The Lion King Review

I may have said this before, but in my opinion the high-point of the Disney ‘live-action’ remakes has so far been The Jungle Book. It updated and refreshed a film that was long enough ago to warrant a fresh coat of paint with a stellar cast and a lovely new visual style. So, when the…

Aladdin Review

From then on they’ve rarely had a flop, the closest to less-than-stellar they’ve been is with the Cars franchise, and even that stands above most animated…
