Mulan - Heart-Warming Movie

Mulan is a movie I will never forget, and I mean it.
After several years, I found out it had a special edition DVD in a commercial.
This movie is heart-warming, magical, and fun .
Mulan, to me, is just as great a classic as Disney's Bambi or Cinderella is.
The sum total of Mulan is greater than its parts , which are oustanding:
story, music, artwork, voices, characterization, etc...
Mulan, the character, is animated by Mark Henn, one of the main animators behind the beautiful and timeless Disney heroines of the 90's.
Like Jasmine, Mulan's movements are feminine, lively, and nuanced, and show how much love he put into his work.
Her facial expressions are subtle but clear, showing both her intelligence and her girlish immaturity.

Watch Jackie Chan singing Wong Fei Hung (Mulan Song):

Tarzan - Disney's Great Film

Tarzan is a brilliant film.

Disney have produced some of the most famous and loved films in history, so you expect a quality film.

Tarzan is right up there, I think it is the best Disney film since Lion King, with beautiful animation, a catching soundtrack, brilliant voice acting and a nice story.

In other Disney movies the characters themselves have sang the musical parts, but here it is left to Phil Collins in the background, which works excellently.

The soundtrack fits perfectly with what is happening on screen, and tunes you are bound to be singing to yourself long after the film has finished.

Watch the making of character "Tarzan" by Glen Keane :

New by Sony - 'Surf's Up'

It seems like inflation of penguins those animation days...

After last year's "Happy Feet", in which Emperor penguins sang for their spouses and one lonely little guy danced to his own beat , this film is about surfing world , dude...

But "Surf's Up" is different. It distinguishes itself by putting the animated characters in the documentary format.

Its really quite strange to watch this film - but my kids loved it.

The Simpsons - The Movie 2007 - Disappointment

In 1987 ,when The Simpsons series began, as a short on The Tracey Ullman Show, Bart quickly became the star.

Then Homer turned into everyone’s favourite,we love to watch him hit himself with a hammer or bounce on his head and shout “D’oh!”.

In my opinion the central problem with The Simpsons Movie is that it is too much like the television series – nothing fresh or innovative to admire.

In fact, there are some scenes we’ve seen before, as when Homer does an Evel Knievel-style leap on a motorbike and slowly falls through space.

I think it could have beeen much better movie if some of the old writers (from the good years on TV) would have write for the movie.

The bottom line - Disappointment !!

Tex Avery - Father of Daffy Duck And Bugs Bunny

Tex Avery was the true genius behind the cartoon boom at Warner Bros.
and MGM in the 1940s as well: he abandoned Disney's ultra-realistic approach took the art of animation to an entirely new level.

While Disney's cartoons strived to create painstakingly lifelike imitations of reality, Avery's cartoons did things that could only be done in cartoons.
