Genre & Length: Children’s Animation, 100 minutes

The Blurb:

When the kingdom’s most wanted – and most charming – bandit Flynn Rider hides in a mysterious tower, the last thing he expects to find is Rapunzel, a spirited teen with an unlikely superpower – 70 feet of magical golden hair! Together, the unlikely duo sets off on a fantastic journey filled with surprising heroes, laughter and suspense.

My Thoughts

Plot & Pacing: This is a children’s movie, so the plot is very simple and moves quickly. (Because children are easily distracted, y’know?)

I fell in love with this movie when I saw it in 3D at the dollar theater. (Yes, I’m cheap. :D) I’ve had it on my Christmas list every year for two years now, and Michelle finally gave it to me for my birthday after people kept messing up on the Christmas list. (The first year, I was given “Mars Needs Moms” instead of Tangled. I… still haven’t watched that one. I have no desire to. The second year, at least I was given “Brave”. I enjoyed that immensely, but still wanted Tangled soooooo much.)

Casting: I can’t name who did which voices without looking at an actual website that has the cast listed. That said, everyone did a fantastic job with their characters, and I especially enjoyed Flynn Rider’s voice actor.

Music: FANTASTIC. I still go around humming… especially this song:

And I love this scene & all the music, because it’s very River-Dance-y:



Special Effects: Well, considering the ENTIRE MOVIE is Pixar animation… they did a fantastic job.

Would I watch it again: ahem I refuse to answer on the grounds that it might incriminate me. This might now be tied with Phantom of the Opera and Beauty and the Beast as one of my favorite movies of all time.

What do you think?
