The Case of the Unsung Hero

Hey there, Cassettes! If we were to ask you, "Who is the hero of Die Hard?" You would have to say John McClane. What about The Princess Bride? Why, Westley and Princess Buttercup of course. Well sure, they're the OBVIOUS heroes. But what about the people on the side? Who are the heroes in the background? Every once in a while, the outcome of a movie hinges on the presence of one character; and sometimes that character gets overlooked. This week, we discuss the idea of an Unsung Hero in...

The Case of the Underrated Disney Classic

2/14/2019
More
When we think of a Disney Animated Classic, the same movies tend to come to mind (for example, The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, and Aladdin.) With as many as 57 movies that fit this category, it's only natural that some films will fall to the wayside. This week, we ranked our favorite somewhat-forgotten Disney Animated classics. We didn't choose the MOST forgotten, just our favorites that tend to be less popular. For more information, please visit us at:...

A Case Submitted for Your Approval

Premiering in Canada on October 31st 1990, "Are You Afraid of the Dark" was a horror anthology series for children created by DJ MacHale. It aired on Nickelodeon until 1996 (before a soft reboot in 1999) and followed a group of kids that gathered once a week to tell stories. They referred to themselves as "The Midnight Society." With stories that ranged from terrifying to downright silly, this show was a fan favorite on the SNICK line-up. This week we discuss this 90s classic and our hopes...

The (Brief) Case of the Not-so-Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is the biggest night in American sports. People all over the country gather to watch and eat junk food as two teams battle for the recognition of being the year's best team in American Football. This year, we didn't tune in so much to watch the game, but more to watch the commercials, the Toy Story 4 sneak peak, and above all, an ultimately disappointing halftime show. We like to use our "brief case" episodes as a chance to discuss more current events. For more information...

The Case of the Disney Re-makes

You know what they say, "If it ain't broke, remake it!" At least, that's how we think the saying goes. From Fuller House to Kim Possible, remakes are the biggest thing around. Studios have learned that just because nostalgia is priceless, it doesn't mean they can't make serious cash from it; and Disney is no exception.
