Disney is a favorite of ours, almost like a family. And as a family, you have to deal with all your relatives -- the good, the bad and the strange. Never forget that Uncle Walt was a product of his time, and as such, his cartoons contained some material that would shock our politically correct 21st century sensibilities.
Anyone can whistle or sing their favorite Disney song, but for every 'Under the Sea' and 'A Whole New World,' there are dozens of orphaned tunes that never made it into their respective film. Too bad, since many of these unfortunate victims of time constraints or script rewrites are really catchy.
Disney is as American as apple pie and other clichés, but most of the Disney animated motion pictures are based off of folktales from other countries. Though made with an English-speaking audience in mind (watch the way the characters move their lips) Disney has always understood the value of foreign markets and translates their films for viewing in other countries.
As we showed in our lost Disney songs list, no Disney film is set in stone from start to finish. Plots get written, songs get dropped and characters get redesigned. Looking at early Disney concept art is like finally reading that novel that your favorite movie was based on only to discover it's totally different. Still, there's a simple charm in seeing these characters immediately after being birthed, before they were fine tuned, polished and marketed through endless merchandise.
If you're like us, then you too have a love/hate relationship with sharks, aka "the assassins of the sea." We're utterly terrified of them, but we can't help but watch when they rampage a shore and snack on some unfortunate swimmers. Hollywood shares our love/hatred of sharks -- namely, they love the money they make for them and hate them enough to kill them off in multiple gory ways (impalement, explosion, electrocution).
Like most of the world, you're probably glued to the 2012 <a href="http://thefw.com/tags/olympics/"target=newOlympic games. However, when you're stricken by a few hours of Olympic blackout, there's only one way to get your fix. That is, watch these 10 films abo
It's hard not to feel racist just looking at this cover. Added to the fact that it's supposed to be Christopher Lee in yellow face, he doesn't even look Chinese. Or threatening for that matter. He looks harmless
This cover is a perfect storm of awfulness. Knowing nothing about this film, we can only assume it's about a masked little girl who murders fat men in wife beaters. Added to that entertaining idea is the fact that Brooke Shields of 'Suddenly Susan' fame gets top billing
The "demon" on this cover looks more like something Super Mario would fight. The crude artwork and dripping blood just screams, "I was drawn by an eleven year old boy!" You would think it's B-movie schlock made a shoestring budget
"Xtro may well make xenophobes of us all," proclaims this cover. It's more likely to make moviephobes of us with this embarrassingly bad cover. We're not sure what to be more frightened of, the crudely drawn brown goo that's supposed to be an alien or what looks like the kid from 'The Shining' wearing a turtleneck
The cover for 'Death Spa' really is a work of art. Let's start with the beefcake in the background. We're sure everyone would like to do this to the jocks from their own high school so it's really more amusing than scary
