Encanto (possible Spoilers)

Post by LadyTevar »

The movie is all over FB, with not only parents raving about it, but the average animation geeks also going nuts.

I finally got to watch it, and it's everything a Disney Movie with songs by Lin Miranda should be. Big musical numbers with a latino beat, deep heartfelt story, and the usual Disney Ending. 10 of 10

I'm not going to spoil anything in this post, but I'm hoping to discuss and break it down with y'all. :)

I rather liked it.It has a good ensemble cast and some good music (We Don't Talk About Bruno being the best song).

I've had that one stuck in my head the last two days, although Luisa's song "Surface Pressure" keeps "drip drip drip" inside my head as well

Overall, the movie is a really good look at how Family Expectations cause problems. Luisa's strength, Bruno's Visions, Isabella's "Perfection", all were already there and hurting the individuals. Even Pepa was constantly having to fight to keep the rain clouds away (and the hurricane was Her Nerves, not Bruno's Fault!). Mom Julietta seemed the only stable one!

It was a delightful piece and I enjoyed watching it.

Wow, they tried really hard to make "Let It Go 2".

One of those songs may almost literally have just been "Let It Go But With Flowers Instead Of Ice". Like seriously identical thematically and barely tweaked lyrics and visuals. :wtf:

My wife (being a huge Disney fan) loved the movie and already watched it twice.
For me it was OK (its not my type of movie). A kinda missed a good villain. Catchy songs though.

Ok, yes, I did get that as well. That's one of the weaker songs imho.
