"101 Dalmatians" Platinum Edition DVD Easily Wins Best in Show

by Ed Liuon March 4, 2008
On the surface, Disney’s 101 Dalmatians seems rather similar to Lady and the Tramp, which had been released 6 years earlier. Both films break from the Disney tradition of adapting fairy tales. Both films center on a pair of dogs who stray off for a variety of adventures before finally returning to the safety of […]

"Cinderella II: Dreams Come True," But Not in This Sequel

by Ed Liuon January 30, 2008
It was an uphill battle convincing people that Cinderella III: A Twist in Time was a genuinely good movie, and much of the reason for their doubt can be traced back to Cinderella II: Dreams Come True.

According to one of the special features on Disney’s Peter Pan Platinum Edition, Walt Disney took on the title role in a school production of the original J.M. Barrie stage play.

"Robin Hood: Most Wanted Edition" Misses the Mark as a Film

by Ed Liuon December 29, 2006
Robin Hood is one of the world’s truly enduring fictional characters. The outlaw who robs from the rich to give to the poor has always had obvious popular appeal, and Robin’s roguish charm and wily intelligence place him alongside classic trickster figures of myth and folklore. The thief and his merry men have been film […]

"The Little Mermaid" Platinum Edition: Grand Release of an Almost Magical Film

by Ed Liuon October 10, 2006
Confession time: I have never been a huge fan of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, and was never really able to articulate why. It could be that I’m just not in the target demographic for the film, or because I missed it in theatres and first saw it on pan-and-scan VHS on a tiny screen surrounded […]
