One of Mark Twain’s novels, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, has been adapted as Disney films three times. Today, we take a look at the first of these adaptations, the 1979 film, Unidentified Flying Oddball aka The Spaceman and King Arthur aka A Spaceman in King Arthur’s Court.

So, funny story: this was supposed to be the first movie I reviewed on this site due to somebody requesting it, rather than me choosing it all on my own. I was under the impression that a commenter by the name of “act” had suggested this movie for me to review, so I finally got around to obtaining this film (he suggested this back in October 2014), watching it, and reviewing it.

But, as I was editing this review, I went back to the original comment posted by act and realized that I had made a mistake. He didn’t suggest this movie; he wanted me to review a movie called No Deposit, No Return!

How could I have made the mistake? Maybe because they’re both Disney films from the 70s, both have titles that are around four words long, and both feature actors Don Knotts, Darren McGavin, and John Williams? It’s possible. Maybe I just misread the original comment? That’s possible too.

All in all, I’d like to apologize to act if you’re reading this and I’ll do my best to get to reviewing No Deposit, No Return as soon as possible! I appreciate your patience.

In the meantime, we might as well go through Hot Lead and Cold Feet together now since I have the review prepared already.

With Disney’s onslaught of live-action remakes of their previous films comes the announcement of a remake of their 1977 film, Pete’s Dragon. While the original was a musical, the remake is set to be a regular film with stars such as Bryce Dallas Howard and Robert Redford. The film is set to be released next year, so while we await it, it seems proper to review the original film first.

So, let’s sit back and take a look at this film and see if Pete’s Dragon is any good and worthy to be remade or if it’s not good at all, hence worthy of being remade.

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
