When Max makes a preposterous promise to a girl he has a crush on, his chances to fulfilling it seem hopeless when he is dragged onto a cross-country trip with his embarrassing father, Goofy.
I watch this movie for the songs. I never owned it growing up but I still have the songs memorized because they are just so awesome. Disney missed out on not releasing an album of just Powerline songs. I had his band t-shirt that Target sold. The songs are perfectly 90s.
The story is cute too, it is, after all, a Disney movie. Again, though, the songs mannnnn. Sorry, not sorry.
Sadly, the movie is not available on Blu-ray, but it is on DVD and Disney+.
Lion Prince Simba and his father are targeted by his bitter uncle, who wants to ascend the throne himself.
This is definitely the golden age of Disney. The songs and animation are top-tier. I wish they made 2D animated movies like this still. I actually have a little card of Mufasa roaring that I got from McDonald’s when the movie first came out. I can not tell you why I kept it all this time, except that I was unable to suppress my hoarding tendencies when it came to it.
Anyway, I started watching the movie on Disney+ because I’m lazy but because of my connection the sound kept getting out of sync. So I switched to my blu-ray. The quality was incredibly noticeable and I started comparing it to The Beauty and the Beast. I highly recommend watching this in physical format if you have the option. The movie is beautiful.
Elton John did the songs and Hans Zimmer did the score, I’m not sure if you could get a better combo than that. To this day I will randomly start singing these songs. I used to play Can You Feel the Love Tonight on my recorder. It’s my mom’s own damn fault for buying me the Disney recorder and music set.
I chose to watch this movie with my kids because I felt that Mufasa’s death was a good next step in the trauma of kid’s movies. There were tears and screaming. Lots of questions about why I would subject them to this, but hey, at least it wasn’t My Girl.
Several voice actors discuss their art and their careers.
Voice acting is so interesting, so when I saw this movie on Netflix I could not pass on watching it. Since I’m actually interested in the subject a lot of what they said I already knew, but it was fascinating just to hear the actors talk about their craft.
I did feel like there was some barely contained bitterness about their perception in the rest of Hollywood by some of the actors. For the most part, though, they all seemed really nice and like a family.
I liked that they included a part about voice acting in video games. That’s something I hear more and more about lately. Actors in the studio recording for the new Firefly game or Keifer Sutherland taking over the voice of Snake in the Metal Gear Solid game.
If I decided to become an actor I would totally want to do voice.
