Wish : Movie Review

To celebrate the Mouse House’s 100th anniversary, Wish takes us back to the beginning: the origin story of how we “Wish Upon a Star” and all that came after. Even though it bears its own story, music, and mythology, Wish asks us to play a game of “Spot the Reference” through overt and subtle nods […]

Haunted Mansion : Movie Review

Fans of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland or Disney World will be well-satisfied with this new cinematic iteration of the famed theme park staple brought to life. Haunted Mansion is a charmer, with easily-digestible and smooth characters and characterizations propelling us through this ride. The other side of it is that it’s entirely formulaic, its machinations […]

The Little Mermaid (2023) : Movie Review

The Little Mermaid has always been both a good memory and problematic for me. It was a good memory because of the people I watched it with and the Howard Ashman/Alan Menken songs we wouldn’t stop singing for years. Problematic because, well, the film’s “change everything you are to get the boy” message isn’t exactly […]

Jungle Cruise (2021) – Movie Review

Right away, Jungle Cruise throws you off with an altered Magic Kingdom logo underscored with a repeated E-G-B-E-B-G note sequence which suddenly becomes all too familiar once more instrumentation is added. Then you find yourself wondering, “What the hell is Metallica’s ‘Nothing Else Matters’ doing as the musical score of a Disney flick?!” Everything about […]

Luca (2021) – Movie Review

Here we go again… the good ol’ “make ’em afraid, then watch ’em squirm” Disney movie. From The Little Mermaid onward (and kind of reversed with the original Pete’s Dragon), this theme is a mainstay in children’s programming and films. Yes, it’s a metaphor for growing up and into the world around us, but isn’t it a […]
