Little Shop of Horrors: The Director’s Cut replaces the theatrical ending by restoring musical’s original ending to the film. Before The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin, both Howard Ashman and Alan Menken adapted a 1960 film, Little Shop of Horrors, as an off-Broadway musical. Roger Corman did the original film as a joke. It would go on to grow a cult following. The musical is proof that one can turn a bad…"Little Shop of Horrors: The Director’s Cut"

This isn’t to say anything bad about the writing or acting…"Only Murders in the Building – Season 3"

Because they are people of interest, it is in their best interests to not do a second season of their podcast but this…"Only Murders In The Building – Season 2"
The Prince of Egypt may have beautiful animation and music but in retelling the story of the Exodus, they get part of it wrong. While working as Chairman of Walt Disney Studios Jeffrey Katzenberg wanted to do an animated adaptation of the 1956 classic, The Ten Commandments. No matter how many times he mentioned this to then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner, the answer–like the many requests of Moses to Pharaoh–was always no. With a no-go at…"The Prince of Egypt Gets Part of The Exodus Wrong"
