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!

Prejudice, especially that which is due to skin color or religious beliefs, is a dangerous and disgusting societal evil that every generation bears witness to. In recent events, we have witnessed what African Americans in this country go through on a daily basis. The Jews have gone through this for hundreds of years. And since 2001, Muslims like myself, are no stranger to the word, “Islamophobia”.

If only things like this would get more media coverage!

How do people address the issue of prejudice? Many people use various mediums, including film. The Disney Studios themselves addressed this topic in a film entitled The Light in the Forest. Although dealing with prejudice between white men and the American Indians, the film is extremely relevant in our era and applicable to any one of us.

Sometimes I wonder if Hollywood will ever make a film solely dedicated to the sport of cricket? From a marketing standpoint, it would be a bad move since Americans are pretty ignorant about cricket.

Even though America has a national cricket team!

But also from a marketing standpoint, it would be a good move because the majority of the world knows and plays this sport. I feel what Hollywood would do is somewhat dive into a film that has the slightest relation to cricket and then make the film baseball-related. That brings us to Million Dollar Arm. Based on a true story, Million Dollar Arm tells the story of the first Indians to play in the MLB. Is it any good? Let’s find out!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
