Side note: To make it easier in case you're not familiar with the movies, I've linked them to their imdb pages.
For example, in the past my friend J talked about how great "The Incredibles" was. This was backed up by another friend, S. I was so eager to watch it because I wanted to join in the fun, but alas...when I watched it, I think I may have expected WAY too much (or way too differently), so I was left disappointed so to speak. It was funny in parts, but nothing special for me.
Among the girls, I'm the only one who's totally crazy about "Ice Age" trilogy. All of them think that Ice Age is fine, but nothing much.
N loves "The Emperor's New Groove" along with another friend F, but I don't think it's too memorable.
I love "Tangled" (esp. the horse's character Maximus!!!! I'm a HUGE FAN!!!!), whereas F says that she doesn't really like it.
The last animated movie we were discussing was "Brave". I had been DYING to see it ever since I saw the trailer. An independent princess who knows how to shoot arrows so well? A rebellious young lady who refuses to follow the norm? My kind of heroine! :-D
J and S loved "Brave" so much, but J thought that I wouldn't be so crazy about it. F also enjoyed watching "Brave" much more than "Tangled".
Finally last night we got a chance to watch "Brave". And even though it was funny, I think again I had had a different idea on what the story would be (after watching the trailer), so I was rather taken aback at the plot that continued after the trailer ended. So unfortunately I think J was right in thinking that "Brave" wasn't going to be my fave animated movies, even though I had been dying to watch it.
Conclusion: Sometimes I think it's better NOT to expect anything at all than being disappointed in the end ha ha ha ha ha...but then again it's rather hard at times esp. if you wish the story would go a certain way, but it doesn't. Oh well he he he...
Because I love Maximus so much, let me share this fun video with you...this isn't included in the movie itself. I found it on youtube. I just watched it again and couldn't help laughiiinngggg HA HA HA HA HAAHHHH...
