Monday Movie Meme (2)


Feature Presentation...
MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Your Childhood Favorite...

I had a couple of favorites as a kid...I thoroughly enjoyed Cinderella and the Little Mermaid. It got so bad that my mother had to hide the VHS tape of Cinderella so I'd quit watching it so much! But now that I'm older I find these fairy tales a bit trite and anti-feminist. Why must the princess always be rescued? Why does Ariel fall in love with Eric when he's kind of rude to her and why must she change and he doesn't? I think most of the Disney films are like this. They're still fun and entertaining, though.

I also remember loving Batman when it first came out with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson and then I rewatched it about 12 years later and found that my perspective had completely changed. I thought it was just awful.

I have so many more favorites now than when I was a child since my tastes and views of the world have changed over the years.

  2. It's funny that you said that about Disney - my mother raised us constantly complaining that Walt Disney was a sexist! Didn't stop me from loving all those films - but I admire my mother's efforts to point out the inequality!
