The Journey Begins

Hello!  My name’s Cali and I’ll be your guide during  this magical journey into Disney movies!  It’s the perfect project for me because I love Disney movies!

I’ve always prided myself on having seen every single Disney animated feature from Snow White to Ralph Breaks the Internet.  But recently, I’ve been thinking… I haven’t seen most of their other input!  So, I’ve made it my mission to go down the list of their Wikipedia page and do just that.  But don’t worry- I fully intend on including the animated ones, too!

I’ll be analyzing each film as I watch them and giving my honest opinions of their cinematography, music, acting, and writing.  I’ll also try to share a little bit of history of each film, doing a little bit of research on each.  Fair warning, though: I’m not the kind of girl to hold back for the sake of being “professional”.   If I like something, I’m going to fangirl hard, and if I don’t, expect a whole lot of sass.

So, is everyone ready?  Great!  Because it’s show time!  Ready when you are, CB!

THE FIRST REVIEW || DISCORD SERVER

Monkeys, Go Home! (1967)

Remember that time Walt denounced a bunch of his artists to the House Un-American Activities Committee, way back in 1940? Well, he carried that anti-Communist sentiment right until the very end. Oh, sure, they don’t come out and say it, but come on. It’s all about the joys of profiting off cheap labor. Aaaand I’m going to stop that train of thought right there. You fill in the blanks.

Follow Me, Boys (1966)

This was a very personal project for Walt Disney. He was a Boy Scout himself as a child, albeit briefly, and the Scouts awarded him the prestigious Silver Buffalo award for his contributions to childhoods everywhere. Follow Me, Boys! was released on December 1, 1966. Two weeks later, Walt Disney would sadly pass away from lung cancer. Will the final movie released during his lifetime be a fitting farewell to his genius? Well…..

The Fighting Prince of Donegal (1966)

Weirdly enough, I’m actually excited for this one. Historical dramas haven’t exactly been Disney’s forte, but man, at this point I’ll take another Sword and the Rose over another Lt. Robin Crusoe any day of the week. Plus, I like the whole medieval aesthetic. So off we go, back to the rolling hills of Ireland for a little Dungeons and Dragons with a lot less dragons!

Lt. Robin Crusoe, U.S.N.

I haven’t even started yet and I feel like I’ll have to permanently move to Adventureland to feel better about this whole aesthetic. You know you’re in trouble when a guy decides he gets to name a full-grown woman. And what is with the ’60s and chimps?

The Ugly Dachshund (1966)

Contrary to everything we know about old Walt, we’ve had a lot of really good cat movies lately. However, it’s been a minute since we’ve had a great dog movie. Will today be the day, or has the studio gone to the dogs?

That Darn Cat! (1965)

It’s out with the old and in with the new. One old friend leaves us while a new friend comes in for the long haul. Man, all the old standbys are leaving us this year, aren’t they?

The Monkey’s Uncle (1965)

Saying goodbye to Tommy Kirk and Annette Funicello is like saying goodbye to old friends. Except as good as they are as actors/people, I haven’t liked many of their movies. Some, but not many. So it’s kind of like saying goodbye to friends who are cool sometimes but only in small doses. This simile fell apart really fast. Moving on.

Those Calloways (1965)

So many beautiful animals call this planet home. If you could dedicate your life to preserving and protecting one species, which would it be? Would it be the graceful turtles that flap through the sea? Would it be the majestic lion roaring across the savannah? One thing’s for sure, it’s probably not the goose.

Emil and the Detectives (1964)

We’re in the middle of a sweet spot when it comes to the Disney live-action films! I loved Thomasina, I liked Moon-Spinners, and of course we had Mary Poppins. That’s three good live-action films in a row! A new record! Can we make it four?
