Pixar Putt Pop-Up

A new destination attraction just opened in Battery Park in lower Manhattan. Pixar Putt is a Disney Pixar-inspired mini golf course located next to Pier A with views of the Statue of Liberty and The Freedom Tower on either side. The pop-up comes on the heels of Pixar’s latest film Luca, which premiered on Disney Plus earlier this Summer and was just released on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray. Celebrating the opening of Pixar Putt, Emma Berman, Giulia in Luca, was there to play a few holes and answer some of our questions.

Emma, who just turned 13, is making her big screen debut in Luca and instantly became a fan favorite, especially with my 10-year-old daughter. You can check out our full video interview below.

Heels Title Shot

In the small town of Duffy, Georgia, a small family-owned wrestling league struggles to stay afloat, with the fake tension the sales draw, while the real tension threatens to rip it apart. Jack Spade (Stephen Amell) plays the heel against his brother Ace Spade (Alexander Ludwig), the face aka the hero.

DrZaiusGod and I recently got a chance to see an advanced screening of the pilot episode of the new Starz series Heels at the Kauffman Theater in New York City, and were treated to a Q&A afterwards with some of the show’s stars, the showrunner/EP Mike O’Malley, and director Pete Segal.

The African Queen movie image

As long as I could remember, my mother would put on her hilarious mock-British accent and call everyone “Mr. Allnut” whenever she wanted us to do anything around the house. I got a chance to take my mom to see Mr. Allnut on the big screen for the first time, as The African Queen was in theaters this weekend for its 70th Anniversary as part of TCM’s Big Screen Classics series through Fathom Events.

The 1951 classic stars Humphrey Bogart in his lone Oscar-winning role as steamboat captain Charlie Allnut in German East Africa helping missionary Rose Sayer, the 12-time Oscar nominee/4-time winner Katharine Hepburn down the Ulanga River. Directed by the great John Huston, the film is a part of the National Film Registry.

Check out my video review of the film here below.
