I love movies. And I’ve begun making my own collection of films that I will want to take with me to my own home after I get married. Movies I’ll want to see when I’ve got morning sickness and will need a distraction and some films that I’ll even want my kids to see while growing up–maybe not all when they’re very young, but some. So, may I present part 1 of my movie collection that is forever growing.
This is my latest addition which I picked up only this past Friday and I watched it again for the second time Monday evening. It’s a fun story with a beautiful score, hilarious characters and a setting similar to Nazi Concentration Camps–for chickens.
The Prince of Egypt
This has been one of my favorite animated films for a very, very long time. The music stands out above everything else as being very captivating and majestic and the songs have spoken to my core. I also love this version of the Biblical story. And I love the chariot race at the beginning; best score and best animation ever.
This probably ranks in my top five favorite animated films ever and one I’d certainly recommend that everyone should see. It’s creative, down right hilarious, and just all around great. For you doubters out there; yeah, I’ve been where you are right now. First time I looked at the box I was like, “Monsters? What the heck. I’m not going to waste my time.” However, when I did finally sit down to watch… well, I bought it, didn’t I? So, yeah, just put it on your ‘watch soon’ list okay? You’ll probably thank me later. And the prequel is coming out next year! I AM GOING TO DIE, I CAN’T WAIT!!!
And would you believe I can’t find a trailer for it? Oh, what the heck. Here’s it’s score instead.
The score is one of my favorite parts about this movie. No. Wait. I love the whole thing. The sled dogs, the snow, the action, the adventure, Will’s perseverance and strength, the race, the competition, the music, the sled dogs, Will, the sled dogs, the action, the sled dogs…. I really like dogs, actually. Anyway, this is a great movie!
And, yes, all four of these are part of my collection. 😀 Let’s see, which ones should I blog about next . . . . . ?
