Big Hero 6 Movie Review

Big Hero 6 Movie Review
I was privileged to see a preview of the Big Hero 6 movie last weekend. I keep signing up for those previews that are available to the public and press where movie studies show the full movie ahead of its release to generate some buzz and give the press time to write a story so the review is available before the movie is actually released. This is the first one I actually made it to. Hopefully, it won't be the last, as going to the movie theater isn't exactly cheap these days.

Big Hero 6 is a comedy-adventure from Walt Disney Animation Studios. It is loosely based off the Marvel comic of the same name. Since Disney acquired Marvel, expect to see Disney reaching into some of their lesser known comics. That isn't a bad thing, just how they start a new story line instead of creating another sequel. 

The featured character of the movie is an inflatable robot named Baymax. At first, my 7-year old son thought he looked like a big marshmallow with a smaller marshmallow head, but he later informed me that wasn't the case after all. The other main character is a prodigy named Hiro Hamada. He has to avenge his brother's death after a terrible accident in San Fransokyo. Hiro turns his earlier bot fighting skills into helping turn a ragtag fleet of his brother's friends into a high tech group of heroes called Big Hero 6. He then works with the whole group to save the world. End of story.

Toy Story 4 is Coming

Save the date, June 16th, 2017. That's when the next phase of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the "Toy Story" gang comes to life. I'm still amazed at home far in advance they schedule these things. Actually, I'm more amazed at how much Disney milks Pixar's movies for sequels instead of coming out with new stuff. How soon til the sequel to Big Hero 6 comes out?
Nearly two decades after Pixar Animation Studios created the world’s first computer-animated feature film with “Toy Story,” it revealed plans for Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” an adventure that returns audiences to the world of the studio’s signature characters.

Try Caviar for Local Restaurant Delivery
Do you ever do group ordering of food from the office (or home) to bring in lunch or have last minute catering needs? The website is available in several big cities like Boston, Chicago, LA, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC that basically allow you to share a cart and let everyone order on their own from area restaurants. Provided you're in their delivery region, they'll then deliver it to you during the requested time window.

For each available region, you can order from many of the local restaurants, and people can pick from any of the available items from any of the available restaurants. There is supposedly no minimum.

Comparing prices, they seem to tack on 50 cents per menu item and have a $5 or $10 delivery fee, but your first order has no delivery fee, for now. And you can track your order via GPS, too.

Looks like an interesting service, IF you are in their delivery region, which seems to be small in each area. Some cities like San Francisco have multiple delivery regions.

Busy Saturday? Best Buy has a three hour holiday event, trying to push the start of holiday shopping even earlier this year. With great deals and expert advice available, we're looking forward to cross a few items off our list if the price is right. With some of the higher demand items, inventory is key, so, if the deal is special, we might consider buying now and crossing the item off our list, versus waiting for a better deal later. We seem to always be looking at electronics each Christmas, if the price is low enough.

Review of The Game of Life: Dogs Edition

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Review of The Game of Life: Dogs Edition
I've done several giveaways and game reviews in the past for Winning Moves Games. One of the games I got from them to review is The Game of Life: Dogs Edition. Unfortunately, the Dogs Edition game isn't available from them any more, but do check them out if you need to pickup what I like to call classic games, that you might remember from your childhood, vs. any of the newer games, though they do have some newer stuff, too. They do offer the classic Life game if you're interested in that, instead of the dog version.

If you're not familiar with The Game of Life, the premise is to go around the board, getting a job, getting married, and starting a family. Obstacles come up along the way where you must pay for various life events that happen, or get cash for them, from the bank or other players. Now, imagine the game where everything evolves around the dog. You have puppies, bury bones, chase squirrels/skunks. You can even take your dog's picture and use it as your token (or at least in the back of your car).

Gambrell Classic Australian Sheepskin Rug Review

Gambrell Classic Australian Sheepskin Rug Review

Free Shipping Day is Coming

Free Shipping Day
Now that Halloween is over, I keep hearing about Black Friday deals. What seems like the biggest dollar-wise shopping day has moved much closer to Christmas though. One such big deal is what is dubbed Free Shipping Day, where many of the web's retailers don't charge shipping fees in the hopes of getting more sales. It tends to give them enough time to ship standard delivery and still get there in time for the big day. will have details on who has free shipping when, with no minimum ordering requirements.
