How Pixar Solves Problems From The Inside Out

 It’s easy to forget that Pixar is a technology company. Mostly because the invention that they do is in service of a narrative. When done successfully, your attention is held by that narrative, not by the technical achievements that made it possible. With Inside Out, its newest feature due later this year, Pixar had its own unique set of technical challenges to overcome. A bigger vision… Read More Read more »

11 Disney songs clearly about doin’ it

Thumbnail

It’s no secret that Disney movies are chock-full of innuendoes. Whether intentional or not, many Disney movies from your childhood features some secret dirty line or background art that got past the censors. Sometimes though, Disney’s NSFW-ness is less seen and more heard. See also: 'Frozen' sequel is coming from Disney Almost every Disney movie has a love story, and every romance eventually leads to the parties in question making G-rated love. (A true love's kiss, if you will.) So the adult viewer instead just has to assume that these coupled characters are sealing the deal by picking up on strong hints of sexual tension in the music. That’s where Disney love songs come in. Read more... More about Disney , Film , Music , Watercooler , and Videos Read more »

Why Baby Groot stopped dancing when Drax looked up

Thumbnail

LOS ANGELES — There's no better way to ruin a joke than to explain it, so we'll let this slide as a "confirmation": Baby Groot didn't want Drax to see him dancing at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy because Drax the Destroyer isn't really down with dancing. Which ... we kind of assumed. But that little shade of ambiguity was in part why the scene worked; like Guardians itself, it was kooky, random and you just went with it. SEE ALSO: Baby Groot — Officially Licensed! — Will Dance Under Your Christmas Tree But for what it's worth, director James Gunn revealed on comedian Doug Benson's podcast that the Dancing Baby Groot moment actually had an antecedent scene, which didn't make the final cut. In it, still-full-grown Groot is awkwardly dancing to "Livin' Thing" by ELO, and Drax clearly disapproves. Read more...
