REVIEW: Black Panther – the Movie We All Needed

Now, dear reader, we come to a bit of a difficult point. I am, as most of you know, a suburban, white, middle-aged (gah that’s the first time I’ve admitted that one), wife and mom. The emotions I felt and the thoughts I have been trying to organize regarding this film, left me saying, “who am I, to have an opinion on this? Who am I to have a say in the themes presented on the screen?

Something There That Wasn’t There Before: Beauty and the Beast 2017

Like many others, I will admit to being afflicted with a bit of “live-action overkill” when it comes to Disney animated classics being “reborn” with live actors, or in the case of Jungle Book, an actor and a lot of computer animation. Disney has waved its magic wand to varying …

Captain America: Civil War – Bonus Features on Blu-ray and DVD

The latest installment in the MCU, or Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America: Civil War does not disappoint with traditional Marvel action and storyline twists. While I am not a super Marvel nerd and knowledgable on all the comic backstories, I almost like it better that way, so I can be …

Jungle Book Swings onto DVD and Blu-ray

First Teaser Trailer for Disney Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur

At the last D23 Expo, we were treated to the announcements of quite a few DisneyPixar projects, including Inside Out, which I’ll be screening tonight with full review to come, Finding Dory (not so much as excited about that one but we’ll see), and The Good Dinosaur. The official synopsis …

REVIEW: Disney’s Live Action Cinderella Honors and Updates the Original Tale

I’ve discussed before on this very site, that I was not super into princesses growing up. Unlike those born 10 or so years after me, Disney princesses were not as…well, everywhere as they are now, and have been for the last 20 years. Prior to the Walt Disney Animation Studios …

NEW Tomorrowland Trailer Reveals Much More

If you are like me, you’ve been looking forward to this film when it was just a title – Tomorrowland. The name held so much promise and hope…getting to see sneak peeks at the Disney D23 Expo in 2013, was just enough excitement to make believers out of so many. …
