    Too bad. I had hoped with the strides in CGI, the new Dumbo would be really great. Thanks, Robert.

    Thank you, Robert. Thinking of children’s films here. Have you ever given a review for a Hayao Miyazaki film? Meanwhile, I can scratch Dumbo off my list. Well, it never really was on the list. Which is why your reviews are so well received, I think. Diversity rocks?

    I don’t get these live action remakes of classic Disney animation films…let them live on as they are.
