Original movie reviews untainted by time!

  • I like Harlem Nights as a guilty pleasure, don’t care what anybody says.

    • And I don’t give a shit about The Little Mermaid, btw.

  • They’ve always liked Disney’s animated features prior to The Disney Renaissance, but ever since Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast have come out, their Disney fanboyism further increases but for different reasons, since Gene clearly has a pro Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast bias while Roger is more forgiving when Disney stumbles.

  • Here’s a funny thing about The Little Mermaid. I agree with their review, except that I actually have mixed feelings to Areil, mostly because of her lacking actual character development. You think after all of the consequences she unintentionally caused, you think she would learn her lesson and accept that Areil and Prince Eric can’t be together. But no, the film has to have a happy ending designed to make the film more appealing to a family audience. It’s like that 1985 gambling movie they panned called Fever Pitch, except I’m completely comparing different movies that somewhat sells bad messages to the audience.
