    Beauty and the Beast IMAX (2017 Film) Review

    It’s a tale as old as time, but still so true to our hearts. Normally, I don’t write from a personal perspective, but I cannot resist with this film. Beauty and the Beast was MY movie growing up. In a family of five children, living just three and half hours away from Walt Disney World, […]

    More revivals, whether you want them or not! Next up is The Matrix, the movie that launched bullet time and trenchcoats back in 1999. The Hollywood Reporter has it on good authority that Warner Bros. is working on bringing back the franchise, although it’s unclear whether or not we’re looking at a continuation, a reboot, or side […]

    Thor is Single and Ready to Mingle in Thor: Ragnarok, Here’s Why

    When the first batch of set photos from the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok were released, one face we didn’t see was Natalie Portman’s.

    Young Sheldon is Getting His Own Big Bang Theory Spin-off Series

    A long-running gag on Big bang Theory is now going to be its own series. Sheldon’s now-legendary mother issues are going to be explained in what we expect to be laborious detail, and I mean that in more ways than one. Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly reported that CBS has ordered Young Sheldon, and the production team and cast is […]

    Wonder Woman is finally coming to theaters this June, which means we’ve got precious little time left for new trailers.

    20 Stunning Fan Tributes to Beauty and the Beast

    Disney’s new take on Beauty and the Beast is finally coming to theaters on March 17, so we figured it’d be a good time to take a look at how the internet has reinterpreted the Disney classic over the years.

    Disney Looking for Middle Eastern Leads for Their Live Action Aladdin Remake

    As we know well by now, Disney is doing a live action remake for just about all of their classics. The Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland (maybe not so much the sequel), and Cinderella were already a hit, Beauty and the Beast is coming out next week, and remakes for The Lion King (with Donald Glover and the return of James Earl Jones!), Mulan, Dumbo, The […]

    One of the Many Live Action Little Mermaids Got a Trailer

    So, the thing about The Little Mermaid is, as a classic fairy tale, pretty much anyone can make a movie based on it — Disney doesn’t own the Brothers Grimm like they do everything else (I’m sure they would if they could). That’s led to an increasingly odd situation, where by my count, we have four live […]

    One of your Disney-mandated three Marvel movies this year is Thor: Ragnarok, the third in the Thor series.

    The oft-delayed Star Trek: Discovery has done a remarkable job staying out of the news, except for when new members of the cast are revealed. The big one was when Sonequa Martin-Green was introduced as the main character, a lieutenant commander on the Discovery. While that broke with the tradition of having a captain as the […]

    Microsoft Gets Real With Young Girls to Get Them to Stay in STEM

    Kids dream. That’s what they do, until they start getting told not to dream anymore — I think that’s what’s called adulthood. But, nothing gets done without dreams, so us adults aren’t doing ourselves any favors by not encouraging kids to achieve. There’s no better example than girls and STEM. Microsoft, like a lot of us, […]
