QUESTION: Which Film Are You More Excited To See, ‘Toy Story 4’ Or ‘Pokémon: Detective Pikachu’?

Published

on

November 12th will go down in history as the date that sparked a brutal rivalry between two powerhouse franchises…

Or at least as the date that brought about this fun conversation starter!

On Monday, November 12th, trailers were released for both Toy Story 4 and Pokemon: Detective Pikachu. Both of these films come highly anticipated and are targeted at the same audience. The original Toy Story was released in 1995 and Pokémon hit television screens in 1997 so primary audiences will be derived from the same age demographic. With that in mind, which is the film to get more excited for?

Well according to YouTube, Pokémon: Detective Pikachu has the most buzz…ironic, isn’t it? The trailer for Toy Story 4 has garnered over 8.3 million views and is trending at #6. Pokémon: Detective Pikachu has over 26 million views and is trending at #3! 

Which am I excited for most?

Numbers don’t lie, I’m voting with the majority on this one! I have been a fan of the Pokémon franchise since I was 9 years old. Back then I had a big imagination and a bigger waistline, so needless to say I didn’t have a ton of friends.  I spent a lot of my childhood wishing Pokémon would become real. This film has been 20 years in the making! I already got my closure with the toys when Andy went to college. I will happily go see Toy Story 4 but I thought the third installment ended so perfectly. I am interested to see where the plot goes next so there is some excitement but nothing can compete with a talking Pikachu!

What do you think? Which film are you most excited to see?

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
