Film Review “Incredibles 2”

Directed by: Brad Bird
Starring: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Samuel L. Jackson
Distributed by: Walt Disney Studios
MPAA Rating: PG
Running time: 118 minutes

Film Score: 3 out of 5 stars

When I saw the first “Incredibles” movie, I really wasn’t blown away. I know there are some extreme people that saw that it is one of Pixar’s best but I never and still don’t see it even after 14 years. It’s obvious a sequel is here but even though “Incredibles 2” is a smart movie that not only has a message but improves from the first film…yet I was left unsatisfied luckily my expectation were low. I will say that “Incredibles 2” is definitely an action packed movie. I just wish it was more fun. I wanted to laugh more for sure. I just didn’t feel like the cast was having fun. “Incredibles 2” runs nearly two hours, which is a lot for kids to stick with. My little one left the theater yawning (as did I). Second act definitely picks up some steam but too late I felt.

Official Premise: “In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.”

I just don’t see the fascination with these characters. I don’t like them, especially not in this movie. Mr. Incredible is a major egomaniac. I really didn’t like him in this movie, I know he is trying to be funny having “a men” taking care of his children while mommy is out working. I get it, the roles are reversed for the time that this film is timed in. It doesn’t make it any better that he is jealous of his wife’s success and honestly gives me a real bad taste throughout most of his scenes. I am glad that Elastic Girl gets a chance to shine this movie, even if it has a social commentary within it and it ended up being my favorite part of the film. I felt like it added an extra level to the typical superhero male driven story.

Frozone was used a little more this time but at the same time even less it felt like. I didn’t enjoy looking at (the Acid reflux guy was disgusting) or listening to any of the new characters that were introduced outside of Winston Deavor (voiced by Bob Odenkirk) and his sister Evelyn Deavor (Catherine Keener). These two nailed their roles for sure. I liked them but the other “supers” weren’t super at all. Jack-Jack definitely steals the show, no question. He is funny and super cute. Loved his powers for sure. There is a great bit with Edna and Jack-Jack that was a riot. So in closing, I am not a huge fan of “The Incredibles”, I enjoyed the sequel but it is not a favorite of mine. It is probably not something I can watch over and over again like we have with “Inside Out” or “Wreck-it Ralph”. But if you are a huge fan of the first movie, this will definitely leave you satisfied and wanting more.

Digital HD Review “Silicon Valley: Season 5”

Created by: Mike Judge, John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky
Starring: Thomas Middleditch, Josh Brener, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, Zack Woods
Episodes: 8
Release Date: June 11, 2018
Original network: HBO

Season: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Season 5 is all about changes for “Silicon Valley”, not only in the show but also behind-the-scenes. This is the first season that doesn’t have T.J. Miller in the cast but honestly the show still delivers with a shorter yet effective season. The returning series regulars Thomas Middleditch as Richard Hendricks, Zach Woods as Jared, Kumail Nanjiani as Dinesh, Martin Starr as Gilfoyle, Josh Brener as ‘Big Head’, Amanda Crew as Monica Hall, Matt Ross as Gavin Belson, Jimmy O. Yang as Jian Yang and Suzanne Cryer as Laurie Bream. Missing a lead, this season we got to explore a little more of the main cast but I would like to see some drastic changes in future season but I feel this current path might be wearing thin.

Season Official Premise: “The future is now. Pied Piper finally has enough funding for proper offices and new employees, and to bring its peer-to-peer internet to the world – but leveling up introduces a whole new class of obstacles. While Richard struggles to lead a larger team and play with the big dogs, the rest of the team adjusts to new staff, new digs and new anxieties. Meanwhile, Hooli rival Gavin Belson has returned to power, but finds the threat of Pied Piper, and its boldness, hard to shake.”

“Silicon Valley: Season 5” is available as of June 11th for Digital Download. The Emmy Award-winning show tightens things up a bit this season delivering eight 30-minute episodes. If you purchase on digital streaming services like Vudu, you get three extras including “Silicon Valley: Pied Pipers Highs and Lows”, which is short and runs 2 minutes. You can see where Richard and his Pied Piper pals are headed in Season 5 of the hit comedy series ‘Silicon Valley’ trailer included. Lastly you can take a peak back at Season 4 of ‘Silicon Valley’ in case you need a refresher or just wanted a quick recap of the season.

Lucha Libre Pro Wrestling Video Games Gain Popularity

What’s behind the passion for Luca Libre pro wrestling video games?

Lucha Libre, or “free fight” to give the Spanish phrase its English meaning, is the name given to the Mexican wrestling phenomenon. Its roots date back to the early 1900s when Mexico was in the throes of a revolutionary war against the infamous dictator, Porfirio Díaz.

As is often the case in times of war, the public craved diversions that distracted them from the reality of what was going on around them. Giovanni Reselevich y Antonio Fournier (two Italian entrepreneurs) seized the opportunity to promote a form of fighting whereby two opponents fought each other hand to hand without either protection or weapons of any kind.

It was an extremely aggressive and violent sport with little or nothing in the way of rules or regulations. These fights became known as “Lucha Libre,” and the fighters were dubbed ”Luchadores.” From its beginnings in local town rivalry, Lucha Libre soon began to develop an immense following, first throughout Mexico as a whole, and more recently across the world.

What makes Lucha Libre so popular

There are two aspects of Lucha Libre that set it apart from other types of popular wrestling. First, there are the masks that the Luchadores wear. These were first popularised by arguably the best Luchadore of all time – El Enmascarado de Plata, or “Saint, the Silver Masked Man.”

The other trademark that sets Lucha Libre apart from other forms of pro wrestling is the technical and acrobatic aerial skills that fighters display, particularly in the lighter weight (peso-semicompleto) divisions.

Lucha mania is now globally rampant and, the recently launched Lucha Maniacs Slot Machine is leading the charge. There are a many Lucha Libre games you can play right now, and here are snippets of just a few.

Guacamelee and Guacamelee 2 by Drinkbox Studios

The original Guacamelee (one of the so-called Metroidvania video games developed and published by Drinkwater Studios) was first released in April 2013 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Xbox 360. With its special brand of Lucha machismo, players pick up the role of Mexican farmer, Juan.

Together with his magical Luchadore mask, his mission is to rescue the daughter of the president who is the prisoner of a skeletal demon. The action takes place between the world of light and the world of dark, with the role player being able to switch between worlds.

For many devotees of pro wrestling video games, it remains one of the best ever made, and fans will be undoubtedly thrilled about the release of its sequel, Guacamelee 2. The action takes place seven years after Juan Aguacate’s original battle.

With an upgraded graphics engine and full of fabulous fresh fighting moves, this game tracks our now married farmer’s quest to defeat an evil menace that is out, not only to obliterate Mexico from the map, but time and space too.

With his powerful blue chicken buddy, Juan will take you with him through a world of dangers and fantastic new characters in this stunningly excellent follow-up to the original.

The Lucha Maniacs slot

Gaming house Yggdrasil came up with the great idea of combining people’s passion for playing slots, with the thrills and spills of the Lucha Libre pro-wrestling scene and they designed the Lucha Maniacs slot. It’s a 5-reel, 20 pay-line slot that you can play on all devices for just 20p.

This game comes complete with a free spin mode enabling players to start off with as many as 30 free spins. It incorporates random wilds, sticky wilds, stacked and wild wrestlers, and 3 x multipliers on Luchadores whereby you can accumulate more free spins, and shoot for its golden bet feature for larger wins.

Lucha Libre video games for kids

Between 2002 and 2005, American TV responded to the interest in Lucha Libre and at kiddy level by screening a cartoon series called Mucha Lucha. It was so popular that it was brought to the gaming industry in a video game for Gameboy Advance devices.

This is no doubt where many of today’s Lucha Libre fans first cut their teeth. At the time the game didn’t get the best of reviews, but lots of current LL game players may carry the guilty secret of their awakening to this particular brand of pro-wrestling.

The daddy of them all – Lucha Libre – Heroes del ring

Of course, no round-up of Lucha Libre pro-wrestling video games would be complete with mention of the daddy of them all – “Lucha Libre AAA – Heroes del ring.” “Heroes” comes out of the “Immersion” stables and was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 by Slang in October 2010. It was the first of the pro-wrestling video games to be based on Lucha Libre.

It uses real Mexican wrestlers as well as customisable Luchadores. Such was its success in Mexico that is was redeveloped by Sabarasa in Wii. It may seem a little outdated now, but it sparked off the Lucha Libre revolution and is still well worth a play.

Whether you are a devotee of the Lucha maniacs slot game or an avid fan of the Lucha Libre Britannia scene, there can be little doubt that this form of pro-wrestling is here to stay.

Theatre Review “RENT: 20th Anniversary Tour” Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Orlando FL

FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando presents RENT: 20th Anniversary Tour
Show dates: Tuesday–Sunday, June 5–10, 2018
Show times vary
Tickets start at $34.25

RENT is a Broadway musical that I have seen many many times since 1996. This show is special. It has always been special and it will always be special. It was a show that is ahead of it’s time and still as smart as ever. Having seen this show on Broadway numerous time and now seeing it for the first time at the Walt Disney Theatre at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and it was like I was transported to the first time I saw it over 20 years ago now! I have never been to show where the audience was literally sitting on the edge of their chairs, dancing and singing along like this! The cheers! The applause! It was literally magic! It was like seeing it for the first time again. This show is an experience! Do not miss it!

The cast of the anniversary tour really delivered for me. I had VERY high standards for these songs and the way they are sang specifically. I really love this movie. I have been listening to it for more than half my life. The cast at this theater gave it their all. They knocked it out of the park! Roger was a real highlight for me and Angel, of boy, Angel he was simply amazing! Some notes about the Walt Disney Theater that I have been noting over the last few months, sitting in Orchestra Left in Row J and around there, we had some of the performances cut off due to the angling. It wasn’t anything major but I think it could have been adjusted since orchestra right had a lot of unused space. In the beginning of the performance, there was a little bit of an issue with the music overpowering the singing but over the first song I did not notice it again.

The set this performance did remind me of RENT. It represented the show perfectly but I just miss that Broadway feeling of getting entirely new set each Act. We stay in one scene the whole performance and I was looking for something new each scene with some new objects onto the stage. But don’t let this take away from a magical evening, I can guarantee you there wasn’t a dry eye in the theater. The last thing I want to mention is that the range of age from this performance was outstanding. It ranged from early teens to senior citizens. I mean for a show to have that much range…this many years later is something special. RENT has been touring to celebrate it’s 20th anniversary for the last two years now and I don’t know when I will see it live again…and I encourage you to see this while you can!

Official Synopsis: In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway…and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love.

Film Review “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

Directed by: Morgan Neville
Starring: Fred Rogers
Distributed by: Focus Features
Running time: 93 minutes

Our Score: 4.5 out of 5 stars

“It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood, A beautiful day for a neighbor,  Would you be mine? , Could you be mine?” In the 1980’s these lyrics to the opening song in “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”, started my day as a kid! This is a show that I watched ALWAYS! I loved “Mister Rogers Neighborhood”. He was a very special person and there isn’t anyone else around like him today. I feel like the world would be a better place if people really cared about others. I mean really cared. We are way to skeptical people these days and times when “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” first debuted people looked to him, like myself, as a role model. They listened to him and trusted what he said. “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” is a fantastic trip back into the world of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”. Get your tissue box ready cause this one is guaranteed to hit those heart strings!

Director Morgan Leville, knows best for his His Oscar winning 2014 film, “20 Feet From Stardom”, which won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. He is back and this time focusing on a legend that perhaps doesn’t get the recognition that he deserves. This film is also quite an eye-opener. It makes you think about the world and how it’s changed and what we can do to help the future for our children. This documentary will actually make you wish you lived in a time when things were simpler. Daily, Mister Rogers would make sure to tell everyone watching how special they are for just being them! Now what is wrong with that?!. With all the hate and disgust coming out of the media and the world today, I don’t know how Mister Rogers would have fit in today’s world…but I wish his influences were recognized more. The film showcases a big part in the history of PBS and Fred Rogers, when he testified before Congress in order to get funding. If he wouldn’t have stood up for what he believed in and left his heart on the table exclaiming how he help kids and how he feels like he is an important part of their lives things would be much different since ended up getting the funding and changed children’s TV forever.

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” is a tight feature, running around 90 minutes. It goes fast and leaves you with happy tears leaving the theater. The documentary brings to light various issues that the show dealt with rather it be protesting or hiding sexuality of the co-cast and showcased some pranking on set during the production. I never knew that side since I was a young kid. The film has a slight edge to it, so I wouldn’t show this to kids. This is a documentary for adults, who were influenced in their life by Fred Rogers and the important work that he did. I really enjoyed getting to meet some of the cast from the show in the present and what they have been up to. There are tons of great archive footage as well with great interviews and behind-the-scenes content with Fred Rogers. One thing I take away from this movie is that I will be sure to try everything I can to keep his spirit alive with my own family and moving on! Good see this movie ASAP and remember to bring those tissues!

5 Powerful Gambling Secrets for More Winnings

Gambling is very popular among modern players. Moreover, one can bet in the offline format (regular casino) or online (virtual gambling establishments). Many players are “amateurs”, they make bets randomly and do not particularly hope for a win. In general, gambling is a huge science, and if you follow the advices of experienced online gamblers, you can work out your own strategy for a successful game:

  1. Choose a reliable online casino. Gambler beginners often cannot decide which casino to choose. Indeed, today the competition among gambling clubs at is really serious, but in fact it is very good for ordinary players. After all, in order to attract potential gamblers, each halt tries to provide the most acceptable conditions for the game. So for example within the platform http://slotmine.com/casino-adrenaline/ one can find a lot of privileges, which are different bonus programs;
  2. It is very important to choose an individually suitable game! The number of slot machines increases every day, but despite this – there are a number of entertainment that have been, are and will be popular. To learn how to beat the casino – pay attention to the selection of the device. It is impossible to name the most attractive games from the point of view of financial gain, as there is a certain balance, but there is also a human factor. Only by trial and error the gambler can determine which of the categories is preferable for him/her:
  •  Video slots – some cannot imagine their lives without classical drum machines with colorful pictures and bright amplitude of mood;
  •  Roulettes – gamblers with a penchant for exact sciences will evidently like the game of roulette, where success can be replaced by a precisely verified scheme or strategy;
  •   Lotteries – considering yourself lucky person? Then you should try your luck in one of the lotteries presented on the vast expanses of online gambling;
  •   Cards – knowing how to play card games? Well, in this case do not miss the opportunity to prove it to the public; play ​​in poker, blackjack, baccarat, leaving a soulless dealer at the broken through;
  •  Video poker – such an unusual crossing of the game of poker and video slots will give a lot of fun, but only for those who keep good luck on the short occasion, because without it, such games won’t be successful.
  1. Make bets taking into account current financial capabilities. Winning strategies (especially guaranteed) do not exist – all schemes that promise success are very relative and can work through time or don’t work at all. So you can hope for the favor of fortune, of course, but you should not rely on it completely, because everything is possible. Each gambler must determine for himself the amount and exact way of making a bet, and only then he should act, without going beyond the limits set. Risk – perhaps, the most unpleasant in gambling. One never knows what awaits for him – jackpot or the biggest loss in life. If the main goal is to have fun, play low stakes or virtual credits. If you really want to succeed in this area, you will have to put up with the losses;
  2. Learn the rules of the selected slot very carefully. Of course, all online gambler products have certain similarities, but there are differences between them. Therefore, before playing for real money, read the rules, find out the interest payments, bet limits and other “nuances”. If you know the arrangement thoroughly, it will be easier to win, and it’s harder to lose. By the way, in order to get acquainted with the functionality of a particular one-armed bandit, you can first practice with the demo mode. It involves making betting on virtual credits and will not let you lose. When you feel that you understand all the nuances, you can put real money. Productivity of the game in online slots largely depends on the correct settings. Most modern casinos give gamblers the opportunity to customize the game according to their needs and interests. For example, players can decide for themselves how many lines to play. Each slot has its own number of lines, which can be entered into the game using special keys. You can even play on 1 streak, but this is not advisable, since the chances that it will build a chain of identical symbols are minimal. It is much more rational to play on several bands, and it is better to activate them all;
  3.  The bankroll should be divided into several parts. After you have decided on the maximum amount for which you are ready to play today, divide it by the number of hours that you plan to spend behind the roulette wheel. Why is this necessary? To spend no more than the set amount every hour. Did the money run out before the set time? Have some rest, and then start a new session.

Following these simple tips, you can not only have fun while gambling, but also earn real money, which sometimes are not so insignificant.

Why Foosball Never Gets Old

When most think of an exciting sport, they may immediately jump to the high-impact fun of football. However, the fun doesn’t necessarily come from physically demanding sports. Foosball has been around for decades and plans to be around for decades more. It can be a great alternative to those who are looking for the excitement of sporting events right in their family room.

What is Foosball

Sometimes called “table football,” foosball is a tabletop game which centers around trying to get the ball into your opponent’s goal. While some sources date foosball back to the early 1880s, the game has developed differently over different countries in the world. Some believe an automobile engineer named Lucien Rosengart was the inventor of the game, while others believe that the game originated from a man named Alexandre de Fiesterra while he was recovering in the hospital from the Spanish Civil War.

When it comes to playing the game and foosball rules, these have changed over the years for each country. For example, American tables tend to be made of mahogany while French foosball is often played on a linoleum surface. While the American tables tend to enable players to win with sheer power, the German tables tend to focus more on ball control.

Why Foosball Will Never Get Old

Now that we know just how cultural foosball can be, it’s time to look at the reasons why this is one of the greatest games in the world! While we know that foosball is fun, there are a variety of reasons why this game has stood the test of time.

Foosball is affordable. One of the best things about this game is that it’s easily accessible. Tables can range significantly in prices, from expensive wood units all the way to incredibly affordable tabletop versions. Because the game is so cheap to get started in, there are options for just about anyone who’s interested.

You can play with others in this multiplayer game. If you’re not familiar with the game, you may not know how much fun foosball can be for groups. Because the rules are relatively simple, anyone can be taught the basics of the game in just a matter of minutes, and with team play, multiple people can join in on the fun.

Gameplay is relaxing. Because foosball is a game that requires little prep, the game can regularly be played without too much exhaustion. As a result, many choose to play the game after a long day of work or school. While it’s a great way to socialize with your friends and family, the mental health benefits of this game are impressive – positive social interaction in combination with relaxation can transform a bad day to a good one in a matter of matches.

Whether you’re a casual player or a regular foosie, you have to admit that foosball is an easy sport to love. Its versatility allows people to own a table without a massive investment of money, and the social aspect that comes with the game can have a huge benefit even to the most socially-awkward player. All in all, there’s no doubt that this game will be around for years to come.
