Enchanted

This movie isn’t in Empire’s Top 500 as I think the movie was released a few months after the list was made. Its just such an amazing movie, its definitely in my top 10 favourite films ever. I almost know all the words, very close! Just a few more watches and I’ll know them! Its such a magical film that leaves me feeling so happy! For those who don’t know, this movie is about Giselle [a soon-to-be (Disney) princess] movie from 2D Disney world to real world New York. It kind of makes fun out of the classic Disney movies with the princesses [which I still love at 19] but at the same time is almost like a tribute to them. It points out the flaws in them but also highlights what’s so awesome about them.

  • It begins with the ultimate happy-film actress, Julie Andrews as our narrator. She tells us the classic plot of a wicked step-mother who wants to keep her crown from her step-son. Its all in fabulous 2D in all its beautiful 2D glory! I don’t mind the 3D that every movie is shown in now-a-days but there’s just something magical about Disney 2D, it makes me feel like a little kid again.
  • Giselle is such a sweetheart! A lovable, ignorant soon-to-be princess. Its all about finding her one true love and true love’s kiss for her. She breaks into instant song about True Love’s Kiss with the help of the classic woodland creatures. There is one line of the lyrics to the song that already take a little stab at the Disney movies; “For lips are the only things that touch.” Aha. Ahahahahahahahahaha.
  • “Oh, it’s you.” “Yes, it’s me. And you are?” “Giselle.” “Oh, Giselle! We shall be married in the morning!” My favourite line of this entire movie. It just sums up the ‘romance’ in Disney movies perfectly.
  • The Evil Queen looks just like Susan Sarandon! The animation of them looking like their actors is spot on.
  • Our non-Disney leading man is a lawyer which is just genius! Disney is all about love, marriage and happily ever after! There’s never divorce! Its just so perfect!

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    This is the first time I’ve seen this movie the whole way through. And I have only one word; huh. Its awesome and all but… y’know… huh…

  • I know they did it all the time back then but the opening credits being so long was just boring.
  • I love that the story is told like those investigation shows.
  • Richard O’Brien’s voice as Riff Raff is funny, me and mum were chuckling away. Also, he’s the dude from Crystal Maze, one of the many shows I grew up watching!
  • Time Warp is such a classic song, everyone knows the dance and it’s a party-favourite!
  • Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter is oddly attractive. And wears the best heels ever!
  • I loved that the 4th wall was broken down for this movie as we had some of the characters look at the screen in acknowledgement to the audience.
  • Its Meat Loaf!
  • The silhouette scenes with Frank-N-Furter with the couple [individually] was quite funny and very well shot, I must say.
  • You can totally tell this was on stage before film because the acting is so wonderfully over the top.
  • Magenta and Columbia’s scene where they’re watching Susan Sarandon Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me made me think of me and my best friend in England Sarah, she would be Columbia and me Magenta. Aw, that would have been fun to do.
  • I know the review is short and crap but honestly, I did love it but just couldn’t find the words to describe the movie!
