Oh Bother! Winnie the Pooh Joins Kingdom Hearts III in New Trailer

  • Cinelinx
Kingdom Hearts III has just confirmed yet another classic Disney world, with a new trailer that features Winnie the Pooh. This won't be the first time we see the Winnie the Pooh world, as it has become something of a mainstay for Kingdom Hearts. More within...

One of the best parts of the Kingdom Hearts experience was always having the opportunity to experience new and different worlds. Hence, why we've been enamored with the trailers that revolve around Monsters Inc., Frozen, and Tangled. While it's always fun to play something new, it is equally exciting to return to the worlds we last experienced roughly 12 years ago. The latest trailer for Kingdom Hearts III shows that we'll be returning to a world that's become a mainstay in the Kingdom Hearts franchise, the Hundred Acre Wood.

  • Nerdly
With Sharknado 5 making a splash on TV screens across the globe these past few weeks, what better time to visit the world of The Asylum? With a myriad of films under their belt, from their beginnings as king of the mockbuster to their foray into original film making, it’s no secret we’re big fans of these bastions of the direct to DVD market and have reviewed a Lot of their output!

Stage Tube: On This Day for 4/30/16- Into The Woods

Natalie Frank’s Grim Fairy-Tale Art

Natalie Frank’s Grim Fairy-Tale Art
In 2011, the artist Natalie Frank was sitting with the painter Paula Rego in her London studio. Rego has worked with fairy tales a lot in her work, and she suggested Frank read some of the Grimm’s tales in their original, well, quite grim versions — before they got sanitized by Disney, in other words. Rego felt that the stories aligned strongly with Frank’s interests in women’s bodies, sexuality, violence, and everyday transformations. “I was so taken by the stories that I thought I knew,” Frank says of reading the tales. “I didn't know that Rapunzel actually gets her name because her mother is craving rapunzel lettuce, which is growing in the witch’s garden. So she trades her baby, who is Rapunzel, for magic lettuce.” Or, for example, that Cinderella’s wicked stepsisters try to fool the prince into thinking they are that girl from the ball by

Blu Review: Into the Woods

  • Cinelinx
Walt Disney Home Entertainment takes us on a dark and dazzling journey Into the Woods with this mashup of the many fairy tales they’ve so colorfully brought to the screen in animation form before. If you can imagine Once Upon a Time loaded with never-ending musical numbers you have a good idea what to expect from this impressive film. Besides a few spots where you know you’re on a movie set, audiences will no doubt get lost in the land of make-believe Director Rob Marshall transports you to.

In Into the Woods, a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) are childless as the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch (Meryl Streep). Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they venture into the forest to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch's beauty: a milk-white cow, hair as yellow as corn,

Sometimes you see a trailer for a movie and know it’s perfect for you… that was Avengers Grimm for me. So much so that I specifically hunted down a copy for review!

An off-the-wall mix of Grimm Fairy tale characters and superhero team-up movies which, frankly, should have been obvious given the title, Avengers Grimm is the latest film from the schlockmeisters The Asylum – you know, those folks behind such films as Transmorphers, Hercules Reborn, Sharknado and a myriad of other mockbusters, cash-ins and giant sea creature movies.

Like many and Asylum movie, the plot is relatively simple: when Rumpelstiltskin uses the Magic Mirror to escapes to the modern world taking Snow White with him and destroying the mirror in the process,

Journeying Into the Costumes of Into the Woods

Into the Woods opened on Broadway in 1987, with the music and lyrics written by Stephen Sondheim and the book by James Lapine. It is Sondheim’s most performed musical and one of his best known works. The story combines familiar characters from childhood fairy tales such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and the ubiquitous Witch, and explores their journeys to get their wish, as well as the negative consequences of the small dishonesties committed by each character to get what they want. As the witch sings, “Told a little lie/Stole a little gold/Broke a little vow/Did you?/Had to get your prince/Had to get your cow/Had to get your wish/Doesn’t matter how.” As the story unfolds, the traditional dichotomies of good and evil, and our expectations of each character, are shaken.

Oscar-nominated 'Into the Woods' costume designer says bondage was right for Rapunzel
Over the past two decades, and the last 15 years in particular, Colleen Atwood has cemented herself as one of Hollywood's leading costume designers. She's earned three Oscars and is continually sought after by many leading directors to design threads for a variety of time periods and genres. With "Into the Woods," she has once again reunited with Rob Marshall for an inimitable blend of period and fantasy. HitFix recently spoke the Atwood, who picked up her 11th Oscar nomination for the film earlier this month. Read through the back and forth below. "Into the Woods" is now playing in theaters. *** HitFix: You clearly had to create many iconic characters for this film. Is that intimidating at all? Colleen Atwood: It was totally intimidating and not only creating them but creating them together in the same movie! Like, everybody is iconic, but it sort of flowed once I started. I started with the witch.

‘Into the Woods’ Review

Rob Marshall has had plenty of success in the world of musical motion picture. His 2002 film adaptation of Chicago won Academy Awards and boosted Marshall’s name into the Hollywood “it crowd” in the process. Following up Chicago with a lovely adaptation of the Arthur Golden novel, Memoirs of a Geisha, showed Marshall was an accomplished director who was capable of more than musicals. Those two films showed style, heart and confidence. Since then, Marshall has directed Nine, a less well-received musical in 2009, On Stranger Tides, the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie, in 2011, a film that many thought was unnecessary and failed in comparison to its prior instalments,

Golden Globes 2015: Rate Amy Poehler and Tina Fey's Opening Monologue
The expectations were high, the hosts self-deprecating, the zingers at the ready as Tina Fey and Amy Poehler took the stage Sunday for their third stint hosting the Golden Globes.

After well-received outings in 2013 and 2014, the pressure for the comedic actresses to pull off a third successful evening was high. After all, their delivery of that George Clooney/Gravity joke from last year’s ceremony was near perfection; would they be able to top it?

From the raucous reaction inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel’s International Ballroom, that answer seems to be a resounding “hell yeah!” But we all know
