The Little Mermaid

The nostalgia is heavy with this one for me. Coming out in winter 1989, I was two-years-old and this was the first movie I saw in theaters. Apparently, the opening shark attack frightened me so that I refused to leave my mother’s lap until the appearance of Scuttle, at which point I had calmed down enough to sit on my own, and was completely enraptured by the viewing experience. I’ve since wat... read more

MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME!

The Little Mermaid, is a brilliantly animated musical about the glory of becoming human. Colorful animation, wonderful songs and unspoiled heroism make this a great movie. Flowing with good characters and values, The Little Mermaid is one of Disney's best pictures.

The enchanting story begins at sea, where red-haired Ariel, a 16-year-old mermaid who longs to have legs, fins around w... read more

The Little Mermaid became the start of the 10 Disney Renaissances (others are The Rescuers Down Under, Beauty And The Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontas, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, Hercules, Mulan and Tarzan) and what a great success and breakthrough it became! It was the first animated musical from Disney since The Jungle Book. I think the message of this film is that it shows how much p... read more

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If The Little Mermaid is your favorite movie....then you are a princess, a goddess atop an ivory tower (paradoxically). You also surreptitiously and hopefully long to return to childhood, that magical time of beautiful Christmases and toys (sans the dinglehoppers) and the hope of an earth-shattering and smoldering love to come, that you dreamt of, looked forward to. At the beach you scan the crowd for a white and fairly worn shirt, rolled up to the elbows (this is the reason I wear these shirts "

Absolutely superb!

“I also recommend the TV series, but not the sequel. I still think that Tarzan is the last great Disney movie, but pretty much everything else after lacks the magic that Disney once had, as far as I'm concerned.(with the exception of the surprisingly good Fantasia 2000, Bambi 2 and Emperor's New Groove) 10 years ago, this was one of my all-time favourites. I remember, every time I went swimming, I felt really inspired to be a mermaid. That's the effect this movie and the TV series had on me. The animation is absolutely gorgeous, especially the underwater scenes, and the storm. The script is intelligent and witty, and everyone involved did a marvellous job putting it across. The songs are fantastic, as always with Alan Menken. In fact, the only score of Alan Menken's I don't like is "Home on” read more

“Terrible película con mensajes dañinos en los que la villana tenía todas las de ganar y en ningún momento demuestran por que Ariel no debió tener las consecuencias permanentes que ya había adquirido.

-Tritón odia a los humanos por que se comen y esclavizan como mascotas a sus ciudadanos (jamás le prueban lo contrario)

-Ariel se "enamora" de un príncipe por guapo al que jamás le dan mas caracterización.

-La bruja se da cuenta de que la hija testaruda de tritón haría cualquier cosa por su capricho y la hace ceder todo en un contrato, incluyendo su cuerpo.

-La bruja le quita la voz por que dice que a los chicos no les debes de hablar para conquistarlos, solo basta la belleza superficial (y la peli le da la razón)

-Al final Arie” read more

“This time, Hans Christian Anderson rescues the Disney animation factory from the fire - this is a wonderfully colourful and fun adaptation of his almost Faustian story of being very careful what you wish for. "Ariel" is a beautiful mermaid who is fascinated by what goes on ashore - and that only gets more obsessive when she espies, and ultimately rescues from a violent storm, the equally gorgeous "Prince Eric" and falls hook, line and sinker. Her sagacious father "King Triton" forbids her from seeing him again and so, like any resourceful teenager, she enters a pact with evil sea witch "Ursula" that allows her to become human for three days and go ashore to seek out her new love - but at what cost... The support characters are so good in this - especially Samuel Wright as the long-sufferin” read more

"You can sure see why this is the pattern all the 90s Disney films started taking after. It's very, very good and has a creative passion unlike the ones that followed (save for like Treasure Planet). "

"The originally story and ending, was more darker and depressing. That Ursula, is one of the most scariest Disney villains, of all time, and for a very good reason too. Also, Sebastian The Crab, gets into a very close call as well."
