Watched Disney Films
|Title||Rating (out of 6 ☆s)||Watched|
|Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs||★★☆☆☆☆ (2/6)||English: December 2011|
|There's nothing lovable in Snow White for me.|
|Alice in Wonderland||★★★★☆☆ (4/6)||English: August 2012|
|It's a great film and very funny and absurd. I do complain about the Queen of Hearts because she is widely recognised as an antagonist, but she literally appears for fifteen minutes and goofs around.|
|Sleeping Beauty||★★★★★★ (6/6)||English: (Can't remember)|
|I'm really digging for the 2014 Maleficent. Aurora is greatly portrayed and "Once Upon a Dream" falls deep into the memory. Also, I prefer her blue dress.|
|The Little Mermaid||★★★★★★ (6/6)||English: Pre-2000|
|I adore Ariel: not only she is a cute red-haired girl, she can also beautifully sing!|
|Beauty and the Beast||★★★★★☆ (5/6)||English: December 2011|
|Belle looks quite good in her peasant outfit, but her ball gown is excellent! Even though she can see light within the Beast, I can't really say I like her "book worm" attitude. I don't know what Disney was thinking writing the scenario... Maybe they wanted to promote book reading, but with a film?|
|Pocahontas||★★★★★★ (6/6)||English: December 2011|
|Pocahontas is great character and I really like her outfit. I think that she might be a bit overmade... I don't think that Indian women back there, bah!, even now, have such strong "I must be independent" attitude. Still, she's great.|
|Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World||★★★★★★ (6/6)||English: August 2012|
|The story is great, but there's one thing I can't understand and it seems that Disney itself doesn't understands it either: Pocahontas choose to live with the newcomer, John Rolfe, instead with her love from the first film, John Smith. Anyone care to explain why's that?|
|The Hunchback of Notre Dame||★★★★★★ (6/6)||December 2011|
|Esmeralda is really wonderful! I love her and that dance before judge Claude Frollo was very risky. I don't even know if I could be as brave as Esmeralda to like Quasimodo from the get-go.|
|Hercules||★★★★★★ (6/6)||English: December 2011|
Polish: August 2012
|Megara is my goddess: she is one of the most realistic animated character I've ever seen. She had her lover left her for another girl, and then she decided to not fall in love again to not feel again the pain when someone leaves. I am so totally against Hercules's physical appearance: he looks gross.|
|Mulan||★★★★☆☆ (4/6)||English: December 2011|
|Mulan is... not what should Disney aim for... She's making word "man" sound like a "chicken wuss".
Edit: To clarify (even though it wasn't brought to my attention) Mulan just simply didn't catch my interest despite her quite impressive story arc.
|Tangled||★★★★★★ (6/6)||Polish: September 4÷5th, 2012|
|Rapunzel is not that much interesting character for me: Disney haven't really had an idea for her. Mother Gothel is probably the best villain I've seen within the Disney franchise: she an "eternal paradox": should die long ago, yet lives, keeps Rapunzel from the evil, yet she (Mother Gothel) is evil, she is self-centered, while Rapunzel is open. Flynn Ryder is awesome, same goes to Pascal. And Maximus...he's not something awesome, but his will to retrieve the crown is great.|
|Atlantis: The Lost Empire||★★★☆☆☆ (3/6)||Polish: September 25th, 2013|
|I really like the architecture presented, but the plot progression seemed to be rushed. Kida is a cute girl, but she has too little screen time and is too much idolised which throws me off.|
|Tarzan II||★★★★★★ (6/6)||English: September 27th, 2013|
|The whole film is just awesome and young Tarzan is just adorable!|
|The Princess and the Frog||★★★★★☆ (5/6)||Polish: November 7th, 2013|
|I'd actually give it six stars, but I felt like Dr. Facilier wasn't given much depth (like I'm not even sure his motives) and I didn't like some slight symbology put into the film, but aside of that I find the story very appealing to me. Also, with such high emphasis put on music, it reminds me of The Little Mermaid which is a big plus for me.|
|Enchanted||★★★★★★ (6/6)||Polish: November 8th, 2013|
|I really loved the film, especially the funny animated begining. Giselle was very charming, and somewhat naive. It was nice to see various subtle references to older animated features, although the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs one was pushed too much in my opinion. I was also in a real enchantment when I saw Giselle's rather simple dress during the ball. Also, I didn't see that ending coming at all.|
|Cinderella||★★★☆☆☆ (3/6)||Polish: January 18th, 2014|
|The Prince is literally nothing in the film; even his father is more involved into his marriage than his own son. Cinderella is also not exactly a good example of a character with all that wishing and dreaming stuff; sure other Disney heroines of that time were also 'all-so-wishing-and-dreamy', but in Cinderella's case it's just ridiculous.|
|Treasure Planet||★★★★★★ (6/6)||Polish: January 19th, 2014|
|I never really thought that Disney actually made a film centered around a guy, it's kind of always a girl they make they main the main protagonist. Some would think that Jim with his background (a single child with only mother to support him and pretty much carefree and stuff) would not be a good role model for kids, but I dare say that Disney did their job well and quite nicely developed his character. It's nice that they didn't give him a girl so the film wouldn't go all 'lovey-dovey' as always the girl would put a man into a shadow.|
|The Black Cauldron||★★★★☆☆ (4/6)||Polish: April 17th, 2015|
|The film is quite good; it was somewhat rather charming despite its lack of Disneyism, like a really memorable ending and characters performing songs and I saw a few opportunities if such thing would happen.
I know I might be asking for a lot, but some characters felt rather underdeveloped (Hen Wen, Eilonwy, Horned King) and in case of Fflewddur Fflam he just seemed to be added purely to give a mature character to the party, but he appears largely irrevelant to the story, except for the ending where he seemed to actually have some influence over the plot.
This movie would fit Kingdom Hearts setting quite well in my opinion, given that the Black Cauldron can revive the dead and Organization XIII would certainly find a use for this or even simply for the fact of Horned King's existence who just teems with darkness even if such concept does not exist in the movie. And I can totally see Sora constantly cheering Taran up who would constantly fail with his every dream.
