'Mannequin' Was One Of The Weirdest Movies Of The 80s, And We've Still Got Some Questions

I know that 80s movies are a category of their own. Sure, there are rom-coms and action movies, but then there are also 80s rom-coms and 80s action movies. They are different, they are unparalleled, and they are just better than other movies. Case in point: Mannequin. The outrageously bizarre 80s rom-com brings joy to all of our hearts (or at least those lucky enough to remember it) even though the premise is absolute bonkers. Here's the thing, I love this movie with my whole heart. I can probably quote the entire thing to you right now (I won't) but

'Free Willy' Star Jason James Ritcher Arrested For Domestic Violence

Former child actor Jason James Richter, star of the iconic movie Free Willy, has recently gotten himself arrested. Many of us have forgotten about Richter, especially because he had stepped out of the spotlight for several years. He only started acting again in guest spots on shows like Bones and Criminal Minds in 2009, but nothing seemed to relaunch his career. Warner Bros. He continued working though, taking small parts in a variety of projects, with several movies set to be released this year, but apparently there's been a lot going on behind the scenes. The actor-turned-musician was arrested on

'Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret' Is Finally Getting A Judy Blume-Approved Movie

Judy Blume is one of those classic authors that creates stories that transcend time. One of her most famous books called Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret was published all the way back in 1970, but it still resonates today. The story follows young Margaret Simon as she makes her way through one of the most difficult time in her life: puberty. We've all been there, we all made it through, but we all remember what it was like to go through all of those changes. Margaret became something of a touchstone for young girls who were dealing with

'The Conners' Showrunner Discusses The 'Painful' Decision To Kill Off Roseanne

The Conners premiered on Tuesday night to some very solid numbers. While it didn't get the same impressive score that the first Roseanne reboot got, the network is happy with their 10.5 million viewers. The episode showed us how the Conner family was dealing with the loss of the matriarch, and more importantly how they learned that she had in fact died of an opiod overdose. Fans of the original series were divided over this new spinoff, with some saying that it was completely unfair that Roseanne Barr was kicked her off the series. Many fans supported the show

In Defense Of The Disney Princesses That People Just Can't Stop Criticizing

Alright, I know that people tend to have varying opinions about the Disney princesses, and believe me, I get it. My opinions change on them every time I watch the movies again, or when I hear another well made argument.People have said that the older Disney princesses aren't always the best role models. Whether it's because they give up something, fail to save themselves, or something else, they are critiqued as being a bad influence for young girls. But I am here today to provide some over-analytical reasons why they aren't as bad as you may think. Are they

Disney Has Released New 90s Themed Merchandise, And Now We've Got To Go Shopping

I think we can all all agree that Disney movies are basically perfect right? Sure, there are some aspects of them that are a little outdated when it comes to the princesses, but our nostalgia filters have kind of blurred all of those lines anyways, so we can just appreciate them for being great. The songs, the stories, and all the characters were the stars of our childhoods, and we were all lucky enough to grow up during the famous Disney renaissance that brought us a whole new era of classics. Another bonus of living through the 90s meant that

'The Conners' Premieres With An Intense Emotional Episode That's Got Everyone Talking

Well, the day we've all been waiting for has arrived and The Conners finally aired their first episode. The hype surrounding this show has been undeniable, as everyone has been debating on whether or not the show should have been cancelled. Some people believed that if ABC thought that Roseanne Barr was too controversial for their network, then they shouldn't have brought the show back in the first place. When it was cancelled, they thought it was a huge overreaction. People got even more opinionated when ABC officially announced they were going to be bringing back the rest of the

Jamie Lee Curtis Reveals What Convinced Her To Come Back To 'Halloween' Again

The original Halloween movie is one of the most iconic scary movies to have ever been made. Jamie Lee Curtis' performance as Laurie Strode, aka the only babysitter you should trust your children with, made the slasher movie stand the test of time. Okay, maybe part of it was the iconic villain of Michael Myers, but it just wouldn't have been the same without the tough and capable Laurie. When they announced they were going to be making another Halloween movie, this time bringing back Curtis in her legendary role, people got curious. Normally a revival like this gets attacked

Another Iconic Video Game Is Getting A "Mega" Live-Action Movie

When you were growing up, the library of video games was nowhere near as extensive as it is now. There were obviously a lot of good choices, but compared to the variety now, it was such a small percentage. Clearly it was because video games were still new when we were all young, but what we lacked in quantity, we made up for in devotion. Sure, there weren't new games every day that we could play on our phones, or elaborate and large games with graphics that end up looking so realistic it's creepy, but we did have characters that

We've Still Got Some Big Questions For Inspector Gadget Even After All These Years

Truth be told, I loved Inspector Gadget. The show was one of my all-time favorites when I was a kid, and the theme song still pops into my head from time to time. But just because I loved it, doesn't mean that I don't think it had some issues. I do, however, have some questions for Mr. Gadget, ones that still confuse me to this day. (And yes, I know it's a cartoon and it's best to not examine it too closely, but just for fun, let's do it anyways.) How did Gadget actually get his job? If he's a
