Movies According To Mischief – Lion King

Lion King Directed by: Jon Favreau Cast: Donald Glover, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, James Earl-Jones, Seth Rogan, Billy Eichner, John Oliver Let’s start off with an unpopular opinion: Please can Disney stop making all the classic animations as live action! There is no need, they aren’t as good as the original animation and it seems to be waste of time and energy when you could be producing new original films! … And breathe...A popular opinion is how hugely talented Donald Glover, or some of you may know him by Childish Gambino, actually is. Actor, musician, writer, producer, director, comedian. Is there anything this man cannot do? I urge you to check out This Is America music video, as I see it as true artistry but be warned (seriously), there are strong themes and scenes you may find disturbing. You have been warned! So, when Disney decided to do a live action remake…

Movies According To Mischief – Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans

Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans Directed by: Dominic Brigstocke Cast: Emilia Jones, Sebastian Croft, Kate Nash, Nick Frost, Warwick Davis, Sanjeev Bhaskar In my younger days, the most coveted books in primary school was the Horrible Histories collection, by Terry Deary. The gruesome details and fun childish humour are what we craved and to be honest, we probably learnt more through the books than we did through our teachers in History lessons, covering the Stone Age up to the Second World War. I do not know of anyone who has not heard of this collection of books or has not read at least one of them. I was obsessed and would read them over and over again. Now, as I am a little older, I am less appreciative of the fact that the popularity of these books has led to it being made into a TV show. I…
