We’re gonna post 6 of the greatest movie summers - reblog your favourite!
1991
Terminator 2: Judgment Day: James Cameron arguably started his habit of making groundbreaking event pictures with this sci-fi sequel. To this day, the CGI continues to impress, as does the beating heart beneath the hyperalloy combat chassis.Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves: For the last 30 or so years, the ‘swashbuckler’ seems to be a difficult subgenre to get right, but Prince Of Thieves nails it, with action and scale to spare, and one of Alan Rickman’s many great villains, the Sheriff of Nottingham.Thelma & Louise: This ladies-on-the-lam movie may not immediately feel like a Ridley Scott flick, but the director’s fingerprint is visible in the striking vistas, large-scale action and gutsy characterisation.Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey: There was existential searching aplenty in this most excellent of sequels. The time-screwing plot, in which the eponymous slackers try to outdo Death, is a head-scratcher, but it’s just one facet of the movie’s goofy charm.Point Break: In what was an annus mirabilis for Keanu Reeves-based bromances, Kathryn Bigelow’s tale of wave-riding bank robbers took action-buddy antics to a whole new level of awesome. One hell of an adrenaline rush.

21 Kick-Ass Disney Princesses
4. Mulan (1998)
The Princess: Fa Mulan is the only daughter of an old warrior. Realising that if her father went to fight the Hun alongside his fellow countrymen he’d end up dead in a day, she steals his horse, dresses as a man and heads out to battle in his place.
 Coolest Moment: Mulan lures the Hun out onto the roof of the Emperor’s palace, where she fights them single-handedly…
If She Was In An Action Flick: "Man! I feel like a woman!" Mulan would become a member of Charlie’s Angels, using her unparalleled skills in disguise and deception to undo criminals from the inside.

Total Film’s Favourite Disney Movies
9) Dan Goodswen (Digital Production Editor)
Robin Hood (1973)
This seemed to be playing constantly on the family VHS when I was growing up. The fox Robin Hood is hands down the greatest screen incarnation of the legendary character - sorry, Errol - and everything about this film wins.
The tone, which switches from light and comedic to genuinely threatening, the anthropomorphised animals who fit so well with their characters (Sir Hiss, the snakey aristocrat to name one - as voiced by Terry Thomas!), and the trademark Disney sense of fun and adventure. Never fails to put a smile on my face just thinking about.

Robin Hood review

Robin Hood review

The next big disappointment of the year was Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood. Tired, lacking ideas and excitement - further proof that the Russell/Ridley machine is running out of gas. 2 Stars.
