Alan Menken didn't compose the soundtrack of The Lion King. Hans Zimmer did. That was stated incorrectly in this video.

There are quite a few movies in which the heroes fail to accomplish anything. Check out this list of classics and non-classics with ineffective protagonists.

Sorry to ruin any childhoods, but it looks like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang has pretty much the same story as the MST3K favorite Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.
Christmas is coming early this year. I usually save my Christmas article for later in the month of December, but the good folks at Rifftrax preempted me by scheduling their riff of Santa Claus Conq...

James Bond is such an iconic character, I thought I'd have a little fun at his expense. :)

The tagline for Healthcare.gov should be: "The Future of Flawed Enforcement in Health Care."
At the start of the 1987 film RoboCop, a giant robot called ED-209 is introduced as "the future of law enforcement." Unfortunately, it turns out to be a huge disappointment.

I used to think Field of Dreams was a deep movie. Then I grew up and realized there’s more to life than baseball and the 1960s.

Die Hard, Shrek, Apollo 13, and many other films are based on obscure books you probably never even heard of.

Just a bit of fun to brighten your day :)
The title says it all, and so does this picture, courtesy of the classic comedy, Fletch. Enjoy! Welcome to Chevy Chase, MD.

I survived a harrowing experience last week, and it helped me put some things in my life into the right perspective.
I awoke on the morning of Thursday, November 21, 2013 at the usual time of 6 a.m., and I immediately felt something was wrong. I had had a hard time falling asleep the night before and had only got...

It's been a decade since Bryan Singer directed an X-Men movie. Can he bring his masterful touch back to the series he started?

Wreck-It Ralph came out 30 years after Tron, and it cemented Disney's place as the king of video-game movies.

The best and worst horror films are basically the same. How ironic.
Stanley Kubrick did something that no one else can boast of doing when he made The Shining in 1980. He took the worst horror film ever made, 1966’s Manos: The Hands of Fate, and turned it into the ...

The technician, Jim S., showed up a little early, which was fine by me, and he finished installing the furnace way ahead of schedule, which I absolutely loved. I was quite amazed at the speed and quietness of his work. It took less than four hours to complete the job. The furnace is working great, too. They offered to upgrade my furnace choice for a lower price than listed. I talked to several other heating and air conditioning companies in the Utah County area, and none of them were quite as good as Western Heating & Air Conditioning. They either didn't offer as generous financing terms or they charged higher prices for slightly less impressive equipment. I am very happy with their work.
