Season 1 Finale
Our first season has come to a close, so Sara and Chrissy are reminiscing about all of the movies they've watched for the pod. The good, the bad, the really bad, and even a few we hope to pull from The Bucket next season.
Sara and Chrissy are deep in some classic Disney nostalgia with the 1950 Walt Disney animated feature film, Cinderella. It's the classic riches to rags and back to riches story of a girl whose widowed father marries an absolute monster. When he up and dies, the girl must serve her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Cinderella's fairy godmother poofs in to save the day and sends her in a pumpkin to a royal ball, where she finds true love but loses a poorly designed shoe.
Sara and Chrissy adventure back in time to the dark-ish ages with a non-descript TV star dog and his unlikely companions. Join us as we discuss the disappointment that is the 2008 Walt Disney Pictures animated film, Bolt. Not even a John Travolta and Miley Cyrus duet can save this movie from its lack of attention to detail, but Chrissy cried anyways. We're gonna blame the pregnancy hormones.
Sara and Chrissy were totally (and regrettably) sober for the making of this episode. Join us as we discuss the 1940 Walt Disney Pictures animated film, Fantasia. It's a whole lot of classical music, a whole lot of transitional mini -lectures from a man in unforgiving lighting conditions, a whole lot of naked boobies and Sorcerer Mickey! Featuring special guest, Satan. Join us next time when we'll be watching Bolt!www.mouseearsandamovie.comwww.instagram.com/mouseearsandamoviev
Sara and Chrissy are BACK! Our extended holiday into mental health into new baby into paralyzing ADHD hiatus is over! We're kicking off the second half of our season with the 1997 Walt Disney Pictures animated film, Hercules. It's the story of a demigod baby who almost gets murdered but lives to break a lot of things and kill a lot of monsters. This episode has everything. Loose and possibly incorrect knowledge of Greek mythology. An absentee but all-powerful dad. Our THIRD attempted infanticide in six episodes. It's a wild ride and a half-goat, half-Danny Devito is hitched to our chariot.Join us next time when we'll be watching Fantasia!www.mouseearsandamovie.comwww.instagram.com/mouseearsandamovie
Sara and Chrissy are cruising into the Cretaceous period before they run away screaming from meteors and Carnotaurus. They both are watching the 2000 Walt Disney Pictures 39th animated film, Dinosaur. Aladar, an orphaned iguanodon raised by lemurs, goes on a treacherous journey with his family in search of a new home and maybe a lady dinosaur. This movie has everything. Gorgeous backdrops. Our second attempted infanticide with only five episodes under our belts. Dinosaurs whose names we either mispronounce or forget entirely. A whole lotta not The Land Before Time.Join us when we release our next episode for Hercules!www.mouseearsandamovie.comwww.instagram.com/mouseearsandamovie
Lilo and Stitch
Sara and Chrissy crash land on E-Arth with Lilo and Stitch. Two misfit creatures with a serious case of the dark and twisties, they're a match made in pet rescue heaven. There's screaming. There's fighting. There's destruction. There's a crapload of Elvis. Find out how this movie ranks on the badness scale and learn about some seriously ominous deleted scenes while we talk about this little blue alien and his Hawaiian best friend.The Bucket spewed forth another Dark Ages cartoon, Dinosaur! Join us next time!www.mouseearsandamovie.comwww.instagram.com/mouseearsandamovie
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Sara and Chrissy are blown away, amazed, in awe... of how this movie ever got made. Welcome to The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a lighthearted children's cartoon for the whole family to enjoy, starring infanticide, damnation, evil men lusting after women and fantasizing about their deaths when rejected by them, three funny gargoyles, and enough Nice Guy whining to make us launch ourselves off a bell tower. Hold onto your butts, because this one is a doozy, folks.Join us next episode for aliens and Elvis when we watch Lilo & Stitch!www.mouseearsandamovie.comwww.instagram.com/mouseearsandamovie
The Little Mermaid
Sara and Chrissy are diving under the sea with Ariel, Flounder, Sebastian, and a creepy statue of Prince Eric. We've got Menken and Ashman aplenty. We've got problematic voice-loss and patriarchy galore. You want problems that could be solved by giving Ariel a pen and paper? We've got twenty. As children of the 1980s, we are contractually obligated to love this movie. As women on the internet, we are contractually obligated to tell you every single thing we think about this Disney classic. Will Ursula turn us into gross little soul worms in the end? Or will The Bucket choose our next movie?Join us next week with another movie from the Disney Renaissance, The Hunchback of Notre Dame!www.mouseearsandamovie.comwww.instagram.com/mouseearsandamovie
Sara and Chrissy scamper through the forest with the woodland creatures of 1942's Bambi. They talk about a deer. They unpack our collective childhood trauma. They fawn (heh heh) over the first woman to animate a Disney film. They cringe over twitterpation. They talk some more about a deer! This wasn't a movie either was very familiar with, but The Bucket spat it forth, and thus here is Episode ONE!Join us next time when Sara and Chrissy simultaneously lose their shit over The Little Mermaid! They were born in the 80s, they can't help it.www.mouseearsandamovie.comwww.instagram.com/mouseearsandamovie
