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.

Okay, lots of the music is a duplicate from the first film eight years ago. I found the storyline to be slow and not interesting and fun like the first film. Although, one of the original characters has now passed away, she’s still in the movie. Also, Cher’s appearance so to speak saves the movie.
