Any time a movie or a franchise ends perfectly, it always makes fans a little nervous to hear that there will be another sequel. That’s why a recent interview with Disney executive Jim Morris at DisneyLatino.com might put some fans of the Toy Story trilogy on alert. When asked about a fourth installment of the blockbuster Pixar animated series, Morris said that,
The third movie ended in a beautiful way and completed a trilogy. I think this movie is not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story … It is not a continuation of the end of the story of Toy Story 3. Temporarily it is, but it will be a love story. It will be a romantic comedy.
The Toy Story team hasn’t steered us wrong before, and director John Lasseter is at the helm, so the movie has all the makings of another great film, but a romantic comedy? Morris also added, “ It will not put much focus on the interaction between the characters and children.” Huh. Tread lightly Pixar. You’re messing with a lot of people’s childhoods here ... Discuss
Most people know Jared Leto for two things: Thirty Seconds to Mars and looking sort of like a heavily Americanized version of Jesus. Well, also for going crazy on drugs in Requiem for a Dream. Also for the greatest tweet of all time, hands down. OK, so there are a lot of reasons you might know Jared Leto, but now there is one less: his hair. The actor's famously long locks have been shorn off as part of his preparation for his upcoming role as the Joker in DC's upcoming blockbuster: We Can Make an Avengers Movie Too. Good night, sweet Jared Leto's hair. You were too beautiful for this world ... Discuss
Put down your three-cheese blast enchilada poppers. Step away from your double fried buffalo hot dog platter. In a clear, transparent case of blatant injustice run amok, it seem you, your food and your beliefs are no longer safe at Applebee's. Just ask Hiram Jimenez of Westampton, who simply went to Applebee's to get down on some fajitas. When he got his food, Mr. Jimenez bowed his head to pray, because Heaven is the giver of all good things and we know fajitas are good. Unfortunately, prayer—though often thought of as a place of refuge and safety—became a liability in this instance, in which grease from the sizzling fajitas popped right into Jimenez's face, burning his cheek.
Being a man of principle as well as prayer, Mr. Jimenez took his case to court, saying his Applebee's waitress did not warn him that his sizzling hot fajitas were actually hot. Yes. A true injustice. How was Jimenez supposed to know his fajitas were hot? Applebee's has dozens of menu items, and one can't be expected to know everything about them, or take in every single detail, visual cue and nudge of common sense. Alas, a trial judge has ruled that Jimenez will not be able to sue, since a waitress is not legally obligated to warn a customer "against a danger that is open and obvious." So the cruelty of Big Fajita reigns yet another day... Discuss
In a statement to the U.N's International Atomic Energy Organization, the U.S. said North Korea’s re-engagement of its nuclear program presents “clear violations of multiple (U.N.) resolutions and must cease immediately." The statement comes after the U.S. Army commander in the Pacific said military officials had detected "increased militarization" of the program, adding that the distance North Korean missiles could travel with nuclear warheads is “of great concern" to the United States. The U.S. is currently undergoing military training with South Korea, a country with whom North Korea is technically still at war with. At the same time, North Korea launched their own missile tests this week. The North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Su Yon told the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva that the military activity created “especially high possibility of sparking off a war," and claimed that his country could hit the U.S. with a preemptive nuclear attack ...

Looking for an online higher-education course that will truly give you a leg-up in all future employment opportunities? Well, look no further than “The Rise of Superheroes and Their Impact On Pop Culture,” taught by none other than Marvel mastermind Stan Lee. The online course, which is being offered from the Smithsonian, will team Lee with Dark Knight trilogy executive producer Michael Uslan and comic book business leader David Uslan to tackle such pressing, college-level questions as, “Why was the comic book industry nearly shut down in the McCarthy Era of the 1950’s?”, “When and how did comic book artwork become accepted as a true American art form as indigenous to this country as jazz?” and “When and how did comic books become acceptable again and eventually become valid teaching tools in universities and schools?” We’re assuming doodling in class will be encouraged ...
