Are you excited to see my list? Are you anxious to argue with my favorites? Are you ready to deconstruct what I think makes a good Disney movie? Because each time I see someone else's list, those are the thoughts I have. I get really excited to see how they rank the movies, what makes them choose certain films over others, and why they have certain preferences. I mentioned in my first two posts (#50-31 and #30-11) about how my brother or sister or friends influenced some of my choices, and that will continue in a couple of my choices on this part of the list. And, since movies are a more communal experience than many other forms of media, I think that makes sense. All of that said, let's get going!
the book was my favorite until I moved on to chapter books and Beverly Cleary swept my world. When the movie went to VHS in 1996, I didn't even know the story was 25 years old... I thought they just finally made the book into a movie, LoL. Through the video I was introduced to the music - and I think I am of the few who prefer "Scales and Arpeggios" to the more popular "Ev'rybody wants to be a Cat," but I think that all of the songs are great.
Well, that's that. It was a fun diversion to spend a few weeks discussing movies (many of which are near and dear to my heart), but we're back to television full-time next week, and Wednesdays will resume being lists of sorts. The poll on the right ends in just a few days, so vote if you haven't yet! It will help shape the future of this blog!
