Disney Reviews by the Unshaved Mouse #8: Make Mine Music

Ah Make Mine Music. Well, what can be said about this, the most famous, the most beloved, and arguably the greatest Disney movie of all time that has not already been said a million times, by a million different critics?

Yeah, fine, I’d never heard of it either. This may in fact be the most obscure Disney move in the entire classic canon, at least for a European. I actually had to get a Region 1 DVD that came in this weird little white case with clasps. Goddamn clasps!

What is this colonial savagery?

Oh yeah, and then when I tried to play it on my PC I get this…

See that? That’s my PC saying that, “Why yes, I can play you this American DVD. But you will only be able to play Region 1 until you decide to set me back to Region 2. And, oh yes, you can only do this three times. Then, I will be stuck forever on the last region you set me on. So you must choose whether you wish to continue being able to watch Make Mine Music, (which in my infinite evil I must remind you, you will not be able to play on any other device you own) OR whether you want to watch any of your other DVDs on me. Your move, meatsack.”

Okay, first things first.

Ahem.

WHY?????!!!!

Why would you do that? What possible reason could you have? You don’t have a problem with me WATCHING media from different regions, otherwise why even make it possible for me to do that? So if you don’t have a problem with me watching DVDs from other regions, why would you limit the amount of times I can watch a DVD I purchased legally with my own money? WHY, IN A TIME WHEN PIRACY IS SUPPOSEDLY KILLING OFF PHYSICAL MEDIA AND MAKING IT “NECESSARY” TO TRY AND FORCE THROUGH DRACONIAN LEGISLATION THAT EFFECTIVELY GIVES MOVIE STUDIOS CONTROL OVER ALL CONTENT ON THE INTERNET, WHY AM I BEING PUNISHED FOR PLAYING THE GAME FAIRLY?! 

ATTICA! ATTICA! ATTICA!

WHY CAN I ONLY USE THIS FUNCTION THREE TIMES?! WHAT IS THIS DEMON MONKEY PAW BULLSHIT?! I REPEAT! WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!

Because I can.

Well. You know what happened next, don’t you? That’s right. I fell in love with the movie. I fell in love with the movie that I can only watch by giving up my ability to watch every other movie I own on my PC. 

Pff. You think you have problems?

So, let’s take a look at Make Mine Music. This was the last of the canon Disney classics animated during the second world war, when most of the studios animators had either been drafted or were working on propaganda shorts for the war effort. So Make Mine Music is basically a load of leftover ideas shoved together into one movie to turn a quick buck during the lean years. It’s a hodge podge, yeah, and it’s certainly uneven but I have to say it really works. If I had to describe it in one sentence it would be: Fantasia, but for all music. There is classical music, sure, but during the ten (!) different segments you get bluegrass, swing, jazz, ballet, spoken word and opera.

So let’s dive in.

    Man at that rate, I think accidentally stumbling upon a link that just so happens to contain a bunch of data which have a staggering similarity to a video file that bears great resemblance to this particular movie, is more than justified.

    As for the review, excellent stuff as always. Particularly like how we had Mickey advicing Walt how to best spread the word of his might last time, and Bugs quoting Bane this time. Giving a beloved mascot a sinister speech is just one of those things that never fails to bring a smile to my lips and a song into my empty husk of a heart. Hard as it is to skip between so many different segments, many which you don't even have much to say about, what you do say manages to remain entertaining and informative enough. While I've heard of the Goon Show before, it was just as a loose reference and nothing more. Learning who they were (and that Sellers was part of them) and just how much influence they had was both amusing and entertaining. It will be nice to return to more "movie-er" material next time around though, and I must say, kudos on the Alladin reference.

    And that is all I will say with regards to the ending teaser, least I lose plausible deniability.

    I was tempted, but to be honest I have this kind of irrational fear of SWAT teams bursting through my window South Park style. The more people I can introduce to the Goon Show, the closer I am to getting my wings. Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOwlA-fj9nE
