A Timeless Classic
Despite its historical inaccuracies, Disney's Pocahontas was a wonderfully vibrant tale of love and courage. The animation was breathtaking, to say the least. One thing that I focus on when seeing a movie for the first time is the music - does the music go well with the theme? To answer this question, all the songs were brilliantly conveyed through their lyrics and melodies. Up there with the other Disney classics, Pocahontas deserves to be cherished by generations to come.It's amazing how they pick the perfect people to voice the characters; Mel Gibson (along with the others) did a great job. As one of the few movies that will make you cry, it will leave you with a warmth in your heart and a tear in your eye.
I loved this movie, although I have to ask the perhaps obvious question: if the characters were French, why did everyone have a British accent? However, I did appreciate the tomboy-ish twist Drew Barrymoore gave to the ever-so-sweet yet laxadasical Cinderella. The plot line was intricate, involving the emotions to which we who live in the 21st century can relate.Romance, rebellion, loyalty, and sibling rivalry all play a part in Ever After. There are also very quotable lines (I would rather die a thousand deaths than...)that exemplify the fiery temper of Cinderella. All in all, I say to the writers, directors, and actors-actresses, good job!
I admit some of the quips from the commentators were funny, but I have to disagree with a lot of what is said. For instance, when they ruthlessly make fun of Meatloaf's "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)", they say it doesn't make sense - what won't he do? Uh, well, if you listen to the end of the song you'd find out. Sure, some of the songs deserved to be on the list, but many were great songs, and did NOT deserve the trash talk so given by the comedians. It is also inaccurate to call this show "50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs...Ever", because after it was released at least a dozen more "awesomely bad songs" appeared on the radio.
