Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, by Albert W. Vogt III

A startling revelation came about yesterday as I wrote my review of Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015): they have announced a Hotel Transylvania 4. Oh . . . no. Here I was thinking my viewing of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) last night would finally end this particular Adam Sandler nightmare. But, no, there is… Read more “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, by Albert W. Vogt III”

Hotel Transylvania 2, by Albert W. Vogt III

Okay, here is the review of Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015). Hotel Transylvania 2 picks up pretty much where Hotel Transylvania (2012) concluded. Dracula’s (voiced by Adam Sandler) daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) is getting married to the idiot human backpacker Jonathan (Andy Samberg) who haphazardly stumbled upon the title resort in the last film. In yet… Read more “Hotel Transylvania 2, by Albert W. Vogt III”

The Sword in the Stone, by Albert W. Vogt III

Do you remember VHS tapes? Disney always had distinctive containers that encased their films. They were these white, plastic, folding contraptions as opposed to the run-of-the-mill thin cardboard sleeves. Opening them always came with the creak of flexing synthetics, but signaled the magic therein. My family had two of these treasures, one for me and… Read more “The Sword in the Stone, by Albert W.

Mulan (2020), by Cameron J. Czaja

After watching the CGI remake of The Lion King (2019), Aladdin (2019), and Dumbo (2019) last year I’ve come to the conclusion that Disney remakes are inevitable and I just have to just accept them. Despite all that, one Disney live action remake that I was intrigued about was the live action Mulan because of the potential it had. However because of COVID-19,… Read more “Mulan (2020), by Cameron J. Czaja”

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, by Cameron J. Czaja

To follow up my review for The Spongebob Squarepants Movie (2004), I shall now do a review for the standalone sequel The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015). Unlike the first film, I had been more aware of film criticism and went into this one ready to critique it. Part of me, however, had a good… Read more “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, by Cameron J. Czaja”

Treasure Planet, by Cameron J. Czaja

Now that I covered Atlantis: The Lost Empire, I shall now follow up that review with another Disney animated film with similar themes: Treasure Planet. I’m sure most of you have read Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale Treasure Island before, right? Well this is almost that same story but with a science-fiction twist that I thought was… Read more “Treasure Planet, by Cameron J. Czaja”

Dora and the Lost City of Gold, by Albert W. Vogt III

Dora and the Lost City of Gold is about the title character, Dora (Isabella Moner), a socially inept teenager with deadbeat parents who seemed content to let their only child be raised by a monkey. Along the way, mom (Elena, played by Eva Longoria) and dad (Cole, played by Michael Peña) wander into the jungle… Read more “Dora and the Lost City of Gold, by Albert W. Vogt III”

Toy Story 4

Before I begin, let me get a disclaimer out of the way: I have not seen Toy Story 1, Toy Story 2, or Toy Story 3. Actually, you could probably name a Disney movie and I have not seen it. I do not typically go in for that sort of thing. But I have a… Read more “Toy Story 4”

Missing Link

Movies that want to take themselves seriously try not to schedule their releases when there is a competitor involved. Sometimes this involves other reasons like the need for reshoots or world events causing them to make other plans. More often, though, it is because a movie wants to maximize its profits and another big time… Read more “Missing Link”
