Okay I'm a week late but here it is, finally!
If I can be honest this is a movie I'm not really that excited about watching again. Any time I watched it in the past I wasn't that interested but now that I've been watching もっと見る ディズニー again lately maybe I'll enjoy it!
Tonight's rewatch: The Princess and the Frog
Last time watched: 2013
How much did I like this movie as a kid?
When I first watched this movie I was 16 years old and kinda going through a "I hate Disney" faze. It wasn't that I hated all the ディズニー 映画 since during that time I was still watching the classics like Hunchback of Notre Dame and Dinosaur (yes, I like to think it's a classic even with the plot being a bit of a Land Before Time ripoff), it was mostly the newer 映画 I didn't like. After ホーム on the Range, Chicken Little, and The Wild, I was beginning to lose interest in whatever ディズニー put out that was animated, unless it was Pixar. Meet the Robinsons was probably the only movie that was "recently" released that I loved and Bolt was only a little enjoyable at the time. Because of this (and commercials spoiling the ending when the dvd came out) I almost didn't watch Princess and the Frog at all until my sister, who just had a baby and would only watch カートゥーン when around her, invited me to watch the movie with her. The movie had just come out on dvd and I wasn't too interested but I figured, "what the heck?" As I had predicted, however, the movie didn't keep my interest. I think the only parts of the movie I really liked were Almost There and フレンズ on the Other Side. I watched it again a few years later and I don't remember if I even liked it then either which is not a good sign. I'm going to try giving this movie another chance since it has been 6 years maybe my opinion will change.
How much of this movie have I forgotten:
I've 発言しました a few times that James was one of my お気に入り ディズニー dads and this movie reminds me why. We see him only for a few 分 but his scenes with his family really stick によって me and I 愛 all his lines. And I loved that even after coming ホーム so tired and sore he never took it out on his family, he kept a smile on his face and made sure his wife and daughter knew how much he loved them.
I'm also remembering why I 愛 シャルロット, シャーロット so much. She's a spoiled princess, yeah, but that doesn't stop her from being such a great friend to Tiana. ディズニー could have had シャルロット, シャーロット turn out to be a クイーン B-Word and look down on Tiana but she plays with Tiana when they're kids, she hires Tiana to help cater Big Daddy's party, lent Tiana a nice dress when her's was ruined, and when Tiana and Naveen showed how much they loved each other シャルロット, シャーロット put aside her dream to try helping Tiana be with the man/frog she loved. シャルロット, シャーロット may have wanted to be a princess, but I like to see her as the Fairy Godmother of the movie. And I 愛 her sass.
This isn't something I've really forgotten but some things I'm noticing in Facilier's lair every time I watch this movie, like his 壁紙 表示中 skull and crossbones when his shadow is on it, when his face becomes a skeleton it's the skull and crossbones on his hat, and him hinting he's turning Naveen into a frog ("hop from place to place", one of the tarot cards 表示中 Naveen on a lilypad made of money, him seeing green in Naveen's future)
And I totally forgot how much of a jerk Naveen was at first. I know the Beast and Flynn/Eugene were jerks at first too but they at least didn't treat women the same way Naveen did または looked down on someone for being a waitress. He even blamed Tiana for "tricking him" into believing that she was a princess and blamed her for the キッス not working. He's もっと見る likeable later at least. I still don't like him as much as Flynn/Eugene though, but that's mostly for biased reasons.
The frog hunters were definitely forgettable too. The only time I ever remember them is when I'm actually watching the movie because we only see them for a few 分 and they're never seen または talked about again.
I 愛 Mama Odie so much too! Just as much as I 愛 the Good 妖精 from Sleeping Beauty.
線, レイ and Louis were funny sidekicks but I still don't really like them as much as Mushu and Cri-kee または Timon and Pumbaa. Ray's relationship with Evangeline has to be one of my お気に入り ディズニー relationships. I actually like 線, レイ and Evangeline もっと見る than Tiana and Naveen together. Even at 16 I was so sad that 線, レイ died and I still felt sad when he died. At least he and Evangeline were finally really together in the end.
Tiana is one of the fictional characters I look up to on how working hard will help your dreams come true and she's one of the characters who got me so interested in cooking. I've seen a lot of people say Tiana was too harsh on other people and I don't really see it. The only times I saw her be harsh was when someone was disrespecting her または when Naveen was being lazy. As someone who had to work two very exhausting jobs like Tiana did, I can understand her frustration when Naveen just called her a waitress and a stick in the mud. The only real complaint I had about her is she got angry at Naveen for doing what he 発言しました he would do (he technically didn't tell her his feelings yet and he hadn't made it clear to him yet that she had any feelings for him) and she didn't even realize that "Naveen" was human and yet she was still a frog. What she 発言しました to 線, レイ was definitely going too far too. Tiana was 12 on my 一覧 but I'm going to bump her up to 10
I have to say I had fun! I wish the froghunters scene was left out または had an actual point and I wish Tiana didn't get mad at Naveen for doing what he 発言しました he would do (or at least Lawrence doing it) and vice versa but I wasn't bored while watching this movie and like I said, I had fun! Princess and the Frog was 9 on my 一覧 but for now I'm going to leave it there.
How much has my opinion changed?
My opinion for this movie since the first time I watched it has changed a lot in a good way. Ten years really makes a difference I guess :P
Would I watch it again?
Since I'm behind on a few 映画 I will be doing Maleficent today as well and Pocahontas II and シンデレラ will be done tomorrow :)
