Glee Season 6 Rachel Kurt

Glee
Season 6 Episode 5: “The Hurt Locker, Part Two”
Directed by Barbara Brown
Written by Ian Brennan
Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan

Air Date: Friday, January 30, 2015, 9:00pm

Last week’s Glee 6.4 “The Hurt Locker, Part One (spoilers!) explored the crazier side of Sue (Jane Lynch). The crazy we know – her irrational hatred of all things Glee. The crazy we didn’t know – her obsession with “Blurt” (Chris Colfer & Darren Criss), complete with shrine. It’s kind of uncomfortable. However, the songs were fabulously sung and performed as usual. My new obsession is that Vocal Adrenaline singer that looks like a 70s greaser and sings like Dennis DeYoung.

Glee 6.5 “The Hurt Locker, Part 2 picks up at the exact spot last week’s episode ends, at the end of the Vocal Adrenaline “Whip It” performance, where Sue announces that she will be judging the Invitationals to Will Schuester’s (Matthew Morrison) dismay.

The Gleek-down continues with Glee Season 6 episode 4 of the final 13, “The Hurt Locker, Part One,” which delves a little more deeply into the insanity that is Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). This Sue-centric episode explores her hatred of the glee club, and of her also surprising fandom of “Klaine” (Chris Colfer & Darren Criss). She vows to get them back together by any means possible. The lengths she goes to in this episode are hilarious. I think I will miss her the most.

It’s homecoming at McKinley High, which means many of our faves that made the original class so appealing are coming back to rile up some support for the glee club revival. The only thing is….once again…as in the first year, no one wants to join. Can Kurt and Rachel (Chris Colfer and Lea Michele) revive some Shue magic?

Glee begins its swan song tonight with a 2-part opener that brings everyone back home to Lima, Ohio. Although some feel that the show should have ended before the main members graduated, ending it this year does feel right.

Glee has always really been about misfits (ok – really pretty misfits) coming together and singing (and sometimes dancing) their feelings. It’s cheesy, it’s campy, it really stretches the boundaries on what actually happens in high school, but it still has what draw Gleeks to it in the first place – the songs. I still YouTube certain favorites like the “Dream On” duet by Matthew Morrison and Neil Patrick Harris (who hit the high note!); “Forget You” by Holly Holiday (Gwyneth Paltrow); the entire Rocky Horror episode, Artie (Kevin McHale) doing the “Safety Dance”; the Warblers singing “Teenage Dream” or singing anything; Puck (Mark Salling) singing “Beth” by KISS; and so much more.

Release Date: March 5, 2013

Get your head in the game. Disney’s best video game is not one you can play, but rather one you watch, as Wreck-It Ralph jazzes up the screen with pure fun and affection. Now the giant hit movie arrives on Blu-ray shelves. Press start for this Disney In Depth Blu-ray review of Wreck-It Ralph.

The bad guy doesn’t want to be a bad guy. Have we seen this plot before? Maybe to some respect, but Ralph takes this concept to a most pioneering level where puns and references a plenty do not interfere with sophisticated storytelling. Supposedly-villainous Ralph just wants some appreciation, so he ventures outside his ’80s-era game to prove his worth. He attains that value via unexpected means, meets some crazy folks along the way, and realizes his potential in who he has always been.

Disney In Depth: ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ and the State Of Disney Animation

Wreck-It Ralph smashed box office records for a Disney animated film in its opening weekend, and won over critics and audiences no less. With its creativity, heart and passionate storytelling, Wreck-It Ralph signals Walt Disney Animation Studios is back in the game, so to speak. This edition of Disney In Depth will explore what has led up to this new hit for the studio, as well as what awaits.

Many individuals say the Disney Renaissance began with 1989’s The Little Mermaid, with following entries Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King reaching even greater heights – everyone seems to leave out the forgotten The Rescuers Down Under. Regardless, this represented a period of unparalleled imagination and inspiration within the studio, continuing for several years to follow. Then came the slump. Audiences were no longer interested in musicals, so it seemed, and Disney animation switched gears into the sci-fi realm with productions like Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Treasure Planet. Computer animation emerged, and with that advent Disney entered the new arena with misses like Chicken Little and the awkward-yet-smart Meet the Robinsons. None of these performed all that wonderfully. It had appeared as though Disney lost its touch. But the studio had some exciting developments up their sleeve.

Wreck-It Ralph

There are only a few more weeks left before Wreck-It Ralph hits theaters, but the Disney Marketing team isn’t even close to done to pushing this wonderful film. We’ve seen a few trailers in the past, but this newest one has some new footage and even an new way to look at the iconic Disney Castle opening. Check it out below.

The trailer reveals nothing we didn’t already know. Ralph is the bad guy of an 8-bit coin-op arcade game who dreams of being something else. One day he breaks away from his programing and goes game hopping. But because the game relies so much on his presence, Ralph’s absence means that arcade managers would have to pull the plug on the Fix-It Felix Jr. arcade game, putting Felix and his fellow characters in the dark forever.
