Gus (1976)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! Thanks!)

While many American football fans were watching Super Bowl LV on February 7, 2021, some people, including myself, were watching the 1976 Disney film, Gus instead (although my watching it that weekend was purely coincidental). After all, it does center around American football…basically. How good is this Vincent McEveety-directed film? Read on to find out!

Lady and the Tramp (2019)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! Thanks!)

When Disney+ launched in 2019, everyone was excited to finally have the entire Disney library at their fingertips. But like any good streaming service, Disney+ wouldn’t feature only existing content; it would be debuting original content. One of the first two original films debuting on Disney+ was the live-action remake of the animated 1955 Disney Canon film, Lady and the Tramp. Was this remake a good film to christen Disney+ with?

What do you get when you get Vincent McEveety’s brother to direct a film, Joss Whedon’s grandfather to write a film, and John Wayne’s son to star in a film? You get The Bears and I. Directed by Bernard McEveety, written by John Whedon, and starring Patrick Wayne, The Bears and I is one of those Disney films of the 1970s that isn’t a household name. Should it be though?

Black Beauty (2020)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! Thanks!)

In 1877, Anna Sewell published her only novel, Black Beauty: His Grooms and Companions, the Autobiography of a Horse. The novel instantly became a hit and eventually became a classic in children’s literature (although it wasn’t intended to be a children’s novel). The novel would spawn multiple film adaptations with the most recent one being the 2020 Ashley Avis-directed film that debuted on Disney+. Is it a classic just like the novel it’s based on?

One Magic Christmas (1985)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! Thanks!)

I am unclear as to whether this film was produced by Walt Disney Pictures or merely distributed by them. I’m just gonna assume that they did produce or at least co-produce the film.

There have been multiple Christmas-related projects from Disney over the years. Some are memorable classics while others…not so much. Which category does the Phillip Borsos-directed One Magic Christmas fall into? Read on to find out!
