The Hunchback of Notre Dame
When Quasi defies the evil Frollo and ventures out to the Festival of Fools, the cruel crowd jeers him. Rescued by fellow outcast the gypsy Esmeralda, Quasi soon finds himself battling to save the people and the city he loves.
Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a dark and depressing story which is a million miles away from the happy-clappy world of Disney with its broad comedy sidekicks and song and dance routines. So it is hardly surprising that Disneyfying such a bleak tale comes with its fair share of problems. However, whilst this family friendly adaptation has its issues it is admirable that a risk averse studio would attempt such a story in the first place. It is also pleasing that they don’t exorcise the darker elements of the story completely making it, alongside The Black Cauldron, one of Disney’s oddest and most challenging animated features to date.
It has been a good few years since I…
Review In A Nutshell:
Pocahontas and The Rescuers Down Under were low points of the Disney Renaissance, and many say that after The Lion King, the era’s quality began to dip; well I knew coming into this middle-late point of the era that it isn’t true, I have seen Hercules, Tarzan, and Mulan before, and they were some of my favourite films back when I was younger, therefore I knew the era still had spark in them. I think my negative feelings towards Pocahontas and The Rescuers sequel is that they were first time watches, I had no pre-conceived ideas coming into it and the sense of nostalgia that I feel with the other films were lacking; I thought that…
An 'exotic' love interest in this, not a princess, which during this particular time, ie. the transnational push they didn't exist much. Anyway, growing up I had a fantasy of a woman who lived in a cold country and I'll elaborate. I thought that obviously since you lived in a cold country that your vagina would be cold and I thought that was entirely fascinating. So I wanted a cold vagina basically. Why? Because I don't know. I might have been weird. Cold dicks aren't recommended though.
The film is weirdly sexual. Everyone wants to bang Esmerelda up to the point where I think maybe I do too. Their singing has convinced me that she is particularly attractive. HELLFIRE!! reminds…
With its malformed protagonist and its themes of racism, lust, and moral absolutism, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" is a decidely darker step for Disney. The result of this step is an underappreciated film in Disney's canon that is nonetheless a triumphant piece of animated cinema.
Based on, and communicating the themes of, more mature and sophisitcated source material, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" Disneyfies Victor Hugo but still makes an impact. The film is a sweeping and moving epic that revels in its dark corners. Even its hallmarks of 1990s-era Disney, in this case: talking gargoyles, come off as targeting a slightly more grownup audience.
The animation is mostly straightforward, focusing on representing the detail of Paris and its…
Mejora mucho con los años (del espectador).
Hunchback is a film that gets immeasurably better the older you get. It is musical, an actual full blown musical, and once you separate it from usual Disney musicals it makes so much more sense.
This film is an experiment, both the musical elements and the blend of CGI and hand drawn animation. It's definitely the most grand they ever produced, the CGI works with Paris. The light streaming and glistening off the windows of Notre Dame is so beautiful.
I guess the best part is Hellfire. Hellfire is Disney magic through and through, it gives me chills every time I watch it. The rest if the actual score is brilliant, ringing bells and soaring choirs, but Hellfire is the shining star. Never has a boner been more dramatically sung about.
This movie gets an unnecessary bad rap, when you watch this from a standpoint of an animator some of the buildings and cathedrals are so nicely stylized and detailed that you can tell so much work went into making it. This movie also has one of the most evil Disney villains ever, where his song, character, and motives are all frightening. However my problem does come from the side characters, they are really out of place with some of their jokes and it definitely takes away from the tone of the movie.
I was honestly blown away by how good this movie is. The Hunchback of Notre Dame is one of the darkest Disney movies I've seen. The movie deals with deals like lust, discrimination, and religion, things I never thought I would see in a Disney movie. The hand drawn animation is probably the most beautiful I have ever seen. There is even a lot of CGI used but it's well done and hasn't aged poorly. Quasi Moto is such a likable protagonist and all of the rest of the characters are great. This is one of the most criminally underrated Disney movies ever, I liked it even more than The Lion King.
