Christopher Robin

We’ve seen the themes of Christopher Robin before in countless films about parents who just don’t have the time – or the soul – to share with their families. They’re breaking their backs at work, tasked with important and impossible things! Who has time for vacations and reading books to their children at bedtime? The […]

Alice Through The Looking Glass

The night before my six-year-old daughter Moira and I went to the screening of Alice Through the Looking Glass, we caught up on Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland from 2010, which was Moira’s birth year. Dark, torpid, and almost entirely unnecessary, Alice in Wonderland was one of those movies which focused more on the computer […]

The Jungle Book (2016)

From the second the lights go all the way down after the trailers are over and the theater’s “Feature Presentation” bumper has played, we’re brought into a world of nostalgia by Disney’s current logo having undergone a facelift. Well, it’s really a reverse-facelift; the 10-year-old, computer-animated, firework-laden Cinderella Castle opening has been entirely redone to […]
