Tangled

I dressed up as Rapunzel for Halloween this year! (“How old are you again?” you ask. “Does it matter?” I respond.) Subject This story is, as most Disney fairytales are, very LOOSELY based on the tale of Rapunzel. Normal people would complain about how Disney strays from the original stories, but in my opinion, variation is a bit necessary. Have you read the story of Rapunzel? She’s not exactly the most heroic of characters and you’re not exactly even rooting for her as you read it. I think the Brothers Grimm were more observant Narrators than passionate ones. So, the characters that … Continue reading Tangled

Guardians of the Galaxy – Live Reaction

Yep, all my live reactions are from movies that came out a LONG time ago. XP FYI, this is the first Guardians of the Galaxy, not Vol. 2. Wait, I’m confused–how old is Star Lord? If he was a kid in ’88, won’t he be super old in Infinity War? “These fool things.” What a grandpa thing to say. Actually, Peter’s dad gave you the tumor. PSYCH! It makes me so sad that he doesn’t take her hand and the last thing she gets before she dies is his rejection. But also, THE POOR KID!!!! (Side note: why were the mom’s … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy – Live Reaction

Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale – Live Reaction

I have seen this movie before…about a hundred times…but not in a while, so here’s my equivalent of a reaction video! Is the universal opening good? Yes! Better than the other ones! (Although I’m pretty sure I could make the base of Earth in PlayCanvas…) I love this art in the intro credits! I also love the song! This movie is what got me into fashion drawing. Yes, it is. Directed by William Lau. He has made a lot of good Barbie movies. The Queen Ariana dress. With the Queen Ariana actress. Why are the actresses acting so ridiculously?! How … Continue reading Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale – Live Reaction

Barbie as Rapunzel

This is the second ever CGI Barbie movie, for y’all’s information. Subject The old Barbie movies have terrible graphics, but to be honest, the moving part of the animation is pretty okay. Rapunzel is a great character. She’s like 2015 Cinderella–good and kind and loving even when others (*cough*Gothel*cough*) are cruel to her. Another incredibly important thing to note: THIS MOVIE HAS DRAGONS!!! YES! DRAGONS! I loooove dragons, so this is great. Sure, they’re the super stereotypical dragons with large hinds and wings that are too small to be physically able to fly them, but also…la la LA…they’re purple!!! Plus they have personality. Maybe to … Continue reading Barbie as Rapunzel

Cinderella (2015)

I have watched this movie, like, twenty times. Twenty-one, actually, I watched it again yesterday. So, I could have done this review like a year ago, but better late than never! Subject The movie is a live-action reboot of the 1950 Disney film, which is an adaptation of the fairy tale by Charles Perrault. (Yeah, I know there are actually a lot more versions than just Perrault. I think I have studied “Cinderella” more than any other fairy tale because I was going to write a fractured fairy tale novel. FYI, the project has been put away for now.) It … Continue reading Cinderella (2015)

Cars 3

This was OBVIOUSLY not nearly as good as the first two, in the same way the second was OBVIOUSLY not nearly as good as the first one. The quality was pretty much what I expected, maybe a little better. I am willing to accept it, though, as legitimate, good Cars canon, because it wasn’t as heartbreaking as I thought it would be when I *sob* saw the teaser and *sob* saw McQueen’s crash. (I do feel a little cheated, though, since the crash wasn’t a huge part of the movie. Eh. What’s a teaser for except to be a red herring?) They … Continue reading Cars 3
