Mulan (2020)

I’m sure there were others at the time, but to me it very much feels like Mulan was the first high profile casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic. I mentioned in my March review of System Crasher that I had expected to be watching Disney’s big new remake on that weekend, but here we finally are…

Onward (2020)

Is it just me, or has this latest Pixar release surfaced with absolutely no fanfare whatsoever? When I say I had absolutely no idea what I was in for with Onward, I mean I hadn’t even seen a trailer, I’d barely seen a poster, and until I was physically at the cinema, I thought there…

Frozen II (2019)

It’s hard to believe that Frozen is nearly seven years old, simply because it feels like it never went away! From Let It Go to Elsa costumes to Olaf toys and everything in-between, the film became the kind of cultural phenomenon that Disney hadn’t experienced for a while, it’s almost as if audiences prefer new…

Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil (2019)

When Maleficent came out in 2014, it had the benefit of being one of the earlier of these new era Disney projects focused on either remaking or retelling old beloved properties. Whilst I didn’t really think much of the film as a whole, I enjoyed the different, comparatively darker approach to the Sleeping Beauty tale,…

The Lion King (2019)

Well, here we are again. Mere months after both Dumbo and Aladdin hit cinema screens across the world, Disney are showing no signs of slowing the cogs of their regurgitation machine. The third remake of a beloved childhood classic of any kind might feel a little over the top at this point, but I think…

Toy Story 4 (2019)

If this blog had existed in 2010, you would have no doubt come along to read how I thought Toy Story 3 was the perfect end to a pretty much perfect trilogy of Pixar movies that felt like they were specifically made with my generation in mind. Six years old with the first, ten years…

Aladdin (2019)

In my household growing up, Aladdin was a huge, huge deal. Being the older sister of a little brother, the Disney catalogue at that point had few films that could entertain us both in equal measure, and as a result the 1992 animated classic is probably the animated feature that I have seen most in…

Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

Well, here it is folks. My most anticipated film of the year, and the film that I was most afraid of! If you don’t already know, it’s no secret that Mary Poppins is one of my favourite movies of all time, perhaps even my very favourite. From the moment this sequel was announced, my thoughts…

Ralph Breaks The Internet (2018)

Here’s the thing. If Disney think they can get me excited for something other than Mary Poppins Returns for the rest of 2018, then they’ve got another thing coming. In fact, my thoughts have been so consumed with the sequel to my favourite film of ALL TIME that I barely remembered I had a date with…

The Nutcracker And The Four Realms (2018)

Well, Halloween has been and gone, so I guess that means in cinema terms that we have begun our slow and slippery decent in to the world of Christmas movies! If you’re anything like me, then you will have your set staple of festive films that reappear in heavy rotation year after year, but that…
