Watership Down (1978)
I hate how most people think that because its animated its for a child, But in this case its not.
Well I'd say this movie was designed just as good as the book if not better. I enjoy the older style of movies, especially animated ones.
I noticed one good thing in this film was that you could tell each characters personality just like the ones in the book. Such as Dandilion was known as the story-teller and fast one; Which he is also in the movie. And Blackberry was the one who was wise, and was good at finding things. Which he found the boat in the movie. In Most movies the character is changed alittle or different completely. But in watership down they aren't or are rarely changed.
The Music is also beautiful and fits wonderfully with each scene; Mainly the "Bright Eyes Song" Which is a classic even to this day. The lyrics are beyond beautiful.
I also liked the Matureity-like it had to it; Such as the violence and the language. I hate how most people think that because its animated its for a child, But in this case I wouldn't recommend it to a child under the age of 10.
I wouldn't say there is any thing bad about this movie, But I have noticed I CAN'T FIND IT LIKE ANYWHERE. I ordered it from my movie store a year ago and it never came, But I can rent it at my library.
Worth Watching? Yes. Its one of those movies that could make you cry, laugh and say Wow. Its Full Of Action, Drama, Sadness and Smiles. I wouldn't say this is the best movie ever and I for surely wouldn't say it was horrible. But for an 30 Year Old Animated Movie, I'd say its almost prefect.
