Movie Review: Tangled

Movie Rating: 4/5
Conclusion: The perfect 'classic' Disney film

Since Mom has been feeling better and she's been dying to get out of the house I decided, unexpectedly, to take her to the movies. Originally I wanted to take her to see Harry Potter or Narnia but the shows started too late for her, she gets tired early. So I decided on Tangled, which I'd been wanting to see and since my younger niece lives in Puerto Rico and I had no excuse my excuse was my mother :)

She loved it, roared in laughter and chatted non-stop about it during dinner afterward.

I thought it was very reminiscence of old-Disney which is what a lot of people had said about it. For starters we're back to enchantments, Princesses, good songs, animals with awesome personalities. What I do have to commend this is on the actual animation of it, it was pretty darn amazing. From the hair on the horse to Rapunzel's nose and freckles and Flynn's eyebrows. It looked really amazing up close. I also loved the songs, especially 'Mama knows best'. I also must say that it was pretty hilarious, most especially Flynn. This is a strange thing as the main guy is usually never funny but he was, in his plotting and freaking out over her hair it was comical. I have honestly no complaints, my favorite line being Flynn stating at the end that he has a thing for brunettes, that's always a nice touch :)

The theater was filled (packed) with little tiny children that all became very confused when the wicked witch dies and for a full 5 min you could hear the whispers of mothers attempting to explain that she wasn't really dead. She had just disappeared. Kids are smarter than we think and I am pretty sure the two girls next to us didn't buy it for a second.

I must also say that I absolutely loved that the entire band of braggarts was gay, it took mom a second to pick up on it but the mime did her in.

It was a nice-fluffy movie to watch and I think I may buy it just to keep it around whenever kids drop by (and you know to enjoy it myself).

Also, check out my wallpaper of the fabulous, super arrogant and conceited Flynn.

<3 him.

Belle, I loved this movie so much I saw it twice. First with my family then with my friends from work. I'm an artist, so that's enough to get me to any animated film the first time around. Going twice for the same movie is unheard of for me.
I so agree that this was very old school Disney for me. Every character was thought out and had a purpose and visually, just stunning. Frame by frame stunning. Most importantly, though, the storytelling was good, which has been a problem with Disney films for awhile (and I'm not counting Pixar as Disney ,even though they technically are, because Pixar is it's own studio and Disney Feature is it's own as well- I consider them separately). Overall, wonderful film.

Yes, the detail in the animation was completely awesome and I agree. Pixar is like a completely different animal than Disney. I think Disney is realizing that what made them famous was their ability to create a fairytale and they should stick to that.
