My Top Ten Disney Characters: Part 4

WARNING: THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR MULAN AND THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG.

3: Mulan

Can you believe that the movie Mulan will be twenty years old in TWO years? I’m still having a hard time getting my head wrapped around the fact that the first Star Wars movie and Snow White will turn forty and eighty respectively, NEXT YEAR?!

Mulan’s elderly father (the only man in her family) is called up to war but everyone and himself knows that if he goes, he will die. So Mulan takes his place in the army without his or the rest of the family’s knowledge. She is one of (if not THE-) most heroic princesses out there and there are quite a few. She ended up saving China and is the only princess in the line up to not have any royal connections and is in there because of her act of heroism. I think her place is well deserved!

2: Tiana:

”The only way to get what you want is through hard work.” She’s completely right as this is a princess focused, not marrying a prince, but opening a restaurant. Driven by her late father, she is unbelievably strong-willed, she sees something talented with her amf also who watched the movie will know there’s more to her than meets the eye.

My Top Ten Disney Characters: Part 3

The above is my cat Kevin’s attempts at blogging! More on him tomorrow.

5: Mickey Mouse

Ah. We can’t forget one very important thing that Walt Disney himself said: It was all started by a mouse. Mickey has truly stood the test of time so well, he is without a doubt a pop culture icon! Created in 1928, two years from now will be his ninetieth birthday and I  strongly that he will popular as ever when I’m ninety myself.

4: Winnie The Pooh

Pooh is that loveable teddy bear who is usually a nice memory from your childhood. ‘The end? Can’t we not just go back to page one, and start again?’ That line occupied me for hours on end as a kid. Based off of the author of his book A.A Milne’s son’s teddy bear, this fluffy yellow and red bear is the very picture of innocence and happiness, as is his home woods! That silly old bear.

My Top Ten Disney Characters: Part 2

WARNING: THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1991), AND BIG HERO 6.

7: Belle from Beauty And The Beast

Belle is inspiring in that she refuses Gaston’s attempts to get her to marry him and have six or seven sons, she doesn’t want to live up to his sexist expectations for women.

Another amazing thing is when she gives up her own freedom so the beast will let her father go, she’s willing to be a prisoner if it means her father is free, and that is huge.

She also ends up saving the beast at the end of the film, making me love her even more.

6: Baymax

I think you’d be pressed to find a character more huggable than Baymax, created as a robot nurse by Hiro’s brother Tadashi he syas the most hilarious of things like ‘I am not fast’ and ‘hairy baby!’ and my personal favourite ‘oh no!’. I have a soft toy of Baymax and it is so cuddly!

My Top Ten Disney Characters: Part 1:

Today’s Movie Monday will be slightly different as I wanted to give you my top ten Disney characters. This is not going to include Pixar as I have plans to give them their own separate list in the future.

10: Snow White

Honestly this movie brings back a truck load of nostalgia for me and makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, it’s sort of a comfort movie for me and I watch it straight after a scary movie as let’s be honest, we all turn on the cartoons after one. 🙂 This is the movie that not only started it all for Disney but CHANGED ANIMATION. Snow White’s lucky, I have six cats and they do the exact opposite of what her animal friends from the forest do when cleaning the dwarfs cottage.

9: Maleficent

Speaking of scary, this iconic villain is just so intriguing and the first time I watched this film, I swear there was a brief moment that I was rooting for her without realizing it, I think she casted a spell on me through the screen! I have a love-hate relationship with Disney Villains, they are often very funny but they do HORRID things to the protagonists! It’s a difficult situation.

8: Pascal

From Tangled, Pascal is Rapunzel’s little green/red/blue/yellow/anycolournecessary buddy. He is one of the funniest characters in the whole movie, I laugh every time I watch the scene where Rapunzel says Flynn will never find his bag and he replies with ”It’s in that pot isn’t it”. Rapunzel hits him over the head with a frying pan and Flynn wakes with Pascal’s tongue in his EAR!

 

Movie Mondays: Frozen

Warning: This post contains spoilers, do not read if you have not watched the movie yet.

This review is also a personal opinion to a movie.

Frozen, the 21th century’s version of Beauty And The Beast. And while BATB may be more my cup of tea than Frozen, the latter is certainly a classic movie and after a mere two and a half years after its release, the fact that it’s regarded as a classic is a amazing feat.

The soundtrack to this film is a beauty, it made me want to visit Iceland (Where Frozen is set). There’s no mystery as to why Let It Go won an Oscar!

I enjoyed the fact that it showed that true love doesn’t always come from a prince, when Anna is freezing to death, her friend (and person she realizes she loves) Kristoff can save her with true love’s kiss, but then she sees her ex fiancée Hans Of The Southern Isles (Guy who seemed good but turned out to be a jerk) is about to kill her sister Elsa, she leaps in front of her sister, just before she freezes solid, Anna sacrifices herself for her sister.

That said, it’s not the first Disney movie to show girls they don’t need a man to save them, there’s Brave (she refused to be married to a prince) Mulan (She takes her father’s place in the army and ends up saving China) and BATB (Sure, the beast saves her from a pack of wolfs but she does save his life at the end of the movie)

It does however show a extremely accurate scene of a person waking up in the morning, I look identical to Anna in that beginning scene.

All in all, I’d give this movie four stars. Look out for my review on its short film spin off, Frozen Fever.
