The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen About Witches

(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. This week, we’re getting our witch on.) One of the many odd notes that will be attached to this period in American history is one concerning an unprecedented box-office streak. With traditional movie theaters closed for business and studios pushing back their summer releases, a small indie film managed to dominate the box office. The Wretched (...

‘Hamilton’ Documentary Coming to Disney+ Alongside the Musical

How the ‘Hamilton’ Movie Gives Disney+ Viewers a “Snapshot” of the Show at Its Height

The original cast of Hamilton remembers being very tired in June of 2016. They were a month away from taking their final bow after nearly a year of performing eight shows a week, to critical acclaim and astronomical popularity. Creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda was in the middle of writing the songs for Disney’s upcoming animated film Moana. And the cast and crew had taken on the seemingly impossible task of filming their show for a feature film that had no distributor and no studio over the ...

‘Hamilton’ is Rated PG-13 on Disney+, and Lin-Manuel Miranda Explains the F-Bomb Count

When Disney acquired the filmed version of the 11-time-Tony Award-, Grammy Award-, Olivier Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning stage musical Hamilton that was recorded with the original Broadway cast, we wondered whether the end result would be censored by the family-friendly studio.

‘We Are Freestyle Love Supreme’ Trailer: Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hip-Hop Improv Group Takes the Spotlight

If you remember watching the early days of the American version of Whose Line is it Anyway? in the late ’90s and early 2000s, you probably recall a game in which performer Wayne Brady would essentially freestyle his way through a song based on a suggestion from the audience. But he wasn’t the only one doing hip-hop improv around that time. There was also Freestyle Love Supreme, a small improv group comprised of future big names like Lin-Manuel Miranda. That group is the subject of a feature len...

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s ‘We Are Freestyle Love Supreme’ Documentary Heads to Hulu in June

Before Hamilton became a pop culture phenomenon and before In the Heights first catapulted Lin-Manuel Miranda to fame, there was Freestyle Love Supreme. A hip-hop improv group founded by Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Anthony Veneziale, the group included would-be Hamilton stars like Christopher Jackson and finally made its Broadway debut last year.

The ‘Species’ Sequels Bring DNA and T&A to DTV

(Welcome to DTV Descent, a series that explores the weird and wild world of direct-to-video sequels to theatrically released movies. This week, we go hunting for horny aliens.) Science fiction movies are commonplace, and they typically fall into one of two camps – small, smart, and geared towards adults, or big, bone-headed, and aimed at less discerning audiences. Back in 1995, though, a relative rarity appeared in the form of a summer release with a respectable budget, a recognizable cast incl...

Will Disney’s Theatrical Release of ‘Hamilton’ Be Censored?

Disney is not throwing away its shot to bring the Tony-winning pop culture phenomenon Hamilton to a wider audience. But that shot may not ring quite as clearly as fans remember. A new report suggests that when Disney releases its Hamilton “movie” theatrically in 2021, some of the production’s curse words may be censored due to the House of Mouse’s strict adherence to the PG-13 rating. When Hamilton burst on the scene in 2015, the hip-hop musical was lauded for its energized and modern depict...
