Disney movies on Hulu
One of the great unsung classics of Disney animation in the 90s, Hercules is a crowd-pleasing action adventure musical that emphasizes the action. As a boy, Hercules was kidnapped from his Godly parents and poisoned. Losing his immortality but not his strength, he grows up as an overpowered outcast. When Zeus learns of his existence he sends a satyr named Phil to help the young god regain his powers before Hades can overthrow Olympus. With incredible songs and some of the best fights in Disney’s catalog, Hercules is a thrilling animated treat.
Disney films are rarely considered thoughtful, but Pocahontas is an exception to the rule. While by no means perfect, the white writers very much idealizing and fictionalizing a complicated piece of Native American racial history, Pocahontas’s beauty is undeniable. Utilizing a vivid color palette and one of the company’s most mystical portrayals of nature, the movie often rivals Sleeping Beauty visually. While historically gibberish, at least the message of the movie ends up being to respect indigenous people. Just make sure you tell your kids the actual history of Pocahontas when they grow up.
3) A Christmas Carol (*requires the Starz add-on)
A good ghost story is worth watching any time of year, even if it’s about Christmas. While Dickens’ tale a greedy miser being visited by four ghosts the night before Christmas has been told to death, it’s still never been told like this. Directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) and starring Jim Carry, the film uses motion capture technology to put Carry into a CGI animated film. Straddling the line between animation and real-life the true star of A Christmas Carol is the special effects. Acting through CGI requires a massive talent, and Carry is more than up to the task. See what Christmas movies look like outside of the holidays with old Scrooge.
