Jabroniville 1

A GOOFY MOVIE (1995): Written by: Jymn Magon, Chris Matheson & Biran Pimental   The movie’s two showstoppers, “Stand Out” and “I2I” one after the other. Nothing in history is more “1990s” than this.

POCAHONTAS (1995): Written by: Carl Binder, Susannah Grant & Philip LaZebnik   And NOW WE COME… to the END of the Renaissance. The most hilarious thing about this is that Disney thought this was going to be their MAGNUM OPUS. Like, after Beauty and the Beast got some Oscar Cred, they were like […]
