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 #177 - TRON LEGACY Review

DMHEp177CoverArt.jpg

GREETINGS…again…PROGRAMS!! You can take a kid out of The Grid but you can’t take The Grid out of the kid. Or in this case you can just stay in The Grid for an undetermined amount of time, find zen and become a Christ character. Or Moses. There is a lot going on here. 28 years after first meeting Kevin Flynn and crew, we are back in the digital landscape of TRON with the long awaited sequel, TRON LEGACY. After so many years how do you bring an audience back in? Do you stick with the religious allegory of the previous entries? Spoilers : They do. A lot. Does it work though? That is a whole conversation and lucky for you we are here to do just that. Lots to do! Let’s go! END OF LINE.

Disney Magic Hour Episode #172 - CONDORMAN Review plus EPIC Universal Announcement

DMHEp172CoverArt.jpg

A review has always sat on the horizon waiting to club us over the head with it’s notoriety. The horizon is now upon us and CONDORMAN is ready to strike us upon the noggin. Following STAR WARS, SUPERMAN and many successful JAMES BOND films, Disney decided to attempt to mash them all together (kinda) in hopes of appealing to everyone and what came out appealed to very very few. What about now though? In the Golden Age of Superhero films does CONDORMAN earn some points for being ahead of its time? Is it as bad as everyone claims? We will tackle that and discuss what Universal has planned for their big reveal Thursday, August 1st! Lots to do! Lets go!

DMHEp171CoverArt.jpg

In a shocking turn of events we have a live-action Disney remake to review this week as THE LION KING returns to the big screen looking quite a bit different but sounded very very familiar. Has Favreau made another standout in the live-action column for Disney? Much to discuss as we are joined by our NEWEST official member of the DMH team, Adam Corbett and regular guest, Nick Groome!!

Before we get into that though we have a slew of announcements to get into as this year’s San Diego Comic-Con brought the info hammer down with MARVEL Studios letting loose Phase 4 with some big surprises and more details towards other known incoming projects. Lots to do, lots to cover, LETS GO!!
