pardon me for the oh so very long list. another morning spent watching Disney movies and i can’t help myself but to do an extended review of all the legendary Disney movies … at least the ones that came to my mind.

what can i say?? i’m grateful to have been born in the time of Disney’s golden age. to think that i grow up in the period where they actually encourage dreams and love and magic in its purest form… i really pity my smallest sister who’s born a decade after me. if only they would stop the teenage wannabe movies and start making kick-ass animations like these again. i would run to the theaters for these.

the trailers don’t lie. they are indeed precious, unforgettable movies. and there’s always something about Disney movies. i know that i can never really see the movie as i would when i watched it as a younger child, but there are more things that i understand watching it as a teen. it’s how they make movies about race (Pocahontas), enemy tribes and outcasts (Lion King), and the love between the rich and the poor (Cinderella) with such delicate care that it’s educating as well as entertaining.

trailers vary. some have at least 4 reissued trailers (see Snow White and Pinocchio ._. ) and i learnt that trailers in the 1950s are still not in their very best form. anyways, spent an hour compiling, but alas, the time i enjoy wasting is not a time wasted–someone said.

in case you need help with my ridiculously long list:

(best trailer: reissued Beauty and the Beast) (monkeyish: Tarzan) (funny, imo: Mulan) (most favorite: reissued Cinderella) (the oldest, most ridiculous trailer that i’ve ever seen: Snow White)

so you guys better check those. might have missed some–give me a peep and i shall re-edit.

long live Disney and it’s array of goosebump-worthy movies.
