How the Grinch stole Christmas is a holiday classic that has played annually on millions of television screens around the world since 1966. Original a children's book created from the imagination of Dr. Seuss in 1957, this story tells the tale of an outsider from mass society that is different and hated for being true to himself. Dr. Seuss was known for putting social issues into his stories and after a recent viewing of the 1966 animated movie, I have come to believe that The Grinch was saying a lot more about the oppressed Gay Culture of the 1950's then people knew. Could it be that Grinch was really Gay?

'Tis the season to have an affair? Well, that is what most experts are saying. I started thinking about this subject while walking through the mall today and seeing all those unhappy married men lost in their phones as they followed their wives around. A quick visit to Grindr confirmed my theory that married men are looking for a lot more then a candy cane in their stocking this holiday.

Nothing says the Holidays then a bunch of hot muscle men running around in nothing on but speedos and Santa beards. I must say, it was pretty damn hot and I am not just talking about the nearly 70 degrees weather we are having in Central Ohio.

The Good Dinosaur is the second Pixar movie to be released in 2015 and the 16th in the company's history. This is your basic "Disney" theme about a young character coming to age and overcoming his' fears while developing a friendship with another character that is different from himself. Although the story isn't original, what sets The Good Dinosaur above the others is the visual animation. It is breathtaking. Here are my thoughts about Pixar/Disney's latest film to stump onto the big screen.
