  1. 'Alice in Wonderland': Still Brillig After All These Years

    by , 02-03-2011 at 10:35 PM (The Mouse Castle)

    Of the movies released during Disney's second "golden age" of animation, [I]Alice is Wonderland[/I] is my favorite. Lacking the warm, gooey center of [I]Cinderella[/I] or [I]One Hundred and One Dalmatians[/I], [I]Alice[/I] is the most non-Disney of Disney feature films, an episodic farce that piles gag upon gag in rapid succession. You don't invest any real emotion in the ...
  2. Of Disneyland Presidents and Breakfast Meat

    Gather a hundred or so hardcore Disney fans at Anaheim's ESPN Zone for breakfast, add appearances by two Disneyland presidents (the very first one and the current one) and you can be certain everyone will be leaving the event with one thing on their minds.

  5. Wilde About CES

    by , 01-08-2011 at 09:23 AM (The Mouse Castle)
    I'm at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, checking out the latest in high-tech gizmos and gadgets. CES is not only the best place to see what's new in 3D TV's, tablet computers and smartphones, it's also a great place to spot a celebrity or two. Appearing at the Blackberry booth yesterday was none other than fanboy fantasy girl Olivia Wilde, the gal pal program Quorra in [I]Tron: Legacy[/I].
