In the classic 1992 Disney film "Aladdin," the title character famously sang to his beloved Princess Jasmine, "I can show you the world. Shining, shimmering, splendid. Tell me, princess, now when did you last let your heart decide?"
Well, the answer to that question is actually somewhat disturbing, because according to Buzzfeed, the last time Jasmine let her heart decide she must have been like eight years old, and the decision was probably over which stuffed animal to have a tea party with.
Yeah, you're going to be kind of weirded out when you take a look at just how young the Disney princesses really are. Get More »
In "Beautiful Creatures," Lena Duchannes traipses into the damp, small town of Gatlin, South Carolina with the sole intention of remaining a good witch. There are those in her lineage who want nothing more than for her to join the dark side upon turning the dreaded age of 16, but the gal's got eyes for a little human boy named Ethan and just wants to play nice, for crying out loud.
Most of her predecessors in cinematic spell-casting, however, were not quite so noble. In fact, a lot of them would just do some downright effed up stuff. Let's review some of the worst. Get More »
The beautiful princess looking for love, the evil stepmother thwarting her every move, the handsome prince who comes to her rescue -- all are classic fairy tale characters that have come to life on the big screen, ever since the invention of movies.
"Snow White and the Huntsman" is just the latest cinematic re-telling of a classic fairy tale, following closely on the heels of the similarly Snow White-centric "Mirror Mirror." These types of films may be experiencing a renaissance, as there are many more movies based on fairy tales in the pipeline, with top talent attached. Here's a look at what's coming to a movie theater near you. Get More »
We know what you're thinking: Surely Disney has made more than 50 movies, right? And it's true, they have. But if there's one thing Disney knows even more than animation, it's how to protect their brand, which is why they've designated some of their features to be official classics and others -- like "The Jungle Book 2" or "Pete's Dragon" -- to be, you know, just something they do on the side for giggles and grins.
Take a closer look at the most diabolical villains ever captured on film and you may notice some fur poking out of the corner of the screen. Supervillains need love, too, and though they have little use for human beings -- aside from as expendable henchmen -- they save their cuddly, maternal side for their devoted pets. And through this special kind of unconditional love, the supervillains reveal their vulnerability and, ironically, their own humanity in the process.
Among these vile critters is Gargamel’s cat Azrael, who will soon get the CGI treatment in "The Smurfs" reboot, opening July 29. We present our list of Azrael and other beloved beasts, arranged from the most innocent companion to the most menacing accomplice.
For over a century, it has been one of the world's most burning questions: If Abraham Lincoln fought his own clone, who would win?
Okay, so maybe we're overstating the importance of the question, but that isn't going to stop Hollywood from answering it. And next year's showdown between "Lincoln" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is just one example of the many projects in the movie pipeline that are fighting with their own clones. Everyone from Snow White to Osama Bin Laden is racing to get to the theater before their evil twin gets there first.
So with that in mind, we thought we'd take a look at some of the films that may soon have you seeing double. Because in Hollywood, if an idea is good enough to film, it's good enough to copy. Get More »
