I remember that when this movie came out, it was a pretty big thing. One day, my class was going on a field trip and we chartered a bus that played this movie to keep us occupied. I remember myself not really watching it, so I consider this the first time I’m seeing the film.

So, what was I expecting? Well, I remember seeing scenes with Cuba Gooding, Jr. and some white guy trying to be funny. Other than that, I really didn’t know what else to expect. Before watching the film this time, I realized that it’s directed by Brian Levant, so that automatically got me weary.

Critics don't seem to favor Brian Levant much.

Today’s film is a film that I think has become somewhat forgotten nowadays. I think mainly it has to do with the fact that we haven’t seen a movie based on this franchise in 5 years due to problematic rights issues.

But, when it came out, this movie was a pretty big deal. Everybody was excited about it and it was the 3rd highest-grossing film worldwide for 2005. But, is it any good? Well, let’s take a look at The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

If you asked me to give an example of a Disney film that is of the adventure genre, I would have to say: The Island at the Top of the World.

Based on a novel by Ian Cameron, this film is so Jules Verne-like in terms of its adventure. The story just reeks of adventure and not a minute goes by where you don’t feel a sense of adventure. Granted it’s not as fast-paced as later films such as the Indiana Jones franchise, but it’s still the most adventurous Disney film in my opinion. Without further ado, let’s begin the review of this film!

In terms of live-action, Disney is known for doing a plethora of sports films, so it’s about time that I reviewed a sports film for this blog. And why not start with the sport of horse racing with Disney’s SecretariatThe film is based on the true story of the racehorse of the same name and its owner, Penny Chenery.

Let’s go straight to the horse’s mouth and see if Disney sports films are good or whether this is just a horse of a different color.
