Disney CEO Bob Chapek needs to be replaced as CEO of The Walt Disney Company for not doing enough to fight hatred in Florida. I’m not just speaking out as a transgender American and film/TV critic but as a shareholder of The Walt Disney Company. If this risks getting myself blacklisted as a critic, so be it. I cannot stay silent in the face of hatred. In a perfect world, I would be visiting Walt…"Bob Chapek Needs To Be Replaced As Disney CEO"
Pixar continues to crush it with Turning Red but it’s a shame that Disney sent it straight to Disney+ rather than give theatrical a chance. Please make sure to watch until the end of the credits. It’s 2002 and Mei Lee (voice of Rosalie Chiang) is your average 13-year-old teenager. She hangs out with her friends and is a massive fan of 4*Town. However, she’s also at the age where her emotions turn into a…"Turning Red: Pixar Keeps Crushing It"

In response to the continuing invasion of Ukraine, Disney, Warner Bros., and Sony have put a stop on releasing films in Russia. While we’re just at three studios so far, I expect that Paramount and NBCUniversal will follow. It would make zero sense for them to not take action. I’m glad to see Hollywood responding this early. It’s a different situation than how slow the response was in the 1930s. Universal founder Carl Laemmle did…"Ukraine Invasion: Studios Stop Releasing in Russia"

It’s been sixteen years since the theatrical release in 2006 but Eight Below is a testament to the challenges of survival and friendship. After watching a number of disaster thrillers over MLK weekend in January, I was in the mood for a film about dogs.

Given the film’s themes of survival and friendship, I knew the adventure film…"Eight Below Is Still Heartwarming 16 Years Later"
In the newest installment of Marvel Studios Assembled for Eternals on Disney+, Kevin Feige referred to Avengers: Endgame as “the final Avengers movie.” This really should come as no surprise. I mean, where can you go from Endgame in terms of the brand itself? Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, and Natasha Romanoff are dead. It only leaves Bruce Banner, Thor, and Clint Barton in terms of the original six. While Black Widow is a Phase 4…"Avengers: Endgame Is “The Final Avengers Movie”"
