Weekly Recap: Princesses Kissed Frogs and Danced With Beasts

For a blog with contributors who are largely middle-aged men, we spend a lot of time talking about Disney.  This week, a sizable portion of the conversations centered on Disney princesses.  After viewing the live-action remake of the animated classic, Beauty and the Beast, Daffy reached out to me to ask if I had seen it.  I hadn’t, but when Daffy calls I go into action.  Once we had both seen the movie, we exchanged a few emails which became the basis for one of this week’s articles.  Daffy pulled everything together and added pictures like the one above which served as an illustration to a joke I made about how my date for the original movie likely viewed me.  But he didn’t stop there.  To cap things off, Daffy also arranged for LeFou to handle recapping duties this week.  So without further ado, here is LeFou.

Did you miss last the recap last Sunday?  Unfortunately, I got caught up in some less-than-risky business that prevented me from posting last weekend.  But I’m back this week and to make it up to you I’m going to recap the last two weeks of articles here at Le Blog.  So get comfortable in your seat, stop watching whatever Tom and Rebecca are up to and let’s get to recapping.

Weekly Recap: Countdown to Oscars!


We have spent most of the month of February counting down to the 89th Annual Academy Awards.  Tonight is the big night and you could definitely feel the excitement building all week here at Le Blog.  I’m pretty sure Daffy Stardust cloned himself.  Otherwise, I have no idea how he managed to crank out two Oscar-related articles daily.  Plus he also recruited an old friend of the site, therealadri, to contribute her annual look at the costuming category.  It’s been a week of glitz, glamour and Lego bricks.  Let the weekly recap begin!

Weekly Recap: Ingrid Upsets Katharine, Best Songs Are Sung and Scooby Dooby Doos

Beauty and the Beast

It’s a tale as old as time and a song as old as, well, 1991.  So not that old really.  But “Beauty and the Beast”  was one of the Oscar winning tunes highlighted here at Le Blog this week.  With the 89th annual Academy Awards just a week away, readers were bombarded with must-read articles.  There’s been so much good stuff, even I haven’t been able to keep up with it all.  If you want to catch up over your President’s Day weekend, here’s your weekly recap.

Weekly Recap: Batman’s Stuck in a Rut, but Readers Enjoy Boogie Nights


Even when he’s sporting a pirate look, Robert Wagner is one handsome fellow.  He may have played a character named Number 2 in Austin Powers (appropriately enough the 2nd place finisher in our Movies of 1997 bracket game), but he’s #1 in our hearts.  Or something.  You try introducing a weekly recap with a picture of Robert Wagner.  It’s not as easy as it looks.  Before we all break out in evil laughter, let’s look back at the past week at Le Blog.

Weekly Recap: Daffy Does Disney, Damon Wayans Gets Tamed and Movies Changed Lives


There’s a lot that goes on here at Le Blog.  Sometimes, readers tell me that they miss things.  That got me to thinking about some things I can do to make it easier for readers to keep up.  As we start off the new year, I thought I would try posting a weekly recap to put everything in one place for readers who don’t check in on a daily basis.
