Theater Thursday

This week we have a Mickey Mouse Movie Meme - all about Disney films.

1) What is your favorite Disney film? If it's animated, what's your favorite live action film?
I've never been a huge fan of any of them, but The Jungle Book certainly made an impression on me at an early age. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids was also pretty good ("Oh...French class!").

2) What Disney character is your favorite, and why? Which character do you think is overrated and or overused? (they don't have to be animated characters)
Iago, the parrot from Aladdin. Mostly because I can't help seeing Gilbert Gottfried looking over the script and realizing that, though it sucked, it was better than hosting USA, Up All Night. Bambi is an overrated, but delicious wuss.

3) Why do you think the Disney appeal has endured so long and been so influential in American film and culture?
I would say that the quality of their work has shaped our understanding of how we relate to the world; that we are influenced by them from an early age to heed the principles of understanding, cooperation, and personal responsibility. But really, they just pump narcotics into the theater at their movies and they lace their videos with other highly addictive chemicals. Damn Pentavirate...

BONUS) If you were Walt Disney and you suddenly came back from the dead (or got unfrozen, or had your head reattached, or whatever), what would be your impressions of what the company has made since you "died" (in 1966)?
Since I "died?" I would think, "Holy crap, who would have thought I could take over the world with a rat?"
