Disney has a history of making movies based on true events in various sports fields. In 2016, the “sport” they chose to make a movie of was chess. Would a true story of one of the first titled female chess players in Ugandan history captivate me? True, I’m a fan of chess, but the trailers weren’t really pulling me in. So, what did I think of Queen of Katwe after watching it? Read on to find out!

Released to theaters in 1973, Superdad was the Disney movie made to address the “generation gap”: the differences in outlooks and lifestyles between the adults and college-aged kids during the Vietnam War Era. Was the film a success? Nope, no it wasn’t. Many people consider this to be the worst (or at least one of the worst) live-action Disney films ever made! Just to show how little faith Disney had in this film: they kept the film sitting on the Disney shelves for a whole year before they decided to release it in theaters!

So, I figured it’s best that I hurry up and check this one off the list as quickly as I can! Here is my review of Superdad!

Today’s review has been requested by a longtime follower of the blog, oscarstainton. I’ve been reviewing a lot of films recently dealing with animals, jungles, and the like and this one’s no different. Arguably, the most famous cinematic ape is King Kong. But, the creators of the 1933 King Kong film made another film in 1949 also centered around a massive ape entitled, Mighty Joe Young. Disney would remake this film in 1998 which would end up flopping at the box office! So, is this film truly a monster or is there beauty hidden within? Read on to find out!

Today, I tackle yet another request from a fellow blogger and friend, Simoa, from Champagne for Lunch. You could say that the film she requested is out of this world! It’s The Cat from Outer Space.

"Not sure if that's an interesting or stupid title....actually no, it's a stupid title."

“Not sure if that’s an interesting or stupid title….actually no, it’s a stupid title.”

Yeah, the title is quite stupid. Was the film stupid too or did I actually find myself enjoying it? Let’s go through my review to find out!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
