What were they thinking?! While Marvel certainly are guilty of their own blunders, DC's missteps do nothing but widen the gap between them and their competitor, at least in the cinematic universe department. While all these films have something to offer, there's no denying they all feature their fair share of blunders.

The Instantly Viral Story About Andy’s ‘Toy Story’ Dad Is As Bogus As It Is Heartbreaking

Image
Disney The Toy Story franchise has delivered a fair number of emotional gut punches over its silver screen run. Millions of adults, children and inanimate objects sobbed many a tear during THAT Toy Story 3 scene, so really all the cards are on the emotional wreck table. That’s probably why an alleged Toy Story character detail has Twitter in a frenzy and a Pixar titan stomping out the claim.The hullabaloo centers around a claim about Andy, his dad and Woody made by Toy Story consultant Mike Mozart during an interview with Jonathan Carlin for their YouTube channel Super Carlin Brothers. Mozart relayed that he was told by Pixar writer Joe Ranft before he passed away. Ranft revealed (according to Mozart) that Andy’s dad died of polio and that Woody was Andy Sr.’s childhood toy. That means the doll was passed down to Andy and it’s all very sad.Bummed out by that lil’ detail? Well, don’t be for long. Pixar veteran Andrew Stanton, who co-wrote the movie with Ranft, says that the whole Andy a…

How to Make Gougeres (French Cheese Puffs)

Image
Cheese gougères are essentially French cheese puffs. They are great to serve as an alternative to dinner rolls or as a tasty appetizer. Gougères should be crispy on the outside and soft and cheesy on the inside. Make plenty of these cheese puffs because they are quick to eat and tend to go fast. To make cheese gougères, prep the ingredients and tools, mix your ingredients and form the balls, and serve them while they are hot and steamy on the inside.EditIngredients1/2 cup (118.3 ml) of whole milk1/2 cup (118.3 ml) of water1 stick (14.8 ml) of unsalted butter1/2 teaspoon (4.9 ml) of salt1 cup (236.6 ml) of all-purpose flour5 large eggs1 ½ cup (354.9 ml) of coarse grated cheese (gruyére or cheddar)Makes 24 gougèresEditStepsEditPrepping for the Cheese GougèresPreheat the oven.

What Does The ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ After Credits Scene Mean For The Future Of The Series?

Image
Paramount WARNING: Spoilers for the ending of Transformers: The Last Knight aheadThere seems to be a consensus that the latest entry in the Transformers film franchise is not the best waste of time at the theater this summer. The Last Knight is reportedly Mark Wahlberg and Michael Bay’s final hurrah with the transforming robot series, but that doesn’t mean it’s the last film we’re going to see with these characters. There’s the spin-off with Bumblebee dropping next year, featuring the voiceless robot in the ’80s, and then Bay has teased the existence of at least a dozen more sequel ideas to be explored in the future. While he might not be directing them, someone will be carrying to torch and using it to blow things up for a long time.So where does The Last Knight come in? It’s got last in the title, but the film doesn’t even tell a story that could be considered the end for the Autobots, Decepticons, and whatever human characters become the true focus of the films next time around.

Edgar Wright Discusses His ‘Heartbreaking’ Decision To Split With Marvel And Leave ‘Ant-Man’ Behind

Image
Marvel Baby Driver auteur Edgar Wright and Marvel Studios parting ways over Ant-Man certainly raised many an eyebrow a couple years back. After all, Wright’s the sort of director with a stellar resume of imaginative and ambitious works that seems like a lovely fit for a superhero motion picture. (Even considering that Scott Pilgrim vs. The World wasn’t exactly box office juggernaut.) Speculation naturally reigned after the exit over why the this partnership might have happened and a very “diplomatic” answer from Wright is speaking volumes in 2017.Appearing on Variety‘s Playback Podcast, the Cornetto Trilogy director shared his take on the matter.“I think the most diplomatic answer is I wanted to make a Marvel movie but I don’t think they really wanted to make an Edgar Wright movie,” said Wright. “It was a really heartbreaking decision to have to walk away after having worked on it for so long, because me and Joe Cornish in some form — it’s funny some people say, ‘Oh they’ve been workin…

Sir Ian McKellen Is Disappointed By Magneto’s Costume Options In The ‘X-Men’ Films

Image
Fox It’s safe to say that Sir Ian McKellen owns the role of Magneto at this point. Even with Michael Fassbender taking over the character for the past three X-Men films — alongside the original in Days Of Future Past — McKellan has added Magneto to the list of his iconic roles. Still, that doesn’t mean the role doesn’t leave the legendary actor with some disappointments, both about Magneto and superhero films as a whole. While chatting with Variety at the Cannes Lions, the actor talked about the current administrations views on the LGBT community and the lack of gay heroes in superhero films:“I wouldn’t say the films coming out of the mainstream are quite as related to what’s going on in the real world as I would like them to be…One indication of that is LGBT people don’t really get quite a big enough say. If you’re one of those initials yourself, you do notice that actually these movies are not about me at all.”It could be argued that the X-Men films and stories have always been about…

How to Make Yourself Go to Sleep on Time

Image
Getting enough sleep can be a difficult feat to accomplish in today’s world. Getting through the day tired and de-energized is rough on a person, both mentally and physically. If you struggle with getting to sleep at a reasonable time, there are a few things you can do. By eliminating distractions in your bedroom and creating a bedtime routine that you follow each night, you can help train your body to get ready for sleep at a normal time.EditStepsEditPreparing Yourself for BedtimeAvoid caffeine before bed. Caffeine is widely known to be a stimulant, often causing people to feel jittery or more alert. Ingesting caffeine before bed, even if you are a regular coffee drinker, can make you feel more alert, delay your sense of sleepiness, and keep you from getting to bed on time.[1] This means avoiding beverages like coffee (even decaf coffee), soda, and non-herbal teas.Chocolate also contains measurable amounts of caffeine. It’s a good idea to skip the chocolate before bedtime as well.Stop…

Will Ferrell Confirms Those Claims About Mariah Carey’s ‘Diva’ Behavior That Ended Up Being Cut From ‘The House’

Image
Rob Huebel revealed some trouble on the set of The House back in May stemming from a planned cameo by Mariah Carey. The comedian revealed that Carey had some issues with the way her reported cameo was written to play out, noting that the singer was “hired to sing one song” that she didn’t want to sing and felt that a scene where she was shot and killed didn’t work because she didn’t think her character “would get killed by bullets.”The Will Ferrell / Amy Poehler comedy is set to hit theaters last week, but not before the Carey fiasco returns to the headlines thanks to Ferrell himself. During his recent appearance on Late Night, the SNL alum confirmed the difficulty with Carey’s planned cameo in the nicest way possible:“There were suggestions that weren’t executed. She was on our set and, um, things happened. Things happened and didn’t happen…“Let’s just put it this way: At about midnight, I got a knock on my trailer and said, ‘You can just go home. We’re not going to get to you.'”…
