Live Action “Lion King” Dream Cast

HI, FRIENDS! So, a live action Lion King movie has been announced! Now, the real question is: Who will be in the cast? So many great voice actors and regular actors in hollywood right now, so who to choose? Well, this is our dream cast of Jon Favreau’s The Lion King. Simba – Donald Glover Donald Glover is a youthful and amazing performer. He is a comedian, actor, and musician who would make the role entirely his own. His voice is beautiful as he’s shown in his songs and he has just the right acting style for this role. Young Simba – Caleb McLaughlin Caleb McLaughlin (most known as Lucas from “Stranger Things”) would be perfect for young Simba. He is an amazing singer and fantastic actor, especially in stressful or tense scenes. He has already played this role on Broadway and would undoubtedly ace it. Nala – Lupita Nyong’o…


Top 5 Most Unique Directors

What does it mean to be a unique director? Unique directors put their own personal stamp on any project they touch, and all unique directors have very distinct styles in every aspect of their films. These are my top 5 favorite unique and one of a kind directors. Yorgos Lanthimos — The Lobster, Dogtooth, Alps Yorgos Lanthimos is a Greek film writer/director who has made such films as “Dogtooth”, “Alps”, and most recently “The Lobster”. His films use strange plots and intriguing cinematography to draw audiences in and show them something that they’ve definitely never seen before. This man defies the notion that there are no original ideas anymore, thinking of movies like “The Lobster” which takes place in a world where people stay in a hotel and have 45 days to find love with someone else in the establishment. If they can not find a partner, they are turned…




Film Review: The Shining

Made in 1980 Directed by Stanley Kubrick Novel by Stephen King Jack Torrence  volunteers to be the caretaker to The Overlook hotel over the course of five months and makes a long vacation out of it, bringing his family. But the isolation of the hotel along with other things send him into a state of insanity. Movie Details The Overlook Hotel — Setting The hotel that the Torrence family was taking care of and staying at was extremely unsettling. The silence of the hotel made even small noises much more impactful and the echoing element of the sounds gave viewers an idea as to how vast the space is. Also, it really reflects the reputation that different characters set up throughout the film. Camerawork The continuous tracking shots build a lot of tension and makes the audience feel more grounded in the situation that the family is in. There are…


Five Actors who Could Replace Jared Leto as the Joker

Let’s be honest… Jared Leto wasn’t a great Joker in a mediocre movie. His Heath Ledger ripoff was underwhelming and very overhyped. We’d love a new actor in that iconic role, and here are five actors we think could pull it off. 5. Jake Gyllenhall Hear us out – Jake Gyllenhall was CRAZY in Nightcrawler! Probably the most haunting performance of 2014, this rising star played an insane reporter willing to do whatever he needs to do in order to get footage of crimes. Maybe not the most “Joker” role ever, but he had the same level of creepiness and insanity that people like Heath Ledger and Mark Hamill maintain throughout their performances. He could pull off a weird and eerie but still fun and enjoyable performance as the Clown Prince of Crime. 4. Daniel Day Lewis Daniel Day Lewis is an ACTOR. The man transforms into his roles completely and…


Film Review: Logan

Directed by: James Mangold Written by: Michael Green and David James Kelly Starring: Hugh Jackman, Dafne Keen, Patrick Stewart, Stephen Merchant, and Boyd Holbrook The Positives Logan Personal rating – 95% Woah! This movie completely broke the mold of usual quippy superhero movies that we know. While we may love these movies, sometimes we need an actually deep and emotional film, and this is that film. It is dark, it is brutal, it is touching, it is funny, it is everything! It perfects and legitimizes the superhero genre while also managing to do the one thing that it seems no superhero movies candy these days: be a standalone film! It doesn’t set up anything or hint at other movies throughout the narrative, it is a drama that stands alone as a beautiful film. It had very stern tones and very intriguing action along with deep and meaningful subject matter and…
