I'm nothing too terribly special, just your average Art Lover wanting to spend a little time on here to make friends, view wonderful art works, and improve her own drawing skills for the sake of personal satisfaction:iconsecretfoxplz:
Okay, this journal is mainly here to bump the old one out of the way, so I'll just use it to fan girl rave about the latest movie I've seen...

Guys,  I am in now completely and hopelessly in love with ' Strange Magic '. Holy muffins it is incredible just how much adore this movie, it's like they took a bunch of my favorite things and tied it all together with a big, frilly beautiful bow made of hearts, rainbows and sunshine happiness.:iconimhappiestplz::iconimhappiestplz::iconimhappiestplz:

And be forwarned right now, I'm fangirling here, so if you haven't seen the movie yet, there could be spoilers beyond this point!

Though while I thourghly love the move, I do have to say, most unfortunately, it didn't receive very good ratings(which probably is the reason I hadn't heard about it until very recently). Most of the reviews say that it was an unoriginal piece that was too much like 'Beauty and the Beast' crossed over with 'Epic'.
Which I kind of think is unfair and I disagree with that. To me, the idea of finding real, true love in unexpected places through hurt, anger and the blinding mists of infatuation is anything but unoriginal.

I think nowadays people expect there to be a lot more story in new movies...I'm one of them. And I will be the first to admit that 'Strange Magic' could have used a little bit more story, But I think that it's other qualities more than made up for it.

Seriously, this could have been a silent movie and I would still love it just as much because the animation alone is one of the most breathtaking and most beautiful that I have ever seen.
But joyfully, it isn't a silent movie, it's a musical; And they did a pretty upstanding job picking out the songs they chose and they also managed to bring together an awesome cast that were perfect for their characters.
And really, the only other problem that I had with the movie is that is went through a bit too quickly. But hey, I still loved it;)

If you were to ask me, though minus a few points for the lack of story, I think they took fantasy, romance, drama, action, humor, atmosphere and soul and put it all together in what I consider to be a beautifully heartwarming film, especially for a musical.
All in all, I would personally rate it a 9 out of 10.

So, If you guys are into romantic musicals consisting of funny Elves, Fairies with the most breathtaking wings, creepy cool goblins and mischievous imps, then I highly suggest you take a gander at this movie if you get a chance to.

Thanks for putting up with this guys, I love ya!:iconfoxyayzplz:
