An elf walks into a bar,
A hobbit laughs and walks under it.
Anonymous said: After seeing the NC's review of Swan Princess, I think I've come up with a good conclusion: the reason why most Diet Disney films don't work is because the filmmakers try to go for shallow beauty, shallow songs, & shallow characters that they think is what attracted many people to the popular Disney movies at the time (even though in reality, Disney was anything but shallow during this time). Do you think this is a fair analysis?
That could be correct. Sometimes people just want to make movies that are similar to more popular and acclaimed films but don’t take the time and effort to make them really good. But other times, I think when it comes down to it, certain movies just don’t come together right. The effort could be there but as a whole, they just don’t work as well as other films do and aren’t as widely enjoyed by audiences. Disney’s made some not-so-great movies [plus, we’ve seen them try to cash in on their own films by making direct to video/dvd sequels…] but I think the renaissance era was their best and some other people thought so too and tried to replicate it but they just couldn’t. Whether the effort was there or not, it just couldn’t be matched. - donna
