Why I'm Mad At Disney (Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, Marvel, Magic Kindom, EPCOT, World)
This is a twenty-minute therapy session in which I explain why I'm currently a little upset at Disney as a company. We cover Disney's purchase of Fox (again), talk about the rising ticket prices of the parks at Disney World while the rides themselves continue to decline, and look to the horizon with the construction of Star Wars Land (Galaxy's Edge) and the injection of Marvel into the parks. We also look at the tenure of Bob Iger as the CEO of Disney and see how he compares to the notorious Michael Eisner. It's less angry than it sounds, and we might actually figure out a thing or two about ourselves and the way we interact with our entertainment!

It's a detective movie that takes place 15 years after the classic film noir cycle had ended, depicting a character out of time, sleepwalking through a world that is not his own. The plot is opaque, and there are details to the story that aren't made known to the audience, even when the final credits have rolled. It's both a commentary on the Golden Age of Hollywood and a criticism of artifice. Is anything real? Elliott Gould (2001's Ocean's Eleven ) stars as Philip Marlowe, a private detective first created on the page by hardboiled author Raymond Chandler and embodied in film and television by Humphrey Bogart ( The Big Sleep ), Dick Powell ( Murder, My Sweet ), Robert Montgomery ( Lady in the Lake ), Robert Mitchum ( Farewell My Lovely ), James Garner, and Powers Booth (TV's Marlowe and Philip Marlowe: Private Eye , respectively). In the capable hands of Gould, Marlowe goes from con
1988's My Stepmother is an Alien is a very strange movie that could only have been made in the 1980s. Part lusty sex comedy, part sincere family tale, it never really figures out what it wants to be. Its greatest success, and the reason to view the movie all these years later, is for the powerhouse performance from Kim Basinger. Coming just two years after her steamy, career-making turn in 9 1/2 Weeks , this movie takes a pretty big risk on Basinger, who must not only look stunning, but also be funny. Her comedic skills were not a known quantity in 1988, but lucky for us, she's hilarious.

As she mingles at parties and tries to fit in with customs that are totally new to her, she's discovering everything for the first time with wonder and confusion. The 1990s sitcom 3
