It is understandable that Night and Dawn receive the acclaim that they have garnered. What I don't understand is why Day of the Dead has not been as widely praised. The story is just as simple and the themes just as deep. Each film is a product of it's decade and this one definitely captures the Reagan era fears of militarization. The ideas of coexisting are deeper, in my opinion, here than in either of the previous films. And let us not forget what has proven to be the greatest practical special effects ever produced by the master, Tom Savini. There's enough content here to discuss for weeks and enough gore to keep the fans watching. This is a perfect film.
Do not believe the negativity. Is this a typical Disney film? Absolutely not if you are comparing it to the lighter fare the studio has typically dabbled in since the 1960s. But, comparing this to the films Disney made in the 30's and well into the 50s you see a common dark fantasy element. The animation is stunning and possibly the best the studio ever produced. The characters are vibrant and unique and their sense of danger never fades. Add one of the most fantastically voiced villains in all of animation (by the incomperable John Hurt) and a score that is great in it's own right and you have a bonafide classic that has yet to become appreciate for what it is instead of what it isnt.
Classic adventure and fun. Lots of intrigue and excitement. Robert Newton delivers the definitive pirate performance. It clocks in at about an hour and a half which is perfect to watch with your kids (read as just long enough before their interest drifts).
Though the scares take a back seat to the humor, this is a great swan song to the classic Universal Monster movie. Lugosi reminds us why he will always be THE Dracula and Chaney Jr. Continues to imbue the Wolfman with more heart and soul than should be humanly possible. Mix it all up with great comedic performances and you've got gold.
One of Disney's best live action offerings. The humor still hits, the action is still exciting, and the forward thinking view on Native Americans is a nice change of pace from the usual classic western. Parker and Ebsen are magical together. Beware: you'll be humming the Ballad of Davy Crockett all day.
