Puss in Boots Answers YOUR Questions

Posted by at 1:07 pm in SPONSORED, Your Questions Answered | Permalink

Pussinboots2 If you have seen the Puss in Boots movie (rated PG) then you know that Puss can be a bad kitty, but we forgive him because he visited the STACKS to answer YOUR questions. Read on to find out about his boots, his favorite dance move, and working with Shrek.

Do you know who your real parents are?
Puss: Sadly, we were separated shortly after my birth, but rumor has it that my father was a hurricane and my mother a volcano. . .it makes sense to me.

Would you rather be called “adorable” or “enormously fluffy?”
Puss: I would prefer a new term. . . “adora-normous-fluff-able!!!”

What is the worst thing someone called you?
Puss: Dog.

Who is your worst enemy?
Puss: Puss in Boots has no enemies! But I do not care much for bath tubs.

Since you’re a criminal, what is one place you’ve always wanted to rob?
Puss: First of all, I am no criminal. . . I just like to borrow things sometimes, and have a tendency to never give them back.

What is your favorite food/drink BESIDES warm milk?
Puss: There is nothing like a warm bowl of Friskies on a cold rainy day.

How much whole milk can you drink?
Puss: How many cows roam the earth?

Do you like ice cream?
Puss: I like the cream. . . ice, not so much.

Do you have a favorite dance move?
Puss: A little jig I like to call. . .”The Forbidden Gato!”

What size are your boots? And what’s your favorite type of boot? Cowboy boots? Rain boots?
Puss: My favorite type of boot is located on my little feets at all times. They are comfortable for any occasion. And the size is purrrrrfect.

Do like the song, “These Boots Are Made for Walking?”
Puss: Do I like it? I live it!!

How does it feel to star in a movie about you? Is it better than working with Shrek?
Puss: The green ogre will always be my great friend, but I must admit a close-up on me is much more flattering, baby.

What was your reaction when you heard you were starring in a movie about yourself?
Puss: Meow?

Who do you like better, Shrek or Donkey?
Puss: I know whose bread needs buttering. . . give me the ogre, baby!

How did Shrek and Donkey mess up during filming? Were there any funny bloopers?
Puss: The burro is constantly falling down and forgetting his lines, and the Shrek is always burping and farting. Both of them incredibly unprofessional, but quite funny.

Puss, you’re amazing! But why are you so epic? Is it genetic?
Puss: What can I say? It is a Puss thing. . .

SPONSORED POST: Arthur Christmas

Posted by at 2:25 pm in SPONSORED | Permalink

Axmas-blog-entry-130x130Merry (Arthur) Christmas! Did you ever wonder how Santa delivers all those presents in one night? Well, the new movie Arthur Christmas (rated PG) tackles the big question.

The answer: Santa has a sophisticated, high-tech computerized operation hidden beneath the North Pole! It is run by Santa’s oldest son, Steve, who is the heir to the Santa job one day. Santa’s younger son, Arthur, is sort of a misfit with a big heart. Then there’s a dedicated and loving Mrs. Claus, and Santa’s cranky 136-year-old father, Grand Santa, who hates the modern world and grumbles that Christmas was better “when I was Santa.”

One Christmas, when the high-tech Christmas present delivery goes wrong and one child is skipped, Arthur decides to take matters into his own hands. He goes on an unauthorized Christmas mission to get that child her present before Christmas morning. What could go wrong?

What do you guys think? Are you ready for the holidays? Will you be hitting the theaters for Arthur Christmas? Let us know in the Comments below!

Posted by at 9:22 am in Games, SPONSORED | Permalink

Kirby_Tout_130x130Remember Kirby™, the tough pink puff made popular by Nintendo? Well now he’s back in a new game for the Wii™ system! If you were a fan of old-school Kirby, there’s plenty of his cute butt-kicking charm in this latest game.

When a spaceship crashes into the otherwise peaceful planet of Popstar, its pieces are scattered. Players have to help Kirby retrieve the ship’s parts to help an alien return to his home planet.

Up to four people can play the game together as Kirby, Meta Knight, King Dedede or Waddle Dee. (Additional accessories required. Sold separately.) Kirby has his famous Copy Abilities and new Super Abilities. He basically inhales an enemy and gains their abilities. . . but amplified! He has Ultra Sword, Monster Flame, Flare Beam, Grand Hammer and Snow Bowl Super Abilities. They’re pretty cool and involve things like summoning giant fire monsters and collecting snow to turn into an oversized snowball and plow over enemies.

SPONSORED POST: Born to be Wild

Born to be WildThis blog post is sponsored byIMAX Born to be Wild 3D.

An amazing wildlife adventure is coming to IMAX theaters on April 8. Born to be Wild 3D tells the story of two women working in Africa and Asia to save orphaned animals. When the movie writer/producer Drew Fellman learned about Dr.Galdikas who was rescuing baby orangutans, and Dame Daphne who was rescuing baby elephants, he instantly knew that their remarkable stories would make an incredible film. “They are heroes of the earth in the truest sense,” he states.

Watch the movie trailer, and read on to learn more about these incredible Earth heroes!

Dr. Galdikas and Dame Daphne both stress that you cannot save the animals without saving their physical environment. “Orangutans are on the verge of extinction as their habitat is disrupted by poaching, illegal logging, and palm oil plantations whose by-product, vegetable oil, is sold in myriad products like junk food, soap, cosmetics and some bio-fuels around the world,” Dr. Galdikas points out.

Elephants have been equally targeted by ivory poachers. Dame Daphne emphasizes, “The pressure on the African wildlife population has been an ongoing situation for 100 years. Unfortunately the elephant, although highly intelligent, has been viewed merely as a resource to be mined. We’re consuming everything on the planet and if we’re not extremely careful, there will be no room for any other life forms here. And as soon as that happens, there will be no more us.”

Fellman concludes, “Both women have been huge inspirations to me personally. They are living proof that each one of us can make a difference. And I certainly hope people leave the theatre with the conclusion that they can do something, too.”
