    It is every teenager's dream to find fame and fortune and the lucky few, such as Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, have used it as a launchpad to a successful career. Justin Bieber found infamy through Youtube, which he then turned into a successful pop career with the guidance of Usher. Miley Cyrus meanwhile took her fame from the hit show Hannah Montana and used that spotlight to build herself into a successful pop star in her own right. Teenage success stories like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus are not a new phenomenon, with teenage acts hitting the big time for years. However, these type of acts rarely seem to build on their success, and often disappear from the public eye or undergo a drastic change of direction, isolating the artist from what was previously their target audience. One of the main reasons for this is that their target audience has outgrown them. When you look at Justin Bieber's target audience for his music, they're generally young teens or pre-teens. Once they hit their late teens their musical tastes tend to change, and Bieber's music is not what they want to listen to. Another reason is that the artist themselves outgrow their musical style. Cheesy pop music is great when you're 16, but once Justin Bieber turns 20 will he still want to sing the same kind of songs? A prime example of this is Britney Spears, who started rebelling and singing rock songs rather than pop as she grew up. While Britney's career has remained relatively successful, other artists have struggled to maintain their success while changing their image. Macauley Culkin, star of the Home Alone movies, was very successful and had a huge fan base when starring in family movies, but soon outgrew these and has had limited success since. Hanson are another example of an act who have struggled to build any success since developing a more grown up image; their recent attempted comeback was less than successful, mainly because they appeared to have no target audience. Miley Cyrus has already begun to show her wild side and appears to be taking a similar career path to Britney Spears. Justin Bieber on the other hand is still making teen-friendly music, and will undoubtedly remain successful for the time being should he continue with this path. But what will happen when he hits 20? Will he become a rock star? Even a heavy metal act? Only time will tell, but history suggests that his teen-friendly style is unlikely to carry on forever.

    Walt Disney has brought some of the finest movies geared towards families throughout the years. Films the entire family can enjoy together without any fear of objectionable material popping up. Many of these films are personal favs mostly seen on video or DVD. Here is a list of ten of my all time fav Disney classics.Song of the South (1946)Adapted from the series of Uncle Remus tales by Joel Chandler Harris. The film is both live-action and animation. Amazingly this film has never been re-released since the 1980s, and continues to spark heated debate as to it’s' "appropriateness" for the 21st century, the film depicted America in a much different time. Rating (8 of 10)So Dear to My Heart (1948)So Dear to My Heart again combines live action and animation to tell the story of a young farm boy (Jeremiah) and his pet lamb (Danny). Danny turns out to be rather rambunctious, causing Jeremiah's grandmother to wish Jeremiah would get rid of it. Rating (7 of 10)Treasure Island ) (1950)Walt Disney, branching out from animated films to "live-action" and produced Treasure Island, based on Robert Louis Stevenson's 1881 adventure novel. Rating (6 of 10)Old Yeller ) (1957)Young Tommy Coates steps up to help his mother take care of their ranch and their family when his father leaves to drive their cattle herd to market in Kansas. When a stray dog takes up residence at the Coates ranch, Tommy makes a friend for life. Old Yeller and Tommy battle snakes, raccoons, bears, and life and epitomize the phrase "man's best friend" in this timeless classic. Rating 8 of 10)The Shaggy Dog ) (1969)Through an ancient spell, a boy changes into a sheepdog and back again. It seems to happen at inopportune times and the spell can only be broken by an act of bravery. Fred Mac Murray stars. (Rating 6 of 10)Swiss Family Robinson ) (1960)The Robinson family is dealt a terrible blow when they find themselves shipwrecked on a deserted island. All is not lost as the family bands together to not only survive, but grow, flourish, and thrive in a spectacular house built in a tree. Rating (7 of 10)The Absent-Minded Professor (1961)The Absent-Minded Professor is a Disney movie about a character called Professor Braniard who invents a strange substance that accumulates energy when it strikes certain types of surfaces. He discovered it accidentally by reversing a sign in one of his equations. Professor Braniard then decides to name the substance "Flubber". Or Flying Rubber. Great fun Rating (7 of 10)That Darn Cat! ) (1965)Hayley Mills and Dean Jones are in for a treat in this purr-fect Disney family film filed with comedy, mystery, and adventure. When a young woman's Siamese D.C. (Darn Cat) turns up wearing a wristwatch as its collar, she figures out this is a tip-off for the ongoing case of an unsolved robbery and kidnapping. Hair-raising comedy continues as jealous boyfriends, nosy neighbors, and an allergic FBI agent try to crack this case. Rating (7 of 10)Bedknobs and Broomsticks ) (1971)Flying high atop a magical flying bed, orphans Carrie, Paul, and Charlie take on an incredible, mystical world alongside their house parent Miss Price. Rating (7 of 10)Never Cry Wolf ) (1983)Based on Farley Mowat's real life study of wolves in their natural habitat, Never Cry Wolf takes a look at the impact of wolf life on nature's ecosystem. Farley was hired to show how wolves were killing off the caribou herds in the Canadian tundra, however, what he learned proved the wolves might not be the enemy after all. Rating (8 of 10) A Must see.Many have been released in between these titles and many after but these are just a few of my much beloved Walt Disney films that I feel today’s kids are really missing out of.

    Actor Anton Yelchin has died at age 27 after a freak auto accident at his home, it seems that he was accidently pinned by his car after he exited it and it appears to have rolled back and pinned the young actor. Anton was a fan fav here in the early days of this fan site when he was starring in such films as the 2001 releases of “Along Came a Spider” as Dimitri Starodubov next to Morgan Freeman and alongside another giant in the field in Anthony Hopkins when he played Bobby Deerfield in the excellent “Hearts in Atlantis.” Born in Leningrad in the former Soviet Union, Yelchin and his family immigrated to the United States when he was just six months old. His parents were both star figure skaters. He began acting at an early age, starting his career off as a 9 year-old. The then child actor impressed critics and audiences with a series of prominent roles as in the mentioned films and more. Always admired this talented actor and grew up watching him and he was well on his way to the top, he will be seen next in the upcoming “Star Trek Beyond” where he has played the role of Chekov in the rebooted film series. Other completed films and in post-production includes “Rememory,” “We Don't Belong Here,” “Porto” and “Thoroughbred.” Sincerest condolences to Anton’s family and friends and we as fans are sadden by the loss of this talented young man.
