  • Lion King – Animated vs Broadway vs Live Action
    The “live action” (actually CGI, folks) remake of The Lion King is hitting theaters.  This new version of the Disney 1994 classic features significant differences.  Now is a great time to return to Pride Rock — and revisit Simba, Nala, Timon, Pumbaa, Mufasa, Zazu, and Rafiki — as we compare …
  • Movie Review – The Lion King (2019)
    If you’re not a Lion King fan, then I think you’ll find the 2019  live action (CGI, really) version more enjoyable than the animated one, based on more humor and the outstanding cinematography. For my part, I feel a little numb because I effectively watched the movie three times today working …
  • Actor Voices for Every Lion King Character (2019)
    Here’s a photographic list of the main characters and the actors’ voices behind them in the 2019 CGI (AKA ‘Live Action’) remake of The Lion King. Simba (young) JD McCrary This talented young (12 y/o) actor already has an extensive TV filmography, even appearing as a young Michael Jackson in the TV series American …
  • The Lion King – Rewatch Review of the Animated Classic
    This week the rebooted version of The Lion King arrives in theaters. But before that happens, I want to say a few things. To start with, the original 1994 Lion King is one of the best Disney movies EVER. For me, it’s right after The Little Mermaid, and that’s saying …
  • Surprise! The Lion King is a Hamlet Remake
    As you may know there, is a controversy that surrounds The Lion King. The fact that it possibly stole its entire movie from one called Kimba the White Lion is one ting…but we’re not talking about that here. We are going to be talking about how the Lion King is …
  • The Lion King – Can Disney Remake a Masterpiece?
    My two cents worth as I anticipate The Lion King this week. I’m fascinated to see how Disney can remake a masterpiece. The original movie was amazing, and the stage musical was also, in an entirely different way. When my daughter, Destiny, and I saw the musical in Chicago, we …
  • The Lion Sleeps Tonight Lyrics & Video from The Lion King
    Innnn the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonigtttt…..A-weema-weh, a-weema-weh, a-weema-weh… This classic song is well known, but most don’t realize the name isn’t In the Jungle. Even if you ask Alexa for In the Jungle, she knows what song you mean but corrects you first: it’s called The Lion …
  • The Lion King – Lyrics and Video to Hakuna Matata
    The most charming song in the  1994’s beloved The Lion King is where Pumbaa, Timon, and Simba sing Hakuna Matata. Which means, as the meerkat and wildebeast cheerfully describe, “No worries.” A good philosophy…can you watch this scene without smiling? It’s pleasant, funny, and even meaningful — remember the iconic moment …
  • Movie Review – Toy Story 4
    Vera and I saw the movie together and collaborated on the Peetimes. We agreed that Toy Story 4 deserves an A. It has everything you could want: fun action for the kids, plenty of humor, especially with the two new toys Bunny and Ducky — voiced by Jordan Peele and …
  • Top Toy Story Adventures You May Have Missed
    Toy Story 4 is finally here.  Everyone knows and loves Buzz and Woody.  But do you remember the time Buzz got lost in the ball pit at Poultry Palace?  Or the time Rex held a rave in the bath tub? Or the creepy hotel where the toys started disappearing?  If …
  • Virgin Movie Review – Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009)
    I miss a lot of animated features working for RunPee, since that’s really RunPee Mom’s genre, and I see mostly science fiction, fantasy, and superhero blockbusters. So little gems like Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs from Sony’s Animation Studio frequently slip past my radar for years. I just caught …
  • Movie Review – The Secret Life of Pets 2
      So here is what I hope: The Secret Life of Pets becomes its own universe, much like the Minions, and we can continue to enjoy the antics of Max, Duke and Snowball. There’s so much story left to tell about these citified critters who can’t stop getting into mischief. And …
  • First View Movie Review – Jumanji (1995)
    Adoring as I do Jumanji 2: Welcome to the Jungle — my favorite film of 2017 — I looked forward to finally watching the original Jumanji with Robin Williams. My understanding was the game updates itself for its era, meaning the 1995  game would be a vintage style board game …
  • The Animated 1978 Godzilla Cartoon – Lyrics & Video
    Do you remember the old 1978 Hanna-Barbera  TV Godzilla cartoon that used to play during the Saturday morning children’s lineup? What I really remember liking was that it featured Godzilla as a hero. I I like that perspective a lot more than OMG BIG MONSTER MUST DIE. That’s part of the …
  • Movie Review – Aladdin (2019) – A Live Action Remake, Good for the Target Audience
    The 2019 live-action remake of Aladdin is a difficult movie to review, because I’m not the target audience — that’s mainly young kids. Personally, I found the movie to be occasionally entertaining at best, and barely tolerable for the rest. There were a few laughs here and there, and rarely …
  • Rewatch Review – Disney’s Animated Aladdin (1992) – A Classic Film with Deeply Modern Flaws
    The animated Aladdin of 1992 is a beloved Disney classic. It’s one of the great films of the Disney Renaissance Era, and features A Whole New World, a TOP EVER song of ever in the the Disney oeuvre. Yet parts of Aladdin are deeply problematic to modern audiences. Disney is …
  • A Whole New World – Aladdin Lyrics and Video (1992 Animated Version)
    Back in 1992, Aladdin charmed audiences with Disney’s usual blend of great animation, voice work, humor, casting, and a brand of cynicism-free earnestness typical of Disney’s Renaissance Era. Aladdin nests among the top rank of the films in this period, starting in 1998 with The Little Mermaid, and ending with …
  • Aladdin –  Animated vs Stage vs Live Action
    The Aladdin remake will be flying into theaters soon.  This will be Disney’s third version of this popular story, including the 2014 Broadway musical.  So how does it compare to its predecessors? Let’s find out. NOTE:  Aladdin article contains SPOILERS.   Aladdin Sidekicks In the animated film, Aladdin has a monkey pal …
  • Movie Review – UglyDolls – Best for toddlers, but a good message for all children
    Ugly Dolls is 87 minutes of bright color, almost constant motion, and singing — so much singing — which will make your toddler dizzy with delight. Parents will need to go to the nearest Starbucks for a jolt of caffeine before driving home. The theme of the movie — learning to …
  • Movie Review – Missing Link – Fun, will appeal to all ages
    Laika Animated Studios has given the fans another film to add to their collection of ‘Must See’ stop-motion movies. Hiring Zach Galifianakis as the voice of Susan, the missing link, was a stroke of genius. Even though Susan is a large, frightening creature, Zach provided a voice that took away the …
  • Dumbo – Lyrics and Video to the Original Disney Classic Song Baby Mine
    If you don’t mind a having a little cry, watch this original 1941 version of the scene where infant Dumbo is too briefly reunited with mother Jumbo, locked in chains for the crime of protecting her only baby. I can barely type this without tearing up, but it’s one of the …
  • Dumbo Review – The Original 1941 Animated Classic: High Time for a Remake
    The original 1941 Dumbo is a strange little movie. Not only is only an hour long (it’s almost a long “short”, if you get my meaning), but has many weird scenes of mostly padding (which would make for great Peetimes, BTW). It’s also…um…wildly racist (there’s no other way to say this, …
  • Movie Review – Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase
    Who would have thought that Nancy Drew would still be rocking it after 89 years? This new and improved version of Nancy Drew is perfect for the target audience of today’s prepubescent girl. The movie addresses bullying, body image hating, peer pressure, and the need to fit in as the new …
  • Zero Song – Video & Lyrics from Ralph Breaks the Internet
    Ralph Breaks the Internet, the lovable sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, plays almost like a Disney princess musical, which it kind of is, as an affectionate parody Disney surprisingly put forth in a very meta manner. (Disney having a sense of humor about themselves floored me in almost every way.) It’s pretty …
  • Movie Review – Alita: Battle Angel – Lighter, more Enjoyable than Ghost in the Shell
      Alita: Battle Angel is a sort of YA version of Ghost in the Shell, and I’m not exactly thrilled to see the same thing re-done in so short a period of time. At least this one was more enjoyable, with better humor, more likable characters, and a universe that might …
