Forgive me for watching a relatively recent movie as my new thing today, my daughter was home sick from school and I’ve been keeping her company. Seemed like the perfect time to thow in Tangled, which unlike my daughter, I have not already seen a half dozen times.
I also have to say that it’s really well done. It’s telling of the times when the villain is a passive agressive mother figure instead of, say, a dragon.
It’s a really interesting take on Rapunzel and I feel really good about Audrey being exposed to a pretty strong female lead. Sure she ends up with (spoiler) the boy in the end but you can tell she’s doing it for the right reasons. Plus, this movie is on par with Pixar in some scenes for sure beauty adn imagination.
And for the first time in a very long time I actually found some of the songs in a Disney film sticking with me after watching it.
I would also like to point out the movie poster attached to this post. We saw this around town leading up to the films release and I’d marvel at it every time we passed by. I love its simplicity and ability to telegraph the story in a single glance.
