Right? Tom Hulce did a beautiful job with Quasi's songs. "Heaven's Light" is amazing.

When my daughter visited Paris on her own two years ago, I asked if she sang "The Bells of Notre Dame" (one of my favorite songs ever) under her breath. She said "Of course." :)

The musical version is debuting in San Francisco in a month or two. See the page before this one for details :)

I really believe Hunchback would be considered one of the Disney classics if not for the gargoyles. I'd love to see a version where they just snip all their scenes out. But overall, the score, the songs, the cinematography and animation, everything is amazing.

The first Elsa outfit is not sexy at all. I mean none of them are but that one especially.

I swear to Betsy Sleeping Beauty is the most re-issued Disney film ever. Kinda tempted to get this version for the cover of Maleficent and Aurora instead of the usual Beauty, well, sleeping.

Big Hero 6 was so good! Disney Feature Animation has been on a roll in the past few years. I liked this even better than Tangled, Frozen, and Wreck-It Ralph.

My Frozen-obsessed (and very mature) 3.5 year old (excuse me, she would correct me and explain that she is three and two thirds) has yet to see a movie in the theater and we've been thinking about taking her to Big Hero 6. Any insight on appropriateness for a small-but-mighty kiddo?

Hiro's brother dies off-screen in an explosion in the first act and Baymax diagnoses Hiro as going through puberty and is cut off just before he can mention pubic hair growth, but otherwise nothing in this movie seems much harder to deal with than Wreck-It Ralph or Frozen.

I liked it. Like all Marvel movies, it has a post-credits tag that was absolutely wonderful and pays off a brief sight gag earlier in the film.

One touch I really liked was how Honey Lemon insisted on pronouncing Hiro's name with a rolled R even though Hiro himself and everybody else uses a soft mid-western R. Like she's one of those Japanophile's who insists on watching only subtitled imported anime. She wasn't off-putting and she seemed to really like Hiro, she just chose to put these weird affected accents whenever she said anything vaguely Japanese.

The way Disney is marketing this movie is very interesting to me. They're counting it as the 54th Animated Feature from the studio, and as such it's a Disney movie first and foremost, even though it's an adaptation of an existing property. Which means Marvel gets no mention at all except for some credits at the end. And if you look at the figures that just came out for Disney Infinity, the Big Hero 6 characters are listed as "Disney Originals" instead of being part of the "Marvel Super Hero" line-up.

My 9 year old and I went to see it and both of us really enjoyed it. I made him stay for the after credits scene and he was glad I did. It hit a lot of great notes. More emotional than I was expecting.

they're having Emma Watson play Belle in the live-action Beauty and the Beast Disney version? eeeeh. I guess she could be okay.

I saw Maleficent last night. I thought that was pretty awful actually and cringing in every other scene from the cheesiness. Who knew Maleficent was lurking just outside the frame in every scene of Sleeping Beauty? And yeah, it's a Disney movie, it's supposed to be cheesy, but there's good cheesy and then there's bad cheesy, I found it the latter. Just not for me I guess.

Brief review of the Hunchback musical

Spoiler:
I have no major complaints, the show was really good. Loved hearing that amazing choir live. All the performers were great, my favorite was probably Michael Arden (Quasimodo), his voice was gorgeous. I do wish they left “Tanz der Zigeuner” and “Tanz auf dem Seil” in, but it’s not a major complaint at all. I read one review that said the new song, “Flight into Egypt”, was bad … I dunno why I took this review at its word but I did and was expecting it to be dull, but I really liked it. They also improved “The Court of Miracles” a lot. I don’t care for it in the movie but I enjoyed it here. They slowed it down and made it less peppy. I think they did a good job mixing the movie and the book, and I thought they did a pretty good job with Pheobus’ character because I totally forgot he’s an ass in the book until well into the second act. Probably the only thing I didn’t think they improved on from the film was that I didn’t think they really made clear what the law of sanctuary was. I sat in the first row (albeit to the utmost left part of the orchestra) so I had fun observing a lot of the costumes, which were pretty good.

Although it seems like they're treating it less as the movie turned into a stage musical and more the book turned into a stage musical with songs from the Disney movie, because it said in the playbill "based on the book by Victor Hugo with songs from the Disney movie".
