A couple of years ago, a foul mouthed teddy bear named Ted took the box office by storm, and, in true Hollywood fashion, a sequel was greenlit before the movie hit home release. While the first film was just exploring the world of Ted and his best friend, John Bennett  (Mark Wahlberg; Transformers: Age of Extinction), ... Read More

What if a meteor never hit earth and destroyed the Dinosaurs?  What if they still existed today?  What if they had human like qualities and the humans were more animalistic?  That is how Disney/Pixar marketed their newest release, The Good Dinosaur.  Interestingly enough, those themes play a small role in the grand scheme of the...
