Disney Store -New Merch

Hey guys!  Just wanted to drop in and let you all know that the Disney Store put two new Frozen doll sets up--an Anna and Elsa skating set and a DAC Elsa/Anna set.  While both sets are absolutely ADORABLE, I likely won't be purchasing either--they're a bit pricey, but they do have both sisters, so...not really I guess xD Anyway, the skating set is $34.95 and the toddler set, I believe, is $99.95.
In addition to this, there is a new DAC Aurora set and a DAC Rapunzel set for $59.95 each.  The Rapunzel set is simply ADORABLE, but I might be a lil biased :P
Anyone planning on purchasing one of the new sets?
Also, there is a sale up for a few toys--the link is on the front page of the Disney Store website if you wanna go check that out as well!

In case you guys haven't seen the Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer that "HYDRA leaked before its proper air date set for Oct. 28", here's the link:
Holy cow.
This movie needs to come out now.

What do you guys think?  Anyone excited for the movie?

Disney Store & JCP updates and movies!

Hey everyone!!
Just thought I'd let you all know that the Disney Store is currently having a sale on the Classic dolls - $10.00 each.  Of course, the Frozen dolls - which are now available -- are not included in this sale, and are still $16.95 (?). 
Also, they have some merchandise for Big Hero 6 up - including an 11" Gogo Tomago doll for $16.95.  I'm debating whether or not I want to get her at some point; I'll wait until after the movie comes out.  I'm hoping they come out with 11" classics for Honey Lemon as well! 
ANDDD JC Penney's has a coronation Anna and Elsa set - both of them for $25.  Of course, their outfits are much simpler and they don't have the articulation, but you can't beat that price.  You can also get free shipping to your local store. 

While I'm at it, some movie DVD release dates that are coming up:
Maleficent: November 4
How To Train Your Dragon 2: November 11
Guardians of the Galaxy: December 9

And, of course, Big Hero 6 is coming out in theaters November 7th!!!  Is anyone excited for it or planning to see it?  I won't be able to see it in theaters, most likely, but I'll be waiting [im]patiently for the DVD release, as always :P

Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie review

Hey, everyone!
It has been an INSANE week, but I managed to get some time to write a quick movie review for Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
In a word:  wow.
I feel like it is one of the greatest Marvel movies, but I haven't made a comprehensive list [yet] of the best Marvel movies :P
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the spoiler-free plot summary is this:
HYDRA returns, and Captain America must team up with the Black Widow and Falcon to take down HYDRA as well as the Winter Soldier.  Cap must also deal with being re-introduced into society, especially since it's the 21st century now.
That's it.
That's all I can say about the plot.
This is one of the movies that you just have to watch, and watch closely, in order to understand everything.  Also, if you spoil anything, it just takes all the fun out of watching it!

In The Winter Soldier, we are introduced to Sharon Carter //Agent 13, Sam Wilson//The Falcon, and...the Winter Soldier.  A less-known fact is that we are introduced to another comic book character, *SPOILERS DON'T READ PAST THIS POINT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SCREAMING ANGRILY AT THE TV THE FIRST TIME HIS FACE APPEARS ON THE TELEVISION SCREEN WHEN YOU SEE THE MOVIE*
Actually, I am going to have you just click and drag from the start of the next sentence to the asterisks, and once you highlight that sentence, you'll be able to read it.  Boom, problem solved..?   We are introduced to Brock Rumlow /// Crossbones.  
That blank spot after "...?" can be left blank if you want to be blissfully in the dark of this matter.  

And if you do read that "invisible" spot, you can comment with any questions, I'll be happy to spill my guts and all my hours of research...which may or may not include spoilers for the third movie.

ANYWAY.  With that said, let's move back to the actual review.  I just kind of geeked out there.

Let's see.  The movie was VERY intense, full of action, explosions, shooting, etc.  It had a lot of 'read-between-the-lines' messages in my opinion, but it was GREAT.  There was some swearing, but it wasn't overbearing, exactly.  Not saying I appreciate the swearing, but I'm not going to have a fit over them using it, because...unfortunately, it's everywhere.  That aside, it's also a very emotional film.  We are re-introduced to Peggy Carter, and let's just not go there.  We aren't touching the topic of the Winter Soldier.

And oh my word, the soundtrack.  The composer, Henry Jackman, created an INSANELY sick soundtrack for this movie, and by sick, I mean amazing.  I could listen to it forever.

Overall  - and I am SO SORRY that I didn't include any spoilers, but trust me when I tell you this: the less things you know when you watch the movie for the first time, the better--the movie is AMAZING.  10/10.  I simply cannot wait for the next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and I'm very excited - and concerned - for the Captain America 3 movie to come out...whenever that's going to be.

Has anyone seen The Winter Soldier?    Is anyone planning (by the way, I'm not sure why my tablet underlined that.  I told it not to, but it somehow did anyway, and Blogger doesn't want to listen... Maybe HYDRA has hacked my tablet...) is anyone planning on watching it?  Your thoughts, ideas, and predictions for Captain America 3?
