“Let’s get down to business.” And with that edict, Disney’s rendition of a Chinese legend gives us one of the best stories of female empowerment from the 1990s with “Mulan.” The film tells the tale of Fa Mulan, a girl who is thought to be bringing shame on her family because she doesn’t seem to […]

The son of Zeus is turned into a human and must find a way to be a hero so that he can once again become immortal and return home to Mount Olympus in “Hercules.” Hercules is raised by a couple in ancient Greece, finds Philoctetes to learn how to be a hero, fights Hades and […]

We’re back with another Disney+ battle and this week it’s a battle of the cats we compare “The Aristocats” and “The Lion King” to see which is the better film. “The Aristocats” marks the beginning of what is known as a somewhat disappointing era of animation for Disney. Meanwhile, “The Lion King” is often argued […]

Disney takes Victor Hugo’s classic tale and tries to make it palatable for kids in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” After killing a gypsy, Frollo is convinced by the bishop not to kill her son who Frollo sees as ugly. Instead, the boy who becomes the titular hunchback is raised in the bell tower of […]
