A great-loved musical which was a breakthrough in colorization. Made by people who were either very, very high or expected their audiences to be.

Not even remotely close to being faithful to the book but it doesn't matter, does it, with catchy-ass tunes, an unforgettable cast and fantasy beyond the rainbow of imagination.

One of the foundations to my vivid imagination. Has possibly every element in a tall tale that is closer to life than one can imagine. I have watched it more than any other movie in my life!

Little Big League
Little Big League is certainly a 90's movie. There's a precocious little kid in it who gets to do something really big against all reason, logic, or real world possibility. It holds a cosmetic resemblance …

Saw this film yesterday in 3D, and I thought it was, overall, fairly entertaining. I don't think it was as tight thematically as it could've been, but that's mostly b/c much of the film was …

I realize that Prince Caspian isn't quite as well-made as the first one. However, I think this one is the better film and I only allotted the extra 10% to the first film because I liked Tilda Swinton …
