Isn't that the sassiest goldfish you've ever seen?
So pretty much, this YouTuber who posted these videos has an amazing camera. Go to their channel to see a lot more Disney vids!
Just for giggles:
Ah, the old Disneyland of my childhood. How I miss you.
PS: Sorry about the lack of movie posting. My DVD player on my computer is broken, and that has slowed down my movie-watching abilities...
R.I.P. Michael Jackson
The Absent Minded Professor is about a chemistry professor named Ned Brainard who invents a type of rubber that defies gravity, gaining more energy as it bounces instead of losing it. However, the explosion that created the "flubber" also knocked him out, causing him to miss his own wedding... for the third time. Professor Brainard is convinced that his new discovery will win him back Betsy (his fiancee), help save Medfield College, and help change the world. However, Alonzo Hawk, a jerk businessman, accidentally sees Professor Brainard flying his Model T and steals his car. This results in Professor Brainard and Betsy teaming up together, taking the car back, and taking a flying flubber-filled adventure to Washington D.C.
If you'd like to see a small clip of the movie, click HERE. Unfortunately, that's the only clip I could find that was related to this movie. It's quite a shame, because the movie is really good! I liked the main actor, Fred MacMurray--who has starred in some other older Disney movies. Also, upon doing some highly advanced research (AKA a 3-second search on Google), I found out that the Medfield fight song is the first song that the Sherman Brothers wrote for Disney! Boy, they've come a long way...
After watching this, I don't know how I'm going to watch the Robin Williams version!
The Little Mermaid Attraction!
I'm so excited for this attraction! Finally, DCA can look Disneyland in the eye and say, "I CAN BE A THEME PARK TOO!" Don't get me wrong--I love DCA. I've spent many days talking to Crush (my absolute favorite attraction), popping balloons in Midway Mania, and filling myself full of free tortillas. Whenever Disneyland is crowded and tourist-packed (see last week's spotlight), my friends and I always go straight on over to DCA and have fun! However, it takes a true Disney fan to overlook DCA's flaws. I'm really excited for the new and improved DCA, but I will always remember the original... *looks thoughtfully into the distance*
What a fun ride! But really, that is one scary Ursula.
Change is good... but I'm gonna get my fill of the DCA I know and love while it's still here!
PS: Can you find the hidden mickey in the first picture?
How, do you ask, did I already watch Princess Protection Program (scheduled to come out this Friday)? Well, Bob Iger himself invited me to a special screening... Okay, Okay. It was on YouTube. Sadly, the video has already been removed and I'm just lucky I got to it in time!
The movie stars Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato, who are best friends *insert girlish squeal here* in real life. Selena Gomez plays Carter, a tomboy from Louisiana who helps her father run a small bait shop. Demi Lovato plays Princess Rosalinda, a princess of the small island Costa Luna. Carter's father is a special agent in the Princess Protection Program, which is a secret program made to protect princesses whose safety is being threatened. Here's the kicker (cause I know you're on the edge of your seats...): Princess Rosalinda will only trust Carter's dad, so she goes to Louisiana and consequently turns Carter's life upside down... and helps her find her "Inner Princess". You can pretty much figure out the plot from there.
Surprisingly, I sat through the whole movie without complaining. The actors actually ACT, which is unheard of in modern DCOM times. Although, I was slightly creeped out that Jamie Chung, the actress who plays Chelsea, is 26! That's pushing it for someone playing a high-schooler. Also, I wonder why they didn't develop the character relationships a bit more. Carter's best friend, Ed, is madly in love with her and he didn't really get his happy ending. Not even a single dance at homecoming! I'm crying, really.
You and every other teenybopper out there can watch Princess Protection Program on June 26th, this Friday, on Disney Channel.
But I don't have to! HAHA!
Indiana Jones' Adventure
Alright, let's try to do this post without hyperventilating...
So this is Disney/Pixar's (or as I accidentally called it, Pixey...) 10th film. It's obvious that UP has a way more adult feel. Actually, even though the movie ended on a happy note, the whole mood was a bit somber. I think as the movie progresses, it gets happier. Right in the beginning you get hit with an emotional montage of Carl's life with his late wife Ellie. Fueled by his desire to fufill his and Ellie's wishes, he sets off on a grand adventure to a far-off land in South America. His sidekick is a wilderness explorer named Russell, an exotic bird named Kevin, and Dug, who is the cutest dog EVER.
Dug is right up there in my favorite-Disney-characters-of-all-time list. I want a dog just like him! He sold the movie for me.
Characters aside, UP has a great plot--and even though it is a bit sad, it is still an amazing film and I think you should watch it! Now the question is... 2D or 3D?
DISNEY GEEKOUT TIME:
In D/P's Ratatouille, as Remy is trying to find food after getting separated from his family, look at the shadow of the dog barking (around 0:51 in this clip). Notice something... familiar? I love how they give us little "easter eggs" and we don't even know it!
Look for a shadow of Dug at 0:51!!
UPdate: Look at the beautiful color script!
I love You Tube because it holds so many Disney treasures. You don't want to know how much time I waste watching Disney-related You Tube videos...
Anyways, the spotlight for this week is this 10-part special about Disney's ownage at the Oscars. Enjoy!
Who's the boss now, Tony Danza?
