It’s that time of year again! Hallmark has just released its full 2018 Keepsake Ornament Collection, and while the horror offerings are definitely on the light side this time around (The Walking Dead being pretty much it for 2018), there are still tons of fantastic sci-fi themed ornaments, as well as a delightful collection of Halloween-themed ornaments and decorations fans are going to want to check out. Also, huge props to Hallmark for showing some love to Firefly this year, as well as my very favorite episode of the classic Scooby-Doo TV series as well.

Film Voice-Overs: Top 30 greatest performances ever, ranked worst to best, include Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy, Ellen DeGeneres

Film Voice-Overs: Top 30 greatest performances ever, ranked worst to best, include Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy, Ellen DeGeneres
Among the most memorable moments in film history, many have come from actors you never see on screen. They are voice-over performers with some as huge movie stars and others are folks whose names you don’t know well — but they have in common a dedication of getting their character right and the skill to pull it off.

Although there have been occasional rumblings in the awards world about the possibility of a particularly celebrated voice-over performance becoming an Oscar nominee — there was some talk of Robin Williams for “Aladdin” in 1992 and Scarlett Johansson for “Her” in 2013 — no voice artist has ever received an Academy Award nomination for their performance. One possible reason is that most voice performances appear in animated films, where acting rarely receives its due. But several of the most memorable voice-overs have been in dramas or adventure films, several of which made our list.

In compiling this ranked list,

Key & Peele Return For Director Henry Selick’s New Feature – You Know, That Guy You Thought Tim Burton Was

Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key have signed on to re-team for director Henry Selick’s new-stop motion film titled Wendell and Wild. The duo will provide voices for the stop-motion animated feature playing two scheming demon brothers. Who exactly is this Henry Selick fella you ask?

Admit it, You thought Tim Burton directed The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach, and Coraline. It was in fact Mr. Selick. Selick is known for his unique style, who you ever so foolishly thought was Tim Burton’s style. His (not Burton’s) new film will be landing on Netflix in the not-too-distant future. This will surely disappoint those who enjoy stop-motion theatrical releases, but who will no doubt relish in the fact the new film Wendell and Wild also features the re-teaming of Key & Peele.

The script will be written by Selick, Peele and Clay McLeod Chapman. Peele is a busy man.

Key and Peele to reunite for Henry Selick’s Wendell and Wild

Following on from his Oscar success with Get Out, Jordan Peele is set to reunite with his longtime comedy partner Keegan-Michael Key as the duo lend their voices to Wendell and Wild, a new stop motion animated film from Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach).

The project is based on an original idea by Selick, who also has the video game adaptation Little Nightmares on his upcoming slate, and is being written by Selick, Peele and Clay McLeod Chapman. Netflix is financing and distributing the movie, while a deal has also been struck with Simon & Schuster to publish a book version penned by Selick and Chapman.

Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key Reunite For Henry Selick's Stop-Motion Animated Netflix Film Wendell And Wild

Jordan Peele, hot off his Oscar win for Get Out, is teaming up again with his Key & Peele partner Keegan-Michael Key for a new movie called Wendell and Wild. This is a stop-motion animated film project set up at Netflix, and it's being directed by Henry Selick, the man who previously brought us The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline. Selick also co-wrote the script with Peele and Clay McLeod Chapman (The Boy). When previously talking about the movie, Selick offered the following story details:

"Wendell and Wild is a comedy about two scheming demon brothers who must face their arch-nemesis, the demon-dusting nun Sister Helly, and her two acolytes, the goth teens Kat and Raoul."

Key and Peele will provide the voices of the demon brothers. This sounds like the perfect project for everyone involved. I'm especially excited that Key and Peele will be working on a project together again.

Zooey Deschanel Cast as Belle in Disney's Beauty And The Beast Live Concert

If you didn't care for Emma Watson in the role of Belle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast live-action film, maybe you'll like the casting choice for the upcoming live-concert better.  Zooey Deschanel (500 Days of Summer, New Girl) will take on the role of Belle, and in my opinion, she is a perfect choice! I'm a big fan of Deschanel and I think she has a lovely singing voice. She'll do a much better job singing those classic songs than Watson. Don't get me wrong, Watson did a fine job acting in the role, but her singing ability just wasn't the greatest.

Deschanel joins an all-star cast that also includes Taye Diggs as Gaston, Rebel Wilson is playing a gender-swapped version of Lefou, Kelsey Grammer will play Lumiere, Jane Krakowski is Mrs. Potts, and Anthony Evans will take on the role of the Beast. It's an interesting cast

10 Movies Parents Thought Were For Kids (They Were So Wrong)

<p>Ah good ol’ cartoons. Can you remember watching them on saturday mornings? It’s safe to assume that cartoons generally remind us of our childhood right? The bright colors and outlandish characters usually signify kid friendly stories. Occasionally there are adult jokes or innuendos inserted in these kid movies, usually for the parents sake and they go over kids heads. But cartoons don’t always equal family friendly, sometimes parents get it all wrong. We have compiled a list of some of these cases, you won’t believe what made our list. Especially our last two.<br /> One of the most shocking is definitely Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. It’s a disney movie for crying out loud, what could possibly be wrong? Well the plot is slightly spooky but it might not be for all kids. There are some pretty creepy characters, like the kid with a hatchet for a hat.

Best Santa Claus Movies of All Time

Who doesn't love Santa Claus? This jolly, rotund individual with the big white beard is loved and revered by all. In fact, he is the ultimate uniter. I defy you to tell me any religion that doesn't at least smile somewhat (regardless of how they feel about Christmas) when they see this iconic being. Santa Claus has been portrayed by people of all walks of life. Some looking like the Jolly Ole Saint Nick we see in Norman Rockwell paintings, and other's looking like Don Knotts. Santa is a symbol and that symbol has found no better home (no pun intended) than on the silver screen.

For years this character has been portrayed in movies. He has appeared in cameos and starring roles. In fact, it seems that just adding Santa Claus (and the holiday season) to a film can make it have a longer life. People love nostalgia. They
