In this episode, we take nearly one hour to look at the beloved live-action/animation hybrid Who Framed Roger Rabbit! We'll cover everything from the inception of the original novel, to the years it took to get to the big screen, the century-old techniques used to bring the story to life, and the film's expansive 2-disc DVD set.
It's the Oscar-nominated short film that played in front of Wreck-It Ralph, where Disney discovers a new and innovative way to make traditional animation: with computers.
Nicolas Cage is the sorcerer and Jay Baruchel is the apprentice in a feature-length adaptation of that one segment from Fantasia. Watch as Disney screws up a franchise based on something that only lasts a few minutes. That never always happens!
Joey meets up with sports movie reviewer Iannone to watch The Greatest Game Ever Played, starring Shia LaBeouf as Francis Ouimet, who in 1913 became the first amateur golfer to ever win the U.S. Open.
Sofie reviews the Pixar film Brave, and by popular demand, she's doing this review entirely in her native language (Danish) with English subtitles!
The Blockbuster Chick is taking part in another Red Ribbon Reviewers Month by looking at Christmas specials! She's starting things off with a look at the Disney classic Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too! Enjoy!
We made it, folks! Sofie's final Requested Review! Unfortunately, we end things on something of a dud. She reviews the mostly forgotten The Black Hole, Disney's first attempt at trying to cash in on the success of Star Wars.
NOTE: This review is in Spanish with English subtitles. This time around, the main leads have kids, and they're more annoying than ever, which isn't helped by a ridiculous plot that has nothing to do with them at all. At least the movie still features George Lopez's voice... Wait, why is that a good thing, again?
We dig into Joshua's Movie Madhouse archives (back when it was known as Anarchy at the Movies) for Disney's underwhelming adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel that inspired countless sci-fi adventure films, John Carter, starring Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins.
It's another Requested Review! This time, Sofie reviews The Muppets, the 2011 movie starring Jason Segel, Amy Adams... some kind of lizard-thing called Kermit, and several other weirdos.
Due to the recent hurricane, Joey presents a shorter review of a recent movie. The things he does for you people! Disney's latest flick Wreck-It Ralph features good animation, licensed characters, and candy puns. Lots of candy puns.
Joey finds out if this is really Disney's worst animated film! With a reputation of being made when Disney was at its lowest point, The Black Cauldron is a fantasy adventure with obnoxious characters, cop-out endings, and archetypes we've seen done to death.
Dr. O'Boogie dares to follow up his legendary recap of High School Musical, the Disney Channel Original Movie where Zac What's-his-face and Vanessa Something-or-other joined forces to save their school from being torn down, or something. Look, it's been four years since that recap. Cut him some slack, okay?
A chihuahua named Chloe (voiced by Drew Barrymore) gets dog-napped in Mexico in this Disney film about talking dogs that somehow attracted a decent cast, even though none of them can do much to save this movie.
Watch as Joey has a hard time distinguishing this movie from Pixar's latest movie (and big disappointment) Brave. Both have main characters that transform into bears and need to go on journeys of self-enlightenment, or some bull crap like that. Oh, but this one has two Canadian bull moose, with one played by Rick Moranis, which is a clever bit of casting, eehhh?
Flash back to when Lindsay Lohan wasn't a washed-up 26 year old, with a Disney Channel Original Movie where she plays Lexy Gold, who despite the name, is not a stripper. Instead, she's a prep school fashion queen who solves a mystery with the help of best friend Brenda Song.
Sofie goes down the rabbit hole for Alice in Wonderland, another visually impressive yet incoherent mess from Tim Burton, starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice. Watch and wonder how a movie this mediocre made a billion damn dollars.
Shia LaBeouf is teenager Stanley Yelnats (geddit?), who's falsely accused of a crime and sentenced to a concentration camp juvenile detention camp where the kids are forced to dig holes each day. Meanwhile, in flashback, we learn how Stanley's entire family was cursed by Eartha Kitt, and how Patricia Arquette was a notorious bandit back in the 1800s.
It's Joey's hate-filled review of The Return of Jafar, a lazy, badly animated cash-in on Aladdin, and the first (and probably worst) Disney direct-to-video sequel!
In this episode of Stuff You Like, Sursum Ursa decries the marketing machine of the Evil Empire (AKA Disney), and their ongoing efforts to sell a crapload of glittery pink and purple merchandise to impressionable little girls by convincing them to want nothing more than to be princesses like Aurora and Ariel.
