  1. I actually haven't seen the original Mulan yet

  2. I was going to say that also, Adam. Mulan is one of the few Disney movies I haven't seen. We actually had to force the girls to stop and take their picture with her at Disney, just in case we do eventually see it and end up liking it. For some reason, I just hate the soundtrack and skip all the Mulan songs when they come on Pandora's Disney station.

    1. I haven't seen quite a lot of those Disney movies especially the older ones since Disney had a ban on showing their movies in my country during the civil wars and international embargo. It is disgusting but USA would go as far as banning movies for kids. So I missed a number of them. MULAN, ELDORADO and tons of others.
      Didn't Vanessa Williams sing lovely COLOUR OF THE WIND for Mulan? Or was that Pocahontas? Which I haven't seen either :)

    2. WTF Disney? Not cool to share the love with all kids!

      Yes, Colors of the Wind was for Pocahontas. That was a good one! (song and movie!)

    3. Yep, I was about the age of your younger kid and I remember how much I loved reading MICKEY'S ALMANAC which came out every Wednesday and how it suddenly stopped appearing at the newstands :( It was such a heartbreak... especially since back in those days we didn't have cable TV, no DVDs....

  4. Grace and Frankie just needs Dolly Parton and it will be a 9 to 5 reunion! Did you see the SNL parody of live action Disney movies last weekend? They did a trailer for a live action version of Bambi with The Rock playing Bambi.

  5. Jason. Jude. Why? Why must you do this to us? Great movie, great story, and a great cast . . . except for Melissa McCarthy. Really, she's long since worn out her welcome, don't let her drag your careers down with her.

    1. Exactly what I thought... instead of campaigning to become a real new James Bond (a role perfectly fit for him) Jude is being a clown in films such as this one. And both him and Jason are humiliating themselves by accepting to be just a vehicle for McCarthy.

    1. Hope they will cast someone you like for the lead role! Methinks, Zhang Ziyi was in the game a few years ago.

  10. I am cool with Mulan getting made into a live action movie. I just pray they leave The Little Mermaid alone. Flash/Arrow have done no wrong for me so far cast wise. So bring it.

    1. not gonna happen, the Mermaid has already been announced in live action version... but not in a few years more...

  11. OMG. Another Melissa McCarthy movie. This is going to be a blast.

    And if I'm not wrong, Mulan will be portrayed by a Filipino Chinese actress. :)
