Mulan – Loyalty, Bravery, Truth and Devotion to Family

Mulan follows the journey of discovery from child to that of a woman. A woman that who must overcome obstacles to save a kingdom. Many of those obstacles she has to overcome is that of her own making. The movie is in many ways a journey of discovery as well as that of redemption, even the redemption of an unlikely foe. The movie starts with the father narrating the life of his daughter, Mulan (Yifei Liu).

Tomorrowland (2015) Screenshots

This is one of the finer movies that I have seen to depict both dystopia and utopia all in the same film. You have both young and old, representing both and you see what happens when you feed the wrong wolf. That is something from the movie.

Darby O’Gill and the Little People

Today is the bog holiday where everyone in the world wants to be Irish, or at least help them celebrate. We’ve been doing this all week here at Musings, and today we bring you a Disney classic, Darby O’Gill and the Little People. Darby O’Gill (Albert Sharpe) is an old lazy layabout who loves nothing more that to tell stories about the Little People as he sips on his stout down at the pub in his little town. There is a mountain just outside the town, Knocknasheega, which is said not only to be haunted by bain sidhe, but under the mountain is the home of the leprechauns. Darby is a caretaker for Lord Fitzpatrick, a kind, but firm landowner,……
