    Disney Blu-ray Roundup: ‘The Pirate Fairy’

    The Pirate Fairy Directed by Peggy Holmes USA, 2014 I’m not typically fond of reviews in which the writer says, in effect, “This movie wasn’t made for me,” mostly because it seems like a way in which to award something a potentially undeserved free pass. This claim frequently crops up in reviews of family films […] More

    Disney Blu-ray Round-up: ‘Frozen’

    Frozen is one of the highest-grossing animated films of all time, raking in over $1 billion worldwide in barely 4 months. If you ignore inflation or re-releases, it is the highest-grossing film from Walt Disney Animation Studios ever. A few weeks ago, it became the first of Disney’s (not Pixar’s) animated features to win the […] More

    Disney Blu-ray Roundup: ‘Monsters University’

    2013 has been, by all accounts, a forgettable year of mainstream animated films at best, and a woeful one at worst. With only two fully animated films left to be released on a wide platform—the upcoming 20th Century Fox film Walking with Dinosaurs is partially animated—it’s not likely that anyone will look back on this […] More

    Disney Blu-ray Round-up: ‘The Little Mermaid’

    As it arrives on Blu-ray for the first time, the same theme kept cropping up for me while watching The Little Mermaid: bad timing. Now, before you light your torches and sharpen your pitchforks, let’s get one thing out of the way immediately: this is still an enormously satisfying film. The quartet of big musical numbers […] More

OK, maybe that wasn’t exactly his birthday wish, but that is the topic of this week’s Mousterpiece Cinema: the 2003 documentary Ghosts of the Abyss, starring and directed by Oscar-winner/cinematic titan […] More
