Hi! Welcome to the 54 Disney Reviews blog.

In July I tore my MCL making me relatively immobile.


I am normally an open water swimmer but clearly my knee wasn’t going to allow me to do that and I’m the kind of girl that needs a project.  I thought and pondered what I could do from my bedroom that would be fun and involving?  Then it hit me I have always wanted to watch all of the Disney films.  I’ve been a blogger for 7 years over at http://smilingldsgirl.com  so it also seemed natural to blog about the experience.  Plus, writing reviews would help me to improve and having just started a new marketing job (dream job) any experience I had creating and writing content is a good thing.

I also participate in Nanowrimo each year (well this year will be my 3rd) so I’m hopeful watching and analyzing all of these stories and films will inspire me to write something special. I am a very religious person and so that effects my views on films but I also appreciate darker themes when done in the right way.

I try to be positive and find things I like in any movie. Luckily with Disney that isn’t difficult.  They are so creative and fun that for the most part their misses are still a lot of fun.  My grades for the films are relative to within the Disney world.  If I was comparing it to other animated films nearly every Disney would get an A.  The Lorax and The Smurfs would get a true F from me because they are so cynical, obnoxiously drawn and trying to sell products to kids.  So, most Disney is great in comparison!

Nevertheless, I try to be thoughtful and detailed in my analysis.  I welcome feedback and comments.  We may not always agree but hopefully we can respect everyone’s opinions and ideas.

Thanks for checking in and let the Disney magic begin!

mickeyI also have a youtube channel with unboxings and some movie and DVD reviews so check it out. http://www.youtube.com/user/smilingldsgirl

  1. Hello! (I couldn’t find any other way to contact you except for leaving this comment so I hope it reaches you)!

    This is Louisa with Screen Zealots. I’m in the process of putting together the Online Association of Female Film Critics. It’s going to be a small Association of women critics who exclusively write film reviews online. I’ve been reading your blog for a while and I’d like to extend an invitation for you to be a charter member! There are NO membership dues and this is and will always be entirely free. It will be great publicity for your site too!

    If this is something that you’re interested in, please contact me and let me know. I’m also looking for more female bloggers and online film critics to join us so please send along their information too.

    I do ask that all members place a logo on their website; it doesn’t have to be hugely prominent, just placed somewhere so we can get some traffic and you can get some recognition too. I also will need a short bio and photo of you to add to our Members page as well as the URL of your website. Best of all, we will even have our own end of year awards that we can publicize to studios and online. As the organization grows, I welcome ideas that you may have for content or for sharing your expertise with the rest of the community. I really want this to be a place where we can all support each other.

    I am excited about this new venture, and I hope you’ll join me and be a part of it! Check out the website I’ve designed: http://www.oaffc.com/
