From Ice in the Desert to Dr. Seuss, See My Latest Coachella Valley Adventures!

20 hours ago

I've been a busy bee all week! First, I went to the Desert Ice Castle in Cathedral City, CA to take a look at their fundraising effort called "Hot Summer Ice Show!" It's cool to cool off in the middle of the summer in the hot, hot desert!

And then, I cooled off my singing voice to take a look at "Seussical the Musical" playing at Palm Canyon Theatre in Palm Springs! I met Cat in the Hat and Horton! I love them both! This play is not only for the young, but for the young at heart as well!

Find out in my movie review of .Dawn of the Planet of the Apes..

Official Synopsis:

First Trailer for "Exodus: Gods and Kings!" See Christian Bale as Moses!

9 July 2014 9:58 AM, PDT

Finally, the first trailer for Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is here, and boy oh boy, it promises to be epic! Like Cecil B. DeMille epic! Like a gargantuan "Gladiator!"

Take a look at the Red Sea parting! Listen to the cover of Simple Minds' "Belfast Child!" It's all glorious!

The film brings back to mind Darren Aronofsky's "Noah," but then again, did anyone see the movie? Hopefully, "Exodus" will not suffer the same fate so have faith all ye heathen!

In this adaptation, Christian Bale stars as Moses who dukes it out with Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton barely recognizable) so he can free the slaves and escape Egypt's plagues. So "Ten Commandments" here we come! But, according to Bale, there will be shocking stuff so Scott and company may be a bit liberal in adding or subtracting passages from the bible. Yup, just like "Noah. »
