My girlfriend and I went to see Tangled in 3D the other day and it was BRILLIANT! A complete Disney classic. I was expecting it to be good but wasn't prepared for what it delivered. The story was strong, the characters were strong and likeable, the character designs were beautiful! At no point did I see a character and think "3D model syndrome" as I have done in a lot of animated films. They're all in the proper Disney style and it worked so well. The colours were fantastic too and the use of 3D was perfect. No "RANDOM OBJECT COMING AT YOU THROUGH THE SCREEN!" stuff. It was used to boost the composition and to add excitement in certain scenes. Also don't forget about the music, a lot of times when films break into song or dance these days I cringe and think scream "WHY??????" but it all worked so well with this one. Probably because it could be classed as an animated musical and that there isn't just a random one off song that breaks the film up.

But anyway, enough nice words and free marketing. Go see it and make your mind up. I think if Disney keep making them like this then they're definitely back on track.

Wow, I didn't even mention to animation in my first paragraph. It's astounding! So inspiring and a great mix between realistic movements and exaggeration. Congratulations to Disney for creating this. I hope it's the first of more to come.
