Disney Universe Game Review (PS3)

Disney Universe allows players to suit-up for action as some 40-different Disney characters including characters from TRON and Pixar films! The concept of the game is pretty simple, as it’s basically a good versus evil platform-explorer game. Disney Universe’s interactive environments are computerized versions of some familiar worlds from Disney animated (and a few live

Prep & Landing DVD Review

The term “instant classic” gets thrown around fairly recklessly, but in the case of Disney’s Prep & Landing, I think it safely describes the CG animated-special’s place among Christmas favorites. When our review copy showed up, I was so excited to see this special again that I watched the DVD all the way through (special

Disney Christmas List 2011

Need help shopping for that Disney fan in your life? As people who love to buy things, we’re here to help! In recent years, we’ve switched almost exclusively to online shopping. Well, I have. Sarah still likes B&M stores for clothing, but I think it’s more difficult to purchase women’s clothing without trying it on.

Toy Story 3 Blu-ray Review

Jaws 3. Jurassic Park 3. Rambo 3. Heck, even Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Usually, the third installment in a film trilogy is where the wheels fall off.

Sleeping Beauty Blu-ray Review

Sleeping Beauty was Disney’s first animated classic to be released as a Platinum Edition Blu-ray. Although subsequent releases escalated in status to “Diamond” edition (wait, that is better than platinum, right?), there is nothing subpar about this release. Some who follow Disney animated releases, myself included, were a bit surprised that Disney would choose this

Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray Review

Everyone knows Beauty and the Beast is an awesome movie. There’s no sense fixating on its excellence. It was released during the “Disney Renaissance” of animated films. It was the first animated film ever nominated for Best Picture. In short, if you take issue with the substantive quality of this film, there’s something wrong with

Disneyland Books

Since our first trip to Disneyland last August, I have (unexpectedly) fallen in love with the place. Upon returning from that trip, I began amassing a Disneyland coffee table book collection in the vein of my Walt Disney World coffee table book collection. Unfortunately, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into, as my

Disney World Books

One of my favorite things to collect is Disney-produced books that you would find for sale exclusively in the theme parks. I find them to be the perfect thing to lounge around and read outside on a lazy Saturday, something to peruse on the plane, or even something to set on the coffee table. Looking
