This is my opinion about why Disney should revert back to the old movie ways that they use to produce.
I believe that Disney Channel Original Movie have deteriorated from what they use to be. When I was growing up the moves were full of soul, purpose and everyday life issues. Nowadays all the movies are about singing and dancing about teens falling in love. Look at the movie Camp Rock. It was about a nobody girl falling in love with a real popular boy and their was a lot of singing. Look at High School Musical. It was about a nerdy girl falling in love with a popular athlete and they sang a lot. Look at the movie Starstruck. It was about nobody girl falling in love with a superstar and their was more singing. Do you see any patterns, because I do. All the newer movie just seen to insult kids and teens intelligence.
Reflecting on the movies I saw growing up I see a lot different plots. My all time favorite movie, Tiger Cruise, was about a girl dealing with being on a navy vessel during 9/11 and helping all the kids and families get through it. I also loved Going to the Mat, a story about a blind boy that joins the wrestling team and learns that he can do anything if he puts his mind to it. Another movie was Tru Confessions. This movie was about a girl making a video about he mentally handicapped twin brother. This shows what family love is all about and the difficulty in life. Some other great movies were Double Team, Cadet Kelly, Right on Track, Pixel Perfect, The Color of Friendship, and Right on Track. Try and watch these movie instead of the new ones because they are shallow and discuss unimportant topics.
Why do they not have deeper topics in their plots anymore. Do they think that kids will not understand them, that they are not intelligent enough to comprehend important subjects. I am very tired of the same story being repeated ever since High School Musical. Disney have such a big influence of kids and I wish they would use that to their advantage to teach kids important life lessons.
I will have to say that Lemonade Mouth had a bit more of a plot to it, it was not nearly as good as the older movies. At least it was not about a popular boy falling in love with a nobody girl with a lot of singing. It was a group of friends singing a lot. It was a little better. I hope this is the first step to getting back on the right track. I do still love all the older Disney movies, even through I am older and I hope that any of you that have not watched them do so soon and enjoy then as much as I have. Please feel free to comment, they are much appreciated.
