Thanks to my secret santa, I got the dvds of The Rescuers/The Rescuers Down Under. I do not have a dvd player at this time but my granddaughter and I watched both movies last night on my laptop and she and I found them both delightful.
Also, granddaughter brought a few of her Disney books for me to read to her that she got for Christmas and I realised I had seen the Tarzan, Robin Hood, The Sword In The Stone and Chicken Little movies done by Disney. So I am marking them done as well.
Awhile back, I discovered that the full length movie The Lion King had been recorded on Youtube. My granddaughter enjoyed it immensely. This past weekend, we watched Sleeping Beauty which I probably haven’t seen since I was her age. It was very good and just perfect for little princesses. Now, my granddaughter is convinced she has to be a Disney princess every year for Halloween.
I had this one recorded on our DVR for a few weeks. I wanted to watch it with my granddaughter but as soon as she saw what movie it was, she told me she didn’t like it. I finally watched it by myself last night. It wasn’t as good as most Disney fare but it wasn’t too bad, either. I’m glad I didn’t ever have to pay to see it.
I watched this with my granddaughtet this last weekend. Unfortunately, it was on network television and it seemed there were more commercials then actual movie. Otherwise, it was a sweet story even if a little hokey. My granddaughter kept pretending she was a frog and hopping around during the music numbers which Disney animated movies are noted for. There was some vague similarities between this movie and another nondisney animated movie called All Dogs Go To Heaven. Of course, that could have been my imagination.
Another favoite although my hubby believes it is slanted toward anti-hunting.
I’m not even sure why i haven’t made an entry about Pinochio until now. I’ve seen it several times while growing up and even had it on VHS until it wore out. It was one of my childhood favoites and I often think of naming one of my cats Figuro although I never have.
edit. I just noticed I made asecond entry about Pinocchio. And I’ve only made a dozen entries on this goal so I must be getting senile. LOL
My grandaughter and I watched it together on Sunday. It brought back memories of when I first saw it with her mother at the movies when it first came out.
I didn’t realise when I bought the DVD several months ago that it was a Disney movie. I don’t even remember it when it was released. I suppose that is because it came out just after all the Jurassic Park movies. It is worth watching.
I bought this movie on DVD for my granddaughter for her birthday and I believe I’ve watched it more then she. I always thought of it as a very cut and dried tale about a girl living in a tower with a witch and discovered by a traveling prince who gets the girl to let him in the tower. The witch finds out, cuts the girl’s hair, sets a trap for him by letting him in the tower with the hair and…...and it was never really clear how the story ended. Personally, I love the Disney version. The story is enchanting and the songs are sensational. Until I saw this movie, The Little Mermaid had alway been my favorite Disney film.
This was probably the first movie I was allowed to see on my own at the matinee without parental supervision. I don’t count that my brother came along, too. I was either 7 or 8. I’m not quite sure when Jungle Book came out, only that my mom didn’t come with us and my best friend Kathy and I didn’t have to sit with my brother.
I do remember I enjoyed it very much.
