A Muppet with Autism

We had the most incredible experience recently where we got to meet Alan Muraoka. If you and your kids recognize him, it's because one of the many creative things he's involved in is running Mr. Hooper's store on Sesame Street since 1998. Yes, Alex and I were geeking out over that! Alan was so sweet with Alex and they even talked about Julia, the muppet on Sesame Street who has autism.

Pocahontas - Disney Films Project

I know this film bothers a lot of people because of cultural and historical issues. I’m not going to tackle those here, but I can understand why they are problematic.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

We really enjoyed Rogue One when we saw it in the theater at release time. We recently enjoyed rewatching it at home with my daughter who had not ever seen it before. I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for Star Wars movies now that I have recently watched (and reviewed) all of them in numbered order.
