Disney Movies - Days 75-78

In an effort to catch up, this post is going to be different in that I'm only going to be listing the days and the movies I watched instead of descriptions. I'm definitely winding down with this challenge and I just want it over with (well, that and I'm in trip planning mode now and I can't really concentrate on anything else). Besides, with these older ones, it gets harder and harder to find trailers for them and I'm kind of dragging the bottom of my collection now.

Thursday I watched, Now You See Him, Now You Don't and The Strongest Man In The World. I'm not sure why I started this series backwards, especially since I know what order they go in, but I figured I needed to finish it that way and, at least with these, it doesn't really matter anyway.

I finished the series on Friday with The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes and also finished my last Kurt Russell/Disney film, The Horse In The Gray Flannel Suit. Since I had some time left, I also watched Student Exchange.

Saturday was a full day, so I cleared out The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. I don't own Voyage of the Dawn Treader, but since it's not a Disney film, guess that's OK, but since Disney started the series, they at least should have seen it through, flop or not.

I watched Oz The Great and Powerful next, just to get it over with. Then I went in a different direction with Rob Roy: The Highland Rogue (the 1953 Disney version) and I debated watching the Rob Roy we all know with Liam Neeson, but decided against it, again, since it's not a Disney movie.

Escapade in Florence was next before I switched gears yet again and started going through my Animation Classics Collection discs. Most of the AC discs have shorts I've already viewed before, so I wasn't able to count them and I didn't get through them all on Saturday anyway, but here are the order I watched them in: Mickey and the Beanstalk, The Reluctant Dragon, and Wind In The Willows.

I started back in Sunday morning with the remainder of the Animation Collection: Mickey's Christmas Carol, Three Little Pigs, The Tortoise and the Hare, and The Prince and the Pauper. Luckily, I do have all these discs, so I finished the set.

Then I cleared through Mickey & Minnie's Sweetheart Stories, Mickey Mouse Season 1 (which are technically shorts and not series episodes, so the count will reflect such), Saludos Amigos (which is technically a short but it's long enough to fall into the full-length mixed medium category), The Three Caballeros, and the live action version of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (or Monty Python does Toad as I like to call it).

To finish off the night, I started watching my Walt Disney Treasures disc set of Disneyland, but I didn't finish. I did get through Dateline Disneyland and The Disneyland Story, but I didn't get to get disc 2. I try to start on those tonight. Even though these were technically TV episodes of the Disneyland TV show, I'm going to classify them as documentaries since that is actually what they are.

Wow! That is it...four days worth of Disney movie watching cleared in one post. I probably should have been doing this all along instead of my long ramblings and endless video clips. Hopefully, I will be done by the end of the week and can go back into relaxing blog mode for a while. I'm sure you guys are more than sick of this mess anyway!

I actually love all your insights into the movies and why you like or don't like each one. I haven't been commenting that regularly but I've read every post!
