George and Harold: cheeky pranksters (it’s in their genes).
Crabby Krupp wants to catch them by any means.
It drags at times, but at its best
When subversive jokes are expressed.
I’d certainly have welcomed some more Edith scenes.
Tim’s happy, until little bro comes through the door …
The ensuing story could have been so much more.
The film’s not much of a hoot,
Though the Looney Tunes-ish look is cute,
And there’s a sweet nod to The Apartment‘s 19th floor.
Though not hitting its fab predecessor’s heights,
It still boasts a fair share of delights.
Ultra rapid-fire gags
(With no grace for brain lags) …
And fun visuals (look how Condiment Man fights!)
Young Félicie, in an orphanage in France,
Has one heartfelt dream: to dance.
A lovely story of persistence
In the face of resistance,
As we see her fight for her chance.
Young Moana: for future Chief role, she’s groomed.
But new problems mean her island might be doomed.
The film’s an inspiring creation:
Delightful story, songs, animation …
And displays of bravery and grit when problems loomed.
In a bustling Autumn-time New York City,
Owners are clueless re what puppy or kitty
Get up to when out of sight.
The story, sadly, is pretty trite.
One highlight: sausage factory song (so witty!)
Exquisite score (both majestic and tight).
A fable beautifully animated (oh the light!) …
Not a work spoken,
And senses are awoken.
From Baby Dory’s eyes to Hank’s version of ranting,
It’s full of delights. Also, expertly implanting
Messages re: disability; inclusion.
Many visual treats? Yes, a profusion.
It’s a sequel that’s quite charming and enchanting.
Owen: unable to communicate with his fam.
Then a Disney revelation, and WHAM! …
There opens a door
And the chance to soar.
Exceptional doco about an extraordinary young man.
Favreau’s gorgeous film doesn’t shy away
From portraying the brutal nature fray.
(Kipling: the source material)
The visuals: ethereal.
Great family film. Spot-on casting in every way.
