    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    This would be one big thing I consider an improvement to the stage show. The original version of "America" just sucks - the movie made it exactly as it should have been in the first place. Now if they would also switch "Cool" and "Gee, Officer Krupke" to where they are in the movie, then we...

    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

    If the first Maleficent would have been written better and given the proper backstory with everyone in character, it could have done well as a PG-13 movie.

    Descendants sucks. And Maleficent was horribly miscast in that film.

    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

    No. Disney already screwed up Maleficent super badly in what was supposed to be her own movie. I'm not going to watch them do it even more. At this point, Disney is just kicking this character while she's down.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    It's a light moment considering how upbeat the melody and Maria's mood is during the scene. To each their own. But if I had it my way, both the stage version and the movie would have this number as it is in the movie, for the reasons I listed.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    I will admit I don't feel as strongly about this as I do Cool and Gee, Officer Krupke because you really can't blame Maria for not knowing the truth yet. If Cool and Gee, Officer Krupke were in their proper places but I Feel Pretty was still after the rumble, it wouldn't bother me as much. But...

    Toy Story, The Incredibles and Up voted Pixar's best movies

    I would rank A Bug's Life higher. Much higher.

    I stand corrected.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    That's interesting, because that part of my assessment is what I feel strongest about. With "Cool" taking place before the war council, I can at least forgive it because it's not completely illogical - the worst I can say about it is that the song's atmosphere is just way too extreme for this...

    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

    The first attempt to make a Maleficent movie was more than bad enough. Disney can take this "sequel" and shove it.

    Cruella (2021)

    I bet I can guess the plot: The story centers around the wonderful DeVille family: a veterinarian father, an animal rights activist mother, three daughters and one son. The entire family loves animals but none more so than middle daughter, Cruella. Cruella was born with a terrible birth defect...

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    To me, it's just called being an actor.

    I figured out the problem. I didn't make sure there was a bracket at the beginning of the first /quote. LOL!

    Thank you, Malcolm.

    West Side Story - Spielberg remake (2021)

    I wouldn't say that West Side Story is a remake of Romeo and Juliet - it's an adaptation. There's a difference between the two terms. Just like every movie version of Romeo and Juliet is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet. And the adaptation was so effective that...
