"The Lion King" Blu-ray: In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lion

The songs are also some of the best Disney’s done, with “Hakuna Matata” and “Be Prepared” memorable for different reasons; the former for its instantly hummable melody, laid back feel, and gorgeous lush jungle visuals to go with it, and the latter for its menacing nature and not-so-subtle allusions to Nazi Germany with Scar’s goose-stepping […]

A Virtual Roundtable Discussion with "The Lion King" Co-Directors Rob Minkoff and Roger Allers

When they signed on to co-direct The Lion King, Rob Minkoff and Roger Allers had no idea they were going to make cinematic history. With its recent re-release in theaters topping box office lists for two weeks in a row, The Lion King has just broken into the top 10 list for US domestic gross […]

A Virtual Roundtable Session with Don Hahn, Producer of "The Lion King"

It’s notable that the only title you can give to Disney’s Don Hahn is “employee,” because he’s done so many different things for the company in the 35 years he’s been employed there.

"Jake and the Never Land Pirates" - This DVD Marks the Spot for Fun Treasure

Pirates sure have been good to Disney of late.

[…]

"Hoppity Goes to Town": Capra Corn

Before there were Looney Tunes, before there were Tom and Jerry, almost before there was Disney, there were the Fleischer brothers. They are best known these days for Popeye and Betty Boop and the theatrical Superman shorts, but they were around long enough and had sufficient skill and ambition that they tried competing directly with […]

Nicktoons MLB Video Game Review (Xbox 360)

Nicktoons MLB (Xbox 360) If the presence of Spongebob Squarepants on the cover doesn’t give it away, Nicktoons MLB is not the game for people seeking a deep and realistic baseball experience. But it does do a good job of what it sets out to do, provide a fun and easy to learn pick-up-and-play baseball […]
