disney rides ranked

This is a banner week for the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. This Friday, Walt Disney Pictures releases the new entry in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, Dead Men Tell No Tales; it’s the fifth film based on the classic 1967 attraction. Also Friday, at the Disney California Adventure theme park in Anaheim’s Disneyland Resort, Marvel will make its presence known in the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission – Break Out! attraction, taking over from The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. But wait, as they say: there’s more. This weekend, Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World gets a whole new land, Pandora, themed to James Cameron’s Avatar. This combination of theme-park and movie-centric unveilings is the inspiration for the following, admittedly massive ranking of every single movie-inspired or movie-adjacent Disney attraction.

Get comfortable. We’re going to be here for a little while.

Cinelinx App

You might remember a few years ago we featured a Kickstarter for a card game made just for cinephiles. The game was called Cinelinx, and it had players match actors to the movies they’ve been in, other actors they’ve worked with, and directors of their movies. It was like a card game version of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon but with any actor, actress, movie or filmmaker.

If you never picked up the card game, there’s a much easier way to play, and you don’t even need your friends in the same room. Cinelinx is now available as a mobile app though the iTunes App Store and Google Play. Get details on the Cinelinx app below. Read More »
