Review of Fantasia

There comes a time in every critic's life, in which they have to give a negative review to a well known and loved classic. Unfortunately, I am in the situation of giving a negative review to one of the best known and best received animated films of all time; Fantasia.

Fantasia really doesn't have a plot of any kind. Instead, it boasts a unique premise. We are introduced at the begi... read more

A good movie

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point (in fact, recently, I was planning to watch it on Netflix but they just removed it…). Anyway, I always had a weak spot for this feature. Indeed, there is one thing that always bothered me with Disney’s animated features and it is their terrible lack of originality. Basically, all ... read more

Don't see what's so good about this one.

This film was really bizzare because there wasnt really a story to it. It was a mixture of different collections of stories. It is one of those films that a lot of people love because of its beauty and inspiring music but there are a lot of people that hate it because it is boring. I didnt hate it I just didnt like it that much. I think that it is a mixture of shorts that Disney thought of and he ... read more

Description: An innovative and revolutionary animated classic from Walt Disney, combining classical music masterpieces with imaginative visuals, presented with Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra. The eight animation sequences are colorful, impressive, free-flowing, abstract, and often surrealistic pieces. They include the most famous of all, Paul Dukas' "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" with Mickey Mouse as the title character battling brooms carrying endless buckets of water. Also Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor," Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite," dinosaurs and volcanoes in Stravinsky's "Rite ... (more)

Elokuvapäiväkirja (199 movies items)

"27.2.2018 Fantasia on Disneyn kunnianhimoisin projekti. Valitettavasti se on myös epätasainen kasa ideoita, joista rikollisen moni on toteutettu puolivillaisesti. Pahinta on teoksen lävistävä tietoinen yritys tavoitella niin valistusta kuin korkeakulttuuria, mutta joka kerta yritys lässähtää studion sentimentaalisuuteen. Elokuvan parhaat episodit ovat vesianimaationsa puolesta komea Mikki noidan oppipoikana ja lopun Yö Kyöpelivuorella. Orkestereiden väliosuudet ovat valaistuksensa j"

Movie Reviews (301-350) (50 movies items)

" Concert animation film consisting of short films synchronized to classic music. I felt that "Fantasia" has memorable moments. My favorite was the somber "Night on the Bald Mountain", the Mickey Mouse one and probably the first one that is a more abstract short movie. It do have a problematic rhythm though as there is a lot of the short films that are too long and boring as animals, mythic creatures, crocodile and hippos are dancing to some music which makes it feel like something we have since "

"Disney's legendary cartoon fantasy, which animates beloved selections of classical music, is still a freewheeling visual delight to this day."

"13.3. Walt Disneyn kokeellisessa pööpöilyssä hienosti pukeutunut herrasmies kertoo katsojille jokaisen kohtauksen sisällön, koska katsojat eivät ilmeisesti ole tekijöiden mielestä tarpeeksi älykkäitä seuraamaan juonellisia lyhäreitä ilman dialogia. Täysin juonettomat ja inhimillisiä hahmoja vailla olevat jaksot voisivat olla oikein kivoja, mutta katsojan aliarvointi ärsyttää. Klassinen musiikki ei sovi kokeelliseen elokuvaan niin hyvin kuin painajaisdrone. Elokuvan BD-julkai"

" There's something odd about classic Disney films: they seem educational and innocent while scaring the hell out of children, and Fantasia is no exception. A cross between a silent film and a musical, Fantasia is probably the pinnacle in the marriage of animation and music. It's hard to believe such a timeless piece of experimental filmmaking was first released in 1940; nothing like it existed before that time and, frankly, nothing has matched it since. "
