I watched LADY AND THE TRAMP for the 2nd time ever tonight. After this famous spaghetti shot, Lady and Tramp wander around in a park, and then we lap-dissolve to them waking up in the morning, cosily nestled against each other. Given the fact that at the end of the flick, Trusty the bloodhound is still wearing a leg cast after being injured by the overturned carriage bearing Tramp off to the dog pound, and Lady has already born her…
Whether you love animals or not - this Disney love story pulls on the heart strings and strikes a chord every time. With solid animation and a host of wonderful characters this Disney film is always a pleasure to watch and keeps up with the high standards of today. Some of the older Disney features are a little rough around the edges but this holds up just fine. It certainly is not the most detailed of plots but our journey…

This was never one of my favorite Disney films growing up, and it still isn't today. I don't think this one will ever be in the running for one of my favorite Disney films. It lacks that magic. It lacks good songs, fun characters, and the sense of wonder while watching.
I will never take…
I thought Peter Pan was a knob when I was little and I still do now. He is a grade A twat.
Sexist and racist, with annoying poshos at the centre, there's few things to really like about this. Tinkerbell is one, Smee and Hook are the other. The songs are dire and the whole thing is just dated and embarrassing.
The bit with the fairy dust ship at the end still looks beautiful though.
Its been years since i last saw this film and what surprised me most on this watch is how much horror is on show. The first scene sets the dark tone, a manic chase involving "The Bronze" (street slang for the police) and the Nightrider, a cop killing maniac or "a fuel injected suicide machine", that ends with a massive explosion. From there we see all see all sorts of horrific stuff from The Toecutter's gangs chase and torture of…
Shameful I know, but another Disney film I haven't seen before. And I really regret not seeing this earlier, I can definitely see this becoming a classic through my rewatches.
It had me hooked from beginning to end, and there's some really catchy songs here as well like 'The Colours Of The Wind'. I also like the funny moments from Meeko the raccoon.
A nice little Sunday film to sit back and relax to. That's why I have given this film 3 and a half * ENJOY !!
Ignoring the giant liberties it takes with history and the casting of Mel Gibson as John Smith, I’ve always had a soft spot for Disney’s Pocahontas. Naturally it isn’t a patch on the studio’s true greats, the ending is rushed, it lacks a memorable villain and it is too brisk for its own good, but it also gets a lot of things right.
For one thing it looks amazing. The character design and backgrounds are stunning, particularly in high definition,…
If someone had told me Dario Argento had made a great movie as late as 2006 I'd have probably laughed till I dropped.
Surprised? ... I nearly shit myself!
Not only did I nearly choke at the sight of Meat Loaf, but then to see a wonderfully peculiar John Saxon, I though all of my Horror Christmases had come at once.
Visually "above its station" for a TV Movie but still containing a signature Argento theme (for want of a…
Watching this movie for the first time in over 5 years has probably been the biggest nostalgia trip of my entire life. Thousands of childhood memories came racing back to me -- both good and bad. Every scene, every song bringing back long-forgotten memories from my past, consistently reminding me of a time when everything in life was simpler. Watching it again I found myself much more moved by what I was seeing than ever before. As a kid, it…
The (Shakespearean) quest for power, involving some usual evils of: murder, deceit, jealousy, manipulation, a lost childhood, chaotic autocratic rule...
Triumphed over by: friendship, love, eating bugs, an infectious ode to life theme song, and a hard knock to the head by a crazy-ass mandrill.
Colourful, vibrant animation. Endearing [both evil & good], well-voiced characters. Beautiful music. Wonderful dialogues. Fantastic storytelling. Unlimited rewatch value.
One of the greatest films ever made, The Lion King is the very pinnacle of Disney's Renaissance Era that didn't just mark a creative high for the legendary animation studio but remains their most impressive work to date. An astounding masterpiece for all ages that's perfectly balanced in the smallest of aspects & still hasn't aged a day, this is without a doubt the greatest Disney film of all time.
Set in the Pride Lands of Africa, The Lion King tells…
