Disney Magic Hour Episode #179 - Something Wicked This Way Comes

DMHEp179CoverArt.jpg

By the pricking of my thumb, Jonathan Pryce this way comes. I will be very upfront in saying a wacky mood was in me during this recording. Very hyper and rather silly but that is because the crazy 80’s continues as Ray Bradbury brings a tale of temptation in the form of a sinister carnival led by Mr. Dark. It seems Disney is trying to find a new identity here with varying success but they get in their own way with an abundance of revisions to what Bradbury and director Jack Clayton aimed for. The result is still a great experience but you can see interference at the films conclusion. Did that sink our experience? Does the film find a way to hold up? In a film that has quite a number of attractive camera work, what is the iconic shot? This week we are joined by Theme Park Stop’s Ian Kauffman to break it all down! Lots to do! Lets go!

PLEASE NOTE : There was an audio snafu on this episode that you will hear in the background. I apologize but it was impossible to remove so other than snuff the entire episode we decided to release what we have and I think it’s a great discussion so it would have killed me to not release it. ENJOY!!

Disney Magic Hour Episode #159 - 1980's POPEYE Discussion and Review

You may not think of it as a “Disney” film but 1980’s POPEYE starring Robin Williams and Shelley Duvall was in fact produced by Disney along with Paramount and Richard Evans Productions. The film has earned a cult status since it’s release nearly 40 years ago despite it being a financial success. The reviews from critics and audiences alike were all over the place and leaning more heavily in the negative. What about it though? Has time shown it for what it really is one way or another? We will discuss that, the production history and the film itself on this weeks episode of Disney Magic Hour! Let’s go! It’s showtime!

DMHEp151CoverArt.jpg

The Disney Magic Hour is traveling through time and space to review the utterly bonkers 1979 THE BLACK HOLE.  Take a trip with us and #NotNemo to beyond the realm of our reality into (checks notes) ...Hell?  We will discuss the production of the film, the actors involved, where the story came from and how it all comes together as we ask the three questions we put to any film... 1) Does it hold up?  2) Does it achieve its moral message/what is the moral message? 3) What is the iconic shot? Why is Ernest Borgnine dressed as a lion?

This film is three sheets to the wind weird so lets all jump in together and get nuts!
