Tangled (Aka Disney has been Reborn.)
Disney has cleaned up it's name for me. Perhaps this is a sign of a new Era of Animation. The new generation may have hope if Disney starts making movies that good on regular basis. They teach morals and the better things about humanity.
The voice acting is very fitting. The animation is brilliant. The music is Little Mermaid good. Anyone who still hasn't seen this either go to the cinema or download it somewhere. It's very very very worth to see. One of the best CG movies ever made up there with Wall-E and How To Train Your Dragon.

Well, the only canon sequel (main canon) that Disney has ever created was Bernard and Bianca Down Under. The rest of them have been sped-up productions made to cash in. But I really like the main line, which I dare say has been good all along (Home on the Range, Brother Bear, the Princess and the Frog, all of these are recent productions that have held a very high standard. ^_^

(Last time I saw Scott Pilgrim, before that was Transformers. The first one.)
@ ILB: THE RESCUERS DOWN UNDER! YES! ASK HER TO MARRY YOU, YOU DOLT!

Oh, that was the name. I had forgotten; it is called "Bernard og (and) Bianca" over here. ^_^

Disney has made some really good, under appreciated movies in the last few years. I mean is sucks to see these good stories and characters fall under the burden of "Hurdur! You're not Aladdin, not a good character" really gets me. I mean sure it's not what we grew up with but these movies were really good and fun to watch.
(*Note: I don't dislike Aladdin, just used as an example)

"Oh this isn't what I grew up with, it's different, I don't like it." People constantly rage on the new age of cartoons for not focusing on the same things they did when we were kids, but that doesn't make it bad! I mean, the generations are changing, the creators of said shows and movies have to make it appeal today's youth, not the people who were kids 10 years ago. They honestly aren't expecting to have 20 years olds watch the shows, so they make them to appeal to a younger generation.
The fact is, that every ten years or so, the media changes. What we value and want in life shift to something new and we have to learn to live with that. I know for a fact that my parents HATED the shows I watched when I was younger, cause they found them disgusting and didn't thing they were right for kids. The same thing is happening now a days.
Life is a circle that is constantly on repeat.

Oh, yes. I was not saying that I hate everything new. Still I seem to prefer those films I mentioned rather than those I see today (that said, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is also among my favourites, and I really liked Home on the Range and Brother Bear). ^_^

It looked cliche.

Not just Miyazaki, but Shinichirō Watanabe, Hideaki Anno, Mamoru Oshii, and Satoshi Kon.

Lumping it into the same category as Wall-E and How to Train Your Dragon only perturbs me. Those were exceptional movies, and they certainly weren't musicals.
- 21 December 2010 - 09:40 PM
I wouldn't lump it in with Wall-E. How to Train YOur Dragon maybe, the animation was very similar, and I didn't really like either. Tangled was better than I thought, but How to Train Your Dragon completely butchered the book series. It basically stripped the characters and wrote a whole new plot line.

The plot seemed incredibly mediocre, and to be honest, most film plots seem mediocre these days, animated or not
There are a few gems though, I think people look back on the past automatically disregarding the existence of "bad" films, if you looked properly I don't think the ratio of good to bad films would be much different nowadays

And who is to say that this is a bad thing? Yes I like it when the movie follows the book closely, but let's be honest, Who wants to see the exact same story line over again? Besides, there are somethings that you just can not translate well from Book to movie. Besides if the new story line is written well and enjoyably, I don't see a problem.
It was a cute little movie with a cute story line based on a kids book series, it didn't have to be amazing just entertaining. This is your guy's problem, you are going to kids movies and expecting great, deep story lines. That is extremely hard to accomplish in a children's movie cause it has to be fast pace to keep it's young audience paying attention. I don't go to these movies and expect to be blown away, I want to be entertained for a few hours which all of these movies do.

Oh get off my nuts you dick.

It was one movie.
If you need evidence that a single good movie does not improve the chances of related movies being good, I ask you to remember every sequel ever.

you revived a really shitty thread from over a year ago, he is pretty justified there bro. what is it about people, that they see a year old thread, they want to revive it. if it died, it means people got tired of talking about it, and the thread serves no purpose other than a log of a conversation that died long ago. there is no tangled sequel, no update, nothing new involving the subject matter to be discussed. you just wanted to throw in your two cents in on a dumb, old, tired topic.

Lol stop being obvious

The Princess and the Frog and Bolt were both superior films, which felt much more "Disney".

I enjoyed Tangled, but it was a bit disappointing too. It was a clever spin on the story, and it had the classic Disney look, and it didn't stray from the classic Disney formula - I almost completely disagree that it included lame Dreamworks style jokes. I think the worst thing about it was that it wasn't funnier and smarter and more memorable generally - it's like <name your favourite boring traditional canonical Disney film here>. And it did suffer from being in 3D with vaguely proportional human beings - a de facto Dreamworks trademark that Pixar does so well to avoid.
These types of movies are great. I just hope that Disney keeps on pushing with Princess and the Frog type traditional animation for some of them, at least.
