The Year of Disney

Happy New Year, readers!

If you guys read the Blue Bayou post, I'm planning on reviewing all the Disney animated features. That's my plan and I'm sticking with it. So you're probably asking why on Earth I'm doing this. Well, I love the Disney films (well, most of them as you'll see). After all Disney is usually the first thing we're ever exposed to as kids, and it's really hard to avoid it once something like Disney has entered your life. Hell, it's practically family to us. Also, as an animator, you can't help but feel that these are more than movies. They're works of art! I suppose I could have just made a list of what were my favorites to see if anyone agrees, but I always feel like I have to express why it is I like/don't like the film, that way, it comes off stronger.

So here's how this is gonna work; once or twice a week, I'll watch a movie in order of thier release and give my two cents on it, as well as share a video of what I consider the best scene. (I'm not uploading the whole film, just a smidge of it) If you like or don't like anything I like or don't like, that's fine. Everyone has their own opinions and I have mine. That's part of why I made this blog. So maybe tomorrow or so, I'll get started on the reviews, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the Year of Disney.

Wow, you got a copy of Song of the South?

I have a digital copy of it. Somebody had the Japanese laserdisc ripped, so I found it and got it. But yeah, I'm doing a review on that too. Also look out for Mary Poppins, Enchanted, Roger Rabbit, and maybe Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

That date 1/4 would be the 107th birthday of the late Sterling "Winnie the Pooh,etc." Holloway, b.1905, Cedertown, Georgia, died November 23, 1992, California.

Really? That's pretty cool info. Thanks, Pokey. :)

Are you doing this in response to the Nostalgia Critic's videos of "Disneycember?" Of course, he was doing only the animated films and was trying to do them all in December (it was delayed due to his computer getting a bad virus) whereas you're taking the whole year to review the films. Then again, it could also be by sheer coincidence. Anyway, looking forward to your reviews (I already read your Snow White review before posting this so I know you're off to a good start).

Well, truth be told, Doug did inspire me to do this. The difference is that I'm doing them all as well as a few of the live action mixes like Song of the South and Mary Poppins. If I finish early, I may do the Pixar films as well. And remember, Doug has his opinions and I have mine. And thanks for the positive comment, RetroBrain. :)

Of course, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I love Doug's videos, and he's done a great job with the Disneycember videos. I'm sure yours are going to be just as great.

Thanks, man. I love Doug's stuff too. Not to ruin anything, but he and I share the same favorite Disney movie. ;)
