Hollywood Stunt Training Down Under, Action on Australia’s Gold Coast

Posted March 30, 2014 by Anonymous

Years ago, when Dave and I were trying to figure out our lives after college, we considered being stunt men. Seriously. We were living in Vancouver, working as waiters at Earls and The Cactus Club, and we were failing miserably at being famous musicians. That was the first time in our lives we started brainstorming about our future. We were both huge fans of the series The Fall Guy with Lee Majors as kids, and the Vancouver film business was booming.

The Muppets Most Wanted: Giveaway!

Posted March 12, 2014 by Loukia

Going to the movies is one of my favourite activities to do with the family, especially now that my children are older—six and eight years old—and are able to sit through an entire movie without so much as a complaint. We loved Frozen and The Lego Movie, and now we are pumped to see Muppets Most Wanted.

Muppets Most Wanted is going to be two hours of non-stop laughter, I’m sure. Tina Fey, Christoph Waltz, Salma Hayek, Lady Gaga, Stanley Tucci, Zack Galifianakis and Ricky Gervais all in one movie, along with Kermit and Miss Piggy? I’m loving it already!

Muppets Most Wanted hits theatres on March 21st, and I’ll be attending the advanced screening   next week, on March 19th. I’m also giving away THREE family four passes so you can come see the movie before everyone else, too! 

To enter, just leave me a comment below telling me who your favourite Muppets character is and you’ll be entered to win.

This giveaway is for Ottawa (and area) residents, and I’ll randomly selected winners on March 16th.

Good Luck!
