Well guys, I did it. I finally did it. I found a live-action Disney movie that’s worse than Prom and Old Dogs! You don’t even need to read the rest of this review; this is the worst live-action Disney movie that I’ve ever seen for this blog so far!

“Oh well, no need to read further. Byeeeee!”

Sigh…I guess the review must go on. Released in 2002, The Country Bears was the second theatrically-released Disney film based on one of their park attractions.

But, it was the first one to be released through the Walt Disney Studios label itself! Also, Disney made a Tower of Terror TV movie back in the day, so this is technically the 3rd “based-on-a-park-attraction” Disney movie!

For many people, the Country Bear Jamboree attraction at the Disney parks, is somewhat of a cult classic. It’s a beloved must-see for many! I personally have only been on it once, despite having gone to Magic Kingdom multiple times in my life. I actually went on it last year, to be precise, and…I wasn’t a fan of it at all!

“Burn him!”

So when it came time for me to watch this movie, I was hoping it would be better than the attraction…sadly, it wasn’t. Without further ado, let’s take a look at The Country Bears.

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

Regarding Hurricane Irma!

, ,

Hello readers,

As many of you know, I live in Orlando, Florida. And as many of you also know, there is an incredibly intense hurricane named Irma headed our way. It’s currently a Category 4 storm, but has the possibility of strengthening back to a Category 5 when it hits the Floridian mainland. It’s estimated to hit Florida in the early morning hours of Sunday and go through the entire state all thru Monday.

We’re praying that we’ll all be safe and come out with as minimal damage as possible from this! So just know that because of the hurricane, don’t expect any new posts on this blog for the next week. After the hurricane hits (and if we still have Internet connection), I’ll try to update you all afterwards on the aftermath. I’ll also try to update my Twitter (@The_Anim_Comm) if I can, so keep a lookout there too.

Until then, keep us in your prayers! Thanks!

Before I get into the review, I firstly wanna apologize for how late this review is! I ran late on editing it.

Secondly, I wanna point out that this film was one of the few films that Disney made in black-and-white. However, it was later colorized and I happened to watch the colorized version. I would have preferred to see the original black-and-white version, but this was the copy that I got my hand on. So without further ado, let’s take a look at The Absent-Minded Professor!

In 1961, the horse diver, Sonora Webster Carver, wrote a memoir about her life entitled A Girl and Five Brave Horses. 30 years later, Disney released a film based on the memoir entitled Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken. Fortunately, Mrs. Carver was still alive at the time to see the film (she lived a very long life dying in 2003 at the age of 99). I personally hadn’t heard of this film at all until I decided to watch it for this blog. Did it break my heart? Read on to find out!
