The second film in my Foreign Film Series stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien!!! GO HERE to read my review.
**Fair Warning--Spoilers Ahead**
It used to be that in any fairytale, when the words "true love's kiss" were uttered, it always suggested that the kiss in question would be between a man and a woman. A kiss from a couple who had fallen deeply in love at first sight. That's no longer the case.
Disney film stories were the epitome of this "true love" and "love at first sight" scenario. Now I've got nothing against Disney. They make perfectly good films. Really good ones in fact (see: Toy Story, Wall-E, Finding Nemo, etc.). They don't do these films alone of course--thank goodness for Pixar Animation!
Still, we have to remember that they also did Snow White. The story of a girl who falls into a deep sleep and wakes up only after Prince Charming kisses her. A prince she saw once, for a few minutes, and doesn't know his name. Then there's Sleeping Beauty. Same story sans dwarves.
So it comes as a truly welcome surprise when the last handful of Disney films have negated this tired trope. How do they do this? Well, let's dig in!
I love to write; been doing it for a while. Add to that my love for movies, and it wasn't long before I started writing about them. This page is for me to write about all the movies I watch and love, but don't get to cover in the podcast. So look around, leave your comments and enjoy!
