Movie Trailer: The Lion King (2019)

The continued effort to update and bring “live-action” realism to their classics (e.g., “Dumbo,” “The Jungle Book,” “Beauty and the Beast,”) continues for Disney with The Lion King. It follows the same premise as the 1994 animated feature (as well as “Kimba the White Lion” from which it was lifted) in which a young lion…

Movie Review: The Jungle Book (2016)

“Sometimes, rules are meant to be, well not necessarily broken, but certainly bent — and definitely reinterpreted; don’t you think?,” says Baloo to a bee-stung Mowgli as the man-cub angrily makes his way to the man-village where, as his sage mentor Bagheera has indicated, he must go back to if he wants to avoid a…

Movie Trailer: Cowboys & Aliens (2011)

The trailer for John Favreau’s highly anticipated adaptation of the graphic novel by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, Cowboys & Aliens, has arrived. While it is filled to the brim with alien crafts, abductions and gun fights (Colt 6-shooters versus lasers), it still keeps how the the aliens appear masked and leaves the mysterious backstories for the…

Movie Review: Iron Man 2 (2010)
