I love to read books (I am a literary woman),I'm a cat lover; and also...I am autistic (but and I'm damn proud of it). And as for movies, I am an animation buff (mostly 2D), and do I love literary films (films based on books...especailly books I have).
Reading,Writing and World Mythology
Animation that I love:
Gulliver's Travels (1939),
Disney's Sleeping Beauty,
An American Tail,and...
Kung Fu Panda
In this Lumber-Jack short, Popeye rescues Olive from the river, because Pierre Bluto threw her in for no liking her spinach. I love Popeye's reaction upon hearing what Olive said "Anyone who hates spinach is my emeny!" So Popeye challenges Pierre to Lumber-Jack man-off contest; I love Popeye's "I'll do anything that you do," in a sing-song way. Of course Popeye outdid Bluto in the competition, and then the two (Popeye & Bluto) have a fist-fight while trying to keep their balance on logs floating down the river! Naturally Popeye has his can of spinach on him and wins in the end. Speaking of the ending, I thought it was funny that Popeye and Olive force-fed Bluto mouthfuls of spinach, and Bluto is bawling like a baby when they feed him.
Overall I love this cartoon - from beginning to end.
Like I said: I don't have any particular scene I like, because I love the whole cartoon. Another good Popeye Halloween short is Ghosks is the Bunk from 1939, where Popeye and Olive used invisible paint to pretend to be ghosts to scare Bluto.
This film is fictional account of the creation of The Book of Kells, an illuminated Latin manuscript containing the four Gospels of the New Testament. The book is famous for its elaborate illuminations depicting both Celtic knotwork and Christian imagery. The film's young hero Branden is taken under the tutelage of Brother Aidan, a celebrated master illuminator to help complete the precious book before Viking raiders attack the Abbey of Kells. Branden also recieves help from a young fairy girl name Aisling.
So that is all I could tell you folks, and overall Kells is one of the best animated movies ever made in Europe with plenty of fantasy, adventure, humor and beautiful animation. Also I do love the little cat Pangur Bán...she (or he) is cute!
The story is about the tomboyish Princess Merida, who grows tired of her daily life of restricting princess lessons from her queenly mother Elinor. Merida then decides to go against the traditions of her royal history, refusing to take a husband from the oldest son of one of three lords from other clans; her actions had cause chaos and controversy. Seeking to change her fate, Merida receives a spell from a reclusive, eccentric forest witch, but by doing this, unleashes a terrible ancient curse. That is all I could tell you. And I don't favorite a scene (as I said many times), because I love the whole film from beginning to end.
One I would like point out is that why they at Pixar would choose the name "Merida" because some Scottish names are hard for kids to pronounce. Another reason is that I thought since the film is set in the Dark Ages, in the pre-written times of a Celtic people known as the Pictish, predating the Roman era in Scotland's history, where Latin was still spoken...and it is a Latin name; also I'd read it in The Art of Brave book.
My favorite villains are Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Talia Al Ghul and the Mad Hatter. So anyway the series and Tim Burton's film version are the reasons I love the Batman.
