Go See The New ‘Pet Sematary’ – Its Maine Coon Cat Actors Were All Adopted From Shelters
  |  @   |  

So far, 2019 has already been a good year for cats in film. Last month’s Captain Marvel, the latest release for Marvel Studios, had an orange tabby named Goose play a major role in the superhero film, and in this weekend’s Pet Sematary, a Maine Coon cat named Church was front and center.

In the new Pet Sematary, a Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) moves his family, including their beloved cat, Winston “Church” Churchill, from Boston to a small town in Maine so they can live a quieter life. Unbeknownst to them, on their property is a pet cemetery, as well as a mysterious ancient burial ground. After the sweet and friendly Church is run over by a truck, Louis, under the guidance of his friendly elderly neighbor Jud (John Lithgow), buries the cat in the burial ground, a place where the dead rise. But when Church returns, he’s not the lovable lap cat he used to be, much to the family’s horror.

Valentine’s Day 2018: Last-Minute Charitable Gift Ideas
  |  @   |  

Valentine’s Day is here! Are you still searching for a last-minute gift? Or perhaps you already have all your gifts purchased and ready to go for the big day, but you’d like to add a little something extra? Well then here are some lovely stress-free last-minute charitable gifts you can give this Valentine’s Day.

See below for our list of Last-Minute Charitable Gift Ideas For Valentine’s Day.

Here’s what you do: Make a charitable donation online — in some instances you can do so in the recipient’s name — then print out an e-card or other message offered. You can add this to an existing gift or give it on its own. If you want, you can run to a Walgreens or CVS (some kind of pharmacy type place), grab a tiny box of chocolates and/or tiny teddy bear, put it together with the charitable gift message/print-out into a pretty gift bag (add tissue paper if possible to pretty it up), which will make the presentation lovely and not make it seem like you waited till the last minute.

Oh, and these are tax-deductible! And you’ll be helping others, while giving the gift. So, it’s a win all around.

‘Toy Story 4’ Pushed Back To 2019; ‘The Incredibles 2’ Bumped Up To 2018
  |  @   |  

A lot of effort is put into perfecting a Pixar project. From the search to the story to the animation, it takes approximately four years for the studio to complete work on one title. Perhaps that is why they are recognized for being one of the top animation studios in the world. But as much as they thrive on their original storytelling, they’ve done well for themselves making sequels. Finding Dory proved that a Pixar sequel is sometimes well worth the wait, and somehow, we keep getting sequels for Cars.

So when it was announced that there would be a Toy Story 4 and The Incredibles 2, Pixar fans got excited. Now comes word that they will be switching release dates. More on their switch and which films they will be competing against below.

Disney In Depth: 5 Disney Dog Movies For Summer Viewing
  |  @   |  

Summer is creeping around the corner. Now represents the perfect period to catch up on old movies or those you may have missed. Disney dog-themed movies exist in abundance. What better way to deal with those impending “dog days of summer” than to revisit some classic canine fare, or perhaps catch them for the very first time.

Here are five of my favorites that make me shout “bow wow,” organized according to theme. And no, none of the Air Buddies or Beverly Hills Chihuahua films reach even close to making the cut.
