Disney+ is the newest streaming service from Disney. With this service, Disney has released a number of new original series and movies that are exclusive to the service. Hotstar offers a wide range of content for all ages including sports, comedy, animation, horror, family entertainment, and much more. Here are five of my favorite movies on both services.
AVENGERS: INFINITY SAGA
There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the Marvel Universe since the events of Avengers: Infinity War. The movie saw the demise of many beloved superheroes and sent shockwaves throughout the entire Marvel Universe. Although the ending to the movie didn’t necessarily explain who survived and who didn’t, Marvel fans have always known that Thanos was going to be the one who ended things in the next movie.
The Russo brothers have already stated that they are going to address the deaths that were shown at the end of the movie. For now, we will have to be content with rewatching the movie over and over again. Infinity War is one of the best Marvel movies in recent memory, and it also has one of the most memorable opening scenes.
FORD V FERRARI
This movie is incredibly popular around the world and Disney is often used as a reference point when discussing some of the best Disney films. This is one of the most engaging love stories I’ve ever seen. I’m not usually a fan of story movies, but this one is an exception. The title song itself is a life-changing song. A very great tearjerker.
Togo is a 2019 American drama adventure film directed by Ericson Core and produced by Walt Disney Pictures. The film centers on Leonhard Seppala and his titular sled dog in the 1925 serum run to Nome to transport diphtheria antitoxin serum through harsh conditions during an epidemic of diphtheria.
Cruella, directed by Craig Gillespie, is the origin story of the skunk-haired classic Disney villainess from 101 Dalmations, played by Glenn Close (who is credited as executive producer). Close as Cruella De Vil was hammy, incredibly terrifying, and delightfully diabolical. The story begins with a flashback
Black Beauty is a 2020 drama film written and directed by Ashley Avis, based on the 1877 novel of the same name by Anna Sewell. In the film a young mare is brought to Birtwick park where she forges a bond with a spirited teenager that carries through different chapters, challenges, and adventures.
This remake of the classic horror movie is a must-watch, as it perfectly depicts the classic possessed house trope with a new twist. It is one of the greatest scares of all time.
Insidious: Chapter 3
Insidious is a little bit like you’d imagine your worst nightmare might be like. The premise of this movie is both terrifying and clever. In the third movie, the characters who were trapped in the dark under our beds become a bit more alien.
TOY STORY 4
If you haven’t watched this movie in a while, it’s worth your while. The fourth movie in the animated series has Mickey Mouse taking on a new adventure with Donald Duck and Goofy.
Along with new characters, there’s also old favorites returning including all of the Silly Symphonies characters.
The Toy Story franchise is one of my all time favorites and I’ve been a fan for most of my life.
One of the most iconic romantic dramas, this movie follows Rose and Jack from when they first meet as kids until they are sailing on the ill-fated Titanic. Titanic is not just a love story; it is an epic drama that makes you feel every emotion you can imagine. This movie is the closest one can come to feeling an ocean, and it is absolutely incredible. The whole movie is gripping and once you’ve watched it, you’ll find yourself in a state of awe wondering how could they film a story so beautifully.
The animated tale Coco was released in theaters on November 22, 2017. This movie tells the story of a 12-year-old aspiring musician who travels to the Land of the Dead and meets his ancestors. This movie is full of energy and the music in the film is wonderful. It is a must-see for everyone, especially during this holiday season.
My favorite movie of the Disney Princess movie collection is Princess Diaries. This movie’s protagonist is a simple girl, who becomes a princess. She makes the whole thing seem so easy with her carefree attitude. The beauty of the movie is that it’s able to teach valuable life lessons in just 8 minutes. So if you’re looking for a great kids movie that isn’t all sugar and pixie dust, pick up Princess Diaries and remember that you can achieve your dreams!
