I've been absent from fanpop for a while due to the end of school, but I'm back! And I figured it was about time I wrote another article. So after wanting to watch it for YEARS, I finally got around to watching Hercules. I know it's not officially a DP movie, but I've heard it mentioned a lot on here and I wanted to share my opinion of it. Overall Impression
Fun to watch! A bit cheesy as disney filmes go, but still a good story. It was an interesting take on the original legend, and though they changed a lot I found that I was still able to lose myself in Disney's version. I liked most of the characters, especially Megara and Hades. Their dynamic was great! She knew how far to push him but didn't aggravate him too much. I liked several of the songs, though a few of them were rather bland (pretty much anything sung por Hercules got on my nerves). I really enjoyed the animation. It seemed very Ancient Greek to me and set the mood for the entire movie. Favorite Characters
I absolutely ADORED the Muses!! They were amazing singers and it was a great idea to make them the narrators. I loved every scene in which they were featured. They each had their individual personalities which their movements and actions reflected. They were just a really great part of the movie for me.
Megara of course was another highlight. She had such a great personality! I amor how strong she is - she even saves Hercules at one point! I can relate to her in that I don't like to admit to myself when I've fallen for a guy. I tend to stick to the belief the boys will only hurt you - until of course I fall for another one. I've also had a boy dump me for a different girl so I know a bit of what Meg is feeling in that regard. I enjoy her cantar voice quite a bit, though it's not one of my topo, início favorites.
Also, Scar's cameo was pretty awesome. Just sayin'. ;D Favorite Song
Definitely I Won't Say I'm in Love
! It's a song I've grown up with, even though I'd never seen the movie before now, and I've always adored it. I completely understand where Meg's coming from, and it's so much fun to sing along to! The back and forth argument between Meg and the Muses is both funny and touching, not to mention that it's sung incredibly well. Should Megara be a disney Princess?
This is a tough one. Though I wouldn't mind it if she was a part of the lineup, in many ways I'm glad she isn't. por dating the son of a god, that technically gives her princess status, but because she isn't born of royalty or married to a royal, she really isn't a princess. Also, I didn't enjoy her movie as much as I enjoy the DP movies. Something about it just didn't grab me the way those do.
Sorry this is so short. I'm working on some other projects away from fanpop right now and I want to focus on them. I hope you enjoyed it!
OMG it's Scar!
