As you all know, I wasn’t really a fan of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. I couldn’t fathom how that movie garnered over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office! But, it was no surprise to me that Disney decided to make a sequel to the film.

Released 6 years later, the sequel couldn’t compete at all with its predecessor and underperformed at the box office. I hoped that this would halt Disney’s plans on remaking more of its animated films!

I think this makes it highly unlikely!

 Anyway, I eventually saw this film. Is it as bad as people say it is? Or does it have some level of goodness to it that’s been overlooked? Get your looking-glasses handy and let’s take a look at Alice Through the Looking Glass together!

Today’s review is a request of one of my friends and followers, simoa. A lover of Pixar, animation, and classic Hollywood, she also runs the Champagne for Lunch blog. She’s a fan of Roddy McDowall’s and wanted me to review two of his live-action Disney films, so today we’re taking a look at The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin. (Let’s hope she doesn’t kill me after reading this review, lol!)

Without further ado, this is The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin!

You all know my feelings regarding these live-action remakes that Disney is doing of their animated films: I’m against them in principle, but if a film happens to be good, I’ll admit to it being so. Having said that, there were only 2 planned Disney remakes that didn’t irk me; I actually was somewhat open towards. One of them happened to be the subject of today’s review: The Jungle Book.

Directed by Jon Favreau, I felt that The Jungle Book was a book that had been adapted many times already, so I didn’t feel that this would be a remake of the 1967 animated film, per se. But, that doesn’t stop me from pointing out the differences between that film and this film. Without further ado, let’s take a look at this 2016 adaptation of The Jungle Book!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
