Big Hero 6

We viewed this semi-recently as a family; the kids liked it more than I did although I’m not sure why I didn’t like it as much.

Still Big Hero 6 was fun and had heart, especially when dealing with the loss of a loved one. It didn’t provide all the answers, but acknowledged the loss and the grief that accompanies it and that was well done.

Robin Hood

One of my favorite Disney movies growing up was Robin Hood, and bringing it home on blu ray felt good.

Golly What A Day

Please enjoy the above illustration¬†done by Tom Whalen. It’s a great look I enjoy and it brings the movie new life every time I look at it.

Post-Christmas Gaming Continues

We’ve kept the board gaming going into this new year with having my side of the family over for some good times!

 

 

Happy Salmon (six plays!), Codenames (or first time playing our new Disney edition) and Splendor all graced the table for what would be our first game day of 2018.

The One that Broke the Spell

One of our Disney favorites growing up was Beauty and the Beast (1991) so we (she especially) had been looking forward to the live-action redo.

Tale as old as … well you know

Cinderella (2015) was well done (better than the 1950 cartoon I feel) and I took that stock to the theater hoping for another good experience.

This is just a short snapshot to record that we saw it so I’m not going in-depth here, but we were disappointed. Many of the additions and songs to the story added length but they did not add quality.

We saw the film in theaters on July 19, 2017.
