I think you were unnecessarily harsh on The Good Dinosaur. I went in with extremely low expectations, but there is a lot there to like, and it is very affecting for parents.

I just read your The Jungle Book (2016) review. Cinderella (2015) WAS REMARKABLE! I think it was better than The Jungle Book (2016). You didn't seem to think much of The Jungle Book (2016) though, and I thought it was pretty good and better than the original Disney film. I don't think the original is one of Disney's best. It seems you like it because it's so...fun? And probably because it focused so much on animals...

You know, after thinking about it, I think the original Walt Disney animated The Jungle Book is the better film. I think it has a better story. Also, just like you probably are inclined towards movies more featuring males and animals, I'm inclined towards films that have magic.

I also think the original animated Jungle Book had, importantly, more emotion, too.

I am glad you thought 10 Cloverfield Lane was so good. I thought it was a very great movie! John Goodman was super creepy, wasn't he? He was really good. Wasn't expecting his performance. I felt really bad for poor Emmett...

You know, I don't think Snow White cooking and cleaning is really bad. Who cares that she did typical housewife duties to earn her living? It wouldn't matter if she had to mine like the other dwarfs to earn her living, it's still all earning a living. And it's obvious the men eventually keep her with them because they love her. And who cares if she was naive enough to fall to the queen's trickery? And so what if she dreamed of a better life with the man she loved in "Someday My Prince Will Come"? I suppose the only thing she could have done was get a horse and travel all over to find him. That's the only regressive thing I can think about her.

Luke, are you going to review Beauty and the Beast: The Walt Disney Signature Edition and all of the other Walt Disney Signature Editions?

Hey Luke, I read your Beauty and the Beast (2017) review. I liked that you think the film is good and worth seeing, and I agree. However I would say a lot of the things you said, about no déjà vu, no cynical reason to make it only for money, and making a rich, vast, believable three-dimensional universe to apply to Cinderella (2015) and The Jungle Book (2016). I actually feel Beauty and the Beast had more déjà vu, which I'm surprised you didn't think since this is the Disnye live-action film closest to it's animated source material. I also feel Lily James should have gotten into the "Best Actress - Motion Picture Comedy or Musical" category if Emma Wtason ever were to, since I felt more for Lily Jame's acting than Emma Watson's. Also, yea the Beast probably should have been make-up and prosthetics.

I read your Countdown of the Films of 2016: Ranked and Reviewed. I am surprised you said Florence Foster Jenkins was "one iffy joke stretched thin". I found the film to be about a woman's dream that failed, not a joke, and that it was a very good film. I liked Lights Out a lot more, too, though yea, it wasn't super good. I actually rather liked Sausage Party as well and found it funny. I did like Zoolander 2, but yea, it wasn't very good. I found Alice Through the Looking Glass to be way worse than its sequel. I didn't consider Ghostbusters to be a remake, but I guess it was, and I thought it was fairly good, but yea, not that good. I really liked Now You See Me 2 as you must have. I think Moonlight should have been much higher in your countdown, but Moonlight, Finding Dory, and your top three picks are really good ones and deserve to be in the top. I must say your last three picks seem to be in about the perfect spots.

The video and audio sections of the site's reviews need a little bit more meat. I remember a time when I used to depend on the wisdom imparted in that subsection in deciding whether to buy the barebones, special edition or slap-in-the-face edition DVD titles from Disney.

Just thinking of all the passionate complaining I put forth permanently on the blessed internet in reaction to the poor video on the Disney Rarities set brings tears to my eye. *sniff*

Hey Luke, I liked your It review! Since I have seen the TV miniseries (on VHS), I will say that seemed to have more character development, but yes, the characters of this film are more well-written than horror movies usually give us. It just seemed to not match up to the miniseries (the part where they are kids of course). I also didn't know you thought Sully was so good. I thought it was a'ight. But yea I thought your review of It was quite good. I really liked the film and can't wait for the next chapter.
