Tiana’s Almost There

A friend and I decided a few weeks ago that we were going to watch “The Princess and the Frog” when it came out.  And that we did.

It was supposed to be categorized under the classic Disney movie, like “Aladdin” and “The Little Mermaid” because of the artwork and the music. Thus, people were looking at it from that perspective.  “Does it measure up to the classic Disney movies?”

Well, I was never immersed in the Disney craze of the 90’s.  Although I’ve watched some of the movies, I don’t see them as part of my childhood. (Things in the Philippines aren’t the same as those in the U.S.)  Don’t get me wrong.  I find some of the movies and the music pretty incredible, but I wasn’t one of the awestruck little children that marveled at the movie screen back then.  In fact, I think it was because of my lack of exposure to the Disney movies when I was young that really prompted me to watch this one in the first place.

The bottomline is, I didn’t have this perspective to judge “The Princess and the Frog,” which pretty much lead to me finding the movie quite enjoyable.   There were definitely some things that I felt were geared towards a younger audience.  Well, of course.  It is rated G.  Nevertheless, I thought the movie was good, to say the least.

What really got to me was the music though.  Wow.  I love jazz, so I loved how it was the theme of pretty much all the music.  I want the soundtrack now.
