And I didn't watch such of silly movie, of course ! I'm not a stupid man !
BUT, there's a week ago, the daughter of my sister (9 years old), forgot that DVD in my home. I thought : "Let's see this stupidity, just to laugh at the most ridiculous Disney's movie !"
I watched it. And I cryed. This is the best Disney's movie, and maybe the best movie, I've ever watched !
How can you criticize it ? Have you lost your children soul ?!!
Of course, just after watched it, I thought : "Well, that's good. Better than I thought. But that's all".
But the next day, the song of the old "mother witch" remains in my mind ! I decided to watch it again, and again. Now, I've seen this movie about 20 times in one week. That's incredible, I think I'm a fan !!!!
For me, in general, the worst part of a Disney movie, was the songs. I've always hated them. For the first time, I found the songs were the best part of this movie ! I listened to every songs of this movie, and I think, they are all good, and even, great ! Also the music ! It's an Mozart's opera !
Graphics are good, but the editing is better ! The first encounter between Pocahontas and Smith at the falls is a pure master-piece ! And the movie's references are plenty ! The "3-voices song" of "savages", reminds me the "rumbles" of "West Side Story", and the final "goodbye" reminds me the final of Spielberg's "E.T.".
I don't know if this movie was done "for children", but I know I cry every time I watch it !
Thanks for Mike Gabriel, Eric Goldberg, Alan Menken, Stephen Schwartz, and the Disney Company to have kept their "children soul". I was wrong and they were right. And I'm happy of that.
Well, I quit you now, I need to watch this movie again... Goodbye ! :-))
10/10 !!!!!! of course !
