The Joy of Silents: Méliès, Reininger, Gance and Murnau

None Silent film fans are largely an indiscriminate lot. I often hear Americans say "I love foreign movies," but of course, they never mean they love all of them. Lovers of animation or documentaries look for the cream, not every cut-rate cash-in. Even fans of certain genres, like horror or westerns or action films or musicals, rarely believe every last example is worth tracking down. Some they'll watch only to roll their eyes at what a waste of time it is as they waste their time. And yet, w...

Live Action Aladdin Movie Trailer Despised

The first trailer for another live-action Disney film has arrived and predictably generated scorn across the internet, with Aladdin being the next beloved movie to be bastardized by the evils of live action (the inclusion of Will Smith also drawing questionable reactions). The 1-minute trailer will no doubt instill hate in viewers: YouTube may no […]

‘Aladdin’s New Genie Really Blue Everyone’s Minds

And not in a good way Back in December we got a first look at Genie as played by Will Smith in the upcoming Aladdin remake directed by Guy Ritchie, and obviously people weren’t happy, because nobody’s ever happy. Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly The first round of criticism came as a result of Genie not being blue, which is fair, because that’s part of his iconic look, so I get that. HOWEVER. If you’ll all recall, Genie also did take human form in the original ...

‘Aladdin’ TV Spot Finally Reveals Will Smith as the Big Blue Genie

When the first teaser trailer for Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin first arrived, fans were fairly underwhelmed. Not only did the teaser offer very little footage of Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine, but it didn’t give us a look at Will Smith as the genie in the famous lamp at the center of the story. Even when the first images of Will Smith in the movie arrived, he wasn’t blue like the famed genie voiced by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated classic. But that changed t...

Disney Heroes and Villains Drawn Together As One Person

In her own words, Dada is “an artist who loves to draw all sorts of subjects using all kinds of different mediums.” Her most unique trait as an artist is her penchant for grafting the faces of two characters, often Disney characters, onto one head with two halves. In general, the renderings are extremely faithful to their source material, alternating between light and adorable, and vivid and surreal. Some of the combo choices include shared species like Simba and Scar, while others are more huma...

Disney Celebrates Lunar New Year With Chinese Posters For ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ ‘Toy Story 4,’ and More

Disney must count itself lucky that one of its characters from one of its most anticipated 2019 feature films is a pig. Because today is Lunar New Year and it rings in the Year of the Pig — which means that Hamm is front and center of the Chinese-inspired Toy Story 4 poster. The Toy Story sequel is one of the seven Disney Lunar New Year posters released by the House of Mouse to honor the holiday celebrated by China and many East and Southeast Asian countries. The seven posters for Disney’s u...

‘Kingdom Hearts’ Plot Explained: Everything You Need to Know About This Wild Disney/Anime RPG

It’s been 13 years since Kingdom Hearts 2 came out, which means you’re going to need to do more than blow on a dusty cartridge to revive those memories of the video game franchise. Kingdom Hearts 3 drops you right in the middle of 10 years worth of story which, somewhat counterintuitively, has been going strong in other spin-off games in that long absence. In-between Kingdom Hearts 2 and Kingdom Hearts 3, there were five (!) games that were released on the Playstation Portable, Nintendo 3DS, PC...

Why your favourite film baddies all have a truly evil laugh

Towards the end of the Disney film Aladdin (1992), our hero's love rival, the evil Jafar, discovers Aladdin's secret identity and steals his magic lamp. Jafar's wish to become the world's most powerful sorcerer is soon granted, and he then uses his powers to banish Aladdin to the ends of the Earth. What follows next is a lingering close-up of Jafar's body. He leans forward, fists clenched, with an almost constipated look on his face. He then explodes in uncontrollable cackles that echo across th...

Saudia Arabia bull run

Although Saudi Arabia inspires more fear than laughter these days, the kingdom is attempting to turn around its reputation of rigidity and become a world-class entertainment hub. And one of the ways Turki bin Abdulmohsen Al-Shaikh, the head of Saudi Arabia’s General Entertainment Authority, is trying to do so is by taking a page out of Spain’s playbook and hosting a Pamplona-style “running of the bulls.” In addition to the bull run, KSA also intends to host many other events, including e-gami...
