Lloy Alexander BOOKS; that movie was all 5 of them stuck together.

"Mulan" and "Hunchback" I will go to bat for because I've seen them both recently; "Mulan" I like for illogical reasons (Xtina sang the big song from it and Ming-Na and Eddie Murphy are in it) and logical reasons (it's a bog-standard plot but reasonably well-executed and I cared about what happened as the movie went on) while "Hunchback I saw by accident after years of avoiding it because I was convinced it was a saccharine whitewash of the original story and in seeing the movie I was shocked and amazed that it actually was on the dark side in terms of what you expect from a Disney movie.

lilo and stitch rules but mulan is the last disney i have sentimental childhood attachment to, despite being kiddy stuff somehow it remained a birthday sleepover staple well into middle school

jeez that Pinocchio re-release I was talking about was 1984, must've been one of the first movies I ever saw in the theater.

it actually was the first movie i saw; my dad wrote in his journal about it the night after he took me. he said i spent the next whole day telling lies, pressing on the end of my nose, and giggling.

ok I'm pretty sure I saw Bambi in '82 but was too young to be traumatized by the mom death or know wtf was going on or give a shit about Bambi but I liked Thumper.

Thumper is the only rabbit I know who transferred his lust from his dick to his foot.

I'll write it again:

While you're all in hell for worshipping obese animals and listening to trippy Mad Hatter tales, I'll be in heaven sipping margaritas thanks to THE RESCUERS DOWN UNDER.

If you guys haven't seen HUNCHBACK (and I doubt most of you have), you NEED to watch the creepiest song sequence in any animated feature or possibly any movie ever. Evil priest sings about how he must fuck a woman or she'll go to hell.

I kind of had a crush on evil priest when I saw this movie at theater during age 12. ;_;

Abbott, Friday, 15 June 2007 01:13 (7 years ago) Permalink

That was the last Disney film I saw in the theatre...several parents walked out. True story: one old bag said to another, "These Disney people think they're David Lynch or something."

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn, Friday, 15 June 2007 01:16 (7 years ago) Permalink

HAHAHA that's awesome.

Abbott, Friday, 15 June 2007 01:17 (7 years ago) Permalink

I remembered the whole 'God have mercy on her...God have mercy on me' bit just before it came up! :D

Just got offed, Friday, 15 June 2007 01:19 (7 years ago) Permalink

yeah hunchback is sorta classic despite being a hot mess, i remember my parents were heckling it bc of happy ending and demi moore but i had a bunch of crude tracings of the gypsy jester guy in my shitty drawing notebook that summer

A B C, Friday, 15 June 2007 01:21 (7 years ago) Permalink

I had a crush on him, too.

Abbott, Friday, 15 June 2007 01:23 (7 years ago) Permalink

That religious rapeanger song shit is blood money diamonds gr8080. The rest of the movie doesn't really live up to it.

Holy crap Benji is TEARING SHIT UP on "So You Think You Can Dance," gotta go

Dimension 5ive, Friday, 15 June 2007 01:30 (7 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I remember when I was watching Hunchback, and that priest scene came, and I was like holy shit, am I still watching a Disney film?! But most of the movie was pretty uneven, and I never understood why, if the theme of the movie was that apperances don't matter, did Esmeralda choose the handsome prince anyway, and the Hunchback was left without any cookie? Either make it a tragedy like the original, or make him get the girl, but the ending we got was pretty half-assed.

Pete's Dragon is a bizarre, dark Disney whatthehellwereyouthinking movie. And yet I kinda like it.

I was obsessed with Pete's Dragon as a kid. My favorite stuffed animal was a little Elliot pillow. I haven't seen it in years. The traveling magician (I think?) was way creepy and mickey rooney was such a drunk!

Yeah, it was pretty bizarre. I was a weird kid though.

Ha! My 3 year old was into it for awhile, but he started getting scared toward the end so I've put it away for a few years.

I had the read-along record so I'm intimately familiar with this one.

Wld rank Lady & the Tramp or Peter Pan ahead of it.

that sounds about right

Don't get me wrong, that ape is the WORST.

the Dandy Club (Abbbottt), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 23:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

Ape is based on Louis Prima, a white guy

I don't get what specifically about King Louie codes as "black", it's not nearly as straightforward as the crows in Dumbo or the cats in Lady & the Tramp. Louis basically plays himself - a goofy jazz singer. His overriding goal is to get the secret of fire from Mowgli (who is also, incidentally, not white). The argument that a white guy acting (arguably) like a black guy while expressing a desire to be more like another non-white character is RACIST seems pretty convoluted to me.

shakey OTM.

haha i'd forgotten the cats in 'lady and the tramp,' i assumed abbs was referring to the stereotyped italian chefs!
