My posts of late have been on the more serious sides of things. So I'm going to write about something not so serious today. I don't normally have time for movies and most are not worth paying to see anyhow. But a few days ago friends took me to the movie theatre for a fun time and we watched Disney's new movie, Tangled. And I have to say that Disney actually did a very good job. The story is a version of the fairy tale Rapunzel.
The characters are very likeable and the music is very good! Of course being a musician that would be the first thing I noticed. :) The story revolves around four characters:
Flynn, the reluctant hero;
Rapunzel, the naive damsel in distress;
Maximus the intelligent horse;
and Rapunzel's "mother" Gothel.
The issues of selfishness and selflessness are key in this tale but they are not "dummied" down for audiences. There is a lot of humor but also a lot of charm and several moments are surprisingly touching. If you have the time I would recommend going to see Tangled. Bring a friend or loved one along and stay with the normal movie experience. The 3D, from what I have heard, is not worth the extra bucks. Tangled is visually stunning and beautiful just as it is.
