Tim Burton's comedy/fantasy Beetlejuice has become a cult classic since its 1988 release. After a happily married couple, Adam (Alec Baldwin) and Barbara (Geena Davis) die, a new family moves into their home. They want to reclaim their home for themselves, but every method they try - haunting, scaring, dressing up as ghosts - doesn't work.
Sherlock Holmes has fascinated fans for over a century, both in print and on screen. With the new Netflix film, Enola Holmes, his lesser-known teenage sister looks destined to give the world’s most famous detective a good run for his money.
“Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops.”

All children, except one, at some point ask, “Who am I?” They all know on some level that they are human, that they are a child and that they will one day be a grown up. This latter piece of knowledge occurs to them at about two, because two is the beginning of the end. Except for Peter. Peter has no end and no clear beginning for that matter. Peter knows that he is a child, a boy to be specific, but he will never become a grown up, a feat which is really rather impossible for a human. Peter knows this, which is why Peter doesn’t ask “Who am I?” but “What am I?” What is a boy who doesn’t grow up?

The Joker is an iconic super-villain in the DC Universe. Not only is he mysterious and clever in his wicked actions, but he has a good sense of humor too. His dialogues have a deep meaning and that is the only reason that though being a villain, his character is loved by all. The Joker was led by Heath Ledger in the Batman series and then followed by Joaquin Phoenix in the psychological thriller joker which was released last year.
From “Let It Go” to “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” to “Some People Are Worth Melting For,” Disney’s 2013 animated blockbuster, Frozen, provided fans with many memorable lines to cherish. And Frozen 2, its just as successful and beautifully animated sequel, is no different.
Disney characters show a lot of sass and cheekiness through their movies, which I never fail to appreciate. Here are a selected few I've found extra amusing.
Samurai Champloo, an anime from the same creator of the show Cowboy Bebop, is considered by many to be a classic in the anime genre. A staple on most anime fan's top 10 or even top 5. Just like its predecessor it's a unique show that tells its story in a way that is unlike any other anime or show of its kind. Personal opinions and anime snobbishness aside, it's a show worth watching for the style it oozes, from the soundtrack pieced together to match every scene like rain and coffee on a cold winter evening, the grace with which the animation flows that is crafted with the care of a master painter who not only perfected his every brushstroke but honed his own particular detail that is unique to him alone, and a narrative told in the way you might hear from strangers-made-friends travelling on a train, recounting stories and life lessons in a way that always leaves you wondering what details were left out and yearning for more (Okay, maybe I forgot to put aside the opinions and snobbishness).
Hilarious moments and more from the beloved sitcom, 'The Office.' The show started all the way back in 2005. It even has its own theme song... it's not the greatest theme song though. It's known to be the awkwardly more successful US version of the 'Ricky Gervais-led British original'. A show that has a quirky documentary style that follows the staff of Dunder-Mifflin who seem to, for the most part, have a problem with office romances.
