Sorry readers, but I’ll have to postpone my next review for the following Monday, November 11th. I have some assignments and other work to get taken care of. See you then!
Walt Disney dabbled with live-action since early on in his career with the “Alice Comedies” from the 1920’s in which he put a real person into an animated world.
Even many of his early feature films were a mixture of animation and live-action such as “Song of the South”, “So Dear to my Heart”, “Victory Through Air Power”, etc.
But his first FULLY live-action film was released in 1950. It was a film about swashbuckling buccaneers and buried treasure…a tale of pirates that we all know and love.
I’m talking about the classic film based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel, “Treasure Island”. Let’s look at the film together, shall we?

I’m a guy who never understood the point of prom. Prom just seems like an extremely overrated event in high school that lasts for a few hours. Why is everyone so obsessed with it? Granted, I never went to a traditional high school, so I’ve never experience a prom personally, but I don’t believe that I missed out on anything.
So, as you can imagine, this movie was one that I was dreading to see! But, I decided to get it over with early so as to not further postpone the dread. Was I right in wanting to stay away from this film as much as possible? Did this film make me change my views on prom and recognize it as a wonderful experience? Let’s find out! Enjoy!

Today we’ll look at one of these classic ’70s Disney films in particular, “The Apple Dumpling Gang”.

Sigh…sometimes you have to review bad live-action Disney movies….and sometimes….you pray that you don’t have to review bad live-action Disney movies. And today’s film is an excellent example of a bad live-action Disney movie. Starring Robin Williams and John Travolta as lifelong pals, let’s take a look at “Old Dogs”.
