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
The film's story is about an exiled poet/artist named Mustafa and his relationship with a struggling widow (and his housekeeper) Kamila and her mute daughter Almitra. The film is also about the impact Mustafa's words had on the townspeople, but the town's militant government thinks those words are seditious...stupid!
I thought the casting was excellent with Liam Neeson, Salma Hayek and Frank Langella. I don't have any particular scene I like, because I love it from beginning to end. So like I had said this film visually astounding with great animation.
The film started 20 years ago when the happy little trolls were being harvested from their tree by the ogre-ish Bergens as food. They eat the trolls by a means to be happy. Fortunately the trolls led by their king Peppy escape through a tunnel during a Bergen festival, where their young prince would taste his first troll. Now years later in their new forest village, the optimistic and extremely happy Princess Poppy organizes a big party to celebrate their escape. But the village's grey, glum, survivalist nay-sayer Branch thinks it's a terrible idea, for the loud music and bright, glitterly lights would alert the Bergens. And it has when a Bergen chef who was banished on that very date 20 years ago, spotted the party's lights and captures nine of the trolls, who are Poppy's friends. So Poppy takes it upon herself to ask Branch to go with her to Bergen Town to save her friends. Of course Branch refuses and Poppy sets off by herself. But after an encounter with a bunch of spider-like monsters, Branch saves Poppy knowing she wouldn't last long beyond their village. So the two trolls decide to continue the journey to Bergen Town. And that is all I could tell you folks.
All I have to say is that I love the film's animation, humor and music.
The story is about Max living a good life in his New York apartment with his beloved owner Katie. That is until Katie brings home a big, shaggy stray name Duke, who Max thought is trying to muscle in on his happy home. One day during a walk with the dog-walker, the resentive Duke tricks Max into travelling far into the city, and they are attacked by a feral cat gang in an alley. The cats remove Max and Duke's collars and the dogs are caught by the city's Animal Control. Fortunately the two dogs were saved by a rogue band called "The Flushed Pets". That is all I could tell you folks.
I don't have a favorite scene (as I said many times), because I love the whole film from beginning to end. I also love the movie's humor and great animation. One more thing to point out is that Max was so cute as a puppy! So overall, this is a great film for all pet lovers.
I find this film from England's Halas and Batchelor Cartoon Films really well-done and I don't consider is "Disney-ish" as some think with the dark, violent content that's in it. Also I really must commemorate on the one-man performance by Maurice Denham, the Mel Blanc of British radio. So overall, I love this beautifully animated film. Though I would advise you folks not to show the film to your children around 7 to 10 years old.
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!
