  3. The new Disney movie sounds really good! It sounds like they don't have the female lead chasing after a prince, which I like.

    A live action Winnie the Pooh? Will it be like how they made Paddington?

    1. I just hope it won't be too much like LILO AND STITCH. I sometimes wish they would be more diverse in choosing the cultures for their animated movies. Did they have something set in India, Russia? I don't think so....

    2. Sadly, I think they go with what they think is going to draw in the most money. They did Princess and the Frog with the first African American princess and the movie was a flop. I recall hearing that they weren't going to do anymore princess films after that because they thought little girls just weren't into princesses anymore. But then Tangled proved to be a smashing success, and of course look where Frozen went. Sadly, we still live in a very race driven world, and Disney is always going to go with the race they think will bring in the most $. Walt Disney's family members even admitted that the man himself was a racist.

    3. same with a not so pretty princess in BRAVE... such a stunning movie, but not one of their biggest hits :( even though it is ten times better than FROZEN. TANGLED wouldn't be a hit if she had that ugly short hair in the whole movie and not just in the end :)

      Delete
    4. So true. Though I would have watched Tangled with the ugly short hair, only because I love the voice over work Mandy Moore does.

    5. yep, and her prince and his horse were a delight to watch too :) Was it Krasinski or Zachary Levi lending him the voice?

      Delete
    6. And the iguana was a hoot! I think it was Levi who did the prince.

      Delete
    7. yes, the brave iguana, although I didn't understand where did they find it in the middle of the European forest :)

  8. I still can't get over Colin Firth's character in Before I Go To Sleep. I think that role will be hard to erase from my memory and it shattered my Mr.Darcy-like image of him in Bridget Jones. I think I need to see him in a goody goody role again. :)

    The Lobster sound strange, but intriguing.
