It looked like Disney Animation was dead in the water for a while there. Sure, Pixar has had the company’s back for almost two decades now. In terms of movies that were solely produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, though, it was a bit of a downhill spiral from “Pocahontas” in 1995 to “Chicken Little” in 2005. While there were some under appreciated gems in the mix like “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” nothing took audiences by storm like “Beauty and the Beast” or “The Lion King” did.

When did everything become so complicated?
On the movie poster for “Planes’” and in a number of its advertisements is the tagline “From Above the World of Cars,” with the latter three words are carried over into the film’s title sequence. The goal, of course, is to link the film with Pixar’s popular “Cars” movies and equate that Pixar brand quality with its skyward brethren.

There have been many articles about Global Warming, carbon cap and trade, and sequestration of carbon dioxide. When writing about Global Warming they always indicate that its main cause is CO2 in the atmosphere, but CO2 has a Specific Gravity of 1.4, meaning that it is heavier than air, so can’t be found in the atmosphere. This is a ground hugging gas, that has positive qualities, as when it and rainwater impinge on plant life photosynthesis happens, causing plant life to emit oxygen.

If you’re just a casual swimmer, you probably don’t have to adjust your diet before jumping in. But that’s not the case with competitive swimmers, who must constantly watch what they eat and drink. You can learn a lot from swimmers’ consumption patterns — particularly if you’re an investor.
Robert Redford does his most compelling work in some time as both actor and director in "The Company You Keep," a tense yet admirably restrained thriller about a fugitive forced out of hiding after 30 years to prove his innocence. Adapted with clarity and intelligence by Lem Dobbs from Neil Gordon's novel, and lent distinguishing heft by its roster of screen veterans, this gripping drama provides an absorbing reflection on the courage and cost of dissent.

Cavemen — they're just like us! — or so "The Croods" seems to be saying with its familiar mix of generational clashes, coming-of-age milestones and generally relatable laughs.
A spider crawls up the leg of 18-year-old India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska) early in Park Chan-wook's English-language debut, "Stoker," and she regards it passively, intrigued.
Although I agree that Sen. Nancy Barto has assisted rural Arizonans with some of her health care bills alleviating regulations for anesthetist certification and pharma administration, I cannot overlook her self-proclaimed public policy advocacy for fewer Federal mining regulations and lower business taxes. She is also a prolific Capitol voice continually propelling regulation on female body parts and even voted to cut Medicaid reimbursements, nearly crushing rural hospitals. Therefore, I look at the Legislator of the Year award from the Arizona Rural Health Association as just another pandering distinction to another legislator who does not represent me in any way.

Understanding that language is limited in its ability to describe some things, the ancients often used metaphors to speak of the divine. Three of the most common were fire, water and wind. They are three things that can be quite wonderful: a warm fire on a cold evening, water to grow crops, a cool breeze on a hot summer day. They are also things that can become large and uncontainable: a brushfire, a flash flood, a tornado that uproots mighty trees.
What makes the Emmys such an exciting award show to watch is, unlike the Oscars, the winners are not prematurely set in stone. Almost anything can happen on the big night, sometimes resulting in the greatest underdogs triumphing in victory. I’ll do my best to predict what will win on Emmy Sunday. Even if I’m wrong though, at least I can undeniably say which shows should win in each category.
