What's up, guys? Tigerfan45 here, and I'm back again. In terms of animal movies I like, I've covered dinosaurs, lions, and Mice. So, our newest addition to our movie menagerie is the largest land mammal in the world: the elephant.
Dumbo I remember is one of my childhood movies, and, one that really got me fascinated with circuses and elephants. First up, I love the songs, from "When I see an elephant fly" to the legendary "Pink elephants on Parade" scene. Each one is catchy to listen to, and I always find myself humming them at the end. The movie is also good at its interactions with the characters. Timothy is a very likable character, and he's always at Dumbo's side, standing up for him against bullies and trying to make him famous. The crows were also very enjoyable. But, what I like about this movie the most is the moral, which, the way I interpreted it was that just because you look a little different doesn't mean that you're a freak. So, overall, I really enjoy Dumbo. I'd say it's definitely worth checking out.
#2: Elephant Tales
I remember watching Elephant Tales a whole lot, and, I really love it. What I like about this film the most is the characters. I love the relationship between Tutu and Zef. It reminds me very much of Anna and Elsa's relationship with each other. Like most siblings, they fight and argue, but, they do kiss and make up, like when Zef apologized to Tutu for calling him stupid. Chump the chimp was also very funny, particularly with his interactions with Stretch the giraffe. The cheetahs were also funny, and their narration S were enjoyable. I also liked how part of the film shows how elephants and other animals view humans, like how they call poachers "the badness". So, overall, I'd say Elephant Tales is definitely worth checking out. I'll be sure to watch it many more times.
#3: Horton Hears a Who
Horton Hears a Who is my favorite adaptation of a Dr. Seuss book. It stays ver faithful to the book, and they keep it in rhyme (something both The Lorax and The Cat in the Hat failed at). I also like the fact that the story had me guessing. There are parts that I thought were going to use a common cliche, but, they didn't! I also thought that the characters were memorable! Horton, himself was a very likable character, and his voice actor, Jim Carrey does a good job. The who's are cool, though the way the council treats the mayor is very mean spirited. I mean, he has more authority than they do. Shouldn't he fire them? But, honestly, that's just a knitpick. Overall, I think that Horton Hears A Who is a decent movie. It has a good story, funny jokes, and likable characters. I'd say it's worth watching.
#4: 'Whispers: An Elephant's Tale
I remember watching Whispers over and over again when I was a kid. And, as an adult, I still like it. What it does best is showing the audience what it's like to be an elephant. Because, as all the elephants try to make their journey to the great River, they encounter different obstacles on the way, such as fierce lions and greedy poachers (or, as the elephants call them, "takers"). I also like how it accurately portrays how elephants really are, like how the male elephants hung out in a bachelor herd, or how half-tusk draws up water for Groove. Speaking of which, our two leads, Whispers and Groove, are very likable. Groove at first saw Whispers as an annoying little pest, but, as the movie progresses, she grows to like him, and, likewise, Whispers sees her as a surrogate mother figure. So, overall, I love this movie. I will be sure to watch it many more times.
So, those are my picks. Did you like any of these movies? Which animals should I cover next? See you next time!
