Movie madness through the maddening eye of Photoshop.Movie madness through the maddening eye of Photoshop.

Roger Rabbit sequel apparently in the works.Roger Rabbit sequel apparently in the works.

I'm guessing that this sequel would probably feature an up to date cast utilizing some of Disney's newer characters which range from Pixar's catalogue all the way over to the newly acquired Marvel library.  Can't be any worse than Looney Tunes: Back in Action, can it? Wait, maybe it can.

A thorough debunking of laser usage in selected Hollywood movies.A thorough debunking of laser usage in selected Hollywood movies.

Didn't we say everything we needed to say with the last two Short Circuit movies? Must we bring Johnny 5 to this generation? That space has already been occupied by a cuter robot named WALL-E.

Disney would like you to be able to watch your movies anywhere.Disney would like you to be able to watch your movies anywhere.

Disney's new initiative is called 'Keychest' and you just might be able to have your movies delivered via some nifty cloud-computing concepts. They also hope that the initiative will prolong the relevancy of DVDs and Blu-ray so don't go throwing away all of your discs just yet.

When you aliens are watching Independence Day, I hope what you really take away from it is this: Randy Quaid can kill you. That’s not good news, space monsters. Randy Quaid isn’t our best human. Here on Earth, we make Randy Quaid wear a helmet when he tries to think.

The only problem is – during their initial escape attempt – the Space Ranger gets severely damaged. To the point that Woody & friends are forced to hit Lightyear’s reset button. Which then puts Buzz into Spanish-speaking mode.
