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
This film is loosely based on Julius Lester's take on the stories, and the film starts with a bored little girl named Janey. Then she met up with Br'er Turtle and he told the stories of Br'er Rabbit's madcap adventures. You know, in "Brer Rabbit breaks up The Party" it was kind of mean that the other critters won't let Br'er Rabbit join the party; but he is lucky to have a friend like Br'er Turtle. So anyway, I love this film.
This is an awesome movie. It is very well written, and the animation is really cool! One of the best DC movies along with the live-action Batman movie. The story was perfect, funny full of suspense and really worth the PG-13 rating. I don't have a favorite scene (as I said many times), because I love the WHOLE film from beginning to end.
Under the narration of Sebastian, the story starts with King Triton and his wife, Queen Athena, have seven young daughters, the youngest of whom is Ariel. The entirety of the underwater kingdom of Atlantica is filled with joy, music and laughter. The merfolk are shown relaxing in a lagoon above water, and Triton gives Athena a small music box. A pirate ship approaches and they attack, stealing the merpeople's possessions. Everyone escapes except Queen Athena, who is crushed by the pirate ship. Devastated by Athena's death, Triton throws the music box away and bans music from the kingdom. Ten years later, Triton's daughters live under a strict schedule maintained by their governess, Marina Del Rey (an original villianess voiced by Sally Field; and no relations to the two witches what so ever). Marina hates her job and longs for Sebastian's, who is the king's attache. Ariel is frustrated by their current lifestyle, which brings her into conflict with the strict King Triton. During their morning "walk", Ariel tickles her sister Adella with kelp, and she is given the punishment of cleaning barnacles. While carrying out her punishment, Ariel encounters Flounder, a fish, who is making music. That night, Ariel sees Flounder outside the window, and follows him to an underground music club. She is overjoyed by the presence of music, and is shocked when she learns that Sebastian performs at the club. When her presence is revealed, at first all the club patrons flee, but Ariel sings a song explaining her love of music, and she joins the club with an oath...that's all I am telling you all,you will have see it for yourself.
It's great to finally see Ariel's mother Queen Athena, who looks like Ariel; but I can see some differences between mother and daughter: Athena's hair is a different shade of red compare to Ariel, and done up almost like a ponytail. And her eyes I think are green. Overall, Ariel's Beginning is another excellent Disney OAV (original animated video),and prefect to go with the original Little Mermaid film and "Return to the Sea." I love out of Ariel's sisters Alana (pink fin),Arista (red fin),and Attina (orange fin).
In this animated film based on the popular series of fantasy books, about six friends - a half-elf, a dwarf, a warrior and his twin brother a mage, a knight and a kender (a person that looks like a mini elf) have come together once again after spending five years searching for proof that the gods do in fact exist. Sadly, they unite amidst rumors of a growing evil and an impending war - but now, with horror and chaos looming on the horizon, the goal of their searches may finally be within their grasp in the form of a barbarian warrior princess bearing a mysterious crystal blue staff. A threat like none of them have seen is poised to overtake their homeland, but if these heroes can stand against it, they will become legends.
I had read the trilogy after I had seen the film. I know that is a bit unorthodox to you but...that's me. And now The Dragonlance Chronicles became one of my favorite fantasy trilogies.
I love the "love-triangle" between Tom, Amy, and Becky, it is so funny; who would of thought those girls thought Tom's such a stud. I also love that anthropomorphic animals just like in the tradition of Walt Disney's "Robin Hood" and the "made-for-TV" animated film: Charles Dickens' "David Copperfield."
