Ratchet And Clank Movie Review

ratchet and clank movie banner


  Cast: James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye, Jim Ward, Rosario Dawson, Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Marc Graue, Alessandro Juliani, Dean Redman, Armin Shimerman, Sylvester Stallone, Bella Thorne, & Lee Tockar Director: Kevin Munroe Co-Director: Jerrica Cleland My Favorite crush in the movie: Clank of course!  

Two very unlikely heroes struggle to stop a terrible alien, Chairman Drek (Paul Giamatti) from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet (James Arnold Taylor) is a sweet “Lombax” who is the last of his species on a backwater planet, Veldin.  He grew up on his own having no family at all, having crash landed on Veldin as an infant and taken in by Grimroth (John Goodman), a local ship mechanic, who is more like a dad than a boss.  Clank (David Kaye) is a pint-sized robot who is not very fierce at all.  Clank is a living computer who has access to tons of information but is more like a child than a super smart computer.  Ratchet had just failed at trying to become a Galactic Ranger and was laughed at.  He was so depressed that he sadly decided he should learn his lesson and dream smaller.  Clank was involved in a crash that landed him on Ratchet’s planet and was quickly rescued by Ratchet.  Just in time to help Ratchet save his planet.  They had stumbled upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets.  They joined forces with the same Galactic Rangers that Ratchet was made to feel he would never be good enough to be.  Along the way they discovered many things, like a true friendship, heroism, discovering their own self worth and most of all confidence.     ratchet clank clank Overall thoughts of the movie: I love family movies that are more than an adorable movie. I love family movies that teach valuable lessons when no one realizes they are being taught.  Ratchet & Clank does just that.  It teaches so many valuable lessons: self confidence; don’t give up; dream big or dream small; be a hero; be a friend; fight for what you believe in; fight for what is right. My favorite line in the movie was, “To be a hero you don’t have to do big things, you just need to do the right ones.” Well, that hit me like a ton of bricks; it was that impactful. The lessons taught are all lessons I aspire to teach my sons. These alone are enough good reason to make this a must see movie for your family.  Adding that the story line is as adorable, as its characters, and this movie is more than a must see.

The Best Anti-Aging Face Mask with Only 2 Ingredients

The Best Anti-Aging Face Mask with only 2 ingredients (that you probably already have in your kitchen or in your garbage) Also excellent facial and body scrub.

Most face masks with all natural ingredients are good for your skin. They tighten and firm the skin, brighten face too. There’s no need to buy those expensive beauty treatment at the drugstore when in just a few minutes you can whip up your own all natural beauty mask that will give your skin a boost of moisture and help prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Plus all those creams and beauty treatments from drugstores are primarily loaded with chemicals and toxins that are not good for you and your skin and they simply don’t work.

  1. 3 Eggs
  2. 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheese
  3. 1 Tube Crescent Rolls
  4. Cut up Vegtables
  1. Scramble eggs to your liking. Can also be egg whites.
  2. Place 3 pieces or crescent roll on your warmed waffle maker. Having some space in between is fine since they are going to puff up a little. You will need to tear off some of each piece to make them fit well. Close lid for 15-30 seconds and just lightly start cooking the crescent rolls.
  3. Put shredded cheese on top.
  4. Spoon scrambled eggs on top.
  5. Put your vegetable on top.
  6. Close lid and cook for 1-2 minutes until cook all the way.

Save Money This Earth Day with LG Studio #bbyed

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free

best buy eart day 2


Did you know that Best Buy has the latest in energy and water efficient appliances from entry-level to premium to help you save time and money?  Earth day is on April 22nd and I am so excited by the Energy Star certified Washers and Dryers at Best Buy. Not to mention the amazing sale they are having right now in honor of Earth Day. Best Buy is doing their part and for that I am very grateful.  

Not familiar with Energy Star certified?  

ENERGY STAR certified Washers*:

•             Use less energy. On average, a new ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer uses 280 KWh of electricity and can save you $40 a year on your utility bills compared to a standard model.

•             Use less water. A full-sized ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer uses 13 gallons of water per load, compared to the 23 gallons used by a standard machine. That’s a savings of more than 3,000 gallons of water, per year!!

•             Is your washer over 10 years old? Washers built before 2003 are significantly less efficient than newer models. If you have a standard clothes washer that is over 10 years old, it’s costing you, on average $180 a year.

ENERGY STAR certified Dryers*

•             Use 20 percent less energy than conventional models without sacrificing features or performance

•             Sensor Drying. Use sensor drying, not timed drying. ENERGY STAR dryer models incorporate advanced moisture sensors to help you reduce your dryer’s energy use. This feature ensures that your dryer will automatically shut off when clothes are dry

•             Low heat setting. Longer drying cycles on a low heat setting use less energy. When you purchase an ENERGY STAR certified clothes dryer, look in the informational materials shipped with the product for which cycle was tested for certification and how the dryer’s other cycles or settings may use more or less energy.

•             Consider gas. Eighty percent of dryers in the US are electric. If you have the option, consider using a gas dryer to save money and reduce your environmental impact.

As much as we want to be informed and knowledgeable about everything, we just can not know everything.  Best Buy has done the leg work for us and when you see that Energy Star label you can have full confidence that it is meeting all of the above.  We all want to do our part to help protect the Earth.  Not only are we being good to the Earth we are also reducing our use of water and energy (which means less money spent).  Its a win win no matter how you look at  it.  

While shopping around the Earth Day Sale, I spotted the LG Twin Wash & Sidekick and I must say it was love at first site!  It lets you do two loads at once, so you have more time to do the things you’d rather be doing in life. It’s LG’s ingenious way of helping today’s consumer divide and conquer their daily workload. First helping them divide and conquer their laundry, then enabling them to divide and conquer every other part of their day.  I was pretty much sold right here and now because I do laundry for 6 people and I need help!   LG Twin Wash & Sidekick must have heard my cries.  

The product itself can amaze, but the innovation behind it is what inspire; as soon as you see it in action, you’ll understand. It’s completely in tune with what trendsetters need to tackle their daily grind – innovative solutions for their real (busy) life.

·         The innovative LG TWIN Wash is all about efficiency, helping you get more clothes cleaner in less time. With a combined capacity of up to 6.6 cu. ft., the TWIN Wash boasts an ergonomically elevated and angled door that makes loading and unloading easier. Plus, the LED control panel is located on the door, right at your fingertips.

  •  The Sidekick can pair with almost any LG front load unit. You can wash smaller loads without having to waste water by using the main unit.

·         Add the ingenious LG SideKick pedestal washer to almost any LG front load washer to tackle two loads of laundry — both large and small — at the same time.

·         Discretely styled with a concealed control panel, the LG SideKick not only functions as a secondary washer, but also raises your front-loading washer to a comfortable height and matches the pedestal beneath your LG dryer.

  • 18 months major appliance financing or 10% rewards (increased from 5 to 10% for April!) and 10% back in grocery purchases 
  • Free delivery on purchases $399+

The Best Low Carb Pizza Crust – No Cauliflower involved!

If you want a delicious low carb pizza crust recipe, try the “fat head pizza crust.” It’s very popular and has been a life saver for low carbers everywhere!

irina pizza


My great friend, The Big Apple Mama, who stirred up the internet with her Cloud Bread was looking for a pizza option to fit her healthy lifestyle.  She had made a cloud-bread base for pizza before, and while it’s delicious the “crust” doesn’t hold up much, and is very soft. Fat-head pizza crust holds up like a crispy regular thin pizza crust and definitely doesn’t taste low carb-y. 

This pizza looks absolutely delicious!! I can not wait to make this for myself.  Low card is the way to go and this pizza is giving me so much incentive!
