The Black Cauldron (1985)

The Black Cauldron” (1985)

The Black Cauldron (1985)

This movie is terrible but the stories that came out of it are beyond delicious. More than ten years in the making (the rights were first optioned in 1971 and Disney reacquired the rights last year), The Black Cauldron was the first Walt Disney animated film to feature computer-generated imagery
the first to have a Dolby Digital soundtrack, the first to be rated PG and the first to extensively use 70mm since Sleeping Beauty in 1979. It was the nadir of the post-Walt period; the production was wasteful, exorbitant and creatively unfocused. And that was before Roy Disney, Walt’s nephew and a key board member, saw a rough cut of the film and was horrified by what he saw as excessive violence. He suggested trimming bloody sequences but according to James Stewart’s Disney War, confessed to producer Joe Hale, “I just don’t understand the story.” But that was nothing compared with the reaction it elicited in Jeffrey Katzenberg, the newly installed head of animation who had followed Michael Eisner from Paramount. “This has to be edited,” he proclaimed. “Animated films can’t be edited,” Hale informed him. Katzenberg stormed into the editing room and had to be talked out by Eisner, who informed him that Roy could handle the situation. The movie was postponed a year, with more of the objectionable material taken out and additional dialogue recorded. When Roy appeared on The Today Show and was asked what the movie was, he couldn’t say. When the film finally opened, it lost at the box office to The Care Bears Movie. The reign of Disney was official over. They had hit bottom. And watching the movie now, it doesn’t hold up any better. It’s still ugly and muddled, with simplistic designs (and this is after they had coaxed Milt Kahl out of retirement to do additional conceptualization). John Hurt as The Horned King, though, is the stuff of nightmares and is easily one of the scariest (and most underutilized) Disney villains ever (there used to be a very creepy Audio Animatronic version of the character in Tokyo Disneyland – YouTube it). The Black Cauldron is a noble failure but that doesn’t make it any more interesting or watchable.

the Godzilla Movies Ranked

Godzilla vs Kong

the Godzilla Movies Ranked : He’s been dissolved at the bottom of the ocean, frozen solid in an iceberg, blown up in a volcano, disintegrated in an atomic meltdown, and killed by missiles on the Brooklyn Bridge, but thanks to the millions of fans who love him, Godzilla will never die. Japan’s biggest star returns again in “Godzilla vs. Kong,” the latest entry in the Big G’s ever-expanding filmography. Pitted against his hairy rival for the second time in history, “Godzilla vs. Kong” is the fourth movie in Legendary Pictures popular MonsterVerse saga, which launched in 2014 with Gareth Edwards’ stylish reboot.

Like many long-running franchises, the Godzilla series has gone through a number of distinct phrases since its introduction. The first phrase, which covers the 15 titles released between 1954 and 1975, is commonly known by fans as the Showa era. These kaiju films (kaiju is the Japanese term for giant monster) are marked by their dramatic shift in tone, from the somber and haunting original classic to the wonderfully ludicrous “Godzilla vs. Hedorah.”

The second phase is often referred to as the Heisei era, and it includes the seven titles released between 1984 and 1995. These Godzilla films feature a greater sense of narrative continuity, and they ask complex philosophical questions about science and humanity. The third phase is the Millennium era, which covers the six titles released between 1999 and 2004. The majority of these Godzilla films are self-contained stories, much like an anthology series. There have also been a number of standalone reboots, both Japanese and American, that put their own unique spin on the character.

To help you program the ultimate monster marathon, here’s our Godzilla movie ranking, listed from wretched worst to bestial best. Long live the lizard king!


A Phoenix-area home was on the market

S-HOUSE — Make architecture

A Phoenix-area home was on the market for two years. The desperate owners continually dropped the asking price. One day a real estate investor sniffed a bargain and discovered the property was discounted below market value.

Detecting a gift horse, the investor immediately offered $100,000 below asking price in cash with a 10-day close. The owners snapped it up. Just 17 days later the investor re-listed and sold the home within a day at nearly full market value, netting a huge, fast profit.

What changed? Exterior and interior color, of course.

Money on the Table?
No one disputes the role of color in home selling. What can be vigorously debated is why home builders and developers aren’t doing more to take advantage of this obvious selling asset.

Just ask Shawn Hardy, senior vice president and general manager of integrated products at Associated Materials, the parent company for building materials brands such as Alside, Gentek, and Revere.

“Some builders take better opportunity of color than others, for sure,” says Hardy. “A drive through a new development often presents on-trend colors. But frequently the palette is very tight with only three or four colors represented. Why not six or seven colors? It’s an opportunity to broaden scope,” observes the veteran housing industry professional.


Onward (2019)

Trying to rank  films (most of which are available to stream on Disney+ Onward ) in order of quality is like trying to rank your children by how much you love them. None of these movies is bad, but when you’ve films, one of them has to be one of them has to be No. 1. We tried to keep context in mind — Toy Story had an ability to blow your mind in 1995 the way nothing could today — and also ambition: In the world of children’s entertainment, nothing has set Pixar apart more than its burning desire not to coast or mail it in. Some of these movies work better than others, but all of them were trying to do something special — so here they all are, from worst to best.


An uneasy feeling sets in for Onward’s first half, as we slowly realize the movie’s flimsy high concept (what if old fantastical creatures all became boring and suburban?) is being asked to carry some uninspired, familiar characterizations and yet another Let’s Go On A Quest! plot. (And that the movie’s idea of a sight gag is having a stop sign that reads “HALT.”) But just when you’re about to give up on it, Onward takes its first interesting turn, slyly flipping the concept of the destination being the journey all along, and the movie begins to feel like Pixar again, somehow finding a way to squeeze a little (if just a little) out of your tear ducts. The movie still feels a little half-baked, but it gets considerable mileage out of the simple visual of a pair of bodiless khakis, along with the most likable Chris Pratt since Parks and Recreation. They can do a lot better than this. But even at Replacement Level Pixar, they still find a way to crawl across the finish line.


Outdoor bathroom

outdoor shower

Decide on function

The first thing you need to do is decide whether your outdoor shower is going to be an outdoor bathroom experience, or simply a place to wash off dirt and sand. The type of function your outdoor shower will perform will influence the type of structure you need to build, the drainage requires, and the location of your shower in your yard.

Check with your council

Before installing an outdoor shower with both hot and cold water, be sure to check the regulations around such outdoor structures with your local council. Some councils require that an outdoor shower meet certain requirements, while other councils have very little rules at all.


Naruto: Ways Hashirama’s Wood Release Is The Strongest Kekkei Genkai

Wood Release is a Kekkei Genkai created by mixing Water Release with Earth Release. This Kekkei Genkai is quite rare and hardly ever occurs naturally, which is one of the many reasons why it is coveted. Hashirama Senju, the First Hokage of Konohagakure, is the only person in the series known to possess this Kekkei Genkai naturally.

Wood Release Can Help To Control A Jinchūriki As Displayed By Yamato

One of the many reasons why Konohagakure attempted to recreate Wood Release after the death of Hashirama was for its ability to control a Jinchūriki.

This was seen when Yamato was able to control Naruto Uzumaki to quite an extent by making use of the Wood Release Kekkei Genkai even when it was far inferior to what Hashirama Senju was capable of using.


Naruto: Every Member Of The Akatsuki, Ranked By Intelligence

Itachi : The Akatsuki was a group of powerful S-ranked rogue ninja who worked as mercenaries, but their true goal was to capture the Tailed Beasts in order to change the world. Aside from Zetsu, every single member of the group was a Kage-level ninja, which means that they were both strong and smart, but when it comes to pure intelligence, some members were smarter than others.


Like everyone else, Itachi has made his fair share of mistakes, and most of them revolved around his love for Konoha and Sasuke. After killing his clan to prevent a coup, Itachi joined the Akatsuki in order to look like a real criminal, but he also did it to spy on the organization for the 3rd Hokage.

Itachi’s intelligence was evident from a very young age, as he scored the second-highest score on the written portion of the Chunin Exams, which is part of the reason why he became a Chunin at 10. Itachi was constantly composed, observant, methodical, and calculating, even during fights, which is why he left very little room for error.
