Disney's animated classic, "Beauty and the Beast”, is back with Emma Watson as Belle, and Dan Stevens as the Beast. The story is beautifully done and adds another dimension to a timeless classic.
The Disney princess franchise hits the mark again with "Moana", the story of a chief's daughter (not a princess), Moana (Auli'i Cravalho), who takes an adventure on the sea with the company of a shape-shifting demigod, Maui (Dwayne Johnson), and an irritating but lovably dim witted rooster to save the world from complete ecological destruction (pretty standard, as Disney films go). Though the plot may drag a little, "Moana" is a heartfelt and exciting movie for all.
The plot of "McFarland, USA" brings nothing surprising or extraordinary to the table, not to mention that Kevin Costner is yet again playing the "clueless mentor searching for answers" role.
Disney's animated version of "Sleeping Beauty" ends like any other Disney fairy tale: the characters all live happily ever after. Well, almost all of them do. When it comes to the evil fairy Maleficent, viewers are happy to forget that she even existed.
Disney has done it again with another animation that enchants young and old alike. With lots of jokes, powerful songs, gorgeous animation and an adorable talking snowman, "Frozen" will melt any heart.
Just two years after the release of "Cars 2," Disney has gone right back to the idea of talking motorized vehicles with their new film "Planes”. "Planes" is just what you would expect from a kids film: An unlikely hero with dreams of glory comes onto the biggest stage of his life and somehow manages to shock the world. "Planes” follows the predictable kid's film script exactly and does not go above and beyond.
"Wreck-it Ralph" has a refreshingly unique story line that takes video games to a whole new level.
Three-dimensional (3D) stereoscopy has a reputation for being a gimmicky piece of technology that is hastily used in movies to make more money. With the surge in old films being released in 3D, filmmakers are encouraging the industry to value profits over fan loyalty. The recent re-release of "Star Wars Episode I: Phantom Menace" epitomizes this trend.
"Cars 2" does not live up to the standards that Pixar set for itself by producing cute, funny, and clever animated films that children and adults alike can enjoy.
