I’m going to do two blogs today mostly because I missed last week’s deadline. Here’s the first one.
A few weeks ago, I decided to take another look at a Disney movie that doesn’t have the best reputation. I ended up liking the movie a lot more than I remembered liking it before. As such, I decided to do the same thing this week. Pocahontas is infamous as being one of the worst movies of the Disney Renaissance. People call it boring and extremely inaccurate to history. Still, it’s Disney. Would they really shill out a product that wasn’t at the very least entertaining to watch? I decided to find out if this movie was worth its weight in gold or if it deserves a savage beating. Let’s look at Pocahontas.
Why am I reviewing an old-ish Disney movie? Because I want to and I can.
Disney definitely does not have a spotless record when it comes to their movies. They have some rather significant blemishes on their name, like Home on the Range. But one film that people seem to give some hate to is the Hunchback of Notre Dame. And, honestly, I never understood the extreme emotions against this film. Sure, I never thought it would make my Top 10 Disney movies list, but I didn’t think it was a spit in the face of the audience either. Still, I haven’t seen the movie in at least over a decade. Have my thoughts changed? Is this movie truly deplorable? Let’s find out. This is Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
I’ve been really obsessed with Cracked.com lately, specifically their series After Hours. For those who haven’t seen, four friends sit around at table nitpicking popular culture to hell and back. So, I’ve been in the mood to do the same. And what better franchise to cut to ribbons than the all-powerful kingdom of the mouse.
There have been a number of memorable Disney villains throughout the years. They have great designs, over-the-top personalities, a bumbling henchman or two. The villains are the best parts of Disney movies. But do they always have the best laid plans? You’d be surprised how quickly some of these plots fall apart the more you poke at them. So, I’m here to talk about 4 Disney villains whose plans were bullshit. I’m not disputing their evil-ness or anything like that. I’m just saying that these four plans are stupid and pointless. Here they are in no particular order.
Brace yourselves! Longer than normal post ahead! Mostly because I’m passionate about this subject and I’m making up for lost time this week.
As I approach the exact middle of my 20s, I find there is still one constant in my mind since I was a kid: I love cartoons. When I was younger, I just thought the pictures were cool and the stories were fine. As an adult, I find their artistry and story-telling can be phenomenally well done. Sure, there are some stinkers here and there, but isn’t that the case with every genre of TV show? Since I love cartoons so much and have quite a bit of experience watching them, I’ve decided to compile my first list of the new year! These are My Top 10 Favorite Cartoons of All Time! (Note: List is subject to change in the future. Tastes change, people change, new cartoons get made, etc. I may wish to change my list at some point in the unknowable future. This list reflects my mindset during the present, in my mid-20s.)
It’s Halloween Specials Week here on my blog! Thus far, I’ve only talked about decent to great Halloween specials. However, sometimes it’s good to look at the bad along with the good. Seeing something bad helps you appreciate the good all the more. Yeah, you can already guess what I thought of this episode. It’s A Hero for Halloween, the Proud Family Halloween special.
Here’s yet another blog in my Halloween Specials Week. When are you too old for Halloween? Never, is what I say. If it was socially acceptable, I’d still be going out for Trick-or-Treating even at 23. But society does play a big factor in this. Eventually, everyone thinks you’re too old to collect candy. Today’s episode revolves around one character thinking he’s crossed that age line at 12. It’s the Summerween episode of Gravity Falls. Continue reading →
