Beauty and the Beast the Enchanted Christmas (1997) Review

“WHO DISTURBES MY CHRISTMAS !!!”

BATBXmasTitleDo you remember that cute scene in Beauty and the Beast where Belle and the Beast played in the snow and started to fall in love with each other?

Do you wonder or even care about what else happened on that cold winter day?

Me neither but Disney wants more money so in 1997 they made up a load of nonsense and chucked it on a VHS tape for the whole family to enjoy.

The Story to the Enchanted Christmas is that a Pipe Organ called Forte (Voiced by Tim Curry) is mad at Belle because she is stealing his Master who only now appreciates Forte’s music after the enchantress cast the Beasts curse, Forte’s music helps to soothe the Beasts pain caused by this event

Yes that’s right we went from one of the greatest villains ever made (Gaston) to a magic Pipe Organ.

Belle tries to teach the Beast about the magic of Christmas but this saddens him because it was on Christmas eve that he was cursed and Christmas only reminds him of his old ways.

Forte hears of this and he tricks Belle into leaving the Castle to find a Christmas tree in the Black Forest, Forte tells the Beast and this makes him mad so he runs off to find and scald Belle

Belle dying

Will Belle ever be found by the Beast?

Will the Evil Forte be stopped?

Will the Beast ever love Christmas?

Do you care?

No of course you don’t because its ridiculous and that’s where all of the movies problems begin, the plot is dumb and doesn’t make any sense at all because all of the events in this film are never mentioned in the original movie so its like they never happened, Tim Curry is annoying and so is everyone else I couldn’t even stand Belle in this film and shes my favorite Disney Character of all time, the animation is no where near up to par with the quality of the animation in the first movie, the songs have terrible lyrics and again are very annoying, when the characters talk the animation is out of sync with the dialogue, all of the new characters are boring and pointless but I will admit that the axe was kind of cool and finally it is so obvious that this was only made as a quick cash grab for Disney.

Beauty and the Beast the Enchanted Christmas is a revolting mess of a film, its an insult to the original movie and in some way it has slightly ruined it for me because now every time I see the winter scene I just know that this piece of crap is apparently going to happen even if I cant see it.

It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas (2002) Review

51Brso8590L

It’s  Christmas Eve and an evil business woman is going to legally own the Muppet Theater if Kermit and his friends cant raise enough money to pay off the Theater’s loan.

This movie is brilliant and not in the sense that its a perfect movie but more to do with the films premise, for those who are unaware this film is a Muppet’s version of It’s a Wonderful life.

Of course its not as dark and depressing but it does have a lot of charm and originality for what is essentially a remake of an already existing property, the Muppet’s are great as usual and they provide a lot of very funny jokes including some that are purely for the adults.

Whoopi Goldberg plays an amazing God, its so funny to see such a chilled out lord of the universe and who wouldn’t love a God who is a massive fan of Spongebob? (from the movie haha not sure if Whoopi really loves Spongebob)

There are so many references in this film from Steve Irwin to Star Wars, the only reference I didn’t like was the Grinch and that was because instead of choosing to reference the original they chose that terrible Jim Carrey Movie.

I don’t know how they do it,but somehow almost every Muppet movie has a sad song that makes me cry in this case its about Kermit wanting his life back, trust me guys this rivals the goodbye song from Muppet’s Take Manhatten.

It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas is a surprisingly very good film, its not perfect but its nice and that all you really need for a decent family flick, all of the actors, actresses and Muppet’s do a fantastic job and the film is genuinely quite charming.

Do yourself a favor and pick this one up this year.

Christine Cavanaugh 1963-2014

Last night (December 30th) I read a TMZ article which told of the passing of the legendary voice actress Christine Cavanaugh

Christine Cavanaugh

If you grew up in the 90’s chances are that you watched some of the shows that Christine provided her voice talents too such as Darkwing Duck, Dexters lab and The Rugrats.

Some of Christine’s roles include

Chucky from the Rugrats

Dexter from Dexters Lab

Oblina from Ahh real Monsters

Gosalyn from Darkwing Duck

She also voiced Babe

Babe

Being a voice actor/actress is a fantastic job but it does have its down sides one of the biggest being that a lot of the time people don’t realise who is providing the voice of those characters, because usually every voice acting role an actor/actress takes on will need a unique voice so its very difficult to recognise who is behind the microphone.

I feel that this is the reason why everyone knows who Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, kristen bell and Angelina Jolie are but not many people know who Tara Strong, Christine Cavanaugh, Mel Blanc and Frank Welker are and that makes me very sad.

Christine Cavanaugh was an extremely talented voice actress, even though she retired back in 2001 some of the characters she voiced became some of the most memorable cartoon characters of all time.

Christine’s death I am sure will hit a lot of people hard, its very sad that we have lost her but even though she is gone she will never be forgotten.
