Pixar Animation Tour

Back in the fall of 2015, one Disney fan was able to record a private tour of the Pixar Animation Studios campus. They weren’t granted access to some areas to avoid any possible spoilers for their upcoming projects at the time, but it was cool to see how welcoming and playful the environment for Pixar’s employees was all over campus.

Now we have an even more in-depth look at Pixar Animation Studios by way of a tour of campus that unfolded on Facebook Live just a few days ago. What’s cool about this one is at the time it was recorded, everyone who was tuning in was able to offer input as to what they wanted to see on campus. So check out the Pixar Animation tour after the jump. Read More »

2017 Oscars Honest Trailer

The Oscars will be handed out this coming Sunday to honor some of the best achievements in film from the year 2016. Of course, the Oscars aren’t necessarily always an indication of the absolute best movies from the preceding year, if only because there’s a lot of politics and money involved, making it impossible for some deserving films to get nominated. And to make sure we don’t forget that the crop of Best Picture nominees this year are not safe from criticism, Honest Trailers has decided to poke fun at every single one of them.

Watch the 2017 Oscars Honest Trailer after the jump. Read More »

obi-wan

Obi-Wan Kenobi might be one of the most prominent and most popular characters in the Star Wars original trilogy, but I’ve long harbored a grudge against him for lying to Luke about his parentage. No, that’s not entirely accurate — it’s not the lying I despise so much as his nonsense excuse when Luke calls him out on it, which is “What I told you was true… from a certain point of view.” I don’t know about you guys on Tatooine, Obi-Wan, but here on Earth that’s still called lying.

Such dishonesty hardly seems like appropriate behavior for a Jedi knight, and I’m not the only fan to have noticed. Fortunately for Obi-Wan, though, the Star Wars canon is huge and expanding every day, and that means there’s room to retcon his “certain point of view” bullcrap so it’s no longer “fake news” or an “alternative fact,” but actually a religious reference.

next x-men movie

Do you hear that? That’s the sound of the X-Men movie series getting its second wind. While X-Men: Apocalypse was a critical and financial disappointment, Deadpool proved that there was still plenty of life in the mutant superhero world. Logan looks like it will prove this further when it opens in a few weeks (the early reviews have been mostly raves). And that’s before we even talk about FX’s Legion series, which has been very intriguing so far. Audiences have made themselves clear: they love the X-Men, especially when they’re delivering something off the beaten path…which means it’s time for the core series to get with the program and try something different.

And is Simon Kinberg, a veteran writer and producer with a long history of working on the X-Men movies, the guy for the job? According to the latest rumors hitting the internet, he’s lining up to direct the next X-Men movie.
