Adaptation Comparison: “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast”

Adaptation Comparison: “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast”

Within the past decade or so, Disney has been on a major kick of remaking their classic animated films into live action adaptations for the big screen. Part of me is not 100% sure why because it is a rather strange kick to come by but it has produced some truly fascinating films as a result. Some of them have been decent (“Cinderella”, “The Jungle Book”). Some of them have been interesting (“Maleficent”). Others on the other hand have been…

Yoga Beginnings: A Chakra Meditation

Yoga Beginnings: A Chakra Meditation

But what exactly does the word ‘yoga’ mean, how does this meaning spill in to these traditions, and what does this say about yoga as a whole? The word…

Movie Review: The Modern ‘Mummy’ Films (1999 – 2017)

Movie Review: The Modern ‘Mummy’ Films (1999 – 2017)

One of the biggest movie releases coming out this month (June 2017 at time of writing) is a new version of ‘The Mummy’. Technically a soft reboot of the 1999 films as well as the 1932 black and white series of films from the Universal era of monsters, it comes with a lot of curiosity and anticipation with some of the changes it’s supposed to bring to the franchise including the introduction of the first evil female Mummy. I’ve always…
