    ★★★

    It's weird watching a film that has been such a big part of the public consciousness and pop culture for past few years. I had heard pretty much all of the main songs before - it's much better hearing them in context. I probably thought I would find Frozen a bit trite, I'm not sure why, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's not the most exciting or mind-blowing story, and if you had time to think you would work out…

    ★½

    I'd heard great things about Mulan, so I was expecting to really enjoy it. That way lies doom and disappointment. The story was pretty boring, and the songs didn't really do it for me. Yes, in 1998, it was probably noteworthy for the way it tackled gender roles. But it's 2018 now and I wasn't particularly impressed. Didn't love the songs. No desire to watch again any time soon.

    ★★★★

    This was cute. I was pretty tired when I watched this film (Bamb I; can't wait for the sequel Bamb II) so my brain wasn't fully engaged. I definitely wasn't able to appreciate it fully. However, it was beautiful, and I loved the attention to detail in the animation. The accents were a lovely touch, although, like Michael, I also enjoyed the long scenes without speech. I didn't find the sad moments especially sad, but that was probably my mood. For me, the sadness was mostly 'the circle of life' type sadness, which I could handle at the time.
