Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon” (2021) Review

IMAGE: Disney, Wikipedia.org Should you put your trust in this film? PLOT - The beginning of the film shows great promise, with a little bit of self-awareness and modernity. It quickly falls apart, however, once the main journey starts. The film falls into a formula of collecting gems in different towns that feel like they … Continue reading Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon” (2021) Review

Disney’s “Frozen II” (2019) Review

IMAGE: Disney, Wikipedia.org Showing Yourself Up. PLOT - The plot of this film is actually quite hard to describe. The film plays out like a series of events rather than a cohesive whole, and probably would have worked better as a limited series. There is a lot of world building here, more than the film … Continue reading Disney’s “Frozen II” (2019) Review

Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” (2018) Review

IMAGE: Disney, Wikipedia.org He's gonna wreck it, all right... PLOT -  One of the slower plots in the Canon, Ralph Breaks the Internet is also a betrayal of its characters. The start of the film has the characters searching for something to do out of boredom, and entering the internet.

Disney’s “Zootopia” (2016) Review

IMAGE: Disney, Wikipedia.org Predator Lives Matter. PLOT -  Somewhat new to Disney is the police procedural, and they nail it. It's kid-friendly, yet suitable for mature audiences.

The action scenes, … Continue reading Disney’s “Zootopia” (2016) Review

Disney’s “Big Hero 6” (2014) Review

Image: Disney, Wikipedia.org A film with hugs, heart, and heroes. PLOT -  The plot is a pastiche of superhero films and comics, old and new. There's death, betrayal, plot twists, and secret identities galore. While the film is somewhat cliched, predictable, and 'tropey' at points, it's actually broken down and given a second life. In … Continue reading Disney’s “Big Hero 6” (2014) Review

Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph” (2012) Review

Image: Disney, Wikipedia.org It's wrecked, all right... PLOT -  The first act is a slog. It's very dense with exposition and jargon, getting those unfamiliar with video games familiarized. 'Show, don't tell' comes to mind, and the film would be a lot tighter if there was less exposition and more action. The motives behind characters' … Continue reading Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph” (2012) Review

Disney’s “Winnie the Pooh” (2011) Review

Image: Disney, Wikipedia.org Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood, the last 2D Disney film plays... PLOT - The plot is comprised of several short stories, connected better than the previous film. This film is bookended by the same story: the quest for Eeyore's tail. This is resolved in a humorous way, as is Pooh tradition. … Continue reading Disney’s “Winnie the Pooh” (2011) Review
