Podcasts

The latest podcasts reviewing the new Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies. We also look at the news from Disney movie properties week-by-week, and look at what is coming to Disney Blu Ray and DVD.


This week Ken was out at the D23 Expo, so we put our Disney brains to the test to win prizes for listeners! We ask and (sometimes) answer 32 questions about characters, quotes, odd knowledge, and random Disney facts. If you think you know Disney, hang on my friend because this is the episode where we separate the men from the boys. Below are the questions we ask in the episode. The answers to all of these questions are in the episode below: In Hawaiian, which character’s name literally means “Ocean” or “Sea”? What movie contains the line, “Could it be? Is it she?” “There is one in every family” is the tagline for what Disney classic? What quote is this movie from – “How many feet are in a mile? Five thousand, two hundred and eighty feet.” What quote is […]

The Ultimate Disney Trivia Quiz


Spider-Man: Homecoming review picture
The Good: Probably the best and most accurate Spider-Man that we’ve seen. It’s incredibly funny and had a ton of emotional heart. The special effects are incredibly well done. It forms strong ties to the Marvel Cinematic Universe The Bad: The timeline appears to be a major mistake, but we’ll have to wait for more. It’s hard to follow the action in a few fight scenes. Spider-Man: Homecoming Spoiler Review This is the best Spider-man movie I’ve ever seen. There’s really no debating that. After six movies and three different spidey’s in the last 15 years, Sony finally got it right and Director John Watts has secured a $117 million opening weekend and likely a bright future for his career. Of course, this movie is really the product of an unprecedented partnership between Sony and Marvel Studios – a partnership […]

Spider-Man: Homecoming Is Best One Yet.


Marvels Inhumans Trailer Image
This week on the podcast we talk about how Marvels InHumans trailer missed its target audience. Walt Disney World is offering discounts that may point to a larger drop in attendance than we originally thought. And it looks like ESPN’s numbers may actually be improving….or it may just be our imagination. Plus we dive head first into the Pirates of the Caribbean controversy about the redhead. Check out the full episode below. Marvel Inhumans Trailer Misses Horribly on InHumans Around the time Guardians of the Galaxy came out, Saturday Night Live did a parody of Marvel that basically showed how they could not fail at the box office. A few years later, Marvel came to Netflix and further expanded their dominance to streaming content. We thought Marvel couldn’t miss. We were wrong. This week Marvel released a trailer for its newest […]

Marvel’s InHumans Trailer and ‘We Wants The Redhead’



This week on the podcast Lucasfilm fires the directors for the Han Solo standalone film, Disney has another Frozen short that is slated to be released with Coco, and we’re pretty sure we’ve figured out the mystery of that untitled live-action fairy tale. That and much, much more. For the week of June 26, 2017, this is episode 137 of The Disney Movie Review. Listen to the full episode here: Lucasfilm Fires Directors For Star Wars Han Solo Project The biggest news of this week was probably the firing of Chris Miller and Phil Lord and from Lucasfilm’s Han Solo standalone film. The geniuses behind The Lego Movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and the 21 Jump Street series were let go roughly four months into shooting the film. Both sides released statements citing “creative differences” and Lucasfilm promptly […]

Lucasfilm Fires Han Directors And Frozen Shortcuts Pixar


The Good: New characters bring delightful interactions Animation and sound design are brilliant Moral lesson is impactful Much better than the second film The Bad: Musical score is lacking Script organization lends itself to misunderstanding character motivations CARS 3 Spoiler Review It’s not exactly a compliment to say that Cars 3 is better than Cars 2. The first sequel to the 2006 Cars film is a low point in Pixar’s history. Still, that shouldn’t take away from the quality of Cars 3. In his directorial debut, Brian Fee brings a film that is a treat for the entire family. Listen to our full review below: An Aging Lightning McQueen The movie picks up as Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is at the top of his game. However, it soon becomes apparent that newcomer Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) will take the crown […]

This week, Bob Iger resigned from Donald Trump’s Advisory Council. We talked about what’s changed since he initially decided to serve on the council and whether this move could hurt Disney. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales pushed Disney past $3 billion at the global box office, but were critics too harsh on the movie? Also, attendance was down at all of the Disney parks in 2016. What does this mean for your summer vacation? That, and much, much more. For the week of June 3, 2017, this is Episode 134 of The Disney Movie Review. Listen to the full episode below IGER LEAVES TRUMP COUNCIL Probably the biggest news for Disney this week was the announcement that Disney CEO Bob Iger will step down from President Donald Trump’s advisory council. The move comes in response to […]

The Good: It’s much better than At Worlds End Javier Bardem lights up the screen as Captain Salazar The Bad: Johnny Depp’s performance as Captain Jack Sparrow brings down the entire movie. The writing is clunky and provides pointless gags that fall flat. This is unlikely to be the final Pirates movie. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review It’s telling when you walk out of a movie and say, “At least it’s not the worst in the series.” Yet that is where I was after seeing Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. In our spoiler review I talk about how this movie could have been much better if the script went through one more round of revisions. (Listen to the full spoiler review below). Actually, it may not have been the script alone that doomed the […]

POTC: Dead Men Tell No Tales Spoiler Review


There are a couple of things you need to know before we get started. 1.) Up is not my favorite Disney movie. It’s not even my favorite Pixar movie. 2.) “Success” doesn’t mean “best.” That second point is really important. In fact, success is so subjective that we spent an entire episode trying to determine which film is the “most successful” Disney movie of all time. Listen to our full episode of The Disney Movie Review below. How to Define ‘Success’ Everyone has different metrics and that colors the results. If money is the only thing that matters, then Star Wars: The Force Awakens likely sits on top of your “most successful” list. If you are looking for Oscar statues, Mary Poppins might make your list since it won awards for Best Actress, Best Film Editing, Best Original Score, Best Song, and Best Visual Effects. […]
