Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog” (2009) Review

Image: Disney, Wikipedia.org The Kiss of Life for Walt Disney Studios... PLOT -  The plot of this film returns to its classic roots, yet this is still another journey movie, getting from Point A to Point B. However, the character beats are more compelling than the previous offering (Bolt), having more characters spread throughout the … Continue reading Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog” (2009) Review

Disney’s “Bolt” (2008) Review

Image: Disney, Wikipedia.org Woof... PLOT -  The plot of Bolt is yet another Disney 'journey' movie, but also a 'separation' story and a 'finding your true purpose' story as well. We've seen these all before. The film tries to juggle these points, but as characters and motivations are introduced, plot points fall by the wayside … Continue reading Disney’s “Bolt” (2008) Review

Disney’s “Meet the Robinsons” (2007) Review

  IMAGE: Disney, Wikipedia.org PLOT -  A much more toned-down plot compared to the previous entries in the series, not going for super-serious or super-silly. Meet the Robinsons is remembered more fondly for its tonal balances and stronger plot with moments that hit right in the heart. For once, we're not watching a journey / travel … Continue reading Disney’s “Meet the Robinsons” (2007) Review

Disney’s “Home on the Range” (2004) Review

Image: Disney, Wikipedia Mooooooove Over, Traditional Hand-Drawn Animation! PLOT -  Standard. Rote. Trite. "We have to save the family farm from the evil cattle rustlers!" Ugh. This film is a slog. There's barely any rhyme or reason to the events happening, and the film comes to a grinding halt at times. Progression is made, sure, … Continue reading Disney’s “Home on the Range” (2004) Review

Disney’s “Treasure Planet” (2002) Review

Image: Disney, Wikipedia.org Set Space Sails for Adventure! PLOT -  The plot closely follows the Robert Louis Stevenson Treasure Planet novel and adds a science-fiction twist.
