A Short Review of Disney’s Christopher Robin

christopher-robin-movie-review-1

Winnie The Pooh is an iconic Disney character whose story has been told for generations. This movie puts the focus on the life of Christopher Robin. His life changed because of going off to school, World War II and having a job…you know grown-up stuff that isn’t a great deal of fun at any age.

There are lots of tenderness, action, adventure and social commentary thrown in for good measure which resonates across time. Winnie says in the movie “Doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something” and that is a key part of where the movie goes into the story it wants to tell.

Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell and a who’s who of British and American talent are wonderful in this movie. It’s one that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Go see this and may it inspire you to find your own way to doing nothing and having the adventure of your lives.

Zootopia on Blu Ray, It’s A Great Flick!

Zootopia is one of the best animated movies in a long time. It’s exciting, deep and very funny. It’s out on Blu Ray now. If you haven’t seen it, do so! The movie is just as good the second time around.

“Tomorrowland” A Great Concept Movie From Disney

We are seeing “Tomorrowland” tonight and I can’t wait. When I first saw a preview of it I was immediately interested in the concept of taking the Tomorrowland section of a Disney park and turning it into a movie. This is Disney’s foray into the dystopian genre sort of. There is a great cast here including George Clooney and Hugh Laurie. I am excited to see this from an idealists perspective.
