Movie #3: Fantasia (1940)
What can I say? This is beautiful forever and always. Definitely a huge nostalgia kick. I distinctly remembered the parts that I loved and the parts that I hated. I am really in love with the concept of creating the images that you make in your head when you listen to this music. It has always fascinated me, that concept, and Disney made it a thing, which is cool. There is so much to say about this movie but I don’t really know how to say it. All of it is beautiful. so much imagination in one piece. Also, in every second of that footage, I saw where the same kinds of design elements were going to be used later in other films and that was exciting. Just think what it would be like to go back and see this when this was all that Disney had. That’s just magical, the potential.

Movie #2: Pinocchio (1940)
So, oh my goodness, Pinocchio was out for 24 hours and he went through A LOT. This movie is heavy. I almost cried. I can’t believe what he went through. It is still pretty magical and I really appreciate the story. My heart will always break every time Gepetto calls Pinocchio’s name. Also, Figaro has to be the cutest kitty in the entire world. I cannot believe how much I want Figaro to be mine. Also, I just really want all of those boys that were turned into donkeys to be set back. That is really unsettling for me. Overall, this movie is great and it gives me a lot of feelings and I must have watched it a lot as a kid or something because the images were really familiar. Also, the message is great: be brave, truthful and unselfish. Pinocchio is another role model, kind of. ALSO I LOVE JIMINY CRICKET SO MUCH.
