The Little Mermaid Three-Disc Diamond Edition (Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD + Digital Copy + Music) is Here!

When I was about 9, I will never forget my mom taking me to see The Little Mermaid in the movie theater. That movie rocked my world! I wanted to be Ariel (come on, we all did!). I think I saw it in the movies at least 5 times and I watched the VHS so many times I literally wore the tape out! In addition to knowing all of the songs by heart (and singing … Read entire article »

Disney’s Frankenweenie: Kids Movie Review

Disney’s Frankenweenie: Kids Movie Review

  I recently had the opportunity to snuggle up with my 4 year old and check out Tim Burton’s newest movie creation: Frankenweenie. Tim Burton is well known for being wildly creative and a little offbeat. From Edward Scissorhands to Alice in Wonderland, Burton does a great job of drawing you into a story, resounding with characters and entertaining all of your senses.  Frankenweenie does exactly that! I love that Frankenweenie is a play on the classic monster movies I watched growing … Read entire article »

Disney’s John Carter 3D Blu-Ray Review

Disney’s John Carter 3D Blu-Ray Review

Disney recently sent me a copy of their John Carter Blu-Ray, in 3D. As I hadn’t seen the movie in theatres, I was excited to watch it at home and see what kind of movie magic can happen with a $250 million+ budget! Disney took on the very daunting task of adapting sci-fi icon Edgar Rice Burroughs’ 1917 novel, A Princess of Mars. There’s no way around it, this plot-line is very complicated. My 4 year old enjoyed … Read entire article »

Ahoy…It’s a Pirate Christmas on Disney Junior

Little girls adore the Disney Princesses, and I was no exception. I have so many fond memories of watching Disney movies with my mom. In fact, when I found out I was having a boy, I actually remembering thinking that it was a shame I wouldn’t be able to share my love of Disney with him. Now I’m a mom to two boys, and I’ve discovered that Disney has just as much to offer boys … Read entire article »

Mars Needs Moms Movie Review

Mars Needs Moms Movie Review

Mars Needs Moms, Disney’s newest movie, opens on March 11, 2011.  Disney invited Mamanista to a special preview of the movie last weekend, and it didn’t disappoint. Nine-year-old Milo’s mom bugs him to take out the trash and eat his broccoli. As punishment for disobeying her, he’s sent to his room instead of watching a favorite movie on TV. And he hurtfully tells his mom that his life would be better off without her. Moms can relate. … Read entire article »

Disney’s Tangled Movie Review

Disney’s Tangled Movie Review

On Saturday, I was invited to an advanced screening of Disney’s Tangled, which opens everywhere on November 24th. I’m probably not the most objective critic since I’ve been a Disney fan since the age of three when I first fell in love with their animated movies at a special screening of Snow White. Since I’m a sucker for Disney films, I took two very sophisticated critics with me to the screening: my 11 and 12 year … Read entire article »
