Walt Disney PicturesThe movie is just so iconic and fun that kids love it no matter when they were born. They are even making a sequel to it starring Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel-Miranda.

We all wished that some eccentric candy man would give us the keys to a factory that made the most wonderful things.Unfortunately it never happened for us, but it's probably for the best, as most of us would have fallen into the traps long before we made it to the end. The kids who did get to go to the Wonka factory were such a big part of our childhoods it's normal to be

Who Remembers The Outrageous And Insane Plot Of This Amazing Movie?

The 80s made some of the best movies ever. Are they cheesy? Sure. Are they goofy? Of course. But are they amazing in every possible way? Absolutely. The romantic comedies of the 80s were just so wonderfully ridiculous with the most outrageous plots and I love them for it. Overboard was a fantastic movie starring none other than Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Now, the premise was a bit unusual but try to follow along. Goldie Hawn plays a rich woman who is rude to contractor, Kurt Russell, and refuses to pay him. She is unbelievably privileged, I mean, she

Wile E. Coyote Is Finally Getting His Own Movie So The Road Runner Better Watch Out

Everyone has watched Bugs Bunny and his buddies get up to all kinds of crazy hijinks, and we all had our favorite characters. Some people really loved watching Sylvester fail to catch Tweety, while others preferred to watch Bugs completely humiliate Elmer Fudd. For me, Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner were always one of my favorite parts of the entire show. If you ever need a lesson on persistence, Wile was your guy. No matter how badly he failed, how many cliffs he fell off of, or mountains he ran into, that dedicated and hungry fellow never gave

'The Witches' Are Coming Back With A Brand New Movie And We Don't Know How To Feel About It

If you didn't read Roald Dahl books as a kid, what were you even doing with your time? There was no better collection of books for children, and the range of themes and plots meant that there was something for everyone. The Witches was probably one of the best though. It was the perfect combination of creepy and fun that made us keep reading long after our parents told us to go to bed. In 1990, they made a movie based on the book, and it was absolutely awesome. While it wasn't a huge box office success, critics loved it
