    Baby Yoda ALL THE WAY. Pedro who???

    Poor Pedro, his talent and hotness has been eclipsed by the cutest puppet ever created. Even Herzog Werner was enamoured by the baby.

    • Mia4s says:

      Pedro seems like he’s in on it; his tweet response to that very question of being overshadowed by the Baby was basically “shrug, I’m cool with it”. 😏

      Smart guy. People are already falling all over the tough warrior who went soft for a little innocent bub, even though he hasn’t shown his face. Once the helmet comes off? (Which it will of course). Oh boy!! 😁

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        I know, the meme’s of him and the baby are going to be epic. I can’t get enough of the gif of him giving the baby that little silver knob that he tried to eat. The way he just subtly dropped into that cute little hand.

        The Mandalorian looks great and its not coming to the UK till March next year but I have family members who have turned to the dark side of the interwebz to watch it. They’ve said its great and is basically doing to the franchise that the new trilogy should have done. These guys should have replaced that hack Abrams – even George Lucas b!tched about how JJ rehashed the original plotline. I don’t think I can ever forgive Kennedy for giving SW over to that lazy hack.

        I can wait to see the episode directed by Taika Waititi.

      • Mia4s says:

        Oh you are in for a treat when you see it! I loved Rogue One (I’m thrilled there will be a prequel streaming series), but the new trilogy fell really flat for me. The Mandalorian has me fully back in the Star Wars fold. Legit bad guys, and a charming and fun throw back to the serials. Just delightful. To be honest I’m now far more interested in learning about Mandalorians than whatever they’re trying to do with Rey and the Jedi (Gee, one lone surviving Jedi up against a conflicted enemy and the real big bad Force guy. Where have I seen that before? 🙄)

      You mean Werner Herzog?

  2. Sierra says:

    Frozen 2 was a worthy sequel and I loved it.

    • Carmen says:

      My little grandniece will adore it. She had a “Frozen” cake at her third birthday party. Her name is Aurora, so she identifies.

    • GreenTurtle says:

      I loved it, too! I was thinking, “meh, the songs weren’t as good,” when I left, then I found myself humming Into The Unknown and Show Yourself the last couple days, lol.

  3. Veronica S. says:

    People who have seen it tell me it’s vastly superior to the first film (which is the definition of mediocre storytelling), so I’m excited to see it when my friends’ kids inevitably force me to put it on for them twenty times a day.

    • La says:

      Agree 100%. My husband goes on a rant every time he hears “Frozen” about how there is no plot in the first movie (he’s right). Took our daughter to see Frozen 2 this weekend and it told a much better story and it held her attention (she’s 2 1/2). The songs were okay but there was no Let It Go in there (thank God). They even poked a bit of fun briefly at “Let it Go” Elsa which I enjoyed.

      Thank goodness she’s more of a Moana girl so hopefully I won’t have to see it again for a long time.

      • Becks1 says:

        @La – a friend of mine just said this, that its a much better story than the first one, so I’m glad to hear that. We will probably see it this weekend.

  4. Snap Happy says:

    We saw F2 with my kids this weekend. The songs were def. not as memorable as the first. The plot delved into deeper topics but I felt it dragged toward the end.

    • Kristina says:

      +1 I thought it was pretty dark and dramatic for a kids movie. They liked Olaf and that was it (my 3). Songs- not so catchy.

      They tied the story in well to the first one, though!

    • Sierra says:

      I love Unknown…

    • Mia4s says:

      Yeah the songs didn’t land quite as well for me, although I liked them in context (especially “The Next Right Thing”). I loved Kristoff’s power ballad shot like 80s MTV though. Loved it!

      • La says:

        @Mia4s OMG yes! I was sitting there during that song thinking that it sounded like a long lost Chicago song and my mom would be so here for it.

      • Mia4s says:

        Chicago is a great comparison! In another life Peter Cetera totally would have done the closing credits version. 😂

        And that was totally for the grown ups. Not a single child sitting with or near me was laughing the way the adults were.

    • Veronica S says:

      In fairness, the music is pretty blah in the first one, too. It just has one really stand out song that keeps it afloat.

      • Rocket says:

        I thought there were at least three standout songs in F1: Let It Go, Love is an Open Door, and For the First Time in Forever. LOVED the music in the first one; it made the movie. Also Do you want to build a snowman and In Summer, so 5 catchy tunes actually.

        Whilst F2 has a more complex and “for-mature-audiences” story line, I thought the first one was way better because of the music and it was way more charming overall for whatever reason. Kristoff’s Alone in the Forest song in F2 made me crack up because it was so about sending up those ’90s boyband MVs.

        I was really looking forward to F2 but after seeing it, I won’t be in a hurry to see F3, if there is one. I would wait for streaming, but good luck waiting if you have kids.

    Ugh. T.I. is on Red Table Talk using the ItsAProtection1! card to excuse his treatment of Deyjah. Normalizing virginity testing- what great use of his platform! 😫😭😡

    • pottymouth pup says:

      I certainly hope the Smiths are taking him to task for that and pushing back hard

    • ME says:

      How can I watch Red Table Talk. Do I need to pay?

    • Erinn says:

      Oh great. Enough time has passed now for him to get his story together with his wife and work on that rebound from getting (rightfully) dragged.

      I just don’t think it’s possible for Jada to go hard enough on him for it to not be an obvious attempt at taking the heat off.

    Goo Hara, from K-Pop group Kara, died this weekend. There’s no word yet of exactly what happened- some people are thinking she ended her life but some are thinking her ex killed her. She had been through so much, between the abusive ex, the misogyny she was experiencing from strangers, the threat of revenge porn, the impact her boyfriend’s behavior had on her career, struggling with depression, cultural pressures, a suicide attempt earlier this year, and Sulli (who also experienced a lot of misogyny as a female public figure) killing herself just a little over a month ago. A friend of mine into K-pop said they were close. The whole situation is really sad, there was a lot of hope she would make it.

  7. Case says:

    Green Day has been my favorite band since I was young. Super proud of their performance last night.

  8. Bex says:

    Took a contingent of small children to Frozen II and now cannot get Into The Unknown out of my head, goddammit. Plus I got a kick out of Kristoff’s MTV moment.

    • Rocket says:

      Haha, see my comment above (if it gets approved). I mentioned how it was so sending up or giving a nod to those ’90s boyband MVs, with all those angles!

  9. JanetDR says:

    Doctored photos like the one of Adam Schiff make me so angry! Jerks! 😡

  10. Call_me_al says:

    Charlene is still so sad and so beautiful. And her twins are everything.

  11. Ramona Q. says:

    The internet says Kristen Bell is worth $20 million. That’s it? How is that possible after all the Frozen success and merchandising?

    • Originaltessa says:

      I’m posting this way late, no one will likely see it, but I would guess she’s worth at least twice that, if not more. Tv shows, movies, major endorsement deals… rental cars, whirlpool, now lazy boy… not to mention Frozen!! I’d guess closer to 40-50 million

    • Rocket says:

      She’s got a sweet voice but it’s not like the Disney machine can’t make Frozen films into a big hit without her voice.
