Disneyland has always taken pride in describing itself as, “The Happiest Place on Earth,” and while most visitors would probably agree (largely to justify the insane amount of money they spent while there), not everyone catches Disney fever. Undoubtedly inspired by Luigi’s hateful glares from the newest edition of “Mario Kart,” this Disneyland visitor decided […]

The Top 10 Must-See Documentaries You Never Thought To Watch

I have always been a huge fan of documentary films. From the Academy-Award-winning, “An Inconvenient Truth” to “Blackfish,” documentaries have become an increasingly valuable and innovative cultural art form.
