    "I can't explain how much I've fallen in love with Wall-E!!! He's such a dedicated robot. I particularly like the scene when he tended to that robot who needed to hibernate for some time. It's so touching really."

    "My family loves all of these movies, and this one is just as good as the rest. Usually the third movie in a series doesn't hold up to the rest, but this is a great conclusion to what could be considered a trilogy since they haven't made any more since."


Did you know that Walt Disney still holds the record for winning the most Academy Awards? Out of the 59 Oscars nominations, he won 26 of them. No wonder people consider Disney an Academy darling of all time. Due to the success of The Walt Disney Company, people seem to think that it had no pitfalls at all. The truth is, it wasn't and it hasn't been a smooth-sailing journey at all. Before they were able to produce those Oscar-winning animated films, Disney took out multiple loans to finance his first ever animate movie--Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Just when Disney and his wife thought it was going to be a bomb, they ended up mortgaging their own house to finance the movie. But it was all worth it! Snow White was the first ever film to ever release a movie soundtrack. Yet, recently, the motion-picture production company once again made a hallmark in the film industry. The Beauty and the Beast (2017) became the first ever animated film feature to be nominated for Best Picture Award!

On a related note, talking about who won the most Oscars ever would be incomplete without Meryl Streep being one of the subjects. While Disney is dubbed the Academy darling, Streep still holds the crown for garnering the most number of nominations ever. Be it a comedy, drama, or musical, Streep has truly owned every character she had in all her Oscar-winning movies!

    "Shrek is a great movie, poking fun at itself as well as it's characters. THe best thing about Shrek is that there's a lot of in jokes and adult references that kids will totally miss but adult viewers will really appreciate. One of the classic animated movies of the time period."

    "This was a cute movie, typical of the Disney/Pixar brand. It is my daughters favorite - sometimes she'll watch it three times in a single day. If that is any indication, the movie gets five stars from us."

    "This is one of my favorite Disney movies of ALL time....and thats an understatement because I am Disney obsessed! The biggest questions is Who doesn't love Nemo? This is a great go-to movie to watch as a family. Lots of humor for everyone to appreciate...Honestly, I'm not one to like many movies, and animated movies even less. I'd much rather read a book than watch a movie. But I have to admit this is a favorite of mine. Ellen DeGeneres totally makes the whole movie with her ditsy character. Somehow I can even envision her in the sound booth speaking into a mic with her facial expression as she speaks Dory's lines."

    "Okay, so I have a son and Frozen wasn't exactly his thing. He refused to watch it when it first came out, therefore I thought I'd never have a reason to see it. It just so happened that his teacher at school decided to show it for movie day and my son watched it. Surprise, surprise... he really loved the movie! We watched it again together and I have to say... Im pretty happy with he film too. It has a positive image of girl self esteem, but it also has valuable moral lessons for boys too. I think its a great movie and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone with kids."
