The Lion King

When The Lion King came out in 1994 it quickly took the world by storm. It was just the heartwarming story that grabbed the attention of its viewers, but also the incredibly innovative animation for the time. It blended classic hand-drawn animation with 3D animation beautifully and for that reason and others, it was extremely successful in…

Mary Poppins Returns

I may be a little too young to be able to fully appreciate the greatness that is the original Mary Poppins from 1964. Though I have seen it, I admit it has been a long time and I probably should’ve refreshed my memory before watching Mary Poppins Returns. Regardless, when I heard Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda…

My Top 10 Movies of 2018 + Awards

This has been an interesting year in the movies and a very tough year to rank my top ten. It’s not because of a huge wealth of fantastic movies, but actually because of the opposite. My top few movies were head and shoulders above the rest, which made it very difficult to decide which movies…

Put together by Pepsi Productions and Temple Hill Entertainment, relatively unknown director Charles Stone III put Uncle Drew’s legendary…

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are back in action for Ant-Man and the Wasp. The movie takes place just after the events of Captain America: Civil War and the events of that movie have a lot to do with how this movie plays out. It is once again directed by Peyton Reed and it brings…

Pixar Rankings

21. Cars 2 (2011) This is the one movie that it seems like Pixar is trying to get people to forget. You rarely see merchandise that is uniquely from Cars 2, nor do you see themes in Disney Parks that are unique to Cars 2. That is because this movie was simply not good. I…
