Seabiscuit (M, 140mins) Directed by Gary Ross ****½

Shortly after Phar Lap stole hearts and wallets in Australasia, a little bay colt with gnarled knees took America by storm.

Seabiscuit, born in 1933, made almost half a million dollars for its owner, Charles S. Howard, between 1935 and 1940. Its rise coincided with the start of racing radio broadcasts and a population desperate for everything way to escape the effects of the Great Depression.

* Scooby-Doo at 20: When the Mystery Machine gang became less lively, more Buffy

Despite her not exactly catchy nickname (not a patch on Hoof Hearted or Miss Thunderstood), Seabiscuit (maritime foodies will pick up on her name when they learn her dad was Hard Tack) gained more columns in pre-Second-Second America. World War Hitler, Mussolini, or Roosevelt.

Using archival footage, the story of Seabiscuit was first filmed in 1949 as The Story of Seabiscuit. Despite the added benefit of using her son Sea Sovereign for the close-ups, the film had little to do with the story and more to do with giving teenage girl Shirley Temple a romantic role. and dramatic.

Seabiscuit is now available to stream on Disney+.

In 2003, writer-director Gary Ross aimed to right Hollywood’s past wrongs and bring to life the true story of the 1938 Horse of the Year. Using Laura Hillenbrand’s 1999 book Seabiscuit: An American Legend, Ross focuses on the three men who shared the glory that was “the greatest four-legged sensation since Hope and Crosby”.

There’s charismatic owner Howard (Jeff Bridges), outspoken trainer Tom Smith (Chris Cooper) and Red Pollard (Tobey Maguire), the oversized jockey who tells stories with the clash of red hair. Each of the trios is linked not only by the lame, hissing little horse with the talent to sleep and eat, but also by triumph, tragedy and tumult.

Seabiscuit is not without its flaws. It falls into the pitfalls of hokey dialogue and mandatory slow-motion camera work, but overcomes those hurdles with a mix of Ross’ inventiveness and a solid cast.

Part history lesson, part boy adventure, Seabiscuit is a superb sports drama, reminiscent of Chariots of Fire or Eight Men Out.

Along with using black-and-white stills from the era and fake Movietone reels, Ross infuses his film with a vast palette of vibrant colors (he is, after all, the man who gave us Pleasantville) . The film is lovingly crafted and has an easy charm, without ever overdoing the card of sentimentality this subject matter could have easily brought. Randy “Toy Story” Newman’s subtle but expansive score is also made good use of, but Ross isn’t afraid to turn it off either to ensure the images have their full impact.

Part history lesson, part boy adventure, Seabiscuit is a superb sports drama, reminiscent of Chariots of Fire or Eight Men Out.

As Maguire expands his repertoire and Cooper adds to his cannon of loose cannons (and William H. Macy blatantly steals scenes), it’s Bridges who deserves the applause. Evoking memories of his terrific turn in Tucker: A Man and his Dream in 1988, Bridges delivers a powerful performance.

It’s impossible not to notice Mark Paguio in “Spiderhead,” Netflix Philippines’ current #3 movie. First off, he’s the character who works closely with the film’s lead, Hollywood superstar Chris Hemsworth, and he delivers a standout performance in the sci-fi psychological thriller, bringing to the table everything the role required.

In the film, Hemsworth is Steve Abnesti, the penitentiary’s principal investigator and Spiderhead’s research facility, and Paguio is Mark Verlaine, his devoted right-hand man. The story takes place in a state-of-the-art prison where prisoners enjoy specific freedoms. In exchange for these freedoms, however, the inmates agree to become research subjects to test mind-altering drugs. Paguio, in fact, is Igor for Hemsworth’s Frankenstein.

Verlaine is actually the 28-year-old Sydney-based actor’s first role after guest starring in comedy-drama TV series ‘Bump’ and ‘The Unusual Suspects’.

Paguio tells ANCX he didn’t expect to be cast in ‘Spiderhead’ when he auditioned for it in 2020. He recalls receiving an invite, stating in large letters that the film will feature the actor Australian Hemsworth. “I laughed when I read it because I never thought I’d be able to get the part,” the Pinoy actor recalled. But he tried anyway. “I just wanted to have a little fun with this audition, so I sent [an audition piece].”

Paguio says he was inspired by the HBO documentary “The Inventor,” which tells the story of Elizabeth Holmes, a former biotech entrepreneur convicted of criminal fraud. Photo by IMDB

He was surprised to receive a callback request, and he soon found himself in a meeting where he would meet the film’s director, Joseph Kosinski, for the first time. A week later, Paguio was invited to do a chemistry reading with Miles Teller, star of the memorable “Whiplash” and scene-stealer in the current mammoth hit “Top Gun: Maverick.” Teller plays one of the inmates in “Spiderhead.” After a few days, Paguio received a call saying he had gotten the part, which meant he had to go to Queensland in two weeks.

Since he had to quarantine for 14 days after his arrival, he took the opportunity to prepare for his character. He did a lot of reading and research. He was inspired by the HBO documentary “The Inventor,” which tells the story of Elizabeth Holmes, a former biotech entrepreneur convicted of criminal fraud. He also read about the pharmaceutical industry in America.

Going through the script and its scenes, he envisioned the soundtrack Verlaine might listen to, the anime shows he would watch, the type of coffee he would drink. “For a whole month, I drank black coffee. I hate black coffee. But I was doing all these fun little things to help portray my character,” Paguio recalls with a smile.

Working with Hemsworth

The Legazpi-born actor admits he found it intimidating at first working with the cast of ‘Spiderhead.’ But it all turned out to be a substantial and fun learning experience. “I sort of loosened up as I went on,” he told ANC Rundown. “The more I started doing it, the more I learned so much every day, just talking to everyone and watching everyone work. It was a great experience.

Speaking with Hemsworth before the actual shoot, the two came to terms on what kind of relationship their characters would have. “We’re kind of like an old married couple in that we work very closely and sometimes get on each other’s nerves,” Paguio told ANCX.

The Filipino actor tried to tap into many contradictions describing Verlaine. “I was playing on the idea that I knew as much, if not more than Steve. What if I had to leave [the company], the whole system would break down,” he says. “I respect him, but he also frustrates me. I’m very empathetic and really care about the work we do and how it could help the world. But I’m also a bit desensitized to ethics and dark areas, so I would just sit there and watch people’s emotions get manipulated.

Working on the set of “Spiderhead” taught Paguio things he didn’t learn in acting school. He studied performing arts at Monash University and completed further training in theater at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts. “Nobody can teach you to be self-reliant, not to apologize, to believe in yourself and to fight for what you want. It’s something you have to practice. It’s something I’ve been witness [the actors],” he says.

Hemsworth and Miller were helpful throughout the process. “Chris was always giving me acting advice. Miles and I had pretty big discussions about acting and the craft, about his philosophies – a wisdom that can only be acquired over years of experience. ‘experience.

Make your mark

It’s only been two years since Paguio started playing professionally, but his first big break was 20 years ago. It was at the age of eight that he joined a community production called “Ambassador Popoy”. The play, organized by fellow Filipinos, was to help raise funds for villages in the Philippines.

The stage became an important part of his high school life when he performed in plays and musicals. This led him to take performing arts classes at university and since then he has been doing gigs in theater.

Paguio also worked quite early in the food industry. He was 18, a high school student, when he took a management position at KFC. Today he works as a waiter, which helps pay the bills, he says. Career-wise, however, what he really wants to pursue is acting. And he is grateful to have the full support of his parents.

Legazpi City Paguios moved to Australia in 1999. Mark was four years old at the time. His mother was a teacher but also had different careers. “She worked at the factory. She studied accounting and became an accountant. She got bored and studied law. Now she’s a migration agent,” the actor shares. “[My parents] understand that there is no one way to do things. So I think that’s why they support what I want to pursue.

He would like to take on more challenging roles in the future, tackling characters that reflect his own history. He would love to make films with HBO and A24, which produced the very famous “Everything Everywhere All at Once”. He likes the idea of ​​playing different characters and getting involved with them. They might not necessarily be Filipino, but Paguio thinks he brings his own Pinoy-ness to the job. “My way of working is very Filipino,” he says. “I like to bring so much joy into everything, and I work really hard. [Being a Filipino] plays a lot on the way I live my life and the way I work.

The film has already received endorsements from several Bollywood stars, including actor Neha Dhupia and filmmakers Siddharth Malhotra and Sharan Sharma. Calling Karan a game changer, Neha wrote on social media, “There is something about watching a great movie before release, this one being one, you can share how great a movie it is. Juggjugg Jeeyo is absolutely wonderful, funny and entertaining.

JugJugg Jeeyo marks Neetu Kapoor’s return to acting. Speaking of the same thing, Anil Kapoor said: “We have known each other for many years. She was like a member of the family, so obviously it was very sad when Rishi Sahab left us. When Karan said she would be in the film, I was very happy. What was great was that when she came on set, we never felt the heaviness of the whole situation. She never made us feel that way. She is a wonderful and courageous woman. I’m so happy that she’s working and I feel lucky that her first film (after her return) is with me. It’s been great for the film, great for all of us, and a wonderful opportunity for me.

A production team has found an ideal location for a movie scene featuring actor Joe Keery. The owner initially did not want to be part of it. She is happy to have changed her mind.

JORDAN, Minnesota — For a few weeks now, a movie production starring actor Joe Keery has been a trending topic in Minnesota. The ‘Stranger Things’ star drew big crowds – and big business – for a few small towns chosen for filming locations.

Several hundred Keery fans filled the sidewalks – and local shops – in Jordan on Monday looking for a glimpse of the actor while trying to escape record-breaking heat.

“It’s hot, so we’ve got our sunscreen, we’ve got an umbrella, we’re good to go,” said Gretchen Graham, who drove her daughter, Alaina, and friend, Delaney Meyer, into town from Prior Lake. .

“We’re really big ‘Stranger Things’ fans,” Alaina said.

Very few people in town knew much about the movie itself, which was reportedly titled “Marmelade,” but that only added to the intrigue for many.

“I think it’s really cool that they chose this city in Minnesota, out of all the places, it was really cool,” said Vivian Nguyen, who flew in from Eagan on Monday morning to see the shoot. “They were in that car and they were filming the shots over and over, and we could see them running around inside that building.”

Water Street Antiques is the building that Nguyen and everyone were obsessed with. But the business owner who was at the center of the filming almost canceled everything.

“Somebody decided this would be a good place to shoot a movie,” said Kathy Lapic, owner of Water Street Antiques. “However I didn’t.”

Lapic says she was concerned that an upfront contract for filming would impact the dealerships who share her building.

“I wasn’t going to cut off their income for five days,” she said, “So I declined.”

And the promise of a movie star walking into his store didn’t originally have much of an impact.

“When they told me, sent me pictures (of Joe Keery), I had no idea,” she said. “I haven’t had a television for 13 years.”

Lapic says she suggested the crew try another location, but they retaliated with a more attractive offer. They immobilized his store for a single day, in a corner of the building.

So what’s so special about this corner?

“I never found out why it was,” Lapic said. “There’s a window, an outside window there, bbut they were reluctant to explain many things to me. I think it was intentional.”

Lapic, who doesn’t even like being photographed, was fine with the secrecy and later developed a crush on Keery as well.

‘He was looking at the stuff we have here and was kind of interested in buying some things so I asked him if I could get an autograph for my great-granddaughter,’ she said. declared. “He very graciously gave this to me.”

Keery also signed for dozens of fans who braved the heat, including Alaina and Delaney.

“I’m so excited I’m shaking,” Delaney said.

“I’m going to frame it, display it,” Alaina said. “Make sure I can see him every day.”

Jasmine Resendiz, who lives in Jordan, also returned home with several autographs.

“I was here around 4 a.m.,” she said. “It’s so cool to see him up close like that, and especially since he’s filming in our little little town that isn’t really recognized. It’s kind of cool.”

Although he missed the big crowds due to filming the movie. Kathy Lapic says the cast and crew bought hundreds of dollars worth of antiques, and on Tuesday she had at least 20 customers telling her they stopped because Joe Keery came.

There’s a lot of potential in the premise of The lost girls. Traveling through the lives of four different generations of Darling women, the film explores candid themes that blur the lines of reality and fiction. Unfortunately, her biggest downfall is Wendy Darling Braverman, granddaughter of the original Wendy Darling and at the center of this particular story. All of the other Darling women have a lot of complexity in their characters, with Ella Rae Smith’s Berry delivering a stunning performance, despite the script’s clunkyness. Director Livia de Paolis’ performance as Wendy, on the other hand, fails to sell any endearing emotion.

It’s especially entertaining in a film that relies on the main character’s narration. To begin with, the narration itself here is already a form of counter-intuitive narration. However, Paolis’ bland and stale delivery further highlights the pitfalls of this technique. The script tries to save the scenes with references and quotes from the novel, but they sound out of place and disrupt the flow of the dialogue.

At times the film shows a glimpse of competence in its themes – there are awkward, intimate moments between characters of varying ages (from teenage Wendy and adult Hook, adult Wendy and ‘teen Peter, and teen Peter and pre-teen Jane), who do a good job of showing the dark side of never growing up; another great example is the idea of ​​losing loved ones to the clutches of fantasy and illusion. These are all interesting topics that are chained together by The lost girlsthe inability to scratch deeper than just the surface, leaving audiences unsatisfied.

In terms of production, he does his best to really focus on the nostalgia factor. It begins with an overview map of London, focusing on landmarks associated with the history of Peter Pan, like Big Ben. The cross-sections used to blur fantasy and reality are reminiscent of another adaptation of JM Barrie’s story, Peter and Wendy (2015), aAnd there’s a genuine effort to create magic from scratch, using light shows and flares rather than CGI to create fantastical scenes, and flower-filled backdrops with a heavy focus on the sky rather than elaborate backgrounds. Unfortunately, these visuals don’t make up for the lackluster protagonist and incomplete story.

The lost girls airs nationwide on the 17the June 2022.

In his own words, Dermot Weld describes the late 1970s and early 1980s as an incredibly difficult time for Irish racing and the country as a whole.

Son of an excellent trainer in his own right, Charlie Weld, Dermot, before succeeding his father, accumulated a healthy mix of experience.

He was an amateur leader in Ireland for three years and completed his veterinary studies at UCD.

Money was tight, especially at home, so before starting as a coach he made contact with owners in America and Australia. But in a time of uncertainty, getting a big win under your belt was crucial.

“I coached my first classic winners when Blue Wind won the Epsoms and Irish Oaks. Lester Piggott rode her for me and then Wally Swinburn rode her to win the Irish and then she was European three-year-old champion,” Dermot explained.
Blue Wind would prove to be the first of 27 European classic victories, including 20 in Ireland. With so many classic winners in Ireland, you’d think his biggest impact would have been at home.

However, perhaps Dermot’s greatest cultural impact has been on Australia, the racing scene below has changed forever since Coach Curragh’s visits.

The first seismic change came when Dermot and Mick Kinane traveled with Vintage Crop to Melbourne in 1993 for Australia’s biggest race, the Melbourne Cup.

They became the first cup winners outside Australia and New Zealand and in a 2018 article looking back at the race, Melbourne newspaper The Age called the victory “arguably the result that has changed the face of Australian racing”.

The significance of the victory did not escape anyone as the world watched an Irish horse take the cup. One visitor’s victory inspired other overseas owners to venture out in search of success. Even the Queen of England tried to win Australia’s first race.

A monumental event and significant enough in the eyes of the trainer to make a book out of it. Dermot wrote Vintage Crop: Against All Odds and the book ranked fifth in the Irish non-fiction charts.

Dermot, having documented his first Melbourne Cup, the win would leave his mark on the film industry with his second.
Following the Media Puzzle victory in 2002, a film called The Cup was commissioned to recreate the journey of Dermot, his team and, in particular, jockey Damien Oliver.

Damien’s brother Jason had died just a week before the Melbourne Cup after crashing during a trial at Belmont Racecourse in Perth.

Dermot landed at Tullamarine Airport in Melbourne and met a host of local and national media soon after.

“There was a huge doubt whether he was going to ride or not. They wanted to know who was going to put together Media Puzzle. They were asking me if it would be someone international or local,” Dermot recalls.

Dermot said, live on Australian television, after being asked who would be riding the Irish horse: “Listen, I’m going to wait for Damien and let him decide when he’s ready, he’s mourning a loss. But when he’s ready, he’ll let me know and I’ll wait as long as possible.

This show of compassion from Dermot would have a huge impact on the man in question, Damien Oliver. The jockey saw the interview and decided he was going to compete in the Melbourne Cup for himself and his brother.

The jockey would win the Melbourne Cup and Australian commentator Wayne Wilson described the home stretch in glorious and moving detail: “It’s the one Damien wanted, it’s the one he rides for Jason and Media Puzzle goes all the way.” to the line to win the Melbourne. Cup. Damien stands tall in irons, salutes the sky, it’s for Jason! It’s Media Puzzle, the winner of the Melbourne Cup.

A moment worthy of a movie and all that goes with it. Dermot, after his glee for Media Puzzle and Damien Oliver, should now help portray him on the big screen.

Dermot found himself helping Brendan Gleeson portray him and was pleased with the legendary Irish actor’s efforts.

“I think he did a good job. He came to the Curragh and spent a few days with me. He did extensive research into what is typical of the brilliant actor that he is,” Dermot explained.

“He stayed in touch throughout filming and overall it was a great movie. He came down and watched the horses practice and we went through things.

A book written about one victory and a film about another.

However, Dermot is no stranger to firsts in international racing. All the European classics are well documented, but the Curragh man has blazed new trails for Irish coaches around the world.

“The greatest victory of all at international level was the Belmont Stakes with Go and Go (1990) ridden by Michael Kinane. This is the third leg of the Triple Crown and so far no other horse outside the “America won the race. We’re still the only winner of this race from overseas,” Dermot said.

Dermot seemed keen to tick off continents as he went and when it was announced that Hong Kong had a new Group 1 race in the form of the Hong Kong Mile, he was straight on it.

“Myself and Michael Kinane brought two horses to Hong Kong. They competed in both Grade 1 races held in December in Hong Kong. Additional Risk won the Hong Kong Mile with a new track record at the Sha Tin Racecourse and Prudent Manner finished second in the Vase,” Dermot explained.

It’s great to innovate overseas, but there’s always going to be some special impact to winning at home too. Dermot kept his consistency in Group 1s and this year was no different with Homeless Songs winning the 1,000 Guineas.

After talking to various coaches and digging through their records, you always spot one. A gap. An exceptionally long stretch where a big run slipped their minds and they may have thought it wouldn’t.

Wille Mullins and the Gold Cup, Noel Meade and the Cheltenham Festival.

Dermot was the Derby of Epsom and it took Harzand’s victory in 2016, some 35 years after his first classic victory, to shake off that monkey.

“I always wanted to win the Epsom Derby. It gave me what felt like my finest hour. I had won the Irish Derby, won races all over the world, but it was that race that is still the pinnacle of flat racing in Europe that I hadn’t won,” Dermot explained.

But as a Curragh man, Dermot reflects more than fondly on his latest Irish Derby win. It was the same year with Harzand, ridden by legendary jockey Pat Smullen, who did the 2016 Derby double.

“It was a special year, a special horse. The great Pat Smullen will always be remembered. It is very difficult to get a good enough horse and you only get a limited number of attempts to win the big races. Me and Pat knew it was so important that we win,” Dermot recalled.

Great victories will always be etched in the memory, but what can elevate them to another level is a personal element. Dermot has a clear memory of a win that stood out for him when he coached Nighttime to a win in the 2006 installment of the Irish 1,000 Guineas.

That personal element that made it all so special?

“My mom raised her, owned her and I trained her and she continued to be great for us. Big wins and she made us proud when she raced,” Dermot said.

In the same vein as what wins, the Dermot special closed the interview by paying tribute to his stable at Rosewell House on the Curragh, and all the hard work that goes into it.

Dermot concluded: “I appreciate my two sons Mark and Chris who are heavily involved in the business. I had the loyalty of brilliant runners like Michael Kinane, Pat Smullen and Wally Swinburn. I was lucky to have a great staff and most of them have been with me for a long time. It’s all about teamwork. »

There are highly anticipated Disney live-action remakes on the horizon. With the trailer of Pinocchio not long ago published and other developments of The little Mermaid, that only makes it even more exciting for other Disney movies to be reimagined. One of these films is the mythological film Hercules.

The original animated story of a demigod’s quest to become a true hero celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary this year and is still remembered today as one of Disney’s funniest films. From catchy one-liners to hidden jokes about ancient Greece, some of the funniest quotes from Hercules can still split the sides of even the most serious viewers.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

ten Hades’ Wrath

“I have twenty-four hours to get rid of this bozo, before the whole plan I’ve had in place for eighteen years goes up in smoke… And you… wear… HIS MERCHANDISE ?!”


Hades explodes with anger in Disney's Hercules

The villain of Hercules is the silver-tongued Lord of the Underworld, Hades, who is not only one of the funniest characters in film, but one of Disney’s funniest villains. This is due both to his deft speaking ways (provided in a legendary performance by James Woods) and his hot temper.

A prime example is his discovery that one of his minions, Pain, bought a pair of Hercules sandals of his own accord. Hades’ angry exclamation perfectly combines his quick wit and temper in a brilliantly funny way. The moment is made even funnier when he sees Panic drinking Hercules brand lemonade and he explodes in a fireball of fury.


9 Why Phil doesn’t train anymore

“Two words: I’m retired.”


Danny DeVito as Phil in Hercules

Another memorable character from Hercules is Phil, the grumpy satyr hired to train Hercules to become a hero. Part of the reason Phil is such a great character is due to a fun performance from Danny DeVito, in one of his most memorable roles to date.

One of Phil’s notable habits is saying “Two Words” and saying any number of words except two. Most notable is when he first does this, explaining why he refuses to train Hercules. What makes this moment all the more fun is according to The list“I’m retired” is actually two words when pronounced in Greek.


8 Pain and panic are doomed

“Wasn’t Hercules the name of the guy we were supposed to… OH MY GODS!”


Pain and Panic are the clumsy minions of Hades. They are tasked with killing baby Hercules when he has become mortal, but having failed, they lie to Hades and keep him going for eighteen years until Hades learns from Meg that Hercules is still alive.

By the time Pain and Panic realize Hades has figured out their deception, the horror in their expressions is evident. As two comedic sidekicks, the line’s delivery is extremely funny (especially with the nod to the multiple gods of Greek mythology), but it’s hard not to sympathize with them when a very angry Hades unleashes his fiery temper on both of them.


seven Hermes observes

“You know, I haven’t seen so much love in a room since Narcissus discovered himself.”


Narcissus looking in the mirror in Disney's Hercules

The film begins on Mount Olympus, where the gods celebrate the birth of Zeus and Hera’s son, Hercules. There are a number of Greek gods present, and that includes the sassy messenger god, Hermes.

After presenting flowers to Hera, he comments that he hasn’t seen so much love “since Narcissus discovered himself”. Allusions to the tragic mythological figure who was cursed to fall in love with his own reflection are turned into a somewhat hilarious burning remark, and it’s made even funnier with the brief shot of Narcissus making faces at his reflection.


6 hercules the hero

“I’ve defeated every monster I’ve faced! I’m the most famous man in all of Greece…I’m an action figure!”


Hercules holding his action figure

With his handsome appearance and friendship, Hercules is one of the best anime himbo characters. After his energetic edit during “Zero to Hero,” Hercules feels ready to join the gods after becoming a beloved celebrity in Greece, but Zeus has to tell him otherwise.

Hercules’ initial protests about it are shocking without being arrogant, but what really makes this moment unforgettable is when Hercules pulls out a toy version of himself and exclaims “I’m an action figure!” while making the toy squeak. While this is an undeniably funny quote, it’s a fundamental part of Hercules’ character arc and his journey to becoming a true hero.


5 Phil’s very clear instructions

“Are you going to forget the head-chopping thing?!”


Hercules and Pegasus facing the many heads of the Hydra

Hercules’ first formidable challenge is to battle the dreaded Hydra. The large reptilian creature appears to have been defeated when Hercules chops off its head, only for three more heads to regrow in its place.

Hercules slices off heads again and again until only a writhing mass of large heads can be seen. Right after that hit, Phil angrily yells “Do you want to forget the head-chopping thing?!” Perhaps this is something Hercules should have figured out earlier, so Phil’s frustration is not only funny but also understandable.


4 Complaint after Hades credits

“What am I, an echo or something? Hello? Hello?! What am I talking to, hyperspace? Hello, it’s me! Nobody’s listening.”


Zeus with his arm around a displeased Hades in Hercules

Post-credit scenes in movies are always an unexpected surprise and Hercules contains a brief after the credits. Hades had been pushed into the River Styx with his fate unknown, but he can be heard at the end complaining about how he didn’t get a happy ending and how everyone ignores him.

RELATED: 10 Times Audiences Sympathized With Disney’s Villain

Hades’ sudden rant at the very end of the film is unexpected, but nonetheless a welcome one and a very laughable moment to end the film well. In fact, in a way, this moment could almost put Hades in a somewhat relatable and sympathetic light, especially when he growls “Nobody’s listening.”




3 Hades and the titans

“Uh, guys? Olympus would be like that.”


Hades standing in front of Disney's Olympus Hercules

Hades’ grand plan is to unleash the gargantuan Titans in order to take over Olympus. He ultimately succeeds, and the Titans unleash their monstrous powers on the world before heading to defeat Zeus.

This impressive introduction as the Titans head for Olympus is briefly but noticeably undermined when Hades interrupts and quickly points them in the right direction. The amusing interjection is a perfect quip that fits perfectly with the character of Hades, the humor and the tone of the film. It’s a little moment in Hercules but turned out to be one of the film’s most memorable scenes, introducing Hades as an intentionally funny Disney villain.


2 Hades does not see it

“It’s a guy!”


Hades exclaiming Hes a Guy in Disney's Hercules

In a turn of events, the jaded Meg had fallen in love with Hercules and decides to no longer work for Hades in her plan to eliminate Hercules. Hades doesn’t understand why Meg would sacrifice her freedom for Hercules by exclaiming “He’s a guy!”

It’s a moment that’s not only delivered well (complete with a confused Hades facial expression), but can be seen as a very relatable line in some ways. In fact, Hades’ line and expression are so brilliant that the scene has found its way onto the internet to be used as memes.


1 Meg is not a lady

“I’m a miss. I’m in distress. I can handle this. Have a nice day.”


Meg tells Hercules to have a good day

Meg may not be your typical Disney princess, but she’s definitely one of their best heroines to date. What makes her so adorable is her grounded outlook on life and her quick, sarcastic wit.

She also not only has one of the funniest lines in the movie, but one of the greatest. Captured by the Centaur Nessus, Meg sharply tells Hercules to go away and how she “can handle this”. So much self-awareness and daring seep from his words and leave Hercules momentarily unsure of how to react. Perhaps it’s this moment that instantly makes Meg one of Disney’s best female leads.

Some stories never get old – they’re gripping enough to warrant endless retelling. Examples of this exist in the worlds of literature, television and film. The most enduring stories often span more than one of these mediums and are driven by complex and compelling main characters.



RELATED: 10 Classic TV Shows That Were Rebooted As Movies

In particular, some movie characters have a lasting effect on viewers and thus reappear in several movies. Each new version of the character adds something to his original story. Some of the most recognizable movie characters are also the ones who’ve had the most iterations of themselves on the big screen.

ten Michael Myers is a longtime horror icon

For a man who spends his life perpetually hiding behind a mask, Michael Myers left a lasting mark on the horror genre. Myers’ shadowy identity is one of the many reasons he’s become such a recognizable – and duplicated – character. Since the first Halloween 1978 film to Danny McBride’s latest iteration, halloween is over, the public has seen many versions of the mysterious killer.

Michael Myers’ look may have changed slightly over the years, but he remains one of cinema’s scariest and most monstrous villains.

9 The Jekyll & Hyde story began over a century ago

Robert Louis Stevenson published The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde in 1886, but the story is still part of modern consciousness. The story is a classic tale of how the universal forces of good and evil manifest in otherwise ordinary people.

RELATED: 10 Books You Should Still Read Even After Watching The Movie AdaptationDr. Jekyll and his evil alter ego, Mr. Hyde, have appeared in over a hundred films since the book’s publication, including a 2021 live-action film. Additionally, the good doctor is said to have inspired an iconic villain from DC: Batman’s recurring enemy, Two-Face.


8 Zorro’s story goes far beyond the movies

Zorro has been around since 1919, when he first appeared in a novel by Johnston McCulley. Interestingly enough, the masked outlaw was actually inspired by a real person, which is why the story has so much depth. Zorro has appeared in movies many times since 1920, and there are rumors of an upcoming Zorro and Django Unchained crossover movie.

In addition to classic literature and several films, Zorro appeared in a 1950s Western-style television show and, more recently, in a series of comic books.

seven Frankenstein went from black and white to animation

The humanoid monster from Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, took on a life of its own. From TV sitcoms to Halloween costumes, it’s impossible to think of the horror genre without thinking of the hulking character.

In film, Frankenstein’s monster has appeared in both action and animated films since 1931. In February 2022, an adorable cartoon iteration of him reappeared in the fourth installment of the popular Hotel Transylvania children’s film series.

6 Hannibal Lecter had many faces

Dr. Hannibal Lecter is a cannibalistic serial killer who got his start in a series of Thomas Harris novels. However, his leap to the big screen was what really catapulted the psychiatrist into the mainstream. Anthony Hopkins’ portrayal of Dr. Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, Red Dragon, and Hannibalis probably the best known representation.

RELATED: 10 Psychological TV Shows That Are Messing With Your MindHowever, several other actors have also taken on the role, including Hannibal risingby Gaspard Ulliel and man hunter Brian Cox. More recently, the iconic killer appeared in the NBCTV shows Hannibalwhich describes his early work with the FBI.

5 James Bond is an enduring leading man

When it comes to the best of classic action movies, audiences need look no further than some james bond movies. Beginning with Dr. No in 1962, the soft-spoken Agent 007 has made twenty-five film appearances. Seven actors have portrayed the British secret agent on the big screen, including Sean Connery, Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan.

The film series even inspired a series of comic books, which had their heyday in the 80s and 90s. has yet been confirmed.

4 Tarzan had a Disney rendition

In 1999, Disney released Tarzan, an animated children’s film about the classic literary character of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Tarzan has appeared in over forty-five films and several novels since his birth in 1912. He also appeared in two top-rated radio programs in the 1930s and a short-lived television series in the 1960s.

Yet despite these appearances, audiences still haven’t seen the last of the man raised by apes. In 2023, Disney plans to release a remake of its beloved 1999 version of the story.


3 Dracula is a classic horror movie monster

Few horror movie monsters are as prolific as Count Dracula. To date, there have been hundreds of adaptations of the quintessential evil vampire. Dracula has appeared in action and animated films, stage products, novels, video games, and even comic books.

More recently, the character appeared in a movie titled Dracula: the original living vampire, with Michael Ironside as the charming Earl. The film received mixed reviews from fans and critics, but it proved that the classic Dracula story is just as relevant as when it first appeared in Bram Stoker’s 1887 novel.


2 Merlin is the quintessential royal wizard

Merlin is one of the oldest characters to remain relevant in the modern world. Its history dates back to the 500s and began as a Welsh folktale. Merlin is best known as the magical advisor to King Arthur of Camelot.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle struck gold when he created detective Sherlock Holmes in 1887. Since then, Holmes has become one of the most pervasive faces of pop culture, appearing in books, television shows, a countless number of movies and some top rated TV series. Benedict Cumberbatch played a completely modernized Holmes on the BBC hit series Sherlock in recent years.

Actor Robert Downey Jr. has also portrayed the sleuth in three recent films and is helping produce two more franchise sequels.
