Live-Action The Little Mermaid Will Star Chloë Grace Moretz

Brought to prominence by comicbook adaptation Kick-Ass (2010), Chloë Grace Moretz will star in Universal’s live-action adaption of Disney classic The Little Mermaid (1989). The Disney movie is an adaptation of the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen (1837) and, with all the live-action Disney re-imaginings, the pattern is well-known and one that will become increasingly familiar […]

Review: Suffragette

Until this year there have been no feature films to dramatize the suffrage movement. The fact that it has taken this long is conspicuous at best. Still, with the arrival of Suffragette one would be forgiven for thinking that the film industry were making up for lost time. The film boasts an impressive cast, including Carey Mulligan, […]

Forgotten Childhood: The Emperor’s New Groove

Let’s begin with a shocker. The Emperor’s New Groove was made in 2000. Before you continue reading, feel free to take a minute to get your head around that! The film marries fairy tale narrative with late ’90s humour; voice recordings would have started in 1998. This includes the frequent breaking of the fourth wall and […]

Bad Santa 2 Confirmed

Bad Santa (2003) might best be described as the antidote to Christmas movies. This is the season that officially centres around the idea of peace on earth and good will to all, but Bad Santa is a surly comedy that cuts against the grain with Billy Bob Thornton in the title role. Now there are reports of a sequel in the […]

For The Guardian, Shaun Walker writes, “The man inside the costume was fined 170 hryvnia (£5) for the “administrative offence” of not being […]

However, in the interest of balance I feel obliged to show you all the fun you […]
