disney's sorcerer's apprentice

Once upon a time, more than half a century ago, Disney made The Sorcerer's Apprentice. It was pretty and sweet and had cute Mickey Mouse getting into all kinds of aw shucks trouble. But times changed and, just as Batman became The Dark Knight and every film had to have its Matrix element so too the remake of The Sorcerer's Apprentice made over the original animation into a live action goth mystic pizza, with neat nods to the sardonic wit of Near Dark in Nicolas Cage's sorcerer, and weirder nods to Third Rock From the Sun in the apparent aping of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's alien teenager by the actor playing The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
