For better or worse, Cool World is best known for being a bit of a Who Framed Roger Rabbit? ripoff. But the film is grittier and markedly more adult. With a very young Brad Pitt doing the investigation, Cool World is something all its own.
Space Jam is a widely-beloved classic. You are nearly as likely to see a TuneSquad jersey on the street as any NBA jersey. It is exciting to look forward to the upcoming Space Jam 2, considering that. unlike Michael Jordan, LeBron James is actually a good actor.
Who can forget the scene in Mary Poppins when Julie Andrews's titular character et al. jump into a chalk drawing? It is easily one of—if not the most—captivating sequences of the classic family film from Disney.
David Hasselhoff's cameo may very well be the most memorable part of The Spongebob Squarepants Movie. The former Baywatch star serves as the perfect deus ex machine to launch us into the film's final act.
The Three Caballeros is one of the earliest examples of blending animation and live-action. The film sees everyone's second-favorite animated duck Donald on a trip through Latin America.
