In honor of the release of The Lion King (2019), we returned to the sparse memory of the new obsession imagined by Disney to research what projects were worth and not worth all the time, effort and nostalgia.
FYI: Movies away, like Mary Poppins is back (2018), and remakes of Disney classics that were largely already live-action, like Pete's Dragon (2016), were excluded. Enjoy!
At first glance, filmmaker Tim Burton and author Lewis Carroll look like a match of paradise. Unfortunately, as both of Burton Alice Illustrated films, this is really not the case.
Interminably cynical, Burton Alice in Wonderland transforms a beloved adventure so far into a rabbit terrier into a tale of Joan of Arc that sucks all the pleasure of a world of talking cats. The stars Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway and Johnny Depp offer generally excellent performances, without however marveling the comic strips by adhering to the bitter tone of the film.
Although the costumes and the artistic direction awarded at the Oscars are quite pleasant, Alice in Wonderland remains an excellent example of why some classics are best left alone.
Tim Burton's sequel Alice in Wonderland ranks higher on our list, if only because it doubles its boring qualities with remarkable bravery.
With a vibrant color palette, Alice through the mirror Try to be more than your predecessor – but when you travel and make a strange wink at the sexist medical practices of Victorian England, everything is like being crazy.
If the disappointing box office of the film was due to scandal Around his star Johnny Depp or his generally unbearable nature is hard to say. Anyway, Alice through the mirror was a failure for both Disney and his audience.
Tim Burton takes Dumbo was not as exhausting as his two Alice in Wonderland projects, but he was likewise self-indulgent.
A host of persistent photos of the adorable baby Dumbo moaning for his mother and bursting out big tears the size of an elephant, Dumbo (2019) plays more like an ASPCA campaign from the vaudeville era than a children's movie. As Angie Han from Mashable Note that it is not that the kindness of Dumbo is a problem in itself, but it is often the impression of being abused in a film without having to do anything else.
Yes, some parts of this uneven remake – namely all the schtick of Michael Keaton and Colin Farrell-ness of everything – are quite pleasant. Unfortunately, overall, the project failed to prove that the refurbishment of a 77-year-old classic was worth the effort.
Technically speaking, Christopher Robin is a sequel to Disney's original Winnie the Pooh movies – not a remake of them. But this is the first time that busy residents of Hundred Acre Wood are receiving live action treatment and we are allowing them to feature (albeit a low spot) in our rankings.
A less magical Hook scam Christopher Robin follows the return of an adult Christopher to his fantasies of childhood. Star Ewan McGregor does his best to keep the wobbly story on track, but it's the incomparable Winnie, voiced by Jim Cummings, who steals the show.
Delivering a dazzling dialogue of laughter with nostalgic perfection, Pooh is exactly what you remembered. It's the saving grace of a film that often feels forced – even to the point that we look Christopher Robin again, if only to play another round of "Say what you see".
The beauty and the Beast just try a little too hard.
Featuring the exceptional cast of Emma Watson, this remake of 2017 attempts to tell this "tale of the past" with tons of backstory, new characters, a cast of stars, a kind of genre (not the all) LGBTQ including subplotand a unique rich visual style, unlike any Disney princess movie.
Unfortunately, these many efforts tend to blur the story of Beauty and the Beast rather than elevate it. There are times when the current fantasy is worth the price of entry – namely Watson's staircase appearance in what is a yellow version of the dress worn by Hermione Granger at the Christmas ball . But overall, this is not particularly memorable.
With an operating time greater than two hours, The beauty and the Beast (2017) is undoubtedly more of the story that you come to know and love. But, like Mashable's Angie Han Explainit does not make it more magical.
When images of a nauseating Will Smith blue appeared on the Web in February, we feared the worst. But, as it turns out, Aladdin (2019) is not so bad.
While genius has remained a low point in the final form of the film, the stars Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott – both found through an international casting search – are breathtaking as Disney's unlikely unlikely couple. Nail each nuance of character with a few definite improvements written for Jasmine of Scott, these two characters go through the film as many traps as they can.
Unfortunately, the under-sought musical numbers in the film prevent the duo from reaching its true grandeur. Reflecting on Aladdinlack of dance numbers worthy of Bollywood, Masa Proma Khosla "It is disappointing to see that, in an attempt to pay tribute to the traditions of oriental dance, Aladdin chose to go on the So you think you can dance and mitigate these forms of art until the West recognizes them already. "
Better than expected, but still not as good as the original, Aladdin is good – but not the Agrabah royalty.
The Lion King is not bad in itself, but it is a struggle to overcome one's fear of failure.
A constantly faithful reconstruction of the masterpiece of 1994, that of Jon Favreau on the Saharian plateau Hamlet s' hangs at its source – offering only the superb photorealistic animation style as justification for its creation.
Yes, the world of digitally rendered Pride Lands is a technical triumph and the voice played by its starred actors is largely enjoyable. But like Mashable's Angie Han written"None of this comes down to anything new or vital, the remake does not deepen our understanding of these characters, this story, this world, significantly."
Without a doubt the most tedious of the films on this list, The Lion King cherishes the kings who preceded him like no other, but fails to win a throne of his own making.
When the time has come for Disney to repeat the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty, They did not just do everything live. Instead, they told the story from the point of view of its iconic villain – a decision that has re-imagined one of Disney's best to date.
Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning play the roles of Maleficent and Aurora, but their characters still stand between them, but for far more complicated reasons than it seemed there. Oozing with style, Maleficent creates a dark world that is similar to the realm seen in the original Sleeping Beautybut with a dark texture and a slippery personality all its own.
Part of the sequel, a remake party, this Disney tour is both enjoyable as a standalone and as an extension of the original animation. And this suite, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil? We could not be more ready for that.
Many advocates of Disney's live-action remake have argued that re-creating classic movies can help introduce older stories to new audiences. Jungle book is the one who actually does that.
Director Jon Favreau has managed to turn one of Disney's least-known commodity products into a high-end selection for 2016 kids, realizing the adventure of the Mowgli jungle in its most cinematic . Telling the story of a child befriending animals in the real world gave him the impression of being both more thoughtful, more terrifying and more adventurous.
Neel Sethi shines in the role of the young hero, while Idris Elba and Bill Murray shine in the role of Shere Khan and Baloo. It took a second to animate all this animal fur, The jungle Book is a new kind of classic
Published in 1956, Dodie Smith's timeless story about fleeing puppies has always been endearing, but Disney's live-action campy remake has made it a full-fledged movie. event.
Featuring the fabulous fabulous Glenn Close as Cruella de Vil, this 101 Dalmatians Transplanting the characters from the original animated feature into a stylish world of London madness. De Vil, now a world-renowned fashionista, tackles every scene with a sinister force, her superb black and white suit almost as iconic as her.
More sensitive to the comic style of the late 90s, this remake is struggling to hold up today while the second half returns to a heavy mess. But Close, whose role as De Vil earned him a Golden Globe nomination, more than makes up for his outstanding line deliveries.
Worth the detour, 101 Dalmatians (1996) is a proof of concept that Disney animated remakes can work.
Narrated and narrated by countless studios and creators, the story of Cinderella's encounter with Prince Charming at the ball is as classic as possible. So it's no wonder this is the only live remake that Disney has managed to do completely.
With Lily James, Cate Blanchett and Richard Madden, Cinderella (2015) honors the masterfully created images of the original film – including an exquisite rendering of this sky blue shirt – while expanding the central plot and characters to make the fantasy more heartfelt.
Fill a fairy tale with real people, Cinderella is all that one can wish for a dream reinvented child. If only he came with glass slippers.

Avengers: End of the game is jam-packed with amazing moments that will make all Marvel fans cheer, cry, cry or wield their headscarves in the air before remembering you're in a packed crowded theater (sorry, man).
Choosing our favorite moments was as difficult as choosing our favorite MCU movies (I do not care about Iron Man 2), but we landed at eleven moments that made us lose at the theater.
We can not alone in the collective breath that shook the theater when Thor cut Thanos's head cleanly in less than 15 minutes in the film. More than anything, it tells what Thor lived: losing his mother, his father, his brother, his best friend and all civilization in such a fast succession (when Game over begins, the events of Ragnarok were barely a month ago).
Thor can no longer bear any suffering, let alone hear his pontificate from the author of what looks like Shrek's hut. It's a shocking twist that immediately throws everything we expected from this movie through the window.
We had evidence that Tony Stark had a heart many years ago, but seeing it start with Pepper and Lil bb Morgan was exceptionally moving. Always selfish (even with Pepper), Tony has, for the first time, something that places him beyond his personal interests.
All the trip back to the Battle of New York was a fan service sent by God for Captain America's intrans, and we drank it in the water, because we are thirsty like l & rsquo; # 39; hell.
First, Cape entered the elevator with his former enemies Hydra, plagued by tension to recreate the iconic Winter soldier fight scene. Instead of that, Game over subvert this superbly, adding a cheeky reference to Cape & # 39; s before a cap-on-cap capfight complete with The first avenger"I could do it all day", references to Peggy and Bucky and Cape admiring his own perfect later.
For all his science fiction action, Game over also does a great job of heavy emotional scenes with only one or two people. The most powerful of these scenes do not even need dialogue.
Cape sneaks through an unlocked door while hiding from suspicious S.H.I.E.L.D. members and finds a picture of himself skinny looking at him from the office. The realization is coming to light (for him and for us), and as he looks up to see Peggy through the glass.
The rules of time travel do not forbid him to approach, but he is in the middle of a time and would be dead, so that any contact is out of the question. So I stayed there, unbearably close to the love of his life – close enough to call or call him, to cross and kiss him, but he can not.
It is easy to write Thor: The world of darkness one of Marvel's most forgiving suites, but the death of Thor's mother, Freya, in the hands of the dark elves is the first big death of his family he attended. Game over Thor's sorrow of losing his family by taking stockWar of Infinity Thor – depressed, alcoholic and cowardly – a chance to say hello and goodbye to the mom I loved so much.
Between her excellent advice and her magical hugs, Freya did what the mothers do best and put her back on the path of heroism. And put myself personally on the way to cry openly to the theater. I like my mother a lot, okay?
Leave to Game over turn to joke joke Age of Ultron in one of the greatest moments "oh shit" of the MCU ever.
Thor's Mjolnir and Stormbreaker were awesome in themselves, but the fact that Captain America came to pull himself together and save Thor's life in throw an abandoned Mjolnir to this head… phew Steve Rogers is no longer the good guy who could barely move Thor's hammer to the Avengers Tower; he is now capital-w-worthy.
This moment was further improved when Thor realized that Steve had passed the Mjolnir test. the look on his face was pure joy, pride and admiration. "It's my friend Steve," thought Thor, "is not he the best?"
In a sequence reminiscent of the unique take on the Battle of New York, the new Infinity Gauntlet has gone from Hawkeye to Black Panther, to Spider-Man, to Captain Marvel. The original Avengers literally handed the challenge to the new ones, thus securing the future of the MCU, and then sent him back to Iron Man so he could say goodbye.
I love Sam Wilson tremendously. When The winter soldier Open with Sam running along the Potomac, his sense of humor and true friendship were reflected in the performance of Anthony Mackie. The frequent warnings of Cape Town in this opening scene – "on your left!" – have brought the characters to become friends and partners.
So, hearing Sam finally get to ride Steve for eleven before flying heroically through the portal to fight the battle of Upstate was a lovely reminder of their first meeting. It was also at this point that Cape realized that Hulk's photo was really working, and the joy I felt seeing Sam again was one of Game overThe most powerful moments. Add to that Cape's decision to pass the shield to Sam and many people (especially me) are crying over the power of friendship.
We have panicked for most of this battle, since the huge "Avengers assembles" and other times on this list, but we were greeted with enthusiasm by the sight of every woman fighting the MCU banding together to help Captain Marvel to take up the challenge. Security is bittersweet not to have Black Widow out there, but we know she could not be more proud.
Thor really experienced some experiences in his day as a prince and later king of Asgard. I lost his family, his planet, my friends, my goal … and somewhere along the way, I lost my way.
Abandoning his throne at the end of Game over It was certainly the right thing to do for him, but giving way to Valkyrie, who had suffered the same fate of loss and redemption, was a poignant decision that expressed the idea that leadership belonged to those who earned. Asgard now turns to Valkyrie, the black hero of the Asgardians who came back to save his people when it mattered most. Long live the Queen!
Just when the sacrifice of Iron Man could not be sadder, Game over thrown into a scene between Happy Hogan and Morgan Stark to further damage my feelings. The management of Jon Favreau was a huge part of Iron ManHis success and his dual role as Happy were one of the most enjoyable goals of the MCU: so seeing Tony's daughter comfort Tony's Tony is like the MCU who gives him his flowers to be the director who launched this stupid story. Favreau took care of Tony. It is Happy's turn to take care of Morgan.
Avengers: End of the game is now in theaters.
