Hulu & Netflix ‘Sleigh’ With December Adaptations

The holiday season is upon us, and you know what that means—families coming together to bicker and brawl about politics, panicking about decorations and dinners, and gifts, gifts, and more gifts! So hide away from all the chaos in either these book adaptations or the original books themselves.

 

 

This month we have the long-awaited release of Netflix’s adapted series, The Witcher, to be released December 20th. Marvel fans can find entertainment on Hulu with the 2008 Iron Man film released, and, for those of you who dare to watch it, Spider-Man 3 is being released at the end of December as well.

December is also bringing a whole lot of intense action and drama. The award-winning adaptation of No Country for Old Men will be shooting its way onto Hulu at the very start of the year, and the legendary martial arts film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon will also be released to start the month.

The Silence of the Lambs will be available to chill the already chilly season, on top of a new season of You.

Disney+ Is Finally Here! But Some Are Experiencing Problems

Today is the day that The Walt Disney Company launches Disney+, the company’s new streaming service set to compete with Netflix and Hulu in the upcoming streaming wars. With content from Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic, many people have been eagerly awaiting the launch of the service. It’s this high demand and anticipation that are causing problems at launch.

 

 

Those who already have subscribed to Disney+ have taken to Twitter to express their discontent with connectivity issues at launch. When trying to login to the website, an error message occurs. And when users finally log-in, some content seems to be missing, such as the various Star Wars films.

 

Here are some of the best tweets about the issues:

 

 

Disney released a statement later today addressing the issue:

 

The consumer demand for Disney+ has exceeded our high expectations. We are working to quickly resolve the current user issue. We appreciate your patience.

 

Disney+ is available now on all streaming platforms.

Top Five Hocus Pocus Memes

The month of October has come to an end, and what better way to celebrate the last day of the month than with the most-watched movie of the month, Hocus Pocus. This cult classic has been around for the past twenty-six years and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Once the month of October hits, Hocus Pocus is a must-watch. So, here are five of the funniest Hocus Pocus memes on the internet.

 

 

 

1. THE ACCURACY

This is so true! The world of Instagram automatically transforms from summer to spooky once the clock strikes midnight on October 1.

 

 

2.  UNLIKELY PAIRING

Cher, Tye, and Dionne didn’t peg me for the Sanderson sisters, but now that they’re put together in this meme, I can’t unsee it. Although, Cher is definitely more like Winifred, and Tye is more of a Mary in my opinion.

 

 

3. #RELATEABLE

This is most of us in the morning. Who has the ability to function until noon? Most of us can agree we are a total Billy, at least until we finish our first cup of coffee.

 

 

4. HOW?!

One of the best parts of the movie is when the Sanderson Sisters sing “I Put a Spell on You”. It is also the most random part of the movie because how could these three witches, who were just resurrected from the year 1693 know the lyrics to any song of the 20th century? And yet they have no idea what a bus is.

 

 

5. REPEPITION

When you get older you start to realize how often they mentioned Max’s virginity. As a kid, the movie is all fun and the adult themes go over your head, but then ten years pass and the word virgin is on a constant loop for the next ninety minutes. We get it, Max is a virgin. Even at the end of the movie he remained one.
