It’s been awhile since we reviewed a animated film, and this one seems right at home in Musings stash. It is a tale told to us from decades ago, but still holds true even today. Let’s take a look at what happened to the colourful town of Thneedville.
While this town seems happy and bright, it holds a dark secret. This story is how one boy, Ted (Zac Efron) learns that the girls of his dreams, the artistic Audrey (Taylor Swift) wants to see a real tree. All the trees in Thneedville are plastic, as is just about everything else. Thneedville is about the most fake town ever. Even the air needs to be bought, and it is supplied by O’Hare (Rob Riggle) Air. Read more... (727 words, 87 images, estimated 2:54 mins reading time)
We have seen some movies about characters from parallel worlds coming to our own before, but this the first one to use the classic animated fairytale world. Sure there was The Purple Rose of Cairo, back in the 80s which featured an adventurer from a 1930s movie serial, and a similar mini-series, The Tenth Kingdom, brought characters from a fairytale land to New York, as what has happened in Enchanted. Even Tin Man brought people over from Oz to collect the story’s main protagonist. Those two stories were far more serious and a bit more mature than this one. Hey, it’s a Disney family movie, and it brings the two classic Disney formulas together beautifully! Read more... (771 words, 102 images, estimated 3:05 mins reading time)

This version of the the family film series was more enjoyable than the previous movies that were made in the early 70s. This film was shot in the Jacksonville area, so if things don’t look as Swedish as they should, it is because this is an American production. Not such a bad thing, considering the bad dubbing in the earlier movies. We have a brand new crew featuring some B-list actors that we have seen in films made in the 70s and 80s, like Private Benjamin‘s Eileen Brennan and Happy Gilmore’s Dennis Dugan.
So, it starts as we see Pippi (Tami Erin) and her father, Capt. Efraim Longstocking (John Shuck) on their ship, which is suddenly struck by a freak storm, which separates them, and Pippi finds her way home with the help of some crewmates. She sets up in the old family house, which gets the attention of the two curious children living next door, Tommy (David Seaman) and Annika (Cory Crow) Settigren. The kids think the old house next door might be haunted, but once they meet the “ghost”, she turns out to be the most fun and interesting kid they have ever come across. To Mr. Settigren (Dennis Dugan), she’s a bad influence that needs to be supervised. Mrs. Settigren (Dianne Hull) is happy that her kids are happy, and sees the great things that Pippi can do, all things considered. Read more...
