‘Ralph Breaks The Internet’ Video: Watch Vanellope Sing “A Place Called Slaughter Race” In Its Entirety

A Place Called Slaughter from Ralph Breaks The Internet

Among one of the best things about Ralph Breaks The Internet is when Princess Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) sings “A Place Called Slaughter Race.” It is a hilarious satire on Disney songs where a princess has their own musical moments and expresses their search for what they truly desire through song. The self-deprecating sequence pokes fun at how these princesses break into song spontaneously and is set against the grimy and deadly world of the racing game Slaughter Race.

Now fans of that song can now experience it in all its fun and silly glory with the newly released “A Place Called Slaughter Race” music video. Check it out below.

‘The Grinch’: Listen To Tyler, The Creator’s New Version Of ‘You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch”

The Grinch

With a new movie based on Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! on the way, naturally we needed a new version of the song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” The man with the best name ever bestowed upon a child, Thurl Ravenscroft, sang the song for the classic 1966 animated special starring Boris Karloff as the voice of the title character. For Ron Howard’s 2000 adaptation star Jim Carrey sang the song himself. And now, a new version for a new generation.

Despicable Me, Minions, The Secret Life of Pets, and Sing animation studio Illumination Entertainment has released a lyric video for their take on the song, performed by Tyler, the Creator, for the upcoming animated feature The Grinch starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character. We heard parts of the song used in the most recent trailer, and now you can hear it in full.

Titan Comics
Release date: August 28, 2018

Yellow Submarine, the animated, trippy, visually eclectic and highly memorable film which starred The Beatles and is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, has been given the graphic novel treatment, and it’s a fun and colorful whimsical ride on paper as much its film counterpart.

Written and illustrated by Bill Morrison, founder of Bongo Comics, well known for its Simpsons adaptations, The Beatles Yellow Submarine takes the best elements of the original cinematic release and adds a vibrancy and clearly long-rooted passion for the intrinsic subject matter.

‘Crazy Rich Asians’: Read Jon M. Chu’s Letter To Coldplay Asking For Permission To Use “Yellow”; How Katherine Ho Was Chosen To Sing It

Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians is truly one of the best films of the year. But you don’t need my review to convince you. The film blew past its box office expectations earning itself a $26.5 million dollar opening weekend, and $35 million dollars overall when it opened last Wednesday. It may have been 25 years since we’ve seen an Asian ensemble of this size in a mainstream rom-com, but it does prove that Asians can lead a film and subvert some of those Hollywood clichés. But that wasn’t the only thing that brought me to tears. Aside from Kina Grannis‘ cover of “Can’t Help Falling In Love,” The Voice season 10 contestant Katherine Ho‘s cover of Coldplay’s “Yellow” left me a sobbing mess. And I don’t even like Coldplay.

So how did director Jon M. Chu get permission to use that song – a song with a title that’s also a derogatory term towards the Asian culture – and how did Ho become the voice of a song that is considered to be an anthem? Check out the full story, Chu’s letter, and the song if you haven’t heard it below. Minor spoilers follow.

Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin, a pioneer of R&B and Gospel music and who rightly earned the title of Queen of Soul, died today at her home in Detroit after a battle with pancreatic cancer, according to CNN. She was 76.

The death of Franklin signifies an end to a life that was rich and robust, as colorful and full of memorable musical art as the woman herself. For over six decades, the singer’s instantly recognizable voice stretched to the emotional stratosphere and she became a titan not only in music, but provided a soundtrack, especially in her early superstar years, for a turbulent civil rights movement that was just at its peak during the late 1960s.
