Release Day Tuesday: Big Hero 6: The Series - Back In Action! DVD


Yes, I'm well aware that today is Wednesday and not Tuesday. I meant to have this post published yesterday, but due to some computer issues, I'm just now posting it.

Anyway, Big Hero 6: The Series - Back In Action! arrived on DVD yesterday from Disney Home Entertainment, featuring the 44-minute Disney Channel Television Movie and six 22-minute episodes. Bonus features include 6 shorts - Baymax and Hiro; Baymax and Wasabi; Baymax and Go Go; Baymax and Fred; Baymax and Honey Lemon; and Baymax and Moch.



The adventures continue for tech genius Hiro Hamada and his healthcare companion, the lovable, inflatable Baymax! Picking up right before the end of the film, Hiro thinks Baymax is lost forever, until he finds the chip Tadashi designed to create Baymax. Hiro immediately gets to work rebuilding Baymax, but Hiro’s overconfidence and impatience get him into trouble. The stakes are raised for Hiro, Baymax and their friends – adrenaline junkie Go Go, control freak Wasabi, chem whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred – as they fight to protect San Fransokyo as the legendary superhero team Big Hero 6.
Voice Cast: Ryan Potter as Hiro; Scott Adsit as Baymax; Jamie Chung as Go Go; Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon; Khary Payton as Wasabi; Brooks Wheelan as Fred; and Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass


Top Non-Touristy Destinations in Thailand That You Must Explore



Thailand is one of the most popular tourist destinations currently, It is known for its happening nightlife, economical shopping options, scrumptious foods, dense forests, diver wildlife and pristine beaches. That being said, what irks most travel enthusiasts is the little solitude for exploration in peace with so many tourists and over-crowded sights. Probably, the abundance of attractions in the country and that too at pocket friendly pricing attracts tourists in large numbers all around the year.

Fortunately, there is more to Thailand, than the popular Pattaya, Bangkok and Phuket. There are some of the much more exotic and picturesque destinations in the country, that are hidden gems and are not as touristy. If you are a travel enthusiast and want to explore Thailand while you stay away from the bustle and crowd, here are a few great options that you should not miss out.

Koh Samui

Although the island has started to attract some tourist attention in the recent past, it is still not as crowded as Phuket or Pattaya. Most tourists that come here are either wealthy luxury travelers or solo travelers who are in search of some secluded relaxation. This keeps the overall atmosphere of the island more natural, calm and peaceful. Koh Samui is a beautiful island that is dominated by beautiful white sand beaches and dense rain forests.

Contrary to popular myth, it is not dull and boring and have many attractions and Samui Tours that you can pick and choose from. If you are looking for something beyond beaches, go explore the iconic Buddhist temples, the beautiful wild life parks or have the ziplining experience for some adrenaline rush.

Krabi

Just like Koh Samui, Krabi attracts a few visitors but they are much less in number compared to the neighboring Phuket. Again, most tourists that drop by Krabi are those who want to stay away from the noise and crowd in Phuket. If you do not have the time or budget to go to Samui, Krabi offers a good alternative. Krabi comprises of Ao Nang and Riley Beaches. If you are looking for something more whitish and exotic than Riley is a better option, although it is pricier of the two at the same time.

Koh Lipe

One of the more remote and a rather less explored islands, Koh Lipe is popularly known as the Maldives of Thailand. With its pearl white sand and lush green back drop, the island has little night life but exotic and lavish accommodation options that will give you a true beach experience. The island is so enthralling that it even attracts visitors from the nearby Malaysian islands for day trips or short stays just to experience the beauty that lies on this paradise.

A Study in Terror Blu-ray Review

Mill Creek Ent., 95 minutes; $14.95


Here are two facts about me that you probably didn't already know:

1. I'm a big fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories.

2. I've always been fascinated with Jack the Ripper.

So, with that being said, I guess you can say I was looking forward to watching the underrated 1965 British thriller A Study in Terror, which was recently released on Blu-ray from Mill Creek Entertainment.

Directed by James Hill, the film stars John Neville and Donald Houston as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, the famous England Detective Duo who find themselves on the hunt for a madman, a.k.a Jack the Ripper!

With Scotland Yard baffled by the horrifying murders of several prostitutes, Sherlock makes it his personal quest to unravel the mystery after a strange package arrives at his Baker Street home. While Dr. Watson would prefer not to get tangled up in Jack the Ripper's legacy, he tags along with Sherlock through the dark alleys of nineteenth century London, where they stumble upon a world of aristocracy, blackmail, and terror!

DVD Review - Flower

Lionsgate; Rated R; 90 minutes

Why is it I don't watch very many indie films? I don't exactly have an answer to very my own question, except for the little fact that many of the films just don't intrigue me. If a movie catches my attention, then I'll most likely watch it.

The comedy-drama "Flower" was released to DVD yesterday by Lionsgate, which happens to be a low-budget indie film. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2017 and received a theatrically release back in March. This type of movie would have easily went under my radar, if it wasn't for me receiving a press release about the DVD.

Co-written and directed by Max Winkler, Flower stars Zoey Deutch (Before I Fall, Why Him?), Kathryn Hahn (TV’s “Transparent,” Bad Moms, TV’s “Parks and Recreation”), Tim Heidecker (TV’s “Tim and Eric’s Bedtime Stories”), and Adam Scott (Step Brothers, TV’s “Big Little Lies” and “Parks and Recreation”).

The film centers on Erica Vandross, a complicated and bold teenage girl who spends her after-school hours prostituting herself to older men and then she blackmails them with a little help from her two friends, Kala and Claudine (played by Dylan Gelulaz and Maya Eshet). What is she doing with all the cash she's making? Well, she's saving money to help bail her estranged father out of jail.

Erica's life is forever changed when her mother's boyfriend's son, Luke (played by Joey Morgan), is released from rehab. Luke is a depressed teenager who finds solace in food. His father (played by Tim Heidecker) has tried to get him help, but nothing seems to change Luke's depression. Well, that is until Erica works her charm on him. It turns out that Luke was sexually abused by Will (played by Adam Scott), a junior high teacher. Though he did report the abuse to the police, there was not enough evidence to press charges against the teacher.

To help her possible future stepbrother, Erica comes up with an insane idea that will expose Will's dark secret. However, things don't go as planned.

Q&A with Gary D. McGugan, author of The Multima Scheme



Amazon

Can Multima Corporation withstand another attack from organized crime? While billionaire John George Mortimer copes with treatment for cancer, the accomplished CEO must also ward off challenges for control of his sprawling fictional American empire both from within the company and from nefarious powers operating outside the law.

The Multima Scheme is a fast-paced account of the lengths to which organized crime can infiltrate large global corporations and seize control of respected businesses to conceal activities that are both illegal and immoral but generate billions. It’s also a story of survival – how individuals and organizations might react under intense pressures and the ease with which people can cross lines between what’s legal and what’s not.

Using his knowledge of how large multinationals operate – accumulated over 40 years working with major corporations around the world – author Gary D. McGugan weaves a tale of intrigue using a writing style that readers will find hard to put down once started.


What group did you hang out with in high school?

We were a small group that people today would probably think of as nerds. We were all members of the school debating club and loved arguing passionately both in competition and for personal enjoyment. We actually tried to carry on serious conversations in Latin or French. And we spent hours probing the mysteries of life and philosophy. No world problems were completely resolved, though a great many were tackled!

What are you passionate about these days?

Learning. I’ve been a lifelong advocate of continuous learning and use every opportunity to encourage people around me to remain curious, ask questions, challenge accepted wisdom, and read everything possible!

If you had to do your journey to getting published all over again, what would you do differently?

I would have tried to do it all quicker. Yes, I should have made writing a priority sooner. Once started, I should have devoted more time and energy to the project. After the manuscript was complete, I should not have procrastinated with my publishing decisions. Regardless, the experience has been rewarding on many levels.

eBook or print? And why?

Both. eBook is a wonderful format when traveling. One small device can hold dozens of works that otherwise would be prohibitive to carry. But there remains a certain satisfaction holding a book as one reads, particularly a hardcover version.

What is your favorite scene in this book?

There is a scene towards the end of The Multima Scheme when John George Mortimer is under extreme pressure during sensitive negotiations. I like that scene because readers clearly see his strength of character as he negotiates with the same finely-honed skills others might use playing a game of chess.

Summer Review: Goosebumps Slappyworld: Please Do Not Feed the Weirdo

Scholastic; 152 pages; $7.99; Amazon

It's a great year to be a Goosebumps fan, as there will be a new movie, titled Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween, being released to theaters in October. Until then, you can by your time by reading the new installments of the Goosebumps Slappyworld series.

Early this year, Scholastic released Goosebumps Slappyworld: Please Do Not Feed The Weirdo by R.L. Stine, which is the 4th entry in the spinoff book series. Unlike the previous spinoffs, this one is hosted by the ventriloquist dummy named Slappy, who's the most popular antagonist of the Goosebumps franchise.

"Please Don't Feed The Weirdo" centers on a Jordan Keppler, a twelve-year-old who finds himself visiting Carnival World along with his young sister, Karla, and their parents. Most kids would be excited to visit a carnival, but not Jordan, as he has a fear of scary rides. Nevertheless, Jordan accompanies his sister on the Tunnel of Fear ride, which will change their lives forever.

How exactly do their lives change?

Well, while getting stuck inside the Tunnel of Fear ride, they come across a boy named Robby, who was locked inside a cage. Ignoring the warning sign "Please Do Not Feed The Weirdo," Jordan and Karla feed the boy, which turns him into a monster, who just won't go away.

Why You Should Wait to Get Married Until After Your Mid 20s

Nowadays, you hear of teens rushing to the altar right after High School graduation, with their High School sweetheart in tow. However, over half of these young marriages will end in divorce—most of them never making it past the one-year mark. Recent studies suggest that the best times to get hitched are in your mid to late 20s, or even later in your early to mid-30s—but why? Read on for a few reasons to wait for marriage, even when you feel hopelessly, madly in love at 18.


Establish a Long-Lasting Commitment Beforehand to Ensure a Long-Lasting Commitment Afterwards

If you don’t have a long-term commitment before marriage, there’s a big chance you won’t have a long-term commitment after marriage. And those four years of High School DO NOT count. Neither does that psychic love reading you had when you were in middle school. Why? Because that’s not the real world. You have to live with someone, get to know their quirks and differences, reconcile with their habits, and then decide if those things are what you want to spend the rest of your life dealing with. No piece of court-ordered paper is going to solidify a commitment that was never there to begin with.

Experience Your Teens and 20s Completely, with Fun, Exploration, and Excitement 

Your teens and 20s are meant to be experienced with fun and exploration. You are meant to travel, fulfill some bucket list dreams, and have exciting experiences that you can talk about in your old age. These years aren’t meant for marriage, because a serious, long-term marriage rarely has room for the fun and carefree exploration that could have been in your late teens and early 20s.

Reasons Why I Prefer Free Dating Sites



Here I am early in the wee hours (though I'll mostly likely be posting this later in the morning) with nothing better to do than search the internet for dating websites. I don't know if it is my loneliness, lack of sleep, or just pure boredom, but I find myself one again in search for my soulmate, who probably doesn't even exist in this realm.

If you've been following my recent ramblings on this blog, then you would know about my desire to try out online dating. However, due to my procrastination issues, social anxiety, and a deep fear of rejection, I keep putting off creating an actual dating profile; though I do have a few dating sites that I would like to join. While I'm not actually going to mention any specific websites, I will say that the ones that intrigued me the most all have specific geeky niches, which fits more into my personality. And many of these websites are free!

Why would I prefer free dating websites to premium ones?

Well, my main reason is that financially my best option is joining a dating site. While I'm sure that premium dating sites are great, they can be a bit costly. What if I joined a premium dating site and I couldn't find a match! Then I would have wasted a lot money that I could have saved to pay for a real first date after I had found a match on a free dating site.

Another reason why I would prefer to join a free dating site is because there will probably be more dating matches in my area.

Now for online dating in general, my two biggest reasons for wanting to try it out are:

Saturday Morning Nostalgia: Sherlock Holmes In The 22nd Century: The Complete Series DVD Review


Mill Creek Ent.; TV-Y7; 9 hrs 17 mins

Yep! It's another Saturday morning, but there seems to be something missing on television. It's called cartoons!

I know there are still animated series on cable channels, but there not even close to being as good as the ones that aired during the 1980s. Though, from time to time, I have found myself liking a new cartoon (Well, its new me!) by either stumbling upon it while channel surfing or finding it on DVD.

Actually, that's exactly how I learned about Sherlock Holmes In The 22nd Century, a short-lived DCI Entertainment produced animated series that aired from 1999 to 2001. I had won a DVD giveaway for several cartoons on another blog a few years ago and one of the titles was Sherlock Holmes In The 22nd Century "best-of" collection, featuring 10 episodes from the series, and that was my introduction to the cartoon.

Mill Creek Entertainment released Sherlock Holmes In The 22nd Century: The Complete Series on DVD earlier this year. I'm not completely for sure, but I believe this might be a re-release. The DVD features all 26-episodes on a 2-disc set. There are no special features or extras. However, it does come with a digital code that can be redeemed at www.millcreekent.com/redeem.

Of course the series is based on the "Sherlock Holmes" stories which were written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but with a slight twist. After the real Sherlock Homes had died, his body was  preserved in a honey-filled coffin in the basement of New Scotland Yard. Fast forward to the 22nd Century when biologist Sir Evan Hargreaves resurrects the famous detective. It seems an evil geneticist, Martin Fenwick, has cloned Sherlock's old enemy Moriarty. Sherlock teams up with Inspector Beth Lestrade of New Scotland Yard and a compudroid, who looks and thinks like Dr. Watson, so they can capture the clone Moriarty.

The Return Of Swamp Thing Blu-ray Review

MVD; 88 minutes; Amazon

Before Hollywood overloaded the theaters with countless big-budget superhero flicks, comic book films weren't very popular until 1989's Batman. Released just barely a month prior toe the caped crusader was The Return Of Swamp Thing, a sequel to the 1982 cult classic Swamp Thing, which was directed by the late Wes Craven. Jim Wynorski (Chopping Mall) directed the sequel and he took a slightly different approach by adding in a bit of slapstick humor.

Upon its original theatrical release, the sequel received mostly negative review from mainstream critics and bombed at the box office, but just like the first film, the movie has developed a cult following.

The Return of Swamp Thing arrived on Blu-ray + DVD last month courtesy of MVD Entertainment Group, who released the film under their MVD Rewind Collection. The Blu-ray features a brand-new 2K High-Definition transfer (1080p) of the film and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and LPCM 2.0 mixes. The DVD disc features the film in Standard Definition (480p). As added bonus the release comes with a collectible mini-poster.

Special Features include:
  • NEW Audio Commentary from Director Jim Wynorski, Composer Chuck Cirino and Editor Leslie Rosenthal
  • Audio Commentary from Director Jim Wynorski (from 2003)
  • NEW Interview with Director Jim Wynorski (HD)
  • NEW Interview with Editor Leslie Rosenthal (HD)
  • NEW Interview with Composer Chuck Cirino (HD)
  • NEW Interview with Lightyear Entertainment Executive Arnie Holland (HD)
  • Original Theatrical Trailer (NEW HD Transfer from original 35mm materials)
  • 6 Promotional TV Clips (SD)
  • 2 TV Spots (SD)
  • 2 Greenpeace Public Service Announcements (SD)

Interview with Daphne Dubois, author of Only the Beginning



Buy Link: Amazon
After a heartbreaking betrayal, Melissa Legacy shuns romance. So when her best friend joins the Lovers Oasis website and fears her fiancé will find out, Melissa agrees to meet the anonymous Romeo, prepared to explain her friend’s change of heart—then she sees him.

Failing restaurant entrepreneur, Craig Wheaton hasn’t been home since his mother’s tragic death. Now he’s back to confront his demons and stand beside his brother as best man. Dreading the reunion, he agrees to meet his avatar lover, but at the last moment he reconsiders the arrangement—until he lays eyes on her.

When Craig assumes Melissa is his online consort, she impulsively plays along, resulting in an afternoon of unexpected intimacy. But with Melissa using her friend’s identity and Craig dealing with a family fallout, is a future together impossible, or will they discover that love at first sight is Only the Beginning?


When did you become interested in storytelling?

My sister and I are both nurses, and when nurses get together they talk about ways to earn money other than nursing. We were vacationing and the last book of the Twilight series was coming out. She said, “Wow, that Stephanie Meyer must be so rich, you should write a book.” I was like, “Yeah, I’ll get right on that.” But aloof as I was, she planted the seed and I started thinking about a story. It took another four years, but I finally had a book published, Butterflies Don’t Lie (it was the seventh full manuscript I’d written). Since then I’ve had seven other novels published. And while I’m not rich, and both my sister and I are still nursing, I credit her for getting me started.

What was your first book/story published?

Butterflies Don’t Lie, released September 2014 by Nimbus Publishing. YA contemporary coming of age.

What inspired you to write Only the Beginning?

It’s the classic mistaken identity troupe, which is so fun to write! I wrote this story as a love letter to my beautiful city, Halifax Nova Scotia, and I posted it on Wattpad as a thank you to all the readers who helped my other romance novel get published, The Right Fit.

What character in Only the Beginning is the most/least like you, and in what ways?

Wow! I have no idea. I’m really too boring to be in any book. I mostly steal traits from people I know and give them to characters in my stories.

What is your favorite part in Only the Beginning?

This is nearly impossible to answer, but I’ll go with the scene where Craig surprises Melissa at her apartment. 😏

What was the hardest part to write?
