This November, Disney Wants Us at the Movies…’Frozen’ Too

For my ‘Frozen’-loving nieces:

Disney’s brilliant Animation Studio just let its first teaser trailer go for ‘Frozen II’ into the video sphere (ie-YouTube) so the public could get its first glimpse at the much-anticipated sequel to the 2013 smash hit ‘Frozen.’ Like the first film, it looks like lots of wonders for children to enjoy.

Perhaps the most obvious omission from the trailer above is the lack of a new song that will be played on repeat for all eternity–as in “Let It Go”–by Idina Menzel…yet.

We’ll surely hear something new for ‘Frozen II’ sometime between now and November 22, 2019, that will be stuck frozen in all of our heads for the foreseeable future. For now, however, we just get to chill.

It’s Not the Catalina Wine Mixer, But…

A sequel to ‘Step Brothers’ doesn’t appear to be happening anytime this century. The popular comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly appears to be a standalone favorite. Is that a good thing? A bad thing?

The debate rages on.

What is happening is a new film called ‘Holmes and Watson’ that stars Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, which happens to be a comedy.

Hmmm…

Is ‘Holmes and Watson’ a Step Brothers’ sequel in disguise? Wouldn’t that be exactly what Brennan and Dale would do? Weren’t Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson like brothers in a sense?

Well played, Dragon and Night Hawk, well played.

When Will Player 2 Be Ready?

‘Ready Player One’ was an awesome movie experience–in 2D and 3D–visualized for the silver screen by legendary director Steven Spielberg from the literary imagination of Spielbergian author Ernest Cline. And the critical success, as well as the box office success, naturally sparks the question:

Will there be a ‘Ready Player Two’ film?

The comprehensive success of the film supports the notion of a sequel. Yes. But it’s the Oasis and what this wildly imaginative virtual world has become since the events of the first film or book (insert your storytelling preference here) that really justifies the necessity for an IMAX-sized sequel.

‘Ready Player Two’ with a bonanza of nineties pop-culture references?

The virtual world needs theĀ Carlton dance and Kelly Kapowski.

Sharks, Dinosaurs & Merlin Walk Into a Time Traveling Bar…

There are no words.

‘Sharknado 6’ will be the final chapter in a movie franchise truly unlike any other we’ve seen. Qualifying as a movie series that’s so bad it’s good–this time combining sharks with dinosaurs with time travel with Merlin wizardry–and you’ve got a certified (SYFY) hit.

To watch all the crazy ridiculousness of ‘Sharknado 6,’ tune in this Sunday, August 19 at 8 p.m. on SYFY.
