this isn't worth the time and money.
Honestly, the songs were ok, but not great or memorable. I was a bit confused by the plot of the King's backstory and then he keeps wishes but releases a wish a year to a special person which was contradicted when there was a passing comment that he granted X amount of wishes last year. The voice acting was good though. I found this middle of the road. But I do also think over time this movie will get way better reviews etc like Tangled does now which is right up there with Frozen.
This is a wonderful movie that I almost didn't see. The idea that so many people say the King is the hero boggles my mind because they are essentially saying that one self appointed leader should have the right to decide who gets not only whose wish is granted but also who can even chase their dreams. That criticism is ridiculous. This movie simply says that even if you don't get your wish granted you should have the right to hope for it, to hold is close and chase your heart's desire . No-one should have the right to stop you for pursuing your dream. Another plus is that this movie plays homage to the animism that made old Disney movies so magical. My son and his 2 friends 8,9 and 9 loved it and so did I.
Not very enjoyable and quite boring.
Not a good movie at all.
My granddaughter (7) and I fell asleep.
Wasn't impressed. Kids weren't impressed, look for better options! Hopefully they get back to making movies like they used to back in the day.
recommending not watching
Okay, like another reviewer pointed out, it really feels like most of the hatred this gets is from people expecting too much out of it. Remember, Chicken Little and Home on the Range still exist. Can you honestly tell me this is worse than those? Also, for the one person who clearly posted the same comment twice accusing this film of being 'woke', there isn't even an anti-prejudice message in it. I swear, that word really has joined the ranks of 'troll' and 'Mary Sue' as this random term that's thrown around so much, no one knows what it means anymore and really will use it as a convenient label for anything they don't like. Look, as a 100 year anniversary celebration, I at least agree this could have been better, but as a deliberately simple fairytale, I think it's fine. The songs, while nothing remarkable from Disney, are still relatively good, and while the main leads are underdeveloped, they're not unlikable. I really don't understand where people are coming from when they call Asha annoying as she clearly has a good heart. Even the 'adorkable' and 'quirky' moments that people get after Disney's newest female leads for are kept to a minimum. So, yes, I can at least agree this movie isn't a masterpiece, but it's not the worst thing Disney's produced either.
The kids made me go, but then were bored and fidgeting half way through, I think the disney magic is gone. I had heard that this was a tribute to 100 years of disney, and I could see where they inserted that, but over top it all was the annoying girl who none of us cared about. Writing was just bad.
Just the worst , period , the girl was soooo annoying, ever 4 seconds a new facial gesture , I mean ,if she put both arm under her chin again , puke , It was like captain Kirk had a baby with attention seeking baby. Oh another thing ,could she have looked more like Megan Marcel, they must have done that when they thought she had a chance . There is the physically challenged girl , replete with crutch , cringe , oh and she full figured , so all the boxs checked . I never thought animation could over act , the worst Disney ever . Oh and finally the one guy in middle, with a booming laugh, every 2 minutes , people in the audience started to point at him and shake their head at him .I smell industry plant . Just baffled .
It’s not Bad music was good a Little Different then some. I liked the music the goat could have been better in it I thought this could have been a tad longer but 2 Maximum hours would have been Enough I was Surprised the odd ones Didn’t like it I didn’t mind it. Try it out and see for Yourself
My wish is that Hollywood would make good movies once again. This movie is abysmal.
Nope, this isn't worth the time and money.
My 7 year old granddaughter who loves movies, got bored and asked to leave.
I'll admit, this film isn't perfect, but I've noticed most of the backlash stems from this being 'too much like the classics'. I remember people making this same complaint about Tangled and Moana, though those complaints weren't anywhere near as high in number. I can't help but feel the reason for this is because these people just saw '100 Year Anniversary' and set their expectations too high. This movie's not trying to be revolutionary. Its goal is to tell a simple traditional fairytale akin to the classics, you know, a nice reminder of why we fell in love with the studio in the first place. And, yeah, it does mostly succeed at this as while it's not fantastic, it is at least charming. The main lead is fairly likable, the songs, while not among the best from Disney are still relatively good, and how nice is it to have a traditional villain that isn't trying to trick us into thinking he's good after so long? Kinda funny how people have been demanding a return to traditional villains for years, and then as soon as we get one, all they do is look for things to complain about. Now, there are things that could have worked a lot better. The story does feel a tad rushed in places, and while I can't say I disliked the comic relief goat, he did get on my nerves a few times throughout the film. Also, as the 100 year celebration, the movie is littered with easter eggs of past films, and while this was done for a relatively good reason, it can feel a tad in-your-face at times. It's kinda like Tiana being a role model in The Princess and the Frog and how a good chunk of her dialog during the first half was her essentially cramming it down your throat. I'm just saying, a little subtlety can go a long way. Nevertheless, the film isn't amazing, and maybe it should have been, but on the whole, it's good. That said, if you'd rather wait for the Disney Plus release to give it a shot, I don
Wish I chose another movie.Y
