Disney does it right with this live action remake! The expected lush colors and whimsical scenes are all there to dazzle your eyes. I actually don’t recall if I’ve ever completely seen the original animated movie. Halle does a great job of the reinvisioning of the character and Disney includes all cultures. There are a few dark scenes so the littles may close their eyes a couple times. I saw it in IMAX and it was great; I may see it again in 3D.
One member of a Columbian family falls short of having her own “special power” yet it doesn’t stop her tenacity. As usually Disney delivers on the visual lushness of colors and fancifulness! There’s a lot of singing that I didn’t know would be included. I saw it in 3D and it was nice.
Musicals are either a hit or miss for me, this one is a hit! I had heard great things about this movie/musical yet I was pleasantly surprised that I liked it. The music, singing, dancing and storyline kept me engaged. The IMAX experience was great!
Mariah would have to be the Queen of Christmas music! I purchased the “All I Want For Christmas” cd back in 1994 and I knew it was an instant classic. This musical special is delightful with great singing with a few special guest stars.
Based of course on the classic 1994 animated film, we have the live-action version story, which is a winner! Of course, beautifully stunning as only #Disney does it. From what I remember (I have to watch the original again) this storyline follows the original and the cgi of the animals is fantastic with great music! A family fun Summertime movie to enjoy. My first viewing was in Dolby and it was great!

This movie has been re-invented a few times over the decades with this being my first time seeing one of them. The acting is solid; the casting is solid; the chemistry is solid. I’m sure there will be awards nominations. The storyline is a bit predictable yet it’s engaging and Bradley does a great job as does Lady Gaga. Definitely worth checking out. I saw the movie in Dolby and it was great.
