So we've been on a Disney movie kick around here lately. Clara had her first set of High School Mid-terms recently and after an intense week of studying, she wanted to relax and watch a marathon of Disney movies (I'm bring her up just right! LOL). So we've been breaking out a little bit of everything from Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty to Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Lion King and anything else that catches our fancy. I had joined the Disney Movie Club when they were little so we've got quite a collection. After watching Sleeping Beauty the other night, I realized that I just might be able to watch some of the cooler Bonus Features like the "Making of...." type of stuff, especially since Clara is so into drawing right now. When they were little, we could only play the games on all of these DVDs. I so enjoyed watching the making of Sleeping Beauty and Lady and the Tramp - great to see Walt talking about them and see stuff that was not used, etc. So now we might have to have a Making of... marathon :D
Also while we were looking for something we hadn't seen in a while and we stumbled upon "Atlantis - the Lost Empire". Now I bought this ages ago when it first came out and we watched it once. I had thought that something was wrong with the DVD and that was why, but we popped it in and it played fine. I realize now that I probably said that to them but I really thought the plot was over their head and it was quite violent, especially when they were so young. However, now at ages 14 and 12, they (and me too!) really enjoyed this movie! It reminded me of an animated National Treasure type of movie - it involved history, legend plus funny characters and Michael J. Fox! Afterwards we wondered why this movie hadn't been more popular with older kids, especially boys, at the time it was released. And now I think I might have to pick up Treasure Planet and give it a whirl too :D
So...watch any good Disney movies lately??
