Theories provide a different prospective in which to look at art which we have already considered. The latest fan theory I have come across is about the Harry Potter series. The theory suggests that Professor Dumbledore represents Death.

When we heard an extended version The Hobbit trilogy would be coming to theaters in the fall with the unveiling of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies extended edition, it wasn’t all that exciting of news, if only because the new trilogy just isn’t as good as Lord of the Rings and the last thing anyone wanted was for those movies to be longer.
However, our interest in at least the third film in the longer version of the franchise might be piqued as The Battle of the Five Armies extended edition has reportedly been rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America. Find out more about The Hobbit rated R after the jump! Read More »
One of Tim Burton‘s best films is still Edward Scissorhands starring Johnny Depp. This year just happens to mark the 25th anniversary of the peculiar suburban fantasy about a misfit creation named Edward who has scissors for hands who ends up being taken in by family who in many ways is just as strange as the title character. So what better time to revisit the neighborhood where Burton’s story unfolds?
Just by looking at the suburban setting of Edward Scissorhands, you would think that the entire neighborhood was a film set. But it’s a real neighborhood, and it’s still around to this very day. But it looks remarkably different than it did in 1990 with one key difference that changes its entire appearance. See the Edward Scissorhands neighborhood 25 years later after the jump! Read More »
It’s been 20 years since Robin Williams starred in the blockbuster adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg‘s 1981 children’s book Jumanji. So that means it’s time for a reboot.
We first heard about a new adaptation of Jumanji in the summer of 2012, and then six months later, Zack Helm, the writer of Stranger than Fiction and writer/director of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, was brought on to write the script. But since then we haven’t any progress on the development front.
But it sounds like we might hear more about the project soon because Sony Pictures has just set a release date for the film on December 25th, 2016. Find out more about the Jumanji reboot after the jump! Read More »

The last time a Dungeons and Dragons movie hit the screen, in 2000, it was a fantasy disaster, like a D&D play session where every dice roll comes up totally wrong. But Warner Bros. started to develop a new D&D movie a couple years ago. While that effort was temporarily delayed by a lawsuit, now the new Dungeons and Dragons movie is back on.
There’s already a script in hand thanks to that pre-lawsuit development effort, from David Leslie Johnson (The Conjuring 2), and so the film could be able to move relatively quickly. We don’t know much about the story, but it is reportedly set in the Forgotten Realms section of the D&D universe. Read More »
