You’d think a film about a family taking a vacation to Europe would be an interesting film to watch. If this were the film in question, you’d be wrong. Nevertheless, we must go through with it. Here’s my review of the James Neilson-directed Bon Voyage!.

There’s not much to say in terms of an introduction other than this was the first time I saw this film. I had known about its existence for years though. Am I glad I finally saw it? Well, here’s my review of The Misadventures of Merlin Jones!

The Absent-Minded Professor (1961)

Before I get into the review, I firstly wanna apologize for how late this review is! I ran late on editing it.

Secondly, I wanna point out that this film was one of the few films that Disney made in black-and-white. However, it was later colorized and I happened to watch the colorized version. I would have preferred to see the original black-and-white version, but this was the copy that I got my hand on. So without further ado, let’s take a look at The Absent-Minded Professor!

On October 6, 2015, we lost another live-action Disney legend, Kevin Corcoran.

Gonna miss you, kid!

Known best for his childhood appearances in Disney films, the actor was 66 years old when he passed away. To pay tribute to him like I did for Dean Jones, I decided to review one of the films that he was in. I’ve already reviewed two of his films before (Pollyanna and Babes in Toyland), so today I’m doing a film that many find beloved: The Shaggy Dog. Do I find it beloved? Well, let’s find out!

When people think of live-action Disney musicals, films like Mary Poppins or Bedknobs and Broomsticks come to mind. But the first live-action musical film that Walt Disney made was the 1961 film, Babes in Toyland. Based on an operetta of the same name, this would be only the 2nd theatrical adaptation of the film (the other being with Laurel and Hardy) and the first to be shown in Technicolor.

Is it worth watching? Should we give a darn about this Toyland place? Well, let’s find out!
