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

Napoleon and Samantha (1972)

A pet lion? Orphaned kids? A travelling circus? Hippies? I’ve read the summary for this movie six times and I still don’t feel like I’m prepared. At least it’s different? Maybe? Hopefully?

Now You See Him, Now You Don’t (1972)

So, your brain has gained and lost the processing power of a computer. Where do you go from there? Apparently, if you’re Dexter Reilly, you turn invisible. As you do.

The Biscuit Eater (1972)

If this movie has nothing else going for it, the dog is adorable. Hopefully, this movie has something else going for it, but the dog’s still adorable. I do love adorable dogs. The preview photo on Disney+ has me slightly worried but there’s no outdated cultural depiction warning. Dare I hope we’ve made progress?

Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971)

What do you get when you take a magical caretaker, some adorable children, and David Tomlinson, give them just a touch of magic, and plop them into London? Well, what do you get when you do it again?

The Million Dollar Duck (1971)

In his entire thirty year career, legendary film critic Gene Siskel only walked out on three films. This was the first one. How bad does a movie have to be for Gene Siskel to hate it that much? We’re about to find out.

Scandalous John (1971)

What do you get when you cross the director of The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes with the writer/producer of Mary Poppins? Apparently, you get yet another Western. Why are there so many of these? And why does this one have a Mexican caricature on the cover? And just… why?

The Barefoot Executive (1971)

Aaand we’re back to the gimmick comedies. Chimps were popular throughout the ’60s. People liked chimps. Walt made several movies with chimps. Clearly, the key to making a good, successful movie is chimps. The studio’s desperation is showing something awful now, isn’t it?

The Aristocats (1970)

Bonjour mes amis! Throughout this project I’ve been looking at the animated features as pleasant little islands of excitement in a sea of obscure live action films. Some islands are more exciting than others, but hey, every animated feature is somebody’s favorite.

The Wild Country (1970)

My entire soul cringes into my body when I see the words “American frontier” in an IMDB summary. I can’t help it. It just happens. It’s like a cat with a spray bottle. Wait, nope, cats are the next movie. Either way, send help.

The Boatniks (1970)

It’s comedy time again! And this time it’s based on… a slang term that had fallen out of fashion a decade earlier. Cool. Good to know Disney’s still hip and cool with the kids. But will the movie itself sink or swim?
