Will There Ever Be A Jack Frost 2? Here's What We Know

Six years after Michael Keaton stepped down as the caped crusader and transitioned into a successful career as a dramatic lead in films like "Much Ado About Nothing," "Multiplicity," and "Jackie Brown," Keaton also starred in the heartwarming Christmas film, "Jack Frost." In this wildly depressing family fantasy film, Keaton plays a would-be rockstar named, you guessed it, Jack Frost, who tragically dies in a car accident on the drive home to spend Christmas with his family. Luckily, he's also t...

Movies Like The Lord Of The Rings That Are Definitely Worth Watching

"The Lord of the Rings" trilogy is among the most perfect movie trilogies of all time. Against all odds, Peter Jackson's meticulous adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved trilogy of novels lived up to the significant hype, pleasing both fans of the books and complete newcomers. Tolkien spent years crafting the languages, characters, creatures, history, and mythology of Middle-earth, and Jackson showed a similar attention to detail when he brought the sprawling story to the big screen. The films ...

The 14 Best Sci-Fi Shows On Amazon Prime

Even before television had the technology to do justice to the ambitious, creative stories that would capture the imagination of audiences throughout the 20th century, science fiction had long been one of the most popular genres on the small screen. By taking a close look at a strange new world, we are often able to better understand our own. And in the case of early television, using science fiction was a way to address socio-political issues without running afoul of censorship efforts ("We're ...

The 14 Best Christmas Movies Ranked

Every viewer's definition of what makes a great "holiday classic" is different. Some film fans prefer their holiday fare to be earnest and heartfelt, while others enjoy seeing a darker take on the winter season expressed in thrillers, subversive comedies, and horror films. A great Christmas movie does more than just take place during the final days of December; it should comment on the holiday itself and tie the celebrations into the storyline. Some Christmas movies are worth revisiting througho...

Easter Eggs And References In Muppets Haunted Mansion You May Have Missed

Creepy and goofy are not mutually exclusive experiences. The mood of Disney's iconic Haunted Mansion ride is the result of a disagreement between two Imagineers, Marc Davis and Claude Coats, in the '60s. Coats wanted to make something genuinely scary. Davis wanted the attraction to be more fun. In the end, the Haunted Mansion is both; the mansion is brimming with silly gags, but still runs chills up guests' spines using a flurry of technological and illusory wonders.In 1969, three years after Wa...

10 Halloween Movies On Netflix Worth Streaming This October

Not everyone has the same approach when it comes to picking a Halloween movie. Some opt for classic horror movies. Some choose a killer franchise (and we mean "killer" in more ways than one). Others prefer PG-rated Halloween movies, the film equivalent of staying home and greeting cute trick-or-treaters instead of hitting up a costume party or a haunted house. But we can all agree that opening up a streaming service without knowing what to watch beforehand can be intimidating, even when you're t...

How The 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Created The Modern Superhero Comedy

In 1990, music video director Steve Barron cracked the code on combining superheroics and laughs with New Line Cinema's sleeper hit "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," which went on to become (and maintain as its status through the '90s) the highest-grossing independent film of all-time, taking in $200 million worldwide on a $13 million-dollar budget. Based on the comic book by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird (itself a parody of Frank Miller's "Daredevil" run), the IP had evolved into a popular cartoo...

Jim Henson’s Farewell: Revisit the “Nice, Friendly” Memorial Service at St. John the Divine (1990)

Please watch out for each other and love and forgive everybody. It’s a good life, enjoy it. — Jim Henson Born in Greenville, Mississippi, Jim Henson spent his youth practicing the tenets of Christian Science, a faith he would officially renounce in 1975. But the power of positive thinking his early religion years instilled would persist, romanticized by his alter-ego, Kermit the Frog, and tempered by foils like the earthy, irascible Ms. Piggy. For every foul-mouthed Oscar the Grouch, the...

Warm Bean Flavor!

You know, if there’s one thing people ask me more than anything else, it’s “Widge, where did you last see Judge Crater?” But if there’s a second thing people ask me more than anything else, it’s “Widge, why aren’t you excited by National Coffee Day?” This is a very reasonable query. After all, it seems like the sort of thing that, at least if the apocalypse wasn’t happening, we’d be hosting a parade for it or some such thing. Well, first of all, National Coffee Day feels to me a lot like Nati...

Muppets Haunted Mansion Trailer: Gonzo And Pepe Try To Survive The Night (And Ghost Puns)

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Halloween, that is. While the Muppets may be more commonly associated with Christmas Carols, the scare-filled festivities of Spooky Season mean that we can once again look forward to Jim Henson's puppet creations entertaining, enchanting, and distracting us from the ever-present worries of (gestures wildly) everything going on these days. Loaded with special guest stars, new original music, and -- of course -- all the Muppet characters we know and love, ...

Muppets Haunted Mansion Special Will Feature An Appearance By The Late Ed Asner

Celebrity deaths are one of those inevitable facts of life that I nonetheless take extremely personally, particularly whenever someone I have personal attachments to is involved. It's only natural! Even without the looming specter of delays caused by the pandemic, the nature of this business means that it's not unusual for an actor or entertainer's last work to release well after their actual deaths. This can be deeply bittersweet, reminding us of what we've lost while simultaneously giving us a...

Fantasy Box Office Bombs That Deserve A Second Chance

Fantasy films aren't released every day. The genre is not in as dire straits as, say, westerns or musicals, but fantasy is certainly a bit of an endangered species -- or, at the very least, a genre in decline.Fantasy relies on extensive world-building and frequently dabbles in magic, curses, and alternative histories. Dragons, fantastical creatures, and visual spectacle are mainstays of the genre; technology is usually set aside. Perhaps for these reasons, fantasy films tend either tend to be bl...
