Random Rambling: Beauty & The Beast, Tomorrowland, and The Muppets

Beauty & The Beast I have a problem, a very serious problem. It has come to my attention that Disney is currently in the process of translating a good portion of their beloved animated classics into live-action films. Jungle Book. Dumbo (Seriously?). Mulan. Pinocchio. Winnie the Pooh. Tinkerbell.  I may be a die-hard Disney nerd, but…

Obligated Viewing

It’s happened to all of us at one time or another.

You ignore that annoying voice in your head that commands you to stop and go pick…

Breaking Up Is Hard to Do

For Doctor Who fans, welcoming a new Doctor is like a rite of passage.

I Won’t Grow Up

“The second to the right and straight on till morning. That is the way to Neverland.” You’ve taken this journey before; a memory of childhood that has been held close, looked after and kept safe. You know the path by heart. For it is a tale of adventure ingrained into our spirits even still to…

Midnight In London?

I Wish I Were British On Sunday night, as I was watching the second season opener of Upstairs Downstairs, I began to have a miraculous moment of clarity. While I dissected the stylish dialogue, gazed upon the elegant satin gowns, and admired the outstanding archetypal set design, I realized I had a tenacious attachment to…
