Tangled


tangled movie art
Originally uploaded by K Brower
Beth and I saw Tangled yesterday, and we both enjoyed it a lot. One of the goals of this movie was always to produce CGI animation with the life and heart of classic Disney animation, and it succeeded admirably. The movie is gorgeous. A more recent goal was also to combine a "princess" movie with a rousing adventure, and it pulled that off too. It didn't do so well at being a musical (another goal that came late in production) -- the songs are all purely functional (except for the music hall number "I've Got a Dream", which is lots of fun). But the story is very tight, and Mother Gothel is a great villain, and there is even a flag! I highly recommend it...

I have not seen it yet, but from the adverts it does appeared very hackneyed. It can be very good but still quite formulaic in the way only Disney films can be.

Of course, it could just be an episodic-mood-thing...

Re: Trite
The story isn't groundbreaking (it's not Mememto or Being John Malkovitch), but it doesn't really follow a Disney formula either (which may be why the songs seem tacked on). The relationship between Rapunzel and Flynn does fit a standard romantic comedy trope -- they start out trying to use each other, but then they fall in love -- but it's done well.

SPOILERS: One regrettable bit of Disney formula it does indulge in is that the villain falls to her death. I think that was a poor choice, but I guess the thought was "We have a tower, someone better be falling from it"
