Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss Are a Force to be Reckoned With in ‘The Kitchen’ – Review

The Performances in ‘Aladdin’ Deserve Praise, But the Cultural Criticisms Should Be Heard – Review

To talk about the newest iteration of Disney’s Aladdin, let’s move past the obvious: Disney wants to use its animation library for live-action films.
