Disney’s Robin Hood at 45

Disney’s Robin Hood holds up quite well as the animated classic celebrates 45 years since hitting the big screen in 1973.  It’s not a perfect film by any means as the film has its faults.  In the time since it’s release, we’ve seen a number of incarnations of the hooded Sherwood Forest outlaw.  This includes another film here in the next few weeks. Disney modeled their version of Robin Hood after Reynard the fox as they…

Aladdin kicks off Tuesdays with Robin

While Aladdin holds up as a beautifully animated motion picture with awesome songs, there’s a major flaw in casting non-Persians. Fresh off of The Little Mermaid, directors Ron Clements and John Musker went to work on Aladdin.  Walt Disney Animation Studios had offered the pair a choice between Swan Lake, Aladdin, and some film about lions in the jungle but they were like, “Who would want to see that?”  The latter of which went on…

The Incredibles 2 May Be The Best Pixar Sequel

Taking place almost immediately after the first film, The Incredibles 2 may just be the best Pixar sequel ever. When The Incredibles first came out in November 2004, the superhero genre was not as saturated as it is now.  To bring the family of superheroes back some fourteen years later meant that writer-director Brad Bird had to deliver, what with the current market being what it is.  This is a good problem to have.  It…

Peter Pan (1953): Second Star To The Right…

While the animated classic, Peter Pan, may still hold up some 65 years later, it’s not without its flaws.  There have been many editions of Sir J.M. Barrie’s classic play over the years.  This particular version is the one that’s quite popular, probably because of the film having been made by Disney The introduction to the Darling family has quite a bit of slapstick moments including George Darling (Hans Conried, in a double role).  George…

Tribeca 2018: Howard – A Nostalgic Documentary

Howard is a long-overdue documentary that tells the story of the late songwriter/composer Howard Ashman, who passed away as a result of AIDS in March 1991. To those who grew up in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Ashman’s music played a large role in our cinematic upbringing.  Ashman and Alan Menken teamed up for The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast.  Make no mistake about it, these films simply would not be…

Lady and the Tramp: Walt Disney Signature Collection

The 1955 animated classic, Lady and the Tramp, has become only the sixth film to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection. There were only a handful of animated classics to be released by Walt Disney in the 1950s but Lady and the Tramp is, without a doubt, the best love story released by Disney in the 1950s.  First released in June 1955, the film would later be released in 1962, 1972, 1980, and 1986.  Based on Happy…
