Let’s Review a Movie: Frank and Ollie (1995)



Today would have been the 100th birthday of an amazing man, Ollie Johnston.  Like Ward Kimball, who I’ve talked about before, Ollie was of Walt’s Nine Old Men.  He brought great personality animation to many of Disney’s features over his long career, along with writing several books including the wonderful ‘Illusion of Life’.  In honour of all of that I’ve decided to celebrate the occasion by looking at the film that documented his life and career, along with the life of his animation partner and lifelong friend Frank Thomas.

Halloween is here again so I’m looking at my favourite ‘thriller’ film.

Let’s Review a Movie: If These Walls Could Talk (1996)



A made for television movie that tells the stories of three different women each living in the same house at different times.  The theme of the film that ties the three stories together is a very realistic look at the topic of abortion.
