Seen and loved all three so far, so definitely can't wait to see this! One day I'll own them all.
Talk about a pleasant surprise. I always liked the original and owned it growing up, but it was never really one of my favorites of the Disney classics for some reason, don't know why. Cynics may scoff at Bambi not being grown since he was in the original and had a family of his own at the end of it, but it works perfectly well the way it is. It's set after his mom died and before he had antlers. It has its funny parts (like when Flower does a "RIAR" sound in a log and a mouse echoes it back as the sound of a bear), but the shining glory in this sequel is how Bambi develops a relationship with his dad. Both are suffering with the loss of Bambi's mom and his dad seems too strict in wanting Bambi to grow up and be a prince, and doesn't understand that Bambi's still young and free. He even toggles the idea of giving Bambi up for adoption! But Bambi, like most kids, wants the approval of his parent and wants to impress him.
From that point, this turns into an excellent movie as you watch Bambi make his father proud, something a lot of humans (myself included for sure, but with both of my parents) do - go through major struggles of never feeling like you're good enough and will never live up to the parents' expectations just because you're not totally like them. Bambi II really pulls at the heart strings toward the end and will have you reflecting on your own childhood and relating to it with mixed emotions. Disney knows how to make great sequels of its classics!! I prefer this to the original.
Yet another good Disney sequel. We follow Scamp, the classic Tramp's son, in his quest to break free from the holds of the life of a housedog and become wild and free. What will happen? Will he miss home and return? Is he as good of a junkyard dog as his dad? How will his love interest play out? The music's not especially memorable, but overall this was another great, entertaining sequel of a classic from Disney, along with the likes of Jungle Book 2 and Lion King 2: Simba's Pride. Recommended for Disney fans and children.
I'd seen this movie on TV from time to time through the years but never caught it in the beginning, so I didn't watch it but vowed to one day since it had Bruce Willis in it and he's great. I recently saw that it won several Razzy Awards, including Bruce Willis as worst actor of the year for this flick, and one for worst movie of the DECADE!?? You have to be freakin' kidding me! I watched it and liked it a good bit! I found it entertaining to watch Willis as a famous thief, and it includes a nice mixture of action/adventure and comedy! The comedy sequences in it for me were funnier than any part in many comedy movies, especially the cornier new releases. Don't listen to the Razzies, critics, or other people, if you're a Bruce Willis fan or a fan of adventure/comedy films, definitely see this very fun movie!
