Another Disney and Pixar movie for the books. Today we have Tangled the story that revolves around Rapunzel. The story of Rapunzel I'm sure mostly everyone has at least heard of. A young woman stuck in a tower that never cuts her hair and uses it to pull up people, especially the prince. That's about all I know, from what the real story is from the Brother's Grimm I do not know. But the one from Disney I liked very much.
There is a magical flower that the Queen uses to heal herself before giving birth to Rapunzel. There's an old hag that had been using this flower, so when she found out the the baby had the same power (actually it's her hair) she kidnaps her, locks her in a tower, and raises her as a daughter. Rapunzel grows up knowing that her hair is magical, but she wants to venture out. Flynn Rider, a crook, climbs into her tower one day to hide and she convinces him to take her to the village. This is the majority of the story, the two of them travelling to the village with other bad men chasing them as well as the old Hag who want's Rapunzel's hair all to herself. Did I mention that you have to sing to make the hair work? Classic Disney.
Overall, this movie was a lot of fun. And I found myself laughing at all the corny jokes that were happening as well as dancing along to the songs (if I knew the words I'd definitely had been singing along too). The story itself I liked, how all she wanted was to watch the lanterns fly on her birthday from somewhere other than her tiny window in the tower. The fact that those lanterns were in honor of the missing princess' birthday was great. Did lanterns like that exist in those times? I mean, I only recently just started seeing them on the 4th of July. Either way, it was magical.
I'm going to give this movie a Loved It. I can't believe I haven't seen it before this post. It was really good, though I still like Frozen more. Mandy Moore is great, I always love her voice and her acting (I guess I should say voice over). I love the chameleon and the horse, though it's pretty cliche how they are portrayed in the movie, mostly like all the other animals in all the other Disney movies. I don't care though.It's a great family movie and I recommend it and will be watching it again soon.
