Review: Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon LIVE Spectacular

After much anticipation my family had the pleasure of attending Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon LIVE Spectacular at the Tacoma Dome last week! The first word that comes to my head when I think of this unique production is AMAZING! I had seen clips of the show on You Tube and television but the actual show was far more elaborate and surreal than I could have ever imagined. Dreamworks truly deserves kudos for this intricate combination of huge flying animatronic dragons, talented actors and interactive movie magic. The relationship between Hiccup and Toothless was so believable and touching that it actually brought tears to my eyes.

My family was truly in awe as we were transported to a fantasy world that was so grand and believable it is nearly impossible to describe in words. I have seen many live productions throughout the years, but none can compare with the experience I had at Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon LIVE Spectacular. My family agreed that none of us will ever forget it!

Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon LIVE Spectacular is currently touring and may be coming to a town near you (Click here for a tour schedule)! I highly recommend that you get tickets while you can... it is a must see!

Movie Review: Lincoln

In select theaters November 9, 2012 

Once in a while a truly great film comes along that makes a lasting impression on all who view it; the newly released Lincoln, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Daniel Day-Lewis is one such film. Since childhood I have admired Abraham Lincoln based on his tenacity and dedication to freedom, however I knew very little else about him. After seeing the film Lincoln I learned that Abraham Lincoln was not only admirable, he was a dedicated family man with a great sense of humor.

This film literally blew me away with it's amazing cast including not only Daniel Day-Lewis but also Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones and James Spader (to name a few). Lincoln is a must see that I believe is headed straight for multiple Academy Award nominations!


"Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.

During President Lincoln’s tumultuous final months in office, he pursues a course of action to end the Civil War, unite the country and abolish slavery."
