Movie Reviews:

  • tiailds: After the third attempt to watch this film, I finally got through the first 15 minutes and am glad I did. There always seemed to be something to stop me from getting too far in. So, what did I think?

    “Is it entertaining?” Yes. For the most part, the songs were enjoyable and the animation was fine. The pacing could be improved somewhat, mostly by eliminated 2-3 songs. 2 out of 3

    “Is it interesting?” Yes. The character backgrounds and the story development were easily above the average kids movie. The plot was a tad predictable and the moral seemed to meander some. 2 out of 3

    “Is it memorable?” Somewhat. The most unique thing were the character types. While the animation was fine, some of the human facial expressions were just off enough to be slightly creepy. I am glad most of the movie had some of the main characters as animals. 1.5 out of 3

    Start with 1.
    1+2+2+1.5=6.5
    I will round up for the overall enjoyment of the time spent.
    7 stars.

  • Gimly: I have some questions, I have some comments, both of which may come across as moderately hostile, but I still enjoyed _The Princess and the Frog_. I’m not too sure why though. I won’t be coming back for the soundtrack, which is generally one of the biggest appeals of these Princess deals, and certain things are so *yawn* Disney that you can call them before you press play, but at least it’s a little different.

    _Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._

  • r96sk: Solid.

    ‘The Princess and the Frog’ makes for a good time. It’s nothing incredibly different from the studio’s other animated princess films, but still produces what you’d want from a film of this type.

    Anika Noni Rose works well in the lead role as Tiana, while it’s pleasant to hear John Goodman as Big Daddy; albeit not as a major character. Keith David (Shadow Man) and Oprah Winfrey (Eudora), meanwhile, are welcomed cast members.

    The music is rather forgettable, though the (traditional) animation is nice. There’s a few moments where it drags its heels slightly, but the pacing is mostly fine. It all comes down to whether you enjoy princess stories, given how predictable and formulaic they are. I’m nonplussed about them, to be honest.

    Mid-range Disney, for me.
