Daily Disney – Stop the Projector!!
Image by Express Monorail
Ahhhh…. where do I begin? First, let me say that I absolutely LOVE all things Muppets. In fact, all things Jim Henson, for that matter. What a comedic and artistic genius, that guy. Now for the attraction… absolutely brilliant sums it up for me in two words. I love this attraction, so much so that I viewed it three times back to back on this last trip. And the funny thing is, even after seeing it SO many times, I discover so many new little details every time I experience this thing. You know how when you think of an attraction one scene kind of sticks out in your mind? Well, for me, for some reason it’s in the preshow when the penguin orchestra come on the screen for the first time, scrolling across the several screens in the preshow queue, getting ready to take their places in the orchestra pit. Mea… mea… mea mea mea… LOL when I think about it I laugh… I don’t know why, the oddest things amuse me.
In this scene, the penguins are upset with Sweetums because he just tossed a bucket of water on the orchestra, which was on fire from exploding fireworks. So how do you take out a giant nine foot tall monster? With a cannon of course. But they, being penguins, don’t exactly have the best aim. They don’t even come close to getting Sweetums and instead hit Sweedish Chef’s projector room. Now this upsets Sweedish Chef and he gets a cannon of his own and fires back… it is quite the chaotic finale that I get a kick out of no matter how many times I see it!

Program Could Reinvigorate Florida Film Industry
From “Flipper” to “Miami Vice,” from “The Yearling” to “Bad Boys II,” Florida has a long history in film and television. But companies have been increasingly looking elsewhere over the past decade, drawn by states that offer generous incentive programs. Florida is now ready to compete with its own tax credit program that both business leaders and public officials believe will help the state …

As Frozen Leaks Online, Its Writer-Director Assumes the Fetal Position
When the trapped-on-a-ski-lift thriller Frozen opened last February, it made less than $ 250,000. So when it turned up on IMDbPro’s Moviemeter index (which measures the top ten movies that people are searching for) last week at No. 7, among high-profile moneymakers like Inception , Takers , and Robin Hood , it would seem like sweet vindication and a sign of impending profitability for the film …
