    I love "Part of Your World" and in addition to the lyrics and music, so much of its power comes from Jodi Benson's voice. However, it's also very heavily cribbed from their own "Somewhere That's Green" from Little Shop of Horrors, and that's musically as well as thematically. Which is also a song that draws a lot from the performance; Kerry Butler played Audrey in a Broadway revival about fifteen years ago, and there are clips on YouTube of her tearing up while singing it.
  2. I'm not surprised. They seem to be consolidating under Disney+.

    I liked Aladdin and the King of Thieves. It actually has a good story, and Robin Williams' return after he and Disney made up helped immeasurably. Everything else is a trash-fire.
  4. Didn't Wesley have to do something similar when he applied to Starfleet Academy?
  5. I mean, we've seen that with the Kobayashi Maru. Clearly, they were acting, but they also blew stuff up.

    Happy Life Day Eve! Maclunkey, everyone!
  7. Delgo had a wide opening and barely cracked $500K, so I don't know how granular they're getting here.
  8. Alan Rickman deserved an Oscar nomination for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Judi Dench deserved one for Skyfall.
  9. I did too. I think that's why I don't have a problem giving it the Blumhouse treatment. Malcolm McDowell's Mr. Roark had a creepy edge to him. Michael Peña was an...interesting choice.
  10. It is. They're just going at it from a horror perspective.
  11. I'm not sure how I feel about this, but it is a property that lends itself to being reimagined as horror.
  12. While I wasn't surprised that Mrs. Coulter had the largest presence (aside from Lyra, of course), I was REALLY surprised that Ma Costa left so much more of an impression of me than a lot of the men, including Farder Coram and John Faa. The last shot of her sitting atop the boat as they were leaving the Fens was striking. Ruth Wilson was a terrific choice to be Mrs. Coulter.
  13. I'm trying to figure out how many states are in the US now. I know they've established Vietnam is a state, but the radically different-looking flag looked like it had more than 51 stars.
  14. Start in on Find Me, the mostly unneeded sequel to Call Me by Your Name. No opinion on it yet.
