We finally come to the first CGI film in the Disney Canon! Ok, it may not be FULLY CGI (many of the backgrounds are real), but hey, as long as there are no live humans in it, I consider it a CGI film!

Which is why I don't consider these to be animated films!

And this film is none other than the weakly titled, “Dinosaur”! More

Blue Sky Studios’ “Epic” opens up to a less than epic domestic box office opening at #4! Grossing $32 million, the film made about as much as was predicted by most “experts”. In terms of worldwide gross, the film has made about $77 million, so it may have potential to be a hit after all! Have you seen it? If so, did you like it? If not, do you plan on seeing it?

Well, we’ve left the glorious age of the Disney Renaissance

It's ok! You may cry!

It’s ok! You may cry!

and are now in what I like to call, “The…Post-Disney Renaissance/Modern Age”. During this era, the animated Disney features would stop being nigh unanimous critical and commercial hits and would be like they were in the ’70s-’80s, i.e. some would be hits and others wouldn’t.

And today’s film not only showcases its post-Disney Renaissance quality, but also brings us back to the format of package films! More

Sadly, we arrive at the end of the Disney Renaissance!

It's ok! You may cry!

It’s ok! You may cry!

Well, all good things must come to an end eventually! And this particular era eventually ended in 1999 with Disney’s 37th animated feature, “Tarzan”. Warning: there are some spoilers in this post, so beware if you haven’t seen the movie! More

"I'm officially golden!"

“I’m officially golden!”

Well, I’ve hit another milestone!

When I started this blog, I never thought that I would have much followers, much less 50! So today’s post is all about you lovely people who make my blog what it is!

When I hit “25 followers”, I did a post thanking each one of them and giving each a shout-out with a description of them as well as a link to their blog. So I’ll be doing the same thing here continuing from #26!

So, once again, I’d like to thank the following people for following and reading my blog! If it weren’t for you all, my blog would be pointless. So without further ado, here are the names: More

Ray Harryhausen has died today at the age of 92! Mr. Harryhausen (1920-2013) was known best for his work creating stop-motion animation for various live-action films including “Jason and the Argonauts”, “The 7th Voyage of Sinbad”, “The Golden Voyage of Sinbad”, and “Clash of the Titans” amongst others.

My Thoughts: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1987/1988)

Today’s review is the first one that has ever been requested of me.

The name of the requester is Jegsy Scarr, an often viewer of my blog. She is an ardent fan of “The Phantom of the Opera”, so much so as to even compose FanFiction about it. And being a fan of “The Phantom of the Opera”, she suggested that I review either “A Monster in Paris” or an animated version of “The Phantom of the Opera”.

Well, seeing as how I’ve not seen the former yet; the latter is the focus of this post! More
