The Critics Speak Again: Is Disney still capable of making a truly great film?


Rather then post the full Article. I've updated this to include a gist of what it talks about. The original can be found here.

Anyways, so the consensus is with the Reviews coming in for The Sorcerers Apprentice and most being Negative, the question comes up when was the last time Disney made a Critically Acclaimed Live-Action film. The Article goes on to look at the last five years of Disney films and go through how many were well received. The end result doesn't look to good. Out of 53 films, 31 were Live-Action, and 13 of those films received a 50% or higher consensus of reviews, and 5 of those films received 70% or above. The real shocker however is in the last two years Disney has had all of 1 film to come in at an average of 50% or higher. Alice in Wonderland has a 51% rating of positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. With two films left to be released this year (Secretariat and Tron: Legacy), should we be worried about where Disney is heading with their films? Or are they just in a really long dry-spell with things looking good on the horizon.

Thoughts fellow Disers???
