You know what comes to my mind when I think of Herbie, the Love Bug? Racing? What rubbish! I, of course, think of annoying kids, cruise ships, bullfights, and Incan treasure thieves!

Or am I?

Directed by the late Vincent McEveety, Herbie Goes Bananas is not only the fourth entry in the franchise, but also the worst one, by far! Read my review to see what I mean!

In 2003, Disney made a TV film based on the novel by Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time. I’ve never seen it before, but I can only imagine that it was super good that Disney decided to make a theatrical film of it now?

She ended up breaking barriers by becoming the first African-American woman to direct a film that earned at least $100 million domestically. This was also the first live-action film with a nine-digit budget directed by a woman of color. Do these achievements prove the superiority of the film? Or were these achievements the only…achievements? Let’s find out as we review A Wrinkle in Time!

Hello readers,

Once again I’m sorry to delay my next review, but there are some events going on in my life that are keeping me busy. I have a family wedding going on this week as well as a family member in critical health condition. So dealing with the busyness and emotions related to these events will prevent me from updating this blog until September 18. Thanks for your patience!

Sky High was a film that I’d never seen before; it seemed too much like a Disney Channel film to me. But, everyone else in the world seemed to have seen the Mike Mitchell-directed film and loved it! Did I end up loving it as well? Read on to find out!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
