    I get that Rescuers Down Under is obscure, but this is ridiculous!

    What a perfect movie! It definitely belongs in the Renaissance discussion even though people leapfrog it between Mermaid and Aladdin. It wasn’t a big hit in theaters, but was big on home video.

    Moana would have done better at the BO, if not quite Frozen-levels, if it hadn't been cut short at the knees by Sing, coming hot off the first SLoP (2016 was easily the height of Ilumination's popularity). There were multiple markets like DOM and Japan where Moana was gaining WOM but then Sing just came along and hurt it.


    Still though, the soundtrack at least has been killing it since. There was one of those Teens React YouTube videos where they had to guess the highest selling Disney songs on Spotify (or was it iTunes?) and both How Far I'll Go and You're Welcome were in the Top 3(!) after Let It Go.

    Moana clocks in at #42 for the decade on Billboard’s 2010s list. The only soundtracks ahead of it are Frozen (#4), The Greatest Showman (#12), and A Star is Born (#33).

    I never bothered to see it, although I want to now, but how come Moana did far less than Frozen at the box office? When reviews were even better? Didn't capture young girls hearts like Frozen did? I am rewatching Frozen, and damn this is a great movie. I love the little details in the movie, like showing Anna and Elsa have faults/ supposed "oddities" despite being princesses. 

    Moana has become a monster since its theatrical release. Its run has been reminiscent of The Little Mermaid.

    Popular Opinion: Tim Burton lost his spark & became box office poison after Alice In Wonderland

    I rewatched Sleepy Hollow this week and was really stunned at his ability to craft such an interesting interpretation of colonial New England with such rich characters and a genuinely scary antagonist. I don’t know how he has evolved into what he’s shitting out these days.

    Not even Judy Garland at the tail end of her life? I know Judy's singing from her MGM period exclusively, but watching the movie it was easy for me to imagine Renee's voice as a Judy whose powers had been winnowed down by time and abuse. 

    Three years before her death: 


    God...she was sensational.

    Great expansion for Judy. My audience yesterday was super old so that's a good sign for legs. @WrathOfHan you have been warned.


    Renee's performance in it is the real deal though. Movie will likely have strong staying power just for the WOM surrounding her performance alone.

    Really? The moment she started to sing...I was out. That was not Judy Garland.

  7. TLK soundtrack is bombing. No one is buying/streaming it. 


    Per HDD:



    At this point it appears that Ed Sheeran will repeat at #1 in his second week, and Beyoncé's inspired-by set, Lion King: The Gift, will battle a resurgent Billie Eilish—now approaching her 17th week—for the #2 spot. As for Disney’s actual Lion King soundtrack, so far the film's explosive box office has not translated into mega-streams and/or sales, but we'll keep a close eye on the situation. That said, Bey's Gift is #1 at iTunes and the official ST is #4.

    Beyoncé - Lion King: The Gift (Parkwood/Columbia) 50-70k total activity, 13-18k album
    The Lion King (Walt Disney) 17-20k, 11-14k
    Nas (Mass Appeal/Def Jam) 17-20k, 5-7k
