Although it may be quiet in the movie theater world, the DVD world is coming to life with Disney’s latest releases of Frozen and Saving Mr. Banks.
I remember going to see Saving Mr. Banks back in December; I had a lot of questions about the movie when I came out. With any true story movie, being about a movie in the 1960’s called Mary Poppins and the struggle between Walt Disney (Played by Tom Hanks.) and P.L. Travers (Played by Emma Thompson.) You’re going to have a lot of questions. I fully liked the movie; it was a very entertaining movie that was not anything to do with shooting, superheroes, or action. Instead, it was a dialogue driven movie. This art is not something you find in a lot of movies. And an interesting fact: I have never in my life seen the movie Mary Poppins, but I didn’t need to see it to understand this movie. Instead, before watching Mary Poppins, better watch this movie first, its more of a crossover of a movie about the development stage of the original movie, and a special feature on the making of the movie.

Another movie that has broken several records with it surpassing the 1-Billion dollar mark at the box office, making it the twelfth highest grossing movie of all time, and winning two Academy Awards, Frozen. I had a lot of anticipation when I saw this, and the patience of this movie paid off. I originally was not going to see it because it didn’t look like it was worth paying $10.00 for. But now I realize, once again, never trust posters or trailers, they are extremely deceiving. With it out on DVD, and still running in theaters overseas, it looks like I was dead wrong on this animation musical. I’m excited to have seen for myself the magical movie about sisterly love, along with Ice, Olaf, and music. I was a bit concerned that it was not worth the wait, but again I was wrong. My only complaint is that the villain (No Spoilers.) didn’t translate enough. It was a person you like and then just suddenly turn evil, and that I didn’t like. But other than that, it was well worth the wait. It also had a level where it can be enjoyed by adults and children alike. I’m past of the kittie kids material, but I still enjoyed this because it was not kittie, it still was for kids, but maintained a level where us adults can understand it and laugh at it, and enjoy it, and be entertained ..
