    by Shawn Zipay
    Microsoft heard the complaints and backtracked on their plans.

    by Major 0

    In 1996, Warner Bros. created a precedent by partnering with a sports hero and adapting the real-life athlete into a world of semi-animated cinema. Space Jam told the fictional account of what happened to Bull’s player Michael Jordan in his brief retirement.
