Review: Carosuel of Progress at the Magic Kingdom

We 53 years late getting around to this. Yes we know this ride was originally designed in 1964, then it went to Disneyland, before the carousel progress arrive at the Magic Kingdom in 1975. So why do we like this attraction so much? Well it’s a bit of a time capsule, yes the family at the end it seems a little dated now because we have all those technologies, but this is a throwback to the old style amusement and itself is a reason to see it. Plus it has air-conditioning in Florida and you sit down for 20 minutes.

Review: Super Mario Run

Hey wait you’re saying to yourself this isn’t a theme park, movie, TV series review what gives?  Well we’ll tell you, we have been playing Mario since the days of NES (by the way we still have ours that works perfectly how about you) so why not review Super Mario Run. Really there’s not a lot to review about the game, you run, you collect coins, you defeat enemies, you hit the flagpole. But what we did like in this game is the rally section where you can race against other players that have played the course before, this is where your talents as a gamer come in. As we beat the game in about one day, the rally levels we found challenging as we keep getting more and more toads, first to 9999, and now with the new update our quest to 99,999. Is it worth the download yes is it worth the 10 bucks yes.

Review: Jurrasic Park – Rifftrax (1993/2008)

Look Will admit we are in the minority when it comes to preferring the lost world over Jurassic Park. In fact even when we saw this film way back in theaters in 1993 we thought it was a little overrated. And just like anything that is overrated it sometimes need to have a little slap upside The head, with that said it’s time to rifftrax Jurrasic Park. Normally on a RiffTrax you have Mike, Kevin, and Bill as your three main riffers, this time however it’s Mike joined by weird Al Yankovic. And boy do they hit a homerun with Mike coming from mystery science theater 3000 and weird Al coming from the parity genre this was a match made in heaven. Yes the movie doesn’t change all that much but the riffing of the movie is what makes it a hilarious experience.

Review: Epcot Flower & Garden 2017

Once again spring is in the air. And that means it’s time to head to Epcot for yet another flower and Garden Festival. This year creativity seem to return to the park, as in past years it seemed like a rerun of the 2014 festival. Yes we know not everybody lives 30 minutes from the park but also it did seem as if they forgot to plan for the festivals the past two years. Could it be the expansion of Pandora, Star Wars land, toy story land made them relegate this to the back burner, we don’t know? Oh he will say is that this is one of the better festivals in a long time with the colorful colorful colorful topiaries and the outdoor kitchens featuring fantastic treats.

Batman vs Superman (2016/PG-13)

Yawn! That’s how we can summarize this movie in one word. Then again is that really a word to begin with? Hell our cats yawn, in fact let’s have them write part of this review. Here kitties! Who wants to write a review.

Yeah see that pile of mess, that’s basically what this film came out to be. Who is to blame for that train wreck, well that’s simple the director Zack Snyder. We still have no idea what the fuck Watchmen was really tryin to be about back in 2009, blue dick and all. See that’s this directors main problem, he suffers from the same thing that CSI suffered from when it was the new hot shit in Hollywood. All flash and no substance. The Dark Knight in 2008 was  perfect Batman movie because it has a good story under the hood. The more comic book stilzed Batman Forever in 1995 was able to be more style but still had bit of substance to its slightly campy story. Hell you want to talk about camp, let’s go back to 1978 and the Superman movie which is just a big real estate scam,  but still the top notch actors and director made it a story of substance. This movies problem is that it’s just trying to be dark and grity and boringly tell a story of two the Giants of the DC universe. Get a pillow and lay down as this film is your cure of insomnia.

Review: Jingle Cruise at the Magic Kingdom


Oh come on now your probably saying to yourself, how is this worthy  of a review, when Disneyland spends a whole month transforming the Haunted MAnsion out west. Your right on the surface this is a basi overlay and just a tweak of the script on the other hand it’s a breath of fresh or to what is sometimes a ride that is a little to much corn. Hop aboard as we go on the Jingle Cruise at the Magic Kingdom.


Ok so first off we said its a just a simple overlay so is it worth waiting in line 65 minuets without a fast pass?  Well we had a fast pass so we’re going to say no, however if your offered this attraction as one of your fast pass options as the E-ticket attractions at the park are ot available, then this is a welcome treat. We have in the past rode the regular Jungle Cruise at 1:15am on Feb 29th 2012 during the One More Disney Day event just to cross that off our list of unique attractions.


When it comes to the Jingle Cruise what can you expect? Short answer lots of Christmas jokes. Long answer however is a holiday treat filled with humorous corny Christmas puns peppered in with the Jungle cruise script. Once again like the regular ride the Skopper can make or break the ride. The day we rode our Skipper was funny, self deprecating, and totally into the role. Yes we know the job has to be repetitive with the same script over and over but breathing life into the hat script for a whole 8 hour shift is what can make this cheesy attraction a winner.

Review: Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam at MGM

Yes we know that progress must be made and that things come and go. What are we getting at you say? The answer is simple with the Streets of America closed down to become Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land means that the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights had to leave and what we now have is Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam.


If you’ve been to MGM in the past few months then you’ve seen the Star Wars show displayed on the Chinese Theater which is home to The Great Movie Ride. Basically that means it uses the same infrastructure as that show with large screen projections on the theater and lasers. While the overall concept is good, compared to the Osborne lights we’ve been so accustomed to , it does feel like a bit of a letdown.  The main issues we had was while this is a Christmas show, a lot of the clips used where not from Disney Christmas cartoons, that it self took away form the over all holiday feel of the show.


 Is this show a total bust?  Well no if you haven’t been to MGMin a few years or never saw the Osborne Lights. Honestly the fireworks of Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam remind us if the original  Sorcery in the Sky that we saw way back in 1990. But over all had this show been over the at the Magic Kingdom instead of MGM it would be a better fit. However it’s a catch 22 you don’t have 5 million lights and ha half the par under construction it was either Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam or nothing.
