Two brothers discover a hurt seal at the beach and nurse it back to health. When summer is over and it’s time to return home, the brothers decide to bring their new pet home… without telling Mom and Dad. Of course, the seal gets loose and causes all kinds of trouble around the neighborhood. Even though the seal is pretty cute, but the movie felt long. The scene where they are all swimming in the pool could’ve been cut down drastically. That went on forever. The movie was fine for one-time viewing, but I don’t need to see it again and wouldn’t recommend that others need to unless you want to relive the 60s.
Simba’s daughter, Kiara, now must learn about the circle of life and prepare for the day when she will be Queen. Kiara is hesitant about her destined life and even more so after she meets Kovu, a cub from the banished pride who once followed Scar. The movie is not great but young kids will be plenty entertained. There were a couple moments that made us laugh and we were entertained enough since we wanted to see what become of our beloved Lion King characters, but the movie fell flat and we were left a bit disappointed.
We love this ride at the Disney Parks so we were ready to watch the movie and pick out all the references to this ride. And while that was fun, the movie overall is just sub-par. I don’t understand the storyline they chose to go with. Why did it have to be all about some love story? And why did it involve the mom the way it did? Weird. It started out interesting but as the story unfolded it lost us. I mean, they left out the ax murdering bride! She is the creepiest thing of the ride! If you are a fan of the ride then I say check out the movie but you don’t need to.
Sometimes movies are just bad and painful to watch. You sit there and wonder how your life has lead you to this moment. Then there are movies that are bad but so incredibly fun to mock. If you and your friends love to watch and mock bad movies, this is a good one! Sit back and laugh at the hilarity of this completely absurd movie. The acting, the story. It is all crazy. It was a made for TV movie so it is only 46 min long. Now we don’t recommend that you need to see this movie, just that if you do watch it to make sure you are with people that can laugh about it with you.
The Disney Animation Studios movie that either people have never heard of or forget about. As Disney fans, it was interesting to check out this little-known movie but we can see why it has disappeared into oblivion. The movie is not great. We never get to know these characters very well that we go on this journey with. If you were to ask me to name just one character from the movie, I couldn’t. The bad guy in this movie is legit though. He is creepy and I think young kids would be scared of him. If you are a Disney fan and haven’t seen this movie then I say go ahead and check it out. Otherwise…pass.
Ever watch a movie and suddenly you realized you are halfway through it and still don’t even know what is happening or why? That is this movie. It is just one random event after the other but none of it seems to actually make any sense or fit together. I understand it is a “hero’s journey” type of movie where while on their big quest they have many crazy adventures, but it just seemed so random here. There was no flow. And we got lost and very, very bored. I don’t think there is any way any kid would last even halfway through this movie. Redeeming factor is the fact that we kept wanting to watch to see if this would pick up and get any better. It didn’t.
This story takes place months after Dorothy has returned to Kansas from Oz. Everyone thinks she is crazy since she can’t sleep and keeps talking about Oz and all the people in it. Aunt Em, thinking she is helping, takes Dorothy to a psych ward in hopes that Dorothy can be cured and be happy once again. Dorothy is saved from the crazy doctor and nurse by a mysterious girl and is taken back to Oz where she is needed to save it. The movie was interesting enough. We wanted to see where the story would go and how it would end, but it was weird. The new friends Dorothy meets on this journey aren’t as lovable and a bit annoying. This movie is also a bit on the darker and disturbing side which isn’t always a bad thing, just a fair warning if you show it to the kids. Overall we weren’t fans but fine with having seen it once.
This is a weird movie. You watch it and think, “What? Why? What?” and yet you can’t look away. We watched this movie with a group of kids ranging in ages and they were both scared and bored. This movie had its moments that would creep and weird you out while it kept you hooked. Then it had slow moments that took forever for something to happen. While we think it may be too intense for younger viewers, especially those who scare easily, it can be a scary movie to watch during the Halloween season for kids who can handle it. But as adults, it isn’t great.
This live-action version tells the story a bit differently than the others we have seen of the classic tale. After being separated and lost in the jungle as a child, Mowgli isn’t seen by man again until he is an adult. A girl and her father take Mowgli in, having known him as a young child, and teach him the ways of civilization. Wait… isn’t that just Tarzan you ask? Our thoughts exactly. I mean, there is still the Jungle Book aspects of Mowgli being raised by wolves, having his best friend Baloo and Bagheera. But there is an added Tarzan-esque story of Mowgli falling in love with the girl, becoming friends with her dad, and then there is this other guy. Played by Cary Elwes, (who is a pro at playing creepy jerks. Look it up) Boone just wants to kill Mowgli so he can marry the girl and collect the lost treasure in the jungle. Speaking of actors, why was Mowgli played by a Chinese/Hawaiian man? Isn’t he supposed to be Indian? I mean, Jason Scott Lee wasn’t bad as Mowgli, but we can tell he is not Indian. Overall, this movie wasn’t the best, There are definitely better movies about The Jungle Book you can watch instead.
Three teens create a time machine that will take them back a few minutes. They decide to use it to go back in time and stop other kids from humiliation by bullies like they have experienced. The movie was fine enough to have watched it once but was pretty cheesy and we got a little bored. I’m sure kids will like it, but it isn’t a DCOM must see by any means.
