Once again, the musical ‘Hamilton’ is sweeping across pop culture throughout our nation. The hit musical, which first was seen exclusively on Broadway, can now be seen from the comforts of your home through the magic of Disney+. (By the way, what I say ‘our nation’ I am speaking of my own, that is the USA, if you are outside of the States, and I know some of you are, hello! I am glad you’re here! Is Hamilton as big as a hit outside of the States?)
While Hamilton, due to some of its themes and language, may not be the most family friendly musical to watch in Disney’s streaming service, it is nevertheless a beautiful and powerful story of ambition, tragedy, as well as forgiveness. My intention is to briefly point out a few of the themes I noticed in the musical that I think make it one of a kind.
Since the musical has already been streaming for over a week, there will be a few spoilers in this post, so if you still haven’t seen it yet I recommend watching it first before reading. If you have already seen it, and don’t care for hearing major spoilers, by all means, continue reading below.
Pixar’s latest movie “Onward” has found a new home on Disney+ after its short run in theaters. Onward’s exit to the smaller screen is not because it is a lackluster movie, but rather due to the current and unfortunate state of our world. While I would have loved to see this movie in theaters, I am extremely thankful that Disney released it on Disney+ early. For anyone itching to see something new during this time of Social Distancing, I think Onward will satisfy.
What follows is my short, mostly SPOILER FREE review! I will include a section at the end with spoilers, but, don’t worry, I’ll giving you plenty of room to get out of here before hand! Have you seen Pixar’s Onward? If so, what are you thoughts? Feel free to share it in the comments below!
You might have heard: Star Wars The Clone Wars is back!
Thats right! The greatest animated show ever, has returned to TV (err, Disney+).
Words cannot express how important this series is to me. When I was nearing the end of elementry school, I heard of this new series called “The Clone Wars.” I wasn’t a Star Wars fan at that time but I loved cartoons. Never did I know that this little show would help transform my love for both Star Wars as well as storytelling.
This short blog post is a prelude to a three part series I plan on writing. Part one is already written and should be released later this week. I am very excited that the Clone Wars is back, and have been thoughly enjoying the final season. I hope to share a bit of that enjoyment with you! But perhaps I should explain why I, and so many other Star Wars fans, love The Clone Wars.
Recently I watched Frozen 2 with a large group of friends (which was amazing) and I really wanted to write a post about it. Instead of doing a full review, this time I figured I’d save myself (and in turn, you) some time and write five short observations that I had while watching the movie. I’ve never exactly done this before, so I guess you could say I’m taking a step “into the unknown.”
