Tangled 3D

If you’re old enough to remember VHS you definitely had a few of these on your shelf! Disney’s Masterpiece Collection was not only my introduction to their past, it also coincided with their oft-romanticized Renaissance.

Besides the “Lion King,” no Disney movies are more memorable than those containing the beloved Disney Princesses. I once believed myself to be Aladdin; and I’ve seemingly grown into John Smith. However, my childhood in the Magic Kingdom not only made me a moral man, it also started me on a journey to find a Princess of my own.

Adolescence crept in and ‘distracted’ me. Undergrad arrived and my quest became more perilous. Interestingly enough these were the same years in which Disney began their own love affair with Pixar; years in which romantic tales were replaced with 3D toys and talking fish.

Then came my graduation, and subsequently so did the return of the singing princess. Walt Disney Animation Studios had a hit last year with “The Princess and the Frog.” This year they have an Oscar-worthy slice of cinema in “Tangled (3D).”

The excellence of Despicable Me and Megamind seem trite when compared to Disney’s Tangled. The depth, detail, and texture present in their 3D are so impressive that the only thing putting a pause on its hilarity is the reactionary gasps to its imagery. Additionally equipped with brilliant lighting, a great score, and incredible casting it will be heresy to see another animated movie win gold in February!

This Rapunzel-reprise is much more than just a pretty picture however. It contains all the beloved elements of a classic Disney drama: (I.E.) royal bloodline; single-parent home; troublesome childhood; an unexpected meeting of strangers; an adventurous courtship; and an ending that’s “happily ever-after.” It’s a boy-meets-girl fairy-tale. It’s the 50th film in the “Disney Animation Canon,” and it’s a gem of a jubilee!

Seeing Disney return to its romantic roots reminds me of my own. You see I found the path again recently, and this road is filled with many-a-man looking for an Ariel. However, Mulan is my princess and this is my life at the movies.

    This movie looks really good. Sadly i wont see it in theatre and then the cinema/3D essence will be gone. I have to say my fav Disney movie remains Fantasia .

    Tangled is easily one of my favourites. I agree that it encompasses all of the elements that make a true fairytale. I felt that the slap stick humor and traditional Disney storytelling was refreshing, considering it’s been a while since they’ve released an animated film as such.

      I agree. It really is a film filled with the magic fresh from the magic kingdom.
