Would you believe that Elton Johns once said that Bohemian Rhapsody would never be played on the radio? Well, to be honest, he didn’t exactly put it that way.

The Original Color of Dorothy’s Slippers Were Silver, Not Ruby Red

I can imagine that I would be fairly accurate in assuming that the vast majority of people reading this would have only watched the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and never set their eyes on the original book. Sadly, for a lot of films that have been adapted from novels, this is a tragic trend. While being able to sit down and enjoy a story unfold in front of your eyes is a wonderful thing to experience, especially with modern day special effects, the movies often lack a substance called imagination, and they have been known to deviate from the original story. But ... Read more

There Was Going to Be a Gladiator Sequel Instead of a Prequel

So when I first heard of this plan for a Gladiator sequel I was a little disappointed that it never came to fruition. I mean, the original was a fantastic movie, full of violence, blood and gore and awesome special effects. Oh, and it had a storyline of some description attached to all of the fun. It was just simply a marvelous movie. But in reality, how could there be a Gladiator sequel if the main character had died, unless they planned on using another character, which they didn’t? So how was this all going to be played out? Now ... Read more

Who Framed Roger Rabbit’s Judge Doom Was the Man Who Killed Bambi’s Mother

Well here’s something that took me by surprise. The main antagonist in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Judge Doom, was the man who killed Bambi’s mother. Now for anyone that can recall either movie, both characters left a lasting distasteful impression on the audience. Even though the villain from Bambi, simply known as Man never physically appears on film once during the movie, viewers can tell that something revolving around him will happen when his music begins to play. This is in stark contrast to his possible later reincarnation in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, when he appeared throughout the movie regularly. Man, ... Read more

In this instance, it’s a case of a massive online legitimate video distribution site keeping close tabs on its illegal competitors to best serve its own interests. What am I getting at here? Perhaps the largest and most successful streaming video service on the planet, Netflix, monitors BitTorrent and other piracy sites so they know what shows to purchase.

Heath Ledger’s Portrayal of the Joker Scared Michael Caine So Much He Forgot His Lines

Some actors can turn a performance into a complete masterpiece. Take the Oscar winning performance of the late Heath Ledger, for example. There’s little doubt that any other actor in that year deserved the golden statuette more than he did. It really was a spectacular performance. It was so good that Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker scared Michael Caine so much that he quite literally forgot his lines. Hollywood is brimming with actors of varying degrees of talent. There are the actors that aren’t exactly that great, and perhaps really shouldn’t be acting, and there are the ones that are good ... Read more

Elvis Presley Was Blond

  Well they say that you learn something new every day, and today is no exception. Would you believe that the king of rock and roll, the man with the blue suede shoes, Elvis Presley was blond? As bizarre as this sounds it is actually true. The man who can be instantly recognized, and is emulated all around the globe more than anyone else that has ever lived, had locks of gold. Today Elvis is remembered as much for his singing career as for the numerous impersonators around the globe. But singing and dancing weren’t his only talents. Not long after striking ... Read more
