Alice Through the Looking Glass, Magical or Not?

Anytime Disney brings something to the big screen, we expect something magical, right?  Well one would think so, however when I recently went to see Alice Through the Looking Glass, I wasn't as enveloped by the magic as I had hoped to be. In all fairness I have never been much of a Tim Burton fan and while he didn't direct this Alice in Wonderland sequel, I still felt his presence in the … [Read more...]

The Jungle Book: Not What I Expected!

I hate to admit it, but The Jungle Book is the first Disney movie I have not been excited to see in theaters.  It was not one of my favorite Disney movies as a kid, so I guess I assumed I wouldn't enjoy this version either.  Boy was I completely wrong!  It was the best Disney movie I have seen lately, and that is saying a lot since I love Disney. I have my daughter to thank for persuading me to … [Read more...]

Family Night with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!

#TheFinestHours Movie by Disney Pendleton Ship

Why Would Disney Call the Movie The Finest Hours?

As I was in the theater watching The Finest Hours I couldn't help but think to myself, "Why did Disney title this movie this way?"  I mean if I was sent off in a small wooden boat (36 ft) on one of the stormiest and cold nights on a rescue mission that I would probably never return from, what would be so fine about that?  I'm going to go with absolutely nothing! All I could feel for the men … [Read more...]
