Researchers have discovered a major problem with 'The Little Mermaid' and other Disney movies

To modern eyes, the classic trio of Disney princess films — released in 1937, 1950, and 1959 — can seem painfully retrograde. Why are characters so obsessed with Snow White's looks? Why doesn't Cinderella have any talents or hobbies? And why doesn't Sleeping Beauty do anything besides get drugged and await rescue?

When Stephen King helps adapt his work for the screen, it's usually a disaster; '11.22.63' is different

There have been plenty of beloved adaptations of Stephen King’s writing. “The Shining,” “Stand By Me,” “Shawshank Redemption,” “Misery” and “Carrie” are just a few of the acclaimed movies based on his books and stories.

'Ride Along 2' is a fun little journey

W atching the “Ride Along” films (this is the second installment in the buddy cop franchise) is an exercise in succumbing to Kevin Hart’s unique, manic charms. By the end, it’s most likely you’ll be laughing at the antics of the bite-sized comic — whose style is reminiscent of an over-enthusiastic puppy nipping at your ankles — even if you’re not sure why. This is why Ice Cube is the perfect audience proxy as Hart’s tough and taciturn counterpart; while he initially wants to bat the irritating pup away, Hart’s persistence and moxie are difficult to resist.
