Mars Needs Moms (3D/2D) (2011) Normally I love Disney products, but “Mars Needs Moms,” eek.  The film goes wrong in some many ways it is hard to keep track.  The film is based on a short story, a bedtime story, by author Berkeley Breathed.  Those with children likely have a pile of his books already on the bedside table.  If not, then you really should. The film takes the imaginative illustrations and story of Breathed and stretches to film 88 minutes of screen time.  As with nearly every short story adaptation, the end film suffers greatly from the unnecessary runtime.  Short stories should be short films, not feature length. In “Mars Needs Moms” Milo, a typical kid who is reluctant to obey his mother (you know, not taking out the trash, not eating broccoli, etc.) finds that Martians have targeted his mother for their planet.  Abducted in ...

Gnomeo & Juliet (3D/2D) (2011) Gnomeo, Gnomeo, where for art thou Gnomeo?  “Gnomeo & Juliet” is the loosely based on the classic Shakespeare tragedy of the similar title.  Obviously, being a family film it cannot end in tragedy, or can it?  The answer I believe is obvious, but I will leave it to you to find out. The film centers on two households, the Blue and the Red.  But instead of humans we have garden gnomes.  We are introduced to the homeowners as feuding neighbors and that feud carries to their respective gnomes.  When the humans are away it is time for the gnomes to play. The names of all the gnomes is too much to recall, but on the Blue side we have Gnomeo and his mother, along with Gnomeo’s pal Benny and dog-acting mushroom gnome.  On the Red side we have Juliet and her father, ...

Incredibles, The (2004) For a long time now I have been waiting for the release of “The Incredibles” on Blu-ray.  It is without a doubt my favorite of the Disney/Pixar films, right next to “Finding Nemo.”  I do have a bias toward this film given my work on the film.  However, that aside, the film is one of Pixar’s strongest all-around productions. Brad Bird’s “The Incredibles” gives the audience something to enjoy regardless of your age.  It has adventure for the kids and family dynamics for the adults.  Thos two elements come together perfectly to make this a true animated classic. First, the characters in the film are well constructed.  Each character has a distinct presence on screen and a true purpose.  The characters are driven by a terrific script and great voice acting.  Each subplot is given just the right amount of attention and ...

Tangled 3D (2010) This is a look at the 3D version of “Tangled.”  For more information about the film please visit the 2D review here. After watching the film for a second time, I found that the music was better than I thought the first time around.  While it still wasn’t up to par with the classic Disney films where the music grabs you right from the start, it definitely was more enjoyable.  I’m not sure whether it was the second viewing or the added bonus of the 3D nature of the film that made the music stand out more.  Either way, it is welcomed. I am not going to summarize the film for you again.  Please visit the 2D review for more information on that topic.  The primary focus here is the 3D nature of the Blu-ray. “Tangled” is the Disney group’s second native 3D ...

Tangled (2010) With every Disney feature film release, the studio must live up to its own reputation.  “Tangled” is Disney 50th feature film and is a good outing indeed.  But, yes there is a but, the film lacks the ultimate flow that Disney is well-known for. “Tangled” is a typical Disney Fairy Tale princess film.  It has all the elements, including great characters and stunning visuals.  What it is lacking, is an unnoticeable story flow and truly capturing music. The film comes in at just over 100 minutes, which is a bit longer than the majority of Disney’s releases.  And this would account for some of the lag in the film.  There is a really nice opening and then the film just kind stalls for a bit.  The progression of the princess hidden in the tower to Flynn Rider and the deal between then ...
