Potentially the Most Important Website of All Time!

So last weekend, I'm watching "Cowboys and Aliens" for the first time. My Dad sent it to me in the mail along with "Prometheus" and I was instantly invested in the movie. I love sci-fi, Jon Favreau and westerns. So, this was a very happy cinematic trifecta for me. There was only one problem. The dog.

I have a major over-sensitivity to violence against animals in movies and television. Or, you know what? I'm just gonna say it. Maybe I have the correct amount of sensitivity to it and the rest of you sickos are the freaks who can stand watching that kind of stuff without getting upset. But one misplaced horse whinny, dog squeal or cat yowl in a flick and I'm out. SO. Then I find this:

Here's what I love about it. 

1. It doesn't spoil the movies! I've ruined many a horror film for myself trying to skim through spoilers over at themoviespoiler.com just to see if there is any violence toward animals.

(Or too much violence toward people for that matter. I can do creepy and monsters and ghosts and what-not, but not torture or stalking or murder. Unless of course, it's a mystery. In which case, murder away. Magnum P.I. Poirot will take care of business.) But this website has a simple icon system. There are three cartoon dog faces. 

Happy looking dog = no violence at all. 

Frowny faced dog = Violence toward animals, but pet ultimately lives. 

Dog crying = At least one dead pet. 

2. Oh...uh, I guess that's pretty much it. 

I'm telling you, this website changes my life. My whole life, I say!!!


I like this.

I like it very much.

I could use a little Eowyn in my life right now. Ooh! Put that to the tune of, We Need a Little Christmas, and you'll have a super weird song running through your mind all day.



Disney World's New Fantasyland is Literally a Wish Come True

A gargoyle guardian of Beast's castle.
A little over two years ago, I wrote THIS BLOG ENTRY about wishing that there was a walk-through enchanted castle from Disney's animated "Beauty and the Beast".

Guess what I got to walk through last weekend?

The new Fantasyland isn't technically open to the public yet, but we live a whopping half hour from the Magic Kingdom and we're just nerdy enough to have annual passes.

When a friend texted to tell us that the new Fantasyland was in a Dress Rehearsal (meaning that you could go in, ride rides and see sights with the expectation that there might be technical difficulties here and there) we hot footed it over there.

And the pictures we got that night were pretty exciting. Click on READ MORE below to see all of our photos.


What Your Top 5 Movies Say About You

Headlines like the one I just wrote usually make me gag. In this case, I'll suffer through the clickbait cliche, because it's a decent description of the process I'm about to walk you through. I had a film theory teacher in my undergrad years who taught us to rewrite our top ten lists annually. Why? Because our choices tend to reflect something about where we are in life.

If you're the type who likes revealing self-help exercises, I'd pause to do this now. Grab a scrap of paper and a pen. Write quickly. Don't think too hard. Because once you learn what the trick is, there's no way to do it without cheating.

So do it! I'll wait. Just click through below when you're done...
