    The Rescuers


    For an action/adventure film, the whole thing feels kinda stagnant. It's also quiet, to the point of being unnervingly so. The quietness of The Rescuers is not in service to the characters but rather a result of a low budget. The film does have some decent moments, the setup is fine, the scene with the crocodiles chasing the leads is really fun and Evinrude is a really well realised character. Unfortunately, almost non of the best parts of the movie have much to do with the main characters or plot of the film.

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame


    One of the most compromised and uneven films in the Disney canon, but for every problem it has there's two or three great things. It pushes the boundaries on how dark an animated family film can really be... and then we have the gargoyles. A good chunk of the musical numbers feel expendable as well, just a way for the executives to shove in a chart-topping soundtrack, something they were really big on at this point of time.

  • Adaptation.



    A meta scene about how meta this film is wrapped in a meta movie that is sometimes, sometimes not aware that it is a filmic representation of both the script and the screenwriter who also just so happens to be the protagonist of the piece. Adaptation sometimes comes across as a little to cutesy for its own good, but to be honest, it's kind of a miracle that it's not like that it's entire runtime. Instead it's a rather sweet…
