The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018)

(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!)

I have to admit that the Nutcracker story is one that I’m unfamiliar with. I’ve never read the short story, seen the ballet, or seen any other film adaptation of it. So this Disney film directed by Lasse Hallström (and Joe Johnston for a month of reshoots) is my introduction to the story. Is it a tale worth telling? Read on to find out!

The Rocketeer (1991)

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!

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)

Today’s review is due to the request of Amanda Sorrento, a friend and YouTuber, who adores Rick Moranis! Check out her YouTube channel here!

I remember Honey, I Shrunk the Kids being a popular family film that people talked about during the early ’90s. However, I don’t think that I’ve personally seen it before. The film was said to have been mostly praiseworthy for its special effects and noteworthy for being Joe Johnston’s directorial debut. The film went on to be a box office success resulting in a theatrical sequel, a direct-to-video sequel, a TV series, and a Disney park attraction.

Was I in love with this film as much as audiences seemed to be? Let’s find out! Here’s my review of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids!
