What’s On in the World of Cinema

Michael Bay is on a quest to ruin a true classic, Disney’s Frozen turns your children gay and a movie legend sadly passes away.

Alfred Hitchcock’s terrifying 1963 masterpiece, The Birds, tells the story of a small costal town under siege by droves of seagulls, pigeons and crows. It’s a truly chilling film that had me, for one, living in fear of birds as a child (adapted from a 1952 short story by Daphne du Maurier).

Now, sources reveal that Transformers director, Michael Bay, is set to remake it in his own vision. Although details are scarce at the moment, expect to see CGI birds levelling skyscrapers in fiery explosions as any fond memories you have of Hitchcock’s original film also come crashing down.

Hopefully he’ll just make another Transformers film instead and leave this gem alone.

Religious extremists seem to have a habit of making ludicrous claims, and Pastor Kevin Swanson of the Reformation Church has recently made the remarkably bold claim that Disney’s Oscar-winning animation, Frozen, is chock full of “gay-culture themes”.

On top of this, Pastor Kevin Swanson also shrewdly identified themes of bestiality in The Fixer-Upper Song and noted Disney’s association with the Devil himself, characterising the veteran company as satanic.

Obviously, this is nonsense, but the homophobic bigot was unrelenting in his attack on Disney’s latest movie, which has received mainly positive reviews otherwise. Check out his garbage here (if you hate life).

Finally, Hal Douglas, whose iconic voice served as the narration to countless famous film trailers, has passed away at the age of 89 last Friday.

You may not know the name, but you’ll know his voice from classic phrases such as “In a world…” and “Coming to a cinema near you.”!

Hal’s daughter revealed to the New York Times that her father passed away following complications from pancreatic cancer.

Mr. Douglas, you will be missed, but not forgotten. Rest in peace.

Check out this great trailer for Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedian in which Douglas shows off those stunning vocal chords that we have all come to know and love.
