Robin Williams in 'Back to Neverland: Walt Disney's MGM tour video'

Back when Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios was called MGM Studios, Robin Williams did a tour video explaining the Animation department to guests attending the park.

It's a fun piece that not many people have seen.

Check it out!

This explains Genie's outfit in Aladdin.

The text reads: 
“We're deeply saddened by the loss of Robin Williams, a wonderfully gifted man who touched our hearts and never failed to make us laugh. An incredible actor and a comedic genius, Robin will always be remembered for bringing some of the world’s favorite characters to life, from his zany alien on ABC’s Mork & Mindy to the irascible genie in Disney’s Aladdin. He was a true Disney Legend, a beloved member of our family, and he will be sorely missed. We join Robin’s friends and fans everywhere in mourning, and offer our thoughts and condolences to his family during this difficult time. – Robert A. Iger, chairman and chief executive officer, The Walt Disney Company

Some things in Hollywood will never be forgotten, even if they were never made.

Nicolas Cage as Superman, directed by Tim Burton, written by Kevin Smith is one of those things.

Goes to show you that not every idea is gold.  Also, not even Hollywood money can save a film.

Quentin Tarantino Believes Digital Projection is the Death of Cinema.

In some ways Quentin Tarantino is correct about the way we now display films in a public forum.  But, as a populations, we've come to expect crystal clear films at home and "we" want the same when we pay $10 or more at a Theatre.

Do you think Cinema is dead?
I know that the desire to rush to a theatre to see a film has dimmed in my own personal life.  I find, more and more that I say, I'll wait for to come to Netflix.

 Most people I know don't even buy DVD's or Blu-rays anymore.  Now, that's not the case with me, I love owning a film for my collection.  But, again, even that love has slimmed.  Maybe it's just that films aren't that exciting anymore?  Maybe I don't see the same public push for gritty films like 'Pulp Fiction' had.  Tarantino has a knack for making people want to see his films and that isn't the case with most directors.

 I notice more and more that the same types of films are released in a theatrical setting and I rarely have friends who will go to see anything at a movie theatre.  I miss it.  I miss the sound of the 35mm film projector spinning at the back of the theatre.  I miss the anticipation to see a film.  I don't think we will ever get that back and maybe a lot of that has to do with how quickly film studios are able to put a film in a cinema and then crank it out on DVD, On-Demand and Blu-ray across the world.

 I don't think film is dead.  I just think creativity is stifled by how quickly the audience can buy or ignore a new film.  If digital projection wouldn't have become the social norm, maybe then there would still be a desire to go see a movie in a theatre?

Terrific short film called 'First Kiss'

Kissing someone for the first time can be awkward, exciting, nerve wracking and wonderful all at the same time.

In this short film, director Tatia Pilieva asks a few random strangers to kiss for the first time.  What happens is both funny and beautiful.

Seeing people react before the kiss and after is quite amazing.

Miss Coco Peru Plays "Grand Theft Auto V"

I haven't laughed this hard in a while.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Miss Coco Peru, she is fantastic.  Check her out in the film 'Trick' or her cameo in 'To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar'.

Here, you can watch her play the violent and hilarious "Grand Theft Auto V".  Her commentary is terrific.
