    It was fun to watch this over wine and appetizers with friends. But looking back on these recent Disney live-action remakes, it's so clear that they should be focusing on remaking their older films (Cinderella, The Jungle Book) and leave their Renaissance blockbusters alone.

    This isn't to say a remake always has to be better than the original, and I'm definitely not saying that because I loved these movies growing up they shouldn't be touched. But the 90's Disney movies…

    Three years ago I went through the biggest breakup of my life. It was on my terms, but the adjustment to being single in my mid-20's while all my friends were coupled up was hard, weird, and shitty. I was forming into my final form of Jo surrounded by Meg and Amy's.

    I wonder often about what my reaction would have been if this had come out then. Because even now, every friend I've brought this to has been more…
