Since I’ve finished reviewing Escape to Witch Mountain and Return from Witch Mountain, it’s time to talk about that third film in the series: the remake/reboot, Race to Witch Mountain.

Technically, this is actually the 5th film in the series as there were two TV films released before this: Beyond Witch Mountain in 1982 and a remake of Escape to Witch Mountain in 1995. But since my blog is only devoted to the theatrical releases, I only have to review the 2009 film, Race to Witch Mountain.

"Well, whoop dee double guh-er doo for you!"

“Well, whoop dee double guh-er doo for you!”

So, the question arises: Since these Witch Mountain films are somewhat of a success or at least relatively famous, can rebooting the franchise/remaking the film and updating it for a modern audience work? Let’s find out.

With Disney’s onslaught of live-action remakes of their previous films comes the announcement of a remake of their 1977 film, Pete’s Dragon. While the original was a musical, the remake is set to be a regular film with stars such as Bryce Dallas Howard and Robert Redford. The film is set to be released next year, so while we await it, it seems proper to review the original film first.

So, let’s sit back and take a look at this film and see if Pete’s Dragon is any good and worthy to be remade or if it’s not good at all, hence worthy of being remade.

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

Post Delayed Till July 6th!

Hello readers! I’m sorry to announce again that I have to postpone my review. My review of Pete’s Dragon will have to be published next week, on July 6th. I’ve been busy this past week especially with this being the month of Ramadan for us Muslims. It’s when we fast from food and drink from dawn to sunset for a month and try to do extra prayers, etc. Because of all that, I’ve been busy and just tired as well. So once again, I apologize for the postponement. Thanks!

Who would have thought that a film originally intended to be a racy R-rated parody of Disney’s beloved classics would end up being what many people would consider a modern-day classic? That’s a fairy tale in and of itself! Today, we take a look at that film that reminded us of what we loved about Disney classic films in the first place, Enchanted!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
