"Thru the Mirror"

"Thru the Mirror" (short), 1936. Mickey Mouse has a dream about going through the looking glass.

Directed by David Hand. Written by William Cottrell, Joe Grant & Bob Kuwahara. Starring Walt Disney.

Concept: 4/4 (Great)
Story: 1/4 (Bad)
Characters: 1/4 (Bad)
Dialog: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Pacing: 3/4 (Good)
Cinematography: 3/4 (Good)
Special effects/design: 4/4 (Great). It's interesting to watch a Disney cartoon from the 30s after recently watching a bunch of Warner Brothers cartoons from the same era. Disney's on a completely different level, technically.
Acting: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Music: 3/4 (Good)
Subjective Rating: 5/10 (Indifferent, 2/4). Despite heaps of attempted whimsy and silliness, it's only occasionally fun enough to entertain.
Objective Rating (Average): 2.5/4 (Okay)
