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

The One and Only Genuine, Original, Family Band (1968)

Wow, this movie could not possibly have come up at a worse time. Did I think A Tiger Walks was awkward? Because hoo boy, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Site Updates!

I was totally very definitely not procrastinating on my next review, so you may notice a few little housekeeping things! For starters, I finally updated my contact information for the first time in like, a year. Now the links to find me personally on Discord or Tumblr will actually connect you to me unless I change my Discord name again and forget.

Secondly, and speaking of Tumblr, I made a Tumblr blog for the site! Reviews will obviously still be going up here, but since WordPress offers so few options for people to engage with my content outside of comments, I made a place where we can chat! I also honestly prefer Tumblr’s method of notifications to WordPress’s, so you can follow me there and never miss a post. It even contains a convenient little table of contents so you can skip to the films that interest you!

Next review will go up if I ever get my life together. I’m sorry I’m like this!

Blackbeard’s Ghost (1968)

I’m actually super stoked for this one, because while it’s the beginning of that weird period when Disney completely lost its footing without Walt, it’s got pirates! Pirates are cool! And Blackbeard’s something of a hometown hero (anti-hero… whatever) to me, so that’s even cooler. It can’t possibly be worse than the other time Disney tried to do Blackbeard, at any rate.

Review Delayed

Hey guys I’m sure you’ve noticed it’s been like a month since I did Charlie The Lonesome Cougar. I know I had at least one reviewer who was very anxious about Happiest Millionaire and I want to reassure everyone it is still 100% happening! But… I need a little time. Finding time to sit down and watch a nearly three hour movie during the holidays while working full time has not been easy. I’ve accomplished that part and work’s slow enough that I can write, but my head has not been in that kind of space for a couple weeks now. I got hit with a quadruple whammy of very bad family news so my desire to write or do much of anything has been lacking. I’m sorry to leave you hanging but I hope to be back soon.

Charlie, The Lonesome Cougar (1967)

The last few True Life Fantasies didn’t exactly get the blood pumping. I mean, I doubt this could possibly be as bad as Nikki, but my hopes still aren’t high. It’s not a good sign when even the studio doesn’t believe in a movie.

The Jungle Book 2 (2003)

Is there a better way to celebrate two years of my Disney journey than with a Disney sequel? Well…. yes. Probably a lot, actually. Still, there’s a silver lining! My favorite voice actor of all time is in here! Will he be enough to redeem this thing? Probably not!

The Jungle Book (1967)

The 1960’s have been full of lighthearted animal comedies in much the same way as the 1950’s were dominated by the same Western over and over again. This time around they’d try their hand at adapting their genre du jour into an animated feature. Whether this succeeds or not, it’s always nice to return to what Disney does best!

The Gnome-Mobile (1967)

It’s a Mary Poppins reunion! Same director! Same kids! Same genre! Same songwriters digging their way into your brain forever! But does it have the same charm? Well, let’s fine out by hopping into the Gnome-Mobile, the Gnome-Mobile, losing our minds in the Gnome-Mobile….

The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin (1967)

Stop the presses! It’s a Western that I’m actually semi-excited for! Sure, the reviews aren’t great, but I’m always a fan of cheese and the book was a lot of fun. Maybe this trip to Frontierland will actually be enjoyable!
