Fifth Harmony Recorded a Song For Selena’s New Movie



We were already really excited to see Selena Gomez’s new movie Hotel Transylvania 2 since we loved the first one so much, but now we have even more reason to think it’ll be our favorite summer flick! Fifth Harmony announced that they recorded a song called “I’m In Love With A Monster” which will be on the movie’s soundtrack! The brand new song scares up all kinds of fun in the recently premiered trailer and figures prominently in the movie. Check out the trailer below:

Why Must Every Day Be a Hallmark Holiday? - Disney & Hallmark en Familia




My clients want someone to share their moments with.

"I was alone on Valentine's day..."

"I am not a Mother/Father and I've lost mine, so Mother's/Father's Day is a reliable day of sadness, grief..."

I wonder, however, if some have fallen into the trap of trying to capture and script the moment and, in so doing, the moment has eluded them.

When will the day come when we stop ruining the moment because we are too busy trying to capture it?

I read a great piece recently about American Pharoah's Triple Crown triumph at Belmont. The author lamented that the Sports Illustrated cover commemorating the moment depicted spectators capturing the horse's triumph through the lenses in their phones instead of viewing the moment through the lenses in their eyes.

We're all guilty of this. The script has to be sent to the random guy you knew in high school. You haven't spoken to him since high school because he was the random guy. But somehow, you are compelled to let him know all about it.

These seminal moments have to be captured for the benefit of someone with whom we feel apathetic towards at best. Nonetheless, we still pause our lives for the benefit of an audience we do not know and who cares little for us.

Then there's where to find moments...

The best moments rarely happen on Hallmark holidays and cannot be scripted. The moments we remember most vividly are found on that random Wednesday when you catch him or her looking at you, when your eyes meet and there's no place you would rather be. You cannot script that or pause it, allowing you just enough time to launch it into cyberspace. What you perhaps should do is let that moment live in a world all your own that need not be shared by anybody else. That moment is a gift that is yours alone.

Perhaps we should stop sharing it.

As always, I would love to hear your thoughts. Please email me at brooke@wisematchmaking.com.

A modest rebuttal to Disneyland’s proposal to spend $1 billion on an expansion in Anaheim.



Back in the day, when the only theme park in Anaheim was Disneyland, the Walt Disney Company had a vision–a vision of a second Disney theme park in Southern California. They were going to build the biggest, most beautiful theme park ever and place it in Long Beach? Huh? Yeah. Port Disney, the original version of DisneySeas, was intended to be constructed in Long Beach. That was 1991.

Also in 1991, Disneyland introduced the idea of WestCOT as a potential second gate for the Disneyland Resort, a theme park that would go right in the parking lot for Disneyland.



In the end, Disney played off Long Beach and Anaheim to see who could come up with the better package of incentives (tax breaks, infrastructure improvements, etc). Eventually Anaheim won out, but the joke was on them. They didn’t get the amazingly conceived WestCOT $3 billion project, instead they got California Adventure, a theme park build on the cheap, with a lot of off-the-shelf attractions and more stores and restaurants than you could shake a stick at. Eventually Disneyland had to spend more than $1.2 billion to fix DCA bringing the park to the standards that it should have met in the beginning just to get guests through the gate.

The new management at Disneyland must be hoping they can pull the wool over the eyes of Anaheim once again. They’re promising to build a $1 billion-plus expansion of the Disneyland Resort (attractions, another parking garage, and street improvements) but they want more concessions from Anaheim. Essentially they want to cap Disneyland’s taxes at the same level (zero) for another 30 years. Here are the details according to a release from the Anaheim City Council.

It’s an interesting proposition. In theory, attracting more visitors to Anaheim will increase the tax revenue from said visitors, and yet, Disney wants to carve itself out from that.

Now, this expansion won’t include a new gate and only the new parking lot would be built outside the existing areas of the resort. A $1 billion investment would create jobs, and revenue for other businesses in the resort district. But does Disney really need the tax exemption to do it?

If I was on the Anaheim city council, I’d be very tempted to say no. Disney has legitimate needs to expand right now. They need to find ways to fit the Star Wars and Marvel franchises into the parks and need to increase capacity to meet increased demand for the parks. Plus Disney needs to keep up with the Joneses. Universal Studios Hollywood is in the middle of a huge expansion and threatens to soak up some of the tourist market in Los Angeles. Disney really needs to offer something new of their own to compete.

All that means, there’s a very good chance that Disney would build this expansion anyway, even if they don’t get the package of tax incentives they’re asking for. I’m not seriously suggesting that Anaheim not work something out with Disney. But they also need to remember that Disney already played them over WestCOT.

What I would push for is a committment for a third gate in the next 5 years. Heck, Anaheim could even promise land for the park a very reasonable price. $1 billion in development may be nice, but an attraction or two that Disneyland was going to build anyway, isn’t a prize. A theme park that brings an extra 30,000 guests a day, all the extra nights hotel stays, and all that tourism revenue into the city’s coffers, now that’s something a city could get behind.

Disney has the cash, they’re building a huge park in Shanghai, but China’s picking up the tab for that. So they can afford to drop $2 or $3 billion on Anaheim. After all, it’s the place where theme parks were invented. It deserves the best. Don’t you agree?

NBC's Heroes Reborn First Full Trailer Debuts - Watch Now!

The first full trailer for Heroes Reborn has just hit the web!

New faces Zach Levi, Kiki Sukezane and Ryan Guzman, along with returning stars Masi Oka and Jack Coleman can be seen in the trailer.

Horoes Reborn will premiere on NBC on Thursday, September 24 at 8pm. Be sure to check out NBC’s full list of premiere dates in case you missed it!

Watch the trailer below to get a sneak peek at the first season!




A year ago, a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, left the city decimated. Blamed for the tragic event, those with extraordinary abilities are in hiding or on the run from those with nefarious motives.

Two such vigilantes include Luke (Zachary Levi, “Chuck”) and Joanne (Judith Shekoni, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”), who are seeking to avenge a tragic loss.

Noah Bennet, aka H.R.G. (Jack Coleman, “Heroes”), has gone off the grid but conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski, “A to Z”) finds him and opens his eyes to the truth behind the Odessa tragedy.

While in hiding, some are discovering their newfound skills. Awkward teen Tommy (Robbie Kay, “Once Upon a Time”) just wants to be normal and win the girl of his dreams, Emily (Gatlin Green, “Criminal Minds”), but normalcy is virtually impossible after learning of a new ability that terrifies him. Coming from a very sheltered upbringing, a bold and ethereal teenager, Malina (Danika Yarosh, “Shameless”), has been told she is destined for greatness. In Tokyo, a quiet and unique young woman, Miko (Kiki Sukezane, “Death Yankee 3”), is trying to track down her missing father while hiding an extraordinary secret that will make her a force to be reckoned with. Elsewhere, a different type of hero is emerging through former soldier Carlos (Ryan Guzman, “The Boy Next Door”).

HBO News: ‘The Brink’: TV Review


In Stanley Kubrick’s seminal war comedy, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964), Sterling Hayden’s bonkers Gen. Jack D. Ripper lamented the poisoning of “our precious bodily fluids” by a communist insurgency. In HBO’s Strangelove-esque satire, The Brink (a 10-episode series airing in weekly half-hour installments), times have changed somewhat: The enemy, you could say now, is all of us, and our bodily fluids are reacting accordingly.

Indeed, there’s enough barfing, pants-soiling and, in the case of Tim Robbins’ horndog Secretary of State Walter Larson, kidney-stone passing to qualify as a harbinger of the end times. (Additionally, one of the supporting characters — a religious-nut embassy head played by John Larroquette — frequently delivers cheery-toned prophetic warnings of the apocalypse.) In truth, the world is only on the verge of annihilation, in large part due to the Keystone Cop-pery of Alex Talbot (Jack Black), a low-level bureaucrat working at the U.S. State Department office in Islamabad. After he is caught in a riot at the local bazaar while trying to score some primo weed, Talbot is forced to hide out at the home of his sarcastic driver, Rafiq (Aasif Mandvi). While there, he discovers some papers written by Rafiq’s psychiatrist uncle about Gen. Umair Zaman (Iqbal Theba), the leader of an in-progress coup that is threatening to topple the country. One half-assedly sent fax later, and Talbot finds himself at the center of a global crisis that also involves Larson, a warmongering secretary of defense (Geoff Pierson), a frazzled POTUS (Esai Morales) and a pair of hot-dogging aircraft-carrier pilots — Zeke (Pablo Schreiber) and Glenn (Eric Ladin) — who unwittingly dig the U.S. into a deeper hole after they shoot down one of India’s drone satellites while high on morphine.

A busy plot, this — courtesy of creators Roberto and Kim Benabib. And there’s plenty more where that came from: Also in the mix are, among others, Larson’s chilly, career-obsessed wife (Carla Gugino); an exploding cow; the Israeli and Indian prime ministers, both easily insulted; a very well-hung D.C. bartender (Christian Gehring), whose semierect junk gets several jaw-dropping close-ups; and (in one of the few truly gut-busting sequences) a pair of eccentric British expatriates (Michelle Gomez and Rob Brydon) who say bizarre things like, “Hands are nature’s forks!”

The situations are frenetic — though rarely funny. Comedy is, in large part, about good timing, and just about every joke in The Brink feels like it’s half a beat or more off. Worse, both of the show’s leads always seem like they’re trying to get a laugh instead of keying in to a natural comic rhythm. Black basically makes the same bug-eyed constipation face throughout the five episodes sent out for review. Robbins, meanwhile, arches his eyebrows, constantly drops F-bombs under his breath and, every so often, inelegantly attempts some lowbrow slapstick related to his character’s urinary-track blockage. Neither Schreiber nor Ladin fare much better. They trip out in a cockpit in the first episode—poorly helmed by Austin Powers and Meet the Parents/Fockers alum Jay Roach, who hands off the directorial reins subsequently—and it only goes downhill (i.e. projectile vomiting and other excrescences) from there.

The Brink aims to poke fun at world diplomacy by insisting that almost everyone at the highest levels of power is a fool focused on his or her basest desires. In the right hands, it could be as provocative as the Kubrick film it emulates. But as it stands, it barely would pass muster as a back-half sketch on SNL.
