However narratively clumsy, adaptations like Maleficent are inherently constructive. They teach us to humanize others in a society stalled not by men themselves, but by a patriarchal legacy that's dismissed qualities of the ancient goddess.
Watching fireworks is an exhilarating, can't-miss Fourth of July experience, but finding a spot to watch them is not. Avoid the lines and hassle this year by booking a room in one of these prime viewing spots, where the luxury of watching the show from the comfort of your room is included.
Louriza Tronco plays Yuki in the Disney Channel original movie Zapped which is based on the popular tween ...
Zendaya Coleman is talented and a hard worker - should she be denied what could very well be the role of a lifetime just because (though she is in fact Black) some view her as "not Black enough"?
My parents liked to think of our family as "bent," more "Fractured Fairy Tales" than Disney. We couldn't bear to do things the way normal people -- or at least people who seemed normal -- did.
With super-turbo speeds and insane upside-down loops, these roller coasters aren't for the kiddos.
You're confused. Enraged. Devastated. Angry. You set everyone on fire around you. You want to hide in an evil shell of darknesss where everything is black and no one can touch you. Or ever hurt you. Though it sounds like a rape victim's story -- it's not. It's the storyline of Maleficent.
The word "princess" has evolved in the past few years. Characters are now depicted as capable and kind. There is a relatable, qualitative substance. They are less ethereal and more capable. The princesses of today are depicted with a breath of vibrant life as well as a happy ending.
While watching The Lion King recently, I couldn't help but think of Simon Sinek's quote, "There are leaders and then there those who lead." It's like the old leadership proverb, "He who thinks he leads, but has no followers, is merely taking a walk."
It's no surprise that the film can only be so bold. Which makes it all the more notable that, in one scene, the film is shockingly bold, in a way no Disney film has ever dared to be.
There's always something new cooking at Disney World. From new attractions and parades to improved smartphone apps and massive park expansions (and, yes, price increases), here's what to expect at Walt Disney World in 2014.
Remember: Disney is a giant playground. You can either play well with others or go home crying. Your choice.
If nothing else, Maleficent serves as a perfect example of why Jolie is one of the most in-demand actors on the planet. Through the sheer power of her personality (with, of course, an able assist from Rick Baker's remarkable prosthetics), she's able to create a character who has equal parts bombast and fragility.
My fair readers -- it is a week before the Tony Awards. What does that mean? It's time for The Drama Desk Awards. There are a good amount of awards th...
I'm not going to apologize for laughing my ass off at Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West.
At the time of its release in 1940, one critic called Fantasia, the animated Disney film, "an ambitious orgy of color, sound, and imagination." More than just a motion picture masterpiece, it is a groundbreaking cinematic tone poem.
