Episode 18 - Dark 80s Kids Movies Part 2

by Brad Ludwig

A wordmark for Disney.

This episode only had a handful of Crew participants but the conversation drove home certain points about kids films during this period in time.

We discuss the 'dark themed' kids classic films, The Last Unicorn, The Secret of Nimh and Disney's The Black Hole.

Topics covered this episode are; the importance of Bluth, Bakshi and Rankin/Bass. Why Mrs. Brisby is so important and how the death of Jenner would never be done in a film today. Finally, how the message of science gone amok resonates in 2014.
