    The fault was that the credits were too short.

    If I'm touched and in the headspace of the movie, the credits are so important in creating a bridge between the film and the real world, a path towards leaving the room and continuing on with life, but when they were over, I wasn't ready to leave. They only served to further the feelings, the drawings that showed up, the lyrics that popped up on the bottom left of the screen,…

    Um wow I'm obsessed. The illustrative quality and the colors and the transitions and the whimsy and the humor. Everything is quite similar to the '80s TV show, but this 1952 short makes me feel so fond

    It's just the push and pull of it all, the love, the can't-stand-you of it all, the fury, the coming back together, and on and on

    The Irish were born for leaving. Otherwise the rest of the world would have no pubs.

    "That's your problem. You don't want to be in love. You want to be in love in a movie."

    I'm upset that I got scammed into viewing this because of a TV show about soccer.

    The environment? That's good. You know the air has mist in it just by watching

    The "love at first sight" of stalking someone and thinking there can be something sweeping out of absolutely nothing, not knowing someone at all? Repulsive! But like it's not about that but it is but

    Really loved the father-son relationship, nearly cried when they reunited, what a miracle on 34th street.

    Impossible for this to have not been such an utter explosion of feeling.

    Breathe is a very special number for me, and it really did a number ON me, I was crying nearly harder than I ever had at a movie, just sobbing at this song, with Nina really there, and the bridge really being manifested

    There's doses of things that are awkward and are just /too much/ like earnest singing and dancing and dreaming can work but, uh, "Lemme…

    FIRST MOVIEGOING SINCE MARCH 2020. One other person in the theater. I saw this because I thought it'd be hilarious to say, in years to come, "Yeah, my first movie back was called Dream Horse."

    And...accidentally loved it. Like, it's a horse movie, it made me feel things, I cried. It's set in Wales and it was just so good to see soft gentle moments on a huge screen, in comfy seats. As one does at the movies. The pictures.…

    *ben franklin smoking.jpg* I liked it? A lot? Went along for the stupid ride and had a [really ?] good time

    Somehow? Somehow!!! Like nearly every joke hit for me.

    The Song Along scene? Isn't that what life and art is all about? Pure euphoric!

    Once a year you have to give a free pass to a movie where some guy treats a woman who is so much better than him awfully and still gets the girl. Once a year

    How was this rated G, is the MPAA out of their minds? This ended up akin to a horror movie at the end. Too much stapstick, for my liking.

    In the animated version, there’s a lot of dogs just like, walking, which can get tedious, but the vibe in it, the stylization, the feeling, it combined to be alright. Here, it was just dogs
