The Princess Diaries (2001)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! You can find a link to it at the top left-hand corner of this blog. Thanks!)

When this film was released, it was a massive hit, not just commercially, but also in the hearts of the people. Based on a series of books by Meg Cabot, the film was so beloved that it even spawned a sequel in 2004. But, this was a film that I hadn’t seen before and had it not been for this blog, I probably never would have.

So did I think that The Princess Diaries is as good a film as everyone makes it out to be? Or will this turn out to be another Hocus Pocus? Read on to find out!

Should I Review Disney+ Original Movies?

With Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, soon to be launched, we will also be getting many original films debuting there rather than in theaters. As you know, I only am reviewing the theatrical live-action films for this blog, hence no Disney Channel TV films or direct-to-video films.

So do you think I should treat these upcoming Disney+ films like theatrical films and review them for this blog? Or should I treat them like Disney Channel TV films and disqualify them from being reviewed here?

Dumbo (2019)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! You can find a link to it at the top left-hand corner of this blog. Thanks!)

When the Disney live-action remakes were being announced like hotcakes, one of the worst ideas we heard was the planned remake of Dumbo! Surely a film about a flying elephant didn’t need to be remade as live-action! And to top it all off, exactly how good could the story be if it was written by the same person who wrote Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Transformers: Age of Extinction?

“Ever seen a dinobot fly?”

Audiences’ attitudes towards the film were apparent when the film grossed $353 million against a $170 million budget. Is the film really not that special? Or was I able to discover something that everyone else missed? Read on for my review of Tim Burton’s Dumbo!
