toy Story movies are ones that we all love, our children love, our grandchildren love!

Toy Story 4 Lessons we learn

Everyone thought that Toy Story 3 would be the end. It seemed like a perfect end and a great way to say goodbye to our beloved friends. When Toy Story 4 was announced, we couldn’t imagine where they would go with the story.

I’ve seen so many mixed reviews about Toy Story 4. Many feel it wasn’t a necessary addition to the Toy Story saga. I disagree.

Toy Story 4 feels like it was made for adults but is also a movie that kids will enjoy and love too. It feels like it was made for all those little 5 year olds that fell in love with the very first Toy Story movie in 1995 and who are now adults wanting to see what has happened to their long forgotten toys (friends).

Toy Story 4 Lessons we learn

The History of Toy Story

On January 19, 1993, production started on one of the most memorable animation films ever created…

This was to be the first ever completely computer-animated feature-length film. The technology to pull this off did not exist.

So what do great thinkers do when the current tech isn’t enough?They make new tech.

And that is exactly what Pixar did. On top of creating an amazing storyline, they were responsible for developing brand new hardware and software to execute that storyline.

Toy Story was released on November 22, 1995, and it killed at the box office. It grossed $192 million in the US and $356 million worldwide. That wasn’t the end of the Toy Story.

Toy Story 2 was released four years later. It grossed $246 million in the US and nearly half a billion worldwide.

Eleven years after that, Toy Story 3 came out and was a huge hit. It grossed$415 million in the US and $1 billion worldwide.

The lessons we have learned in the first three installments are ones that both children and adults can apply in our everyday lives.

Here we are in 2019 and Toy Story 4 is in theaters. I saw an early screening and here are my thoughts:

Toy Story 4 Lessons we learn

I laughed. I cried. I was startled. I was overwhelmed. 

The movie opens with a flashback to nine years ago (between the events of 2 and 3) R.C. is being swept down a storm drain. Woody and the other toys mount a successful rescue operation, but while they are busy, a mysterious man buys Bo Peep; despite Woody’s efforts to prevent the sale, Bo reassures him that it is part of being a toy to be taken away.

Toy Story 4 Lessons we learn

Forky is born

The movie then moves to two years after Andy gave his toys to Bonnie and Woody and the other toys are content in their new life. Worried that Bonnie will feel overwhelmed at her kindergarten orientation, Woody – who Bonnie has been neglecting – sneaks into her backpack, and his fears come to light as Bonnie becomes shy around her new classmates.

Woody covertly places a spork and other items from a trash can on Bonnie’s table during arts and crafts, and she turns them into a handmade toy-spork she names “Forky”. After Bonnie places Forky in her backpack, he comes to life, much to Woody’s shock.

And the adventure begins!

Toy Story 4 Lessons we learn

Toy Story 4 is full of fabulous new characters, including two plushies voiced by Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, and Duke Caboom, a motorcycle-driving action figure voiced by Keanu Reeves.

It’s during Bonnie’s last summer trip before starting kindergarten – to an RV camp alongside a traveling carnival – that the story really takes off. As Forky continues to try to escape his new owner’s affectionate clutches, Woody tries to tutor the newcomer in proper toy behavior.

Everyone in my family has their favorite Toy Story characters. My almost 3 year old grandson loves Buzz. He actually calls him “Bubble Buzz” because of the Buzz Lightyear bubble toy he got (and has played with endlessly) on one of his WDW trips. My granddaughter loves Jessie, my daughter is a Woody fan and I have always been a Mr. Potato Head lover.

I left Toy Story 4 completely in love with different characters. Forky and Duke Caboom are now up on top of my favorites list. It’s a mix of good, nostalgic emotional and sad emotional. It’s happy. It’s sad. It’s startling.

I would definitely say it’s the end of the line as far as the Toy Story story goes. It would be a stretch to get another story out of it. Woody has found his way to a life without his own kid. However, Pixar has a way with finding and creating a new stories so I as the saying goes – “never say never!”

Toy Story 4 is definitely the best as far as I’m concerned. It is for kids, it is for adults. It is closure for all those little five year olds that watched the very first Toy Story in 1995. What happens to all of my beloved toys when I grow up. Those five year olds who are now adults have watched through different installments as Woody moved on. They have grown up thinking of Woody and Buzz as friends.

The Toy Story 4 Lessons

Spunk, ingenuity, teamwork, loyalty and self-sacrifice. Listening to your inner voice is a theme throughout the film. The importance of friendship is in there too! It’s okay if we don’t know who we are as long as we are trying, and the only thing we have to do is be good to one another. The lessons are many.

Woven throughout the film is Woody’s quest to find a new purpose, since he is no longer the favorite toy.

I won’t tell you more about the film because YOU MUST go see it for yourself. Much of the story centers on Woody trying to teach Forky that he isn’t trash, but instead a toy with the great responsibility of comforting Bonnie as she makes her way through kindergarten. 

There is plenty in the movie to make any Disney fan smile, including Woody mimicking the pose of the classic Mickey Mouse telephone and a reference to Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride during the end credits.

The first three movies focused on the relationships among the toys and the bonds with their child. The end of Toy Story 4 has us thinking of the toys as more human and their relationships with each other.

The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part” arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack – Giveaway!

It’s time to go where no brick has gone before when “The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part” arrives on 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD Special Edition and Digital.

The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, “The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part” reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city.

It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are facing a huge new threat: Lego Duplo invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than they can rebuild.

WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW

Parents need to know that The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is the sequel to 2014’s hit The Lego Movie.

Like the original, it’s a funny, entertaining adventure that centers on Emmet and Lucy/Wyldstyle. This time around, they’re defending themselves from mysterious invaders who seem bent on destroying Bricksburg — and then kidnap several of Emmet’s best friends, including Lucy.

You can expect lots of action, including chases, fights, rescues, explosions, weapon use, dinosaurs, spaceship battles, and more. Since everything (and everyone) is made out of Lego bricks, the stakes never feel too intense — but younger or more sensitive kids might be upset when sympathetic characters are in peril or argue with each other.

Otherwise, content is quite mild, with a couple of uses of words like “heck” and “butt” and some flirting between characters (Batman also shows and sings about his pecs).

There are positive messages about perseverance, teamwork, friendship, cooperation, and loving people for who they are, not who you think they should be.

The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part” was directed by Mike Mitchell (“Shrek Ever After,” “Trolls,” “Sky High”) and produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Roy Lee, the team behind the LEGO film franchise since “The LEGO Movie,” and Jinko Gotoh.

Get Ready to Return to Arendelle – The Frozen 2 Trailer

I sat on this trailer for a day before attempting to put my thoughts here. I watched it over and over again and continued to find the trailer dark and grim. Not at all what I expected.

To be honest, I don’t know what I expected but I do know I didn’t expect Frozen 2 to be grim. Over time I think we have all come to think of Frozen as a happy story hugely because we know the ending and love the songs.

This initial trailer is not at all what was expected, but we all know that trailers can sometimes be deceiving, and we’ll certainly see more trailers with different tones and focal areas of the film before November.

This initial trailer feels a wee bit dark to me. It’s a wordless collection of scenes of the characters striving at various unclear tasks. 

And then there are the new characters! Who are they? How will they be brought into the film? The new girl looks a lot like Anna – is she a young Anna in a bit of a flashback? 

We have been told that Frozen 2 will again be a musical with original songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez returning to write the songs.

Officially we have also been told that Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and Olaf are going far into the forest to know the truth about an ancient mystery of their kingdom.

The end of the trailer does show our favorite characters walking together and staring out over beautiful scenery and seems to imply they’re going someplace. 

Disney will certainly share more trailers as the release date gets closer, along with an official synopsis that will answer many of our questions. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on this first trailer?

 

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen 2 opens in U.S. theaters on November 22, 2019.
