Sky High was a film that I’d never seen before; it seemed too much like a Disney Channel film to me. But, everyone else in the world seemed to have seen the Mike Mitchell-directed film and loved it! Did I end up loving it as well? Read on to find out!

5th Anniversary!

Well folks, it’s been 5 years since I started this live-action Disney blog! I can’t believe it’s been this long! I had originally planned to watch all the theatrically released live-action Disney films on my own time, but it was comments made by my blogger friend, swanpride, which made me decide to blog about my journey as well!

In 5 years, I’ve watched and reviewed 108 theatrically released live-action Disney films with Oz: The Great and Powerful being my very first review! And there are still so many more theatrically released live-action Disney films that I haven’t gotten to review yet that will keep me busy for another 5 years or more!

Thank you, all you readers out there who continue to read my blog, for your support! Let me know in the comments what your favorite review of mine has been!

Emil and the Detectives is apparently a German novel that has had multiple film adaptations over the years. One of those adaptations (the 1964 one, to be precise) was actually made by Disney themselves! Is the Disney film any good or is it better left forgotten? Read on to find out!

The Odd Life of Timothy Green was a live-action Disney film that when I saw it for the first time years ago, I thought that it was once of the worst live-action Disney films I’d ever seen.

Granted I hadn’t seen Prom, The Country Bears, or Old Dogs yet!

I mean, this was the film that persuaded Internet reviewer, Doug Walker, to resurrect his previously cancelled Nostalgia Critic character! So when the time came to review this Peter Hedges-directed film, I wasn’t looking forward to it. Was it as bad as I remembered it? Let’s find out as I review The Odd Life of Timothy Green!

We’ve arrived at the last live-action Disney film with Dick Van Dyke that I haven’t reviewed yet (until Mary Poppins Returns is released).

Interestingly enough, this is the only film wherein Walt Disney has a story credit, albeit as “Retlaw Yensid”!

Loosely based on the Daniel Defoe novel, Robinson Crusoe, Lt. Robin Crusoe, U.S.N. isn’t a well-known Disney film, but is that necessarily a bad thing? Read on to find out!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!
