Disney Magic Hour Episode #53 - Disney Movie Hour Featuring Swiss Family Robinson

The Disney Movie Hour segment returns this week as we look back at the 1960 action adventure film, Swiss Family Robinson.  A huge success when it opened on December 21st, 1960, does this film hold up?  Factoring the animal torture, child actor who almost made us destroy a TV, and a set that endured a flood, there is a lot to go over.  After giving some background on the cast, crew, and production of the film we will go and discuss the film in whole.  At the conclusion we will ask three questions that all entries of the Disney Movie hour face.  First, is the film aimed at teaching a moral, or aimed more at getting an emotional response?  Does it accomplish both?  Neither?  Second we discuss what the iconic shot of the film is and finally, does the film hold up?  We also discuss the new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction coming to Disneyland.  Lots to discuss and we, as always, have enlisted the help of Ryan P Wilson of the Main Street Gazette!  It's showtime!

Disney Magic Hour - Alice Through the Looking Glass BONUS Review

Pictured, the main issue with this film.  

Pictured, the main issue with this film.  

This afternoon I went to see ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS to bring you a day of release review on the follow up to Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND.  Personally I had high hopes with James Bobin taking over the directorial reigns with his successful Muppet's reboot.  When I saw the trailer though it seemed the same old same old.  Disney trailers lately though have been very poorly put together in raising my excitement.  How did the film wind up through?  Does it take the material and achieve a better thread that we experienced in the first film or does it stagger into the same issues?  We shall see!

Disney Magic Hour Episode #12 - Disney Movie Hour featuring PINOCCHIO

We continue our look back into Disney Animated feature films by examining the 1940 classic PINOCCHIO. We will look at the history behind the production of the film, breakdown the film itself, then ask if it stands the test of time, what is the heart of the film, and what is the iconic image of the film.

This episode gets wacky in a good way because the film itself is very strange in various aspects.  Hope you enjoy and please share this show on your social media outlets so we can reach out to as many people as possible.  All of your support is GREATLY supported.
