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!

The Rocketeer (1991)

(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!)

Whilst Disney has been killing the box office via their Marvel superhero films in this recent decade, they have ventured into the superhero film genre in the past. Directed by Joe Johnston (Honey, I Shrunk the Kids), the 1991 film, The Rocketeer, is based on a comic book superhero of the same name created by Dave Stevens.

The film sadly wasn’t a box office success, so much so that Disney released the film internationally under their Touchstone Pictures banner to reach a wider audience. The film has since gained a cult following, but is it deserving of said cult following? Read my review of The Rocketeer to find out!

Sometimes I wonder if Hollywood will ever make a film solely dedicated to the sport of cricket? From a marketing standpoint, it would be a bad move since Americans are pretty ignorant about cricket.

Even though America has a national cricket team!

But also from a marketing standpoint, it would be a good move because the majority of the world knows and plays this sport. I feel what Hollywood would do is somewhat dive into a film that has the slightest relation to cricket and then make the film baseball-related. That brings us to Million Dollar Arm. Based on a true story, Million Dollar Arm tells the story of the first Indians to play in the MLB. Is it any good? Let’s find out!
