Disney Magic #84 - Shakespeare's Lion Theatre Part II
We're jumping right back into the straight-to-video sequels with The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, which for some reason is a lot of people's favorite Disney sequel. Does it stand above the world of the straight to video sequels as the one true good one, or is it actually just like all the rest? Let's return once again to Pride Rock.
Disney Magic #83 - Dinosaurs vs. Technical Difficulties
Unfortunately, this latest episode of The Disney Magic Podcast was plagued by audio difficulties. We have worked to smooth things out as much as possible, but you will still be able to tell some of the issues we had trying to get this particular episode to you. (As an apology, we will also be posting episode #84 simultaneously so you get at least one episode that's easier to listen to.) Still, it's worth addressing The Good Dinosaur, as it's one of the biggest misfires in the entire Pixar lineup. Everything that it's customary for Pixar to hit out of the park feels like it didn't come together on this one. We break down what could have happened and why the pieces of this particular puzzle never come together quite right to form a real picture.
Disney Magic #82: What if Feelings Had Feelings?
Pixar has gone from the depths of the ocean, to the far reaches of space, and now they're going inside the mind of a middle school girl. We get five main characters that, by definition, should be the most one dimensional character to ever get put into a movie, and yet, somehow it's one of Pixar's deepest and most thought provoking movies yet.
Disney Magic #81: A Monstrous College Experience
Pixar brings us their first prequel, the story of how the heroes of Monsters Inc., Mike and Sully, first met and became best friends back in their college days. Pixar also figures out how to take the "college movie" genre and somehow make it fit into a great G rated kids movie.
Disney Magic #80: The Bear and the Bow
It was a title that didn't seem to make a lot of sense when they first announced it, but now that we've seen Pixar's Brave, it's easy to see where the movie's original title, The Bear and the Bow, came from. It's Pixar's first movie with a female lead, as well as the first Pixar movie to be what we could consider a fairy tale.
Disney Magic #79: Larry The Cable Spy
Cars might not be the most critically acclaimed of the Pixar movies, but with merchandise sales putting just about every other Pixar franchise to shame, the fact that there's a Cars 2 isn't a surprise. That being said, the fact that this is a spy movie that's heavy on action sequences where Michael Caine is involved and Larry the Cable Guy is the main character this time was a bit unexpected. Lets dive in, to this incredibly strange installment in the Pixar lineup.
This podcast is for the disney lovers who like hearing interesting facts about the many movies Disney made.
I think they are funny and interesting and giving retelling magic to the movies.
Can't wait until new episodes
This is a great podcast for any fan of disney movies, and animation fans. Most of the episodes (with a few exceptions) consist of the two hosts talking and joking about a different disney movie per episode. Each episode is different and fun, I always play new episodes as soon as they show up on my phone. They release about 2 episodes a month on average. The only gripe I have with this podcast is that the releases are not very consistent (not like one per week/every two weeks), and are released mostly just when the hosts finish. But this is nothing major, because like I said they release about 2 every month, and the wait (when and if there is one) is usually worth it.
The podcast episodes themselves are interesting, and don't drag on, as some podcasts with around an hour length do. They always make me smile, and I enjoy all the jokes. The audio is crisp, and the content is great!
I would recommend this for anyone who is subscribed to the Rotorscopers podcast, fans of Nostalgia Critic (especially his Disneycember series), or anyone who just enjoys disney in general, and wants to spend an hour laughing and remembering how wonderful disney was.
