3.0 out of 5 stars not up to par for Disney, June 3, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cinderella (Two-Disc Special Edition) (DVD)
For Me, The Disney companies great films were all made during Walt Disneys life, and the 7 finest of them all seemed to define a specific type of love. The first, for me, is Pinnochio, which is about a fathers love. Dumbo is about love between mother & child. Bambi is love of nature, Mother dies, Father takes over, but all of nature helps Bambi come of age, I think this might have been Walt Disneys favorite, its mine). Peter Pan is about how an orphan gets love. Lady & the Tramp is romantic love, between boyfriend & girlfriend. !01 Dalmatians is love of the entire family, family love. Mary Poppins is the love a child feels for a guardian when the childs parents are too busy for it. All in all, those films cover all the bases pretty much. Any baby-boomer worth his salt couldnt help but be carried away by the feelings produced by any of those magic films.
But then there were Disneys other movies, those annoying things where teapots sang, naughty housecats snickered & plotted evil deeds on the nice little mice, elderly fairy mothers came in threes & were not anything like the one we met in Pinnochio, it was all so cute it could make you barf, and it wasnt about love anymore, it was only an excuse to burst in to song about the joy of being like everyone else is, ordinary. Alice in wonderland was a vulgar tasteless joke beside the classic poetry of Lewis Carroll. Cinderrala, Sleeping Beauty- none of these came close to capturing the magic of those other timeless films. I find it difficult to believe even that Walt had much to do with those movies, he was busy with Disneyland & its construction at the time I think. And the anamated films that Disney has come out with since his death, Beauty & Beast, Little Mermaid, whetever, all feel like those films of the second type.
