the world of animation

In the last couple weeks, I have watched quite a few movies. I already told you about Aladdin, after that was the Jungle Book. Wow- that Rudyard Kipling. I can only imagine the types of conversation that he and Walt Disney might have had. I have to say though, that I enjoyed the music. This was followed by Bedknobs and Broomsticks and Mary Poppins. I have to say, They both brought back so many memories, and I still would think of them as Family Favorites. If I had kids, I would force them to watch them (but they would also have to watch the Apple Dumpling Game. Oh Don Knotts, the world is a little sadder without you in it)

Yesterday, I finally got around to watching Kung Fu Panda. The animation was nothing special, but it was a cute story. I would watch it again.

Sorry that there is not much detail in the reviews, I have to work

Not Again.

So, I recently had a former classmate join facebook. I have no Idea who he is, and he does not have a name or a good picture. Someone help me out- has this happened to you?

Also- congrats to a certain Ironman, or IronLady.

A Disney Resurgence

I watched Aladdin the other night. In my mind, this is where disney flicks went down hill, yet, I have liked a few others (Lion King, Wall-E, Nemo, Bugs Life) but they were different. To me, Disney is all about classic animation, and racial profiling- I jest, not really. Aladdin was the first animated feature to employ computer animation which allows for some great things, but also pulls disney from its roots. I feel that I will be delving in to the Disney and Pixar flicks again ( I love Pixar), and I might even revisit non-animated Disney Classics. I will see if my opinion has changed over the years.

sorry for the disjunct thinking.
