OMG. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS MOVIE! I mean, at first I was like, "Wow, this is going to be lame." and then i entered my Disney Mania phase. ^^. This means that currently, in my discs, I have Mulan, Bambi, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, along with some others. Only Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella to go!
So I decided, "Okay, well, I guess i'll watch Tangled."
I am SO glad I did.
At first I started off thinking, "Okay, she has superlong hair. That's kinda weird." And the friendly, sweet horse Maximus turned out to be this scary white horse that freaked me out.
Disney doesn't know how to promote its movies anymore.
But overall, I am in love with Tangled. No joke. Mandy Moore is amazing (although my friends would say no way!) My friends don't understand my disney and pixar mania. They're all saying, "It's Disney! Disney's lame!"
But my sister told me something that was the truth (funny and profound at the same time). When you're in elementary school and they go, "We're watching Finding Nemo Today!" everyone goes "YAYYYY!" and cheers. In Middle School, the teachers go, "We're watching Finding Nemo today!" and the kids snicker and talk loudly all throughout the movie, saying, "Wow, do they think we're babies?" And in high school, when the teacher goes, "We're watching Finding Nemo today!" all the high school kids cheer and start quoting parts of it. Because the sad truth is, we all want to be kids again. We all want to feel that gentle innocence.
Another memory trip through the lane--creativity that the kids have. When I was really little, my sister was asleep, but I would stay up and wait for the 'dots'. And in the dark, they would come. Brightly colored, whirling sparkles that flew around me and twinkled. And then there were fairies that sparkled and landed on my bedsheets, talked and giggled to me. All throughout it, my family would stay asleep.
I don't know whether I was crazy or not, but when I hit seven, the dots could only be seen from the corner of my eye and I couldn't look at them directly. The fairies would alight on my bed, but I couldn't look at them either without them melting away.
And now, I can't see them anymore. No matter what, the dots won't come back.
Maybe when my friends get older, they'll understand. But right now, let them think that Disney and Pixar are lame. But the last laugh is the best, ;)
Yeesh. I wrote an essay.
