Will There Be A Cruella Sequel? Here's What We Know

In 2021, Emma Stone wowed Disney fans as she became "Cruella," the iconic "101 Dalmatians" villain who terrified generations of kids in her pursuit of the perfect coat. A style icon, even if she is a bit too fond of puppy genocide, Cruella de Vil is one mean fashion designer, in more ways than one. This campy, stylish origin story was a big hit among fans, with critics praising the edgy crime adventure and cool '70s setting.Although I originally thought "Cruella" was unnecessarily evil, I have t...

Without Scarlett Johansson, The Avengers' Plot Would Have Looked Very Different

Nobody needs to tell movie lovers that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become one of the most successful franchises in the history of film. While there have been bigger movies, in terms of raw box office dollars, 2012's assembly of "The Avengers" remains arguably the most important movie in the franchise, if not one of the most pivotal blockbusters of all time. That all may sound hyperbolic, but it's true. The idea of uniting several individual franchises in one, epic event had never been atte...

Warner Bros. Has No Plans To Move The Batman Just Yet

The pandemic rages on, and I'm very tempted to use a certain quote about getting out and being pulled back in. Every time we think things are getting better, we get a new variant (I blame Loki), people refuse to wear masks, or something else awful happens. I don't need to remind you, I'm sure. One thing the pandemic has done is goof up all the movie releases, and mess with the ones that are out there. For instance, it was recently announced that Pixar's "Turning Red" is going straight to Disney+...

The White Lotus Season 2 Displays Good Taste, Casts Aubrey Plaza

HBO, Mike White, and all of the rest involved with "The White Lotus" season 2 are clearly working overtime to ensure everyone comes back for more rich, entitled problems. After rumoring the return of icon Jennifer Coolidge for the second season, the show's creators announced the inspired casting of Michael Imperioli as one of the season's starring players. That was enough for plenty of fans to make their advanced reservations to revisit "The White Lotus," but if there's any second-guessers out t...

How Betty White's Run On The Mary Tyler Moore Show Cleverly Challenged Gender Roles

If America had a system of knighting, Betty White would surely be one of our greatest Dames. The beloved 99-year-old actress passed away on December 31, 2021, leaving behind a legacy of unparalleled brilliance and an immeasurable number of reasons for laughter. As a millennial, my first exposure to Betty White was through catching reruns of "The Golden Girls" while staying home sick from school, falling in love with Estelle Getty's Sophia, Bea Arthur's Dorothy, Rue McClanahan's Blanche, and Bett...

How Robin Williams Changed The Voice Acting Business As We Know It

If you have spent an unreasonable amount of time over the past two years stuck indoors with kids, you'll have no doubt watched a ridiculous amount of computer animated content on Netflix or other streaming services. There seems to be an unending supply of it, and even the most third-rate efforts have well-known names voicing characters (here's looking at you, Chevy Chase in "Doogal"). As a result, my wife and I spend much of the film's running time asking each other: "Who's doing the voice of th...

Every Michael Bay Movie, Ranked

Auteur theory is the idea that directors are the authors of their films, resulting in identifiable styles and themes from movie to movie. It was originally applied to filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock and Jerry Lewis -- don't laugh, it's true --  and is used today to describe the works of Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino. If we're being honest, though, it should just as frequently be applied to Michael Bay.Watch any single minute of a Bay movie and it's instantly recognizable as the work of a s...
