I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Mine was quite pleasant and I'll drop you some more info on it shortly. For now we should give note to a movie I saw on Thanksgiving day. Walt Disney's Enchanted.
There are so many wonderful things about this movie. The most important in my opinion is the return of the hand drawn animation to a feature film. There has been so much computer animation out there, some good, and some really bad. But this movie brings us back to the roots, and does it well. Another thing Disney movies seem to be lacking is music. Alan Menken, one of the musical geniuses behind The Little Mermaid and a host of other Disney classics returns with pizzaz! As I left the theater humming the tunes, and still have them stuck in my head.
Of course there is comedy and Amy Adams does a great job as Princess Giselle.
I have always been somewhat of a romantic and this is one of those fairy tale movies that re-established that hope for magic in me.
Below is a clip of one of the movies musical numbers. It like a live action version of "Be Our Guest" and "Under the Sea"
