Can't believe you've never seen 'The Wire'! What about 'Mad Men'? And all six seasons of The Americans? We just finished the first season of 'The Mandalorian'. And then we rewatched the entirety of 'Better Call Saul' again. Just while we wait for the next series of 'Stranger Things'. Penelope, I can't keep up with all this stuff you're recommending me. And in addition, how can you afford to have so many of these subscriptions To different streaming platforms?
Do you really need them all? When you can get Seinfeld for free on All4? And what I really don't get, is how you find the time to watch so many box sets, And still watch normal stuff too, like Masterchef and the news And go to work and do all the jobs that need doing. Never really been the type of guy to kill time in a sports retailer. I saw the World Cup final and I played a bit of netball as a teenager.
But all the ski-boots, bikes, dumbbells got me feeling a bit out of my depth. Then I saw you and you took away my breath. We had none. You complemented me on my unusually small feet. Bet she rides a bike to work, I work home in PJs. Got these feelings so strong. All I hear is birdsong When I see that girl on checkout six in Decathlon.
Could have got these boots from Amazon. Dreaming of the next time we can be together. We can be together. Gonna have to pop back in and browse the badminton accessories or golf sweaters Until I catch your eye.
Gazing at you from the table-tennis section. Table-tennis section. Is it maybe a bit creepy? I made this song to present to you In the hope it generates me some revenue. Nearly 18 million people share a birthday every day. Larry Hochman: In a word, universal. This is where the character Stromboli is saying by rights he can take Pinocchio from Geppetto. Geppetto will offer him anything but Pinocchio, and he ends with the thought that in my house, I have this, and this, take anything; take everything, but don't take my son from me.
It's really beautiful. In the movie as well as the show, at the end, if anyone doesn't get that it's a universal feeling already, then the whole chorus comes on with all the parents and the kids singing the same words. Fantasia WILL amaze ya.
Fantasia is the most amazing animated movie I have ever seen. It may not have the humor of Finding Nemo, nor the simple message of Dumbo. It's so different from anything else the House of Mouse ever created. But it may well be the best. It's a collection of short subjects with little or no plot, but what makes the compilation unique is that it's all matched to classical music, beautifully conducted by Leopold Stokowski, and bridged by live-action footage of the silhouettes of an orchestra, narrated by Deems Taylor.
Besides these sequences, there isn't a word of dialog. Toccata and Fugue in D Minor: This is nothing but an abstract piece of animation. You see the strings of the cello, the violin, and lots of stripes and shapes that leave trails of color in their wake. Magnificently matched to the music. There's not really that much to explain, just images. The Nutcracker Suite: An ode to nature based on Tchaikowsky's six dances.
Each dance is performed by the most unlikely dancers. Fairies, goldfish, thistles and many more perform the dances, but best of all is Art Babbit's Chinese Dance sequence, with mushrooms. The highlight of the sequence is Hob Low, a little mushroom who seems to lag behind the rest of the impeccable act. Brilliantly animated by Babbit, one of the best sequences in the movie. This is without a doubt MM's greatest performance.
The animation, especially Ugo O'Dorsi's brilliant effects, is impeccable. Funny and dramatic at the same time, everyone who's ever heard of Mickey Mouse should see The Sorcerer's Apprentice. The Rite of Spring: Igor Stravinsky's Le Sacre was originally meant to signify prehistory, but Disney has taken it much further than a series of old tribal dances.
The Rite of Spring starts out at the dawn of the planet, zooming in on our tormented home, spewing lava and rocks. Powerful scenes of the elements that ran amok, without utilizing computers at all well, they hadn't been invented yet. Then, we skip to the beginnings of life, from the life and death struggle of big bacterium vs. Skip to the dinosaurs, and the constant tyranny of the tyrannosaurus.
Many powerful dramatic scenes, beautifully set to the music, until desertification, starvation, a tidal wave and an earthquake wipes out the dinosaurs. One of the best shorts in animation history. The Pastoral Symphony: Ludwig Van Beethoven's masterpiece, instead of portraying the countryside, takes place in a mythological setting.
From Pegasus' family, and the adventures of the little black Baby Pegasus. Next movement revolves around the attempts of a bunch of butt-naked baby cupids trying to bring together single centaurs and centaurettes. Next, the exploits of the amorous and extremely drunk Bacchus and Jacchus, who join in the centaurs' wine-making.
But all is interrupted by Zeus, who chucks lightning bolts at the lot till he's bored. Next movement, and order is restored, the sun sets, and Diana fires a comet into the sky. Wonderfully animated, and perfectly matched to great music. The Dance of the Hours: Ostriches, elephants, hippos and alligators dance to Ponchielli's ballet, in a nobleman's castle, revolving around the leader of the gators, Ben Ali Gator's crush on Hyacinth Hippo.
Beautifully animated, wonderful comic relief amidst a storm of serious art. It would've been just as successful as a short cartoon. You have to see it to believe it. No, it's the crouching figure of Chernabog, a demon who calls all manner of grotesque, undead, and demonic things to himself, and tortures them in a hellish manner, disposing of them at will.
Absolutely terrifying cacodemonic animation coupled with Moussorgsky's dramatic, intimidating score. But as dawn approaches, torch-bearing pilgrims, and Schubert's Ave Maria in the background, subdue Chernabog and the demons, and they return to the Underworld as a masterpiece ends. Vladimir Tytla is the only man who could possible have pulled off this dramatic, spell bindingly horrific sequence. The best piece of animation ever.
Fantasia is something special. Music, comedy, and unadulterated evil. That's a strange mixture. But two hours of these elements come together to make what may be the best movie ever. Fantasia will amaze ya. In , Walt Disney released "Fantasia", the third feature of his studio and maybe his most ambitious project, with a beautiful combination of classical music conducted by Leopold Stokowski and animation.
The result is a movie that has been worshiped by every generation. The program, for those that have eventually never seen or want to recall, is composed by the following: 1 Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach.
My vote is eight. Title Brazil : "Fantasia". This without a doubt the greatest animated film in history. While highly acclaimed and well-known today, it was not terribly popular when it was first released. The idea of "Fantasia" is to take great pieces of music and draw animated sequences that match them. In doing so, it reverses the purpose of a movie's score; the movie serves and matches the music, not the other way around.
This set up also means that there is no typical formula plot that is present in the vast majority of movies. In the first piece, the animation is vague and abstract, but in later ones it is of definite actions, objects, and stories. The two most famous and my favorite parts are probably "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and "Rite of Spring". A Classic MovieAddict 5 December Disney's "Fantasia" is a pure classic.
What we are shown are a few animated musicals, filled with grand splendor and vivid colors. My personal favorite was always the Mickey Mouse short - one of the darkest Mickey cartoons I've ever seen.
If you haven't seen "Fantasia" yet, then you must be from another planet. It is one of the best Disney musicals ever, which some push aside and forget too easily. The first, the best, the unrivaled Vartiainen 2 June Fantasia was to be the crowning achievement of Walt Disney Studios, their magnum opus, a work of art that finally convinced the people that animated films could be more than "mere" children's entertainment.
Unfortunately, it was too much too soon. People went in expecting children's entertainment - after all, that's what Disney was known for - and instead were treated to high art. Nothing wrong with that, but you need to expect it first. And thus, Fantasia flopped financially, and what was meant to be a continuing series of films, remained just one until the turn of the century.
But oh what a film it is. Music by the best classical composers ever lived, performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra, hosted by Deems Taylor, featuring some the finest animated segments Disney had ever done. It's a stone cold classic, was from the very first moment, and it's a shame it didn't do so well.
Luckily it has gone down in history as one of Disney's finest and will be watched and appreciated for centuries to come. As for the individual segments, they're not of equal quality, though they are all very good in their own ways. The opening segment, Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, is not one of my personal favourites, but it works as a good opening intro to the idea behind Fantasia and is pretty to look at in its own way. It hasn't aged as well as some of the other segments, but it does its job more than adequately.
Nutcracker Suite, on the other hand, is fantastic. Beautiful images, perfectly accompanied by one of the most recognizable pieces of music there is. After seeing this segment once, it's hard not to see fairies and seasons dancing around whenever you hear the piece. And then there's The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Everyone knows this one and has most probably seen it, even if they haven't seen the whole film. It's the segment with the most story and is one of the strongest Mickey Mouse shorts ever made.
Grandeur, funny and even a bit threatening, it's probably the film's strongest moment. Rite of Spring is another one with a story, this time about the history of our small blue orb floating in the space.
