Disney Is My Life <3

Like is not a strong enough word. I LOVE Disney movie. And by Disney movies, I mean the classics, the ones that count. The ones that were released during the Disney Renaissance('89-'99) are my favorites. The other day, my mom was making me make a list of things that make me happy. On my list there were two things, like, music and oceans I don't really remember, and Disney movies. My favorites are The Lion King (best movie EVER), Pocahontas (fueled my passion for native american culture), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (made me go read the book... which is nothing like the movie) and Tarzan, which was just good. But I like older Disney movies, too. The Aristocats? Never get tired of that one. The Jungle Book,  Fox and the Hound, those are classics too. My mother told me that when I was 2, 3 and 4, I would sit completely still, unmoving, silent, and watch The Lion King over and over.... I still do it now.

 

It just makes me mad that nowadays, there's no magic. I can't explain it, but all the old movies had this... something about them. Today's Disney movies just go for cheap laughs (and don't get me started on the Princess and the Frog). I think the only Disney movies I've really liked since 2000 are Lilo and Stitch and Brother Bear. After that everything just went downhill. That makes me really sad because I loved the old movies. They never should have changed. h, and Meet the Robinsons. That was a good one.

 

You know, I think it has something to do with the low death toll. If you think about it, in almost all of the classics, there are ridiculous deaths. (Bambi's mother, Mufassa and Scar, Clayton, the baby gorilla, Sabor, and Tarzan's parents, an entire army in Mulan, Frollo, Quasimodo's mother, Kocoum, John Smith got shot, the list goes on). Did anyone else notice that no one dies anymore? I think that's why they aren't as good anymore. They sugarcoat everything and go for cheap laughs.
