Tangled the movie comes to DVD and BluRay – Review and Giveaway

Disney’s 50th full-length animated feature film, Tangled is a visually appealing, music-filled adventure full of romance and humor. The movie focuses on Rapunzel, this latest retelling begins with a tiny piece of sunlight falling to earth and a magical golden flower sprouting where it lands. The flower, and its ability to restore youth, is discovered, used and kept secret by Mother Gothel. When the kingdom’s beloved queen falls ill, a search for the flower (apparently its existence wasn’t *completely* secret) is successfully undertaken and the healing potion brewed from it restores the queen’s health. The flower’s magical abilities are also transferred to the hair of the queen’s unborn child, Rapunzel. When Mother Gothel discovers this and learns that the magical properties are only retained as long as the hair remains uncut, she kidnaps Rapunzel and raises her as her own child. Claiming that she wants to keep Rapunzel safe from a frightening world full of danger and thugs, Mother Gothel locks her away in a remote tower. While her hair (almost a character in and of itself) grows longer and longer, Rapunzel blossoms into a surprisingly well-adjusted young woman and gifted artist who longs to see the world – particularly the mysterious lights that appear in the night sky each year on her birthday.

Enter our amusing narrator, Flynn Rider, a roguish thief who has just stolen a tiara and is on the run from palace guards when he comes across Rapunzel’s tower and takes refuge there. The very competent Rapunzel restrains Flynn, hides the tiara and strikes a bargain with him – she will return the tiara to him if he will agree to take her to see those mysterious lights, which he tells her are floating lanterns. Flynn agrees and the two set off on a rollicking adventure. Pursued now, not only by Maximus – a horse from the palace guard who refuses to give up the chase – but also by a pair of thugs Flynn double-crossed AND Mother Gothel, Flynn and Rapunzel learn to trust each other as they make one narrow escape from their pursuers after another.

 

I had the pleasure of watching this movie with my daughter this past weekend. As a parent and a dad I normally find myself watching a movie with my daughter but occupied with other things. That wasn’t the case with Tangled! I had a hard time taking my eyes off the TV! From a technical standpoint the animation was amazing! Remember cartoons as a kid on Saturday mornings? Yeah, this was like watching a real movie! O loved the movie as much as I did! The storyline really held up and although there were parts of it that my almost 3 year old might not have completely gotten she really enjoyed it! The best part of the movie was seeing my little girl smile and say, “Daddy, I want to see it again!”
