The Toy Story franchise has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. The films have an enormous amount of meaning to me as a person who grew up watching them and as an adult who can fully appreciate the scope of the universe that Pixar created. Disney’s recent announcement that there will be a fourth installment to the series has stirred up a bit of controversy among fans. There are several reasons why some are excited and why some are feeling that this is just another cash grab on the part of Disney. Continue reading

In case you enjoy making advanced plans, here are five sequels you must see in 2015! Continue reading
It started with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Filmmakers decided that to do book adaptations justice, they needed to start splitting their movies into two parts. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I was hopeful about this change. Continue reading
Have mercy! Everywhere you look there are rumors about a Full House revival. Continue reading
Rumors spread at the beginning of July surrounding a Tina Fey-helmed Hocus Pocus sequel in the works at Disney, but unfortunately, you can’t believe everything you read on the Internet.
The next day, Deadline squashed the rumors by announcing the Tina Fey project, while witch-themed, was not Hocus Pocus 2, which apparently isn’t even being looked at by Disney as a possibility. Continue reading
Ladies of America…I think all us law breakers are ready to feast our eyes on the upcoming sequel to Magic Mike aptly entitled XXL. Yep, you read that right – Magic Mike: XXL has a green light and should be hitting theaters next year! The sequel (or possibly prequel) of the much loved male stripper film based on the real-life experiences of star Channing Tatum, is being written this time by both Reid Carolin (writer of the first film) and Tatum. According to various media outlets, the script has not been finalized but they have signed a director. Continue reading
Hey you guys!!! Guess what? Richard Donner has been making noise that a sequel to the ‘80s cult classic The Goonies is happening nearly 30 years after its release. He let it slip while signing autographs earlier this month that indeed the sequel is happening. However, this isn’t the first time the movie director has fanned the flames of such rumors to no avail. He went on to say he was aspiring to gather the entire original cast for the long awaited and often defunct follow-up. As an honorary member of the Goonies (any child born in the Pacific Northwest before the movie released in 1985 can claim this status), I must argue against the possibility of a Goonies sequel for three big reasons: Continue reading
We all know what it’s like to lose a beloved TV show. If you somehow don’t, you either don’t watch enough TV, or you should go out and purchase a lottery ticket because you are clearly very lucky.
For the rest of us, we know the pain of no longer seeing a show you once loved on your TV every week or of putting the series finale in the DVD player and knowing it’s the end. Continue reading
It’s official, folks! Insurgent, the second book in Veronica Roth’s bestselling Divergent series, will become a movie. The sequel has officially been given the green light, and both Shailene Woodley and Theo James are already on board.
While the entire movie is sure to be great, there are a handful of scenes I’m especially looking forward to. Read on for the list – but be careful! Spoilers are ahead for those who haven’t read Insurgent or Divergent. Continue reading
Everything is awesome—because production of The Lego Movie 2 is already under way. The release of The Lego Movie received such instant international acclaim that Warner Bros. has confirmed the date for release of a sequel for May 26, 2017.
My first impression of The Lego Movie was that of a fun, light-hearted kids film with a big G for general audience rating—while also doubling up as a marketing ploy, all rights reserved Lego®. But don’t be fooled by the movie ads featuring Lego Batman and Uni Kitty. The Lego Movie also targets older audiences, with blunt, wise-crack humor and a feeling of nostalgia while watching a classic childhood toy come to life on screen, with surprisingly impressive graphics and 3-D animation. The take-home message of that story? If you haven’t seen it yet then you should do so. Fast. Continue reading
