The Movies Tag Q42: Film that started your interest in film?

QUESTION: Film that started your interest in film?
ANSWER: Aladdin

My first thought is that it has got to be an old Disney film, as that would have probably been the first film I ever watched. There was never a moment where I ‘became’ interested in film, it has just always been there since I became old enough to remember watching films.

As for which Disney film, it’s tough to recall. I may have to consult my sister…

So I spoke to my sister, and we’ve narrowed it down to the following: Aladdin, Mary Poppins, The Snowman, and Snow White. What’s that I hear you say? They aren’t all Disney films? No they’re not! 

I’m going to go with Aladdin, cause it would be very difficult to find out which film it is for sure. So yeah, there’s no interesting story behind the beginning of my love for film, I just watched Aladdin when I was little, and loved it.

Do you remember what got your interest in film started? Ooh and what was the first film you ever watched?

The Movies Tag Q11: Favourite animated film?

QUESTION: Favourite animated film?
ANSWER: Pocahontas

I’m starting to notice a trend here… ALL THESE QUESTIONS ARE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO ANSWER!! Alas, I have chosen a film. Pocahontas is my favourite animated film (by a smidge). It is a film that embodies all that is Disney: breath-taking colour, a mesmerising soundtrack, and a powerful and important message.

It’s a close call, however: There are many animated films that I love. Namely, Mulan and Aladdin down the Disney route, and of course any Studio Ghibli film, but three in particular would be Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and My Neighbour Totoro. I’m a big fan of both companies and I will always be in awe of the magic they can conjure (much cheese).

And if you need anymore, two other animated films that seem rather underrated but which I would highly recommend are Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and Robots. KA-KAAAAAA!!

Let me know in the comments below what your favourite animated film is! 🙂
