It finally happened.

Scott M. Gimple killed Rick Grimes.

Not in the conventional sense, because dear ol’ Rick is going to survive his injuries, but he sure as hell killed my show and took Rick Grimes along with it.

In a continuation of my unintentional series of Things Nobody Asked For, it was announced that Disney had plans to reboot the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise from its shallow watery grave.

A Brawl is Surely Brewing: A Cuphead Update

It’s been about 4 months since I purchased Cuphead for my Xbox One; My boyfriend and I are only 60% of the way through.

The game is incredibly frustrating but has never ceased to be a source of entertainment. I very much attribute this to playing with a partner. I’ve replayed levels my own a few times and though my sense of achievement grew at defeating bosses on my own, nothing beats harmoniously shouting that the game can go fuck itself for the 2531st time.

Duplicating Disney – Are the Live Action Remakes Necessary?

aladdin

The teaser trailer for the live action remake of Aladdin was just  released  and a few days after that the rumour mill let slip that Disney is reportedly interested in Lady Gaga playing the role of Ursula in their remake of The Little Mermaid (more on that in a bit).

It’s been nearly 10 years of Disney recycling their top animated hits which began way back in 2010 with Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Since then we have seen two sequels to the Wonderland series, Maleficent (2014), Cinderella (2015), The Jungle Book (2016), Pete’s  Dragon (2016) and Beauty and the Beast (2017).

Already in the works are remakes of Dumbo, The Lion King, Aladdin, Lady and the Tramp, Mulan, The Little Mermaid Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Snow White The Sword in the Stone, and most recently announced Lilo and Stitch. We’re also expected to see a sequel to Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent, and in a similar vein, a Cruella movie starring Emma Stone.

Diamond in the Rough: First Look at Aladdin

Disney just released the teaser trailer for the live action remake of Aladdin. While it doesn’t show much, it does seem to indicate that it will be a shot for shot remake akin to  Beauty and the Beast (2017). I’ve never really understood the reasoning behind this, but hey Disney’s gotta make money somehow right? Like the ones that came before it, I probably will watch this someday on Netflix or on a plane.

A Father’s Day

It’s October, which means one thing and one thing only – it’s Halloween time.

Every year, I watch the same set of shows and movoes- Beetlejuice, Carrie, any of the old Treehouse of Horror episodes to name a few. However, I also try to add something new to my Halloween queue. Often (but not always), it’s a classic from the 80’s like Friday the 13th or Evil Dead because so many classic horror movies spawned in that decade… It might also be because I am a huge chicken and can only handle the really cheesy special effects.

While I haven’t picked my new horror movie for the month, I did stumble across this short film; “A Father’s Day” written and directed by Mat Johns.
