Disney to Turn "Mulan" Into Live-Action Film

2 Minutes read

Sometimes, Disney underwhelms me, what with the lackluster Alice in Wonderland live-action Tim Burton movie (which gave us the eye-searing sequence of Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter break dancing for no DOGGONE reason). Then there are times when Disney will surprise me. First, it was with their announcement of animated film Moana. Now it’s with their announcement that…

Ain’t no way you can argue that Wiggins and Ratcliffe aren’t the poster children for queer-coding in Hollywood.

Disney is making historic ground once again with their Princess line of merchandise and programming. Ground that should have been covered eons ago. But in any event, let’s congratulate Disney on introducing the first Latina princess to its roster. Hooray!

The franchise’s new era, The High Republic, has now transitioned from book media to live-action and looks great. It’s cool to see the universe…

Alien: Romulus Official Trailer Reminds Audiences That In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream

Alien: Romulus is looking to be an Alien fan’s dream thanks to Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez. This movie will reboot the series with a midquel set between Ridley Scott’s 1979 original horror classic, Alien, and James Cameron’s 1986 action-thriller masterpiece, Aliens. It may accomplish what Prometheus and Alien: Covenant failed to do: be an…

X-Men 97 Series Review: An X-Ceptional Marvel Series

2 Minutes read

X-Men 97 was fantastic! Marvel brought back the merry band of mutants in a style that eclipsed the 20th Century Fox live-action X-Men movies by a mile. I enjoyed X2: X-Men United (2003), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), and Logan (2017). But this Disney+ show was a masterpiece of animation that did things no…
