First Look: Into the Woods Trailer and Preview Images

I fondly remember when “Into the Woods” came out on Broadway, and though I’ve never seen it, it was always a favorite among my theatre-nerd pals and it does contain one of my very favorite songs, “Children Will Listen”. Now Disney is making it into a full-length feature film and …

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy’s Surprising Fit in the Marvel Universe

I had avoided most of the previews and trailers of Guardians of the Galaxy, other than a short trailer at last year’s D23 Expo out in Anaheim. Basically, what that trailer told me was that it was sci-fi, not your average superhero movie, and there was a raccoon and a …

Disney’s Maleficent Offers a Twist on Sleeping Beauty

Disneynature Bears: A Must-See Visual Treasure

I make it no secret that I am not a fan of animal movies. That’s not to say I don’t love movies with animals or nature in them, rather, I am not a fan of watching the “circle of life” in action. I can barely handle eliminating the errant spider …

From Arrrr to Zarina, The Pirate Fairy Is Packed With Pixie Dust!

I first heard about The Pirate Fairy at Disney’s D23 Expo back in August, and was treated to an appearance by stars Tom Hiddleston and Christina Hendricks. I really liked the premise, and looked forward to seeing it. So I was very excited to receive this dvd/BluRay to review. It …

Saving Mr. Banks Comes to Blu Ray and DVD

Saving Mr. Banks has warmed the hearts of most who have seen it in theatres, and now it’s available on Blu Ray and DVD. I had not previously written about Saving Mr. Banks, mostly because I had very mixed feelings about it. Taking away the idea that this was “based …

Frozen on Blu Ray and DVD March 18

There isn’t much to be said about Disney’s latest animated feature, Frozen that hasn’t already been said…except that you need to get it on Blu-Ray and DVD. Oh, wait, that’s probably already been said too! Well, if you are on the fence for some unknown reason, or for some other …
