'Pixar Theory' creator: 'This is my love for Pixar movies manifesting itself in over-the-top conspiracy theories'

Negroni’s Pixar Theory has been causing quite a stir lately. In his elaborate blog post, Negroni created a sequential timeline of events, analyzing how iconic animated films such as Finding Nemo, Brave, Ratatouille and more exist in the same world at different times — with each one existing as the result of the previous one.

Merida from 'Brave' gets sexy makeover

You’re a pretty girl. You’ve got some acting chops. You come out to Hollywood and try to give the whole thing a go, and suddenly, you’re just average. That wild hair has become a liability. Those pretty eyes are a little too dull and oh, maybe just a centimeter too close together. Those lips could be a little fuller. And that waistline, well, let’s just say you should think twice before digging into that bread basket at dinner.

It happens all the time in real life. Is it a surprise that not even our animated images are safe from enduring a few cosmetic improvements? And for Merida, the tomboyish heroine of Disney and Pixar’s Oscar-winning Brave, she apparently needed a few enhancements before being unveiled as the 11th official Disney Princess.

So, without further delay, behold, the new and “improved” Merida.

Golden Globes: Who will win in the movie categories? Polls!

With separate categories for drama and comedy or musical, the Golden Globes won’t exactly predict how much Oscar competition Les Miserables‘ Hugh Jackman is for Lincoln‘s Daniel Day-Lewis, but look on the bright side: We have an interesting acceptance speech to look forward to if the Best Director award goes to one of the Oscar-snubbed — Argo‘s Ben Affleck, Zero Dark Thirty‘s Kathryn Bigelow, or Django Unchained‘s Quentin Tarantino. Who will win in the Globes’ 14 movie categories? Let’s take it to a vote below. Remember, this is who you think will win, not necessarily who you think should win.  READ FULL STORY

What is your damage, Princess Merida's hair?

What is your damage, Princess Merida’s hair? I am going through some MAJOR HAIR ENVY this week and it’s all 1,500 of your individually animated CGI curls’  fault!

You’ve completely mesmerized me. I see you everywhere now — undulating and breathing fire over my bed, waving your honorary Independent Spirit award in front of my face and whispering with varying degrees of fierceness, “Look at all my different textures.” I want to buy a blanket of you that I could drape over my head while in public and prop up somewhere in my line of vision while resting in private, non-mirrored rooms. Since you came into my life, I’d mist you so bad. READ FULL STORY

Could the heroine of Pixar's 'Brave' be gay? (Warning: Spoilers!)

Today, crowds will line the streets of cities like New York and San Francisco for parades that mark the high point of LGBT Pride Month. At the same time, legions of kids will swarm into theaters to watch Pixar’s Brave, the animated story of a young Scottish princess named Merida who goes to extreme lengths to avoid having to marry one of the three noblemen that her parents have chosen for her. The two events don’t seem to have much in common at first glance.  But it’s quite possible that while watching Brave’s tomboyish heroine shoot arrows, fight like one of the boys, and squirm when her mother puts her in girly clothes, a thought might pop into the head of some viewers: Is Merida gay?
