Imagine Dragons Delivers a Solid Second Album!!
By: Sarah Messer
Smoke and Mirrors, the highly anticipated second full release album from Imagine Dragons, is fueled with all the qualities fans love, along with some new melodies to which many music lovers from all genres will be able to relate. This album is full of hits, throw a dart and you have a new hit single, which is pretty impressive. It’s hard to review because you can’t single any one track to say these are the best, every song is a standout.
You have your slower songs like “It Comes Back To You,” “Smoke and Mirrors,” and “Dream.” Each of these tracks features their own individuality that creates stinging lyrics and moody tones, all with a slow catchy beat. To call these the “slower songs” still seem to leave the description wanting as the melodies will have you tapping your toe or nodding your head to a beat.
The more “upbeat” type songs are no surprise coming from Imagine Dragons, they are known for their catchy beats and tantalizing hooks. “Shots” and “Gold” really fit the style here. It would come as no surprise to be singing out loud alone or with friends to these.
If you were a fan of “I Bet My Life,” which was the first single off Smoke and Mirrors, then the songs “Polaroid,” “Trouble” and “Hopeless Opus” will be your “go to” tracks. They have more of a minimalist produced sound where you get more vocals and guitar as opposed to a synthesized sound.
Smoke and Mirrors is a creative beauty that everyone can enjoy. Imagine Dragons definitely delivered with this album.

Walt Disney Studios Gathers an All-Star Cast to Head “Into The Woods!” Own it Now on Blu-ray or DVD!
What happens when you take an award-winning play, grab an award-winning director named Rob Marshall and throw together a gaggle of “A” list stars to bring said musical to life on the big screen? You get a magical, dark adventure called “Into The Woods.” The story is now re-told over and over again via its home entertainment release on Blu-ray and DVD.
Characters from various fables, fairy tales and bedtime stories all come together to tell one story in this musical journey. The story begins when an ordinary baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) long to have a child to call their own. An evil witch (Meryl Streep) casts a spell on them and sends them on a seemingly impossible quest deep into the strange and scary forest. It is the only way the couple can reverse the curse.
In the forest, they cross paths with Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), her prince (Chris Pine), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), a big bad wolf (Johnny Depp), Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy), all of whom have their own story to tell (and their own musical number!). Though they seem to have nothing in common, there might be more to this story than first meets the eye.
Bonus material on the Blu-ray + DVD Combo pack includes Meryl Streep performing a never-before-seen, Stephen Sondheim original song called “She’ll Be Back.” There are also several behind-the-scenes looks at the making of the film that include talks with cast members and movie makers.

"Alexander and the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" Will Make Your Day A Little Better!
Alexander Cooper (Ed Oxenbould) is having a bad day. To make matters worse, it seems like no one in his family understands because their lives are just perfect. Well, that’s about to change.
His Dad (the very funny Steve Carell) has been unemployed for months and has been acting as a stay-at-home Dad. He finally lines up a job interview with a company that he would really like to work with, only there is no one to watch Baby Trevor. He ends up having to take the baby with him to the interview. And things just go downhill from there.
Mom, Kelly, (Jennifer Garner) has a job with a big time publishing company and this day is very important. Celebrity Dick Van Dyke of Mary Poppins’ fame is doing a reading of a new book that is about to hit stands. Only moments before his big reading, Kelly discovers a very big, embarrassing typo. It’s too late, America’s Sweetheart, Mr. Van Dyke, proceeds to read it out loud anyway. And so begins a very bad day for Kelly.
Alexander’s perfect older brother Anthony (played by Dylan Minnette) has the perfect girlfriend (Bella Thorne as Celia) and the perfect Prom planned. All that stands in the way of him and the perfect night is a little thing like taking the Driver’s test and getting his license. No problem right? Wrong! You know that saying, “Anything that can go wrong, will?” Maybe Dylan isn’t so perfect after all.
Emily is the only girl among the Cooper children (played by the always on point, Kerris Dorsey). She has been practicing very hard because she has the lead in the school’s production of “Peter Pan.” Today of all days, Emily has a cold. She takes a little cough syrup to get her through. And then a little more. Let’s just say that this Peter Pan is flying a little higher than she should be. Hilarious disaster ensues.
Anyone who has had a bad day knows that feeling alone in your misery makes everything worse. Somehow, having a family to understand and help get you through it makes everything better.
“Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day” is a treat that the whole family can enjoy together. Sure, a lot of the big laughs can be found in the movie’s trailer; however, there are enough surprises to keep you laughing when you watch it at home or on the go!. This film might just make your worst bad day look no so bad after all.
Bonus material on the Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack includes hilarious outtakes from the making of the movie, Walkabout: A Video Diary, a music video from The Vamps and more!
