2015 Disney Movie Slate!!

WooHoo! I am happy to bring you the 2015 slate of Disney movies! This year looks as good as last year. Of course, I am so excited. I am over the moon that in May I finally can see the Avengers: Age of Ultron. OMG, I have been waiting for this movie since the first Avengers movie. I CANNOT wait. I keep watching the first Avengers over and over in anticipation. And also in May, Tomorrowland. This looks pretty good and how can you go wrong with George Clooney!!! 

I am also looking forward to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I am all about the Force! I cannot even believe there is another Star Wars movie and I am geeking out about it! I am also looking forward to Ant-Man because he is part of the Avengers and I am all over super hero movies! 

McFarland USA looks pretty good as well. I am a sucker for sports movies and Kevin Costner. And any movie directed by Steven Spielberg is always a must watch. He is one of my favorite directors and I love his work!!

And the rest of the movies look amazing as well. 2015 is going to be great!! Happy New Year!!

Coach White and the McFarland students have a lot to learn about each other but when White starts to realize the boys’ exceptional running ability, things begin to change. Soon something beyond their physical gifts becomes apparent—the power of family relationships, their unwavering commitment to one another and their incredible work ethic. With grit and determination, the unlikely band of runners eventually overcomes the odds to forge not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well. Along the way, Coach White realizes that his family finally found a place to call home and both he and his team achieve their own kind of American dream.
