Disney Reviews by the Unshaved Mouse: Introduction

Hi all,

Very recently I became a father, and I freely admit that there are probably wolves out there that know more about child rearing than I do. I do know one thing, though. If my daughter grows up without knowing that Disney is awesome I will have failed as a father, a human being and, yes, as one of the higher primates.

What did you say about Pocahontas?!!!!

 So I have decided to embark on a massive, foolhardy and quite possibly dangerous quest: To watch and review all of the canon Disney classics until there are none left or I get bored and give up. And because this is the internet and random ranking and comparison is how we do, I will be rating each of them out of a hundred to try and find the best and worst Disney movie.

First of all, a few ground rules:

Rule 1. None of the straight to video sequels, because those things give you Ebola.

Everything was fine until someone watched Mulan 2: Mul Harder

Rule 2: No live action movies. I’m only doing the full length animated theatrical releases. I may, however, decide to review live action movies with animated segments like Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks and Song of the South because apparently I don’t have enough rage and controversy in my life.

Rule 3: No Pixar movies. Yeah, I know they’re awesome. But they’re not Disney movies. They’re Pixar movies, it’s a completely different tone and aesthetic. All that Disney/Pixar BS doesn’t fly here.

You. Do. Not. Fly. Here.

Rule 4 Never trust a man with smile lines around his mouth and none around his eyes. That’s not a rule for the blog, that’s a rule for life. You’re welcome.

Okay, let this mad folly commence…

    1. It’s one of my favourites too….favourite villain, favourite Disney Prince, favourite score but above all, favourite animation…I can’t watch this movie enough, just for watching the details.

  1. Let me go against the rest of the world and say: the DTV sequels aren’t that bad. Sure, they are not as good as the canon movies, but as for the ones I have seen, they have been okay. So to say that you get ebola from them is really over the top in my opinion.

    1. “The Lion King 1 1/2” is good if you don’t mind it trampling the holy ground that is the original “The Lion King”. It’s my personal fave.
      I haven’t watched any more of them, but I’ve heard good words about “Cinderella III: A Twist in Time” and the two “Aladdin” DTV sequels (Coming to Blu-Ray in January, as I’ve also heard).

      1. Thank you! I have usually liked the DTV sequels, which I have seen, and I feel that their bad reputation is really unfair. And yeah, “Cinderella III” seems to be really good.
