The Best! 10 out of 5 stars

I Dunno.

Reviewed by: TVB, August 14, 2007

Lemme tell you this. When I was a kid (as I was born from the 90's), I enjoyed the film.

If you notice, all the stuff they have, they don't notice a memorable Disney film. They just skipped, "One Hundred & One Dalmatians, The Jungle Book?" WTF! It's suppose to be memorable.

We can at least use a buck for it. It's about a wizard & an owl at their cottage, or something. They tell a story of Young King Arthur and the Sword & The Stone.

I don't remember very much, but at least this movie remains.

THAT'S MY REVIEW & GOOD NIGHT!

Sword in the Stone 2 out of 5 stars

The Worst Disney Feature

Reviewed by: deitrichp, May 18, 2005

I'm just completing a viewing of all 40+ Disney classics. When I am finished, I will rank them; but I don't have to finish to know that Sword in the Stone will rank last. This is worse than Home on the Range, worse than the Rescuers, and far worse than The Black Cauldron (which is sometimes cited as the worst Disney feature.) Sure, The Black Cauldron was a mess that butchered its source material, but it wasn't a Sword-in-the-Stone-mess. The songs are poor, and the animation is often suspect -- but that maybe be said of the worst Disney features. The characters are either bland (Wart makes the Disney version of Taran in The Black Cauldron look interesting by comparison -- this is a major feat) or terrible (in the case of Merlin, one of the few completely embarassing failures in Disney character history.) Yet, what distinguishes The Sword of the Stone from merely weak Disney efforts, is the complete lack of plot: nothing happens. The plot may be stupid in Home on the Range, but it does exist. Wart wanders around in poorly edited scenes until Wart takes the Sword in the Stone in an anticlimatic, but merciful end to the film. I was shocked to find out that Walt was alive when this disaster was created -- he obviously was completely preoccupied at the time. Avoid this movie at all costs -- and no, this isn't the sort of movie that fussy animations buffs will hate, but kids will love -- keep the kids away, too.

The Sword In The Stone 6 out of 5 stars

The only truly memorable scene was the duel between Merlin and that evil witch. The rest of the film just drags along too slow to really sustain any interest.

The Sword In The Stone 6 out of 5 stars

I like the wolf the best. The more funny animals in this film, the better.......I'm the sort of viewer who can't help feeling bored with a cartoon featuring an all-human cast.
The wolf is one of the greatest ever in a cartoon. The "battle-of-the-sorcerers" sequece really buoys the film, as well as the scenes where Merlin turns himself & Wart into fishes, squirrels, etc. (The one exception is Archimedes, the owl--he's just as much of an old fart as Merlin himself!)

The Sword In The Stone 8 out of 5 stars

A Beautiful Magical Movie

Reviewed by: Primus, August 26, 2003

After a long time, I saw this movie again just a couple of days ago. This movie really goes down depp in my heart. I feel sorry for Arthur when the bossy people of the castle were he lives in call him Wart. That's very mean. I love it when Merlin helps Arthur out. My favourite parts for the movie is when Merlin turns Arthur into A Fish, A Squiral then a Bird to learn the meanings of life and how the world works. It's very neat and funny how Merlin and his owl Archimedes argue alot. And boy is Madame Mim very creepy and ulgy when see become many things you see in the movie. The Magic Duel was also neat how Merlin and Madame Mim fight it out. Merlin said to Mim "No Cheating!" But what do you expect from a wicked witch? Anything for her to win, so of course she'll cheat. Like really like the end of the duel when Mim thinks Merlin has dissapear but really turn himself into a infecteous disese and makes Mim sick. Sometimes and now alot I wish we can be turn into animals and other things like what Merlin does to Arthur. But it looks like that will never happen.
