I'm still super busy these days, but I want to keep up with this as much as I can, so I'm doing a quick post. Josh and I went to the movies Sunday to see Transformers: Dark of the Moon. We don't like paying $7.50 a person, so we rarely bother going out to the theater, but we need some time out of the house alone. It was a great movie (I love Transformers and Micheal Bay's theatrics). When we went into the lobby I saw an advertisement for my favorite movie of all time. In September of this year Disney is bringing The Lion King back to theaters!!! Its going to be in 3D (which I'm not a big fan of), but seeing it on the big screen is what I'm so excited about. The Lion King originally came out in 1994, when I was 8 years old. I grew up poor, and we never went to the movies, so I never got to experience it in theaters. It has always been my favorite movie and I love getting the opportunity to see it on the big screen.
I have always been a fan of Disney movies and most of my favorites are Disney films. Below are some of images/gifs of a few of my favorites. Do ya'll like Disney movies? What are your favorites?
Bambi is a great movie, makes me cry every time!! My mom actually nicknamed me Bambi when I was little because she said my eyes were as big as my head..LOL *Quick note, this is a GIF, but you gotta click it to see it move!*
The Little Mermaid is my favorite in terms of music (aside from Fantasia 2000). The songs are amazing, and Ariel's love for singing inspired me to sing. I'm not any good, but I do love karaoke!
Who doesn't love Finding Nemo? This is one of my favorite scenes.
Pocahontas is the movie that cultivated my love of animals and nature. I definitely identify with Pocahontas and her view of the world around her. Every part of nature is alive and connected to each other. Plus, this is another one that has amazing music.
Ratatouille was just awesome! Remy is one of my favorite characters.
I loved the re-imagining of Tarzan in Disney's version. The way Tarzan moves through the forest, and the fluidity of the whole movie was awesome. And the "pots and pans" scene with the gorillas is worthy of a million awards!
Lastly, but definitely not least is Wall-e. This one really hit home with the way humans abuse our only home. I wish it would have spurred more action on our part to clean up the planet, but we are slowly realizing what needs to be done. Plus he is so darn cute!
