Post your unpopular Disney opinion here. Express your opinion about not only DP but Disney in general. Please be respectful about each other's opinions and don't bash someone because of it. Say "I disagree/agree with you because..." I'm sure everyone is mature enough to handle it.

I don't think The Lion King is all that great. It's fun, yeah, and the opening is phenomenal, but the rest of it was just kinda meh for me. Simba got on my nerves, and Pumbaa and Timon weren't all that funny.

I think if you dislike something, you should have a logical and well thought out reason for disliking it. This is mainly due to the fact that it takes little to no effort to like something, as there is usually at least one element that calls out to you. Disliking something takes effort and I think that effort should be well justified.

I'm probably going to be big-time bashed for this, but I don't really consider the ending to Pocahontas all that sad. Yes, it IS a bit somber, but we have to be happy that John is going back home to get the best treatment he can.

I find Peter Pan 2 to be a much better movie than the first one. They focus a lot more on the characters such as Jane needing to learn to have fun, despite living during a war. They also focus a lot more on consequences such as whenTtinkerbell almost dies, and they have a very empowered female character in the form of Jane who is able to pick herself up after failing and save everyone.
shanyuisboss commented…
To be honest, I think Peter Pan is probably one of the most overrated डिज़्नी फिल्में and also one of the worst. Not only was it racist, the एनीमेशन stunk, Captain Hook and Smee were some of the most annoying characters on the planet, and so were the लॉस्ट boys, Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, and even Wendy. I feel like everyone in the movie got on my nerves. The songs were weird except for the mother song, and संपूर्ण, कुल मिलाकर it is a terrible movie. The sequel on the other hand was one of the best फिल्में डिज़्नी has made. Jane was really a unique character, Wendy was way better, Captain Hook was toned down, and Smee was actually funny for once, the लॉस्ट boys were annoying but it wasn't to the point where I just couldn't handle watching the movie, it was enough to portray the character, Peter Pan was actually really cool, and the movie had a और smooth flow. I didn't like the songs, but the एनीमेशन was beautiful and I loved it. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

Ugh, whenever the subject of an LGBT princess or Disney character comes up on here I get a headache. Why? Because then we begin with the arguments and disagreements and it just annoys me a bit. Actually, a few months ago we had decided not to bring up that subject because a lot of arguments arise from controversial topics like that. Plus, people sometimes disrespect each other's opinions on this and the community feel that we have temporarily leaves and things become more tense. Not that we should never ever mention the possibility of an LGBT character but we shouldn't focus to much on it. I get annoyed whenever debates on it come up in real life so I don't want to see more arguing on that subject here on Fanpop. Is this an unpopular opinion? Or am I just too diplomatic for these sorts of things? Who knows. Keep in mind that I'm not saying that the whole club gets tense and that we all begin to fight but the polls can get ugly pretty quickly and sometimes these disagreements can lead users to dislike each other. Also, I must clarify that it's not like we're seeing this subject a lot all over the club but it has been in the polls lately and that reminded me of this opinion. Why are my opinions so long? lol

Where do I stand on this subject? Mwahahaha the world may never know. Well, the worldly probably doesn't care anyway lol but anyway, I'm not getting into that :)
Silverrose1991 commented…
I don't like the arguments either - even the ones I get into - but we can't just sweep the matter under the rug. Though I do think that we already had many "Do आप want a LGBTQ+ princess?" मतदानो this year. I think we should wait another year, because the general consensus has remained the same (unfortunately). Otherwise, I'm really excited for princesslullaby's gay crossover couples countdowns.

I prefer Disney's "dark age" movies. I dislike the newer ones like Tangled and Frozen. I'm not fond of the renaissance and I could do with out some of the classic ones. I like stages after the classics and after the renaissance. Some of my favorites are The Sword and The Stone, 101 Dalmatians, Alice in Wonderland, Hunch Back of Notre Dame, Brother Bear and Hercules. I like Aladdin as well, but that's not very unpopular.

But I completely disagree on Belle and Aurora, I find them both sort of "overrated" in the beauty department (Air कोट्स because their really is no such thing as something being overrated) Aurora is 12th on my सूची because she's kind of plain and I hate how fake and perfect they tried to make her look.

I don't really get the appeal in listing animated characters based on beauty. Just from the fact of being animated characters, they're all going to have the same symmetrical faces, same Disneyfied large eyes and same Disney standard Unrealistic Hair (TM). Any other differences the girls have such as noses or lips are usually drawn that way to categorize the girl by race, and I feel a bit unsettled to judge the characters based on that. (For example the majority opinion on Fanpop seems to be that the more Caucasian noses are the most appealing. See this poll for example: link
Tiana and Mulan's noses are criticized a lot for being too stubby, while Jasmines is criticized for being to large, yet the groups of people that these girls represent, have the exact same features.)

In addition, with judging animated characters, you are forced to judge them based on the frame you are currently seeing, which can be entirely different to the ones displayed at other times. For example, Pocahontas is repeatedly described as looking like she has no nose based on this picture: link whereas in this still right after, there is no doubt that she has one: link.

My central argument comes down to the point that these characters where specifically drawn so that they would looking appealing to the most number of people. If any of these characters existed as real live human beings they would be drop dead gorgeous. So any comparison between these characters is based on completely arbitrary factors such as the still you are currently studying, or a bit more unsettlingly, subconscious racism.
Silverrose1991 commented…
I do think आप have a lot of reason about the race factor. I've been trying to be और open to different kinds of beauty lately, since these caucasian feautures have been presented to me द्वारा society as the ideal of beauty. For example, most black women that magazines and the public find beautiful have thinner features, wavy/straight hair, lighter skin, etc. However, I still find interesting ranking these animated characters द्वारा beauty. It's fun and we can't just create this policy of not having women of different races in a same beauty सूची or, in real life, participating in the same beauty contest. To the women of one race, it'll create the feeling of superiority या even inferiority, that "their beauty can't compare to ours". Plus, it's a bit segregrational. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

People like to talk about supposed bad character development in films like Frozen, Tangled, PaTF, and Mulan but, honestly, I feel that the 3 classic films have the worst character development since none of the characters ever change. Every character is exactly the same at the end of the film than they are at the beginning except for the happy ending. I don't see how that can be considered good character development compared to the characters in the more modern films that I at least change at some point in the film. Don't get me wrong, I like the classic films and Snow White is one of my favorite DPs but the characters are all pretty one dimensional with the 3 princesses being the most complex characters and even then they are very perfect,pproper young ladies and we don't ever get to see much in the way of flaws from them. I don't think that they are bad characters at all but they aren't as complex as the more modern ones. Yes, the classics are products of their time but so are all the princesses to an extent, so is everything for that matter to an extent, but just because the films were made decades ago that doesn't mean that complex characters or character development did not exist back then. Disney just chose not to develop the characters or make them complex. What I'm trying to say is that if someone is going to put down the characters in the modern films for having bad development or not being complex then I expect them to say the same or even worse about the classic DP characters. I ramble too much, I've even forgotten why I even wrote this in the first place lol. Is this even an unpopular opinion?
avatar_tla_fan commented…
Well, since I disagree, it's probably popular. xD. Our opinions are so opposite, wow. I think the classics are very complex and interesting characters. The only DP who I don't think is complex is Mulan. Her personality is pretty generic and uninteresting to me. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

Ooh, I have another one! Even though I love the characters, music, and animation of Brave, I find the story very unoriginal and I get easily bored with it. I like it less and less every time I see it. It is easily one of Pixar's least original films and it lacks Disney magic. It is at the bottom of my list along with Cinderella. It's strange how the plot alone makes me like it less than most of the DP films but it just doesn't excite me, I wish that it were more epic and action packed, like the trailers made it out to be. It is not a bad film but it just seems sort of average to me, it lacks that special something that makes me want to rewatch a film. That being said, I love Merida! She's in my top 5. See, it's weird because the film does have interesting characters, gorgeous animation, and a lovely score but a great, memorable, exciting plot is what seems to be missing for me and keeps me from loving this movie.

This is REALLY unusual, but bare with me. I used to work in Renaissance Fairs, and researched and dressed in historically accurate European women's clothes. Naturally, I'm privy to ye olde women's underthings. And it drives me CRAZY when films that depict Western women from olden times (basically pre-1920's Flapper Movement) show them to be bare-legged under their skirts; particularly those with skirts that go down to their ankles. And that includes Disney's fairy tale era women.

I can understand Briar Rose since she was raised in the woods with fairies who knew little to nothing about humans, Rapunzel since she was raised alone in a tower in the forest by the centuries-old Gothel and is barefoot anyway, and Elsa's ice dress since it was of her own design, but there's little excuse for the others.

With few exceptions, Western women always had their entire legs covered under their skirts. They had at least stockings that went up their legs, tied in place by some sort of garter, and over that some sort of knee-length bloomers. You wouldn't see bare legs flashing like Snow White's iconic yellow and blue dress, Ariel's town dress, or Belle's standard blue dress. I know those aren't the most historically accurate, but it still makes me crazy. Especially the modern ones. In Tangled, we see a glimpse of Gothel's and the Queen's bare leg between their skirts and boots. In Frozen, we see a brief glimpse of the Queen's and Anna's bare leg.

The most "accurate" I've seen is Elsa's and Anna's coronation dresses. Even though Elsa's wearing dainty flats instead of boots (as Snow, Ariel and Belle were), she's got tights over her legs. Even when she's running, we never see a flash of her bare leg. And of course we seen Anna's coronation bloomers many times--which really begs the question of why she's suddenly bare-legged under her supposedly warmer winter clothes (as we see when she tries to climb the cliff in front of Kristoff).

I don't know. If you don't agree, you can defend it all you want. "It's fiction." "It's a fairy tale." "The outfits aren't exactly historically accurate anyway." I know, I know. But it still bothers me.

I wish PATF hadn't pounded the "wishing and believing in magic is dumb, you have to work hard" theme into our heads. You can get a point across without being so repetitive and anvilicious about it. (That strongly goes for Frozen too.) It's also pretty silly coming from Disney. I also wish they hadn't made Tiana so obsessed with her restaurant. Being fixated on a business can come off as a little greedy. Can't she have other interests or hobbies?
Tygers_Eye commented…
I rather agree except for two things. 1) UNFORTUNATELY, people ARE dumb enough that डिज़्नी needs to be repetitive and anvilicious about it. Most people are saying "Frozen is the first डिज़्नी movie to portray sisterly love/show आप don't need a man to save the day/not end in marriage/show that marrying someone आप just met is dumb" etc BECAUSE it's not subtle about it the way past डिज़्नी films were. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना
Tygers_Eye commented…
2) I feel Tiana's obsession with her restaurant was a product of its time. Everyone at the time was criticizing डिज़्नी for having their princesses want to find प्यार (classic princesses) and/or have really vague desires (like Belle and Pocahontas). So they gave Tiana a specific motivation, only for the crowds to say "Eh, that's too specific. Girls who don't want a restaurant या see the floating lights can't relate to it," so they changed the motivations back to being और vague for Frozen. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

I've talked about it before, but I need to rant again. It really annoys me when people complain about Prince Charming from Cinderella. The arguments always center around "he only danced with her because she was pretty!" or "he didn't search for her himself!"

Duh, of course he didn't. He wasn't the one who arranged the search: his father was. The Prince merely said he would marry the girl whom the slipper fits, and the King twisted his words (News flash: Charming wasn't going to marry any girl whose feet were small enough!). He probably got mad when he found out his father went behind his back.

As for ignoring all the other girls but Cinderella: it was love at first sight. There were other beautiful maidens at the ball (Princess Frederica whatever-her-name and others), but none of them struck with him. When he saw Cinderella, the only girl who wasn't waiting in line to greet him, he simply felt drawn to her. That's the way things work in folklore and even other fiction sometimes.

Okay, done ranting.

I rather agree. The Duke explaings the absurdity of प्यार at first sight when the prince spots सिंडरेला and walks up to her, दिखा रहा है that the filmmakers KNOW it's unrealistic and absurd, but in this case, for this story, true प्यार does happen. And I can't agree और about the father going behind the son's back. People who whine "He didn't even go to खोजिए for her!" I think, "Have आप not seen this movie since आप were 3?" The film makes it clear that while the prince कहा he would not rest until he found the girl who fits the slipper, what he MEANT was he would not rest until he found the girl who OWNS the slipper. However, his dad wanted him to get married ASAP and so deliberately misinterpreted his words. "But Sire! This slipper can fit any number of girls!" "That's his problem.

I'm really growing disillusioned with the Disney Princess lineup, for all the creativity it stifles and conformity it demands. Disney princess movies all seem to follow a standard formula, Disney princesses have to fit a standard mold, and those that don't are configured until they do.

Just look at the latest addition to the lineup. "The Snow Queen" is a very unique, atypical fairy tale about a little peasant girl who sets off alone to save her best friend from the "beautiful, powerful, dangerous, cold" and enigmatic Snow Queen, and is hindered and helped by many women (kind and cruel) and animals she encounters on the way. What does Disney do? Why, gut it and reconfigure the few parts they didn't throw away to fit the standard Disney Princess movie formula, of course. Make the little peasant girl a teenage princess to sell dolls, make the Snow Queen the princess's sister to make her "relatable" (and get two princesses for the price of one), add a male guide to enforce girls' dependence on men (in-story and out), change all the sidekicks and background characters from female to male to give the film an all-male presence to appeal to men who might be grossed out by the two female protagonists, etc.

And Merida! Ohhh. She was designed to be the atypical, a-romantic princess who is an unabashed tomboy, loves archery and swordsmanship, can't stand the confines of silk dresses or restrained hair, isn't interested in romance or ready for marriage, doesn't sing, etc. So what does Disney do? Exactly what Merida and the girls meant to relate to her hate. Redesign her to fit the standard princess mold, showing that all girls should be interested in makeup, hair, fashion, and sparkling dresses even if they claim to not be interested. Same with Mulan.

I could go on and on. Like the Nostalgia Chick said, they're all teenage coming-of-age romance-driven fairy tales. And God forbid the movie or one of the princesses deviate from the cookie-cutter mold even a little, Disney will gut it until it is.

I don't get the appeal of Fantasia. Unpopular opinion but I much prefer the sequel.

And I don't like how when Doug Walker made his silly "Disneycember" videos everybody changed their opinions about these movies to match his.

I like the non-princess movies just as much as the princess ones (and depending on which movie, sometimes more or less). I like Bambi and The Jungle Book just as much as Sleeping Beauty or Beauty and the Beast.

I find non-Disney movies to be as good or sometimes even better than the Disney ones (The Last Unicorn and Secret of Kells are personal favorites of mine).

I think Fantasia is beautiful, but I understand why others aren't interested in it. I agree with your Doug Walker opinion. People shouldn't be so easily influenced द्वारा HIS opRinions. I respect his, but I don't have to always agree with them. I usually PEFER non-DP फिल्में to DP movies. I प्यार the डिज़्नी Princess movies, but there are so many non-Princess ones that I love.

I really like Fantasia. I think it's gorgeous and I can't help but marvel at how good it was for it's time. I also प्यार how all the movements of the characters match up with the संगीत and how they made the characters have personalities just द्वारा the movements and music. I like the sequel just as much, but I can't marvel at how good it was for it's time like I can the first. About the nostalgia critic ( Doug Walker) I'm going to have to strongly disagree with आप on this one. I can't speak for everyone, but when I saw my first NC video (On youtube. It was either the चोटी, शीर्ष 11 dumbest Spiderman moments या the हंस princess review) I started actively watching his वीडियो because of how much I agreed with him and the things I saw first watch of the movie. Sometimes my opinions change when I watch his videos, but only when he explains his reasoning and brings up really good points. I sometimes agree (The वीडियो brought up) and I sometimes disagree (I am STILL cringing at his Full house review) एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

It's not an unpopular opinion, just a random headcanon, so I thought it'd fit here: I imagine that if all the DPs saw "Frozen" together, during the "Love is an Open Door" scene, all but Snow White, Cinderella and Aurora would believe Hans' act. They would just narrow their eyes and say "How can you believe this? Puh-lease, it's obviously not true love. The poor duckling is being tricked!"

Apparently this is an unpopular opinion, I'm actually o.k., maybe even glad, that Pixar will probably make Toy Story 4. Again, I had no idea that this was an unpopular opinion until today, I remember how everyone I knew back when Toy Story 3 was released complained about the sad ending and how they wanted to see another Toy Story film.
Aang_Lite commented…
I didn't see it as a sad ending, और as a bittersweet one. Even though Andy didn't find joy in playing with toys anymore, he was able to give them to someone who was fully capable of living the adventure. And in the moment of transition, both where able to find joy, the young girl from the toys, and Andy from the sharing. It was incredibly beautiful and perfect ending in my opinion.

Remember how Elsa wears her conservative coronation dress, opera gloves, and proper bun to symbol how formal, stifled, and repressed she feels? And then during "Let It Go" she changes into her revealing, gloveless, loose-braided ice outfit to symbolize how liberated she feels? And then she stays in that exact same outfit through the whole movie?

I kind of wish they had altered her outfit after Anna reveals the kingdom is Frozen over, or the guards come for her, or when she's in prison; some time over the movie to show she's lapsing back into her fear and self-repression. It doesn't have to be anything major; maybe a more conservative version of her ice dress, or a thicker cape or ice coat she wraps herself in to show how much more vulnerable she feels, or an ice crown and gloves to show she's reminding herself she's still responsible for her subjects and needs to reign her powers in again. Something.

I LOVE symbolism, and love how Elsa's two outfits symbolize her emotional states. Which is why I find it JARRING how Elsa stays in her symbolically liberated ice dress (without so much as a minor accessory alteration) even when she's once again burdened with her old anxiety and self-repression.

I personally would have liked it better if Elsa wore her coronation dress and gloves at the beginning, changed into her iconic ice dress during "Let It Go," then had a more conservative (or even ripped-frayed) version of her ice outfit after Anna reveals the kingdom's frozen over and she's back to stressing, then ends up back in her iconic ice dress at the very end when she regains her confidence and thaws winter.

I प्यार your idea, Tygers. I can see Elsa drapped in a बरसती, लबादा of ice as she chants her opressive mantra and her majestic palace grows red and jagged. I प्यार Scarlet's idea even more. I was thinking the same thing the other day. It would be hardly unpractical to wear such a flashy, skintight dress everyday as she performs her queenly duties. Maybe a less conservative version of her coronation gown, without the high-collar and the gloves. Also, a different hairstyle, like this: link एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

Okay, what would you guys think if Disney openly made a princess with a mental/physical illness? Not something like Elsa which her ice powers were a "metaphor" for depression but actually the real deal, she even announces her condition at one point in the movie. Maybe we could have an autistic/aspergers princess. Please don't be angry! I myself suffer from depression and anxiety and have huge problems with my social skills, so I'm also speaking of this matter as an interest, I don't want to be insensitive.
Tygers_Eye commented…
I wouldn't mind a princess who behaves like someone on the spectrum; displays a lot of the same symptoms, seems to see the world differently, and uses her unique worldview and problem-solving skills to tell a और unique story and resolution to the plot. But if she's a डिज़्नी Princess, as in a ye olde tyme faery tale setting, that was before they had modern psychology and diagnostics. If she said, "Oh, I have Aspergers" the story would have to dive into how she knows that, who diagnosed her, how it affects her life, how it tends to affect other people like her, and who had time for that in Medieval Europe? No one, that's who. आप fit in या आप didn't. If आप wanted to fit in, आप acted like everyone else. It was that simple. Again, I wouldn't mind someone who might display common characteristics, but I'd rather the movie kept it vague and focus on how it makes her a unique, relatable, likable person, not a character with that syndrom. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

I'll say it; I find the Disney community here much more likable and welcoming than the Disney fandom on tumblr.
This place encourages open communication, friendly debate and it's a warm and welcoming place.

I mean, tumblr may seem cool at first, with the graphics and "funny jokes" and such, and i agree with the need of more diversity in Disney films, but then you get into the nasty side of tumblr where misinformation and emotional manipulation spreads around wildly, art theft and doxxing happens all the time, racism is rampant, immatureness is encouraged and people are overly angry and hostile and want you to be angry with everything and everybody must have the same disney opinions (you love frozen, you love tangled). If you have a slight commentary against a princess you're immediately hounded and it's forbidden to like something like Bambi or whatever over most of the Princess films. it sucks. Now the newest thing is that BH6 is bad because Hiro is biracial and Honey is a white latina, and according to tumblr biracial people are scum and there are only dark latinos...It's just sooo...*donks head*

This is going to be really controversial, and I deeply apologize, but I have to get it off my chest somewhere and this seems like the safest environment.

Going off what scarletunicorn said above: As of Frozen and BH6, I feel like Disney is sort of cheating by making ethnic characters who tend to look and sound very white. As in, you would never know they were part of this ethnicity unless you were told, so most casual viewers (which is most of their audience) would just assume they're white. Yet, by making them ethnic on paper, they can brush off people accusing them of imbalanced racial representation by saying "Kristoff is Sami and Honey is Latina, so pipe down."

And I know this opens a whole can of worms. I'm not saying an ethnic person has to have darker pigment. I'm not saying characters have to be obvious stereotypes and caricatures of their respective ethnicity and/or culture. I'm not saying they're less valid or human or likable/relatable/interesting by being ethnic characters who happen to be pale and blonde. I'm not saying that, because I don't think it's true. Pale, blonde Sami and Latina people exist and deserve representation, acknowledgement and validation as well.

However, from a story standpoint... since these character's ethnicity or cultural background never comes up in the film, is never explored (we don't exactly see Kristoff's home village or Honey's family life), and doesn't seem to influence their personalities or worldviews one way or the other to the point that the filmmakers could literally just SAY "X is white" and it would change nothing (except maybe Honey's VA's delivery of the lines, but then you could reason that Honey is very culturally accepting and rolls her r's because she's using Hiro's correct Japanese pronunciation)... I wonder what's the point of making a character who is X in name only other than so they can point and say, "See? We have a character that is X, so stop hounding us."

I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe that's not their intention. Maybe I'm the one that's racist for saying it. All I do know is that, MUCH LIKE how I feel Disney keeps playing both sides of the fence by harping on how love-at-first-sight is stupid but love after a day-and-a-half is genuine, I kind of feel like Disney is playing both sides of the fence here.

Again, I apologize if what I just said is offensive or off the mark. That's just how I see it.

The thing is, the movie ends with her not really forming an emotional bond with anyone. Sure, she learns control of her powers, but after years of separating herself from the world she never really forms a bond with anyone that shows she no longer afraid of hurting people. I mean, does she even have a friend? The movie doesn't really give a lot of closure when it comes to her emotional state, so I think it makes sense for people to try and fill that gap with a relationship. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

I think I've said this before, but I find The Little Mermaid and Prince Eric to be very phonocentric. For those who don't know, phonocentrism is the attitude that spoken language is superior to sign and written. This can extend toward people; that people who talk out loud are better than those who are deaf, mute, or sign.

And boy does Eric have this attitude in abundance. After Ariel saves him, all he gets out of the encounter is: "She had the most beautiful voice," and all he remembers about her is, "That voice! I can't get it out of my head." And we SEE Ariel from Eric's perspective as he wakes up, so I don't buy the "He couldn't see what she looked like so he had nothing else to go on" excuse. Even if he can't make out her minute features, we can still see her warm presence, adoring eyes, loving smile, and felt her tender touch.

In fact, he even recognizes her when he sees her again after she becomes human. However, the SECOND he leans she can't speak, he suddenly loses interest. "Oh, then you couldn't be who I thought." Oh, I'm sorry. Ariel looking like her, smiling like her, having the same adoring expression as her, and the same small gentle fingers as her doesn't matter, only the VOICE matters. No voice? No interest.

And you can argue that he starts to fall for Ariel over the two days they spend together, but she remains his second choice. He continues to play his recorder, fixating on the voice. Which leads to Grimsby telling him perhaps the best lesson in the whole movie: "If I may say, far better than any dream girl is one of flesh and blood; one warm and caring, and right before your eyes."

However, Eric visibly gives up on the voice with a heavy heart, and is clearly SETTLING for Ariel (the girl of flesh and blood, warm and caring, and right before his eyes). So much so that the SECOND he hears the voice a few moments later, he forgets his resolve and RUSHES to see who it belongs to. I guess the real girl is second choice to the voice after all.

Even after Eric's enchantment is removed and he sees Ariel again, what is his first reaction: "You can talk! You're The One! It was you all the time!" Oh, I see. When she was just a real girl who looked and acted like the one who rescued him, she was his second choice. Now that she has THAT VOICE that clearly means more to him than anything, SUDDENLY she's "The One."

The voice could have literally belonged to anyone in the crowd and he would have been "in love" with that girl because the voice matters to him more than the girl does.

This movie is hideously phonocentric.

I disagree. The reason why Eric is so obsessed with the voice is because it's the only thing he can connect back to the girl who saved him. Even if Ariel looked like the image he saw while almost unconscious it wouldn't make sense for her to be the same girl because she can't speak. It's not better या worse, there's no judgment या any phonocentric theme. There's just the basic fact that Areil and the girl who saved him cannot be one and the same. And I think it makes perfect sense for him to be obsessed with this mystery girl. I mean she saved his life, his very existence, wouldn't आप want to find the person who did that and thank them too? And It also makes sense for him to say that she's the One because he's likely had the suspicion the whole time that she was but it would just make no sense for who to be. But now suddenly that she has a voice of course it would make sense, not because she's better for having it, but because no logical leaps have to be made. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

The voice is और like symbolism in the story than the actual thing. Hey, it's better than falling in प्यार only becuase of her looks and because she was PUUURTY. I don't really see Eric as settling. I think it was rather open-minded of him to respect Ariel and take her around anyways but he's also a romantic at heart. आप could tell that he really did like her but was just unsure cause he was confused. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

I know this is an unpopular opinion but after Aladdin the only film of the Renaissance that I like is Tarzan. From Lion King to Mulan there's always something in these films that avoids me from fully enjoying them.
However I like Mermaid, Down Under, Beauty and Aladdin, but the ones that come afterwards...:P

I actually only like two "renaissance" films, which is मूलन and Tarzan, that are actually post renaissance. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

Tyger- There's elements in every film that stop from fully enjoying the film altogether. In Lion King there's waaay too many elements to count (plotholes, annoying characters, dumb humor...), I can't fully enjoy Pocahontas without thinking about how it's changing history and basically telling lies to an ignorant movie going audience, Hunchback depresses me a lot, I don't like the characters in Hercules and I hate the humor in Mulan. I may seem picky, but संपूर्ण, कुल मिलाकर these are BIG elements in these films, and that संपूर्ण, कुल मिलाकर stops me from enjoying them. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

1. The only character I "like" from Frozen is Hans. (just because before he was ruined he was the only normal character)
2. Both Rapunzel and Anna annoy me with their forced humour and bubblyness.
3.. I don't really like the music of Tangled and Frozen. I think it's too pop-ish and lacks the magic and uniqueness of the older soundtracks. But it's catchy anyway.
4.. I prefer 2D to CGI.
5.. I think Maleficient is a horrible movie.

All of these except for #1 are pretty लोकप्रिय opinions, especially 3-5. But anyways, I disagreewith all of these, but we all have our own opinions. :P एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

I hate Hans, he's so rushed and flawed. Then I agree with आप with most everything else, except I do like Let It Go. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

I also prefer 2D to CGI and Tangled's soundtrack is too pop-ish, not that classicness that other soundtracks have. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

After I say that I don't like CGI, I get really annoyed with the people that jump to explain that they don't really care about visuals, just the story. If "STORY" was the only component of a movie, I'd agree. But films are a visual medium. You have to sit and stare at something for an hour or two or three; especially animation since the visuals are constructed from nothing. Ideally it's a constructed world and characters that you find pleasing to look at instead of something you find dull, ugly, unnerving, or an eyesore.

I don't like the way CGI looks, especially characters. If I have to sit and stare at it for an hour and a half, the unpleasing visuals are going to pull me out of the story and experience. I can't be invested in characters when I can't even stand to look at them, or if the way they move or the way they look when they're wet remind me of living dolls (which is a huge phobia of mine).

If "STORY" is literally all that matters, then read a book or a screenplay. Since it's just words on a paper, the story is literally all that matters. But in visual and auditory mediums where moving pictures and accompanying voice work and music are put in front of us, I don't know about you, but it has to be a picture that I actually like to look at.

(0) Agreed, though I don't inherently dislike CGI. It can be stunning if done right, just like hand-drawn can be mediocre या an eyesore, imo. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

I agree about visuals being very important. Although I don't mind the look of CGI they're are animated films that I cant stand to watch because I hate their एनीमेशन so I completely understand you, it isn't just about the story especially with an animated film. एक साल  से अधिक पुराना

After watching Pocahontas recently, I realized how greedy Ratcliffe is. And, I also realized all he ever thinks about is himself.
