Movie category of the week: Disney Renaissance movies

The Disney Renaissance refers to an era from 1989-1999 during which Walt Disney Animation Studios returned to making more musical animated films that were mostly based on well-known stories, and it allowed Disney’s animated films to become powerhouse successes at the domestic and foreign box office; making much more profit than most of the other Disney films of the past eras.

The animated films released during this period include: The Little Mermaid (1989), The Rescuers Down Under (1990), Beauty and the Beast (1991), Aladdin (1992), The Lion King (1994), Pocahontas (1995), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), Hercules (1997), Mulan (1998) and Tarzan (1999).


I really care about people, and I would need someone to also genuinely value other human beings and want to be connected with people in the world and to know about other cultures. That might not be a high standard for someone else, but for me, it’s really important to try and stick to that.


41 Of The Hottest Men Of Color Alive From Around The Globe

David Beckham is certainly a very handsome man who has been an icon of attractiveness for years and years now. What many found concerning and disappointing was that People named a white man as the sexiest man alive for the 29th time out of 30. 


Movie category of the week: Shakespeare adaptations and transformations subtle references to Shakespeare works found in Shakespeare in Love (x)

My story starts at sea… a perilous voyage to an unknown land. A shipwreck. The wild waters roar and heave. The brave vessel is dashed all to pieces, and all the helpless souls within her… drowned. All save one: a lady, whose soul is greater than the ocean and her spirit stronger than the sea’s embrace. Not for her a watery end, but a new life beginning on a stranger shore. It will be a love story for she will be my heroine for all time. And her name will be, Viola.

                                        Shakespeare in Love (1998) dir. John Madden
