Movie Trailer | The Boss Baby: Family Business

Recently I was sent the trailer for The Boss Baby: Family Business (Set to be released on March 26th, 2021) and because I love me some Alec Baldwin, I thought that I'd share it with all of you...

Official Website | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | TikTok | #BossBaby

In the sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s Oscar®-nominated blockbuster comedy, the Templeton brothers—Tim (James Marsden, X-Men franchise) and his Boss Baby little bro Ted (Alec Baldwin)—have become adults and drifted away from each other. Tim is now a married stay-at-home dad. Ted is a hedge fund CEO. But a new boss baby with a cutting-edge approach and a can-do attitude is about to bring them together again … and inspire a new family business. 

Tim and his wife, Carol (Eva Longoria), the breadwinner of the family, live in the suburbs with their super-smart 7-year-old daughter Tabitha (Ariana Greenblatt, Avengers: Infinity War), and adorable new infant Tina (Amy Sedaris, Netflix’s BoJack Horseman). Tabitha, who’s at the top her class at the prestigious Acorn Center for Advanced Childhood, idolizes her Uncle Ted and wants to become like him, but Tim, still in touch with his overactive youthful imagination, worries that she’s working too hard and is missing out on a normal childhood. 

When baby Tina reveals that she’s—ta-da!—a top secret agent for BabyCorp on a mission to uncover the dark secrets behind Tabitha’s school and its mysterious founder, Dr. Edwin Armstrong (Jeff Goldblum), it will reunite the Templeton brothers in unexpected ways, lead them to re-evaluate the meaning of family and discover what truly matters. Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel also reprise their roles as Ted and Tim’s parents.

Genre: Animated Comedy
Cast: Alec Baldwin, Jeff Goldblum, Ariana Greenblatt, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Eva Longoria, James Marsden and Amy Sedaris
Director: Tom McGrath
Producer: Jeff Hermann

Personally I have not seen the original but I do know Toni's children really enjoyed it. I actually remember going with Toni to pick up the girls from the theater after Bianca took Maddie on a sister date to go see it and they were both telling us how cute and funny it was on the drive home.

So what about you? Have you seen the original? Are you excited for the sequel? Lemme know!

Movie Teaser Trailer | Halloween Kills

As you may or may not know, I adore the Halloween (1978) franchise. So obviously I had to share the teaser trailer for Halloween Kills (2021)  that just dropped with all of you.


Genre: Horror, Thriller
Cast: Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna, Nicholas Galitzine, Michelle Monaghan and David Duchovny 
Director: David Gordon Green
Producers: Douglas Wick, Lucy Fisher and Jason Blum 
Executive Producers: Andrew Fleming, Lucas Wiesendanger, Daniel Bekerman, Beatriz Sequeira, Jeanette Volturno, Couper Samuelson, Zoe Lister-Jones and Natalia Anderson
Rated: R

I know it's just a teaser trailer, but what do you think? I honestly wasn't the biggest fan of Halloween (2018) but I'm still going to watch this either On Demand or in theaters if the world is back to normal by then. I'm just a sucker for Michael and Laurie.

Overdue Archives: Mini Vacation Upstate, NY

A couple of weeks back Justin and I took a little road trip in the Tesla* to a little Airbnb on Silverlake in Perry, New York for a few days to kind of make up for the fact that we didn't get to go to Central Europe for two and a half weeks like we had planned before COVID. Our trip didn't go as planned for reasons I can't mention just yet but Justin and I made the best of it.

Monday, September 14th 2020
We were originally supposed to leave Long Island at 7:00am but didn't end up hitting the road until almost 6:00pm because of various reason. So what was supposed to be a scenic daytime drive Upstate turned into a nighttime drive where I was constantly asking Justin how he was doing until we got to our Airbnb at 1:30am.

Tuesday, September 15th 2020
We woke up at a decent hour considering how late we got in then proceeded to shower and check out the property before we decided to drive to the Wegmans in Geneseo, NY to pick up some supplies for our stay.

On our way back to the Airbnb we stopped for lunch outside at Gatherings At The Depot and then did a little antiquing at 2nd Time Around Consignment

After picking up a few items we headed back to the property to enjoy some time by the lake. Unfortunately we both forgot it got cold Upstate earlier than it does on Long Island, so all of our kayaking and fishing dreams did not come true. Justin offered to take me antiquing and we drove to Mount Morris to visit the multiple shops on Main Street including; Allegiance AntiquesCarvings & MoreFinders Keepers, and another shop that I will not name because they treated Justin and I badly when we went to pay.

Eventually we headed back, stopping for fire wood on the way, set up the firepit for the evening and headed to Hole In The Wall for our first dinner inside of a restaurant since March.

When we got back Justin tried to get a fire going and for some reason the wood we bought would not catch despite all of his efforts (And he can build one hell of a fire normally). So we said screw it, went inside and watched Away (2020 - Present) on Netflix until we got tired.

Wednesday, September 16th 2020
Initially we were planning on visiting Letchworth State Park but unfortunately we were unable to go but we did decide to drive up about an hour to Buffalo.

While in Buffalo we stopped by Lloyd Taco Factory to grab lunch that we ate in the car. While we were eating we were discussing what we should do. We tossed around going to The Buffalo Zoo (Which is the third oldest zoo in the United States), eating buffalo wings at Anchor Bar, visiting Forest Lawn Cemetery where Rick James is buried, checking out the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens, etc. Eventually we just decided to drive another twenty or so minutes to visit Niagara Falls State Park.

While at the park we took a ride on the Maid of the Mist because why not? It was a nice, moist little boat trip and I'm happy we did it because I didn't get to see the falls from a boat when I went to Niagara Falls as a child.

After chilling at the park for a bit we decided to drive back. Once we were back we went to Silver Lake Brewing Project so Justin could have a flight and we could discuss what we were going to do for dinner. Eventually we picked a spot for dinner, ate and then unsuccessfully went in search of Duraflame logs to try and build a fire by the lake.

Since there was no fire to be had, we just decided to go to sleep.

Thursday, September 17th 2020
We got up relatively early to pack our things, do a light cleaning of the property and head back to Long Island. On the way back home we decided to stop by the Corning Museum of Glass, which was incredible and I highly recommend visiting if you're in the area.

Once we were done at the museum we drove the five or so hours back home.

Despite not being the trip that I planned, it was very enjoyable and I'm glad that we got to get away for a few days with everything that's been going on.
