Day 21 – An overrated movie

Ugh. I really struggle with labeling overrated and underrated movies!

Frozen (2013)

This is the only Disney movie I can think of where I truly believe it is overrated. It’s a decent movie, but not incredibly remarkable.

Day 20 – Favorite sequel

Toy Story 3 (2010)

I liked Toy Story 2 (1999), don’t get me wrong. But Toy Story 3 absolutely blew it out of the water. It came out at the perfect time – 15 years after the original movie was released. And, at the time, we all thought it was the end of the story.

I believe Toy Story 3 will remain my favorite, but I’m looking forward to seeing Toy Story 4 when it’s released this summer. From what I’ve heard, if you go see it, bring the tissues.

Day 19 – Your least favorite Pixar movie

Cars 2 (2011)

As much as I wanted to like this one, since I liked Cars (2006) so much, this one was just a messy, muddled story. Sometimes, the international spin just doesn’t work!

I still haven’t seen Cars 3 (2017), but I’ve heard it was better than this one. I like the characters and the concept overall. In reality, they could have kept it as a standalone movie.

Day 18 – Your favorite Pixar film

Toy Story (1995)

Image result for toy story 1995

I fell in love with Toy Story when it was first announced. I loved the trailer. I don’t remember going to see it in theaters, although I was 8 years old when it was released in November 1995.

However, we had it on VHS. I watched it so many times, I lost count. My parents still have the VHS copy today. I’m surprised I didn’t wear it out!

There are so many different characters in this movie. I liked Woody, thought Mr. Potato Head and Ham were funny, and Rex was silly. Buzz Lightyear appeared to be the enemy invader at first, but he turns out to be a decent toy. There are several lessons to be learned in this movie, too – Friendship, caring, kindness, respect, and more.

Dumbo (1941)

I’ve only seen Dumbo once or twice in my entire life. I have trouble with movies about animals in peril or trouble, I always have.

It’s so hard to pick a favorite!

I love this movie. The classical music alone, mostly performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra, is top-notch. My favorite segments are The Sorceror’s Apprentice and Night on Bald Mountain. I clearly remember both of them frightening me at first, but as I gained a greater appreciation for both classical music and animation, I fell in love.

I was in orchestra for eight years, from fifth grade through high school. We learned to play several pieces featured in the movie. To this day, I think my favorite is Night on Bald Mountain.

Day 15 – The first movie you saw

At home – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

In the theater – This is more of a challenge. I want to say Pocahontas (1995), but it may have actually been Hercules (1997).

Day 14 – Your favorite kiss

Ellie and Carl Fredericksen, Up (2009)

Image result for carl and ellie wedding

I’m already tearing up. The first 10 minutes of Up evoke so many emotions!

It’s clear Ellie and Carl were meant for each other. I smile when I think of their wedding day and this kiss, because it’s a sweet, wonderful moment of happiness and pure joy.

I won’t spoil it for those who may not have seen it, but you’ve been warned. Have tissues ready.

Day 13 – Your least favorite song

“Let It Go” from Frozen (2013)

Image result for let it go from frozen

It was symbolic in the movie. I downloaded it on my phone. Now, I can’t stand to listen to it. Idina Menzel is a good singer, don’t get me wrong. But give me a song from Wicked any day. Not this.

Day 12 – Your favorite villain song

“The Mob Song” from Beauty and The Beast (1991)

Image result for disney villain song gaston

This song. It struck absolute fear in me. Every scene associated with this song is hate-filled, angered, and frightening. But, at the same time, it’s one of the most memorable ones I know.
