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

I already saw this movie but since it was ages ago, I was really eager to check it out again. Well, 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 their movies tend to follow the very same formulas and set of rules and even though it was fine when ‘Snow Wh... 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)

“Fantasia is so educational, and I was gob smacked by how well the animation mixed with the classical music. Can I also say that Leopold Stokowski is one of the best conductor of the 20th century, right on a parallel with Herbert Von Karajan? I was listening to Sibelius's 5th symphony a few years back, and he conducted it the year before he died, and he was in his 90s. Not only that, but that was the best version of that symphony I had ever heard. Back to Fantasia then. Each piece was expertly introduced by Deems Taylor, and unlike its sequel didn't take too long.(Even the soundtrack vignette was interesting) In the sequel, almost half of the film felt like too much introduction and not enough music. Fantasia rectified that problem brilliantly:

JaJlN2 posted a review 1 year, 6 months ago

“Fantasia es la menos popular de las películas del periodo clásico de Disney, pese a tener a Mickey Mouse, ser la mejor animada de la compañía y tener secuencias super alocadas (Disney andaba lleno de hierba lo más seguro para producir esto), a nadie le interesa hoy por hoy en lo más mínimo de lo que trataba porque, bueno, trata de nada. Verán, Fantasia más que una película convencional era un experimento, el propósito era centrarse en los límites audiovisuales que dispone la animación como medio y su estrecha relación con la música. Se presenta como una opera con secuencias abstractas entremezcladas con banda sonora ejemplar de compositores famosos, hay varios actos de personajes queridos sincronizados con ella, que dan la sensación que bailan y actúan por la misma.

You know......for kids! (180 movies items)

"It's a great film to introduce kids, to classical music. But however, fair warning: As brief, as A Night On Bald Mountain is, it's literally the stuff that nightmares are made from. The kids also, may or may not be afraid of the walking brooms, after seeing the movie."
