Quote Review: Sleeping Beauty (1959)

“Royalty, nobility, the gentry, and……oh, how quaint – even the rabble.”

Far from an evenly paced or even consistently put together movie, Sleeping Beauty offers a good share of the best and worst aspects Disney are known for.  But like the tale itself, what’s good outweighs the bad (or lesser, in this case).

Quote Review: The Lion King (1994)

” A king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun.”

It’s been 17 years and The Lion King still holds up well, like most (if not all) of Disney’s other, older films. The coming-of-age and self-acceptance tale still gives us a terrific balance of comedic and serious moments. In regards to the recent 3D release, there are a few excellent shots that any avid viewer or fan of the film is bound to appreciate, but it hardly does more than give the film more visual depth. Regardless, The Lion King remains a Disney staple which is bound to continue entrancing viewers of all ages.
