Film: Tangled Click for more info

It can be quite difficult separating Disney from Pixar, especially when we're talking about computer animation. It can also be quite surprising to realise that Disney has only made around five or six of them on their own (did anyone actually watch Dinosaur?). That's not to say that they're not any good without Pixar; I thoroughly enjoyed Meet the Robinsons and Bolt.

But despite that, Tangled is different. Well, different compared to where the rest of the genre is at the moment. You see, along with the last Disney flick The Princess and the Frog, Tangled goes back to classic Disney - you know, the ones with song and dance and princesses. That's not to say it wasn't sophisticated; no, it still had the subtle humour while remaining accessible to whichever kid you've taken along as your excuse to watch the film. So yes, the plot is still deep, the characters still wonderful (with Rapunzel definitely in my top five hottest animated chicks now), and the feel good factor still set to maximum.

It just also had all the fairytale stuff modern stories might arguably be lacking. So it's more a case of taste then - I'm sure many have gotten over what made the classic Disney films so, well, classic. For those of us who grew up with Aladdin and The Little Mermaid, Tangled will immediately take you back to those times again. And for that reason alone it's recommended.
