Brush Up on Your Winter Sports Movies in Time for the Olympics!

The 2014 Winter Olympics from Sochi, Russia are just around the corner (seriously, they start tomorrow!) and with the sudden influx of snow in the city, if we aren’t in the park sledding and having snowball fights…we’re parked on the couch with hot chocolate (and tea) watching our favorite winter sports themed movies!

1. The Mighty Ducks Trilogy


This film franchise was the reason we dusted off our in-line skates in the summer, and made us want to join the hockey team in the winter. Starring Joshua Jackson as Charlie Conway and Emilio Estevez as Coach Gordon Bombay, and Kenan Thompson as Russ Tyler, The Mighty Ducks movies follow a rag-tag team of misfits navigating their way through peewee hockey, the Junior Goodwill Games, and eventually high school.  And let’s not forget the original Banksy aka Adam Banks, who reluctantly joined the team mid-season but eventually became a full-fledged Duck.  Quack Quack Quack!

2. Genius

Charlie Boyle is Chaz Anthony. Chaz Anthony is Charlie Boyle. They’re the same person. Except Charlie wears glasses and a lab coat while Chaz dons a leather jacket and spikey hair. Hannah Montana before there was Hannah Montana! Charlie is a science nerd trying to defy gravity (he’s in college and he isn’t even 14). When he starts to tutor a beautiful girl named Clair (played by Emmy Rossum) Charlie enrolls in the local high school, reinventing himself as a bad boy slacker – Chaz Anthony. The movie follows Charlie’s struggles of living a double life and how you can defy gravity while playing ice hockey!

3. Cool Runnings

“If enough people say they can believe, Jamaica, we got a bobsled team!” Cool Runnings is loosely based off the true story of the first Jamaican bobsled team made up of the fastest sprinters in Jamaica.  It’s also one of the most quotable movies of all time.  “Hey Sanka, what ya smoking?”  “I’m not smoking, I’m breathing!”   And it stars 90s icons such as Doug E. Doug and John Candy.

Carlos Pena Releases First Solo Single

Carlos released his first solo single…but sadly, it’s not “Carlos ALONE”.
The song is called “Electrico” and is already in the Top 10 on the iTunes Latin charts! Check out the single artwork above from Carlos’ Instagram.  We think it’s great that our little Carlitos is branching into the Latin charts!! He has such a knack for performing and hopefully this is a taste of the future ahead of him.

Get the song on iTunes and check out the lyric translation by @BTRTourUpdater  HERE!

We hope “Logalicious” is the next solo piece to come from Big Time Rush…but most of all we want a full album and a full tour of James’s “Break Out Dreams” project.
