Winnie The Pooh Is Back
I’m not sure if it’s just nostalgia or genuine enthusiasm, but I love that a lot of old, childhood movies are resurfacing in more updated renditions of the classics.
In recent years, films like Pete’s Dragon, The Jungle Book, and Jumanji have made their way to the big screen, using state-of-the-art technology to bring these old stories to life. Of course, the original versions of these books and movies were far more simplistic, even having drastically different storylines. And while nothing can ever live up to “the original”, it’s fun taking a trip down memory lane, even if it IS in 3D at an IMAX with surround-sound.
So, when I heard they were making a rendition of Winnie The Pooh, I was admittedly a bit too excited for someone my age.
However, seeing as Winnie The Pooh and the rest of the gang has been in circulation since 1926, I’m going to assume pretty much EVERYONE’S childhood was marked with some version of Winnie The Pooh. Which means, ya’ll should be stoked that this new, life-like version is coming to theaters soon.
I can’t promise it will live up to your childhood memories, but it’s bound to be fun for all ages.
It’s been two seasons since Colin Kaepernick first took a knee during the National Anthem in response to police brutality toward black Americans.
Chaos ensued in the wake of his form of protest. Other players (both in the NFL and in other leagues) followed suit, kneeling before games to show their support and camaraderie. Suddenly, journalists and viewers alike were in more suspense over who would or wouldn’t kneel as opposed to the actual game.
While many applauded Kaepernick in spearheading a political and social “awakening”, others vehemently protested the protestors, claiming that Kaepernick’s actions spit in the face of America and the people that fought for it.
Recently, the NFL implemented a rule that kneeling would result in fines and suspension, a clause that has stirred heated debates as to what free speech in America looks like.
A sportscaster in Dallas recently took the spotlight to blast this new rule and the rationale behind it.
