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)

"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. "

Animate This! My Favorite 2-D Animated Movies (30 movies items)

" At the time when the first Fantasia film was completed, this was only the third in Disney's full feature cinema released canon and it set out to integrate classical music with animation in eight featurettes with the purpose of having each medium compliment the other. The power of the music was enhanced by the visuals of each short (with various degrees of success of course) while at the same time, the hand crafted artwork of each cell seemed to be powered by the notes and melodies of each time"

"Re-watch - June 18th It's been almost 20 years since I last watched Fantasia, and as such I'd kinda forgotten about some of it. Certainly not the segment pictured above, which I first saw in elementary school & has forever stuck with me. But the first segment I didn't recall at all (though seeing it again I'm not too surprised as it's probably the weakest one of the bunch), nor the bit with the soundtrack. Having revisited this after its sequel, one thing I noticed is that having a single perso"
