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....'
And then there's the stuff from childhood that never gets revived. Just yesterday I received Around The World with Willy Fog on DVD and I guarantee you no TV channel has or will air that. Netflix or Amazon Prime maybe, but being obscure and probably nearly 30 years since I saw it, I doubt it. Is it wrong I can't get that "80 Days Around The World" song out my head? Course not.
And of course if you think that is bad, you clearly have never heard of a Brony.
