title: Alice In Wonderland function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close() studio: Walt Disney Home Entertainment MPAA rating: G starring: Kathryn Beaumont, Ed Wynn, Richard Haydn, Sterling Holloway, Jerry Colonna, Verna Felton, J. Pat O’Malley, Bill Thompson release year: 1951 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom “Alice In Wonderland” enjoys the distinction of being probably one of the best-known stories ever told. Lewis Carroll’s wildly improbable tale of the little girl who fell through the rabbit hole while chasing a rabbit with a pocket watch has seized the imagination of millions of book lovers and movie lovers for generations. Most people assume that Lewis Carroll was a real person and either forget or don’t know that Carroll was an illusion created by Charles Dodgson, who didn’t want people to know that he’d penned anything as frivolous as “Alice In Wonderland.” Prior to this Walt Disney film version from 1951, which was remastered for the two-disc set, “Alice In Wonderland” was made into a movie first in ...

title: Cool World function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Kim Basinger, Gabriel Byrne, Brad Pitt, Candi Milo, Charlie Adler release year: 1992 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: Two Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea Frank Harris (Brad Pitt) comes home from World War II to his adoring mother outside Las Vegas full of dreams. However, when he takes her on an inaugural spin on the shiny motorcycle he won in a poker game, tragedy strikes. Mere moments after his mother's death, Frank is pulled into an alternate animated reality --Cool World -- by a daffy Mr. Magoo-like scientist. Flash forward 35 years, and Frank is the ultra-hip "noid" cop on Cool World's police force, making sure the doodles (i.e., drawn inhabitants) stick to the straight and narrow. However, a perpetual thorn in Frank's side is Holli Would (Kim Basinger). Holli is a doodle -- not unlike Marilyn Monroe as envisioned by Frank Frazetta -- and she has her eye on stardom in ...

title: Finding Nemo (Two-Disc Collector’s Edition) function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Walt Disney Home Entertainment/Pixar MPAA rating: G starring (voices): Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres, Alexander Gould, Willem Dafoe, Barry Humphries release year: 2003 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Pixar and Disney had a whale of a hit with the theatrical release of “Finding Nemo,” a tale that weds a classic tale of father and son struggling against overwhelming odds to reunite with the indelible Disney tradition of telling stories with animals as the main characters. Here, our hero is Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks), a little clownfish living in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Marlin has been overprotective of his little spawn Nemo (voiced by Alexander Gould) ever since the untimely death of his wife and 399 eggs in an incident that occurs just offscreen in the opening sequence.

title: The Lion King function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Walt Disney Home Entertainment MPAA rating: G starring: Jeremy Irons, Matthew Broderick, James Earl Jones release year: 1994 film rating: Four-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein “The Lion King,” Disney’s African continent-sized 1994 traditional animation hit, has made its way into the pantheon of legend, with good reason. The screenplay by Irene Mecchi, Jonathan Roberts and Linda Woolverton uses classic mythic structure – young prince in exile finds his courage and returns home to save the kingdom and reclaim his birthright – as the framework for a classic Disney-style animal drama musical, with anthropomorphic lions, warthogs, hyenas, birds, etc. taking all the roles.

After years of doing short cartoon features about his signature characters Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, Disney felt motivated to move out into a larger arena. Most of Disney’s early movie-length films were based on existing properties, fairy tales and stories that had endured for years, if not centuries. Before “Sleeping Beauty,” Disney had turned out “Peter Pan,” “Cinderella,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Bambi,” “Dumbo,” and “Fantasia.” By the time “Sleeping Beauty” went into production, Disney had his game plan in order.
