Among the top Disney/PIXAR films Toy Story 4 adds a new chapter that will take you on an unexpected adventure about friendships, courage and even a major romance. The film Toy Story 4 continues with the whole gang and some new toys that find themselves on a trail that puts them in danger like never before.

Walt Disney’s Live Action “Aladdin” on Blu-ray

Review by Susan Phillips

An exciting adventure Disney doesn’t disappoint bringing the story of Aladdin to the big screen in this live action version. And now that it’s on Blu-ray I found it just as stunning in the privacy of our own home. If you saw the tale years ago as an animated feature then you know the adventure, the comedy and the romance. But, there are some Hollywood changes, CGI special effects and a whole new live action cast. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Flying in on the magic carpet and joining the Disney’s Signature Collection on Blu-ray is the fun animated film Aladdin. The film originally was released in 1992 and is still a favorite of youngsters. Whether you are a collector of the Disney treasure trove of animated classics or not, this 27 year old gem still entertains the youngest to pre-teen and young at heart. The music is very memorable and the comedy with Robin Williams as the Genie a fun adventure. Read more…

“Star Wars: Resistance Season 1” on DVD Teen View

Teen Review by Ian Delia

Who would’ve thought an animated TV show could be this good? Star Wars has always had a big place in my heart and definitely still does. If you still have questions about what happened between episode 6 Return of the Jedi and episode 7 The Force Awakens then you are going to need to watch this television series. It may have the age appropriate rating of “TV-Y7″ but that never means it’s not excellent or unimportant. In fact I think this is crucial to the whole aspect of what goes on with and how the First Order comes to be. First off this show is amazing and second of all, everything is now settling in my mind because it answers all the questions I’ve had since the time gap between episodes 6 and 7. Read more…

“Avengers: Endgame” the Retaliation Begins

Review by John Delia

As the final chapter concludes, it’s good bye to the superhero battalion and one of their masterful powerhouses. Now, I do know this in mind and heart, that the Marvel live action characters were extremely good as a team and on their own. While we THINK they will never work together in the future, let’s not forget that the actors who portrayed them may get bored sitting around for another role to play and then what? There are so many other baddies out there in space, even Captain Marvel states that on film. So my guess is look for some single Marvel character films, before the screams for an assembly are so loud that the studio will cave-in to another Avengers. Read more…

“Descendants 3” Electrifying Energy

Review by John Delia

Showcasing song and dance the Descendants 3 mixes wicked fun with adventure. Disney’s evil villains are up for the task in this third episode that is high on the list for teens and tweens. Not your average TV production, the story moves along at a fast pace with some of the outlandish of costumes and persona’s that dazzle. Dance moves are very modern and tell the tale with excitement and thrills. Read more…

“Dumbo” Flies onto Blu-ray

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Walt Disney’s Dumbo, an animated hit that was released in 1941, got its live action screen debut this year on the big screen nearly 78 years later and it’s a winner. Now on Blu-ray and other media for the first time, the film brings all the adventure into your living room. Still with a good measure of CGI, Dumbo tells the same adventurous story, but with some new twists. The message plays out as clear as the original film showing that everyone may not be perfect, but has a place in the world. Read more…
