The Good and Bad of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on Blu-ray

The Good and Bad of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on Blu-ray

| September 15, 2014 | 2 Replies

Captain America: The First Avenger told the story of how Steve Rogers became the legendary Marvel superhero and The Avengers helped develop the character even further. Chris Evans does a spectacular job in the title role of his first two outings as “Cap” and absolutely shines in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but does that make this Blu-ray [...]

Capt. Cook’s at the Polynesian Village Resort just recently reopened after a lengthy refurbishment and several big changes were made. The most insignificant was the new decor of the seating area, which now features posters of the Polynesian islands some of the longhouses are named after (some of the longhouses are expected to be renamed).

Toy Story of TERROR! is the first of two Pixar holiday specials reuniting everyone’s favorite toys and when it aired last October, it was seen as a success.

Well, Muppets Most Wanted is finally out on Blu-ray after a not-so stellar run in theaters. 2011′s The Muppets was made for $45 million dollars and domestically grossed over $88 million, whereas Muppets Most Wanted only managed to pull in $51 million on a $50 million dollar budget. The sequel just didn’t have the heart [...]

Golden Oak Outpost has a relatively short history compared to other quick-service dining locations at the Magic Kingdom. Back in the ancient year of 2009, Golden Oak Outpost opened, replacing a frontier wagon-themed stand that sold McDonald’s french fries from 1997 to 2007 as part of an alliance between the two companies. Since opening, the [...]

Review: “Guardians of the Galaxy” combines humor, action, and a stellar cast to become the perfect summer blockbuster

Guardians of the Galaxy is the first film produced by Marvel Studios to abandon the Avengers characters, which have become so incredibly popular, and expand upon the Marvel Universe. It would’ve been easy for Marvel and Disney to continue making hit movies based on Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the rest, but instead they decided [...]

Let’s start off by stating the obvious – we are not the target demographic for Planes: Fire & Rescue. We are not between the ages of 4 – 10 and we don’t have any children. However, after watching 2013′s Planes, there is no way that we could sit through this sequel that was given the green [...]

A big criticism Disney fans have towards Universal is that the park down the street has nothing interesting enough to make them want to make the trip across town. Yes, Universal Orlando is known for thrill rides and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but there is a lot more happening at the resort than [...]
