Are you you a fan of Doctor Who? Are you in or around Kansas City (or plan to be so next Monday night)? If the answer to both is yes then you have just qualified to win a pair of tickets to the Day of the Doctor 3D screening next Monday courtesy of Fathom Events, Regal 18 Cinemas, Allied Publishing, a deranged monkey, and a crazy cartoon rabbit.

To enter all you need to do is head over to our Facebook page, choose your favorite Doctor and tell us why! Tickets are very limited, so please don’t sign-up unless you are sure you can make it!

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of DOCTOR WHO, Fathom Event’s is bringing BBC’s Doctor Who: Day of the Doctor to the big screen for an exclusive Special Real D 3D One Night Event on Monday, November 25th.

The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this special episode. In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake at the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

With its star studded cast, the 11th incarnation of the Doctor (Matt Smith), faces his greatest ever adventure. Joined by John Hurt, Joanna Page and Jenna Redgrave, plus the much anticipated return of the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant and his companion Billie Piper, this Real D 3D extravaganza promises to be an event you won’t want to miss.

Enter to Win!

Sick Day

Sorry folks, but I’m fighting off a nasty cold that’s really knocked me out. It may take a couple of days, but there will be some new posts and reviews on the way after I get back on my feet.


We’re throwing some birthday love Shadowstalker’s way today as our old pal turns 65!* Knowing your wishes we’ve already ordered your Complete First Season of My Little Pony and Midgets Versus Mascots and our pal Bobby is working on a very special birthday cake (I believe it’s fried cinnamon streusel with mincemeat and bubblegum filling). I’m sure they will provide hours of fun and entertainment for your entire family!

*I might be off by a year or two, but it’s the thought that counts.

The Dad’s Big Plan offices have been crazy today as we set out to celebrate the birthdays of both alphamonkey and our (now 40 year-old) pal Eric. Fun times… except for the unfortunate incident that occurred in the inflatable Spider-Man bounce house which will never be spoken of again.


Today we’ll sprinkle in some extra Thunder God posts to go with our regular dose of awesome to help get you ready for the premiere of Thor on the big screen tomorrow. We’ll have multiple reviews for you, in a couple of different formats, so make sure you come back on Friday to see what we thought of the film, too. Enough with the prelude, enjoy Thor Thursday, or “Thorsday” if you prefer.


Any fans of Pixar Cars who happen to be around Kansas City should make their way down to Crown Center today when the “Agents on a Mission” tour sponsored by State Farm Insurance hits downtown KC – complete with life-size remote control models of Lightning McQueen, Mater and new character Finn McMissile. If you’re not in KC don’t worry, the tour will run through June, hitting cities throughout North America and racing through the red-carpet premiere in Los Angeles before wrapping up in San Francisco and Sonoma, CA. More pics and info after the jump.

William Shatner turns 80 today.


Just sayin’ there’s still time if you really care.


Okay, I’ve never been to California’s LEGOLAND, but the news of a permanent Star Wars Miniland area makes me want to make the trip. If this image of a freakin’ huge LEGO Millennium Falcon doesn’t make you want to go then I’m not sure I want to know you.
