Please tell me you have kids !!!
Watched more The Rain and Westworld, all good. Looking forward to Cargo coming to Netflix on Friday. Been with Netflix quite a while but its really improved the last few months for me personally, a lot to watch on it
Please tell me you have kids !!!
Why? It isn't as if this place is dedicated to adult pursuits. The Disney films are cultural icons referenced in so many places, with The Little Mermaid being particularly popular in that regard.
If its part of your nostalgia or related to it like recent films, then why should it be a problem? Sure Little Mermaid is aimed more at girls but you speak to a lot of adult girls these days and a good chunk of them will say they actually hate the film for reasons like Arial getting what she wants in the end, selling her soul basically for legs and a man, etc. I enjoy the film nowadays because the songs are still good and catchy, and parts like when she can't talk and only her face shows her amazement and curiosity through emotion as she discovers this whole new world. The thing about these films is you can watch them as kids and be entertained, but when you rewatch them, you can watch it through adult eyes like respect the level of handdrawn animation (Which is something we don't see all that much anymore, thank you fully CG movies.) and understand some of the themes you didnt get as a kid but perfectly understand as an adult. Much like rewatching old Looney Tunes/Tom and Jerry cartoons, you laughed at the violence as a kid, rewatch as an adult and you'll discover a fair bit of hidden adult humor. In-fact, I've seen a fair few parents consider old Looney Tunes/Tom and Jerry to be much too violent for today's kids and sure enough they've been censored enough over the years (Blackface bits, the voice actress for the black housemaid, etc.)psj3809 wrote: ↑Tue May 15, 2018 1:19 pmFeel free to buy the latest Barbie game then and let me know if its any good !
Nah i'm disagreeing here ! Full grown adults watching Little Mermaid without kids ? Nah ! So many other films/tv shows to watch !
Granted perhaps i'm wrong and my circle of friends must be different but i would never watch Moana by myself at all. I'm happy as anything that Disney have made a massive massive comeback with a lot of great films but i'm not the target audience for the likes of Moana or Little Mermaid. Never had one work colleague in all these years saying 'you know what film you should watch - Little Mermaid, its superb....'
Yeah, I think The Princess and the Frog doesn't really get talked about as much as the rest of the Disney films especially as Tangled was the film that followed it. I think it's definitely worth a watch.Antiriad2097 wrote: ↑Tue May 15, 2018 7:13 amWeirdly, I don't think I've seen The Princess in the Frog beyond a few snippets, though I know my grandkids have it (and I have it for them at ours). It just isn't one they ask for.
Watched Prime Suspect 1973 at the weekend. Pretty good reboot prequel, I hope there's more. Casting was great, it's surprising how much like a young Helen Mirren the new actor for Tennison is, they've tried for consistency there at least.
Yes I do but I would most likely watch them at some point anyway as I like to watch animations. A lot of animations include adult references but can be enjoyable anyway, just because it's a cartoon doesn't mean it cannot be watched by adults, it's just another form of film/TV. Shrek 2 I think is a brilliant film as it's really funny and also has a lot of jokes/references for adults.
