Salty Reviews: Jungle Cruise

Like a digital turd floating downriver, Disney’s latest green screen spectacle, Jungle Cruise is headed to theaters and Disney Plus (+$29.99) on Friday. The movie stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt, and it’s supposedly inspired by classic jungle movies like The African Queen (1951) and Romancing the Stone (1984). It feels more like the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Disney’s Jungle Cruise

“Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny.” – C.S. Lewis These days Disney seems busy doing one of two things; either they’re adapting one of their animated films into live action or they are adapting an attraction from Disneyland into a feature film. A remake of The Haunted […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Cruella

“Madness is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.” -The Joker Heralded as the Joker of the Disney world, Cruella is an origin story intent on humanizing an otherwise wholly despised villain. Embodying the black and white villainess and to a brilliant extent is Emma Stone. While it follows certain typical Disney tropes, […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: The New Mutants

“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.” – Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man I never thought it would actually happen but The New Mutants is finally here! It’s like a dream, a really mediocre dream. I had zero expectations for this particular movie except that it was never going to see the light of […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Onward

“Grief is in two parts. The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life.” -Anne Roiphe The loss of a loved one is a tough thing to talk about. Considering it’s something every last living creature faces you would think otherwise but in reality it’s one of the hardest things to face, whether […]Read More

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Movie Review

Let me start by saying that The Last Jedi is nothing like The Empire Strikes Back. There was a lot of criticism with The Force Awakens that the story was too similar to A New Hope. So with that, Disney fixed a problem, but in my opinion they created a lot of others. Star Wars: […]Read More

Mama’s Boys Movie Review: Coco

Disney/Pixar’s newest hit, Coco, hit theaters on November 22, and centers around Dia de los Muertos- a holiday that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey in the after life. As usual with Disney and Pixar, the […]Read More

Freaky Friday at the Alley Theatre

TGIFF! What’s the extra F for? Freaky! Disney’s Freaky Friday, the new musical based on Mary Rodgers’ charming 1972 children’s novel and the two movies it inspired, is now playing at the Alley Theatre in downtown Houston (through July 2nd). I recently had a chance to check it out and I left the theater with […]Read More

You may have read my preview which included a recap of the first Mondo/Disney art show, 2014’s Nothing’s Impossible. I’m happy to report that Never Grow Up lived […]Read More

Her Take on Mondo & Disney’s Never Grow Up Gallery

Growing up, we didn’t have much more than family portraits on our walls. Sure, living in Alaska provided us with a few prints here and there of a fireweed framed view of Denali, but we were limited to what was in our backyard. There’d been lithographs from our local stores or the cinema if you […]Read More

The Oh My Disney/Mondo collaboration, Nothing’s Impossible, took place in Austin, TX during SXSW and drew crowds of enthusiastic fans and collectors, many […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Rogue One

So here we are, finally face to face with the first (of many more to come) “stand alone” Star Wars and I’m pleased as punch to say Rogue One is a tremendous and worthwhile addition to the ever-growing Star Wars ethos. I mean, let’s be real. If you’re reading this you’re going to watch the […]Read More

Nerdlocker Movie Review: Finding Dory

Pixar is back with Finding Dory, the sequel to their wildly successful 2003 hit about a timid, overprotective clownfish who teams up with a forgetful blue tang in order to track down his handicapped son who was captured by scuba divers. Finding Nemo was made for $94 million and it went on to make almost […]Read More

Motor City Comic Con 2016 Days 1 and 2

Nananananananananana Batman! Adam West and Burt Ward were certainly the headliners of this year’s Motor City Comic Con. The con was littered with Batmen and Harleys (even more than usual). Reys and Kylo Rens were also plentiful. The highlight of the con for me was the fist bump I got from Adam West on the way […]Read More
