The Princess and the Frog

I meant to watch this with Mei-Mei, but never got a chance. Ivan at least settled down with me on the couch and seemed to enjoy it well enough, his little head rising and his eyes opening wide at the images in front of his kitten's eyes.

Really liked it. Naveen was the weakest part of the story, even if he did fall for Tiana and her values and ethics during the course of the movie. Tiana was a positive new spin on the classic Disney heroine: she works hard for herself and her own dreams, not passively accepting shit from her evil stepmother or anyone else. I could see where she'd also ring bells for kittikattie with her mom being the best seamstress in New Orleans and being raised excellently by same after her dad won the Medal of Honor the hardest way.

Ray the Cajun firefly was fun, Louis the Alligator was too and the voodoo spirits summoned by Dr. Facilier were scary.

Only downside was that it got a little bogged down towards the middle and the CGI was too obvious at points. Bring back cel animation.

Now, can we have a decent Disney film about Latinos? All we have so far is "The Road to El Dorado" (HORRORS!) and "The Emperor's New Groove" (which isn't really about Latinos since it's about South American natives.)

Road to El Dorado was Dreamworks, and just like Emperor's New Groove, all the characters were indigenous people (well, aside from the two Spanish guys). I still liked both movies but I concur, it's not like Latinos aren't the largest minority group in the United States or anything...

Fanartist sites are always down, and that makes me sad.

I was just coming here to concur on P&tF and to say I felt the same way about Tangled.
