Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers review

A funny story before the review. One time at my former job I was on a lunch break and Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers came into my mind I thought to myself, Disney animation should do a movie on them (meaning it would be part of the canon). Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers takes place in a animation/live action hybrid world similar to Roger Rabbit and decades after the 1989 show ended. Chip and Dale had split up but rejoin forces when their friend Monterey Jack disappears so they have to solve where he is.

This is probably the most meta-Disney movie ever and most of the jokes are hilarious and poke fun at lot of things such as Batman vs ET (tell me you’d die to see that). This movie is full of references and cameos not just from Disney but also non-Disney properties. This really felt like Roger Rabbit if it used more modern characters. Ugly Sonic is probably the best cameo but the one that I didn’t expect was Randy Marsh from freaking South Park. I also like how every animated character has a different animation style such as 2d, CGI, stop motion, puppets, and even motion capture (uncanny valley). I will admit however I really did not like the animation on Chip. Unlike other cell shaded cartoons like Spider-Verse or The Bad Guys, Chip looks really off to me, heck even more than CGI Dale. I really think they should’ve just made him 2d like from the cartoon.

Another problem I have is the villain Sweet Pete played who’s also an older Peter Pan The problem isn’t that he’s a bad villain is mostly that his backstory is very similar to Bobby Driscoll who played Peter Pan in 1953. Bobby Driscoll was let go from Disney when he hit puberty and ended up doing drugs and dying homeless. So having Peter Pan be evil feels kind of tasteless especially to people that really love Peter Pan. Also, you could’ve used any character as the villain and nothing would really change heck it would feel less mean spirited then.

Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers is sort of the closet we’ll ever get to a modern or even sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (who also makes a cameo). It’s pretty much what Space Jam A New Legacy tried to do but failed. Its full of great callbacks, jokes, and cameos that you’ll probably miss on your first viewing. Heck it’s one of those movies I’ll probably watch again to find all of the other references.

My Top 10 Favorite Movie Scenes of All Time

Happy Birthday to me again. Today I will be showing you my top 10 personal favorite scenes in all of cinema. This is a list I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time. This list is also filled with SPOILERS so be warned and these choices are based on my personal opinion.

Honorable Mentions:

Leaving stones on Schindler’s grave (Schindler’s List)

Two Worlds (Tarzan)

I Need A Hero (Shrek 2)

Heads exploding (Kingsman: The Secret Service)

Leap of Faith (Spider Man: into the Spider-Verse)

10. Smile you Son of a… (Jaws):

I don’t know why but there’s just something so funny about the way Roy Scheider yells those five words and then blows up the shark. You can feel the relief and satisfaction in Roy’s laugh afterwards. There’s also that beautiful and eerie shot of the shark sinking to the bottom of the ocean symbolizing the end of his reign of terror.

9. Han Solo’s death (Star Wars: The Force Awakens):

Han tries to talk to Kylo Ren to come home but is killed by him instead. There are great little touches like how everything becomes darker once the sun is gone and the preceding quietness and unsureness gives Han’s death much more of a punch. The use of red from those lights and Kylo’s lightsaber give this scene a sense of dread.

8. The Snap (Avengers: Infinity War):

This is one of the most depressing cliffhangers I’ve ever seen. The idea of seeing all these Marvel characters you’ve come to love disintegrate is hard to swallow and we had to wait a whole year to see them return. The lack of music brilliantly gives this scene such a sense of emptiness and the sound use for the disintegration is makes it even more disturbing.

7. The Shrieking Shack (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban):

I was debating whether to choose between this or the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. This scene is full of great performances from Gary Oldman as Sirius Black and David Thewlis as Remus Lupin. There are also great twists such as Sirius Black being good and Peter Pettigrew being Ron’s rat and the one who sold out Harry’s parents.

6. Po Finds the Truth (Kung Fu Panda 2):

This scene has some of the best use of animation I’ve ever seen. I also love how the animation changes from 2d to 3d when Po finds out his mother save him from Shen. The 2d flashbacks brilliantly contrast with the present day 3d animation and the tonal shift in the music and color scheme change to red when Lord Shen attacks is incredibly powerful.

5. Another Day of Sun (La La Land):

This is how you make traffic fun. Another Day of Sun is such a catchy and upbeat opening song full of wonderful choreography, vibrant colors and all done in just one shot that helps establish what type of musical this is going to be. I still stand by that this should have been nominated and won the Academy Award for best song.

4. Bilbo’s birthday Party (The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring):

As much as I’m not a fan of the Lord of the Rings series I do think the Shire is a beautiful setting especially during Bilbo’s party. There are many great moments like Sam getting the courage to dance and Pippin and Merry fooling around with fireworks. It makes you really want to go to this party and mingle with everyone.

3. A tie “sort of” between Married Life and the last shot (Up):

I had to give my favorite movie special treatment. The montage of Carl and Ellie’s life is full of so much heart, humor and especially heartbreak all with just beautiful music and no dialogue. Heck it could be its own short. I also want to give shout out to the last shot with Carl’s house sitting on Paradise Falls in front of the sunset which is probably the most perfect note for a movie to end on.

2. A Million Miles Away (Belle):

You recently heard me gush over this movie and how this scene brought me to tears. I love how Suzu sings to the Beast in her true identity in order to earn his trust and how everyone in U showed her support when she almost lost her voice by singing with her. The song gives me goosebumps and the animation is beautiful. There’s a recent great article on that explains why this is a great scene.

1. Dorothy enters Oz (The Wizard of Oz):

There’s so much I love about this scene. The transition from brown to technicolor with the opening of the door is so brilliant and the fact that no music plays until Dorothy opens the door is a great touch. My favorite thing has to the long wide shot of Munchkinland. Most of my favorite movies let you breath in and immerse yourself into these new worlds and I think The Wizard of Oz does it the best which is why this scene is my favorite scene in all of cinema.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness review

It’s kind of ironic that Tobey Maguire played Peter Parker in Sam Raimi’s Spider Man trilogy, then co-starred with Doctor Strange in No Way Home and now Sam Raimi is directing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. It’s come full circle. Doctor Strange 2 is about Stephen Strange traveling the multiverse to try to stop a new and old enemy for causing destruction. This is basically 50% MCU movie and 50% Sam Raimi movie.

Benedict Cumberbatch is still excellent as Stephen Strange and I like the dynamic between him and America Chavezplayed by Xochitl Gomez. The Illuminati members were also neat and I also really enjoyed seeing Patrick Stewart reprise his role as Charles Xavier. The real standout here however has to be Elizabeth Olsen is probably at her best here as Wanda. I thought it was surprising the see her being the villain since she redeemed herself but her motives are understandable and Elizabeth is having a lot of fun being the villain. I will admit Karl Mordo didn’t really have a purpose in the story and we don’t even see our universe’s Mordo. Still, that’s my only nitpick.

This movie is up there with Thor Ragnarok and the Gaurdians of the Galaxy movies as one of the visually best-looking movies in the MCU. As little as we of the other dimensions they were still awesome to look at especially the pain universe. I also have to give credit to Sam Raimi’s terrific directing. you can definitely see Sam Raimi’s footprint throughout especially during the gruesome moments. There’s a scene where Wanda kills all the Illuminati member that’s very creative and gruesome ways. The climax also has Stephen take over the body of a dead Stephen in order to fight Wanda that’s definitely cool. The best action scene has to be involving Doctor Strange fighting Sinister Strange with musical notes. It’s like something from a Fantasia sequel.

Funny enough, this movie came out near Mother’s Day and the main villain of this movie is a mother trying to reunite with her children. I don’t know if this was intentional or not but it is funny to think about. Doctor Strange 2 is better than the first one and much like Everything Everywhere All at Once this movie can be enjoyed in any dimension in the multiverse.


+Gruesome violence

+Sam Raimi’s directing

+Visually amazing

+Wonderful performances

The Batman: Best Batman movie since 1989. A

Turning Red: Not the biggest in terms of scale but it’s a nice little movie with cartoonish animation. A-

Uncharted: The Uncharted series was like an action-adventure movie you can play so just making it into a movie makes very generic. C

Sonic The Hedgehog 2: An improvement from the first one that feels more true to the source material. B

Everywhere and Everything All at Once: Everything great that people said about this is true, wonderful acting, great humor, and fun action. A+

The Bad Guys: Familiar cliches aside this has some of the best Dreamworks animation. A-

The Cuphead Show: Pretty much exactly what I wanted from a show based on Cuphead.

Amphibia season 3 and The Owl House season 2: Both mid-season premieres are some of if not the best episodes of there shows.

The Proud Family Louder and Prouder: An ok revival of a classic Disney cartoon. Dijonay is the still the worst. Sasha from Amphibia even before her redemption was a better friend.  

Close Enough season 3: Still has that Regular Show charm. The Halloween episode was amazing.

Pinecone and Pony: Cute and innocent, reminds me a lot of Hilda.

Green Eggs and Ham season 2: I once wondered if The Butter Battle Book would ever be adapted and this is probably the closest we’ll ever get.
