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!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

Upcoming Live-Action Disney Films in 2018

I shall be taking a break on this blog for the rest of the year and will resume posting my reviews in January 2018. Until then, I decided to do something similar to what I do on my other blog, The Animation Commendation, wherein I give you a guys a look at the live-action Disney films set to be theatrically released next year!

But, keep in mind that these are only the live-action films that I will review for this blog, hence there will be no Star Wars or Marvel Studios-related films on this list. Also keep in mind that these dates are liable to change at any time! Enjoy!

Alright, how many people were honestly asking for a fifth one of these?

I doubt it was that many!

I guess I don’t need to introduce this franchise as everyone in the world pretty much knows about it! But, I never imagined that we would be getting a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film! Is it good like the first film, ok like the second, or more along the lines of the third and fourth? Let’s take a look at Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales!

Jack Sparrow is back in this third installment of the beloved franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean. This film was actually filmed alongside the second one and follows it nigh immediately. So, I recommend for you to read my Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest review first before reading this one (if you haven’t done so already), because I’m not going to go over things that I’ve already gone over in that review.

With that out of the way, let’s take a look at Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End!

With the success of the first film, it wasn’t long before a sequel to “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” was made. The film was a huge box-office hit, grossing over a billion dollars worldwide. Is it as good as the first? No.

"I mean...dudette."

This film suffers from an incredibly complicated combination of plots as well as a very long running time. Yet, I still have to review it. Here’s the review of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”.

Well, the time has come to review one of the most beloved live-action Disney films of all time. This is a film that revolutionized live-action Disney films as we know it. This is a film that revolutionized its genre as we know it. You can probably argue that this film revolutionized cinema as we know it. 

Lady lovers of Johnny Depp, keep your hearts in check for we are about to embark on a ride through another pirate-related film. Sit back and enjoy the review of “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”.
