'Tangled' Review: Disney's Magic Is Back With Charming, Rousing Songs & Storyline

November 22nd, 2010 9:21am EST
Disney has had some hits and misses with animated films in recent memory. Sure, the mighty house of mouse made “Beauty and The Beast” “Aladdin” and “The Lion King” but “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” was sad, “Pocahontas” was oddly animated, “Hercules” was grotesque, and “Mulan” was lacking in song quality. The less said about “Home on The Range” the better.

So Disney went to CGI animated films and tried to play catch up to Pixar. The results thus far have been mixed. “Meet the Robinsons” was cute, “Bolt” was adorable, “Chicken Little” was middling, and nothing really captured the 90's magic...

Miley Cyrus Missed Out On
Teen superstar Miley Cyrus had the chance to make a lot more than the $10,000 a day paycheck she took in while making last year's Disney hit Bolt.

According to TMZ, Miley's contract for the film gave her the opportunity to make another $175,000 if the movie grossed $125 million or more in the U.S.; but, unfortunately for the star the film only grossed $114 million.

Further incentives reportedly would have paid out even more for every additional $25 million over that mark.

Miley recently released a third soundtrack from her hit Disney show, "Hannah Montana 3 - Songs From The Hit TV ...

Miley Cyrus hopes her new animated film Bolt will make kids more responsible for their dogs.

The actress/singer owns six pooches and admits shooting the family film made her realize just how important man's best friend is to her.

She says, "I love all my dogs and I hope that, after seeing this film, people will want to go home and love their dog. I hope kids realize, one, that you love your pets and know what great friends they can be. And two, that no matter what you do for a living, you have to realize that that can go away in a second."

2009 Oscar Predictions: Who Should Win & Who Will Win

February 20th, 2009 10:42am EST
After months of speculation, it's finally time to man up and throw down with some hardcore Oscar predictions. But before we tell you who will and should win the Oscar on Sunday night, let's address the whole secrecy notion surrounding this year's event.

You may not have heard (which is probably part of the point) but the Academy has decided to surround this year's ceremony in mystery. Mainly, they've refused to reveal who will be presenting Oscars this year and have gone so far as to forbid its presenters from appearing on the red carpet. Why? Because they think fashionistas will b...

The Best and Worst of John Travolta

December 4th, 2008 11:43am EST
John Travolta
In recent years, it's become hip to pick on John Travolta for his movie choices. It's strange, considering not many actors can say that they've starred in three truly iconic films (see numbers 1, 3, and 6 on the "best" list). He's also achieved longevity that many actors can only dream of, due in large part to his genuine, "good guy" persona. So, sure, he's made some bad films. Who hasn't? His good movies still outnumber the bad ones.

Since John is putting on the dog in the new animated hit, "Bolt," we thought it would be a good time to take a look at some notable films from Travolta's...
