Follow your Dream

At last Tangled has arrived at the cinemas!!!!.... and as a big Disney fan this movie sure did not disappoint..... i was looking forward to the amazing animation and at the same time scared that the film might be ruined by a over the top stereotypical and corny story. but as usual this disney movie carried feelings of hope, adventure, love, betrayal, excitement, friends ship, longing, angst.... from the very first song you are wrapped in the strings of the disney dream... and like puppets you are carried along moving with every tug of emotion.....
scarlly enough i felt very connected to the character 'Flower' or 'Rapunzel'.... the scene where she has just left the tower and she is embracing the world around her.... i reacted the same way when i left home and ventured to brisbane to follow my dreams as an animator......
i felt that this movie drew alot from previous disney classics... reminding me of films such as the hunchback...., the little mermaid, and sinbad( and yes i know that Sinbad is not a Dinsey film) .... and yet collectively it still felt orignal.....
i enjoyed this movie immensly and i hope to see it again soon :D

memo to me..... do not suggest to go and see a Newly released Disney movie on a first date.... the fact that i get so involved in the movie scares people away.
another memo to me.... yes pulling faces and jumping up and down in chair giggling is not cool
hehe i am looking forward to another year of animation at southbank.... missing the class alot

  1. I sat like a huge bearded rock troll amongst a sea of seat kicking munchkins, who were giggling, pulling faces, and jiggling around in their seats. They were pretty cool with not worrying about being cool.

    I liked that the main character was Rapunzel and her character developed well through the story. The villain's demise was also very well handled.

    Unfortunately, I think that film maker's have cottoned on to the sidekicks having the most fun. They have done this (remember Katy in Horton Hears a Who?) because it seemed they flew under the stakeholder radar. I think the chameleon was a bit too directed. Maximus the horse got away with a bit more.

    I think if a first date gets scared away by an animator being wrapped up in a movie it is a good thing.
