The Croods: Discover the World Beyond Their Cave

While watching “The Croods” we wondered what inspired the filmakers to create such an original tale: a caveman family surviving a rapidly changing pre-historic world. The movie follows the Croods when they are forced out of their cave due to an earthquake that destroys their home. Through a very funny and entertaining “road trip” the Croods discover the world that lies beyond their cave. However, not everything is peachy. The family is being pulled in different directions.

An Interview With Maria Antonieta De Las Nieves About Her Role in ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ {Giveaway}

This past week we were invited to attend the magical Disney Animation Studios for the release of “Wreck-it Ralph” on 4-disc Blu-ray combo pack. “Wreck-it Ralph” tells the story of Ralph, a muscular, video game “bad guy” who stars in a video game of the same name.

The Women That Make OZ The Great and Powerful

As I sat in the theater watching Disney’s “OZ The Great and Powerful” one phrase came to mind: “Behind every great man there’s a great woman.”  In director Sam Raimi’s vision of the origins of the beloved wizard from Frank L. Baum’s “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” books, there are actually three great women, plus one precious China Girl, that help reveal the true greatness and power of Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician who’s unmoral ways lead him to aRead More ...

  We were invited by 20th Century Fox and Dreamworks Animation to a very special screening and behind-the-scenes look of the 3D animated family flick, The Croods. We were so thrilled that this film has a character that can appeal to everyone in the family, as well as a very rich and relatable story. The Croods is not just a series of funny moments for our kids and us, it’s not just about an anxious teenager, and it’s not just about theRead More ...

A Movie Full of Soul: ‘Bless Me, Ultima’

“Bless Me, Ultima,” based on Rudolfo Anaya’s best-selling Chicano novel of all time, will be released to more than 200 theaters across the nation this February 22. The film adaptation of Bless Me, Ultima, rated PG-13, is an important milestone in movies with topics focusing on Latino families since this Mexican-American coming-of-age book has been banned or challenged from being taught at many schools or offered in some libraries because it contains adult language. The movie version now brings this important storyRead More ...

When SpanglishBaby was invited to see the new 3D animated film Escape from Planet Earth we were happily surprised to see that it’s an action-packed movie all about familia.
