goosebumps 2 trailer

The first Goosebumps movie was great. It was fun — and just spooky enough — with enough to keep both kids and adults entertained throughout. As R.L. Stine’s creations came to life to terrorize the town of Madison, Delaware, the film, directed by Rob Letterman, retained enough spark and originality (and nostalgia for Stine’s works) to make it a genuinely good time. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween comes across as an attempt to replicate the formula, and not necessarily in a good way.

Rookie of the Year Remake

Another day, another beloved childhood movie from over two decades ago is getting a remake.

Rookie of the Year is a childhood favorite of plenty of kids who grew up in the early ’90s. The film followed Thomas Ian Nicholas as a young kid who breaks his arm after slipping on a baseball, only to have it heal with his tendons much tighter than they were before, giving him an incredible pitching arm. When he throws a foul ball into home plate from the outfield, the Chicago Cubs recruit him to be their new pitcher. Now the movie is getting remade. Read More »

ralph breaks the internet princess scene

At least this one time, criticisms of whitewashing in a major Hollywood movie will have a happy ending.

When Ralph Breaks the Internet debuted its first footage to eager fans at last year’s D23 Expo, all the buzz surrounding the Wreck-It Ralph sequel was about the scene in which Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) stumbles upon the room housing all of the Disney princesses, voiced by most of the original voice actors. The rest of us finally got a peek at this scene in this year’s Wreck-It Ralph 2 trailers, but excitement over the cameos soon turned to anger when fans noticed that Disney’s only black princess, Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), was considerably lighter than when she had appeared in 2009’s The Princess and the Frog. But before that controversy could break the internet, Disney moved quickly to change the Ralph Breaks the Internet princess scene.
