5 more DCOMs

5 more DCOMs

On the 15th of January I wrote a blog post about my favourite Disney Channel Movies which can be found here. I thought I would expand on that list and write a list of 5 more Disney Channel Movies that I loved which might not have been so well known.

  1. Wizards of Waverly Place the Movie- I was obsessed with Wizards of Waverly Place when I was younger and loved Selena Gomez’s character Alex so when they announced they were making a movie I was so excited! Its a great movie about family and brings the essential components of the show into the movie adding in some music by Selena Gomez and the Scene which can only be a good thing shown by the fact that this had the second biggest premiere views after High School Musical 2 πŸ™‚Β img_0332
  2. Teen Beach Movie- One of the newer DCOM franchises which bought together Ross Lynch from R5 and Maia Mitchell I loved the music from this movie and it reminded me of the old Disney that I loved when I was younger. The movie centres around Brady and McKenzie who get sucked into their favourite movie which I think is such a cool concept πŸ™‚Β img_0329
  3. Adventures in Babysitting- As some of you may know I love Sabrina Carpenter and actually saw her in concert last year, with the addition of Sofia Carson from Descendants I knew this was a must see movie for me πŸ™‚ Sofia Carson and Sabrina Carpenter make a great pair and their comedic timing is great πŸ™‚ There is also a theme of photography running through the movie with Sofia Carson’s character taking photos to document their adventure which I love πŸ™‚Β img_0330
  4. Lemonade Mouth- One of the lesser known Disney Channel Original Movies as it was released after the big surge of Disney Channel movies such as High School Musical and Camp Rock. Bridget Mendler and Hayley Kiyoko both star in this movie which means that the music is amazing, my favourite song being More than a band πŸ™‚Β img_0326
  5. Cadet Kelly- The oldest of all the DCOMs I have mentioned this movie came out in 2002 with Hilary Duff starring as the main character and was actually the biggest DCOM of that year πŸ™‚ This movie was the one which started me watching DCOMs as I was watching Lizzie Mcquire quite a bit at the time so thought I would watch the new movie with Hilary Duff in and the rest is history πŸ™‚

February Favourites 2018 :)

February Favourites 2018 :)

The Greatest Showman- I first heard about this movie from my flatmate Su when she showed me the trailer and I loved the look of it so kept the release date in my head because any movie with Zac Efron and Zendaya is a must see πŸ™‚ On the 5th of January my Mum and I decided to go to the cinema and I suggested The Greatest showman- we both came out of the cinema singing the songs wanting to join the circus! Its such a feel good movie and I have since lost count of the amount of times I have listened to the soundtrack and I can’t wait for the DVD to come out πŸ™‚

Coco- Any Disney movie is a must see movie for me so when I heard that they were doing a movie about Dia de los muertos (the day of the dead) I was intrigued. This movie is incredible and is really heartwarming- there’s lots of heartfelt family moments but its also funny at times and has some great twists and also music πŸ™‚ After watching this movie I recommended it to a few friends and they have all gotten back to me saying that they also loved it πŸ™‚

Rem Life- I only started watching RemLife in December after one of my friends recommended her videos to me during vlogmas and I was instantly hooked because of her infectious optimism- Remi is very much a girly girl who loves Disney and is going through a lifestyle change of eating healthy and living her best life which I find so inspiring.

Dear Evan Hansen Soundtrack- This is a relatively new favourite as I only recently discovered this amazing musical πŸ™‚ I had heard a few of the songs before but had never really paid any attention to this musical but I saw it popping up on my social media more and more so decided to sit down and listen to the whole soundtrack and I am so glad I did. I would recommend this soundtrack to any musical theatre lovers and my two favourite songs are Waving through a window and Sincerely Me πŸ™‚
