It's time to stop putting your foot in your own mouth, and time to start putting it into someone else's. The Evil Queen who torments the innocent Snow White seems like a good place to start.
Here's your golden opportunity (slash poisoned apple, take your pick): UK fashion designer Kobi Levi has unveiled her "Witch-Craft" line of shoes, celebrating fierce heels and fiercer Disney villains.
Three ladies of darkness are featured in Levi's collection of leather heels, which she calls "wearable sculpture": Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" and Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty." Get More »
Cats: They're such divas. Adorable, adorable little divas. They rule our world, so why not the cinematic one?
We obliged our feline friends by reimagining eight movies — with the aid and inspiration of our Twitter followers — starring cats instead of humans. Really, we can only dream of such cinematic purrfection.
The first one out the gate? Why, "The Great Catsby," of course. F. Scott Fitzgerald concluded that the pursuit of the American dream could only lead to a dirty litter box at best, after all.
Disney's princesses need to be taken down a peg or two once in a while for posterity's sake, and what better way than this sloth mash-up series which calls 'em out for being lazy little prisspants? Get More »
This Friday will kick off the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, and though our old Revolutionary War adversaries might be our allies now, that doesn't mean the U.S. of frickin' A. isn't ready to bring the thunder.
Using our powers of make-believe and fantasy, we've assembled athletic champions from the entirety of movie history to give us a clear advantage towards the race for Olympic glory in every sport of the XXX Olympiad. Get More »
In the UK, redheads or "gingers," once considered evil demonic spawn, are regularly insulted and abused. But we in America have a long-standing love affair with strawberry locks, so much so that many blondes and brunettes have dyed their hair to become famous fiery redheads, a la Lucille Ball, Nicole Kidman and Emma Stone.
In honor of Pixar's new "Brave" heroine Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald), we've assembled our list of favorite cinematic gingers -- and by that we mean the characters were redheads, not necessarily the actors. Yes, they're all ladies, but we'd love it if more actors like Damian Lewis, Michael Fassbender and Kevin McKidd let their ginger flags fly high. Rupert Grint can't be the only one to represent, guys.

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.
In anticipation of the upcoming 3-D release of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast," we've been reminiscing about this gorgeously crafted, beautifully scored work of art and have come to one conclusion: Belle's a hottie.
Don't judge us. Our earliest visions of female beauty are gleaned from the hand-painted pictures of large-eyed, impossibly proportioned princesses. They sing and dance and fall in love with ugly beasts, filling us with unrealistic dreams doomed to die slow deaths. That's the magic of Disney!
Is it healthy to lust after two-dimensional caricatures? Probably not. But are we actually objectifying women if they're not, actually, women? Definitely. So, with that healthy dose of self-awareness, it's time to rate which cartoon babes we'd most like to comic strip.
Here's a quick review for you: In preparation for the first Blu-ray release of "the Lion King," Disney decided to invest a few bucks in a 3-D conversion and send it back to theaters for a limited time to generate a little bit of buzz. That it did -- and three weeks later, it's also generated the studio about $80 million bucks.
Three guesses what they're going to do next.
Okay, so you probably only needed one to figure this out, but it's still pretty cool news for fans of animation: Disney has officially announced today that they will be re-releasing several of their most popular films for 3D theatrical runs, including "Beauty and the Beast," "Finding Nemo" and "The Little Mermaid."

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.
