Trash & Treasures: Disney’s Oliver & Company

1980s New York: a perfect place to set Charles Dickens’ story about a sad secretly high class boy (you can tell by how kind and goodlooking he is) is saved from being grouped with Those Dirty, Wicked Poors.

Really though, have you read Oliver Twist lately? That book is fucked up.

Chris introduces another of Disney’s forgotten 80s films to a less than impressed audience, Vrai fights fiercely to talk about musicals instead, and Dorothy has feelings about Dickensian classism. And the alarming amount of dog murder in this movie (which is more than zero).

…Also it’s possible we wound up talking about Evangelion for a while too. Somebody reset the counter.
