Movie Review: Experiencing Captain Marvel in ScreenX


I was invited to check out a screening of Captain Marvel in the ScreenX format. For those of you not familiar with this format, ScreenX is the world's first multi-projection theatre technology that creates a 270-degree viewing angle of the movie you are watching.

Before the movie started, there is a video that explains how the ScreenX format works. While you are focused on what is taking place on the main screen, the side walls have projections on them to create an immersive experience. Think of this as similar to a VR experience.

Once the movie starts, the immersive factor takes hold. The action sequences are stunning in ScreenX. If there is anything that breaks the feeling of immersion is that the effect does not last for the entire movie. I found myself having to re-acclimate myself each time the side walls came on.

Take a look at the below video to see how ScreenX compares to a regular screen.



ScreenX is an interesting concept and I encourage you to experience it for yourself. I hope in the future the format can be extended for the entire movie.

Non-Spoiler Review of Captain Marvel - Brie Larson Takes Flight


As we make our way towards Avengers: Endgame, we take a step backwards, to 1995 to be exact, to get caught up on that mysterious page sent by Nick Fury at the very end of Infinity War.


I will do my best to keep this spoiler free and will discuss plot points that have been revealed by the trailers or TV spots.


As Marvel's 21st film and the first female-led superhero movie and the first co-directed by a woman, Captain Marvel has a lot to live up to. And trust me, it was worth the wait. Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck not only shake up the timeline but also how the origin story unfolds.


Here we are introduced to Captain Marvel (played by Brie Larson) who already has her powers, though she has not truly harnessed all of them. She is a Kree soldier who is part of an elite military unit called Starforce. They are in a war with the shape shifting Skrulls. She has no idea she is Carol Danvers, as there is a huge blank spot in her memory. The Kree all-knowing Supreme Intelligence (played by Annette Bening) reminds her that there is a past that she cannot remember. Brie Larson is fierce and is perfect as Captain Marvel. Her performance stands out in an already Oscar winning career.

Live-Action "Dumbo" to Feature Arcade Fire's End-Credit Version of "Baby Mine"


The scene featuring the poignant lullaby “Baby Mine” was perhaps the most memorable moment in Disney’s 1941 classic film “Dumbo.” Serenading a touching moment between mother and son, the song featured music by composer Frank Churchill and lyrics by Ned Washington. “Baby Mine” was nominated for an Oscar® for best original song.

According to Mitchell Leib, president, music & soundtracks for Walt Disney Studios, he and the filmmakers wanted to create a version of “Baby Mine” for the end of Burton’s live-action reimagining that was as artistic and interesting as the film itself. “Not an easy ambition to accomplish,” says Leib. “Arcade Fire is an artist I’d pursued over the years—but this time I had Tim Burton! I pitched the idea to Tim and his producer Derek Frey, and it turned out Arcade Fire is one of Tim’s all-time favorite artists. The rest is history.”

Leib says the end result was perfect. “A brilliant, new, interesting, artistic and very original version of ‘Baby Mine’ now resides at the end of our new live-action ‘Dumbo.’”   

Arcade Fire’s Win Butler has a very personal connection with the animated film. “There is a scene with a locomotive in the original ‘Dumbo’ that uses an instrument called the Sonovox that my grandpa Alvino Rey made famous in the 1930s,” says Butler. “Every time I saw the film I thought it was him. When we were asked to do the [end credit version of ‘Baby Mine’], I immediately got all of my grandfather’s old guitars and wanted to play them in the song. My mom plays the harp on the track, my brother the theremin, my wife [Régine Chassagne] sings and plays drums, and our son even plays the triangle, as well as the rest of our ‘family’ in Arcade Fire. I will forever relate to the song thinking about the people I hold so dear that are ‘so precious to me.’ Listen for the cameo of my grandpa Alvino’s famous Sonovox at the end.”

Arcade Fire’s Régine Chassagne says the song and the movie are just as relevant today as they were nearly eight decades ago. “It’s a story we need to tell again,” she says. “A lot has changed since 1941, and we are still on that quest to allow for all people to accept and celebrate who they are on this planet.”

Sharon Rooney, who portrays Miss Atlantis in the new “Dumbo,” performs “Baby Mine” in the film. Directed by Tim Burton and featuring a score by composer Danny Elfman, “Dumbo” flies into theaters March 29, 2019. The digital version of the “Dumbo” original motion picture soundtrack will also be available from Walt Disney Records March 29, and the physical CD is set for release on April 5.

First Look at the Costumes for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland


As we get closer to the opening of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland, we got a look at the costumes for this exciting new land. The costumes are nothing short of exciting and game changing. Calling it "Mix and Match" the costumes can be combined with different pants and tops and can be accessorized with various hats, jackets and scarves. This will allow Cast Members around 20 variations for each costume. The planet of Batuu will come alive with each of its citizens. Let's take a look at the various costumes we will see.


First, we were treated to the costumes that will be worn by the custodial Cast Members. Gone are the all familiar white costumes and here the custodial Cast Members will seamlessly blend into this remote outpost.


Next up were the costumes for the female citizens of Batuu which I believe are for the merchandise Cast Members. All of the materials used are soft and lightweight and breathable which should make it comfortable even during the summer months on Batuu.


Then came the male costumes for the citizen of Batuu. The individual styles of each Cast Member really shine and will make Batuu feel like a real place.

ED HELMS TO NARRATE DISNEYNATURE’S “PENGUINS”


Ed Helms (“The Office,” “The Hangover” trilogy, “The Daily Show with John Stewart”) is diving in with “Penguins” this spring as narrator of Disneynature’s upcoming theatrical feature. The coming-of-age story follows an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he's targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.

“Disney movies are filled with poignancy and real emotion, but also are extremely funny and relatable—this movie is no different,” says Helms. “It's a true life adventure with real footage of penguins in Antarctica, but told in a way that tugs at your heart strings a little and also has quite a few chuckles. For me, this movie is a very cool mash-up of narration and character work. I get to voice Steve’s inner monologue as well as straight narration. It was a really fun challenge for me—a privilege getting to imagine what this penguin might be thinking—and I’m really excited about it.”  

Check out a video Helms recorded to share the announcement:



As an actor, writer and comedian, Helms established himself as one of Hollywood’s most beloved performers with scene-stealing roles on both film and television including NBC’s award-winning comedy series, “The Office,” and the box office smash hit film trilogy “The Hangover.”

“Penguins,” the first-ever Disneynature film to be released in IMAX® as the label, celebrates 10 years since its first feature film hit theaters. The film continues Disneynature’s conservation tradition: for every ticket sold opening week (April 17-23, 2019), Disneynature will make a donation to the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) to help protect penguins across the southern hemisphere. Founded in 2002, WCN invests in a select network of on-the-ground conservationists, including top experts in the field of penguins like the Global Penguin Society (GPS). The worldwide leader in science-based penguin conservation, GPS champions specific programs that align with Disneynature’s conservation mission.

From the filmmaking team behind “Bears” and “Chimpanzee,” Disneynature’s “Penguins” opens in theaters in time for Earth Day.

Restaurant Review: Eight Korean BBQ and their signature Eight Flavors of Pork Belly


My friend Kara and I were invited to Eight Korean BBQ in Buena Park. We both love Korean BBQ and we were here to try their set meal offering their signature eight different flavors of pork belly. This set meal is the "Combo A", easily the most popular item on the menu. The flavors include wine, original, black sesame, garlic, herb, curry, miso paste and red pepper paste. At the time of this writing the price for "Combo A" is $59.99, which can easily feed 3 people.


Besides the amazing eight thick cut slices of pork belly, you get a large salad, refillable side dishes, a huge seafood tofu stew and then mozzarella kimchi fried rice at the end of the meal.


As you can see I cannot get enough of the eight different flavors of pork belly! It is made for taking photos of!


Take a look at the large boiling pot of seafood tofu stew! Spicy and delicious that is perfect on any day!


One of the best parts of eating at Eight Korean BBQ is that it is full-service, meaning that you do not have to do any of the cooking. Let that sink in for a minute. You do not have to do any of the cooking! Our server cooked all of the pork belly as well as made the seafood stew and the kimchi fried rice.


Made in the same bowl that the seafood tofu stew was, our server then made the kimchi fried rice. She asked if we wanted cheese and we said yes. I know what you are thinking. Cheese on top of kimchi fried rice? The cheese melted into a gooey pile of amazing! I cannot ever remember any other Korean BBQ place making this and I would happily get this with the mozzarella each and every time!

An amazing meal that I cannot wait to go back to and eat again and again.
