This was a movie that came out last January, but very quietly. Not many people seemed to know about it and as a result, the film flopped at the box office. Many people say that had this film been marketed better, it could have fared better at the box office. Others say that the movie itself was just bad which was why it flopped. What do I say? Let’s find out! Here’s my review of The Finest Hours!

We all know that Disney made an animated version of the Robin Hood story in 1973. But, many of us don’t know that Disney had already tackled that story many years earlier! Released in 1952, The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men was not only a live-action retelling of the story, but also Disney’s second fully live action film ever made! Does it hold up as a Robin Hood film? Let’s find out!

This is a movie that was enveloped in a lot of secrecy when it was first announced. We had no idea what it would be about! When we heard the title, Tomorrowland, for the first time, we assumed it had something to do with the section in the Disney theme parks of the same name. The only thing we really knew and were pinning our hopes on was that the director was going to be Brad Bird of Pixar fame.

Unfortunately, when the film was released, it got mixed reviews and didn’t do all that well in the box office. Yet, there were still some Disney fans who said that this film was actually a treasure that audiences just didn’t appreciate. So, what do I think about the film? Do I agree with the overall critics and think the film is a mixed bag? Or do I agree with the others who say that this film is actually quite underrated? Let’s find out! Let’s take a look at Tomorrowland!

A reverend named Albert Fay Hill passed away in 2014. He was most famously known for creating a citizen’s task force made up of women who helped bring down local gambling dens. He later published a book about it in 1968 and Disney adapted it as a comedy film in 1979.

Today, we are going to be reviewing that very film at the request of long-time follower and fellow blogger friend, Rachel Wagner. Sit back and relax as we take a look at The North Avenue Irregulars!
