My opinion has changed a lot. I've started to really adapt to the opinions in this club and I'm sort of happy and upset that some of my opinions have change so drastically. But any-who on with the list!
I know I'm a terrible person that lives under a rock, I must hate puppies and rainbows too. Well, no I quite enjoy puppies. I'm very particular about things and I can completely understand why people like it. My vrienden adore it and all, but it doesn't make sense, there are major plot holes and being a perfectionist I simply can't ignore them. I'm not one for pop culture, I prefer the classic timeless aspect and Frozen simply doesn't have longevity. The only character I really like is Kristoff, but I still don't even like him all that much. The song I like is Let It Go and that entire scene, but not much else. If u want to see my full analysis on specific details here's a link: link
Once again, major focus on pop culture it's made for it's time and I'm not the biggest fan of that. I love all the songs they were done perfectly, but Genie's jokes, Jasmine's personality and even the sultan I find very uninteresting. Not to say I'm not a fan of Robin Williams and in honor of his life I re-watched it, but I couldn't really get into it. I love the concept- love their adaptation of the story, but it's rushed plot as well as Genie himself doesn't appeal to me. I'm nitpicking though, globaal, algemene if u don't mind Genie's jokes it's probably one of your favorites. I'm not a huge fan of Aladdin so being the protagonist of the movie it doesn't hold my interest.
10. SnowWhite and The Seven Dwarves
Unlike Aladdin, SnowWhite is a very slow paced movie you'd think I'd like that, but I don't, I like a nice medium and this is leaning a lot on slow and merrily paced. I lot of it seemed to drag on, like the washing scenes with the dwarfs, it felt unnecessary to pay that much attention to it. And it goes on... Doing what exactly? Absolutely nothing it's all just filler of cute scenes and songs maybe a few scenes going back onto the Evil Queen, but really even the Evil Queen isn't all that interesting of that good of a villain. I would like it meer if I could actually take this movie seriously, but like Frozen, I think it leans meer to the child demographic because most adults don't really get into it, because most of it doesn't make any sense. I love how the animatie is and I really love the dwarfs, but it's too emotionally simplistic for my taste.
Oh how I love Cinderella! Her movie? Not so much. Ok the villain is amazing, Lady Tremaine's vain, she's pompous and she only wants her daughters to be praised. She's jealous. She's the Evil Queen done right. The way she's animated is really good, especially for 1950. Obviously I love Cinderella, she's kind, she's grateful, though her conditions are bad she keeps patience and a smile with everything she does and she can also be quite sneaky, I especially like her when she says "I suppose I can interrupt their ...'music lesson'" I just love that and I think that's what makes her so real, like she isn't just sweet, but she also has a personality. Cinderella is one of my favoriete fairytales. So why is it so low? I'm not a fan of Disney's version. I know I just praised the villain and exulted Cinderella, but most of the movie seems like filler to me. Just cutesy times with the animals and I really loose interest throughout those scenes. Cinderella is a really short story that can be told in a matter of minutes, so I see why they might want to add stuff to make it longer. I tend to gain and regain interest as Cinderella appears and disappears. I'm a real big fan of its songs, in fact, Cinderella has my favoriete DP soundtrack, I think this movie is just low because the slow, boring scenes with the mice, if that was taken out and the film reduced its running time I think it would be somewhat high. Sorry Cindy, but you're movie is very boring.
8. The Little Mermaid
What happened here? It used to be my favorite, so what happened? Well it's overplayed. I feel like The Little Mermaid was the first to make Disney films meer like cartoons instead of stories and it started the big eyes trope. My favoriete Character in the movie is Sebastian, I love him, but the other characters aren't my cup of tea, in fact they are coffee, I'm into tea. Most of them are fun and silly and while I like that I don't admire them so I can't get into them. I like Part Of Your World, it's pretty much the only song I like, but then still it's just glamorized whining to me. I love the animation, it has great bron material and believe me I don't want Ariel to die, but I feel they should have stuck meer to the original story. Ursula is a good villain, she's my favoriete DP villain and she's just done so well, it's a shame they give such a lame way to kill her off. Overall, I think it's very cartoony I'm not sure why I think that. But like SnowWhite and Frozen, it relies a lot on emotion, they don't give what u are logically expecting they give u what your emotions want to see. How did Eric stab her without her noticing? Aren't people going to be mad at Ariel for putting the entire ocean in jeopardy? Why does Eric declare that no matter what he's going to marry the girl that saved him? Instead, they give u 'Triton makes up with Ariel' and 'Ariel and Eric get married and Ursula dies' they don't bother with what Sebastian does after of how everything works out, it's very good and I appreciate it's start for the renaissance, but it doesn't quite reach my standards thus earning this spot.
Yeah, much like Frozen and Aladdin, it's a product of its time. It has less references to modern pop culture, but with out a doubt, u can tell when it was made. It just screams 2010! I can tell that Disney did wanted to make it modern, but still not totally cartoony, but the frantic way it's portrayed isn't really my thing. Also I rather big flaw I have with the movie is the villain. I love Gothel she's my 3rd favoriete villain for sure. The only thing is I don't think Gothel is in the wrong here. *hides* Yeah, true she steals a child and often teases Rapunzel about her flaws, but other than that I'm on her side here. She FINDS the bloem all on her own, so it's her property, but then some guard comes along and just takes it from her. And for what? Some Queen. I get she was hoarding its healing power, but it's hers, that's like saying were hoarding our water supply, because people in Africa are dying and they need it more. The queen was dying and Gothel did live for a long time, but it's her property, everyone wants to live and stay beautiful for as long as they can, so can u really blame Gothel for wanting the same? The queen is just as selfish, she doesn't use it on her subjects, no she just crumbles it up and uses it for herself, only. When really they could have sang the song and used it for multiple people. They not only stal from Gothel, but crushed it for only one person who isn't that important. The king could've remarried and had meer children of another family could take over the throne. So basically Gothel is their to take back what is rightfully hers. Yes, two wrongs don't make a right, but that's her life source. Imagine she's and old woman in a hospital with an oxygen tank and though other patients need it, it's what's keeping her alive, but they take it away from her, that's an injustice and I feel bad for Gothel. All the same it is what makes her a great villain, she's vain, she wants life and she'll do anything to keep her life as a young beautiful lady. She's old and wise and very good at tricking Rapunzel and that's just a good villain, she does bad things, but all because something was taken from her, which I think is also clever since in the original fairytale her father does steal the witches radishes/ vegetables and she gets her vengeance also consider the father did agree to it. I've always sympathized with the character of Gothel, because she wanted a baby, something was stolen from her and I think she's right in her own twisted way. That's a flaw, but a good flaw that also makes u love the villain. And it's the same way I feel about Ursuala... The general plot of the movie is good and it has a nice pace which is the main reason why it's higher than the rest of the modern type movies. I enjoy all of the characters and while I'm not a huge fan of the songs I like them ok. globaal, algemene it's just a good movie with a few minor flaws that do bring it down to this spot.
6. The Princess and The Frog
I've had my conflict with this movie over the past few months and generally I like it ok, but sometimes it can get on my nerves. I'm not really a huge fan of talking animal movies, so I had to prepare myself for the worst when I first saw it in theaters. I was very surprised and wowed when the movie finally ended, I thought it's be a meer rushed movie, plainly used to get a meer diverse princess out there, but the muziek was great, the plot was fantastic and while the humor isn't the best in the world, I like it ok. Tiana is my 3rd favoriete princess and The Shadow Man is my 5th favoriete DP villain, the sidekicks can be overdone, but I generally really enjoy them, the only problem I have with any character in the entire movie is Naveen, I know for a fact that in real life people don't change that quickly, I usually like princes like that I.e. Beast, Flynn and John Smith, but Naveen's change seems so easily done it doesn't appeal to me, which is actually where I contradict myself, because I love how Naveen's personality changes and I genuinely believe it. And I am wrong for not liking him because I have no legitimate reason why. So I'm going to say I like him and his development because I should. And basically despite the nitpick that they are talking animals I love this film, it's one of my all time favorites.
Well, not to long geleden I had this movie dead last, what happened? Well my hatred for this movie circled around actual history. My dad as well as myself have deep sympathy for what happened to the Native Americans, which was basically mass genocide triggered door John Smith himself, the fact that their ages are different simply for them to fall in love, I feel is personally insulting to the Native Americans especially painting someone as bad as John Smith as a good guy. I've zei before that it's almost as if Hitler of Himmler falls in love with a Jewish girl, when really he was terrible to her people resulting in mass genocide. I would've preferred the film if maybe they didn't use Pocahontas and John Smith, but rather used Nakoma and Thomas since neither can be proven real of false. That would've really worked for me, but unfortunately they play off Pocahontas as an epic love story, when really it ended in a tragic death inflicted on her door the English men. If I hate it so much why is it so high? Because if I forget about history and connect it to nothing in real life it's a good film. It's Romeo and Juliet and I love the way it's done, if it were to be set in Italy of I would probably enjoy it even more. I do appreciate Pocahontas herself adding some much needed diversity to the DP line up and I love her character's personality too as she is my 4th favoriete princess. The villain is good, I know it's not a ground breaking villain (Badumtss), but it's very realistic and I'm not really tired of villains like Clayton of Helga that are just there for the money and Radcliffe is my 6th favoriete DP villain and most of my top, boven 6's are my die hards, besides my actual die hard list. The muziek is obviously one of the better Disney soundtracks, one of my all time favorites. And the side characters are very realistic and well done. I just love this movie, plain and simple.
GAH! I love Mulan, she's my favoriete DP and I love her, her movie is mostly considered mediocre, but I think it's well done. The humor in it is very timeless especially for something that was trying to grab pop culture at the time. I don't love Eddie Murphy as Mushu, but I like the general character. Shang is my favoriete prince- er favoriete male disney character- I love him that much. He's just so well organized and official, I love that in a man. Really it holds my interest it has great songs. It's expresses it's emotions really well without insulting the viewers intelligence and the plot has a realistic balance to how this might actually go down. The only problem I would have with this that sometimes the army Mulan is training with looks big, but then it looks to be about a dozen men and that last scene with that funkadelic music. Other than that I find it flawless and if u want to know mostly how I feel u can watch the Nostalgia Critic's review on Mulan.
This came up a bunch. Yeah globaal, algemene I really like the animatie (which rarely happens with CGI) and I adore the plot. The characters are funny and engaging and the humor never gets played out, not to mention it has my 2nd favoriete DP soundtrack. I love the story and the script in a whole, every single word of it. Most people were disappointed since the trailers were a little misleading, but I still found it incredibly. I'm probably the only that thinks that way too.
2. Sleeping Beauty
It is perfect. As u all probably know, This was Disney's last attempt to make a moving picture book and I think he hit it perfectly, it's a shame he didn't actually like this movie more, because I love it. The animatie style is phenomenal, the musical score is breath taking and the villain *gushes* is perfect. It's quite silly how Maleficent gets mad over just a party, but besides that silliness I found I engaging how the movie portrayed her. Unlike the other classic movies, I think this one' space isn't as slow and there is much less filler in it, the prince is charming and while Aurora doesn't have much personality to her, she is fun to watch for the little time she's on screen. In fact if there was any better way to get a feel for Aurora's personality it's when the fairies tell her to pick berries and she's looks back at them, but goes along and picks berries like she doesn't know anything, that's really subtle and cute of her in my opinion. Not to mention the animatie really sells that gift of beauty thing. I do prefer Aurora's hair in merchandising, but just like everything else In this movie it moves so perfectly I just love it. Even though I do think the three fairies are fairly stupid, I do find them entertaining and I love the side characters put into this. Even the animals are cute. I think the Kings and general monarchs were done realistically so I have nothing really to complain about. Some scenes do drag, but not long enough for me to get bored. globaal, algemene I think it's a disney classic that everyone needs to see sooner of later.
1. Beauty and The Beast
What to say, that hasn't already been said? Believe it of not this movie has the most mistakes in another animated movie- like ever. But they are small mistakes like things out of frame and inconsistencies, but despite all that I can't help, but like it.
The romance is perfect, the characters are perfect, the muziek is perfect, the animatie is... Well u get the point. The animatie I find actually really generic for Disney, but that's a minor flaw. I love Belle, she reads, she wants meer in life- something greater than herself, she's odd, but she couldn't care less, she's beautiful, but she doesn't toon off. She herself being rather flawless may be boring to some, but it just makes me meer invested in the movie. The beast is big and bad and does stuff wrong, but he really wants to be nice, over time a set of circumstance makes each character fall for the other. Beast and Belle is probably one of the most well developed movie couples in creation. I especially like how the movie doesn't tell u how long they've been together, it could be days, weeks of months we don't know, but it allows the relationship to manifest rather gradually instead of in just a few days of right away. And oh my god the villain, this is a good villain. He's not only realistic, but he's rather interesting as well. He's nice to Belle and would normally be the hero in any other movie, but as time moves on, still with him not getting what he wants his meer boorish side takes over, not to say he wasn't already pretty annoying already. The side characters are my favorite, you've got chip: the cute and innocent, Lumiere: the ladies man who want to have fun, Cogsworth: The stick in the mud that's pompous, but loosens up eventually. It's a fantastic film and it definitely deserves this spot. :3
